Clinique Take The Day Off Balm - Review


I bought this cleansing balm a few months ago, after hearing amazing reviews. 
And i am so pleased i did, as it's the best cleanser i've ever used. 
I wish i tried this sooner! It does such a brilliant job of taking off my makeup! 

It's a solid balm, that melts to an oil when you apply it to your skin,  I was quite worried about this at first, considering i already have oily skin, i didn't want it any oilier, but it thoroughly cleanses my face and leaves my skin feeling soft and silky with no residue. 
I use this once in the morning, and twice in the evening to make sure my skin is thoroughly cleansed. I massage this onto dry skin, and then use a warm wet flannel to remove my make up, cleanse my face, and then I pat dry. 

This cleanser is suitable for all skin types, which is great as I have combination skin. I suffer with an oily t-zone, with dry cheeks and nose. I also have very sensitive, red skin.
It does not irritate my skin or my eyes at all, it leaves my skin feeling clean, fresh and silky. It also doesn't leave my face feeling dry and tight, which i find happens with a lot of cleansers i've tried. 
I paid £22 for this, which some people might find expensive for a cleanser, but it lasts ages, and it's worth every penny in my opinion. 

I've seen a dramatic difference in my skin since using this, and it didn't take long for the results to start showing! After using this once, my skin felt smooth, and after a week my skin was so much clearer, and also less red and irritated. It has such a calming effect on my skin which is what i've been needing, especially after a day of wearing make up, I don't want to be scrubbing away trying to get it all off and causing more damage and irritation to my skin, so this cleanser is perfect, as i only have to gently massage this in and wipe away, and the majority of my make up is gone!

I highly recommend this cleanser!
