Clinique Take The Day Off Balm Review

clinique take the day off balm

There is no denying when it comes to skincare Clinique is right up there with some of the best, they have been around for years I mean some of my first memories visiting my aunts house was her 3 step cleansing regime with the yellow soap, purple toner and yellow moisturiser!

Fast forward a few years I find myself browsing the Clinique counter when I’m on the lookout for a new skincare product (and of late make up!) Needless to say the Clinique Take the Day off balm has been on my wishlist for years! For a long time I thought it was a myth or that it would be one of those products that would never hit the South African shore BUT I am happy to say it’s here and I could not be happier. It has totally lived up to the hype!

Take the day off balm is exactly that a make up remover balm to literally take off the make up from the day. It basically melts the make up straight off your face in about 2 minutes. A tiny bit is needed for the whole face which makes it great value for money (R295). The balm melts to an oil with the heat of your hands this allows it to spread as you massage away the make up then use a warm face cloth to literally take the day off 🙂

The take the day off balm works on all make up, waterproof or not red lipstick or nude, it is simply a game changer when it comes to make up removal. It is gentle on the eyes and doesn’t leave that weird film over your eyelids/lashes like some oil’s and balms do.

I made a little video demonstrating just how easy it is to use the Clinique Take The Day off Balm…..


Sometimes make up can be a really amazing thing but sometimes it’s just as nice to take off as put it on.
