Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm ($29) is a makeup remover and cleanser that starts out life as a balm bot emulsifies to an oil when water is applied. This is a great pick for those with drier skin that need a cleanser that won’t strip skin or make it tighter after use.
Let’s take a look!
This is a thick, emollient balm with a soft, waxy consistency that can be applied to a dry face. Simply scoop a little out of the tub and massage it around your face and eyes. Add a little water to emulsify the balm, it’ll break down and go milky, and slowly massage it around your face. Now rinse! Done!
It breaks down makeup very easily and leaves behind a clean, fresh face without leaving behind a film or leaving skin feeling tight after use. It contains absolutely no fragrance and is mad up of different emoillents and plant oil that act to dissolve makeup easily without drying skin out.
My skin is extra dry lately so this is a perfect way to get all my makeup off without causing my skin to flake up and freak out! It’s very gentle, it rinses clean away, and it gives skin a nice, deep cleanse without a ton of work.
If you have drier skin this is a great way to remove makeup! E.L.F.’s version is cheaper but I felt a little tight after using it so I do prefer the Clinique formula a little better!
