30-Second Review: Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm

If you follow me on Instagram (@whattheclique), you might have seen my Instagram story yesterday about receiving the Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm. I tested it last night, and am giving a brief review today on my blog. (This is not sponsored) 


I also received free gifts with my Clinique purchase from Nordstrom, and got a ton of fun stuff! 

Prior to trying this Clinique product, I had been using Neutrogena makeup removing wipes. However, I recently decided I wanted to shy away from products with alcohol in them and be kinder to my skin. This Clinique product was one of the first alternatives I found, and it by far exceeded my expectations. It really did melt away my makeup from the day! The cleansing balm transforms from a balm into an oil, and then finally into something resembling a cleanser.


I read a couple reviews saying that this product left their skin feeling greasy. I didn’t find this was the case for me at all. My skin felt clean and refreshed. The only thing I can figure is that those customers used too much of the product. A little really does go a long way even if it doesn’t seem like it at first!

Have you guys tried this product before? What do you think?
