Product: Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm Mini

INR 890 for 30ml
INR 3,200 for 125ml

What it is: Clinique’s Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm is the no.1 makeup remover in a silky balm formula.

How to use: Take the balm and massage using fingertips on your face to take your makeup off. Rise or wipe it using a cloth/wipe or water.

About the product: Lightweight makeup remover quickly dissolves tenacious eye and face makeups, sunscreens. Transforms from a solid balm into a silky oil upon application. Cleans thoroughly, rinses off completely. Gently helps remove the stress of pollution so skin looks younger, longer. Non-greasy and non-drying formula. Ophthalmologist tested. For all skin types.

Packaging: The product comes packaged in a lavender colored jar with a silver cap on it. The packaging is pretty simple, yet looks beautiful and elegant. The name of the product with the details are mentioned on the jar itself. I have the mini version of it so this is very travel friendly. It’s small and convenient to carry around. As you open the cap, you can see the soft wax kind of balm inside the jar. It doesn’t really have any such fragrance except for a very slight balmy sort of smell which is again not too strong. I really like its packaging.

Texture of the product: The balm is semi-solid and has a very silky soft texture, which immediately melts as you scoop it out and rub it between your fingers or you can directly massage it onto your face. The balm seem white in the jar but is absolutely transparent once you start massaging it. It doesn’t feel too oily or too drying on the face and immediately breaks down all the makeup, be it waterproof or any sort of makeup, which is what I love about this product.

Features of the product: The balm comes in a semi-solid balmy form, but as soon as it comes in contact with the skin, it immediately starting melting into an oil like consistency and dissolves even the most stubborn makeup. I like how this product makes taking makeup off super easy. This balm is suitable for all skin types. The formula is non-greasy and non-drying, fragrance free and allergy tested. It Is also ophthalmologist tested. It doesn’t make your skin dry or even greasy. It just simply takes your makeup off, be it eye makeup, or lipstick or all those layers of your base makeup, it melts it all away in one go!

Effects & Experience: So I’m not much into cleansing balms and oils, since I don’t wear too much makeup every day or generally. I have a few go-to products in terms of taking my makeup off and they do the job pretty well. But with all the hype around for this product, I thought to give it a shot and bought a mini. Here’s what I think about this product.
To start with, I really like the lavender colored packaging, it looks so pretty sitting on the dressing. As soon as you open the lid, you see a semi-solid balm in the jar. All you need to do is scoop out a bit and either massage it on your fingers or apply directly and then massage it onto your face to melt your makeup. I like to apply it directly and then massage it on my face as it doesn’t get messy this way.
So coming back to my experience, I got it a while ago but I was waiting to test it out when I was wearing a bit extra makeup than usual, just to test it out better and see how it works. I had a lot of makeup on the day I used it the first time, and I started massaging this on my face, eyes, lips, everywhere, and believe me you guys, it took me 30 seconds before all my makeup melted in one go. I had two coats of waterproof mascara, eyeliner, eye shadow, a long lasting lipstick, and a stubborn base. But this product melted it all away like it’s nothing! After I’m done massaging, I generally wipe all the gunk with either a wet wipe or cotton pads. And the best part about it is that it doesn’t leave my face feeling super dry or greasy once I wipe everything off. Also, it’s absolutely safe to use on your eyes so it doesn’t irritate your eyes at all when you’re massaging your eyes with this to take off the makeup. I really enjoy using this product and see my makeup coming off effortlessly.

Conclusion: Overall, I love this product. Taking makeup off can be such a task sometimes, and if your product doesn’t help you effortlessly, it can be annoying for you and even for your skin. But this product here makes taking makeup off so easy and convenient. The texture of the balm is silky smooth and as soon as it comes in contact with the skin, it melts like a dream into the skin. It melts away all the makeup within seconds, be it waterproof or any stubborn makeup. You only need to massage the balm everywhere gently, and it does the job. I love how this method and this product is not harsh on the skin, neither it dries out your skin, and nor it makes it greasier. It is 100% allergy tested and safe to use on any skin type. It doesn’t have any fragrance or chemicals which makes it the best balm to use.
