Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover | Beauty

If you have read my previous post about the Rakuten Affiliate Network Bonus Box post you'll know that I received this little gem in my box. 

This is the Clinique Take The Day Off makeup remover, I haven't used this makeup remover before actually and was pretty excited to try it out. What you can't see in the picture above is that it it's a clear liquid that kinda separates into two so you've gotta shake it up before you use it. Regular reader will know I'm rather fussy what I put on my face, I'm always concerned it's going to bring me out in spots so I'm always a little apprehensive with facial products. 

This product suggests it's suitable for all skin types which is really great and it's gentle enough to use on your eyes and 100% fragrance free. There are lots of benefits of this product that I definitely can get on board with, if it's gentle and does the job then I'm happy. However that being said, I applied it to my cotton pad and then went to use it on my face and found that it is a little oily for my liking, it left a bit of a residue on my skin that I really hated. I don't really like using oil based products and whilst my skin in a little dry I tend not to use oily products. Also, I kind of have a weird thing about cotton wool, I hate it, it makes my teeth feel funny, I'm weird I know. So when I use cotton pad I like to make them fairly wet because then it doesn't feel too much like cotton wool, but this product doesn't really sink into the pad enough so when I wiped it across my face it make me cringe a little. 

Enough of my weird phobias, whilst I didn't like the oily texture did it remove my make up? It did, amazingly. I know this because after I removed my make up, I used micellar water after it and the pad was clean, not a hint of make up was left. Really impressive. As it worked so well, I temped to persevere with the texture and use it more for when I go all dramatic with my eye make up as opposed to everyday. It's a great product and if you are used to oil based cleansers/make up removers then you'll love this.

  2. Clinique cleansing balm is great, I finished it so quickly :( This one sounds great! xx


    1. Ah I've not tried the cleansing balm! Might check it out!xx

  3. I used to use this product and felt the same, it was super oily and made my eyes hurt a bit from all the oil! I now use Estee Lauder Gentle Eye Make-up Remover which is amazing, haven't looked back since!
