Taking off makeup has to be the second best thing after taking off your bra after a long day. No matter how tired I am from a long day/night out it’s still coming off no questions asked.
The clinique take the day off cleansing balm has been featured on different beauty blogs and it was just one of those products that I wanted to try but I hadn’t had the chance to yet.
Fast forward to August 2017 when I got a free sample from a clinique counter (one of the reason I love clinique). I was super excited to try it to see what the hype was all about. I used it one night when I had a cake load of makeup on. You know those days where you wish you could just tell Siri to take off your makeup.
I scooped a bit of the clinique cleansing balm and massaged it on my face. When I tell you I felt my ‘makeup face’ melting I wouldn’t be kidding. The cleansing balm melted all of my make up including my eye makeup and lipstick. After that I wiped off the melted balm mixed with makeup with cotton pads and voila my original face was back.
The clinique cleansing balm does not leave your face looking like a grease ball at all however, as a creature of habit I still cleanse my face again with my trusted anti blemish cleanser just once and moisturize right after.
Usually with makeup on I’ll have to go in with my cleanser a couple more times which my skin does not agree with because it gets really dry when that happens. Also I’ve learnt that face cleansers are to be used on makeup free skin to remove dirt and bacteria not to remove makeup. That is the reason why pre-cleansers such as the cleansing balm, makeup wipes, eye makeup removers are very important in your skincare regimen.
P.S. You also use less of your cleanser when you pre clean your face.
