Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm Review

Hello, I'm back! I'm sorry about the lack of posts these last few months. I don't even have an excuse! I just got the blogging bug again and have been dying to come back, so here I am!

After the super buzz the Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm generated on the blogging world, I've been really intrigued by cleansing balms. However, I never did have the courage to splash out on it, so I began to inactively search for cheaper options. The most interesting looking one I ended up running into was the Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm. If I'm honest though, I don't usually get overly excited about anything Clinique, so I kept looking. And then Ruth Crilly posted this very positive review on it on her blog, so needless to say... I went ahead and bought it! haha

It comes in a huge purple tub, no box, no nothing. It's not the most attractive packaging, but I guess it serves it's purpose. This is one of those products that are very straight forward and to the point, no fiddling with this one! It is a very hard substance, so it's very hard to scoop out more than you need. I'm guessing this tub is gonna last me ages! You have to rub it between your fingers to melt it down a bit and then apply to the face. It actually feels really nice when you're massaging it in. It is also fragrance free, as all Clinique products are. It works amazingly well removing make up, it even gets rid of my most stubborn water proof mascara in one go, which I love! I've been using it morning and night and my skin feels softer and more plump after I use it. I am SOLD!

To the oily skin ladies out there: this has never made me oily and doesn't leave any residue on to the skin. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone (as had Caroline Hirons, so don't take my word for it, take hers!).

The Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm is £21 for 100ml and it's available at most Boots stores.


  1. Thanks for the review. I missed you!

  2. Seems great! Need to try it now

    Great blog, do check out mine too, Ive done a skincare review in a Ren mask...


  3. I may give this a go. I'm using the Elemis one which I love but my favourite is Emma Hardie and they're both still very pricey. At £21 this is a bargain!

  4. Oh wow this sounds beautiful... £21 is so reasonable as well for a cleansing balm. I've never tried one before, but I would love to :) everyone seems to love them xxx

  6. This sounds so beautiful and definitely really reasonably priced too compared to a lot of other cleansers I've been hearing a lot about in recent weeks. Balms are the best, I like how they work for all skin types <3

  12. I love this cleanser too - strange that it's not so popular because it's pretty good! :) x

  13. Oh this is incredible! I love this cleanser. I went through 4 jars in the past, it was so good for my dry skin. Now I'm trying the Antipodes one, and I'm in love with it as well. Next on my to-try list are the Emma Hardie one and the Ren cleansing balm in a tube *__*I love my balms :)

  14. I love cleansing balms, but have never tried this one...I should add it to my wishlist!

  15. Welcome back! I have been very intrigued by the rise of the cleansing balms that are appearing all over blogs and YT. This is a great review as I'd seen this product and generally like, but not love Cliniques products but didn't want to 'splash the cash' before reading some positives about it. Looks like you've just cost me £21 ha ha!
