I am sharing one of my favourite products with you today and that is the Clinique Take the Day Off Balm. I am sure you have all heard of the Liz Earl Cleanse and Polish, which is a fantastic way to take your makeup off and cleanse your face, BUT, when I am not using that I reach for my Take the Day Off Balm.
This product is so good for taking your makeup off at the end of the day. It starts as a balm, which I would say is very similar to coconut oil. You only need a little bit and it starts to melt into an oil as your body heat warm it up. As you work this all over your face it just melts the make up off and you are left looking a bit like a raccoon but as you wash it off with warm water, it turns into a creamy consistency and poof, makeup is gone!
I was a little skeptical about using an oil, since I do have a very oily t-zone, but this doesn’t leave an oily feeling on the skin. It just gets in there, removes all of the makeup and then washes away. Also, as with all Clinique products, it is allergy tested and fragrance free, so it does the job without causing any irritation.
After the makeup is gone, I then continue with cleansing my face and the rest of my skin care routine. So, if you are frustrated with never feeling like you truly got all of the makeup off, give this a try!
Until next time,
