Review: Clinique Take the Day Off Balm

Hey guys!

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,



Who Doesn’t Like to FeelUnique…?

Happy Thursday everyone!

Today is an exciting day because my FeelUnique order came a’knocking on my doorstep! This is the first time I have bought make-up on the internet…I’ll pause for a second while shock wears off…I really like to see the product and the size before buying typically, but I have to be honest, no matter how hard I fight it, the age of the internet has caught me in its big ole claw and here I am online shopping and blogging. Anyway, lets get to the make up!!


Now, since the Naked Smokey pallet has just hit the UK, I know that this choice may not be too popular because…..I got the Naked 3 pallet! And I am really happy about it. I went on with the intention to buy the Smokey pallet, but my practical side kicked in and I love the colours (and I can wear them to work, like, everyday…not so much with a smokey eye). I know this is nothing new but how pretty are these colours?!

I also got the Benefit Stay Flawless 15 Hour Primer. I am not someone who typically wears a primer because I don’t even wear foundation on a day-to-day basis, I just don’t like the feel. I do, however, do my darnest to keep the cover-up on under my eyes. Due to this, I have been meaning to get a primer for so so long now and I love Benefit so here it is folks, my new primer. Ta da! It feels like it will have a nice skin feel and will be nice and light, just what I am looking for. I also have to mention the packaging….uh, how cute is that?!?! Of course, I will let y’all know what I think of the product in a few weeks time, but for now, has anyone used it? What are your thoughts??


Lastly, and I am so excited about these bad boys, I got the First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads. I have been meaning to try these for about 2 years (I know….yikes…) I always hear good things about this range but just haven’t gotten around to trying it yet, so I am so stoked that I finally can hold these babies in my hand. I think we all know what I will be doing tonight….face wipin’!

Also, as a little bonus because I spent so much money, FeelUnique threw in two little samples. I chose the Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Serum for myself and a little sample of the Jean Paul Gaultter Ultra-Male for my boyfriend as a little surprise (at 0.02 fl oz I really know how to spoil my man :p). Not a clue what it smells like, I’m waiting for him to give it a try first. Anyone try this out yet?


Again, let me know what you guys think of these products and let me know if there are any other products you think I should give a go! I always love hearing about what other people use!
