A cult beauty favourite, the Clinique Take The Day Off cleansing balm seems to be in the beauty cabinets of every skincare and beauty guru.

After reading and watching many rave reviews, I thought it was finally time to try it myself. I’m always trying to up my skincare routine, and wanted to add a cleansing balm into my collection, especially for double cleansing which I’m pleased to say is a habit that has stuck!

The balm is super lightweight and if you have oily skin like me, it’s also very moisturising without being too heavy. Using my fingers I gently massaged the product into my skin, and after a few seconds the balm quickly removed all traces of eye and face make-up (apparently sunscreen too which I’m yet to try, but good to know with spring/summer around the corner!).

The product transforms from a solid balm, into a silky fluid oil. Oil is GREAT for fighting oil, so it’s a must have for those with oily skin prone to breakouts. I love how it left my face feeling hydrated as if I had just moisturised, so it really does feel like an everyday 2 in 1 product. The brand claims it is suitable for all skin types, and I would definitely agree that those with sensitive and oily skin can use this. You only need to use a very small amount, and so I can see this product lasting for a very long time!

Overall for an everyday product that does what it claims to do, won’t irritate your skin and isn’t too pricey- the Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm is for you!

It’s £23.00 for 125ml and you can purchase here
