Clinique Take the day off Cleansing Balm – If it has been one of these days | Doctors Review


Sometimes, the day is not your friend.
The alarm goes off way to early, someone finished your favorite tea without bothering to tell you (or let alone go get some more) and after running errands all day long you notice the top you choose to wear as a pick-me-up has peanut butter stains all over the back (don’t ask…)

And on days like that, you need some comfort. You need someone to treat you gently, softly, to be kind to you and to help you get rid of the day.
Now think about your skin.
All day long it is harassed by fumes and UV-Rays, covered in makeup and the grime from little touching hands, stripped by wind and air-condition.

Don’t you think it wants the same love and care?

And here balm cleansers come into play, the gentle, soothing way for your skin to relax.

What the Clinique Take the Day off Cleansing Balm claims

Lightweight makeup remover quickly dissolves tenacious eye and face makeups, sunscreens. Transforms from a solid balm into a silky oil upon application. Cleanses thoroughly, rinses off completely. Non-greasy. Non-drying. Ophthalmologist Tested. For all skin types.

Facts about the Dr G R.E.D Blemish Clear Soothing Cream

Prize and size

The balm comes in a pot containing 125 ml and is available for 29,99 € on the website here.
On the Clinique website a rebuy-cycle of eight weeks is recommended, but after using it once daily for three months, I still have about half of the product left.


Texture and scent

The consistency is thick, but the balm easily melts when massaged onto your dry face, turning into an oily texture. If I just rinse with warm water, a little oiliness stays on my face, but if you are using a wash cloth for removal, there is no residue.
No smell, neither pleasant nor unpleasant can be detected.

Ingredients of the Clinique Take the Day off Cleansing Balm


Hover the mouse over an ingredient for short explanation. Read more on INCIDecoder.

The Safflower Seed Oil used here is high in linoleic and low in oleic acid, which makes it a good choice for acneic skin and a natural source of Vitamin E, which is also added additionally in form of Tocopherol.


Does it live up to its claims?


It is fragrance free, suited for all skin types and cleanses thoroughly without stinging my eyes.


Will I repurchase and which skin types do I recommend the Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm to?


I have already repurchased several times over the last years, as I do love a good cleansing balm in winter. It is suitable for all skin types with the exception of those whose skin is too sensitive to use a wash cloth or do a Double Cleanse, as I don’t feel it rinses completely clean.
