I do not use Clinique Take the Day Off cleansing balm daily...but I find that if I have done a heavy coating of mascara...this is the best product to effectively take it all off! It is a solid balm that transforms from a solid into a silky oil upon application. I put a small scoop in my hands and gently massage it over my face and eyes for about a minute. I then rinse with water. Although it says opthalmologist tested...I always take my contacts off first so I don't know if it would irritate my contacts or not. It is NOT a face cleanser...so I follow with my usual skin care regime after. I have read some reviews which said it gave them acne...I have NOT had this problem with this product....but again...I do not use it daily and I follow with my usual cleanser and moisturizers after. It is available at Sephora and Ulta as well as Clinique counters. $29.50.
