Clinique – Take the day off cleansing balm

I bet i’m not the only one that dreads taking my makeup off sometimes, especially after a night out! Luckily, Clinique has the perfect product that will become your best friend

I hate tugging around my eyes with a cotton pad and a removed that just doesn’t do anything or that takes ages to remove my mascara and eyeliner! With this product i don’t have to even use a cotton pad! Just simply dampen your face, take a small amount of the balm and gently massage around your face and eyes, the balm melts the makeup off your face! Then rinse, rinse, rinse with warm water! Ta-da! ALL makeup is gone in one go!

It retails for 29 Euro for 125ml. Irish and UK shoppers can find it HERE

I however do not use this everyday! I use this on days when i have worn eyeliner or more heavy makeup such as after a night out and i need a miracle product – this is the one!


I just can’t say enough good stuff about this cleansing balm! Suitable for all skin types and suits even sensitive skin! There is an alternative to it though (might be several other “dupes” out there) from The Body Shop! It retails for 19.50 Euro and contains 90ml (the Clinique one has 125ml) I haven’t tried it myself, but it’s definitely on the list to try!


These pictures were taken after i used it a couple of times. Now i’m almost all out of product. So, conclusion here – i will definitely repurchase this one when i’m all out… which is like now haha!

If i could change something with this product it would be the packaging. Would be better if it came in a tube rather than a jar so you don’t have to stick your fingers in it, but not sure it the formula would stay the same then.

Have you tried this one or the one from The Body Shop? Perhaps something similar? Let me know! Also, just a reminder of my “new” instagram also named theswejournal, give it a follow or perhaps you prefer my personal instagram. Check out the widget on the right hand side

  1. I’ve been wanting to purchase this for the longest time. But, then I discovered the one from the Body Shop that is a little cheaper… still haven’t tried it though lol I can’t make a decision
