Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

God! I hate it. I hate it when people preach inside beauty of ours is more relevant compared to our outside beauty. Are you kidding me? Are you agreeing to this, what the hack, one hack of a confusing within inside us hack of a beauty statement? You actually believe it? Beats me why. Can you for once, for my sake, for once stop believing the wise cracks who keep harping on prettiness inside. As if we really don't know people actually, yes they do, judge us by our outside beauty? As if we don't know our face persona is a matter of relevance for every opportunity, for love, for friendship and for our own beauty happiness? Of course. Stop doubting yourself. Our face is without a doubt the first attraction. The first thing people notice even before nothing more, nothing less. Listen. I am not saying we must look drop dead gorgeous, but potentially a clean and clear skin says a lot about the person we are. Doesn’t it say we take charge of ourselves? Absolutely. Nevertheless, the choice by right, by your birth right, by far is yours. If you prefer to look run down, shabby and beauty unruly, by all means, go ahead. Who am I, neither do I want or should I decide on your behalf? Whether you prefer to look beauty tattered or you want to keep it going by putting effort in looking presentable, its up to you. 

Potentially, everything, trust me, when our face is a concern, must begin and end with cleansing. Yes. Twice a day. For stripping down whatever we have applied for the day, prior to night beauty pampering (Olay Total Effects Night Cream, Sephora Sleeping Mask & Garnier Night Restore Cream) and can you, first thing first in the morning, cleanse as well?  If I am not mistaken, if my fifties age is yet to fail me, I still can recall we have already spoken about cleansing (Biotique Bio Morning Face Wash)? Not once? I did also share my personal view why I prefer a single, all-in-one cleanser? Why I like to keep cleansing to its most basic humbleness (Sephora Soothing Cleansing Milk)? I could have, if I wanted to, buy the same product again. Then again, I decided to go against my beauty tide for a new beauty venturing cleansing. In and out of a couple of beauty stores, mind and body tiring mind you at my age and I think the older we get, the less virtue of ours to crowd? I know. My beauty cleansing mission eventually was halted at Clinique store. Lending both my ears attentively to the elderly lady SA who had her beauty expertise and experience at her age, one up for women like us in our fifties, she genuinely nailed it. Paying RM140.00, Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm is already at my beauty helms for the past two months.

On the shelve of my bathroom, indeed, Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm took a spot in my bathroom because I am one person who must and love tap water splashing and rinsing. I need water, generously, as a mean for waking up my face senses instead of conforming to tissue wiping in the room. Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm on that account is an ultimate cleansing meeting point of mine. In tandem as I prefer. To use, a single finger of mine is swiped atop the wide mouth purplish container once the silver cover is twist opened. For taking/scooping 1/3 to the measurement of a teaspoon, of this oily, creamy and white in color balm. Tentatively enough. In other words, what I am trying to say is that more does not mean better. Just stick to the measurement as your instinct will decide for you. For your whole face cleansing, including removing your eye makeup, moisturiser, sunblock, compact powder and eye cream. Basically, Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm is akin a one stop beauty center for cleansing off whatever you have applied on your face. Especially after work or like me who sweat twenty-four seven for no valid apparent reason. Immaterial where I am and what I do.    
Once you have scooped the balm, rub it with both your hands, followed by massaging it on your face. Next of course is the water splashing and rinsing I have been talking about. Leaving me thoroughly cleansed without eating into my natural oils, this rather thick and no smell balm, really, I really can't whiff no smell, maybe a faint scent, that too nothing you should be concern about, Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm, trust me, is really worthy being praised as a favourable cleanser for my sensitive combination skin. No breakouts, non irritable, nor do I shed crocodile tears if by any chance it gets into my eyes, Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm additionally does not black heads and white heads clog my nose, chin and under my eye area. 
Lasting, I think Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm can last for at least 4 to 5 months if we are talking about once a day evening use. Unless otherwise its gonna be your cleanser twice a day. Will I, should I, or must I daringly recommend Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm to all of you? Honestly, I really can't say. Whether it will be a perfect cleansing fit for all because of our life and style, our habits, our skin type and sometimes, believe me, the least we expect, the worst our skin will react to a cleanser. But genuinely I can stress that Clinique Take The Day Off Balm is a justifiable save bet for those of you who are in the same beauty boat as me. Clinique Take The Day Off Balm is definitely a smooth, effortless, easy and standard beauty cleansing operating procedure for our fifties dehydrated skin. Either lacking in water or oil.     


  1. This product has recd a lot of hype in the beauty world bt let's admit the middle class Indian like me cannot afford it unless I decide to splurge. The product is great and works best for your mature & dry skin I see. I Would have to follow up with a face wash as I have oily skin.. Honest and good review!!

  2. This sounds like a great cleansing balm and I like that even with regular use this will last a couple of months.

  3. I've not tried cleansing balm, but love Clinique products! xoxo
