It’s an obsession that I have recently developed. Using cleansing balms! This product came highly recommended to me by many people. It’s a cleansing balm – works as the most fabulous makeup remover I’ve ever used! This will be your best friend on those nights where the last thing you want to do is remove makeup. If you wear eye makeup on the daily, I seriously cannot rave enough about this product.
The product claims that it is a lightweight makeup remover that quickly dissolves tenacious eye and face makeups, sunscreens and transforms from a solid balm into silky oil upon application. It cleans thoroughly, rinses off completely. Is non-greasy; Non-drying. Suitable for all skin types.
Price- Rs. 2,000 / USD 29 – 125 ML
The Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm comes in a round purple-colored tub with a silver lid. The packaging is quite sturdy albeit a little inconvenient for traveling due to its large size. But you can always transfer some balm into a smaller container for that purpose. Its also a tub packaging which means you’ve to dip in your fingers every time to scoop out the product.
The product itself is an opaque white, thick textured waxy balm that melts as soon as it comes in contact with the skin. Hence is very to spread and because of the oils in it, it leaves the skin immensely moisturized.
The Body Shop Take The Off Cleansing Balm is to be applied directly onto your dry, fully made up skin. Gently massage it into your eyes, lashes, face and basically, anywhere you have applied makeup and lightly massage for about 30-40 seconds, wet it slightly to turn it into a milk like consistency, and watch all your makeup vanish like magic when you rinse off the oil with water or by using a flannel/washcloth. It leaves my face absolutely cleansed and my skin clear and glowing!
As per your preference, you may or may not follow up with your face wash but I always like to wash my face to avoid any sort of irritation.
This product is one which removes even the last traces of my waterproof makeup and doesn’t leave any left overs for the following day. What I also like about this cleansing balm is that there is no scent and how gentle it feels on my skin.
Ever since I have started using it, I have never looked at any other makeup remover. This is the second time I have purchased this product and that means a lot which is why I was enticed enough to review it this time. I love this product! Highly recommended!
