Questions & Answers for Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

Question
What am I doing wrong?
I rub this between my fingers and rub product onto my face, and when I follow the instructions, which say that the product and makeup will just rinse off with warm water, the makeup and product do not. What am I doing wrong? Is there a technique that people are using that is working for them? Even after I rubbed the product into my eye makeup (and I don't wear a lot), and all over my face (again I don't wear a lot of makeup), and rinsed with warm water and blotted my face dry, my eye makeup just slid down my face and my face was oily. I mean, oil, after all is not going to rinse away with warm water. I then washed my face, and when I wiped cotton pads across my dry face, there were lots of traces of makeup on the cotton pads. Should I use cotton pads to wipe the balm (and I'm hopeful that that would include my makeup) directly off of my face and then rinse and then wash my face? Advice as to technique, or brands of better removers?

Come on ladies!! any make-up remover must be followed up with a facial cleanser!! This is "lady-stuff" common sense 101 !!! This is NOT rocket science. You have no reason to rub any cleanser between your fingers. A cleansing balm is just slapped on your face generously, and rubbed around and around with your fingers, for about one full minute; including eyes, lips and everything else (assuming you have eye make-up and lipstick to remove. OMG, I feel dumber already just knowing that I should clarify that! It's like the instructions that come with an electrical device: Do not use this radio plugged in underwater. ! .) . Sometimes you may need a second go at it on eyes only. You should never use a washcloth on facial skin. You shouldn't use any fabric rougher than a small FLANNEL baby washcloth on face. If you feel you need something more, save up all your change for several months and invest in a sonic cleansing brush. So, after that with the balm, rinse face well and wash with a facial cleanser. done and done.

I've been using a warm washcloth. Massage gently onto dry skin and your makeup really does melt right off. Then when I've gotten my whole face, and everything is smeared everywhere and I look like a zombie (blackest black waterproof mascara!) I use a well wrung warm wash cloth to wipe it all clean. A splash of water on my face and pat dry. My face feels refreshed and happy!

I have the same problems with oily make up removers not rinsing off. This is what I do.
1. I use a dime size amount of this make up remover - more if I'm wearing stubborn foundation.
2. I gently message my face with this remover until my whole face is caked in it.
3. whilst keeping my eyes shut I apply a generous amount of my foaming facial cleanser onto my palm and message it into my face, so that the cleanser mixes in with my make up remover.
4. Then rinse off with tepid water.
5. I then use my toner to remove any trace amounts of make up.

Hope this helps

Are you massaging the product into your skin? Try doing soft rubs in circular motion, don't just slap it on and rinse off. You need to let the cream work its wonders. Massage it into your skin, around the eyes (in your case over your eyes for removal of eye makeup), about 20 secs. Then rinse off with warm water. That should do the trick! BUT be sure to follow it with a cleanser to finish it off! Hope this helps!

Strange that it won't rinse away, because I have no problem with warm water completely emulsifying it and rinsing away cleanly. Even cool water works for me. Does the product seem to be fresh, or could it have been ruined in shipment? Maybe if you took it into Sephora or Clinique, they could tell if it was damaged in some way. The only suggestion I can think of is that maybe you should wipe off most of it with a tissue or cotton pad, and then rinse with warm water. Sorry I don't have any better ideas! It has worked great for me.

I have very oily skin and I found that this is excellent at removing everything. All I have to do is use toner afterward. There is not even anything on the cotton pad after using toner. I just use the toner for the acne medication in it. If you use a microfiber cloth, you will remove all traces of makeup or oil left after using the balm (which wont be much!). No additional cleanser needed.

It just depends on how your face feels. I usually follow up with Shiseido White Lucent cleansing foam (my cleanser of choice). Depending on if you have acne prone skin, scars that need lightening, etc., you might want to follow up for the extra punch. If you don't have any of those needs, this might do it for you for the evening cleansing routine.

I have combination-oily skin (depending on the season), and I love it for all seasons. When you first put it on, it feels quite slick, but that's just silicone, not oil. Rub it in all over to remove makeup, and rinse with water. When you rinse, you'll definitely notice that the slippery feeling disappears. The thing is, you have to rub it in your skin without wetting your face first, or else the product breaks down before it has a chance to work.

Question
which to buy?
Can someone tell me the difference (besides the visually obvious) between this cream and the bottle of makeup remover called Take The Day Off Makeup Remover For Lids, Lashes & Lips? I'm sure that this jar of cream can remove makeup from lids, lashes and lips as well as the bottle can. If I had to choose between them right now, without having any solid information about them, I'd choose this one 'cause it's creamy. That doesn't seem like the best way to make the decision. So anyway, which one?

I prefer the balm over the liquid in the bottle. The big difference for me is the fact that the balm stays on your face and eyes long enough to really do the job, where the liquid evaporates and soaks into the cotton you're using. Plus, it rinses off clean afterwards. It's awesome :)

I would pick the balm because it works just as well for eye makeup! The other bottled one is strictly for eyes and lips. I find the balm does both jobs well ;) Differentiating it is only a marketing strategy to sell more different products catered to different areas of the face. Though some makeup removers don't actually work with all, but this balm does. So just buy the balm~

I got the "take the day off" eye makeup remover as a GWP. I wear Bobbi Brown cream eye shadow-that stuff does NOT come off with water unless you scrub it off. "take the day off" eye makeup remover, with one gentle swipe with a cotton pad, took off ALL the eye shadow and eyeliner. Because it's so watery, I wouldn't use it on my face. The "take the day off cleansing balm" is a thick buttery goo, that gently rubbed on the face takes off ALL makeup. Because it's buttery, I don't put it on my eye lids, I prefer the liquid stuff and cotton pad. My skin is dry, partly age, partly climate, and the cleansing balm takes so little rubbing or effort to remove all traces of makeup. If I had to choose between the 2, I'd get the cleansing balm because it works so great for cleaning my face-I've used Ponds cold cream in the past. But if your skin isn't dry and you already have a product that you use for washing your face you're happy with, just get the liquid eye makeup remover. The "take the day off" eye makeup remover is an eye makeup remover, the balm is more of a face cleaner but also removes eye makeup.

My opinion is that this balm is definitely creamier than the liquid product, which I also like. But for winter or for drier skins, I think this is preferable because, while it does rinse clean, it leaves your skin soft and smooth. The only caveat is that for using it as an eye makeup remover, you have to be careful not to get it in your eyes, as it will leave your vision blurry until it washes away eventually. The liquid doesn't seem to have that problem because it's not so oily.

The balm is easier to apply, since you don't need a cotton ball or pad to apply. A little goes a very long way and it is definitely what it advertises. Very silky. But I haven't tried to bottle, so I can only vouch for the balm!

The Cleansing Balm, which comes in the jar, is far better. It's not the same product as the lids, lashes and lips makeup remover, which isn't made to remove face makeup and sunscreen.

The important thing about this specific make-up remover is that it's developed for ALL of your make-up, not just eyes and lips but for your entire face meaning your foundation. That said I would recommend this product above products that only target your eyes and lips.

I have both products. To me the liquid is just an eye make-up remover that you would use with a cotton pad, and could use to remove long wear lip stick also. You still have to wash your face, actually I feel like I need to wash the product off as well, and I find it a bit irritating to my sensitive skin. The balm is the only cleanser I use at night, you rub it onto your dry skin (including eye area) and it melts into a sort of oily consistency. I then wipe everything off with a warm wash cloth and then rinse. I have super sensitive and break out prone skin and I have had no problems at all. BTW, I use the redness reducing cleanser in the a.m. and this combo is working well for me!

That's really the biggest difference. One is a liquid that you put on a cotton ball and swipe across eyes, one is a balm that you put on your fingers. Both work in the same fashion, it's more about which is most convenient for your beauty routine.

The product does state that it can be used to remove sunscreen as well as makeup. It is gentle enough and rinses so cleanly that I would use it myself as a facial cleanser , if I wanted. Honestly, the jar is so large and you only require such a small amount to clean your eyes. It leads me to think that they intended people to use it on their face and not just their eyes -otherwise it would last years. My review for this product states it rinses off 99% completely and 100% when followed up with your normal facial cleanser. For this reason, I would occasionally followup with your normal cleanser to avoid clogged pores. Just like hair products -sometimes you need a clarifying shampoo to remove buildup.

Yes, I definitely think this could be used as a stand-alone cleanser, especially if you don't have oily skin. When I rinse with warm water, it comes off, taking the makeup or dirt with it, and it leaves the skin silky smooth and soft. If you had oily skin or a tendency to blemishes, I would think you would need to use a toner or wash with soap after using this product. But I don't find that necessary at all. I really like the product, and I've never seen anything else like it, although I have used (and liked) other just regular oil cleansers. Try it, I think you'll find it works great.

When this product arrived it was a thick hardened consitencey. Is this how the product is supposed to come or did the heat/cold combo affect it?

Yes, this is how the product is made. It is a solid balm but in a good way. Run your finger across it and it will melt with the heat from your body.

This product is meant to have a thick hard consistency!! You scrape a small amount off the top with the spatula and rub it between your hands and it turns into a silky oil that you apply to your face than rinse off. It rinses off completely!! You will not feel greasy after rinsing but you do need to follow with your regular cleanser. This product was not meant to be used as a cleanser!! It is to be used as a makup remover so you can go on to the rest of your cleansing process. I love it and I believe you will to!!

It is supposed to be hard, kinda like a solid mass but as you rub your fingers in it, it will emulsify. Definitely different if you're use to an liquid oil. I rub it and get a little at a time and put it on my eyes, then rub it some more and put it on my face.

It is supposed to be hard in the jar, and the warmth from your fingertips melts it into a liquid type consistency. Then you rub it on your face and it thins out more on your face.

Yes that is how it is supposed to be. Just put a little on your fingertips and let it do it's magic, and you also don't have to use a lot :)

The balm arrives in a hard, almost waxy consistency, and then when you rub it onto your fingers it becomes silky, like a real balm.

The product is a balm, so it is meant to be a solid. You should find, however, that it starts to soften when the heat of your fingertips rubs against the product (i.e. when you are removing an amount from the jar). The product liquifies when rubbed gently around the eyes. Gently...that's all you need.

In its natural state, the balm is solid-- it could be somewhat hard the colder the weather is. However, once it warms in your fingers or on your skin, it dissolves slowly, eventually into a more fluid balm.

its opaque and hard, looks a bit like candle wax, so use your finger to scrape off a small amount and apply to your face - as soon as you gently press it against your face the product starts 'melting' into a creamy consistency very quickly and begins to work - it feels so soft and its very effective.

Its quite thick and dense, but softens with body heat. I think this is actually a plus, as a little bit goes a long way.

I've had mine for a couple of weeks and it barely looks used. You don't need much bur even if you over-used it I think it would last at least six months.

Question
Clog pore?
I have very large pore, oily skin, and sensitive. Since this product is in balm texture, will it clog my pore? And it is safe for people with very sensitive skin to use? And it is effective in cleansing sunscreen, I don't wear make up, but only sunscreen. Please advise. Thanks.

I think this product is perfect for every skin type. There aren't any fragrances or dyes in it. This product would be ideal for someone with sensitive skin and definitely would NOT clog your pores. Another plus...leaves your skin super soft.

I have oily/acne prone skin and I also use sunscreen, mineral powder foundation and lots of eye makeup!! Take the Day Off Cleasing Balm removes it all!! This product was not meant to be used as a cleanser, it is a makeup remover, to be followed by your regular cleanser. I not only have oily/acne prone skin but sensitive skin as well. My skin loves this and when I am done using this product and my cleanser my face is clean and soft!! I have had no problem with clogged pores!!

It will remove your waterproof makeup and sunscreen.... you just have to use enough for a very thin layer on your entire face and rub it in for a few seconds. I have acne-prone skin and this product has never caused a flare, but I do use a gentle face wash after using this. It does not sting the eyes (and I have gotten it into my eyes many times.... my eyes are somewhat sensitive from laser eye surgery).

I have oily and large pores as well and this will not clog them. It goes on smooth and rinse completely clean. I always wash afterwards with my face wash for a double cleanse.

I have oily skin that breaks out occasionally, and this product rinses clean away. No residue, and it cleans off the makeup so it actually prevents breakouts for me. Good for all skin types.

All Clinique products are designed for people with sensitive skin in mind. They do not use typical harsh chemicals or fragrances as with other brands. In fact, their line is fragrance free. My face is not highly sensitive, however. The description for the product does state that it will dissolve makeup AND sunscreen. It does rinse cleanly off your skin and there is no need to really work the product for it to be effective. You could always get a sample and test it on your arm to see if it removes your sunscreen to your liking. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
