Take The Day Off with Clinique’s Cleansing Balm | Beauty

Take The Day OffClinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm*

There’s nothing better than getting home after a long day and taking your make-up off. That said, it can also be one of the most annoying tasks. Let me be honest for a second; I can be a bit lazy when it comes to cleansing. Which means I’m often looking for a product that will help me do it easily. For me that means a product that will apply well, take off all my make-up, cleanse my face, and leave my skin looking and feeling great. I don’t ask for much, do I.

Take The Day Off

Enter Clinique’s Take The Day Off Cleaning Balm. A product I was recommended this by my best friend VA. She told me she was a big fan, and that was all I needed to know in order to try it out for myself. So let me introduce the product properly. Take The Day off is a lightweight cleansing balm, perfect for getting rid of stubborn eye and facemake-up, as well as those that include sunscreen. Best paired with a cleansing cloth, it cleans thoroughly and washes off completely. It claims to be perfect for all skin types, and as someone with sensitive skin, I can agree. It’s easy to see why it’s the most requested product on Clinique counters.

Final Thoughts?

  • Lightweight
  • Good texture
  • Clean application
  • Leaves skin smooth
  • Removes make-up easily
  • Non-greasy, and non-drying

At £23 this is on the higher end of what I would consider spending on a cleanser. That said, you do get a lot of product with this cleansing balm. It’s perfect for day-to-day use, whether I’m wearing make-up or not. And as an added bonus it can easily be de-potted for travelling. I would definitely repurchase it.

Get a free 15ml Take The Day Off! From 25-26th May, you can grab your own free travel size cleansing balm (no purchase necessary) from Clinique counters, in John Lewis stores nationwide.

You can purchase Take The Day Off online and in-store.

A Hit of Vitamin C with Clinique Fresh Pressed | Beauty

clinique freshClinique Fresh Pressed 7 Day System with pure vitamin c*

Winter is no longer coming, and beauty fanatics everywhere are going vitamin c crazy. And yes you guessed right, I’m no exception. After all the weather is changing, temperatures are rising (albeit slowly), and your skin needs a little boost. Some of you may be shouting “speak for yourself” as you read this. But hey admit it, we’ve all been there. And if seasonal transition affects you as much as it does me, then you’ll be glad to hear that Clinique has a new product to help out.

Clinique Fresh Pressed

The simple, two-step system contains pure Vitamin C. Which I’ve been told by Clinique is one of the most powerful de-ageing vitamins. The products claims to give you brighter, more radiant skin, right from the first application. “With continued use, see transformative de-ageing results: skin that’s noticeably firmer, more even-toned, smoother, with visibly diminished lines and wrinkles and a radiant, youthful glow.”

Clinique Fresh Pressed comes as a set (featured in this post), which lasts for 7 days, and costs £25. However you can also buy the Renewing Powder Cleanser with Pure Vitamin C (£24 for 1 month supply), or the Daily Booster with Pure Vitamin C 10% (£58 for 4 x 8.5ml) separately.

Final Thoughts?

The system is simple and easy to use, and would fit into anyone’s daily routine. The initial opening of the Daily Booster was oddly satisfying – you’ll see what I mean if you buy it – and I found the product lasting longer than the 7 days stated. It mixed well with my moisturiser, and naturally made it go further. But I did find it a little sticky on my skin, and it meant my moisturiser took a little longer to absorb than normal.

In my opinion the 7 day set is the best way to test out both products alongside each other, for first time users. And at £25 it won’t break the bank. However it’s the Renewing Powder Cleanser with Pure Vitamin C that I would re-purchase. I loved the sachets, and how simple they were to use. Not to mention how travel-friendly they are! In fact I’m considering stocking up on them just to take with me when I go away. All in all, my skin felt and looked good throughout – and after – the week’s use.
