For those of you who celebrate Christmas, Merry Christmas! Those of us who don’t celebrate it are in the mid-week rut =P and its so cold I don’t even have the energy to take off my makeup at the end of the day and often opt to sleep in it 😛 Thankfully, Clinique is catering to the lazies’ market with their Take the Day Off Cleansing Milk.
It is not very cheap for something you apply and remove within 2 seconds at 27 dollars (I am a veteran makeup remover, which is why it takes so little time now 😛 heheheh). But the reason I purport you get this is that its’ worth the value in terms of ease of use, time effectiveness and pimple prevention.
Days when I am really really tired, I apply it on my face and rinse it off with lukewarm water. Days when I am just tired, after application, I wipe it away with a cotton facial pads soaked in rose water. This barely takes a minute! especially if you own rose water in a spray bottle.
The consistency is creamy and thick compared to other cleansers I have used; thankfully, it only serves to hydrate the skin without the usual side effects (clogged pores) so it is excellent for winter and will not cause pimples.
I have sensitive, combination skin and this has never given me any problems – which is a very big deal! This, along with the Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm are the only makeup removing cleansers that have consistently suited me. Other brands may work without trouble for a couple of weeks but suddenly start irritating my skin.
I do use this for eye make-up removal too (on lazy days). However, it doesn’t work as well as it should there. And it always gets into my eyes and burnnsssss like anything for at least 30 minutes after point of first contact. I have a separate make-up removal ammo for my eyes which I will review next week 🙂
Oh, I have not seen this locally yet, but if I do I shall let you know. However, it is freely available at duty frees so ask a traveling relative/friend to pick it up for you or order it online!
I hope you found this review useful beauties 🙂 until next time, make-up (and make-off!) well!
Lots of love,
