Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover

Hey Everyone!

Recently I've been dipping my toe into the realm of skincare- trying to move away from babywipes, or at least incorporate something else into my routine. I've had a sample of 'Clinque Take The Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes and Lips' lying in my drawer for ages and I thought I'd give it a go since I had quite heavy eye makeup on.

Like all Clinique products, this has really clean, no fuss packaging and the lid is like a medicine bottle where you have to push down and twist. The liquid has two components- one sits on the other, like oil on water which I thought was really unique. I used Superdrug's own cotton wool pads and just applied 5 tips and rubbed onto my eyes. It was really silky and oily and firstly removed the eyeshadow then broke down the mascara and eyeliner. 

Frankly, I am bowled over with this product. It actually removed my long lasting mascara (in my opinion its harder to remove than waterproof) in no time at all- the oil just melted it away. When I went over with a wipe after- there was absolutely no makeup left. This will come in so helpful when I'm wearing waterproof or lots of eye makeup.

The only thing that puts me off purchasing this in full size is the price- its £16 for 125ml, which is way more than I would spend on skin care, so unless I come across a voucher or a winning lottery ticket- I'll just need to make this sample last.

Overall, this is the best eye makeup remover I've ever tried as it removes all traces of even the most persistent mascara but its price makes me reluctant to repurchase.

Have you tried this?
PS- Sorry the photo quality/ lighting isn't as good as usual- I took these pictures at night.

  2. If the price puts you off try the johnson's one, it looks pretty similar and it's only £3 something I think x
