Clinique Take the Day Off balm

Now that we discussed The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous cleansing butter, we also need to explore its higher end friend – Clinique Take the Day Off cleansing balm.

I will admit it took me a long while to purchase this product because I was very happy with The Body Shop cleansing butter. For curiosity, and for the blog, I did venture out. And the verdict is I don’t like it as much.

Mind you, there is nothing wrong with Clinique Take the Day Off. The basics are very similar to The Body Shop’s version – a lightweight makeup remover that goes from balm to oil upon application, dissolves face and eye makeup (emphasizing on those with sunscreen) and then rinses off completely.

Ingredients: Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Caprylic/ Capric Triglyceride, Sorbeth-30 Tetraoleate, Polyethylene, PEG-5 Glyceryl Trisostearate, Water, Tocopherol, Phenoxyethanol.

In a nutshell, Take the Day Off has Safflower Seed oil instead of Olive Fruit oil in The Body Shop cleansing butter, without shea butter and fragrance.

Now I find removing makeup is just as relaxing and fun as putting it on, and scent plays an important role in that process, to me. A scent-free cleansing balm would be perfect for those with sensitive skin, but not for me.

Second reason I prefer The Body Shop cleansing butter: size and price.

Take the Day Off is 3.8oz/ 125ml (almost one and a half times bigger) and costs $36, twice as much as The Body Shop cleansing butter or 4 times if I get it 50% off, plus its thicker plastic jar is not as travel friendly as the thin metal jar with The Body Shop.

To conclude, I will stick with The Body Shop cleansing butter once I finish Take the Day Off, but I hope I give you options for the cleansing balm that suits your skin needs.

About Sparkled Beauty

I love makeup with passion. No, I was not growing up holding eyeshadow in my hand, and I went through many years not having much makup on my face until one day it hit me. It was probably just the right time for me to open up my heart and let it in, and I could never stop.
