Take the Day (and Night) Off


As someone who uses make up daily, make up cleanser is one of the must have item for me. The most important thing that I’m looking for in my cleanser is that it would be able to cleanse my make up thoroughly, especially the waterproof make up.

Clinique take the day off line has been my favorite for so many years now. I remember when they first launch the line, they only have Take The Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes & Lips. It works fantastically that it even removes the most stubborn mascara, i.e. Majolica Majorca Mascara. The formula is so soft and gentle that it’s safe even for the sensitive skin. True to it’s claim of being totally tugless, it does not sting my eyes at all. It’s light and doesn’t feel too oily on the lids. The bonus point is that it’s safe for the contact lens wearers. Shake well before using and put a little bit of product on a cotton pad. I usually use one cotton pad for one eye area. To remove mascara completely, I usually pressed the cotton pad to my eye area and hold it for several seconds then wipe with downward strokes. Rinse the area with cool water afterward.

What I particularly love about the milk cleanser is that it able to cleanse thoroughly even the heaviest foundation such as Krayolan cake foundation and Mac full coverage foundation. Message a chesnut size worth of product over dry face with fingertips, avoiding eye area until your makeup dissolves. Rinse off with cool water or wipe off with tissue. It is suitable for all skin type but more ideal for drier skins as it feels milky on the face.

For practicality reason, I much prefer Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm for daily use though. It can be used to cleanse make up for the whole face including the eyes area. Massage the balm all across your face and eyes area, the balm will turn to oil as soon as it came into contact with the warmth of your skin. Like the other product in this line, the balm able to cleanse my make up thoroughly. Though, I would prefer the cleansing milk for heavier make up. Whereas the balm is enough for daily make up wear. Do not forget to rinses off completely afterward. This product is non-greasy, non-drying and suitable for all skin types as well.
