Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

by Clinique

This cleansing balm is very effective at removing make up without leaving skin feeling dry and tight.

What we love about this product

The balm is quite solid and easier to remove with a spatula. As the product is rubbed into skin, it turns into an oil which gently dissolves away makeup and other impurities.

It can be safely used around the eyes to remove eye make up.

Skin can become dry and sensitive with the menopause, so it is important to use gentle products to cleanse the skin and remove make up.
