Clinique has launched a brand new formula of their bestselling, super popular cleansing balm, and it’s the Clinique Take The Day Off Charcoal Cleansing Balm.
The original Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm is one of the most gentle cleansing balms I’ve ever tried, but this newest formula has detoxifying benefits.
Clinique Take The Day Off Charcoal Cleansing Balm
“This lightweight makeup remover dissolves eye and face makeup and sunscreens. It detoxifies and unclogs pores, helping clear dirt, oil, pollution, and other impurities. The formula transforms from a solid balm into a silky oil upon application. It cleans thoroughly, rinses off completely—without leaving an oily residue.“
The Clinique Take The Day Off Charcoal Cleansing Balm is $38, and contains 4.2 oz / 125 mL of product within the full size. There’s also a miniature size available, and that is $14, and the mini contains 1 oz / 30 mL of product.
With the original version of the Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm, the cleanser is housed within a pale lilac plastic jar, with a silver chrome lid. The balm is a white translucent color, and on contact with the skin, the balm melts into a clear oil.
This new Charcoal version of the balm has a dark purple jar, with the same silver chrome lid. Except, the charcoal cleansing balm is a black color, to represent the charcoal within the formula.
- Japanese Charcoal: This purifying ingredient helps thoroughly cleanse and detoxify pores.
- Safflower Seed Oil: Works to help break up natural oil found on skin, plus dissolves makeup.
The Clinique Take The Day Off Charcoal Cleansing Balm is designed to dissolve long-wearing makeup, whilst detoxifying the pores. It’s suitable for all skin types, and contains Japanese charcoal, which is what detoxifies, and removes excess oil from the skin.
Clinique describes the cleansing balm as being lightweight, and quickly dissolves eye makeup, face makeup, and sunscreens. Whilst unclogging pores, helping clear away dirt, oil, pollution and impurities.
