Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Oil
I really can’t compare this to the Shu Uemura cleansing oils as I haven’t tried them yet. I’m not even sure if I’m going to try them as they are very expensive. This, however, is more affordable at only Php1,200-1500 per 200 ml bottle.
I said that I’m fairly satisfied with this product because it’s great for removing face and eye makeup but not waterproof mascara. It will probably remove regular mascara without a problem but I don’t use them. I always use waterproof mascara.
I bought this in spite of having several makeup removers (please refer to previous posts) for days when I’m not feeling well (suddenly have an attack) or when I’m too tired to remove my makeup and just want to take a bath straight when I get home then go to bed. I pump about 3x worth of product on my palm and apply as I would a facial wash. I make sure to gently but thoroughly rub the parts where there are the most makeup i.e. eyes. I then use my Clinique Facial Wash. Afterwards, my face feels clean and fresh.
The smell is like all Clinique products that I’m using. It doesn’t feel like oil but more of a liquid facial wash so I have to be very careful when applying on my face as the liquid spills.
I know it’s quite pricey for a makeup remover but I only use this about 4-6x a month and it allows me to rest as soon as possible so the price is justified. Time and rest are very valuable to me and this product gives them when needed. I bought this in December and I still have more than 75% left.
I recommend this for all you busy girls out there. I know there are times when you’re really, really tired but that’s not an excuse to go to bed with an icky face. This product will get rid of the day’s dirt in no time and will allow you to get your R&R fast.
