After taking an hour or longer to apply makeup it seems to take longer to take it off. I would cleanse my face with makeup remover and then wash that off with a bar of soap, only to see my towels covered in foundation, eyeshadow, mascara, and whatever else I slap on my face. This has all changed since I have been introduced to Clinique’s Take The Day Off. I use a quarter size amount of the balm and smear it all over my face. After a minute, I wash this off with a bar of soap. My face is clean, smooth and not at all dried out. The biggest surprise was my towel was clean afterwards. Did I mention my towel was white? Yup, it was white and it stayed white. Need I need to say more?
