CLINIQUE Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

Of course, I am proponent of the double-cleanse PM routine. I can't say how you will like this if you aren't, but I don't think it would make your skin upset. And I don't find it removes eye makeup completely if you don't use a cloth (or if you don't use a cloth you would have to rub way too hard on the delicate eye area in my opinion). I use super soft microfiber cloths that you can get on Amazon or in bulk (see Tarababyz YouTube for the site) to remove the balm with warm water and it gets every bit of makeup off. I use less than a pea-size amount for a full face of makeup. It's so environmentally friendly - no wipes or cotton pads. The tub is way more travel friendly than taking a cleansing oil that might leak in your suitcase.
I do use a bi-phase remover and a cotton pad if I use waterproof mascara or eyelash glue, but that's rare for me.
There's no scent or irritating ingredients. It's not greasy or oily and doesn't leave a residue on the skin. It emulsifies easily and rinses off cleanly. It doesn't break me out. It comes in a travel size. Pretty much the perfect makeup remover.
The only thing I will say is you have to make sure that you remove it completely. I have never had any breakouts from it, but I can only guess if you don't remove it completely that you will get breakouts. Some people say to double cleanse, but I don't. I just rinse off my face with water and make sure that it is all the way removed. Since, I started to use this product, my skin has looked much better. I will be repurchasing this when I run out.
