Cleansing Balms

My Favorite Brush Cleanser Ever

Brush laundry: we all hate doing it but it has to be done. Until they invent mini dishwasher-like devices meant to clean your beauty tools, brush washing is a task that we must tackle by hand. Forget the strange textured glove inventions, I do it all by hand.

Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

Cleansin' Wednesday is a weekly instalment of this blog in which I review a different cleanser (until I run out... and start hoarding cleansers again!) The Clinique "Take The Day Off" Cleansing Balm is my first foray into cleansing balms. I purchased it late last year and have been using it regularly for makeup removal at night. It’s a rather stiff lard-like mass in a plastic purple pot. It reminds me of coconut oil, texture-wise. The writing on the packaging rubbed off pretty quickly within the first month of use so it’s not very aesthetically pleasing but the product itself is an excellent makeup remover. Dare I say I prefer it to Bioderma? I just feel like I get a more thorough cleanse when I use this balm.
