The (Good) Stinky Stuff

One of the first things I do when trying out a new beauty product is smelling it. I can't help it. The Boyfriend calls me a truffle pig because I'm always smelling stuff in stores. Is that weird? Am I alone here? Are there any other truffle pigs out there?

*cricket noise*

Alas, today's post is about two skincare products in my current regimen that smell absolutely disgusting but they work so well that I am able to get over that fact.

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.
