Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Oil review

It has been a while since I shared a review as life has been busy. But here we are back at it. Today I will share my review of the Clinique TTDO cleansing oil. I’m a huge fan of the balm version, I think is one of my holy grail’s makeup remover, so I was very keen to try the oil version.

For reference, I’m 44 years old, with dry skin and a lot of sunspots, so what I look in a makeup remover is to destroy makeup without making my skin extra day.

This make up remover oil ticks almost all the boxes, but I will share the facts in detail.

My Review

This makeup remover is as good as the whole TTDO family. Simple, effective, and non-drying. What impressed the most that is an oily makeup remover that is not greasy. It is like a dry oil.

And the best part it removes the most stubborn of makeup, leaving your skin soft and hydrated. This is key for my skin as my skin is very dry and can be sensible to certain ingredients. But this makeup remover is excellent. It lasted a very long time, so you get a good value for money.

I love both versions the balm and the oil ones both are excellente makeup remover is matter of which texture you like the most.

How I used: I every day as a first cleanse in the evening.

Why I liked the most: How effective is removing makeup without drying the skin.

How long did it last: 4.5 months.

Pecas’s score: 4/5 Excellent

Will but it again: Definitely.

Packaging: It is a plastic bottle with a pump, recyclable. It does not come in a box, less waste, great job here Clinique.

I could not find a recycle program or anything like that, which I think is missed opportunity.

Sustainability score: 2/5

Where you can buy it: you can buy directly from Clinique page or big niche beauty retailers in your home country.
