The Life Saver

Yesterday I thought to myself, “OK, so now I’ve started this, what will be my first recommendation?” And, after much deliberation, I decided that my staple item (since I was 14 years old mind you) should be my first post. Thus, I introduce you to Clinique Take the Day Off.

Clinique. I know. You’re saying to yourself, “I used that in high school.” Well hunnie, I did too and this is the only product I still use. We all know their lotion isn’t so great for your skin, but I live by Take the Day Off.

This eye-makeup remover has saved my life many mornings by quickly removing any and every item you put on your eyes (and I’ve used some pretty tough eyeliners). I even taught a learned makeup artist about this product and she is now in love!

Take the Day Off is slightly oily, BUT does not leave you feeling oily. Furthermore, it wipes off easily. The product will run you about $17.50 at Nordstrom. Personally, I go to the outlet makeup stores where it will cost you about $13.

  1. Hi Brit…
    Well I may be able to make a suggestion for another eye makeup remover that I swear by…They are the Almay non-oily formula pads. ( you’ll know they are non- oily bc they come in the white jar w/ purple print). They are super easy to use and VERY inexpensive….about $5.99 for a jar of 50 or so pads. At times they can be difficult to find b/c of their popularity so I am hesitantly making the suggestion….
    Give them a try the next time you’re in CVS, Target, Walgreens, etc….I think you may just like them.

    • Hey Lori! I have used the Almay pads before. And they definitely do work, but I remember having to do a bit more work myself (rubbing, pulling etc), so I went back to Take the Day Off (I’ve used some liners that just didn’t to come off). They are most certainly a cheaper option and a great alternative!! Thanks for the suggestion 🙂

  2. Hey B,

    You mentioned that the Clinique moisturizer can be damaging to skin. What does it do? I’ve used it in the past and would consider returning but if you have more info on it I’d love to know.

    • Hey Tia,

      Imagine a line drawn on a piece of paper. On one side it says heavy, the other says light. Clinique moisturizer is definitely on the heavier/greasier side of the product line. Its qualities don’t let your skin breathe. I really think this lotion was created to be used in step with the 3-step program Clinique promotes. Furthermore, even though there are antioxidants in the lotion, I have read articles claiming that packaging (the kind Clinique uses) can counteract antioxidants and actually render them useless. For $29, I think you could find a better product that has more benefits for your skin (antioxidants, SPF, light-weight, non-greasy). Just my two-cents, but if you love it, don’t let me stop you!
