This really is a great make up remover. It is the only Clinique product I use but have recommended it to everyone in my family (now all converts) and will definitely continue to buy it. The balm is so gentle, I easily rub it into my eyelids and eyelashes to dissolve the mascara and other makeup. My cousin who is 24 years old said until she started using this product she had never woken up without 'panda eyes'. I cant recommend this gentle yet effective balm enough. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!

Best cleanser for my eye makeup and in one go. Gets off the eyeliner, eyebrow pencil liner, mascara, eyes shadow and eye primer, and I mean this balm gets to everything and all without the usual tugging and pulling and cotton balls. Gentle gentle gentle and it feels good on. Highly recommend.

LET ME TELL YOU I AM OBSESSED WITH THIS. I've always loved cliniques eye makeup remover, I always go back to it. my skin is so dry though i was looking for a cleanser/balm that would also help makeup. This realllly does the trick.
I feel wicked bad for all the UK gals bc Clinique is SO expensive over there. This is about $25 for a big tubby that lasts awhile, you dont need much, its very emollient.
ladies with oily skin would probably want to use their cleanser after using this because it is very moisturizing but ladies with normal- very dry skin would like want to just bathe in it.

I cannot believe I just spent £19...yes, £19 on an eye makeup remover. I must be mental. But that's testament to how good this stuff is. I had it in a freebie a while back and couldn't figure out what to do with it. After reading about it on MUA I went back...and lordy, I was a convert.
Small amount on the tips of my (clean) fingers, rub my hands together and the solid dissolves into an oil, rub my hands gently over my face to remove foundation, concealer , lippy and blusher, and then the same gently over my eyes to get rid of eye makeup. Splash my face with water and my skin is clean and clear. No panda eyes!
And it works. It honestly works. I have a terrible time with eye makeup removers, they either work and sting my eyes (Olay) or don't remove waterproof mascara (Avene, Lancome, Neutrogena). Clinique TTDO does the whole thing. If I've trowelled on loads of makeup for a night out, then it might take a little more produect, but it still works.
I then use my Origins cleaning routine, and I am safe in the knowledge that my cleanser is working on relatively clean skin and not having to shift a ton of makeup before it does its duty.
I've not had any skin problems since using this, in fact its made my skin more moisturised. I also use far less cotton wool pads. If this can last for 4 months then I'll consider it a worthwhile investment...but to be honest, I'll probably repurchase anyway. I just find it so easy to use.

My skin tends to suffer from dissociative identity disorder whereby one day it gets along quite well with a select product and then the next there is mayhem!! We're talking all out chaos including breakouts, rash, hives, peeling, etc...yeah, not cool. Therefore, when I find a product that I can use every day (well, every day that I use makeup that is) and my skin remains unaffected, it is very exciting. So kudos to Clinique for this cleansing balm! It is very gentle on the skin (heck, I've actually stabbed myself in the eye with my finger before while trying to remove eyemakeup and my eye didn't burn or itch or get red at all...although I don't recommend trying this on your own...I am an untrained professional). ;) Anyways, gentle on sensitive skin, it takes off everything and although it's relatively expensive at $34CAN a pop it goes a long long way. Since I always wash my hands before using the balm I don't even mind the fact that it's in a tub and you have dip into it to get the product. Overall, pretty much amazing! This is the only makeup remover I'll ever buy again.

Some people are crazy about this product but it's just not for me.
I hate the fact that you have to poke your fingers into the jar to scoop the product out everytime because once you get going with massaging the balm onto your face and realise that you might need a bit more, you won't want to put your now dirty fingers into the jar to get more. it really sucks to have to wash your hand again before putting your hand back into the jar because you wouldn't want to contaminate the product.
It's definitely not a cleanser for me, it's more of a pre-cleanser to help dislodge make up. It does that quite well but i find a separate face wash is still required after.
I give it 3 because it's not harsh at all and sensitive skin types could really like this. I give it another point because it's not blinding like dermologica's precleanse (that one burns my eyes) but does pretty okay at breaking down thick mascara. I give it another point because The tub lasts a very long time so it doesnt work out to be so expensive.

I had several break outs immediately after using it. Dries skin. Cannot reccommend it.

This is very, very good. Takes make up off perfectly and the tub lasts for ages. I'm on my third tub now, and have been trying random cleansers samples in the meantime, but nothing is as good as this Clinique product. The only problem with the 'chunky' dimension of the tub is that I never take it with me when I travel, and it would be nice to have a 'travel size' version of this, but that's hardly putting me off from using this product again and again!

I've been looking for a makeup remover that would take off both my face, eye, and lip makeup for a long time, and I finally found it! I've used Clinique's makeup remover, olive oil, baby wipes, Ponds, ect, ect. I tried using Caudalie Cleansing Water, and it worked alright, but it wasn't able to get all my mascara off. I had discovered this balm from randomly reading reviews online. I didn't like the idea of using this as a cleanser, since many of the reviews said that this tended to dry out their skin, or not clean it enough at all. So I decided to buy the product and get a sample so that I could figure out my own way to use it. (I always buy something if I ask for a sample and try to get a sample so that if I need to return the product, it isn't used). After a few trial and errors, I found a way to use this product that has me hooked. I rub the balm all over my face and eyes (making sure that I really get all my mascara off), wipe off the oil with a sponge, wash my Fresh Soy Face Cleanser, apply my MD Skincare Alpha Beta Pads (every 2 nights), then finish with my Kinerase Face Cream or Egyptian Magic. All my makeup is removed and my skin is not irritated in the least, which is a huge deal for my extremely sensitive skin. This is a great product and I will definitely be getting more.
Note: Remember girls, this is a makeup remover, not a cleanser. You should always follow up with a cleanser that suits your skin type after using. You should always cleanse twice at night (once to remove makeup and once to cleanse the skin) and this is only meant for the first cleanse. And as far as the sanitation of the product, always wash your hands with antibacterial hand soap for at least 30 seconds prior to any kind of skincare routine where you will touch your face, or inside a jar.

This stuff is amazing for removing every trace of face and eye makeup. I got this when it was first released and I was skeptical back then, thinking it would be heavy and greasy and leave an oily residue behind but it doesn't - it dissolves everything and the comes off completely with a warm face cloth, leaving my skin feeling very clean and very soft. I will never be without this.
