This is not good. I was looking for something to remove water resistant foundation and eye makeup. I swatched a couple of CLINIQUE eye pencils on my hand, and then went over them with this Cleansing milk to see if it would remove them. Nope. It took forever for the eyeliner to even start to budge a little. I ended up in the Estee Lauder counter and got their Take it Away makeup remover lotion. That one WORKS, but stinks a bit. If it didn't stink and felt completely safe around my eyes I would give that 5 out of 5 because it MELTS waterproof/water resistant makeup. BUT it stinks a bit, and I have to be careful to not get it in my eyes (even though is not so bad I have to avoid using it around my eyes), so its not perfect. Still If you want a makeup remover lotion that WORKS and you already have an eye makeup remover, I would totally reccomend the Estee Lauder lotion. I take it off with a cotton round and all my makeup comes off, great pre cleanse.

I really wanted to love this cleansing milk. I've used it for a while while shopping at Ulta to remove makeup test swatches on my wrists and thought it worked great. I finally bought it for home use for my face and found out it really burns my eyes and had to return it. Two lippies for doing what it claims.

Drying! Doesn't rinse off easily. Not worth the price and doesn't remove makeup effectively.

I had to return this because it burned my eyes terribly. It sounded like a soothing option for removing mascara, but I definitely don't recommend it for removing eye makeup. I didn't expect that from a Clinique product. I'm just not a fan of this line, because I exchanged this for the formula specifically for removing eye makeup and it caused some of my lashes to fall out, so this line just isn't for me and I can't recommend it.

Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Milk is a bit mislabeled. I have tried Clinique's Take the Day Off Cleansing Oil and Cleansing Balm, and I found them to be super at effortlessly removing all makeup, even the most tenacious. However, the cleansing milk struggles to remove any makeup at all, and I end up having to rub with a tissue or washcloth to remove makeup with this product. I feel this defeats the purpose of having a gentle cleanser, since the rubbing can be irritating to skin. I have not tried it around my eyes because I use a separate makeup remover for that area.

The good points--this product is packaged nicely, and is very convenient to use because it doesn't run like an oil. It is fragrance free, with a glue-like scent which I find to be inoffensive. The product in itself is not the least bit irritating to my sensitive facial skin, and is slightly emollient, so would be good for drier skin.

The bad points--other than the fact it doesn't remove makeup, I have to use a rather large amount to get full coverage on my face and neck, so it is not a great value for money.

Overall, I think Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Milk would make an excellent emollient 2nd-step cleanser for those with dry skin (hence the 4-lippies). However, it doesn't really "take the day off" for long-wearing makeup or water-resistant sunscreen.

This doesn't even remove the lightest makeup. Terrible product. If you want something that will take your makeup off get the Take the Day Off Cleansing balm.

The worst cleanser I have ever used. Please don't waste your money on this product - horrible scent, feels like acid in your eyes and doesn't remove any makeup whatsoever. The pain of this product in my eyes was worse than shampoo. Wish I never bought it.

A disappointment.
This product makes my eyes water even when I rinse it off as thoroughly as I can and avoid using it near my eyes. It also makes my skin feel 'hot'. I do not feel it removes makeup very well. With most cleansers I will use it around my eye area but not with this one. Highly annoying as apparently it is 'allergy tested and 100% fragrance free'.
The best thing about this product is the handy pump bottle and the easy to spread milky lotion. Too bad it makes me cry and doesn't clean that well. I will try and use it up in the shower on my legs- far away from my eyes.

I've got a combo/sensitive skin and it's very hard to find a skin product which does not irritate my skin, especially cleansers and toners. Most of them have got an alcohol included which burns my skin straight after application or they are alcohol free but do not "wash" the excess oil from my face at all.

I bought this milk just to a give a try really, did not expect too much from it...but it works great!! I really like it and use it every night.

Pros - great for combo/sentitive skin, lovely silky finish after washing off. Using it in a pair with Mild Lotion and it gives to my skin an amazing fresh dewy radiance tone!! Comes with a pump.

Cons - always get a slight redness on my cheeks after washing out, but it's only a visible effect, can not really feel any irritation and it dissapears in a minute or two, so not big deal but want to mention it in case a girl with very sensitive skin been reading this..not sure how that would work for you.
Another problem is once you apply this milk it takes ages to wash it out as it gets more and more and more foamy LOL don't know why, doesn't matter how much milk you apply, it always foams a lot....due to this I apply it before I go to shower and wash it out once I am there, it's the easiest way, can not recommend to girls who are rushing out in the morning - you're gonna be late!
Do not use near your eyes, once it gets in it burns like hell.

So in overall I give to this product 4 lippies. One down cos of the foaming, stings eyes and due to this I do not think it's worth the full price. But to be honest it's the only cleanser which works for my sensitive skin very well so unless I find another, the perfect cleanser, I am going to purchase this again.
