might not be suitable for oily/acne-prone skin
Reviewed
Skin Type: oily Skin
Skin Concerns: Acne, Sensitive Skin, Dehydrated Skin

I learned the hard way that Ethylhexyl Palmitate was no friend of mine. While the balm did a great job of removing makeup and sunscreen and left my skin look and feel clean, the Ethylhexyl Palmitate (which its first ingredient) broke my skin terribly.

I had to switch to Banila Co. Clean It Zero (the pink one, before the 2018 reformulation) and that one actually did better job (and kinder to wallet). ymmv

Good but expensive

Skin Concerns: Post Inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), Acne, Rosacea, Anti-Aging (Fine lines & Wrinkles), Large Pores, Sensitive Skin

Yes we all know clinique and their cult following. Before using the take the day off balm I was swtiching between banila co's zero cleansing balm and bobbi brown's cleansing oil. While I do love k-beauty products, I found myself gravitating towards clinique's balm most of the time. It has the least amount of ingredients but does the job well and takes off my sunscreen the best among the rest. The only draw back is the price but you really don't need a lot of product per cleanse.

Was too comedogenic for me
Reviewed
Skin Type: combination Skin
Skin Concerns: Acne, Anti-Aging (Fine lines & Wrinkles), Dehydrated Skin, Whiteheads/Closed Comedones

This did remove makeup fine however was too heavy for me. My skin is dehydrated, sensitive, acne prone, easy to congest. Probably, Ethylhexyl Palmitate as a first ingredient is no friend to us, comedogenic-prone people. Might work well for someone less prone to comedogenicity.
I also tried Banila clean it zero and Heimish balms - only the latter seemed to work for me.
