Why do I want it?
I have tried Clinique's Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm and I loved it. And by "tried it" I mean the lady at the Clinique counter used it on me after helping me determine a foundation color match. Although I ended up not purchasing a foundation, the effectiveness and the nourishing effect of the cleansing balm stuck with me and I almost went back to buy it but I felt like I couldn't justify the price.
This is a slightly cheaper alternative and it comes with a little spatula for dispensing the product. It also has some desirable ingredients that are not found in Clinique's Balm such as Aloe and Argan Oil.
