Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm quickly gained a cult following and is used every day by thousands of women in different parts of the world. Sadly Clinique like many other global cosmetic brands puts profits above animal welfare and sells its products in China, where in 2021 animal testing is still required by law. Therefore we believe that Clinique can not be considered cruelty free and strongly encourage our readers to use alternative cruelty free cosmetics. Cruelty Free UK shortlisted 9 cruelty free alternatives to Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm for every budget. These cleaning balms are cruelty free and are made by ethical, cruelty free companies.
