That high price tag may deter you at first, but the promise of clear, healthy skin makes it totally worth the splurge. Don’t believe us?

We’ve rounded up some of their faves below to save you some time, but saving the money will be entirely up to you. Scroll down and get your wishlist ready!

3. Mika Dela Cruz: Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

According to Mika, double cleansing is a non-negotiable for heavy makeup wearers. She likes using Clinique’s balm as her first cleanse because it melts away waterproof mascara without leaving your skin sticky.
