Review: Dermalogica PreCleanse

I’ve spoken before (read it here) of double-cleansing with an oil-based cleanser, and I’m back again with another winner of a product, Dermalogica PreCleanse. Not just winning Charlie Sheen style, but an actual winner, one of its awards being the prestigious Prix de Marie Claire Award for Best Splurge Skin Care Product. Take that, Charlie.

RRP $65.50

Daily application of sunscreen (you know you should..), primers, coupled with modern long-lasting makeup techonolgy means that your regular cleanse-and-go routine may not actually be cleaning your skin at all, rather just removing some make up. Your blackheads love it, and then invite more friends to the Pore Party. Using an oil-based pre cleanser, like Dermalogica PreCleanse, can help to initially cleanse your makeup and skin oils away, leaving your prescribed cleanser to get to the business of cleansing your skin, not just the stuff sitting on top of it.

Formulated with a bevvy of wonder-ingredients (safflower oil, kukui nut oil, rice bran oil and vitamin E)  PreCleanse is an olive and apricot kernel based oil cleanser that is applied to dry skin to begin the cleansing process. Warm water is then added, which creates a light, milky emulsion. Simply wash off, and already your face is lookin’ good! I have been using PreCleanse daily, needing to use only the smallest amount, and I find it a fantastic way to begin the makeup removal process before cleansing (my current cleanser is Kosmea Clarifying Cleanser), which I do in the shower. I find that some make up removers leave an oily residue on my skin, and to be honest, I don’t often have the time to use cotton buds (a whole bins worth!) and remover lotion, then have a shower and wash my face.

Simple, fast and effective, I am definitely on board the double cleansing train with PreCleanse!

What do you think of double cleansing?
Anyone else a fan, and find their skin feels cleaner?

    Double cleanse is a must to actually CLEAN your skin! And definitely an advocate for Dermalogica pre cleanse. xT

    This stuff is great! Makes the skin feel so smooth after, however I accidentally let some water get into the precleanse bottle. Is it still usable?

      Hello! Yes, I think it will be fine with a small amount of water in it. Oil and water don’t mix, so the water should just sit on top of the oil and come out when you pour it!
