"nice to mitt you"

Both PreCleanse Balm sizes come with a handy Cleansing Mitt for mild exfoliation. Massage the product into dry skin using circular motions for an extra deep cleaning before you cleanse.

double cleanse = double clean

Did you know that oil attracts oil? By using an oil-based product prior to cleansing, you remove impurities such as make-up and debris so that your cleanser can penetrate into the skin for a deeper clean. We call it the Dermalogica Double Cleanse
Here's how it works:

step

0

Use PreCleanse Balm or PreCleanse to remove product buildup and other pollutants from the skin. Start with dry skin, then add water to emulsify, and rinse.

step

1

Wash your face with your cleanser to remove remaining traces of PreCleanse Balm or PreCleanse, and achieve a professional level of clean, radiant skin.

It's a good product

By 

from Canada

Comments about precleanse balm:

I bought this product as I was almost out of my pre-cleanse and it is new and had to try it. Now their is nothing wrong with this product at all, it actually works pretty well. I still use it, however, I find that the pre-cleanse is my go to choice.

Nice for winter

Comments about precleanse balm:

Like that I can use oil to breakdown the makeup on my skin before using the daily microfoliant.The oil does irritate my eye when it gets into my eyelashes (even when I am careful to not place any near my eyes) but love the feeling of my skin after use. Wish the mitt was better suited to getting next to the hairline and around the eyes. Makeup stays on mitt so do wonder how much it is really sleaning.

Love it, but still need to use eye makeup remover

By 

from Tulsa, OK

Comments about precleanse balm:

I love the preclransr balm, but notice that eye makeup is still left behind no matter what I try. I always have to go back in with eye makeup remover or a makeup removing wipe to really get it all off. But it's definitely a great 1st cleanser to get off most of your makeup.

I like pre-cleanse oil better

By 

from PA

Comments about precleanse balm:

This is okay. I wouldn't purchase again. I'm also quite surprised it has hydrogenated vegetable oil as it's fourth ingredient. My eyes are irritated afterwards but not with pre-cleanse oil. I'll be switching back to pre-cleanse oil. I miss the oil, and even the subtle scent.

Comments about precleanse balm:

The mitt feels absolutely amazing on my face. Just enough pressure and I loved the feeling the precleanse gave. A little goes a long way and I appreciate that!
This is my first time trying it!

AMAZING

By 

from Tulsa, OK

Comments about precleanse balm:

I absolutely love this product. I work at a salon & spa that carries Dermalogica (lucky me!). All the estheticians were super stoked about getting this new balm to oil pre cleanse Derm product in, and now I understand what the hype was all about. I began using it & fell in love.

Not to mention it smells freaking amazing and leaves your face feeling super fresh & clean. I believe that it holds up next to the original pre cleanse, if not, better because I feel like it is easier to apply & that I do not need to use as much. It also feels soooo good on my skin when I wash my face with it. It has a minty scent to it.
