"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.

Dramatic makeup is no longer an issue.

By 

from Cincinnati Ohio

Comments about precleanse balm:

I love this! I stopped using for a week to see if I would notice a difference, I definitely did. The texture is amazing and leaves my skin feeling hydrated and fresh. When I took a break I noticed my skin looked a little dull and dry. This product works wonders for taking my makeup all the way off and leaving my skin feeling and looking beautiful. I'm so happy I get to add this to my skin care routine.
I was able to try this product for free threw influencer.

Two Weeks In & I'm Hooked!

By 

from New Hudson, MI

Comments about precleanse balm:

I had never even heard of a precleanse balm when I received this. I was apprehensive too. I like a simple routine and now I'm adding another step in the washing process?? Gotta say though, I'm a big fan now. The mitt that it comes with is everything. I prefer an exfoliating face wash, which I know isn't always good for the skin, so this mitt combined with the balm to oil formula feels amazing on my face while staying gentle. The balm really does immediately dissolve, or emulsify upon use. It's so gentle and soothing.

I received this product free to review; all opinions are genuine and my own.

Would definitely recommend

By 

from New York

Comments about precleanse balm:

Loved using this product as part of a two step system! The PreCleanse Balm did a really great job at foaming up and removing all the makeup and dirt on my skin. Used with the Cleansing Mitt, I was provided with a gentle exfoliation that helped to clear out my pores. My skin was left feeling smoothed and refreshed afterwards. I received this product free to test out and I'm so glad I got the opportunity to try it.

Really enjoyed this product!

By

Comments about precleanse balm:

I was surprised how much I loved this product! Initially, I worried it would be too oily for my skin, but it actually left my skin feeling so soft. The scrubber is gentle yet effective at removing make up and dirt. I definitely will buy this product in the future. I received this product complimentary for my honest review.

Loved This Product

By 

from Dousman, WI

Comments about precleanse balm:

I absolutely loved this product! I really enjoyed how it just melted the makeup off of my face. I cake on makeup just about everyday and my least favorite thing to do is take it off. But the precleansing balm has made it a breeze. At first when I tried it I was definitely concerned it would make my skin break out but not at all. You just look like an oil slick but it's so great if you've got sensitive skin. I was sent this product for free to test and it is something I would purchase in the future.

AMAZING product

By 

from Charleston, WV

Comments about precleanse balm:

This was my first experience using a pre cleanse balm so I didn't know what to expect or what it would do for me. The product came in a squeezable tube and cleansing mitten with two different textures on each side. This balm starts as an emulsifier (like a thick lotion) but after spreading it on face thins out to become more of an oil. It took my entire face of makeup off effortlessly! It's advertised as step zero (to be used before regular cleanser) but I think this can work as the only cleanser because it did an amazing job at getting my makeup off and left my skin feeling clean and refreshed. I really loved it!

The product I've been looking for!

By 

from Raleigh, NC

Comments about precleanse balm:

I use a popular beauty regimen, but have to use a makeup remover before using those products and had not previously found a product that I loved. The beauty balm is PERFECT. I have normal to dry skin and find the balm to be incredibly soothing and moisturizing while effortlessly taking my makeup off. The glove that it comes with is also very gentle. I have sensitive skin and have not been bothered when using it twice daily. Definitely make sure to follow up with a cleanser, as it can leave your skin dewy (or greasy) -- at night I don't mind and find I wake up with glowing skin, but during the daytime, I wouldn't want to layer makeup over it. I received this product free for testing purposes but will definitely be purchasing!

Definitely can see a difference with my dry skin

By 

from Scranton, Pa

Comments about precleanse balm:

So I sampled this product through influenster. I was excited to get my first voxbox and give this stuff a try! My favorite part about this whole thing is the little textured mit they give you. It feel soft and makes it easy to get into smaller areas that you really want to clean. I recommend if you have dry or flaky skin to use the little mit they give you with the balm to gently scrub the product into these areas. Within two uses I noticed a difference and could see that my dry skin was gone. This product leaves skin soft and really tightens it nicely, which is always nice for someone like me that has large pores on their nose.

    When I bought this product, I was looking for an exfoliant... Can the precleanse balm be used as such?

      A:

      Hello Caroline,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Precleanse Balm is the first step in the Dermalogica Double Cleanse. You can use this to remove debris from the day- oils, pollution, makeup, etc. Follow with your preferred cleanser. Once you have double cleansed, you can use an exfoliant like Daily Micrfoliant to remove dead skin cells, polish and brighten the skin.

      Kind Regards,
      Bernadette

    Is the precleanse oil or balm better suited for combination skin?

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Hi there,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Precleanse Balm is for dry/sensitive to normal skin. Precleanse is for all skin types. It would really be a matter of personal preference in your case. Precleanse classic formula is more light weight so people with oily skin tend to prefer the texture. Precleanse Balm is richer and more luxurious. Precleanse Balm also comes with a mitt for deeper clean. You can't go wrong with either choice. You can also try both in travel size before deciding on the full size.

      Kind Regards,
      Bernadette

      Hello,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Precleanse Balm is fantastic for sensitive skin. It is particularly soothing. It locks in hydration and reinforces the skin barrier, which helps sensitive skin. Additionally, it does not contain artificial fragrances or colors. Finally, it is very nourishing.

      Hi there,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Precleanse Balm can be used with any of the other segment lines. It is especially nourishing. Therefore, it is especially ideal for dry, sensitive skin types. Precleanse Balm would be step zero, followed bu your Ultra Calming Cleanser.
