"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.

This water-activated, balm-to-oil version of our top-selling oil cleanser deconstructs layers of excess sebum (oil), waterproof make-up, environmental pollutants and residual product buildup on skin.

Formulated without artificial fragrances or colors.

    Was a lovely surprise to receive the sample in the mail.
    Yet another great product, love how the balm removes my makeup and makes my skin feel lovely and smooth - a winner.

    I am so glad there is now a Dermalogica balm to oil precleanse, I love the oil precleanse but find the packaging can get a little messy after a while and leave oil marks where it sits in my bathroom.
    I have tried the sample of the balm to oil (and purchased the full size) and love it, packaging is great and leaves my skin still fresh and clean like the oil precleanse

  • Wow, so good
    5 out of 5
    I've been a fan of the precleanse oil and this is better again. Being a balm you don't get the mess and waste of a runny oil so you can control how much you need. Was effective at getting off makeup, particularly stubborn mascara. The smaller size is going to be super to travel with, no worries with oil leaking.

    When you think that it can't get any better than the original dermalogica precleanse it does, this works wonders on my skin and doesn't cause irritation. Great product

  • A makeup remove that works
    5 out of 5
    I used a sample of precleanse balm to remove heavy stage makeup after a show performance. The makeup came off easily and removed all my eye makeup including eyelash glue which was great. It was soft on the skin and didn't irritate the sensitive eye area. Nice that it's a balm rather than a liquid so you get the right amount of product you need.

  • Awesomeness!
    5 out of 5
    I was so excited to try the Pre-cleanse sample I received...Wow!
    The Balm is easy to apply with the handy cleansing mitt.
    My skin felt softl yet, thoroughly cleansed without over drying.
    I don't wear make-up, only Sheer Tint Moisturiser but I can gladly say this Pre-cleanse Balm works a treat!
    I'm totally obsessed with this & have noticed the difference in my skin already especially as I have adult acne. I only wish I had taken a before/after picture.
    Dermalogica - your my hero!

  • Pre cleanse wonder
    5 out of 5
    I received a sample of this product along with the mitt. It is a lovely product that allows your cleansing to go just that little bit deeper and with the mitt it leaves your skin feeling tingling and fresh.
    A great product!

    I have been using the original Pre Cleanser for years and was skeptical that I would like the balm but I have been pleasantly surprised. Even more surprised at how far a small amount goes with using the mitt. I am very happy with the new product.

  • Great product
    5 out of 5
    I've been using the original PreCleanse oil for quite a while now and received a couple of free samples of the PreCleanse Balm so haven't tried it with the mitt, but I'll definitely be purchasing this to replace the oil once my current supply runs out. You only need a really small amount and it does a great gob. I do find the oil a bit messy and easy to spill - I think the balm is easier to use and will be better for travel.

  • Might be a new fave
    5 out of 5
    I've used pre-cleanse oil for a few years now, and love it, but it is a bit difficult to travel with, I tend to get it in my eyes trying to get my eye makeup off and it stings a bit. The balm is great - not such a strong scent, doesn't sting my eyes and isn't so messy. I just opened a new bottle of the oil before the balm came out, but once it's gone I might get the balm!

    4 out of 5
    Precleanse balm is brilliant like its original (the oil). I have been using precleanse since it's launched about 10 years ago (?), and am still in love with it. Balm is fantastic, especially for travelling (less worry to make a mess in a bag). But one thing... I much prefer the fragrance of its original (oil). :)

    I received a trial sample of this and tried it out on a night when I had worn full makeup during the day. Used it before my regular cleanser and it was very nice. Would be perfect for people who maybe rely on wipes too much and don't go for deep cleaning, so would recommend!

Hi there, I love Dermalogicia products and will continue to order many of them. I would like to know why you need to cleanse after using this balm. I know the hint is in the name but I'm always concerned about using too many products that overload the skin causing natural oils and moisture to be stripped. I'm 45 years old with normal-dry/combination skin so this is a concern for me.

Written by Julia on 5/09/17
Hi Julia,

We understand your concern as it can be very easy to over cleanse. PreCleanse Balm will remove the majority of the debris on the surface of your skin (make up, sunscreens, pollutants) but there is likely to be still some debris left behind, this can then be removed with your second cleanse. The beauty of PreCleanse Balm is that it is very skin conditioning so perfect for skin like yours which you described as normal to dry. Your second cleanse could be with Essential Cleansing Solution which is a rich creamy cleanser, this will definitely maintain oil and water levels in your skin.

Hope that helps,
The team at Dermalogica
