"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.

Caring for your PreCleanse Balm Mitt
We developed our Cleansing Mitt to be as flexible as possible to ensure you get the best possible double cleanse each time you use it. To achieve this level of flexibility we had to use a special silicone, that makes the mitt a bit more delicate. With this in mind, please be very gentle with the mitt as it can tear relatively easy, especially if hanging it up to dry on the PreCleanse Balm (it can easily catch on the sharp edges of the tube).

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 5/09/2017
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
