  • Great cleanser!
    5 out of 5
    Leaves skin feeling great and has really helped with pimples and oily problem areas. Great for removing waterproof eye makeup which is usually a problem for me with my sensitive skin!
  • Amazing!

    Such an amazing product, I no longer need to use wipes that pull off my eyelashes and it leaves my skin feeling fresh afterwards.

    I only tried precleanse as I got a free sample. I'm hooked now. It's my go to makeup remover before a full cleanse and I can't do without it. a little goes a long way as well, so it's good value. Love it!

    I only have precleanse because it came in a pack with another favourite, daily microfoliant, but I'm totally hooked: it's as good as everyone says!

  • Removes the war paint!
    5 out of 5
    Precleanse removes all of my daily war paint like nothing else -- I can't remember the last time my skin was so clean & I'm not left with a tight, dry feeling either. This stuff is magical!
  • Must have!
    5 out of 5
    No joking. It works really well in removing makeup without irritating my sensitive skin. Amazing!
    5 out of 5
    I love this stuff! It makes my skin feel so clean and refreshed. It's easy to use, nice smelling and a little goes a long way so definitely cost effective.
  • Wow
    5 out of 5
    After trying different products like Indio, Nude by Nature and Estee Lauder which arent cheap products I was so happy that I took the risk to try this. Its awesome. I look forward to putting it on my face. The smell, the feel and the results are awesome. This product should win an award. It makes my skin feel sooo clean. And its helped to get rid of my millia and congestion.
  • My favourite!
    5 out of 5
    I don't even know where to start! Precleanse is absolutely FABULOUS!! It's so gentle, smells delightful, removes every single trace of make up, including heavy eye liner & mascara and leaves your skin feeling so soft & fresh! And it does this all in a matter of minutes, which is great for a busy Mum like me! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! If you are having second thoughts about whether to try it.....don't! Give it a go, you'll love it!
  • Precleanse is the best!
    5 out of 5
    I started using the Precleanse recently and am totally sold on it! I love this product and I'm sure it is helping my blackheads on my nose, they definitely look a bit lighter than usual. This product is totally worth it and the smell is just lovely too, it really does feel like you are having a facial at home. Thanks Dermalogica for the fantastic products!

  • 'Facial' at home
    5 out of 5
    I adore my pre-cleanse. Not only is it super-effective and paradise on skin, but it really does feel like a facial at home. The aroma is pure 'relaxing facial' at beauty spa. I use warm clothes and try to recreate a facial at home. Follow up with other dermalogica products and it's enough to make you feel pampered & bliss.
  • Best ever
    5 out of 5
    I love this product. So great for removing eye makeup. I perform on stage and find it the best at removing heavy stage makeup. Couldn't live without it.
  • Removes everything except natural beauty!
    5 out of 5
    If you've read any of my other reviews you'll know you're dealing with a serious junkie!

    I had never really used a pre-cleanser type solution before discovering this fantastic product and whilst I said the microfoliant was my favourite product I might be having second thoughts! This product removes everything (not the natural beauty of course) and leaves a fresh clean skin layer for my cleanser to...well cleanse!

    I highly recommend these products to anyone especially friends and family!
  • A fabulous product that gets a fabulous result
    5 out of 5
    A great product that feels wonderful on my skin, doesn't cause any irritation even around (and in!) the eye area and manages to loosen and remove even the most stubborn makeup. Who could ask for more? It is just fabulous, I don't feel my skin is cleansed properly if I don't use it.
  • Pure Luxury!
    5 out of 5
    Having oily skin, and limited to drying products, being able to use this 'oily' feeling product is pure luxury! I love the feel of it on my skin, I love the smell, and I love how effectively it prepares my skin for the next step in my cleansing regime by completely 'melting away' oil, dirt & pollutants from my face. If there is one Dermalogica product I MUST HAVE, and urge everyone else to have - no matter what your skin type - this is it!!!
  • Take off that mask!
    5 out of 5
    Best make up remover ever! I have no idea how it is so gently to use on the eyes but tough enough to remove waterproof mascara so that there's not a single trace of it left (unlike other ones I've used). Love!
    5 out of 5
    Needing only a small amount, Precleanse goes far. I love the feeling and smell as I use it because when it gets washed off my face doesnt feel tight and is totally clean of pollutants and makeup.

  • Love it!
    5 out of 5
    Precleanse is one of my favourite Dermalogica products. Honestly my skin has never felt as clean as after using this product it feels amazing and I don't really know how I lived without it before. It's also awesome at getting rid of all traces of my eye makeup.
