for a deeper clean than cleanser alone

This refreshing, water-activated, balm-to-oil formula melts away impurities from the skin and is the first step to the Dermalogica Double Cleanse, our exclusive professional technique for achieving ultra-clean skin.

Here's how it works:

"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.

LOVE this product. Thank you for saving my skin

By 

from San Diego

Comments about precleanse balm:

Absolutely love this product. I wear a LOT of makeup, and often, so it can be tough on my skin. It's also super hard to remove heavy duty, waterproof makeup without pulling on your skin and tugging out your eyelashes, but with this it's a breeze.

Great product for make up removal

By 

from CA

Comments about precleanse balm:

It doesn't dry your skin, and removes your make up in a matter of a minute. Your skin feels soft after using a special daily cleanser right after the precleanse balm. The glove gently massages your skin, which turns the process into a mini spa procedure.

Tha bomb balm!

By 

from Spring creek

Comments about precleanse balm:

I restarted using dermalogica 2 weeks ago and why I ever stopped I don't know. I bought this today at ulta and used it tonight all I can say is WOW. The balm consistency, the smell and the silicone mitt is amazing. I use all dermalogica products. They maybe pricey but they are certainly worth it. I don't like to pay for expensive packaging or products with extreme fragrances. And I think you get the best results with products that have essential oils and good ingredients instead of a name. Way to go dermalogica. I also steam my face and do a facial twice a week. I have dry skin and I think exfoliating and cleansing are the ways to great looking skin.

Love it!

By 

from St Paul, MN

Comments about precleanse balm:

I love this Cleansing Balm! The fact that it's in a solid form and turns to liquid makes it super easy to use. It's lightweight and makes my skin feel so good! Also, I really like the cleansing mitt that is included. It allows me to very lightly exfoliate and gets my skin ready for the next step. When I'm finished, I simply rinse it out and then hang it over the Cleansing Balm. Couldn't be easier!

Staple to any makeup lovers skincare routine

By 

from San Diego

Comments about precleanse balm:

I tried this product and it was instantly a staple to my skincare routine! I wear a lot of makeup and it usually takes 2 pumps of my normal cleanser to remove it all. With the precleanse balm, I am able to remove all of my makeup (including liquid lipstick) with only a small amount of product. The first time I used slightly too much product and it was a little messy - less is definitely more with this product. I like that a mitt is included, to really massage and gently exfoliate the skin while removing all makeup and dirt. After using the precleanse balm and mitt, my skin felt very smooth and extremely clean!

GREAT NEW PRODUCT!

By 

from Columbus, IN

Comments about precleanse balm:

I have been a user of the original Precleanse for a few months and love it. I was excited to try to new Precleanse Balm. It has met/exceeded my expectations!

I have been using this for roughly a week and my face feels wonderful. The balm and mitt are a great combination for removing makeup.

Two suggestions: 1) When using the Precleanse Balm, be sure to knead the tube before squeezing out the balm; it is VERY thick (as a balm should be) which makes it a bit difficult to get out of the tube. 2) A little goes a long, long way.

The aroma of the balm is not as strong as the original which I miss because I really like the citrus smell of the original.

Love this Product

By 

from Gainesville Fla

Comments about precleanse balm:

I love the precleanse balm, I not only use it on my face, but I also use it on my neck and chest. It makes all of those parts of my body feel so clean and soft. It also smells so good. My complexion is looking a lot better also in just a weeks time. I definatley will recommend this product.
My only cons on any of these products is the cost of it, I struggle being able to purchase it as often as I would like.
