I love this product!

I was sampled this product and knew I needed to own it. It melts away eye makeup and everything else you piled on in the morning! After I use this, I follow it up with either the resurfacing cleanser or special cleansing gel. Great product- I'm hooked.

Awesome cleanser!

Love this precleanse! It's like two cleansers in one. Whenyou apply and use without water it breaks up oil and makeup then you add a bit of water and it feels like a different product.

New staple in my skincare routine! Highly recommend

I recently purchased the small size of this after seeing a youtube video that included this product. My only regrets are not buying the bigger size and not purchasing this sooner. If you massage this into your face for about 3-5 minutes, you can literally feel the dirt and grime clearing out of your pores. After about 2-3 uses my skin visibly looked more smooth and almost kind of "blurred". I have been struggling with acne recently and even my acne looks like it has calmed down and is less irritated. I use this nightly and after I get back from the gym to make sure the sweat doesn't clog my pores then I follow it up by washing my face with a cleanser and then going about my normal skincare routine. Has definitely improved the quality and appearance of my skin and is now a staple in my skincare routine. Will most definitely be purchasing again in the bigger size.

My skin LOVES this

5

I use this product daily, even though I had only planned to use it when I wore make up, I find that it very effectively removes excess oils and dirt and really helps my cleanser (I use the special cleansing gel) work better. The best part is that I don't feel like I have dry or over washed skin after. I have roseacea and with that I have incredibly dry and peeling skin while also having breakout-like issues, this precleanse is gentle enough not to aggravate either symptom.

Made my eyes really sore

Love the concept of the pre-cleanse but using this very carefully to cleanse eye makeup left my eyes stinging night after night. I have emailed Dermalogica who just replied with a load of corporate guff. Won't be buying again and don't recommend this to contact lens wearers at all. Very disappointing.

I would never buy this product again

I heard good things about this product from a friend, so I bought two bottles of this, which I regret since it was so pricey! I tried it for about two weeks and my face got inflamed and broke out so terribly! The oil made my pores bigger. Now I have two bottles and not sure what to do with it.

One of my absolute favorite products! As someone who wears makeup daily, I can feel it melt away with this precleanse. My nighttime routine wouldn't be complete without it. And it smells glorious!

Hello, I recently bought the precleanse. I suffer from a lot of acne and sweat profusely when I go to the gym. Should I use this to take my makeup off before going to the gym so my pores are clean prior to my workout or just after the gym prior to showering/ my regular facial cleanser. Thank you !

Anna

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use Ultra Calming Cleanser before and after your workout to avoid stripping/over cleansing your skin. Kind Regards, Bernadette

I've had issues with milia and sebaceous hyperplasia and want to make sure precleanse is ok to use in these instances?

Beth

Should I use a precleanse, if so which one? I have sensitive skin, prone to fine red bump reactions on cheeks when aggravated, hormonal breakouts usually chin or one or two anywhere on face. I have visible pores on nose and cheeks. I get oily in the tzone area dry to normal anywhere else. Dry maybe of oily reducing cleanser. I'm 43, dark brown skin. I was considering the calming line. But there are no calming product in either pre cleanse oil or balm or micro/superfoliant. What products should I consider as my day and night routine?

Is this product eye safe? I use this product and I love it but I feel that it can get in my eyes when I take off my eye makeup. And then my eyes are a bit oily....anyway It doesn't bother me that much but is it eye safe? ps; are you ever going to bring back the treatment foundation? it was good < 3

bamnramn

Additionally, I do apologize. Treatment Foundation has been cancelled. You may like Skin Perfect Primer SPF 30.

Bernadette

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes, Precleanse is safe for the eyes but you should follow with another cleanser like Special Cleansing Gel or Ultra Calming Cleanser. Kind Regards, Bernadette
