Ask a Question

The professional's deep cleansing weapon! Achieve ultra clean and healthy skin with a double cleansing regimen that begins with PreCleanse. This plant-based cleansing oil, fortified with Olive and Kukui oils, thoroughly melts layers of excess sebum (oil), sunscreen, waterproof make-up, environmental pollutants and residual skin products that build-up during the day. When water is added it transforms this hydrophilic (water-loving) formula into a milky emulsion, easily rinsing away oil-based debris from the skin's surface and allowing your recommended Dermalogica Cleanser to penetrate even further for professional cleansing results. Formulated with conditioning Rice Bran and Vitamin E oils, this gentle blend can be used around the eye area to even remove waterproof mascara. Offers a deep cleansing ideal for even the most oily skin conditions. Contains no artificial fragrance or color. Professional recommendation advised.

How it works:

  • Use as the first step of your Dermalogica Double Cleanse, and follow with your recommended Dermalogica Cleanser.
  • A blend of rich oils melts through oil and oil-based debris that collects on skin throughout the day.
  • Vitamin E Oil, a rich antioxidant, helps improve skin smoothness and softness.
  • Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride is an emulsifying agent that is activated by the addition of water to release the bonded oils from the skin's surface.


We recommend that first-time Dermalogica users visit an authorized skin treatment professional for a client consultation in an ULTA store.

Using dry hands, massage over dry face and eyes to dissolve surface oil and dirt. Concentrate on areas of congestion or stubborn debris. Wet hands and continue massaging to create a light, milky emulsion. Rinse with lukewarm water. Follow with recommended Dermalogica Cleanser for professional cleasing results.

    Comments about Dermalogica PreCleanse:

    This is the best makeup remover I've ever used. It is oily but this isn't a con as far as I'm concerned. It's meant to peel the make up right off your face (which it does well!) and then you are supposed to rinse it off and then use a cleanser to wash your face. No oil is left by the end of the routine. I rub it directly onto my face and massage it in, Cheeks and eyes. Then I wet my hands and massage it more with the little bit of water. You can see the foundation come right off as well as any eye makeup. I've never seen more makeup come off my face! I thought it was a big difference when I got a clarisonic but this is even more of a difference in makeup removal. And as a bonus it smells amazing! Can't rave about t enough. Worth the money.

      I've been using this product since it came out and have tried another brand but always come back to this one.
      It cost more than I would like to pay but I think it is worth it.

        As a current esthetician student, I am LOVING Precleanse! They use this brand at my school, and I absolutely love it to cleanse with FIRST! I have never used an oil before, and this works beautifully to remove all traces of makeup. It makes my skin feel so clean and refreshed. I have sensitive/combo skin and this hasn't irritated it at all.

                I look forward to using this product every evening! I only use it when I wear make-up, I feel like it does an amazing job of breaking down all of the beauty products on my skin before using my cleanser. I truly think I get a deeper clean by using the Pre-Cleanse.

                    PreCleanse is an oil based cleanser that breaks down make up, sun screen and sebum in the follicles. This product will offer a far superior removal of surface dirt than a normal cleanser and will remove completely when it is emulsified with water. You will follow with your second cleanse with your normal cleanser, tone and moisturize. Please contact us with any further questions.
