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:

      I really like this product. I use it nightly before cleansing to remove all of the buildup from the day. It emulsifies and cleanses well and I really like the way it smells. I've used other cleansing oils and I find that this one is less drying, but it does leave a bit of a greasy residue behind, so I wouldn't use this without cleansing a second time. However, I had the same problem as some of the other reviewers. The pump that comes with the bottle wastes too much product. It leaks out of the cap, which is both messy and annoying considering the price. As much as I like the product, I wouldn't buy it again for this reason.

        Comments about Dermalogica PreCleanse:

        I love dermalogica and I had gotten this as a sample and had to get the full size. It melts away makeup and the new pump top makes it so easy to use and keeps it from being messy. Make sure to apply the oil with dry hands onto dry skin. Then after working it into your skin add a little bit of warm water to your hands to get that milky texture. I follow it with the daily microfoliant. I have combo skin with some unevenness and very small bumps on my chin area that aren't noticeable to anyone but me but they really bother me. This has been the only thing that has dramtically reduced them and given my skin a better all around appearance. If you are scared to try the oil cleansing method, dont be! I was skeptical having oily combo skin and getting regular breakouts and this has seriously helped my skin in so many ways not to mention it completely melts away all my make up which I wear a good amount on a daily basis! I will never be without this stuff!

            Just cleaning your face is not enough. Pre-cleansing your face is essential to great skin. This pre-cleanse is oily but as my skin therapist tells me, oil attracts oil. So this is a must have for any time of skin. I have super sensitive skin and this causes me no irritation what so ever. Well worth the money.

                    A:

                    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.
