Rated 4.65 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review never thought i'd like "oil based"
I typically wouldn't buy an "oil based cleanser"... but a kind lady at Ulta recommended I use this before using the ultra calming cleanser (that will be another review- 5!)
I have combo skin- sometimes dry patches, shiny nose, acne scars, and hormonal acne along the jawline. These reasons alone make me cringe at the thought of oil cleanser.
I honestly bought this knowing that I could (and probably would) return it. The "thought" made me think it wouldn't work out for my skin. BOY WAS I WRONG!
The first time I used it, it was a little odd to rub oil into your skin (dry hands and dry skin)... but the massage felt great, and the scent is pleasant. I rubbed it all over my eyes, and it never stung. When I added water it became milky and I could literally see makeup dripping off my face (I made a huge mess of my bathroom counter!). I rinsed it off with warm water. My face immediately felt soft, and SO clean! I know that it cleaned my makeup off amazingly, because after using this, I used the ultra calming cleanser with my clarisonic and my bristles of the clarisonic were CLEAN without a trace of makeup on them)
I have not had any reactions to this, and I truly feel that my face is cleaner after using my face wash.
The bottle is pretty large, and will last a LONG time. I only use about a dime to penny size of product in my palm and it takes off: primer, foundation, powder, blush, mascara, eye liner, and eyeshadows.
Give it a try!
Most Helpful Critical Review Waste Of Money, The Original Formula Is Twice As Effective.
I am a licensed Esthetician and MUA. I purchased the trial size to test this product against the original in hopes of a more travel friendly formula. In my test I applied to my clean arm, primer, black cream paint, set it with a black powder, and finished with a makeup setting spray. I washed each spot with the separate cleanser and scrubbing mitt with no second cleanse. As you can clearly see the original formula is twice as effective as the new balm. Don't waste the money, stick with what's good. I only wish they sold the silicone mitt separately.

I've been using this precleanse daily it removes my make so well. I alittle goes along way. The pre cleanse actually makes my skin look really nice. Def going to order more whenever I run out. It glides on to my skin so we'll not breaking me out. "gifted by Dermalogica"
Nope, nope, nope
Charlie Ann from Bossier City
I was looking for another remover, that is cruelty free, since the one I use is currently out of stock & I needed some more. This was recommended by an Ulta worker. She swore by it. NOPE! This doesn't even take off all my eye makeup plus it leaves a film over my eyes for a long time. Glad I only got the trial size. Threw it away. Back to the drawing board.
I love this product, will repurchase
Andrea from Michigan
I love this product to remove my make up!!
Tk from Los Angeles
This is an essential part of my two step cleansing routine. I can ensure that all the makeup is washed and removed from my face without being stripped of the natural oils and without making my face feel dry at all. Complimentary from Dermalogica
Han from Texas
The product is clean and silky. It removed waterproof mascara easily which was super helpful, it's not usually that easy. I really enjoyed using this product it was incredibly efficient. This product was gifted by Dermalogica to review and I'm so glad it was.
The best makeup remover, period.
Alexandra from NJ
I am truly obsessed with this product, which was gifted by Dermalogica. A little goes a long way and this removes every trace of makeup - including waterproof mascara. I'm a double cleanse gal so I always use this as a first step followed by my regular cleanser and my skin always feels incredibly clean but also moisturized. This is my third bottle and I'll never be without it!
Amazing new addition to my routine!
LC from Atlanta
Love this product so much! I wear quite a bit of mascara/eye makeup and have loved adding this pre-cleanse step to my daily routine. Removes everything and love the consistency! Gifted by Dermalogica.
Elaina from San Francisco
Love it! It's a great product and as someone obsessed with skincare who tries things all the time, I've really enjoyed this! I'm interested In trying more of their products now! Overall really enjoyed
This is a great product!
Lindseym216 from Jacksonville, FL
This is a great product! It really helps to clean my skin and remove any makeup or impurities without stripping my skin. It doesn't make it feel dry and I have sensitive skin and this doesn't bother me. I received this product complimentary from Dermalogica.
Would definitely repurchase
Erica from New York
I received this cleanser complimentary from Dermalogica and love it so far. It's very lightweight, which I love with my products, but does a great job at making my skin feel clean and glowy. I like using this as a first cleanse at night and also as my morning cleanser. Does a great job at removing makeup and other residue from the day.
Strong herbal scent
Jessica from Miami
This cleanser was gifted by dermalogica.
I have used this cleanser for a few weeks, the consistency is lightweight it removes my makeup easily, I need to clarify that I don't use heavy makeup or waterproof mascara.
The only thing that I didn't enjoy was the fragrance, this cleanser has a strong herbal scent.
Kierstan from Santa Monica
I absolutely love my Dermalogica precleanse! I'm a big skincare fanatic and my skin felt so smooth after one use. Always double cleanse to get the most out of your skincare! Will be rebuying and using in the future. Gifted by Dermalogica.
Wished I Would Have Found This Sooner!
V from New York, NY
Wish I would have found this sooner! I now look forward to removing my makeup after a 10 hour work day, it has a calm scented fragrance which is exactly what I need after a long day. It helps remove long lasting waterproof makeup in just seconds. Leaving my skin feeling clean, hydrated and smooth!

I loved using this product!
KWanner from Pittsburgh, PA
I loved using this product to get my makeup off before washing my face! The smell is such a refreshing lemon scent and smelled so good! The product comes out as an oil. It removed almost all of my makeup (foundation, mascara, bronzer, and blush) and I could almost feel it working while I scrubbed my face. I definitely recommend this product as a "precleanse" to get off your makeup prior to washing your face! It's a great alternative to using a makeup wipe. This product was complimentary from Dermalogica.
I absolutely love this precleanse!
Nicole from Inverness, IL
This precleanse complimentary from Dermalogica made my skin feel clean and free of any kind of stubborn makeup. It was able to remove thick layers of mascara, which I was pleasantly surprised about. My skin looks clear and fresh, not red or irritated. I enjoy the smell, it is pleasant and does not effect my sensitive skin at all.
Good for daily use
Tami from Florida
This product was received complimentary from Dermalogica. I use it on dry face with dry hands and massaging it, then the same moves with wet hands. This oil helps to gently remove make-up, sunscreen and impurities. Vitamin a, c, e and omega 3 fatty acids are main ingredients. Good product for daily use
trizzy from Orange County CA
This is such a treat, seriously it feels so luxe on your skin. You can absolutely bring the spa to your home when you use this cleanser. It has such a nice scent to it too, it's citrusy. Not overwhelming! I do recommend to use another cleanser with it so your skin doesn't feel oily afterwards. This was gifted by dermalogica, but does not persuade my opinion of the cleanser.
The precleanse really irritated my eyes
Pam from Raleigh, NC
I really love the microfoliant, and was about to run out of it and thought to give this set a try because I was just about to run out of my other cleansing balm. The precleanse hardly removed makeup, and ended up irritating my eyes. I also use a minimal amount of product on the daily basis, only concealer and normal mascara and brow gel. I have only used it twice, but am choosing not to use it any longer because the inner corner of both of my eyes is red and sensitive to the touch. I do not recommend the precleanse. Gave this two stars because the microfoliant is great and the bottle has the same amount of product as the mini, which alone is $16 so its not a bad deal. The amount of microfoliant in the bottle should last me until around April, because you only need to use a small amount every couple of days to achieve smooth skin.
BEST MAKEUP REMOVER
EmiUzca from New York
The Dermalogica Pre-Cleanse, gifted by Dermalogica, is my absolute go-to because I know it will remove my makeup so effectively. It has a light scent which doesn't irritate my skin and it feels supple without that oily feeling from other makeup removers.
Best cleansing oil for acne and fungal acne
myskincaremakeuplife from NYC
I received the cleansing oil complimentary from Dermalogica to review. I have been using the brand for 7 years off and on. There are very few brands that have stuck with me for so long and it did for a reason. First, their product quality stays the same over years, we know how big of a problem that is once a brand picks up. And dermalogica never disappoints, never, I use the micro exfoliant and cleansing gel from same range so was pretty excited to get this to complete my double cleansing routine for fall/winters. It makes my skin free ot makeup and suncreen, not an ounce and leave it very hydrated and soft. On days when I dont use this, I can tell the difference next morning in my glow. Unbelievable right, but if you are in market for a cleansing oil, give this a chance. I have only been using this for past 2 years and my skin has never looked better. And it is a huge bottle for the price and lasts very long. Win-Win-Win!!
Makes my skin feel and look so clean!
Lexi from Nashville, TN
This product is everything! It's always been so hard for me to get off stubborn makeup before cleansing my face. This makes it so easy. It easily removed my mascara as well as other other makeup, which made washing my face after a long day a breeze. Not only that, but my face noticeable looked smoother and cleaner after and when I woke up the next day. The smell of this product was good too! Overall I loved this product, and will probably never not use it again. This product was gifted by Dermalogica!
I am OBSESSED
Lisi from Manassas, VA
I got this complimentary from Dermalogica and I've been obsessed with this cleansing oil for years. I am an esthetician and a dermalogica expert and this is just straight up one of the best oil cleansers on the market. This removes even the most stubborn makeup and works great as a first cleanse.
A good first cleanse
Olivia from San Antonio Texas
This product feels amazing on the skin! I'm always on the hunt for good gentle cleansing products. This products removes most of my most stubborn makeup, (I do not wear waterproof anything) my skin feels clean after. Product has a pretty clean earthy smell to it? I would recommend to a friend. Gifted by Dermalogica
Love this precleanse.
Ad from ATX
This product is a favorite of mine! I love the way is melts off makeup / oil after a long day. I've been very into environmental protection so I love to use this after a day of being out and about to protect my face.
Smells SO Great! Perfect Starter to any face care routine!
AB from Strongsville, Ohio
Let me start of by stating this product smells so good and has the cutest packaging!
I was gifted by Dermalogica.
Now lets get to the good part! My skin feels so smooth after applying this product. It looks and feels fresh.
This product has become a staple in my evening routine! Often at the begging as a PreCleanse to get the initial grime and makeup off my face!
