Most Helpful Positive Review My Hands Dowm Favorite Skin Care Product EVER
I am a makeup artist and enthusiast and probably 6 days out of 7 have a full face of glam makeup. This product has changed everything for me! Before I would use makeup remover wipes, micellar water and face soap. And I would STILL have traces of makeup on my face or lash glue. This balm removes all of it in just minutes. You only need a small amount on the mitt (the mitt feels amazing with its soft but texturized sides while applying to the face- with the added bonus of exfoliately lightly!) the Balm itself just feels like a light oil on the face. You do not need to scrub hard or tug at your face or especially your eyes when trying to remove the makeup and days dirt. It is so gentle. I have super dry skin and it leaves my skin also feeling really smooth and moisturized (after I also use the Special Cleanser afterwards). I did receive this product and the cleanser for free testing purposes. And even though It is a little on the pricier side for me, they have a customer for life in me. It is worth every cent for how well it cleans my skin of everything and in such a smooth, easy way. I cannot sing the praises of this product enough as I am incredibly impressed by it and how effective it is! I LOVE how my skin feels after using it!
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 adore this cleansing balm. unfortunately I cannot afford it and have to seek other poor excuses for cleansing balms in its place. If you can afford the price, I recommend it 1000%. it takes of makeup, or oils from a nights sleep that settle into face, gently. it leaves face feeling smooth and moisturized for the next cleansing step in your routine.
skin care necessity!!!!!!!!
julesgs from Slippery Rock
I know most use this to take off makeup, and even though I don't wear makeup usually this is still a necessity in my daily skin care routine. I use it every night and no longer have combination skin after one use. it got rid of extra oils in my oily areas and didn't continue to dry out my nose and t-zone, but rather hydrated. I knew I was always missing something in my routine and I didn't know what it was until I tried this. Will continue to buy this forever
Buy a different oil cleanser instead
JJ from Phoenix
This product is effective at removing the makeup/ SPF at the end of the day but the texture isn't great, it comes out of the tube in a weird messy way and it's not amazing. I used the whole tube because there was nothing wrong with it but it just wasn't impressive. Once it started getting low, I ordered a different oil cleanser/ precleanse from Shae Organics Skincare called Erase the Day and OH MY GOSH it is AMAZING. It showed me what an oil cleanser should really feel like. It is also very effective at removing the makeup/SPF/dirt at the end of the day while gliding on super smooth and nourishing for the skin. I would recommend the Shae Organics product over this one.
I would buy this again

Cleans all my makeup off so nice!!
I would buy again

The only reason it did not get 5 stars is because I felt that I had to use a lot of it and I went through it pretty fast. But I do like prefer to use this than the precleanse oil.
Jillian from Philadelphia
Feels good on the skin and emulsified beautifully.
miszfaith from NJ
Love the way it breaks down makeup but do like the liquid Pre-Cleanse a bit better then the balm. Still a great product!
When given the choice between the gel or balm...choose balm!
ArHill from Knoxville, TN
I have heard several do not like the precleanse balm for its oily texture, but if using this with the proper regimen, your cleanser will take care of that immediately following. I have tried both the gel and the balm. The reason I prefer the balm is it's ability of makup removal. While I don't "cake it on," I think we can all agree that eye makeup is the toughest to remove. I also use an argon oil tinted moisturizer as foundation. The precleanse balm grabs and holds the makeup waiting for my daily cleanser to wash it away! It comes with an applicator pad which I use after rubbing the balm between my fingers then applying to my face. I ordered the balm samples for about a year before breaking down and buying the full size and it is worth every cent!
The best ever.

Best product ever.

Works very well
Great makeup remover
Vee from San Francisco
I'm on acne lotions so I can't use alcohol-based makeup removers. I need something super gentle and this is it! It's also effective on waterproof makeup.
Best feeling ever
Kita from Chicago
I tried this immediately upon getting my order & I am telling you I am in love!! The way it smells & makes my skin feel was Amazing!
I love this but only the travel size
Baltopibbles from Baltimore
I love this product, but I highly recommend buying the travel size. I feel like the regular size wasted a lot and it's a different consistently. Will buy again, just the smaller one
Rose from Boca Raton, FL
I absolutely love this product for taking off my makeup and when my skin needs an extra step in my skin care routine. I love the glove it comes with as it's pretty easy to clean. You only need a VERY small amount so it's lasted me monthssssss. It also smells kind of good to me? It doesn't have a fragrance but I just love the balm smell it has. I've been using it with the Dermalofica daily microfoliant and finish off with dermalogica active moist and my skin feels amazing. I have oily-combination skin.
Natasha from Nashua, NH
The idea of "pre-cleansing" never really interested me until I met the Precleanse Balm + Cleansing Mit! I love how easily it removes my makeup, ESPECIALLY my mascara. Great product!
Samantha from Wisconsin
Perfect for helping remove dirt and makeup at the end of the day. I love the pad that comes with it!
I would buy this product again.
Jess from USA
I love the balm or precleanse oil. Either works great on my oily skin.
I broke out !
Marmar from California
My forehead & cheeks have irritation. I broke out so bad!
Broke me out really bad :(
Evelyn from California
I heard great things about dermalogica so wanted to give their products a try. However my first experience using a precleanse balm was NOT a good one. I have combination skin and am not sensitive to most skincare products, but I broke out noticeably a LOT after using this balm. I only recently figured out that it must have been this product because I haven't changed anything else about my routine. Since stopped it 3 days ago I actually haven't had any more breakouts.
I am super sad and disappointed as I wanted to love it!
Reikichik from Illinois
Based on use of the travel size of this product, I purchased the full size. I expected the same creamy consistency as the travel-sized, but when I opened the tube, it was so difficult to dispense the product that I needed to take the cap off and use a cotton swab to scoop out enough to use. I continue to have the same problem even after massaging the tube prior to use. The product is waxy, stiff and does not disburse as easily onto the skin as the travel size. I'm going to call Dermalogica to see if this is normal.
Sarah M from Las Vegas
So the oven mitt thing just kept the product and didn't lay on my skin. I use this on a dry face with dry hands, massage into skin, rinse my hands, and scrub with the suds. Removes my makeup well and has helped in my overall routine for my cystic acne.
I would buy this product again
Karlie from Ga
Loved the sample I got with my order. love the exfoliating mitt that came with it!
Beware if you have oily skin

I've been using this balm ever since I first got into Dermalogica (recently- just a few months ago). I dove headfirst into Dermalogica products upon discovering them, and am obsessed with everything I've used, but especially this product! It's absolutely perfect. The balm consistency means it doesn't leak when I travel with it (which I just did, so I can attest to that personally) and it feels great on the skin. It's the perfect first product to use. It gets off any dirt and grime from the day or the night prior before I actually do a thorough face cleanse with a gel cleansing product. I first used it in a sample so I had the small hand thing that it comes with and after using both the small one (from the sample package) and the large one that this balm comes with, I actually prefer the smaller sample one so I use the smaller applicator and the large container of this product. Love love love love love.
All skin types must have
Sada from Florida
No matter what type of skin you have this pre cleanse is essential! It breaks down makeup and dirt, providing a clean canvas for the cleanser to do its work!
