Comments about Dermalogica Precleanse Balm:

I dispense a dime sized amount of the balm on the mitt and rub it all over my dry face to melt away the makeup. Then I use a washcloth to remove all the makeup and balm from my face and follow with the special cleansing gel.

    Comments about Dermalogica Precleanse Balm:

    I live in Chicago so cold winter weather dries out my sensitive skins so removing my makeup with a makeup remover wipe is a big no for me. So when I got this product I used it to remove my makeup and it removed all of my face makeup even my liquid lipstick! I love this product! The only down side is that it did burn my eyes for a minute or two after use. I also received this product free for testing purpose.

      Comments about Dermalogica Precleanse Balm:

      I wanted to love the original Precleanse, but the oil was intimidating and hard to use. I saw a review for this product from a beauty influencer and knew I needed to try it. I bought the smaller one originally to try and immediately bought the full size. It "takes the day off" very easily. I also feel like my cleanser is more effective since it doesn't have to take off the makeup. Highly recommended!!

        Comments about Dermalogica Precleanse Balm:

        I was initially nervous before using this product as it is quick thick, and I didn't want to clog my pores. I was very happy to learn that not only did this product remove my makeup, but it left my skin feeling really soft, and not at all oily or dry! I am definitely making this apart of my beauty regime! I received this product complimentary for review purposes.

            Disclaimer: I received this product free for testing purposes, but this in no way impacts my views. If I HAD to choose something I did not like about this product, it would be the price...BUT...I get it! It is worth every penny because it definitely works. Also, the little glove kind of exfoliates your skin so it's like a 2 for 1. I would definitely recommend to anyone who likes to go to bed 100% sure that there is no product on their face!

              Comments about Dermalogica Precleanse Balm:

              This oil cleanser does an amazing job at removing makeup, especially waterproof mascara and liquid lipstick. Unfortunately this product makes me break out badly, and I cannot continue using it. I received this product free for testing, and gave it to a friend who really loves it.

                • Q:

                  what is the difference between this (the balm) and the precleanse with the pump?

                    A:

                    ? There are a few different
                    ingredients in PreCleanse Balm that make it ideal for
                    normal to dry skin whereas PreCleanse is ideal for
                    normal to oily skin. NEW PreCleanse Balm is also
                    great for travel due to its solid form, and comes with
                    a double-sided, soft touch, cleansing and exfoliating
                    mitt for application.

                • Q:

                  Does this help with oil control as well as the original formula? I have oily aging skin so I'm wanting the oil control but also some moisture to help soften my fine lines. Thanks!!!

                    A:

                    The original formula is best suited for normal to oily skin. PreCleanse Balm is best suited for normal to dry skin. To reduce fine line and wrinkles we recommend Overnight Retinol Repair!
