    This is the BEST thing to take your makeup off with. You don't need very much and it actually takes off everything including eyeliner and mascara. Definitely worth the money

      Comments about Dermalogica Precleanse Balm:

      Before I could never get all my make up off at night even with scrubbing or brushes ... I've been using the balm for a few weeks now and may makeup seems to devolve off before I even make it to my cleanser .. Making my nightly routine faster and more effective ... I also have adult acne and can see a big difference in how much clearer my face is now.

        Comments about Dermalogica Precleanse Balm:

        I tried the Dermalogica liquid precleanse first, but I didn't like the fact that it's thin and drippy. The balm is much better for me because it is easy to massage into my skin rather than dripping off. I love the massaging mitt, too.

          I use this product daily morning and night. It has helped my dry skin so much especially in this hard winter. Products like first aid beauty cleanser was making my skin peel off and I wasn't sure what other products to try since I did not want to risk my skin. Thankfully this came through and I am so glad I gave it a try. I would highly recommend me. It's been my go to since I received it. I received this product free for testing purposes.

          Smells amazing

          By Liz

          from Louisiana

          Comments about Dermalogica Precleanse Balm:

          I initially bought the travel size to try and loved it so much I went back and bought the big one. It smells so good and removes every bit of my makeup. I use my regular cleanser and after and this stuff makes my face feel so smooth. I was nervous about putting this on my face because I have sensitive, acne prone, combo skin but this doesn't break me out. It does burn my eyes if I use it to remove eye makeup so I still use a different eye makeup remover. I will definitely continue to buy this!

            This product removes makeup like a dream. The makeup just slides right off, the mitt is weird, but does seem to help scrub without the irritation of other cleansing systems. Afterwards, your skin will be sqeeky clean. It does give you a clean canvas, but if you have dry skin, it could dry your skin out. I received this free for testing along with the cleanser. They recommended as a dual cleanse, but honestly you can do this as a stand alone.

              This was really great to use with the exfoliating mitten. I was very surprised at the way my face felt, as I normally cannot find a cleanse that works with my oily/dry skin type. I got this product free in exchange for reviews, and although I am not looking forward to spending the true amount for the product, I believe it is definitely worth the funds! What a deal.

              Comments about Dermalogica Precleanse Balm:

              The precleanse balm was complementary sending to me, and so far is the best thing that I have tested. I doesn't have any fragrance. It has a thick texture that help you to apply. It come with a glove that helps you to scrub the facen sometimes it gets too thick if storage in a very cool place, but it didn't bother me . Also, the fact that you won't need water to apply it is the best. Sometimes, let's be honest, we are so tired for just wash our faces at night, with this balm you will need to wash your face at the end, but at first you just would need to apply and with a little massage with your hands o with the glove it will help you to get rid of the makeup and dirty. I personally used my hands to distribute the product, since I don't use too much makeup although the glove is better when you need a deep cleanse, so I recommend use it like 2 or 3 a week or once a week if super dry skin. I am obsseded with this prouct. I would recomend it, and I would purchase one for myself.

                Comments about Dermalogica Precleanse Balm:

                I've used the precleanse balm a handful of times now, and I just haven't become a big fan. It could be because I'm not used to using oil-based cleansers, but I feel like it's been difficult to use this to break up and clean up my eye makeup without irritating my eyes. For the time it takes to work the balm in and then activate it with water, I feel like I could be getting more makeup off my using a wipe or using micellar water. I do love the cleaning glove. It feels great on my skin! *I received this product for free*

                  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!
