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.

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 !

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.

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

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!
Martins Papa from Fountain Hills, AZ
I have oily but dry skin and this product does wonders !
Karlie from georgia
I love the precleanse balm it helps remove makeup.
Rebecca from FL
So so SO in love with this pre-cleanse balm! It makes your skin feel so soft and it does a great job of getting off any makeup or superficial impurities on the face prior to regular cleansing. It makes the skin so smooth and makes it feel hydrated right from the start, even before really getting into my cleansing routine. Definitely one of the best facial products I've ever used. Definitely plan to continue using this for the foreseeable future!
Get this and never worry about picking a product again!!
Emily from Georgia
I absolutely love this product! My mom suggested I try Dermatological, so of course i did. This product has cleared my face for the most part as long as i use it as directed. It feels a tiny bit greasy on the skin, but a clean grease feel haha.
Must Have in my Skincare Routine 🤗🤩‼️
Angela ♈️ from Bothell, Washington
This or the liquid oil form of this awesome product is a must have in my skincare kit 🤗🥰‼️ It removes my waterproof eye makeup and face makeup with ease and leaves my skin clean, not oily. Even if I'm not wearing makeup, I'll use this before I use my facial cleanser to get a deeper clean from my facial cleanser. I am absolutely grateful to my facial girl Melody at Dermalogica for introducing me to this amazing product 5 years ago this month(April). I won't go without this or the liquid form of this. 🤗🤩💃🏻‼️
Pretty good product
Heather from Mason City, IA
I like using the precleanse balm when I feel like I need a bit more moisture in my routine. It works similar to the precleanse oil but goes on thicker. Overall all I prefer the easier to apply precleanse oil but this is also a great product if you're looking for something thicker
Difficult to access
Steph from Costa Mesa, CA
While I do love the way this product works and how easily makeup removes thanks to it, I found it very difficult to access. I have rheumatoid arthritis and the packaging combined with the viscosity made it tough to get the product out, particularly when it was new and when it was almost empty. I prefer the Precleanse in bottle with the pump for this reason.
MtnBikeChick from San Diego
This precleanse balm is amazing. I am already seeing results from just a couple of weeks use. My skin looks smoother and my pores look smaller. The combination of the balm and the mitt is very effective!
One of my favorite products
Jamie B. from Moorhead, MN
Great product over all and I love the mitt it comes with! Some residue/makeup can get in my eyes when using and it can irritate my eyes - otherwise a great product.
I love this balm!
Stacey from Roseburg OR
I have very sensitive skin and this has been amazing. Followed with the cleanser and then the calming gel has been a game changer for me. My skin already shows improvement.
The Precleanse Oil Is So Much Better
Allison from North Carolina
I just finished up a bottle of the Dermalogica Precleanse Oil and was extremely disappointed when I tried the Precleanse Balm, so much so that I am returning it. The tube is very small, does not contain much product for the price, and is extremely difficult to dispense the amount needed. I have dry skin and the Precleanse Oil did not dry my face out in the slightest. The value of this product is just not there, and the scrubbing mitt is too abrasive for sensitive skin. Hard pass on this product, stick with the Precleanse Oil!
I love this product and plan to use it from now on.
Relish from Milwaukee
I have been using the precleanse oil for years. I decided to try the balm and love it. It seems to lift the makeup better and leaves my skin very soft. A great choice for me!
Jill from Louisiana
I prefer the original precleanse oil but I will use the balm version when I've either applied sunscreen on multiple times, had an intense workout or worn a full face of makeup. I feel like it is a more intense, deeper version of the original in my opinion.
ALynn from California
I love the way this breaks down my makeup, but it makes my eyes burn SO bad! I've tried it several times and each time it's painful- I am finally getting rid of it. It's also super hard to squeeze out of the tube!
