The professional's deep cleansing weapon! Achieve ultra clean and healthy skin with a double cleansing regimen that begins with PreCleanse. This plant-based cleansing oil, fortified with Olive and Kukui oils, thoroughly melts layers of excess sebum (oil), sunscreen, waterproof make-up, environmental pollutants and residual skin products that build-up during the day. When water is added it transforms this hydrophilic (water-loving) formula into a milky emulsion, easily rinsing away oil-based debris from the skin's surface and allowing your recommended Dermalogica Cleanser to penetrate even further for professional cleansing results. Formulated with conditioning Rice Bran and Vitamin E oils, this gentle blend can be used around the eye area to even remove waterproof mascara. Offers a deep cleansing ideal for even the most oily skin conditions. Contains no artificial fragrance or color. Professional recommendation advised.

How It Works:
  • Use as the first step of your Dermalogica Double Cleanse, and follow with your recommended Dermalogica Cleanser.
  • A blend of rich oils melts through oil and oil-based debris that collects on skin throughout the day.
  • Vitamin E Oil, a rich antioxidant, helps improve skin smoothness and softness.
  • Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride: is an emulsifying agent that is activated by the addition of water to release the bonded oils from the skin's surface.

We recommend that first-time Dermalogica users visit an authorized skin treatment professional for a client consultation in an ULTA store.

Using dry hands, massage over dry face and eyes to dissolve surface oil and dirt. Concentrate on areas of congestion or stubborn debris. Wet hands and continue massaging to create a light, milky emulsion. Rinse with lukewarm water. Follow with recommended Dermalogica Cleanser for professional cleasing results.

Comments about Dermalogica Travel Size PreCleanse:

I purchased the travel size first to see if I'd like it. I have used this about a week now and I'm loving it so far! After using the pre-cleanse, i will rinse and follow up with my Rodan+Fields cleanser.

    Comments about Dermalogica Travel Size PreCleanse:

    Tried the precleanse balm first. I think I like that one better. I feel like I have to use more of this and it doesn't seem to get makeup off like the balm does. I've only used twice but I think I'll get the balm from now on.

      Comments about Dermalogica Travel Size PreCleanse:

      First off, Dermalogica can do no wrong in my book. I have been using this brand for close to 20 years and have tried just about everything- and loved it all! I don't always wear foundation, but when I do, I feel like I want a little something extra to make sure that it's completely removed at the end of the day. PreCleanse does the trick immediately, without making me feel like I've scraped a layer of skin off my face. It's gentle and works perfectly when I follow it up with Special Cleansing Gel. This never dries me out or makes me feel greasy. I highly recommend this product.

        I like to use this in the evening to remove my makeup! I have sensitive skin and also eczema and it helps keep the dry patches away too. Must be sure to follow with a cleanser that isn't too stripping though.

          Comments about Dermalogica Travel Size PreCleanse:

          I've never used a Dermalogica product and when I used this it instantly made me cringe from the smell of it... It's a strong chemical smell and I'm not sure why people have said it smells good, maybe I got an old one? Because mine for sure smelt like burning rubber.. that alone is why i had given it low stars. I did feel like this was cleansing my skin-- for the price of this tiny bottle, I can't see myself frequently buying.

              Comments about Dermalogica Travel Size PreCleanse:

              I'm giving this product 3 stars because I personally need non comedogenic products because my pores are blocked easily and this product was not that. I ended up with 4 large blemishes that were underneath the skin from blocked pores. This product just wasn't meant for me.

              The product itself worked exactly the way it's advertised when you read the directions. It really does need to be applied while your hand and face are dry. I was looking for a solution to remove makeup that I could use in the shower but that was my own mistake because I didn't read the directions from the label before purchasing.

              • Q:

                what is the difference between the precleanse oil and the precleanse balm to oil? Are they targeted to different types of skin?

                  A:

                  These two products are the same, they just come in different forms. The precleanse balm is much thicker and needs to be emulsified on the skin.

              • Q:

                Can I use this without having to cleanse again afterwards? Why do you have to cleanse your face with another product?
                I don't wear much make up, I do wear sunscreen and a pressed powder sometimes.
                Thanks

                  A:

                  Thank you for your inquiry. PreCleanse is an oil based cleanser that will help to breakdown and remove surface dirt, sunscreen, make up and pollution. Your second cleanser with your regular cleanser will cleanse your skin's surface and remove impurities from your follicle further.

                  Absolutely! PreCleanse can be used on all skin types and will work wonders for oily congested skin. This water soluble oil will break down other oils and be washed away with water.

                I am leaving to go on a trip soon and I am trying to decide whether to bring the full sized bottle of the PreCleanse or the travel sized one.

                Do you know approximately how many uses I would get out of the travel sized one? I plan to use it once a day.
