Product Review: Dermalogica Precleanse

I posted a short review of this product in one of my Dermalogica love-rant posts back in February 2010, but I thought it might be nice to do a more in depth review of the product as it is still one of my holy grail skin care items. I love the Dermalogica Precleanse. I’ve tried various other oil cleansers, but I keep coming back to Dermalogica because it has worked the best for me. I say that because I’ve heard quite a few people say that this product simply didn’t work for them. It’s definitely an on-the-fence product, so if you are considering trying it I would suggest sourcing out a sample before investing in the full size bottle. The Precleanse is an oil that you use on your skin prior to using your regular cleanser. To use it you apply the oil to your face with your hands (ensuring that your face is still dry) then wet your hands and rub them over your face to ‘activate’ the product, rinse with water and follow with your regular cleanser. I find that using the precleanse in conjunction with my normal cleanser leaves my skin feeling cleaner than it’s ever felt before. In fact I really struggle now on nights when I’m lazy and I skip the pre-cleansing step because my skin never feels clean enough. It’s quite addictive really. The Dermalogica Precleanse retails for $65.50 and is available for purchase online from Adore Beauty. If you’re lucky, you can sometimes pick it up for a bargain price over at Strawberry Net. Go forth and precleanse!
