Dermalogica’s Precleanse Oil

Where do I start? I absolutely adore this little gem by Dermalogica. This was the first product I bought from Dermalogica exactly a year ago now and I fell in love with it after the first use. I’d heard a lot about the Precleanse and I’m sure a lot of you have too, it’s got some great reviews and its easy to see why.

First of all, let’s clear any misconceptions of an “oil” to clean your face. That did scare me a bit but I felt re-assured after reading reviews which I hope I can now pass on to you. The Precleanse is actually an oil that is formulated for use for all skin types, get this.. INCLUDING oily skin! so yes girls, anyone can use this. The oil is packed with nourishing ingredients that melts away make up and all of the days grime from your face.

Dermalogica Precleanse Oil


I personally use this product for my night-time routine (it’s great for removing make up), it makes my skin feel really clean and fresh before bed. I squeeze a few drops on to my dry hands and massage on to my dry face including around my eye areas – it’s great for removing all types of mascara and is definetely my “go-to” product after a heavy night too. Once my face is covered, I wet my hands with warm water and massage over my skin which turns the oil in to a light milky formula which instantly turns the “oil” feeling more “watery”. I then wash off all the build up from the day and my skin is leaving fresh. Dermalogica say that this is the first step in a “double cleanse” process. Following this I then use my Ultra Calming cleanser my Dermalogica at night. The Precleanse makes it easier for the next cleanser to penetrate deeper in to the skin.

This stuff just makes me feel so super clean & diminished any fear of using oil on my face at all. It is quite pricey hence Im currently using it sparingly just at night or saving it for heavy make up days (quite bad!) If i could afford to do so I would certainly use this product every day. Nervertheless, I will continue to repurchase this product and a big thumbs up to Dermalogica from me. 🙂
