I try using it when I received a sample. My skin is very sensitive, but after using a week, I feel my skin fresh after cleansing. No more oil or dust.
This precleanse is really something unique. It has a great citrus smell and gets my skin super clean.
i really don't use this everyday as they recommend. i use this especially for a make up remover. or after i've done a super sweaty work out.
helps get all the sweaty salty depsits off my face.
especially if i did an outdorr run (city running, pollution, dirt)
its also very gentle.
I have an oily t-zone and wear eye makeup. This product removes everything and breaks up the oil on my face. I love it.
i'm a huge fan of the daily microfoliant and the special cleansing gel, but i'm on the fence when it comes to the precleanse. i've used it off and on, and i think it makes me break out! not an *intense* breakout -- but still. i'm not a huge fan of the oily consistency of the product.
i feel like the precleanse step complicates my beauty routine, and i've found that i tend to leave it out. this product does work well to remove dirt and makeup, but i feel like the cleanser and microfoliant already do a great job of that.
This product is good for make up removal and it removes facial oil as well.
Do you have questions about this product?
Get answers from Dermalogica Skin Therapists and our community.
Q:If I have very sensitive and dry skin, would you recommend using this product? Or will it dry me out even further?
Q:Whenever I apply the pre-cleanser to my face I immediately start getting white bumps on my cheek areas and other places on my face. Does this mean that this product might be too harsh for my skin type? I am only oily on my cheeks, nose and forehead - which I think equates to combination skin. I also have visible pores on my cheeks. I do not want to continue using this product if it is irritating to the skin.
Q:Do I use this night and morning or only at night?
Q:Does Precleanse contain parabens? I've been using it, and I love it. The Think Dirty app rates it a 9, due to parabens. Is this an older version that has been rated?
Q:Ever since Dermalogica switched to the pump, the oil leaks out of the bottom after every pump and spills onto everything in my medicine cabinet. I lose a lot of product this way besides the annoyance of having to wipe everything down constantly. Is there any way to change the packaging or make it leak proof. I also can't travel with it now that it's a pump. I preferred the flip top.
A:that is true, I leave it on the counter and I always have an oil round circle when I remove the bottle. I preferred the flip top as well.
Q:Anyone having problems with the packaging? No matter how gently I use this bottle, the product always seeps up and around the pump, making a mess.
Q:Does the prcleanse have to followed by a dermalogica cleansing product?: I don't use the daily microfoliant every day, would you say this product only works well if you use it in conjunction with a dermalogica product, or would you recommend even if you used a different cleanser after, like clearasil or something.
A:Pre cleanse is a highly effective product. It works best with Dermalogica products because a product like Clearasil doesn't contain natural and non irritating ingredients. The Daily Microfoliant is a great product that can be used daily. The answer to your question is no you don't have to use pre cleanse followed by a Dermalogica product. However results aren't guaranteed to be as successful.
Q:Would you say this is a surfactant or a deep cleansing?
A:This is not a deep cleansing system. I have asked the same question. My esthetician suggested using this prior to cleansing, but that it is not a cleanser in and of itself. You will want to follow up with a deep cleansing solution of some sort. I recommend the Essential Cleansing Gel or the MediBac Cleansing Gel.
