Introduce yourself to the professional's deep cleansing weapon! Achieve ultra clean and healthy skin with a double cleansing regimen that begins with Dermalogica Precleanse. It offers deep cleansing, ideal for even the most oily skin conditions.
Fortified with olive and kukui oils, Dermalogica Precleanse thoroughly melts layers of excess sebum, sunscreen, waterproof make up, environmental pollutants and residual skin products that build up during the day. Featuring conditioning rice bran and vitamin E oils, this gentle blend is sensitive enough to be used around your eye area.
When water is added to this hydrophilic formula it transforms into a milky emulsion, easily rinsing away oil based debris from your skin's surface. This allows your favourite Dermalogica Cleanser to penetrate even further for professional cleansing results.

I have used this for many years with the special cleansing gel for my combination skin. The oil is like a liquid rather than a greasy oil. On contact with water it turns milky and removes all make-up including waterproof mascara. Lovely orange like smell which is very delicate.

I have a really sensitive eye area and as a makeup wearer it was always really hard to take off waterproof eyeliner (it's a gel eyeliner from Inglot) or mascara. I can't use any makeup remover wipes because it feels like I'm taking off a top layer of my skin, specially around my eyes, so I had to try using makeup remover in liquid form. I tried many makeup removers out there, from drugstore to high end, and they were ok at taking my makeup but mediocre when it came to the eyeliner. I would use almost 5 round cotton pads to take all of my makeup from my face and there would still be eyeliner on my eyes. The cotton would also be very harsh around my eyes, leaving the skin really red and with a burn feeling. So I had enough of it and decided to try out an oil to remove makeup. That's when I saw reviews on the Dermalogica Precleanse. It was the best decision ever to buy this. It takes off everything, even waterproof liquid lipsstick. Foundation? Gone. Mascara? Gone. The really-hard-to-get-out-eyeliner? Gone! Then you just wash your face and it melts off. Regarding the product, its consistency is of a normal skincare oil and the scent reminds me of lemon candy. Regarding the packaging, I don't know if I got a bad batch but everytime I used it half of the product from the pump would get on my hand and the other half would spill out of the pump, leaving the packaging and my sink full of oil. I had to take the product out of mine and put it in another container, so beware of that.

Dermalogica's precleanse is a must have for your daily skin care routine. I was surprised to see how fast it lifted my makeup, especially as I wear full coverage makeup on a daily basis. It gives a nice clean feeling before you even cleanse, and it's incredibly gentle on sensitive skin. Now, my cleanser is much more effective after using the precleanse. Very satisfied with this product, and I would certainly recommend it.

I always used a single cleansing product. But since I was recommended pre cleanse my skin has massively improved in terms of spots. It's a light oil which you use neat on your face ,add a little water and the makeup and dirt from the day is all shifted. Then when you use your normal cleanser it really can give you the benefit. It's a little pricey but lasts ages and is worth the investment.

this product performed well to melt away any trace of make up. Well, it may contain a few friendly plant based oils like rice bran and apricot kernel, it also has lavender and lemon essential oil which irritates the skin. For those concern, it also contain parabens. For the price they charge, there are cheaper alternatives that delivers equivalent or better results such as jojoba, coconut, argan, moringa seed oils.

I have ben a costumer with Look Fantastic since 2005 and have recommended the site to soo many people. I am very happy with their service and products. Though I wish they would ship skincare products to Bahrain where I live now. I love Dermalogica and the precleance is excellent.

I could never understand the point of a "Pre-Cleanse" until I tried this.
Now, I wouldn't be without it.
It quickly and easily dissolves all makeup, including even waterproof mascara, so when you then use your usual products you need a lot less.
At the end of a late night, when I'm feeling particularly tired or lazy, I can just use it quickly on its own, so at least I know that I have removed most of my makeup before bed!

Having spent more money than I care to mention on expensive face products I finally found this gem. I would describe my skin as dry, prone to the odd hormonal break out and on the wrong side of 30! I also wear full coverage make up daily. This pre-cleanse oil has been a god send to my skin. I use it twice daily - on bare skin when I wake up and it really wakes up your skin and provides a smooth base for your moisturiser and make up and at night when wearing a full face of make up I massage this fully into my skin, emulsify it (add a little water) and massage liberally. I find removing with warm water and a soft face cloth really makes the difference too. It removes every trace of makeup including water proof mascara. It is so gentle but effective and so kind to my skin especially when I have a breakout. Your skin feels so clean, soft and refreshed after use. A little goes a long way so a full size bottle should last months. You will NOT be disappointed, try it!

Had received a sample with previous dermalogica order. It's great for removing all traces of makeup and SPF. Nice smell too. Can't fault it. It's my go to product for first cleanse? A little goes a long way - 30 ml sample lasted 2 months.

I like the idea cleaning face in two steps. Using precleanser required a bit practising first but now it's part of my daily routine. My combination skin feels now cleaner after cleansing than it did before. I don't consider this product as a miracle maker but it is a good addition to cleaning routine. Dosing the right amount from bottle is quite difficult, usually I get too much. A pump would work much better.

I'm 34 and I am plagued with bad skin.
As my skin is oily, I've always avoided products containing oil and wouldn't have touched this product until it was used during a facial and the therapist explained how it could help me. She said that oil attracts oil (think about oil on water and how it clumps together), and that it would help to draw impurities and the excess oil from my skin whilst leaving my skin moisturised.
I've been using the product twice a day for almost a month and my skin has really cleared. I have noticed a huge difference in the texture of my skin too. I massage a small amount into my skin, really concentrating on congested areas and then rinse with warm water. I then follow on with Dermalogica Dermal Clay Cleanser.
I thoroughly recommend this product. It's well worth the money and gives you a really deep cleanse without being harsh on your skin. If you have spotty, blemished skin, BUY BUY BUY!!

Great product! It take my makeup away easily.

This Dermalogica Precleanse is excellent to use before any cleanser, especially in combination with fx dermalogica essential cleansing solutions. Also very good in combination before shaving before adding Dermalogica Daily scrub. In my opinion a must have, if you would like added benefits together with any of your cleanser. If you have oily or combination skin, you could use it before Dermalogica clearing skin wash.

Another lovely product by Dermalogica! I wouldn't recommend to use it everyday as it is quite expensive, but it is really good for heavy makeup, and if you've had a long day and your face feels a bit grotty, it literally melts away your makeup! Also good on holiday to clean of suntan lotion from your face, to save clogging up your pores. All round very good!!

Received a free sample after a facial and have used it ever since. Leaves my skin feeling really clean and feels like all the grime and oil from the day and makeup is all gone with out being harsh on my face. An awesome product!

Love love love this product!Before I started using it I couldnt really see the point...why pre cleanse if you're about to cleanse??Well I am reformed!It removes all the gunk in your skin so when you do go to cleanse it removes the dirt deep down.I have ultra sensitive skin that can be dry but I also get breakouts, this product is great for controlling them.Dont let the fact it is an oil put you off! It really will sort those stubborn spots out and clear underlying bumps and congestion.

This is a truly fabulous product. Having used several different brands of cleanser in the past, I had never before found one which effectively removes all make-up, particularly mascara and eyeliner - until now!It is gentle on the skin yet manages to remove all traces of make-up, banishing panda eyes and making you feel superbly clean and refreshed.
