I was provided the Dermalogica PreCleanse Oil and Wipes for review. However, all opinions are my own.
If you’ve been around for awhile then you know that I’ve come to love me some Dermalogica products. I’ve reviewed the Microfoliant and the Dynamic Skin Recovery on the blog. Having tried previous Dermalogica products, and loved them, I was a bit skeptical when I received these, I mean you can’t like every product from a company right?
The Dermalogica PreCleanse System works on the “Double Cleanse” system. With the Double Cleanse system you use a PreCleanse product to break down your stubborn makeup, it even breaks down products like sunscreen. Dermalogica’s reasoning behind this Double Cleanse system is that breaking down these itms before hand will give you a deeper more professional level of cleaning.
The Dermalogica PreCleanse Oil is an oil cleanser that helps break down products on your face. To use the Dermalogica PreCleanse Oil you start by putting some of the product into dry hands and then applying to a dry face. For a deeper clean you can add a little bit of water to the product on your face and continue rubbing until it forms a “milky emulsion”. You then rinse with warm water and continue with your skin care routine.

If you’re a little iffy about the Dermalogica PreCleanse Oil then you can use the Dermalogica PreCleanse Wipes. The wipes are premoistened and work like any other makeup remover wipe, however, with the Dermalogica PreCleanse Oil once you’ve wiped the wipe over your face the first time you can wet it to activate it’s “emulsion” process and wipe it back over your face. Easy Peasy Lemon Squeazy. You of course would then follow up with your skin care routine.

I follow up my Dermalogica PreCleanse System with a cleanser, either Philosophy’s Purity or Michael Todd’s Oat Cleanser, and a moisturizer, always Embryolisse. Some things to note about the Dermalogica PreCleanse System is that they do have a bit of a scent to them but it’s not a perfume or harsh scent. The Dermalogica PreCleanse Oil smells like a mix of citrus and lavender, while the Dermalogica PreCleanse Wipes have just a citrus scent to them. It’s nothing that would keep me from using them. Also, the Also, you can buy the Dermalogica PreCleanse System as a large system (5.1 oz. Oil and 20 wipes) for $56.00, a small system (1 oz. oil and 20 wipes) for $28.00, the oil separately (5.1 oz. or 1 oz) for $38.00 or $10.00 respectively, and the wipes separately (20 wipes) for $18.00. Lastly, you should know that I LOVED both of these products. When I run out I will be purchasing more and I think the Dermalogica PreCleanse Wipes may become my go to wipes since my favorites aren’t sold anymore!
