Dermalogica Precleanse Balm

Use code: ESCENTUAL20

Nourish your skin as you cleanse with the Dermalogica Precleanse Balm, a thorough cleanser for normal to dry complexions that lifts away makeup, dirt and impurities.

The vegan cleanser is a balm-to-oil version of Dermalogica’s best-selling precleansing oil. Specially formulated to deeply cleanse the skin as the first step in your double cleanse routine, the balm attracts excess sebum, makeup, sunscreen and environmental pollutants.

Residual product build-up and impurities are melted away without compromising the skin’s barrier or clogging pores. It can even be used around the delicate eye area, helping to melt away even the most stubborn waterproof mascara.

The Precleanse Balm smoothes and calms the skin while effectively cleansing the complexion. The skin’s protective barrier is maintained with apricot kernel oil, while it’s reinforced and strengthened with a hydrating natural biolipid complex that locks in moisture.

Plus, Dermalogica uses a blend of six essential oils - lavender, orange, grapefruit, mandarin, lemongrass and lemon ironbark - to invigorate the senses. The complexion is left nourished, smooth and ultra clean.

The face wash is accompanied by a soft yet effective cleansing mitt that allows for your deepest cleanse yet. The grey ridges of the mitt thoroughly cleanse debris from the skin, and enhance the effectiveness of the balm. The mitt also provides a gentle exfoliation, helping to keep your complexion clean, healthy and radiant.

Why We Love It

The secret to achieving clear skin? Cleansing! The Precleanse Balm ensures your most effective cleanse yet, as it targets the build-up of makeup, sunscreen, dirt and daily pollutants that can linger on the skin and cause breakouts and blemishes. By using the Precleanse ahead of your normal cleanser, you’re enhancing the efficacy of your follow-up face wash as it can deeply penetrate the skin without having to target the build-up of impurities.

Plus, the double-sided cleansing mitt enhances the cleansing experience as it feels both luxurious and hardworking. The paste-like balm has a fresh, clean scent that refreshes the complexion and melts into a non-greasy oil on the skin; plus, it emulsifies with just a small amount of water.

How To Use It

Squeeze the balm onto the cleansing mitt or dry hands and massage over dry skin. Add a little water to emulsify and continue to massage in. Rinse off and follow up with your second cleanser.
