I think my love for cleansing oils (and my wide and varied experimentation with brands) is no longer in doubt yes? 😉 Here’s another I’ve been using for a while, and which (to my surprise) I am considering a repurchase! *gasp*
I have never really used anything from Dermalogica skincare so the PreCleanse is my first. I had no expectations of it at all but let’s cut to the chase. I love this one! 😀
If you are already familiar with cleansing oils, this is a cleansing oil. It is a makeup remover cum facial cleanser and it does the job very well.
Like all cleansing oils, you have to use this with dry hands on dry skin. I use it the way I use all cleansing oils (dry hands, dry face; add water to emulsify a few times before rinsing). I love the scent which is lightly citrus and very refreshing at the end of the day.
It cleans my makeup off without problems at all. Even waterproof mascara (although that sometimes takes a bit of work so I’d suggest you remove your mascara first). I am quite liberal with it but I have been quite pleasantly surprised that the bottle, although looking quite small at first, isn’t finished yet after 2 months. And I use it practically every day.
What might be a good thing is the packaging. It isn’t packaged as a pump bottle, but as a nozzle style dispenser. This allows you to control just how much oil you need each time. Some days I use less, some days I use more, depending on whether I have more or less makeup on. The texture is quite liquid and not thick or sticky at all.
I even use it on weekends, when I don’t wear makeup, because I just like how nice and clean my skin feels thereafter. I do double cleanse (follow up with a facial wash) all the time, and the name of the product is PreCleanse which implies you use it before any cleansing gel/foam.
It isn’t drying on my skin, it cleans my skin a treat and it smells lovely. I don’t have any complaints 🙂
Pros: Light texture, Lovely citrus scent, Not drying, Cleans skin well of makeup and dirt
I know there are a few Dermalogica users among the regular readers here so I’m sure quite a few of you have tried this yes? Do you like it as much as I do? 🙂 This is one of the products which Dermalogica is selling under the FITE programme where some money goes towards helping women entrepreneurs on the path to financial independence. Here is the ingredient list for anyone interested.
I think I might have to suck it up and purchase this when I run out. I have seen this on StrawberryNET.com in a large salon size (473ml). Maybe I should get that one 😛 Since I like this so much, do you have other Dermalogica recs that you like that you think I might like too?
Dermalogica PreCleanse retails at RM140/150ml (I think) at Dermalogica counters and stockists. I’ve also seen it sold on StrawberryNET.com but I don’t know how the prices compare.
