Pre cleanse and essential step


I have been using pre cleanse for so many years and for me it is an essential step in my cleansing routine. Although I don’t wear a lot of makeup at the end of my day a double cleanse just doesn’t clean my skin enough and my skin still feels dirty. With the pre cleanse as my first step I then only need to cleanse once to get serum ready skin. Since using pre cleanse I get very few breakouts and no longer suffer from blackheads around my nose.

    this is a great product! would be even better with a price reduction! expensive!
  3. Great PreCleanse


    verified purchaser
    I prefer using this to remove my makeup than micellar water. Its a lot more effective and just melts away every trace of makeup including waterproof mascara. Smells amazing too! Just wish it wasn't so pricey!
  4. Pre everything


    this is a great product that lasts ages! it is quite expensive however it does help remove dirt and oil
  5. Magical!


    I love the feeling off putting this on my face and it melts, sinks to the skin subtlety. The smell is just divine
  6. 100% melts your makeup


    This will completely melt off your makeup in the first stage of cleansing. But because it is oil based, youll need a second cleanser to wash off the oily residue. It works 100% as long as you follow the instructions re: mixing with water etc
  7. Perfect for removing makeup and soothing


    Dermalogica PreCleanse works well for removing makeup, and was soothing for my sensitive skin. The product is an oil and when rubbed into the skin removes all the 'yuck' stuff and I loved that it did not feel like it was 'stripping' my skin, but instead nourishing it.
  8. best thing

    perfecting skin

    it is such a good makeup remover. i tried it as a sample and i am already hooked. it removes the makeup so gently and does not dries the skin out.
  9. Great for sensitive skin


    This oil cleanser is best for all weathers and skin, I wish they can make it more affordable
  10. perfect first cleanse


    the absolute best oil cleanser out there. a light oil formula that perfectly melts off all my makeup, even waterproof mascara and eyeliner. Highly recommend for all skin types
  11. Soothing oil cleanser


    This is an oil cleanser that removes makeup easily while leaving the skin feeling soothed and clean. It also smells very soothing (think a light botanical scent) and just so lovely to use at the end of a long day
  12. First cleanse queen


    So good!
    Stops me from having to cleanse 3-4 times to get makeup off and get a proper clean to only 2
    Once with pre cleanser second with foaming cleanser.
    It also leaves your skin lightly hydrated but definitely not oily or clogged
    It turns into a refreshing lather when you add water
  13. Dermalogica PreCleanse


    I bought this to add to my travel pack I have been using this product for over 2 years.
  14. Takes off makeup and grime gently


    This precleanse was recommended to me by a facialist almost as an afterthought. I saw it was on special and gave it a try and it's become an essential part of my routine. It removes all of my makeup and daily grime before moving on to cleansing. Love it.
  15. Amazing but just so expensive

    Emma Loves Skincare

    I really really enjoy this product - it's so gentle on my skin but cleans deep down and makes me feel so fresh and clean afterwards. The only downfall is the price - it's just a little too much! Even though it does last a while...
  16. So good!


    I love this product, it makes taking off my makeup at the end of the day so easy.
  17. Best makeup remover!


    Provides a super easy and deep clean prior to cleansing. Makeup just slides off. Makes washing your face much quicker.
  18. Lovely to use but a bit expensive


    This product is lovely, but I think it's a tad expensive. It smells amazing, has some beautiful natural ingredients, and breaks down makeup really easily. It's the perfect first cleanse even for oily skin. I just wish it was a bit cheaper!
  19. Game changer


    I know I'm late in discovering this but I just love this oil cleanser. It's fantastic at removing for step.one of my double cleanse. Can't recommend it enough!
  20. My holy grail make up remover


    I have been using this cleanser since i was 20 (i'm 33) and i wouldn't use anything else to remove my make up! Applied to a dry face you lightly work it into the skin, emulsify with water and then remove with a cloth and your face is ready for your second cleanse. Only thing i've found that can remove all of my eye make up without having to go over the area many times, which you don't want to do a...

  21. worth the money


    This stuff is like magic. I use it in the morning before my shower, massage it in for 5 or so minutes and it basically melts away all the dead skin and impurities from overnight AND leaves you still feeling moisturised. It doesn't rip away all of your skins natural oils, just the surface layer stuff and clogged pores, so you feel fresh and glowing after use. It is amazing, I have repurchased alrea...

  22. The best to remove make up!


    I love this product! I use it every night to remove all traces of my make up and then follow with the special cleansing gel. These products work great together. I highly recommend this product to anyone wanting to take the day off without stripping or rubbing the skin bare. Wouldn't use anything else!
  23. love it


    been using it since forever...love everything this brand offers.
  24. Obsessed with this (but is on pricey side)


    If you can afford to buy this as a pre cleanse then don't hesitate - it is an INCREDIBLE product. It feels amazing and removes every speck of makeup. It is so luxurious. I do find it to be a little too pricey for what it is - essentially a really fancy makeup remover. Micellar water will work just as well, but doesn't feel as luxurious.
  25. A dream!


    It’s so great for removing makeup! It’s very easy to use, particularly at night when your tired and just wanna get your makeup off. I really enjoy using this!
  26. Best PreCleanse


    This precleanser smells incredibly good and smells like refreshing ingredients that are good for the skin. This product is easily apply-able and gets rid of all starting dirt on the skin. I usually follow this with a gel or foaming cleanser for the double cleanse at night time.
  27. LOOOOOVE!!


    I cannot get enough of this product! My sister has this and was begging me to stop using makeup wipes and get onto this product, I then received a sample in my next adore beauty order and my goodness I haven’t looked back! Nothing removes makeup better than an oil. I always used to use micellar water with makeup pads followed by cleansing and somehow that was never enough! You do have to follow up...

  28. good product


    I received this as a sample. It is a pretty good deep-cleansing oil but a little bit expensive.
  29. Great first step


    This is a great first step in my daily skin care routine. Easy to use and you don’t need a huge amount of product to get the job done. Really effectively removes my heavy makeup and preps my face for my foam cleanser. You might be thinking “do I really need a PRE cleanse?” You certainly do if you wear any kind of makeup. Makes a world of difference.
  30. Best makeup remover


    This is amazing at taking off all makeup, great cleansing oil.
  31. 2 in 1


    I love that this is a daily option, but can remove a crazy amount of make up off your face in the most gentle manner. As someone who has tried a lot of make up removers, this is basically an oil remover and a water based remover combo. Really good for those who wear make up every day but are tired of having to use a lot of cotton pads to get it off. So gentle and easy to use.
  32. Love this cleansing oil


    Such a lovely cleansing oil, ideal as first step to remove makeup and prep skin for second cleanser. Smells lovely and rinses off without leaving any residue which is great for a cleansing oil.
  33. Can’t rate this high enough !!


    I’m not a fan of micellar water and wanted something to help take off full face of makeup and I’m so happy I purchased this, I was so surprised with how well it cleans the face and removes makeup. It’s definitely worth the price I would repurchase this over and over again!
  34. A must-have product


    This product does exactly what it says on the label - it’s melts away the day’s makeup and takes off absolutely everything. This precleanse has substituted my 5 makeup wipes at the end of every day with only one pump of product required. So much easier to have this in my skincare routine and the bottle will last for ages! A total must-have!!
  35. Works on even the heaviest makeup


    I used to use this religiously before balms became a thing. I like to wear a full face of makeup when I go out and this is really effective in getting in there and lifting all that makeup off, so there's less tugging and pulling at my skin.
  36. love


    Removes make up extremely well, I was quite impressed! Will definitely continue to buy
  37. Heavy duty make-up remover


    This product is amazing for a first cleanse. Even if I am wearing heavy, waterproof makeup it just melts away after using this. Bottle lasts for a long time as you only need a small amount, but the price tag can sting a bit when there's other cleansers out there that do the same job. That being said I will still continue to buy and love this product!
  38. The Best Pre Cleanse

    Brooklyn- Adore Beauty Staff

    I use this as a pre-cleanse before my normal cleanser and this helps get off all my makeup effortlessly and it smells so nice! in love
  39. Favourite


    This product is really effective. It takes off my makeup easily. It makes my skin feel soft. Definitely recommend.
  40. Great for stubborn makeup


    I was told my particular waterproof mascara needed a particular remover but this precleanse oil cleans it off effortlessly.
    I have sensitive eyes and try not to use wipes as it makes my eyes go red and sting a little bit because this is so smooth, it doesn’t irritate my skin or my eyes
  41. One of my favourites


    This is one of my favourite skincare products to use! Great for taking off makeup prior to cleansing and also great to use before cleansing in general. Makes my skin feel soft and smells amazing. A little goes a long way
  42. highly recommend


    Amazing value for money, smells awesome. Comes out as an oil based, gets rid of makeup no dramas - then washes off with some light foaming. Still my go-to for precleanse.

    Keep in mind that Dermalogica works best in a team - this cleanser is fantastic paired with the toner and add in the oomph of the precleanse on days when you've worn a full face of make up.
  43. Effective and gentle


    I’ve tried a few pre cleanse/oil cleansers and a couple of Korean ones have given me terrible blackheads but switched to this baby and was sold. A little goes quite a long way, and is effective without stripping and drying. Definitely nicer than double cleansing with my standard cleanser.

  44. Game changer for makeup removal


    Previously I religiously used micellar water to remove my makeup as that was the only thing that didn’t irritate my sensitive skin. I never realised how much it was actually drying out my skin until I switched to this product. Even though I have combination skin the oil in this cleanser completely melts away all of my makeup (even waterproof) and doesn’t clog my pores. The easiest way I found to u...

  45. I will never use another pre-cleanse!


    Although dermalogica can come with a hefty price tag, this oil cleanser is more than worth it! It lasts so long and you only need 1/2-1 pump of it to get a full face of makeup off. It’s so gently and nourishing even for someone with oily skin! I love the combination of this with their cleansing gel for double cleansing, it’s cleans without stripping the skin
  46. Fave


    My favourite facial cleanser. This oil smells divine the scent gets me every time.
  47. Fabulous!!


    I paired this product with the dermalogica special cleansing gel and it was a fabulous match for double cleansing! Doesn’t strip your skin and is great at removing make up residue!

    Only downside is the amount of product loss from the faulty pump, i got around this by transferring it into a another bottle but it’s annoying for the price unfortunately!
  48. incredible


    I love to use this before bed. I love using this during winter as it stops my skin from appearing flaky!
  49. Magical!


    My friend moved overseas and gave me this. I tried and OMG! It smells divine and makes me want to keep doing it again and again! Impressed!
  50. amazing at removing makeup and cleansing skin


    Repurchased the Dermalogica Precleanse a few times and I can say with confidence that this is the best precleanse currently on the market. The product is divine, the smell isn't overpowering and the consistency is thin, which is what I prefer when it comes to buying precleanses, and most of all, it does the job well! It removes all of make-up and any grim that's built up during the day. However, I...

  51. Love it


    I have so far been given samples of this product and I love it. It feels so nice to use, gets rid of all my makeup gently and my face feels smooth after (I still cleanse after it) but the product is a winner. It is now on my wishlist for when I can buy more.
  52. Love it


    Received as a sample and have now purchased. I like the consistency and find that it does a really good clean. Doesn’t irritate or make my skin oily. Very happy with this product
  53. LOVE


    buying this again now its a must have!! Sooo worth the money!
  54. Great


    Melts away makeup instantly, great first step in a double cleanse.
  55. Great to break down makeup


    I recently started double cleansing, using an oil cleanser first to break down all my makeup. This cleanser has a pleasant smell and does not leave the skin feeling oily or tacky.
  56. My Favourite!


    Ive suffered from really bad skin for as long as I can remember. I use to use Proactive and it completely messed up my skin. On the surface it looked 'ok' but close up there was A LOT of bumps and pimples under my skin. It was gross :(

    Anyway, I was recommended this PreCleanser from the Dermalogica store at my local shopping centre along with other products. After about 2 weeks of us...

  58. Great, but expensive for what it is.


    To be completely honest, I would be lying if I did say that this is a beautiful product that when used before a foaming cleanser, melts away impurities extremely well. BUT, its so expensive for what it is and I think the 'pre-cleanse' is a bit of a gimmick to make it seem like its not the same as every other cleansing oil (some of the best Korean Beauty cleansing oils/balms are $25 and almost the ...

    I used to just use Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel then tone/moisturise. Precleanse has taken my skincare to a whole new level and works incredibly well with other DL products. Very impressed and worth the $$!
  60. A must for removing makeup


    I always use this before my cleanser when I've been wearing makeup. It makes my skin feel so clean and removes every bit of makeup
  61. An essential product in your beauty routine


    An amazing product that removes oil, makeup and dirt prior to using your cleanser. I have oily skin and was worried it would make my skin more oily but it has not. Great product that melts into your skin
  62. Removes makeup like a dream


    Great product as step 1 in a double cleanse. Removes makeup easily without being greasy or heavy. I use cream cleanser after this. Pump applicator makes it easy and hygienic
  63. Loved it.


    I have used this precleanse for years. I have acne prone skin and was hesitant to use an oil based product but this does not aggravate my skin in any way and is great at washing off my sunscreen at the end of each day. I find that when I use this before my cleanser that my cleanser is more effective. One bottle lasts a while for me as well so it’s not like I’m constantly re-purchasing.
  64. amazing


    love this product to remove my heavy makeup prior to cleansing, feels really nourishing and moisturizing on the skin
  65. Awesome


    really amazing product to get my makeup off, doesn't strip my skin of natural oils and hydrates really well, takes off heavy eye makeup off well
  66. Great cleanse


    I have a dry skin type and in the past have used wipes to clean my make up. This is a great non drying alternative. Using as a part of a two step cleanse I'm loving it. I'm not a huge fan of the smell.
  67. Love the smell!


    I have combination oily skin and this is great to make sure all the make up is off before a cleanse; plus the smell! Super citrusy and fresh!
  68. Amazing product


    I’ve been using this almost since it came out and I can’t recommend it highly enough. It does an amazing job at gently melting and removing even the toughest of makeup. I had my daughter, who’s got acne prone skin try it and it worked wonders, turned her complexion completely around. Will continue to use this forever!
  69. Gentle and effective


    I have been using PreCleanse for years now and absolutely love it!
    I have quiet oily but reactive skin and needed something that is gentle but works.
    PreCleanse does everything it promises and removes all trace of makeup and sunscreen without stripping your face. It is a staple in my shower and the bottle lasts ages as you only need a small amount.

    I gotta wear lots of makeup to work and I my skin would die without this product. It’s the best first step to my nighttime routine. It’s removes every last inch of makeup but I always follow with a cleanser for an extra good cleanse on my Clarisonic.
  72. Perfection. Love it!


    I love dermalogica, it’s my go to skin care choice. It’s cruelty free whilst delivering salon results which is often difficult to find. This product is great particularly if you are prone to drier skin through winter like myself. I use this as sole cleanser of a morning as advised by my beautician and it provides a perfectly cleansed but hydrated base. It has a delicate citrusy scent and forms a n...

  74. Removes makeup & the day from the face!


    I was finding some cleansers would not remove all my makeup, I came across pre-cleanse and it is perfect. It removes the day from my face, so I can ensure a proper cleanse.
  75. Gentle


    Love how this helps me get off my sunscreen at the end of the day! Doesn't feel too greasy/ drying - perfect for a gentle cleanse. It comes in this great value for money size too
  76. Great for waterproof makeup!


    I’m very happy with the pre cleanse. Very helpful in getting stubborn waterproof mascara off. I don’t mind the orange scent at all
  77. love this


    I suffer from dry skin and this product keeps my skin very hydrated! would recommend this to anyone! Removes make up extremely well, I was quite impressed!
  78. The best make up remover


    Ive tried banila co clean it zero, chinoshio natural pore cleansing oil, eve lom cleanser etc and this is by far the best value for money (i think adorebeauty has the best sales/deals for dermalogica products). Best make up remover ever, but always make sure to use a 2nd cleanser after
  79. not for sensitive skin


    i used this product for about 2 weeks then had to stop, my face had developed a red bump rash. not for my sensitive skin
  80. Its alright


    This one has a really strong unpleasant scent. Its smells like oranges that's gone bad but also really fake. Apart from that it does a decent job of removing my sunscreen/makeup but I wouldn't repurchase it. Also you have to really work at it for a minute before the oil warms up to your skin do the job. Sometimes when the water isn't warm enough it feels like there's a film of oil on my face when ...

  81. Best pre cleanse


    I’ve tried a few different brand pre cleansers and I find that I’m the most happiest with this one. I have definitely converted back to dermalogica pre cleanser
  82. Ticks every box!


    I received a sample of this PreCleanse with my last order! Worked a treat! Dissolved all of the make up and my sunscreen and did not dry out my skin or leave a film on my face! I will be investing in the full size bottle of this product! :)
  83. Best pre-cleanser


    I've been using Clinique's Take The Day off for a long time now, which in itself is a fantastic product, but this has now taken its place in my life - I love the consistency, the smell and it really removes nearly every trace of make up (depending how much I have on) leaving your face fresh and ready for it's cleanse!
    I love it and will continue to purchase
  84. Amazing product!


    First time I've ever used a precleanser and I'm so glad I made the decision to do so. I have oily skin and was sceptical about putting more oil on my face but it really has worked wonders and removes my makeup without an issue. Will definitely grab it again!
  85. It’s a nice oil cleanser


    I think it’s great for a double cleanser routine, removes all makeup, including waterproof products and sunscreen, with ease. But I did find that it can sting my eyes, but that being said, I’ve never found an oil cleanser that doesn’t sting my eyes so I’ve slightly gotten used to it and try not to open my eyes while using it haha
  86. Perfect Oil cleanser to the double cleanse routine


    I was introduced to the concept of double cleansing over 10 years ago and was recommended the Dermalogica Precleanse. Every now and again I pick up something new to try, but just keep going back to this as my first step of my daily face cleanser.

  88. Good first cleanser


    This is a really good first cleanse to remove makeup or just sunscren. It’s nothing super exciting but it does the job effectively and doesn’t irritate the eyes.
  89. Great for 2 step cleansing


    This is a great oil based product for a 2 step cleansing/deep cleansing routine. You use it by putting 1 pump on your hand and rubbing this oil on your face.

    It smells amazing (like lavender) and really removes make up well, especially stubborn waterproof mascara.

    After washing it off from your face, there isn't an oily residue feeling, which you might get from using co...

  90. Really nice


    Purchased this product after reading a review on double cleansing with an oil based product especially after wearing makeup. Found it does remove all makeup really well and leaves skin feeling fresh and not too tight nor dry.
  91. Gentle, yet effective cleanser


    Skin type: Oily
    Main skin concern: Oily T-zone

    If you're looking for a cleanser that removes all traces of makeup whilst hydrating and nourishing your face, then you NEED to get this! Not only does it smell great but it works so well to thoroughly clean my face! Whenever I stock up on this, I have to hide it from my sister who always tried to take it from me -_-
  92. Effectively removes all makeup, excellent cleanser


    This cleansing oil is brilliant. It takes off makeup, especially eye and lip makeup so very well. I just apply the oil on a round swisspers cotton pad and the makeup and face is so easily cleansed. It doesn't leave an oily residue, doesn't sting the eyes and doesn't cause dryness. It is fine to use on combination and acne prone skin and has not led to breakout on my skin after usage.
  93. Amazing


    I have combination/oily skin and am wearing full coverage make up every day.
    This product is amazing when it comes to taking off every trace of make up and oils that are on my face.
    PreCleanse helps clear off all the nasties so when I use my cleansers afterwards, they’re able to actually get deeper and cleanse my skin properly.
  94. Amazing makeup remover


    This product dissolves all my makeup. I have combination (and sometimes sensitive) skin, I find this oil formula perfect, it's moisturizing without causing any breakouts.
  95. Moisturising, cleansing product!


    This product is amazing at ensuring your skin is super cleansed even before you use your normal cleanser. I have quite dry skin, and this helps to add moisture into my skin right before cleansing. It’s awesome at removing heavy makeup and is much more environmentally friendly compared to face wipes!
  96. First step in my cleansing routine


    I've tried multiple products for double cleansing, but this one remains my favourite, I keep coming back to it. It seems expensive for 150 ml, but I find a little goes a long way.
  97. Good


    This is actually quite good. It is really good to break down makeup and I thought it did a good job! I don’t use it all the time because I think it breaks me out a little bit but other than that it’s good!
  98. Sunscreen and heavy makeup be gone


    This helps to dissolve sunscreen and heavy makeup before following with a cleanser. If I can be bothered I like to wipe off the remaining oil that didn’t rinse off with a warm face washer before cleansing. I use it on eyes as well with no problem. I have only tried one other cleansing oil and found them to be pretty similar.
  99. Permanently apart of my skincare routine!


    When I first received this I was surprised how oily it felt but once you use and wash it off, your face instantly feels great. Not oily whatsoever. I love the smell, it’s instantly refreshing. It also lasts a really long time. A little really does go a long way.
