not my favourite - 27-03-2018 by

I was in love the dermalogica precleanse oil and tried to give this balm a try. I have tried other balms like the clinque take the day off. Double cleansing is a must for me as I wear quite heavy makeup. I found the instructions on the box quite fustrating. It directs you to put the balm straaight on the mitt provided and massage onto dry skin.The balm ended up getting stuck in the bristle crevices and wasn't transferring onto my face at all. I felt the mitt was a bit rouch considering my face was dry. I have tried not using the mitt and massaging the product onto my dry face then activating it with water. However I struggled to wash the product off it just felt like there was a film of balm on my face. I had to use a towel to wipe it. the only way I can get this product to kind of work for me is by activating the balm before putting it onto my face. However I might as well have purchased the precleanse oil. on a positive note I do think this product is pretty when you are travelling.

Great product - 27-03-2018 by

This product does exactly what it says it will, it is something I will always use in my skincare routine at the end of the day. I have used the pre cleanse oil from Dermalogica before, I honestly love both products equally and would recommend both, they work towards the same desired outcome. If I was to choose one it would be this one as I like that it comes with the silicone cleansing mitt, at the same time you pay more money for less product than the oil cleanser so I'm considering buying the pre cleanse oil next and using the silicone mitt I got when I bought this.

The best makeup remover I have ever used - 20-02-2018 by

Normally wipes and micellar waters make me feel as though I am tugging at my skin even with a light hand. I had tried the precleanse oil front Dermalogica and still felt as though I was constantly tugging at my skin to get makeup off. If you're deciding between this and the Precleanse Oil, I recommend going with this. The Precleanse Balm is 100x better and leaves your skin feeling hydrated and smooth. It gets the job done so much better.

Indulgent night cleanse - 06-02-2018 by

I Love both Dermalogica's Oil and Balm Pre-Cleanse. This one is super thick and indulgent, though once warmed up on the face, has a similar slip to the oil version. I find this one even more hydrating for the skin. Removes all makeup and leaves skin feeling plump and wonderful.

I'm in love! - 06-02-2018 by

I received PreCleanse Balm as a sample and trying it was like discovering something amazing! I've used PreCleanse before and liked it, but rotated it with other products. The balm however I have repurchased twice now.

PreCleanse Balm shifts everything! I wasn't originally convinced by the accompanying glove but am now a total convert. The balm + glove combination is a super gentle way to remove makeup, including my mascara for which I'd been previously using a dedicated makeup remover as nothing else would shift it.

After PreCleanse Balm my skin feels clean and soft and ready for any further cleansing/masks etc.

The best! - 23-01-2018 by

I love this cleansing balm. It is the best balm at removing makeup. Love that it comes in a travel friendly tube and also with a cleansing mitt. I can't recommend this product enough.

This bad boy works! - 23-01-2018 by

I love the whole idea of this product. It takes away all traces of make up, and leaves your skin with a film like layer. Then the magic happens when you add water and it turns into an emulsion and washes off with ease. This tube has lasted forever. My skin feels super super after using it, even after exfoliating.

The BEST - 13-11-2017 by

This is the best cleanser I've used, better than micellar water, wipes, and other cleansing balms (including the clinique cleansing balm).

It is amazing at whisking all makeup off, including eye makeup and sunscreen, and the little mitt it comes with is absolutely lovely to use.

The balm itself smells beautiful, like an expensive spa product, and my skin feels so soft and nourished after using it. It has completely cleared up a dry patch on my eyebrow.

For reference, my skin is 36, combination and sensitive.

Very happy, would purchase again - 05-11-2017 by

I have been using the PreCleanse Balm for 2 weeks now. So happy to have found this precleanser balm - it has made removing my makeup at the end of the day so much easier and really gets everything off before I cleanse.

The mitt is very handy to get makeup out of the spots that might normally need a bit of extra scrubbing (side of nose, eye lids, etc) without using any additional pressure.

Very happy with this product!

Exciting New Product - 04-10-2017 by

As a lover the PreCleanse, I was excited to try this. I travel frequently and the packaging of this is ideal for travel.

I think it is a bit richer than the PreCleanse, but it is very effective and removes or I should say melts away even the heaviest makeup.

I love the mitt which comes with it,, and thinks its great each new tube will have a new mitt.

Awesome product, and will now stay in my regime as one of my staples

Wow - 04-10-2017 by

Wow, I'm really love this product. It's a pre cleanse, but I find it cleansing enough on its own. I love rich hydrating cleansers, so this is perfect for my skin. the little massage cleansing tool that comes in the box is an absolutely gem! This gooey balm really works a treat and feels incredible on the skin. Winner.

You need this in your life! - 18-09-2017 by

By far the most amazing cleanser around without a doubt! Texture is like when you leave your lip balm in the sun and it begins to soften. You only need a small amount and it just glides over the skin lovely, you don't need to apply pressure not even when your trying to remove mascara.
Removes all makeup with such ease that you wouldn't even need to follow up with another cleanser for that double cleanse feel and benefit.
After removing with a damp cloth your skin not only looks amazing but feels amazing too. No tightness or oilyness that other cleansers tend to make your skin feel.
Highly recommend

Removes all makeup! - 15-09-2017 by

I have been using cleansing balms for the past year as they are better for sensitive/ dehydrated skin.
This one really works to remove all traces of make up in one wash without leaving any residue as long as you use a face cloth.
Highly recommended!

Removes makeup gently but effectively! - 12-09-2017 by

I have used Dermalogica PreCleanse for a long time as it is one of the only products that removes my makeup without leaving my skin red and irritated. I love love love this PreCleanse Balm as it provides the same gentle removal power without leaving my skin feeling oily. I enjoy using this every night before my Dermalogica Cleanser for super soft and clean skin!

Best Cleansing Balm Ever! - 12-09-2017 by

I like this better than the any other make up remover balm I've ever used! Only need a small amount to rub it between my fingers and massage my face for less than a minute and it's ready to be wiped off! Not as waxy as the some of the others and needs less waiting time to remove eye make up, melts really well. Suits my sometimes-dry skin.

Melts everything off - even waterproof mascara! - 11-09-2017 by

I love this as the first step in my cleansing routine. I always double cleanse and usually use an oil first, but I dislike how messy these can get and sometimes they leave behind a oily residue on my skin. I love that this was a balm, it was super easy to use and it completely melted off all of my makeup - even waterproof mascara. If I was short on time I could definitely use this alone and either take it off with a cloth or follow with a micellar water and be confident my skin would be squeaky clean!
