I feel like you don't know you need preclease until you have used it, then you can't live without it. I use this as the first step in my double cleanse, then I follow with special cleansing gel. I also use it as a makeup remover because I wear a lot of water proof mascara and it just breaks it right down so I can remove it easily with hurting my lashes, my lashes actually feel stronger from using it!

This is a seriously fantastic product. Having fairly oily skin I was at first put off by putting even more oil onto my face... But precleanse removes your makeup and any excess oil that has accumulated during the day. I wear a very heavy, waterproof foundation with dark smokey eyes usually and waterproof mascara... and I can honestly say I have never had to use this product twice as it does such a fantastic job removing my makeup the first time round. A lot of people are saying that it is pricey.. or they can remove their makeup with a product that *supposedly* removes and cleanses... but the truth is that if you look around, you can definitely get this product below the RRP and that cleaners that 'remove' your makeup a more than likely leaving residual makeup behind so you're not doing your skin any favours! Would highly recommend!

This used to be my go to make up remover (I've now been converted to Lush's Ultrabland cleanser) After reading some of the reviews on here, I think a lot of people are using it wrong, or not fully understanding its use. Its a PRE cleanse so you do need to cleanse your skin like normal afterwards (this is mainly what put me off as I was spending more money on a cleanser whereas Ultrabland removes make up and cleanses) You need to work about a 10p size piece into your dry face until its covered. Then wet your hands and rub together to form a milky emulsion. Transfer this onto your face so the precleanse goes from oily to milky on your face. Then wash it off like normal and cleanse afterwards. I really liked the citrus smell of this, it made me feel nice and fresh afterwards! It makes my skin feel moisturised due to the oil base but not greasy. It also removes allll my make up and I wear heavy eye products, but the fact I needed to cleanse afterwards wasn't a plus point for my laziness or my purse. I do like this product, as it does its job and I've never had any breakouts. But due to the price and the fact I then need to purchase another product I won't be buying it again.

I'm a licensed skin therapist who actually works with Dermalogica products along with other lines. The Pre-Cleanse is a great product but you have to know how to use it correctly. Since it's a water soluble product you can't just wipe away or rinse the product off after you massage the oil onto skin if you tend to be oily or acneic. You have to run your hands through water quickly and work up a milky consistency and wash your face. This will break down the oil so that it can be rinsed away completely. You then proceed with your normal cleanser. If your skin tends to be dry you don't want to use a cleanser that's drying with the pre-cleanse because it can dry you out. You want to use a creamy cleanser or only use pre-cleanse every other night. I have combination/oily skin. This product dries me out if I massage it in for too long so instead I just massage enough to make sure I've covered my skin and wash it off. You definitely need a moisturizer with this product. This product is supposed to be for all skin types but I find that it's better for combo/oily to acneic skin.

The product is very expensive and the bottle is not very handy. I kept trying it for a long time, but I didn't really see a big difference with it.
I will diffidently not repurchase this again because of the price and the loss of results.
I do have some other Dermalogica products that I like, but this one didn't do anything for my oily/acne-prone skin.

such an oily product but it is worth it...

This is one of my favorite things on earth. Every night I use this to remove every stitch of makeup, even over the eyes. I then follow with my cleanser and my skin is so clean balanced. Anyone who doesn't like this product, isn't using it correctly. It's amazing.

I am feeling so sick to my stomach about this...I LOVE LOVE this product, but afraid now after reading some of the reviews that this may indeed be the culprit in my out of no where acne breakouts on my cheeks. UGH! SO disappointed because this stuff is amazing! I love how it literally melts away all the makeup to prepare the face for your cleanser. I hardly EVER have residue from make up on my cotton ball after wiping my face with my Toner. I actually do know how I'm going to give it up, but I am thinking this may be the reason I've broken out.
I have never been acne prone except for that "time of the month" I would get one or two pimples and that would be it. Over the last few months both my cheeks began to break out horribly and now I'm left with acne scars. The minute one would go away, another would pop up! It was crazy! I have been eliminating a lot of products trying to find out which one may be the cause. I got rid of Mac Studio Fix, stopped using AcneFree, and now I think I'll stop the PreCleanse.
In just ONE day of not using Mac Studio Fix, and the AcneFree, my face already shows improvement. The two cysts I had on my cheeks (one on the left the other on the right) are gone down and drying up and my entire face looks like it's calmed down. I'm gonna give up the PreCleanse for a while and see...it may have been clogging more pores all along. Darn!
UPDATE: I gave up the ENTIRE Dermalogic line. Will never use again!

Couldn't live without it! It's as simple as that!

Unfortunately I am allergic to this product. Both times I've used it i've ended up with hives, one so big that it covered half my face. It seems so harsh and gritty for my sensitive skin and in general I prefer products that don't strip my skin of its natural layers etc. I can see it has great reviews so must work great for some but would recommend a patch test 24 hours before full usage just in case!
