How It Works: The Dermalogica Precleanse

Molly Carroll


At the end of the day, we all have our nightly ritual of removing our makeup, cleansing our face and getting ready for a good night’s sleep. More often than not, the eye makeup remover we use pulls and tugs at our sensitive eye area, causing dryness and redness around the eyes and the cleanser we use leaves traces of makeup behind, resulting in clogged pores and acne.

Lucky for you, we’ve come across a lovely product that will add some luxury into your nightly routine and help make sure those sensitive eyes and clogged pores are a thing of the past. Introducing Dermalogica’s Precleanse. This deep-cleansing oil melts away makeup and impurities from the skin, leaving you with clean, nourished skin ready to be cleansed.
