Last week we were lucky enough to be invited to the Dermalogica flagship store in London. We had a great afternoon learning all about the latest products and what works best for your skin. The one product we left totally obsessed with the is the Pre Cleanse Balm! There is literally nothing this miracle product can’t remove, mascara, foundation, sunscreen, lipstick, make-up, impurities, the list goes on. Plus it comes with a cute double sided cleanse mitt for even better results.


So a bit more info about this fab product:

The average person only spends 20 seconds cleansing their skin with standard face washes or make up removal wipes. No where enough to penetrate the layers of excess sebum (oil), make up, pollutants and grime that builds up throughout the day. When not fully removed, those impurities can dull your skin and prevent your skincare from doing its job. Enter PreCleanse Balm‘

This refreshing, water activated, balm to oil formula melts away impurities for a deeper clean than cleanser alone. Natural lightweight oils inside deconstruct the residue on the top of your skin, allowing you to wash it away more easily.

For those of your who are familiar with Dermalogica skincare products you may have a few questions about introducing the PreCleanse Balm into your routine. Here’s the most frequently asked questions:

Gently dissolve and remove built up residue and make up.
Smooth, condition and nourish skin without clogging pores.
Enable your cleanser and other skin care products to work even better.
