So, our first essentials perfect for any holidays or festivals you have planned this summer would be Dermalogica’s 15ml precleanse balm with applicator. This handy balm has a nourishing formula that cuts through make-up, sunscreen and oil- based debris. This affordable mini is a highly rated product which you can rely on to clean your skin.
