Dermalogica – PreCleanse Balm with Cleansing Mitt – PR


The best balm cleanser I have ever used – my makeup melted away!

I was very lucky to receive these products from Dermalogica for me to review for my followers – Please note I received this product complimentary!

This is a deep cleansing precleanser which turns from balm-to-oil which quickly, and superbly removes impurities and makeup – including my waterproof mascara! With this product you also get a silicon cleansing mitt which uses the same exfoliating style as my Foreo cleansing brush without the sonic vibrations.


The balm is water activated and melts to a smooth oil which deconstructs layers of sebum, environmental pollutants and residual product buildup on skin, whist the natural Biolipid complex locks in hydration and reinforces the skin barrier while apricot kernel oil helps nourish the skin!

It really did melt away all of my makeup making my pre-bed routine quicker as I didn’t have to take ages removing my makeup before I could take care of my skin. I found that the oil was easy to remove with the mitt and a bit of warm water. It also didn’t leave my skin dry but instead nourished. I was really impressed when my makeup just melted away without having to use micellar water to remove it first.

Bottom Line: This balm will dissolve and remove even waterproof makeup in a quicky!

This is an amazing cleansing balm that helps unclogs the pores but not strip away your skin!

I managed to get this in my Love Me Beauty Box last month, and have fallen in love with it.

It’s a deep cleansing balm that lifts and clears your pores, and a little goes a long way. I tend to use the size of a pea to cleanse my whole face. One of the things I love about it it that its not an exfoliator, so its good for dry skin and it actually moisturises rather than strips.

I have dry/combo skin and it’s always soothed my dry skin without making it worse – which makes it an instant keeper. The only downside for this cleanser is that sometimes it can be a bit gritty due to the mud element and sometimes leaves a slight oily film – but nothing a toner can’t get rid of!

It’s now a staple in my skin care routine!

Bottom Line: A tad bit pricey, but does last a long while and has amazing results – once you get over the occasional gritty bit.

Price: £48 on Cult Beauty
