The first time we saw Dermalogica’s PreCleanse
, we thought “Huh? Isn’t regular cleanser enough?” Well, we were wrong, evidently. Sometimes, even with a good cleanser, makeup, oil and environmental debris stay engrained in your pores, and an oil-based product like PreCleanse
removes all the excess gunk and, believe it or not, oil. Oil removing oil? Yes, you read correctly.
We squirted about a quarter size amount of the product on our hands and massaged it onto our dry, heavily made-up face, complete with waterproof mascara. We worked it in for about a minute, focusing on our eyes and cheeks, and than added a little warm water to the mix to create a milky consistency that washes right off - and takes all the bad stuff with it.
Following with our normal cleanser, even with our oily skin and caked-on makeup from a night out, our cotton round with toner came out clean, and our skin was soft, with no trace of excess oil.
