I am obsessed with makeup and strangely enough, I seem to enjoy taking it off nearly as much as I enjoy putting it on! There’s nothing like applying makeup to happy skin and a good routine always starts with effective cleansing. Double cleansing is huge in beauty and if you do it right, it can reap the rewards when it comes to how your skin looks. This new product, the Dermalogica PreCleanse Balm is the new Step Zero in your skincare regime.

Why Pre Cleanse?
If cleansing is your thing, you are going to love this stuff. Dermalogica have carried out research that indicates that apparently over half of us find traces of makeup on our pillow cases, even after cleansing. In response to this, they have come up with a new product that cuts through build up in just one application. It promises to gather grime like a magnet and ensures you have the cleanest, healthiest skin.
I love the idea that this is Step Zero in your routine. Before you think about actually cleansing the skin, you do this. This new step makes quick work of dirt, product build up and all kinds of long wear makeup and mascara, so that you can be sure that all the gunk is gone so you can properly clean your skin.
Dermalogica PreCleanse Balm – How To
You only need a little blob of the Dermalogica PreCleanse Balm which you pop on to the special mitt. You then swipe it all over a dry face and then start to massage to loosen up everything that needs to go.
You just need to spend about 60 seconds with the mitt, which feels so good on the skin. Next you wet your palms and emulsify the balm, and then rinse away.
After this, you just need to use your favourite cleanser to be able to properly deep clean your complexion, and your skin will totally love you for it!
When I use the Dermalogica PreCleanse Balm as my first step, it means I have less work to do with my cleanser. My skin is left, soft, smooth, clean and glowing. It basically means you can use any cleanser you like, and be sure that your skin is free from grime and makeup. Love it! The bonus is that you only need a little blob each time so the tube will last ages.
