PreCleanse Vs PreCleanse Balm

Brand new Dermalogica PreCleanse Balm is coming this month and we were lucky enough to get some trial sizes. We just LOVE it. We are already getting questions about the difference between PreCleanse and PreCleanse Balm. Precleansing is a concept that Dermalogica swear by for the perfect start to your skin care routine. They recommend to use a Precleanser first to remove any excess sebum(oil), makeup or pollutants from the surface of the skin, then use a Dermalogica Prescribed Cleanser for a deeper skin cleanse and to combat your skins key issues (eg. Ultracalming Cleanser is used to combat redness and sensitivity on the skin)

Here are some of the key differences.

  PreCleanse Balm

PreCleanse Balm is more suited to a Normal to Dry skin type.

It is perfect for traveling because the squeezy tube is less likely to leak.

It is a balm to oil consistency that emulsifies with water.

It includes a FREE Cleansing Mitt.


PreCleanse is a lightweight liquid oil.

It is more suitable for a Normal to Oily skin type.

It has a handy pump action top thats easy to use.

It is one of Dermalogica’s bestselling products.
