Introducing PreCleanse Balm; the perfect companion for healthy, glowing skin

It’s been four hard days of trying to keep quiet Barnies, but finally we can reveal all; Dermalogica’s latest innovation is the PreCleanse Balm!

We had a sneak preview of the balm on Monday and we’ve all fallen in love with it.

Ever wake up in the morning to find last night’s ‘look’ smeared across your pillow? You’re not the only one. According to Dermalogica, more than half of us ladies (54%) will see make-up all over their bedding because they simply haven’t cleansed properly.

Luckily, you now have the PreCleanse balm, so no more excuses!

What does it do?

PreCleanse Balm cuts through buildup in just one application. The oil-based formula gathers grime like a magnet, so long-wear lipsticks, waterproof mascara, sunscreen and pollutants don't stand a chance!

Ideal for all skin types, especially dry, the PreCleanse Balm appears solid at first, but transforms on application into a rich, skin-conditioning oil, that melts through build-up easily without stripping the skin’s protective barrier, clogging pores or causing irritation.

It’s a water-activated, balm-to-oil version of the top-selling oil cleanser PreCleanse. It deconstructs layers of excess sebum (oil) waterproof makeup, pollution and residual product build-up on skin.

Cleansing mitt

It comes with a clever little double-sided, ergonomically-designed mitt, for enhanced cleansing and exfoliation to leave skin super clean. It thoroughly cleanses any debris from your skin’s surface, allowing your recommended cleanser to get to work and deliver better results!

On first sight you might think the mitt looks too rigid or tough, but it’s surprisingly smooth and comfortable on the skin. It fits over the tube to dry and store too - we love the design!


The balm is more travel friendly than its companion PreCleanse as it’s a solid form!

What’s in it?

Lots of lovely ingredients; apricot kernel oil to tone, firm and balance moisture; citrus and lavender essential oils to relieve mental and physical fatigue and energise skin tissues; and a natural biolipid complex to help reinforce the skin’s barrier function and preserve hydration.

How to use

Apply - work dry - emulsify! (We learnt that on Monday!) Put an almond-sized amount onto the mitt (or directly to your hand if you prefer) and massage into dry skin using circular motions. Add water to emulsify, then rinse and follow with your cleanser. So simple but super effective.

Available from The Barn Thursday 7 September.
