Love it: Dermalogica PreCleanse Wipes


I have long been a fan of Dermalogica’s very user friendly PreCleanse, especially when I’ve had a night of it in heavy-ish makeup and just want to get clean fast. A plant based cleansing oil that gently liquefies sebum (oil) and other oil-based debris from the skin’s surface, it is designed to give you a professional clean each night before your usual regime, and a very gentle one at that.
Research by The International Dermal Institute has revealed that women typically spend approximately only three seconds washing their faces, even at the end of the day. In light of the development of long wearing, high performance sunscreens and 24-hour cosmetics, this means that most women unknowingly leave goopy product residue on their skin. This residue may cause acneic outbreaks, the formation of milia (tiny inclusions, which feel like grains of sand beneath the epidermis), and other long-term skin issues. This means if you want clear skin them double cleansing at night is a must, and PreCleanse is a winner in my books.
I’m a huge fan of cleansing oils to keep skin’s natural ph in balance in general, and have used a fair few in my time. PreCleanse goes a step further than most though, as by adding water, the product and any other oil-based debris is readily rinsed away without leaving behind any greasy residue. Magic!
So I was pretty damn excited to hear that the PreCleanse in liquid form is now available in packs of convenient biodegradable wipes, making cleansing your skin while travelling or on-the-go even easier. The new PreCleanse Wipes contain Aloe and Apricot Kernel Oil that attract sebum and instantly dissolve even the most stubborn mascara, waterproof lip stains and sunscreens. The formula, which also contains Apple Amino Acids, gently loosens surface debris, such as industrial pollutants. By melting away these deposits on the skin, cleansers and other products may then work more effectively. 
The product also smoothes, calms, and nourishes skin and in terms of being an extra step, is about as low maintenance as it gets. A few wipes over before your usual cleansing routine and boom - a great base for receiving the rest of your regime.
PreCleanse Wipes come in a handy travel pouch containing 20 pre-moistened towelettes with an RRP of $27.50 and are available now.
