|Dermalogica PreCleanse Wipes and PreCleanse Oil|
I have used Dermalogica skin care products before, but this was a first for experimenting with their PreCleanse Oil and Wipes for a deep, thorough removal of makeup, including the stubborn waterproof variety and sunscreen. I got the chance as a member of iFabbo to test it and share what I thought.
I did grab the PreCleanse Wipes first. They are pre-moistened but somewhat drier than some other makeup wipes that I used in the past. However, when I took this wipe to my drier, but made-up face, I discovered it melted away the cosmetics and waterproof mascara easily enough. All that was left for me to do was to pump some of my regular cleanser and rinse.
With the PreCleanse Oil, I just poured a little in the palm of my dry hands and rubbed over the makeup still on my face, including the eye area since I was wearing waterproof mascara. I let the product sit for about a minute before wetting my hands, which turns this light oil into a milky cream. To finish, I pumped out some of my water-rinsing makeup cleanser. Since I did not see any sign of my remaining waterproof mascara this time as well, I did skip the waterproof makeup remover.
Normally, I use a water-rinsing makeup cleanser, waterproof eye makeup remover before finishing with soap and water. In colder months, I do use an oil-based cleanser and tissue it instead of the water-rinsing variety before washing with soap and water. My last step to remove all last possible traces of makeup and product left behind has been with a cotton ball moistened with a toner.
This double-cleanse route for makeup removal with these products did leave the skin feeling extra soft and pampered, but as far as how much cleaner is hard to judge. The only way that you will know for sure is to try Dermalogica PreCleanse Oil and Wipes on your complexion and compare their performance.
