PreCleanse Balm ($45; dermalogica.com) is new from Dermalogica, a thick cleansing balm/makeup remover that is the first step in any double cleanse skin cleansing regime. This is a balm to oil cleanser, quite dense in texture and melts upon massing. It also comes with a silicone cleansing mitt that helps get rid of everything, Since this is a thicker balm, it does take a bit of massaging action for it to break down into an oily consistency. While I do like the cleansing mitt that comes with it, I also like to pair this with a good old warm washcloth for a deeper clean. It does get rid of everything, even waterproof and needs a good second cleanser to wash off the residue it leaves behind since it is oil based. I do wish the balm came packaged in a tub though since it can be a bit difficult to get out of the squeeze tube. That apart, its a great pre cleanse balm and one I’d recommend for anyone with combination-dry skin.
