Dermalogica is a brand that is fairly new to me. A couple of months ago, I received a sample of their Microexfoliant in my Birchbox and LOVED it. It’s a powder that you blend with water to form a paste, and rub on your face and rinse off. It doesn’t feel like it’s doing anything, but your face feels so so smooth afterwords, and it’s made with all natural ingredients. It’s not the cheapest in the world, but you only need to use a tiny bit, so the container lasts a really really long time.
A few weeks later, I saw Dermalogica Precleanse on the Kathy and Hoda hour of the Today Show as one of their “favorite things”. I’m not a huge fan of Kathy and Hoda, or their hour (I can’t even say I’m in support of Winesday, sorry), but since I loved my other Dermalogica product so much, I thought I’d try it.
PreCleanse is an oil that you rub on your face to remove your make up. You dampen your face, rub a dime sized drop of oil all over, and rinse it off. I was a little skeptical, because I have tried almost all the make up removers out there, and am generally a fan of remover wipes. I wear a lot of make up, especially on my eyes, and wasn’t so sure a little bit of oil could take care of business.
Well. This stuff is basically magic. I just smear it in real good, especially around my eyes. At first it looks a little scary because you can see your make up rubbing around your face like crazy. But when you rinse it off…it’s all gone!! Seriously the best make up remover I have ever used. It doesn’t leave my eyes stinging like some of the wipes do, and my face feels nice and soft afterwards. It has a fresh lemony scent too.
Once again, this stuff isn’t the cheapest, but it lasts so long that you end up saving money. I was going through a pack of wipes every two weeks or so, so this is a much better alternative for me.
Give it a whirl…trust me, it’s the best!!!
What make up removers do you use and do they work for you? I’m always open to new suggestions.
