A few weeks ago I received the Dermalogica PreCleanse Oil and Wipes from iFabbo to test out, in short I don't like them.
The PreCleanse Oil and Wipes are supposed to allow you to achieve clean and healthy skin with the DoubleCleanse regimen, which to me means you are going to have to use two products to clean your face. The wipes are biodegradable and are supposed to melt way layers of excess sebum, sunscreen, waterproof makeup, pollutants and other products. Both the wipes and the oil are formulated with skin softening aloe and apricot oils, condition rice brand and Vitamin E, without artificial fragrances, colors or parabens. Both products are also safe to use around the eye area to remove waterproof makeup. Some benefits of these products are that they remove oils without clogging pores, conditioning fatty acids nourish skin and enables your prescribed Dermalogica Cleanser to work more efficiently.
To use the wipes you wipe it over your face and eyes to dissolve surface dirt and oil. Add water if you wish to create a milky emulsion and rinse with lukewarm water, the follow up with your prescribed Dermalogica cleanser for professional cleansing results.
For the oil you dispense oil into dry hands, massage over dry face and eyes to dissolve oil and dirt, wet hands and continue massaging to create a milky emulsion. Rinse with lukewarm water. Follow with prescribed Dermalogica cleanser for professional cleansing results.
For me both these products have an odd smell, at first you can smell sort of a citrusy scent, then once I began applying the products to my skin, they began to smell like some kind of chemicals, reminded me of kerosene. I also don't like having to use two cleansing products on my face, I would rather use one cleanser, a toner and some moisturizer.
I did not like these products at all as I stated above, the smell was bad, I didn't feel like it cleanse my face that well and they caused me to break out, and I almost never have breakouts. Once my face broke out I discontinued using these products, since I knew for sure they were the culprit.
I know everyone's skin is different and just because I had a bad experience with these, does not mean everyone will, but with that being said, this is not a product I would not recommend.
Have you tired any of the Dermalogica products? Did you have good or bad results?
