Suzie did a great job reviewing Demalogica PreCleanse over here not too long ago. In fact, she did so well that I was inspired to revisit the old favorites for another spin. While Suzie and I have different skin types, we do share a love of eyeliner and I wanted to give you a perspective as it relates to dry and sensitive skin.
While wipes are getting a small backlash lately, I still think they play a good role in a nighttime routine. I try to shy away from the “lazy” approach of just using wipes lest I leave my skin striped of moisture. The PreCleanse wipes get all my makeup off my face but somehow prep for a full wash with a nourishing oil. My eyes are usually red after makeup removal but not with PreCleanse.
I definitely reach for the wipes more often but I also love the classic oil. I am trying to save the wipes for some upcoming travel. Both eliminate excess sebum, environmental pollutants and even waterproof makeup. And their formulas are water soluble so they work well with oilier skin.
To use the oil, I pour a small amount in my palm and apply onto my dry face. I rinse with water and the oil transforms into a milky cleanser. Voila skin is makeup-free and not one bit irritated or dry (but do take care to keep the oil away from the eyes – I can get some stinging so this is better suited for removing face as opposed to eye makeup).
