The Dermalogica Double Cleanse Duo

I think this is not only a great way to try out the products, but will also make a lovely gift for the beauty obsessed.

Dermalogica Pre Cleanse Balm + Special Cleansing Gel Review


Double cleansing is a concept that is increasing in popularity. Double cleansing involves first using a cleansing oil, balm or micellar water to break down make-up, SPF and sebum on the surface of your skin. Then following it with a foaming cleanser for a deeper clean, to remove impurities from pores and keep skin clearer and smoother.

Step 1: Dermalogica Pre cleanse Balm Review

The first step in the duo is the Pre cleanse Balm. I use a fingertip-sized amount of the Balm, apply it on my dry face and massage it well. Then I wash the product with warm water. This is a water-activated balm-to-oil cleanser. It takes off every bit of makeup (even waterproof) and deconstructs layers of excess oil. It really leaves the skin feels nourished and soft, thanks to the Apricot Kernel Oil and Biolipid Complex it contains.

Step 2:  Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel Review

For the second step of the duo I use a pea-sized amount of the Cleansing Gel and massage this all over my face, before washing off with warm water. This is a soap free foaming gel cleanser. It contains Balm Mint and Lavender, so feels really soothing and cooling on the skin.

Dermalogica Double Cleansing Duo MY CONCLUSION:

I have used the Dermalogica Double Cleanse Duo for 2 weeks every day. After using my skin always feels really soft, refined and nourished. It clears up oil without ever leaving the skin feeling tight or dry. I have also noticed my skin gets much less oily and shiny throughout the day. I have not had any breakouts since using and I am sure this is due to the really deep cleanse you get when using these products in conjunction.
