Dermalogica Cleansing Routine

June 24, 2007


I think you all know by now that I’ve got a mild OCD about cleansing my skin.

Dermalogica Precleanse is an oil that you use before your normal cleanser. You just rub it in with dry hands (on your dry face) and concentrate on areas where are more congested (for me, it’s the sides of the nose and the cheek area). Then, you add some water to emulsify it and massage it in some more. Wash off and then follow with a cleanser. When I got the Dermalogica Prescription Facial the other day, the beauty therapist used this, and it really does make a difference! I like how much less congested my skin feels, and it feels like my cleanser is working much better too.

Dermalogica Cleansing Gel is a basic wash for all skin types. What I love about this is that it doesn’t break me out, it cleans without being too harsh or drying, and really calms the skin! As I use this in conjunction with the Precleanse, it has made my skin clean and smooth and without any of those annoying bumps and zits.

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant is the new product that I am obliged to recommend to anyone and everyone. It’s rice-based and has got Papain (enzyme found in Papaya, which is yummy!), Rice Enzymes and Salicylic Acid to smooth the skin and accelerate cell renewal. I read that it’s also got the Skin Brightening Complex that has Blackberry, Aspergillus, Grapefruit and Licorice to help balance uneven skin pigmentation. It’s not irritating at all, and you can use it daily. Having used this in the evening, I’ve found that my night treatments work a lot better, and my skin’s got a fantastic, healthy glow to it.

Yes, I use these 3 products in the evening consecutively, and is part of my new routine. I shall post my new evening routine up soon – streamlined and more focused!

P.S Feel free to leave comments! =)



  1. I swear by Dermalogica and really love the Daily Microfoliant(which I tend to use at night too along with the Medicated Clearing Gel). I have quite congested skin so have found that the Antibac face wash (which I use in the morning) along with my evening routine has completely transformed the look and texture of my skin. I have wondered about PreCleanse and I think after reading your write up I’ll give it a go.

    If anyone is looking for pretty good prices on Derm. stuff I have found this site:
