We have a love/hate relationship with our cleansing oils. We love how effectively they remove dirt and makeup from our skin, and how soft and hydrated our faces feel after using them, but we hate having to lug them around whenever we're on the go. There's nothing like opening your gym bag to find your sports bra covered in greasy golden liquid again.
Leave it to Dermalogica, the makers of one our fave cleansing oils, to solve this particular conundrum. Next month, the brand will release a wipes version of its cult-classic Precleanse. We'll let that sink in for a moment. There are now cleansing oils in wipe form. Cue Charlie Brown happy dancing.
The wipes are biodegradable and infused with Precleanse. For those not familiar with this amazing product, you use it before your cleanser to help get rid of the tough-to-remove stuff that your normal cleanser may not be able to handle on its own: excess sebum, sunscreen, waterproof makeup, and residual product build-up.
We've hoarded the tiny sample-size bottles of Precleanse we get at beauty counters to take with us on our travels, so devoted are we to our daily ritual of double-cleansing. We've even toted full bottles onto planes — triple wrapped in plastic baggies to protect our stuff from the inevitable mid-flight, oil explosion in our bags. So, to say we're excited by this is an understatement. This unlocks so many portable possibilities for us.
Dermalogica Precleanse Wipes, $18, available in December at Dermalogica.
