Dermalogica Microfoliant is a unique, rice-based enzyme powder activates upon contact with water, releasing Papain, Salicylic Acid and Rice Enzymes to smooth the skin and accelerate cell renewal. Their unique Skin Brightening Complex of Bearberry, Aspergillus, Grapefruit and Licorice helps to balance uneven skin pigmentation. Active agents derived from Rice Bran and Rice Extract help to regulate melanin production while micro-exfoliating dead cells. A super-soothing blend of Green Tea, Ginkgo and Colloidal Oatmeal calms inflammation, leaving the skin extraordinarily clear and refreshed. Gentle enough to use on a daily basis. Fragrance free. Professional recommendation advised.

How It Works:

  • Rice Bran and Rice Extract gently microfoliate skin surface to facilitate penetration of the Skin Brightening Complex.
  • Papain Enzyme and Salicylic Acid help dissolve excess surface cells.
  • Skin Brightening Complex of Licorice and Bearberry helps even skin tone.

    Comments about Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant:

    This is pricey for me but, I love it so much :) This is my favorite exfoliator because it has great ingredients in it, a gentle rice based scrubbing action, and helps remove my sunscreen. It leaves my skin soft and clean and doesn't irritate my rosacea.

          Comments about Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant:

          I use each night after cleansing my face. First, I use a gentle cleanser using my clarisonic mia 2. Second, I use a medicated cleanser on my skin for my own personal skin needs. The daily microfoliant is the third step and so far I've been using it for a little over a week every night and I absolutely LOVE it. I have sensitive skin and my skin tone has always been a bit uneven. I actually think it's kind of a fun change being able to mix the water with the powder myself and I will admit I didn't really want to spend the money on this product but even after the first use, I'm so glad I did.

                          Thank you for your inquiry. Gentle Cream Exfoliant would be a better exfolaint for your skin condition. We recommend using this masque 2-3 times a week to address your acne prone skin.
