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:

I use this once daily after the Pre-Cleanse and Ultra-Calming Cleanser. It gets rid of dead-skin cells and leaves my skin feeling clean. I didn't like it at first because of the grains, but they seem to dissolve as you add more water.

    • Daily Use

    Comments about Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant:

    I use this every other day because I tend to have dry skin, but I think it could definitely be used daily. I use it in the shower after I've already removed my makeup. This has helped SO MUCH with the tiny black heads on my nose. Honestly it's the only thing that has ever worked on them. Worth every penny.

          I've been usibgv this for a year now and love it! It saved me from doing Retin-A, which is harsh. I thought I'd give this a shot based on the positive reviews I read and I'm so glad I did! By the way, I just finally had to buy my 2nd bottle after a month shy of a year and I use it every night before bed! Highly recommend!

            This is more high end but one container lasted me months so I feel it's a good value. I don't use everyday but several times a week. The powder quickly forms a paste I can use in the shower and my face feels cleaner and looks great. I'm +50 w/ sensitive skin and like how gentle this is

              I use this after cleansing, as its not supposed to be used as a face wash but a gentle exfoliant that can be used everyday. The difference is noticeable right away, leaves the face smooth and fresh, not dry at all. Whenever I run out I am in desperate need to buy more

                  I use this most days to exfoliate, as I found out finally why my skin flakes when I wear fondation, it has helped me so much, I'm willing to pay the extra price for good quality. It was recommended to me at estitision at ultra, it's not drying or irritating for me as well. Which is important as I have combination and sensitive skin.

                          Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. If your skin is not sensitive from using the Benzoyl Peroxide you may use the Daily Microfoliant a few times per week, if your skin responds well you may increase usage up to 1 time per day.

The Daily Microfoliant is gentle enough to use every day however, it is not recommended when the skin is sunburned, irritated or sensitive. How is your skin responding from the Benzoyl Peroxide? Are you sensitive from it? Please let us know so that we can further guide you.

                          Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. The Daily Microfoliant is milder form of exfoliation compared to the Superfoliant. The Microfoliant removes dulling surface debris for brighter, smoother even skin tone. The Daily Superfoliant resurfaces the skin leaving it smooth, adsorbs pollutants from deep within the pores helping to fight pollution triggers that cause aging. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

                          Thank you for your interest in Dermalogia. The Daily Superfoliant will be more effective for treating the closed comedones, it contains activated Binchotan Charcoal, which purifies the skin, helping to adsorb environmental toxins from deep within the pores.

                          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.

                          Thank you for your inquiry. We recommend that you use Daily Microfoliant, C-12 Pure Bright Serum, Pure Light SPF50 and Pure Night to brighten and even your skin tone. You may also use Charcoal Rescue masque if your skin is not too sensitive.
