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 product every night after removing my makeup and before using my cleanser. It has done wonders for my skin's texture. I have combination skin with my t zone being oily and the rest of my face being normal. This product helps control my oily areas without drying out the rest of my face. About a year ago I started getting cystic acne along my jaw line. I tried everything to help it, and found that this is the only product that prevents it. I stopped using this product for a few weeks to see if I could go without it, and started breaking out around the 1.5 week mark, so I immediately went and purchased another bottle. This is such an amazing product that I highly recommend anyone with acne try or anyone who has texture issues! I hope it works as well for you as it has for me!

      effective and not drying

      Comments about Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant:

      I'm not normally fond of dermalogica but I received a sample of this and it leaves my skin so soft! It's not too drying even though it contains salicylic acid in it. It really can be used daily with no irritation. I use it after a cleansing oil and I massage it in then leave it for a few minutes to do it's thing and then rinse it and I immediately feel the improvement in my skin.

        Comments about Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant:

        Growing up I have always used Clinique face product. I have noticed the fine lines, my face goes from oily to dry then back to oily. I hated that I couldn't find a product that would balance out my face.
        I was advised to try Dermologic and that you could mix and match. I LOVE IT! I use the daily microfoilant every morning in the shower. I rub it on for 30 seconds and it leaves my face feeling refreshed, my skin looks healthier, and brighter. It doesn't dry out my face after the shower, even at 35 years old I still get acne and it helps keep that down to a minimum. I buy something new each payday along with the normal use products I use from dermologic. I don't have any type of bad reaction with different lines of dermologic. I can't express how much I am in love with their product.
        The hardest thing I do have is the price. Single mom of 5 kids and 4 are girls that use dermologic teen line is hard to keep up but it is also worth the price. We will never switch from dermologic.

              This is a great product! I was looking for an exfoliant that would gently scrub my 62 year old skin and smooth out the texture and skin tone. This has worked well, and I can see the difference in just a week in my sun spots. It is fine to use daily and you can leave it on as a mask for deeper treatment. I love it!
