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.

    This stuff gives my skin life. When I saw the price, I flinched but for how long it lasts and for how much of a difference I see, I can justify the purchase. It has evened out my skin tone, balanced the texture and the smell is to die for < 3

      Comments about Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant:

      Finally, an "abrasive" that isn't abrasive! It exfoliates so gently that my skin feels soft when I am done with the rinsing. Sometimes I mix it with the dermologica cleanser and sometimes I use it after already using the cleanser. And I can use it daily -- some of the other brand defoliants were too harsh for my aging skin, but this one is just right (I feel like Goldilocks!)

            I've fallen in love with this product in a few short weeks. It is gentle so it doesn't irritate the skin and the level of exfoliation it provides makes it perfect for daily use. I use it when I wash my face in the mornings and since I've started using it, my makeup goes on so much better and looks smoother. I will probably be buying this product for the rest of my life!

              I've bought and gone through two of the smaller sized bottles. Definitely worth every penny! I struggle with very sensitive skin and open wounds on my face. For me it's a welcome aid to removing the smallest irritants and blockages from my pores. Recommend to anyone who can afford it, even using twice a week helps!

                I was hesitant to buy a face wash type product for such a high price tag; however, with some research and some great reviews of this product on the ulta website, I decided to splurge. I've had issues with acne, dry/combination skin and was looking for a product that wasn't going to irritate my skin at all. I have acne scars and some redness along with texture and this stuff has helped everything thing calm down and stay down. It's been about 2 weeks and I've seen my skin improve greatly along with using some other products that I know don't bother my skin. It's so good!

                      Hello There:

                      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.

                      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. 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.

                      Hello Joanna:

                      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.
