Find in Store-

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:

      It does not have the best smell (it's not a perfume like or artificial smell though.) This product makes my skin feeling refreshed and new. It truly breaks away small dead skin cells without over drying my skin. I have dry skin and products tend to dry me out but not this product. I use this product almost everyday and at least every other day.

        Great product. Received a sample as a gift in store and have already bought it again twice since. It's one of those products that creates the same results EVERY TIME! It resurfaces my skin and leaves it in perfect condition for my cleanser and my make up. I could tell a difference in the condition of my skin within just a few days. Love it!

            This product is gentle enough to use daily however I don't always do so. I have purchased this again because I feel it helps brighten my skin. I changed up and bought the charcoal one at the advice of a sales lady and regretted it. I don't have a resurfacing issue, which the other is meant for and as it says on the bottle the charcoal one does not brighten skin and it dried my skin out. I went back and bought this one and am happy again.

                      I bought this product because it was recommended by an ulta skin "expert". I told her I just started using differin gel and she assured me that this product didn't contain anything that would react to the medication. I used this product once and it made my skin feel like it was burning off and left me with an almost chemical burn on my chin. My face hurts so bad and it looks horrible. Do not use this product if you are currently using differin gel or you will end up burned and your skin looking horrible and red. This will definitely be going back to the store.

                          Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Daily Microfoliant will help with black/white heads. We also recommend that you use Overnight Clearing Gel at night to help with treating your skin for this condition. Both of these products together will aid in prevention and treatment of black/white heads.

                          Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You should not use any type of exfoliating product on the treated area for 3–4 days after treatment or until your skin shows no signs of sensitivity. If skin is no longer sensitive, Daily Microfoliant may be used to slough off peeling skin.

                          Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. The Daily Microfoliant does not have a seal over the 2 holes in the packaging. You may use the Overnight Retinol Repair every night if your skin can handle it. The buffer cream comes with it so that it can be buffered to have your skin get acclimated. You may use up to 3 parts buffer cream to the Overnight Retinol Repair. Please discontinue the use of the Overnight Retinol Repair for 72 hours prior to use of chemical exfoliation. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

                          Hello Sonia:

                          Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. The Daily Microfoliant does not contain gluten. It will help to treat uneven skin pigmentation. We also recommend using the C-12 Pure Bright and the Pure Night to help with clear away spots on the skin. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

                          Best Regards,
