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 almost every day, it's gentle enough for daily use and doesn't irritate my sensitive/acne prone skin. When I purchased this I was looking for an abrasive exfoliant, something that would get the job done. The sales rep recommended this to me because of my acne, and said that an abrasive exfoliant would just irritate my skin. I was skeptical about this product because it's "gentle", however when I used it I found that my acne calmed down quite a bit and I've not had any new break outs since starting to use it. The smell reminds me of Aveeno oatmeal bath, it's not the best smell but there are no added fragrances so I really like that! I would recommend this over and over again! It leaves my skin feeling smooth and ready for makeup application.

          Comments about Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant:

          Honestly - dermalogica has been a total game changer. I am obsessed with their entire line. I love my esthetician at Ulta and we talked about my needs after my facial and this is something she recommended to me along with precleanse (IF YOU DONT KNOW WHAT THIS IS - YOU SHOULD BECAUSE ITS THE BEST). It's gentle and I feel like it will last me forever.

          The only reason I decided to write a review is after reading the con list. FIRST OFF - this is NOT a makeup remover. This is to exfoliate your skin. You should be REMOVING your makeup before you use this. If not - you're just rubbing your makeup into your pores. Also - if you don't exfoliate on a regular basis I wouldn't start using this every day. Although it's very, very gentle - so is your skin. Give your skin time to adjust and start adding this into your routine slow and be sure to follow up with a moisturizer. It is pricey but I have not found anything remotely this gentle before. To me, it's worth spending the money on this. I know it won't damage my skin and because I use it a handful of times a week it will last me forever. I also do not find it messy. You pour a little into your hand and add a little bit of water and then gently massage into your skin. I highly recommend this among a ton of other dermalogica products. It's worth the money to invest in your skin! This is a GOOD brand who doesn't add BS into their products. I will forever be obsessed.

          Comments about Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant:

          I love this exfoliant! I use it every other day, if I don't, I start feeling bumpy and flaky skin. I feel like this gently retexturizes my sensitive skin and it keeps it exfoliated. Only con is that the product is super expensive for a exfoliator but it does last a very long time if you don't use it daily.

          I just bought this last night and tried it today before putting on my 'cake' face and all I can say is wow. its made a huge difference in how 'scaley' my dry patches would look in makeup. This is deffiantly a product I will be buying again. Plus its easy to use and cool to see the dead skin basically fall off.

            One of my favorite products that really makes an overall difference in my skin's texture and clarity. Leaves skin soft and smooth and makeup goes on much more evenly without clinging to dry patches. Should be used daily for best results. Makes skin look fresh, clean and youthful with a subtle glow. Gently exfoliates even the most sensitive skin without feeling abrasive. I do think it's a bit pricey but I love it.

              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!

                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.

                  What's the difference between the Daily Microexfoliant & the Daily Superexfoliant? They both seem to be water activated exfoliating powders. How do I know which would be best for my combo to oily skin with concerns of redness & occasional hormonal breakouts?

                    Thank you for your inquiry. If you tend to get redness in your skin we recommend using Daily Mcrofoliant. Superfoliant is stronger and has charcoal in it to detoxify your skin.
