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:

    The is one product worth the money and I always buy. One bottle goes a long way. This product just melts into your skin instead of scratching it with tiny abrasive particles like most exfoliants. I fell in love with this stuff when I worked at a salon/spa that carried it. It really makes your skin glow and feel so smooth and even. So worth it.

                This is my go-to skin product. Very gentle, yet very effective. I def recommend to use this product over the sink VS shower. I made that mistake of using it in the shower and the powder became muddy inside the packaging. I couldn't use it anymore and it went to waste. :( I've been using this product for over 7 years now and my face is loves this. NO breakout or anything!

                Comments about Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant:

                To be completely honest, the first thing I noticed about this product is the smell - horrible...like baby spit up. However, I highly encourage everyone to hold their breath or bear it, because it works amazing! I had problems with my makeup going on uneven & looking dry on my nose - so I immediately thought my skin was dried out or I was using the wrong makeup. It wasn't until I spoke with an aesthetician that I found out I needed to exfoliate. This stuff did the trick - my makeup goes on smoothly & my skin feels great. I love that it's gentle enough to use every day & doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. It's a bit on the expensive side, but worth every penny!

                I have been struggling with super dry acne prone sensitive skin. I can never seem to exfoliate enough to get flakey peeling skin off my face, even for one day. I've used this stuff twice and I noticed a difference in how my skin felt as soon as I rinsed this stuff off. The second time I used it my flakes were reduced to a fraction of what it was before. If imagine by the third usage I will see even less flakes. So far I'm very excited!

                      Thank you for your inquiry. Daily Microfoliant is OK to use on sensitive/rosacea skin. For more delicate reactive skin we recommend using this product only 3-5 times a week. Always be sure to wear SPF during the day as exfoliation will increase sun sensitivity.

                      Thank you for your inquiry. Daily Microfoliant is an exfoliant that can be used everyday. For sensitive skin you may be better off using it every other day. Ultra Calming Cleanser would be a good choice for a daily cleanser for your skin.
