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 think I need more time with this product, but overall I feel good about it. I have super sensitive skin and use other Dermalogica products to combat that. The daily microfoliant is very mild-it's barely abrasive. Once you wet it and rub between your hands nearly all of the grit disappears and it's pretty much just froth. I do like how my skin feels after I use it. However, I haven't been using it long enough to give my long term experience.

        I have sensitive skin that gets red and blotchy when I have used other brand exfoliants. Dermologica is gentle for daily use, plus it has skin calming properties so my skin does not get red. My face feels smooth and no dryness noted. After a week of using I can definitely see a difference. Glad I purchased it!!

          Comments about Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant:

          I bought this product because I wanted something more gentle to exfoliate my face with. I have combination skin and it does tend to get really dry even after I cleanse with gentle face cleansers.
          I first started to use this product twice or three times a week at the most and I did not notice a difference at all. Needless to say I was disappointed because so many people gave this exfoliant raving reviews. I decided to use it everyday to see if I would see a difference in my skin. I dampen my face, pour a half teaspoon on a little silicone scrublet face pad and start exfoliating. Half a teaspoon of product does go a long way and I feel like the exfoliant works better using the silicone facial pad than just your hands.
          After using it everyday, I can honestly say my skin does look brighter. It is gentle enough to use everyday but it can dry out your skin a bit. I like the product but I can't say that it's a miracle product or a life changing product. You will see results but perhaps not as drastic as you might think because of the raving reviews you read. I do plan on purchasing this product again for its gentleness most of all.

              Comments about Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant:

              I really feel I get results with this product. It is very pricey for what it is but a little goes a long way when using. I have purchased this several times now and it lasts for almost a year with regular use of 4-5 times a week. I just purchased the set of this with the precleanse oil that was available over the holidays and I keep the travel size around for trips. This gentle product leaves my skin very smooth and fresh and alleviates dry flakey patches. I prefer to use it in the morning prior to applying makeup as it makes foundation application smooth and flawless. Makes a big difference in the appearance of my makeup and brightens my complexion. I will probably try the new superfoliant as well but love how gentle and effective this product is. Never leaves my fair skin red or irritated. My favorite Dermalogica product.

                  A:

                  Thank you for your inquiry. There is less than 1% of salicylic acid in this product. The base is an enzyme which is activated by water. Daily Microfoliant is a very gentle exfoliant and is meant to be used everyday.
