              I told the employee who was helping me that I wasn't interested. No, I just had to get it. I told her that micro + exfoliant is not good for me. It does not work for me. No, she tells me it's different. I feel awkward and pressured so I buy it. It made my face flaky and red and feel horrible like I knew it would. And trust me I am not over here like grinding and sandpapering my face, I was being gentle. I am sure it works for some, but definitely not for someone with sensitive, dry, or young skin.

                  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!)

                      What is the difference between the pre cleanse and daily microfoliant? What is better for sensitive skin, are they both an exfoliant to use before a cleanse? Also the difference between ultra calming cleanser and special cleansing gel for sensitive skin?

                      if yes does there need to be a specific time in between the products?

                        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 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.

                        Best Regards,

                      I use benzoyl peroxide daily to prevent pimples would this product be okay to use even with me using benzoyl peroxide cream or will it be too much for my skin? Thanks!

                        Hello Mady:

                        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.

                        Best Regards,
