      Very gentle on the skin and worth the price. Leaves skin glowing! I've used other exfoliators that feel like you're rubbing sandpaper on your skin. Never again

          Comments about Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant:

          I love this product. I recently overhauled my skin care routine because the organic products I was using were not agreeing with me. I had redness around my t zone and small red blemishes under the skin. My worst issue was the dryness. I live in Phoenix so the hot, extremely dry climate was wreaking havoc on my skin (moved a year ago). My skin resembled the desert in which I live - flaking and visible dry lines. I overhauled my skin care and note have amazing skin!!!! My new regimen is all dermalogica products. I start with the pre cleanse (if wearing make up), follow up with resurfacing cleanser, antioxidant hydramist, skin hydrating booster, and finish with super rich repair. Every few days I use the daily microfoliant. The only product that I use that isn't Dermalogica is my sun block. I might try their physical block for sensitive skin though.

          I really can't even describe how much this overhaul changed my skin for the better. I actually leave the house without makeup for the first time in years. The redness and red blemishes are gone, no more dryness!!!!!! My skin looks brighter and healthier. I'm so impressed and that takes a lot coming from this self proclaimed skin care junkie. Even my day to day makeup is sheer!

          This particular product is great on it's own though. I started with the resurfacing cleanser, the super rich repair and the hydramist I saw amazing results. It got even better with the booster and microfoliant. I'm so happy I invested in this line of skin care.

                      I have sensitive, acne prone and combination skin and when I first used this product, I broke out. Nothing severely, but definitely a few white heads here and there. Is this normal to break out/purge during the first few usages? Thank you!

                        Thank you for your inquiry. It is normal to experience a few breakouts when using a new product. If these breakout continue or become worse you may be sensitive to an ingredient in this product. After 2-3 weeks you should be able to tell if Daily Microfoliant Is appropriate to use on your skin.

                        Thank you for your inquiry. Daily Microfoliant is great from all skin types, especially sensitive. For your concerns we recommend using Daily Microfoliant 3-4 times a week followed by Skin Refining Masque 2-3 times a week. You may also used Clearing Mattifier daily to help reduce pore size. Contact us with any further questions.

                    • Q:

                      I am currently using both Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel as my face wash and Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Cream as my face moisturizer morning and night. I am very happy with these two products and wanted to add the Daily Microfoliant to my skincare routine about 3-4 times a week. I wear very light makeup most days, Bare Minerals well rested powder and warmth with eyeliner and mascara (no foundation, lipstick, or eyeshadow) and always remove it before bed. I have sensitive skin with occasional breakouts around the chin. My question is when would be more beneficial to use the microfoliant, in the morning before makeup or at night before bed?
                      Thank you!

                        Hello Rachel,

                        You can use Daily Microfoliant morning or night. During the day make sure to use a sunscreen daily to prevent sun damage since you will be exfoliating more frequently. Also it is best to use your masque immediately after exfoliating so that may dictate when you wish to use Daily Microfoliant.

                        Hello Jae,

                        Thank you for your inquiry. Daily Microfoliant is a facial product. You may use it on your body however, it may not be very cost effective. You are better off using Body Exfoliating Scrub which has some of the same brightening ingredients along with physical particles to enhance exfoliation. You can use Exfoliating Body Scrub 3-5 days a week according to your tolerance level and follow with Body Hydrating Cream or Ultra Rich Body Cream.

                        It is best to use Daily Microfoliant after cleansing your skin. It is ok to use this exfoliant every day however, if dryness develops switch to every other day. Alaso, if breakouts are an issue make sure to use a clay based masque like Sebum Clearing Masque 2-3 times a week.

                        Hello Yaz,

                        Thank you for your inquiry. Using Daily Microfoliant will help to get rid of and prevent milia. This exfoliant is gentle enough to use around the eye area 2-3 times a week. You may also use a small amount of Skin Refining Masque just on the milia to help maintain a clear complexion. To ensure you are not causing your milia with product use please check the ingredients of your eye make up and eye make up remover and make sure there isn't any mineral oil or lanolin that will clog follicles.

                        You can actually use both. Use Daily Microfoliant daily and 2 times a week replace it with your Gentle Cream Exfoliant. This will help to address dryness as well as brighten and even skin tone. If sensitivity occurs, reduce Daily Microfoliant usage to every other day.

                        Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant is the ideal treatment to eliminate flaky, dry skin! Used each morning, this gentle exfoliant smooths away dead skin cells and debris for a renewed complexion that is ready for makeup application. To further help with dryness, be sure to apply moisturizer after cleansing and exfoliating and before primer and foundation application.

                      Is it okay that I have been using this product for the past few months with my Clarisonic? I use it on the very lowest settings and only after I have put it all over my face and made it into a lather and rubbed for about 30 seconds, only then do use the Clarisonic to just buff it in and make sure it exfoliates best I guess you could say? I have not had any problems with it so far.

                        We do not advise using exfoliating products with Clarisonic cleansing devices, as this could cause over-exfoliation and irritation.

                        Yes, Daily Microfoliant is formulated for all skin types and is gentle enough for use on acne-prone skin. You can certainly add it to your Clear Start regimen!

                      I use the Dermalogica Skin Resurfacing Cleanser with a Clarsonic but also love the results from the Microfoliant. What is the best way to get the most benefits from both?

                        A:

                        We recommend using Daily Microfoliant as your A.M. cleansing routine because of its brightening and skin smoothing effect - the perfect skin prep for makeup application! Use your Clarisonic and Skin Resurfacing Cleanser nightly as your P.M. cleansing routine.

                      Can this product be used at the same time as the Ulta calming cleanser?

                        Yes, we recommend cleansing with UltraCalming Cleanser first, then applying this product. After rinsing away Daily Microfoliant, follow with UltraCalming Mist.

                      Could I be able to use this product every night if I use my clarisonic every night? Or is that too much exfoliation

                        For best results and to reduce the chance of skin irritation, we recommend using Daily Microfoliant in the morning and cleansing with your Clarisonic and a non-exfoliating cleanser in the evening.
