Ask a Question

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 started using this product about a year ago to help with acne, especially blackheads. When used daily the product definitely helps a lot. In addition to clearing up skin of acne, it also makes my face incredibly smooth after each use. The only negative thing I can say about the product is because it is a powder, it can get really messy or you can accidently pour out way more than you bargained for, wasting the product. Overall though, I love using the microfoliant and recommend it to anyone with blackheads or sensitive skin.

              I like to use this twice a week like they suggested in Ulta. It is expensive but it also does last a long time, at least 6 months or more...especially since you only need a small amount. I like to reset my hands (with the product still there) and rub over my chest and neck and shoulders too if I have extra after using it on my face.

                  I use this product everyday before using the Dermalogica Dermal Clay Cleanser and with my Clarsonic face brush. My face has never been more smooth. I think this, along with the brush, has reduced the appearance of those skin-colored oily moles I have on my face. The entire skin regimen has reduced my breakouts and blackheads.

                  I have very sensitive skin and have found with daily use for a couple days my skin is a little dry. I will switch to every other day to help. I use a Dermalogica cleanser, then the microfoliant, then a Dermalogica lotion. I have noticed a dramatic difference in pore size and black heads on my chin just within a few days. This product is a must have if your goal is healthier younger looking skin.

                  • Q:

                    I love this product, but was recently diagnosed with Celiac Disease. This product contains Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein. Since it is in powder form, it is possible I would inhale the particles before applying to my face with water & therefore I can no longer use it. I hope Dermologica will work to find a replacement for the wheat to make the products gluten free.

                  • Q:

                    I recently had a facial at dermalogica skin bar because of my intense breakout and the therapist recommend me to use this product. I started using this. I wanted to use a moisturiser after using it. At the beginning i used to use dermalogica skin smoothing cream, but it started to give me very little red bumps(very mild breakout) so,i stopped using the cream. My therapist used barrier repair moisturizer at the time of facial and it worked well. What moisturizer would be suitable for me now?

                      Thank you for your inquiry. Barrier Repair is for sensitive skin and can be used by all skin types. If you tend to break out we recommend using a very small amount of this product to address dryness. As long as you do not use too much you should be ok with this product.

                      Thank you for your inquiry. Daily Microfoliant would be a better option for acne prone skin. We do not recommend physical exfoliants on inflamed acne. Daily Microfoliant can be used everyday to help keep follicles clear. We also recommend using Charcoal Rescue Masque 1-2 times a week to maintain healthy, clear skin.

                      Thank you for your inquiry. Daily Microfoliant is the best choice for your skin concerns. Since you are sensitive we recommend using it 3-4 time a week instead of everyday. Ultra Calming Mist and Active Moist would be good to use on your skin after to address sensitivity and dryness without being to heavy and causing more breakouts.

                      Thank you for your inquiry. Daily Microfoliant will help to prevent milia and can help to get rid of existing milia. To avoid milia from forming exfoliate regularly, use a clay based masque a few times a week and avoid products that contain mineral oil and other irritants such as lanolin.

                    I received a facial at Ulta after a demonstration on my hand, and the woman that gave me the facial said something about the product having rice in it. She rubbed it off saying it was dead skin. Is this the same product?
