FREE Age Smart Moisturizer Set w/any $50 Dermalogica purchase

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.

        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.

                  I have a Michael Todd soniclear brush I use on my face. Is using this exfoliant and using the brush too much exfloiation? I love my brush, and I will sometimes use it once a day and use the dermatologica pre scrub instead, but I want somethings that will even out my skin/brighten it.

                    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.

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.

                    Thank you for your inquiry. We recommend exfoliating every other day for sensitive skin and being consistent with your skin care regimen. After exfoliating spritz on toner, follow with serum and moisturizer to prevent dehydration. This is a very gentle enzyme exfoliant. It should not be too active for you if you are using it every other day.

I am currently using the microfoliant at night after I cleanse. Any specific recommendations or adjunct dermalogica products that will help with skin maintenance. I am currently only using the calming line however it is not helping with prevention of break outs and clearing my skins, minimizing pores or prevention of oil.

                    Thank you for your inquiry. For the concerns that you are having with your sensitive skin we recommend adding Skin Refining masque 2-3 times a week to help keep follicles clear. You may also use C-12 Power Bright Serum under your moisturizer to help brighten and even out skin tone. With sensitive skin we suggest introducing new products one at a time.

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.
