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:

    This is my go-to skin product. Very gentle, yet very effective. I def recommend to use this product over the sink VS shower. I made that mistake of using it in the shower and the powder became muddy inside the packaging. I couldn't use it anymore and it went to waste. :( I've been using this product for over 7 years now and my face is loves this. NO breakout or anything!

    Comments about Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant:

    To be completely honest, the first thing I noticed about this product is the smell - horrible...like baby spit up. However, I highly encourage everyone to hold their breath or bear it, because it works amazing! I had problems with my makeup going on uneven & looking dry on my nose - so I immediately thought my skin was dried out or I was using the wrong makeup. It wasn't until I spoke with an aesthetician that I found out I needed to exfoliate. This stuff did the trick - my makeup goes on smoothly & my skin feels great. I love that it's gentle enough to use every day & doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. It's a bit on the expensive side, but worth every penny!

    Love it

    Comments about Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant:

    I have been struggling with super dry acne prone sensitive skin. I can never seem to exfoliate enough to get flakey peeling skin off my face, even for one day. I've used this stuff twice and I noticed a difference in how my skin felt as soon as I rinsed this stuff off. The second time I used it my flakes were reduced to a fraction of what it was before. If imagine by the third usage I will see even less flakes. So far I'm very excited!

          Comments about Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant:

          I bought this product after a recommendation from the esthetician at Ulta. Before using this, my face was probably at its absolute worst it's ever been. I had little bumps everywhere, mostly small, but some bigger flare-ups as well. I thought I had an major acne issue. She told me I had clogged pores after examining my skin. She recommended this for how gentle it was for my sensitive skin. I have used many acne medications, both topical and orally, and none of them worked like this. This product is amazing. It literally cleared up my face in a week and half. I still have some little bumps, which are still healing, but nothing like it was before. My skin feels smooth and clean. It has noticeably changed my skin tone. Best product ever and I will definitely be purchasing this again!!

            I use this Microfoliant once a day to clear make up and debris from my pores. I have rosacea and sensitive skin that cannot tolerate other exfoliants. Dermalogica is gentle yet effective for me. I use after cleansing and it makes my skin look brighter and my pores tighter. It prepares my face for moisturizer and my make up goes on much more smoothly.

                I have always used an exfoliator. A drug store brand for years. I was experiencing adult acne and this was recommend to help. After just one use I was hooked. Really felt that it polished my sensitive skin without being harsh. Had a skin treatment done weeks later and the astetician commented how clean my pores were.

                    I am new to using the dermologica products. I have tried the acne line and noticed it has dried my skin out a little. I have combination/oily skin in the T- area but closer to normal/dry skin on the rest of my face. I really liked the cleanser from the medibac line, would you suggest I use this with it or is this effective enough to use alone as a cleanser? what moisturizer would you suggest to go along with this?

                    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.
