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 was directed to this product at my local Ulta. I was looking for something to help smooth, hydrate, and exfoliate my face. BUT it had to work for extremely sensitive skin. I will break out if I use anything besides water! This product hasn't botheredy skin at all and I've achieve clear, smooth, acne free skin for the first time in 15 years!

        After trying a sample of this product I decided to take the plunge and purchase a bottle. I'm very happy with the results I've seen. Smoother and brighter skin, less pimples. This is a great product and am sure I will repurchase when it runs out.

            Comments about Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant:

            I've been using this exfoliant for a few months now. Depending on the condition of my skin I'll use it anywhere from once a week (if I'm clear) to daily (if I'm breaking out). This stuff is waay more gentle than most exfoliants which honestly I found were making my skin worse from all the harsh abrasives. This microfoliant does none of that- it exfoliates smoothly and gently as often as you need without being harsh or feeling like it's stripping your skin... After I use it my skin feels smooth/soft/calm never irritated/tight/dry.. I'm not a huge fan of the smell (it's not bad, just not great) or the price, but the stuff does last forever and does exactly what it claims so I can't be too mad about that!

                Comments about Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant:

                This product was useless for me. I should've known an exfoliant I can use daily would be too gentle for me. I didn't see any worthy results... It was very costly for the results to be unnoticeable. I gave it to a friend to see if it worked out for her. Haven't asked her about it though.

                      Thank you for your inquiry. We recommend using your Clarisonic less frequently while using Daily Microfoliant. You may use them together however, not every day. Adjust according to your skin's tolerance level.

Closely monitor skin sensitivity levels, if dehydration develops try using every other night until your skin adjusts to the exfoliation. Be sure to use sun screen everyday and keep skin hydrated.

                    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?

                  • 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?

                      A:

                      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.
