Most Helpful Positive Review Amazing product
In exchange for my honest and unbiased review, I was given the opportunity to sample Dermalogica's FlashFoliant Foaming Exfoliator for free. I have been using this product for about one month now, in order to see if there would be any drastic changes in the nature of my skin. When I first received this product, I thought it was a normal exfoliator; however, upon reading the bottle, I learned that it is safe to use once a day after cleansing your face. It's important to shake the bottle first to allow the product to foam, then invert it upside down and squeeze it to dispense the foam. Prior to using this product, I noted the nature of my skin and compared it to how it currently looks (about a month later). I have very oily skin and am prone to acne and regular breakouts, particularly around my nose, hairline, and on my cheeks. Because this foaming exfoliator contains salicylic acid, it has helped reduce the appearance of my acne and I have had less frequent acne bumps. I've also noticed that my skin feels softer and looks more rejuvenated. The size of the pores on my nose have also reduced in size, and the skin on and around my nose looks less congested and more clear. This product does have an interesting scent that's not too strong or unpleasant, and the texture of my skin looks and feels healthier. I would highly recommend those looking for a product that's great for all types of skin try out this exfoliator because your skin may clear up and look better. Just be sure to use the product for a while in order to see actual results (i.e., use longer than one week before deciding if this product is right for you or not).
Most Helpful Critical Review Decent Exfoliator but Terrible for Acne
To start off the FlashFoliant was very interesting to use. The feel and the smell of this cleanser was unique and I did enjoy the application of this product. The grapefruit/orange citrus smell was really fresh, and the flash bubbles felt amazing on my skin. The foam itself wasn't too foamy after the initial pump out of the bottle, but the exfoliant didn't feel abrasive when applied to my face. The product definitely exfoliated my skin gently and my face felt super smooth the next day. However, the oily areas of my combination skin face were not happy with this product, and on my nose this product ended up stripping skin and causing more acne breakouts. While after that breakout ended, my skin was smoother and black/white head free, I didn't like the initial breakout on my nose. While the product wasn't marketed for this, I also have Keratosis pilaris and this product worked great to smooth and exfoliate my arms. I saw a decent decrease in the bumps on my arms, and my skin felt softer.
Reviewed by 201 customers I would buy this product to everyone that wants glowing skin

I would use this product after your cleanser apply your skin with or without a cotton round. you can pat into your skin and then apply your serums and other products
I don't know how I feel about this.
Kat from Ohio
I was really excited at first to try this....the first time I used it, it foamed just a tiny bit and ever since the first time it hasn't foamed since. I've used the whole Dermalogica Clean Start and I honestly could tell a difference in my pores and blackheads literally after the first use, so this was abit of a let down. Will see if I can exchange and fingers crossed the new one will foam.
Cleared my skin up in days!
Lauren from California
i use this product once everyday (either morning or night) and it cleared and brightened my skin in just days!
Disappointed it's like water after 3rd use.
Sl4life1 from Oklahoma
I am going to try and see if I can exchange this product.
Jisseil from Pasco

THIS IS IS A SIGN FOR YOU. YES YOU! GET THIS!
kriss from virginia

abatt from cameron, ok

GREAT LOVE IT
J from $
I used this the first day I got it for my night routine.I was breaking out bad on the side of my cheek and forehead I applied this on both areas and the next morning it was like I never broke out the day before.On the side note it is drying to the skin so if you have dry skin you probably should not buy this ;I apply my moisturizer right after
I like it but I am unsure if it is helping me?
Lexi from Texas
I like this product but honestly am not sure if it is even helping me. I don't have extreme problematic skin but I have breakouts every now and then. It hasn't made my skin worse so there's that!
Awesome from NY
I fell in love with this product! I really enjoyed the exfoliator being foam. It felt very good on my skin. Once, I washed it off my skin felt rejuvenated. My face felt bright and clean. I definitely recommend this product!
Feels good on my skin
Kenzieeh from Cedar Rapids
So convenient the way it foams, it's easy in my skin and makes it feel very clean, but does feel slightly sticky afterwards but doesn't dry my face out.
Might've been okay if the bottle worked
Megan from Atlanta, Georgia
My bottle arrived broken. It doesn't foam at all, it comes out as a clear liquid, even when shaken. The product itself might've been fine, but for the cost, I was hoping for more
Does not dry your skin out!
Esme from Texas
I've had this for a few months now and I love that it's good to use on my sensitive skin. it does not burn at all and I can you day and night with out drying my skin out. I noticed it doesn't really help prevent acne for me however once I have acne it does bring it down over the next few days. I mostly get cystic acne so those took about a week to go down with this, even then I could still feel it under my skin. three stars since this really isn't an instant solution and I don't see myself buying it again. but if you have more patience then me it's a good buy otherwise
Loving this so far
MrsPineapples from Ca
It's helping clear the acne I already have and no new breakouts since I started using this. It's not super foamy, it turns liquid pretty fast on your hand. The main issue I have with this is the smell. To the people saying it smells like citrus.... what??? It smells like hardcore chemicals. Luckily this doesn't linger or I wouldn't be able to use it. It's something I can deal with for the results.
A Bit Confusing at First
rhishea from Florida
Much like others, I also got confused, thinking it was a face wash at first. You're supposed to use it after washing your face. The texture of the foam is quite interesting, and how the product works is, too. I found that after using it consistently, my skin looks smoother and my breakouts are a bit less frequent. My skin feels softer, too, which is always a plus!
Andreea from Detroit
Personally the foam doesn't do a lot for me. It actually broke me out the first time I used it. I wish it would be more "soapy" so I could rub my face but it disappears in seconds after I apply it.
Ang5 from Orlando
I really liked this exfoliator and how it brightens as well! It definitely takes time to work but it's worth it you just have to stay consistent with it!
bun from New York, New York
I really love this dermalogica flashfoliant exfoliator. It helped clear up my acne and red spots a lot and doesn't leave the skin dry.
Laa5 from New york
I enjoyed this product, I've incorporated it into my daily routine. I love using this when I wake up it makes my skin feel nice and bright.
Tetsuma from Michigan
This exfoliator works great! It cleared up my skin and left it feeling smooth. 10/10 product!
Seems to be helping
MsBrandiLion from Utah
I've only used this for a month so I need to use it longer to truly know what I think about it but so far so good. It seems to be helping my breakouts and making my skin look brighter.
Sal from Co
Soo I love the product and it works super well but I never got my free gift😔
Longsar94 from Michigan
This product has improved the appearance of my skin. I have had less breakouts during the summer months and have noticed my skin is more dewy and glowing.
Made my skin brighter every day!
Taylor from Maryland
I loved using this product in the morning to start my day it really seemed to brighten my skin and make it look healthier and even more youthful. I wish the bottle was a little bigger but I liked the texture and the way it soaked into the skin. I would definitely buy this product!
Fine but no big change
Sarah from Boise
This stuff is fine, but I didn't really notice any change in my skin, so either I'm not clear on what it was supposed to do or it didn't do much. Maybe I need to keep using it longer to see change. I don't know.
