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 got this during the most recent beauty sale; for me this was a splurge even at 50% off but I wanted something gentle to help relieve breakouts and exfoliate dry skin, and this stuff had so many great reviews with people saying it was worth every penny! I can say that after using this each time, my skin did feel very soft. It did exfoliate, but also made my skin feel tight afterward. I read reviews saying not to overuse it at first, so I started in with this twice a week for about 3 weeks. First time it seemed ok. Every time after that, I'd wake up the next morning with little pimples forming all over that weren't there the night before. They'd take a few days to go away, then I'd try using this again, same result, more breakouts to deal with the next morning. I finally just returned it; too expensive for something that is going to create more problems than it solves.

    Comments about Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant:

    You have to be careful with how much water you use. Too much, and the exfoliating bits turn to mush. Too little, at it feels like sand paper

    Made my skin WORSE

    By Beautylifebalance

    from Trabuco Canyon, CA

    Comments about Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant:

    I have ezcema on my face and it gets flaky and dry, so I thought this would be great since it's supposed to have calming ingredients and is exfoliating. I waited 2-3 weeks of getting my ezcema under control with diligent care before I tried this product and it was a HUGE mistake. I finally got my skin back to being pretty and balanced in moisture and within MINUTES of using this product, my face BURNED and FLARED again!!!!!! Not only did it bring back the redness and flare of ezcema, but now my face HURTS and is OILY. It burns and I can't touch it and its been 8 hours since I used this product. It's like a chemical burn that made my skin oily. MASSIVE mistake. It's so difficult to get my flares under control and this destroyed WEEKS worth of work in minutes. I've NEVER had a reaction like this to anything before.......My skin was finally pretty and then this destroyed it. Very much regretting this.

    from Delray

    Comments about Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant:

    I had bought this online with the 21 days of saving sale and let me tell you something the first use! I can notice a difference in my face the instant softness in unreal. It's been such a good product in my skin routine ever since i received it in the mail. And i bought 2 just in case i fell in love with it so i didn't have to pay full price the next time and I'm so glade i did. It has made my acne clear up again and my skin so soft, and lets just talk about how my makeup looks after OMG! Flawless! Highly recommend this product

    Comments about Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant:

    I've been using this product for 2 weeks now and I do admit that it has help to decrease the size of my pores. Besides that it hasn't helped my skin that much at all. I have acne and post acne marks which I was hoping it would help lighten or get rid of. Also it smells like baby spit up. Gross! Hasn't helped clear up my acne either.

      Comments about Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant:

      I was first introduced to this product when I was in school to become an esthetician and I'm just as in love with it now as I was back then. I have dry, sensitive skin but this does not bother it at all. I was using Tatcha Rice Powder but that started making me break out in hives so I switched back to this. It evens out my skin texture, brightens, and helps control my occasional hormonal breakouts on my chin. I use it every night after I wash my face and before I apply my toner/serum/moisturizer. It's not intended to remove make up so make sure you still remove make up prior to using this. Also it does come out as a powder so some say it can be "messy" but you only need a little bit and that goes a long way. Make sure you add just enough water to make it a foamy paste (too little of water and its harsh on the skin; too much water and it'll just seep through your hands and down the sink). Even though I don't have oily or acne prone skin, I'd still recommend this to those who do because of the papain and salicylic acid thats in it will help you along with other products you already use. It's pricy but its worth it and the regular size bottle will last you a long time. You'll get your moneys worth. Just because you had a bad reaction doesn't mean everybody who is considering buying this product will btw. Everyones skin is different. Ask for a sample before you commit.

          A:

          Anytime time you introduce as new product there is always a risk of breaking out. This product (all of our products) have a low chance of this happening however we recommend doing a patch test if your skin is reactive and you are concerned about breakout out from a new product.
