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 the only facial scrub my skin accepts. My skin realizes the naturalness of all the ingredients used and it naturally accepts it as a cleanser. I've tried other "all natural products" and never had consistent skin clarity like dermalogica has given me.

Perfect texture & immediate results

    Comments about Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant:

    I have never tried a product quite like this one! This exfoliator comes in the form of a powder. It's meant to be mixed with water so that you can form a paste to exfoliate your skin with. The exfoliant bits are small but not mild. For me, this product actually has the perfect texture. It's not too harsh, but it's harsh enough that my skin feels shockingly smooth after usage. I love that the results are basically immediate. It's really improved my acne and the overall texture of my skin, too.

        Comments about Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant:

        I was SO excited to use this product. I've been wanting it for so long, and then my mom asked me what I'd like for my birthday, and she surprise me with this. Such a sad gift.
        My skin is combination/oily, for sure more on the oily side. My skin has been looking pretty darn good, but this winter has brought on some texture/patchiness I was hoping to correct. After I saw so many youtube makeup artists saying it helped, I was sold.
        This was the only thing I changed in my skincare/makeup routine was this product. My entire face is one entire rough patch, skin is flaking off, and my makeup wouldn't apply to my face after ONE USE. It looks TERRIBLE. It's so dry/flaky that it hurts to smile.
        I even diluted it pretty well with water, so there was no harsh scrubbing or exfoliating.
        I'm heartbroken my loving mother wasted her money, and also that my face looks THE WORST for my birthday events.

        Comments about Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant:

        I heard about this product and knew I needed to try it. I noticed immediate results the next day!! I try to Use it every night, along with my Clarisonic in the morning with a toner and moisturizer. I have very scarred skin from bad cystic acne growing up, and I still have bad breakouts at age 20. I've debated microdermabrasion or some sort of peel, but I feared how sensitive my skin is that it could potentially damage it. I've noticed my face is more smooth, and my large pores are getting less noticeable. 10/10 and very worth the money!!

        I don't mind paying a little extra for a product that works. This product, I'm afraid, isn't one of those products. I feel Dermalogica Brand is not any better than a Department Store or National Stores, unfortunately. Don't waste your money. Wow, you can't use the names of these other stores in your review.

                Comments about Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant:

                This product is unbelievable. After years of struggling with acne, taking antibiotics, using harsh topicals, even undergoing a round of Accutane, it seemed like absolutely nothing was going to clear my skin. My forehead was greasy and bumpy with things that weren't quite blackheads or white heads while my cheeks and jaw were dry and developed deeper, bigger zits. I gave up on my dermatologist who wasn't helping and walked into Ulta. Within 2 minutes, the Dermalogica rep looked at my skin and recommended this product. I was skeptical that something that seemed so gentle could do anything, but she told me to start off using it every other day or every two days and I could potentially increase to every day use. Well, that's what I've done and seriously, my skin has never been brighter, smoother, clearer, softer, etc. This stuff is a little pricey, but it is a MIRACLE. I could not be more pleased and I will be purchasing again and again!!

                • Q:

                  Hi, I used this for a little over a week and at first it did remover my texture and made my skin clear but after I continued to use it it broke me out in a bunch of small bumps and dried up my skin way more than it was and I was so upset because at first my skin looked awesome and then it completely did a 180 on me. I don't know if it had anything to do with the fact that I have dry skin or if I was just having a bad reaction to it?

                  Was hoping you could help me with that?

                    You may have been using it too much for your skin. Try not exfoliating at all for about a week and then use Daily Microfoliant 3 times a week. You can adjust the amount of times according to your tolerance level.

We also recommend that you use Overnight Clearing Gel at night to help with treating your skin for this condition. Both of these products together will aid in prevention and treatment of black/white heads.
