Most Helpful Positive Review Will purchase full size bottle
I received this as a sample from ULTA when making a purchase. I have used it almost every day for about 2 weeks. I use my normal cleanser first and then apply this superfoliant. I only use a very small amount, massaging the product on my face and neck for about 1 minute or so, while in the shower. I have tried a variety of Dermalogica products (wanting to love them) but I have not been won over by any particular one yet - until this one! I absolutely loved it from the very first use. I have extremely fair and sensitive skin. Most products I cannot use daily, but so far this one has been fine for daily use. The major differences I've noticed in my skin are clearer pores and softer texture.
Most Helpful Critical Review Stay away from this if you have sensitive skin!
I had a sample of this product and decided to try it out since I developed a few weird little bumps on the side of my nose my regular exfoliant just wasn't getting rid of. BAD IDEA!! I thought that since it said "daily", that meant it wouldn't be anything crazy harsh and my skin could handle it fine. My skin is dry, sensitive, and prone to break outs, but it's taken things that are marketed as much stronger than this and been okay. This BURNS. I couldn't rinse it off fast enough, and even then, my skin was bright red and hot. I put a sleeping mask on to calm my skin down after using this thing just once. Daily??? If your skin can take this thing daily, I'm jealous. Those of you with skin that's more like mine should keep as far away from this stuff as possible (it's mostly baking soda ... wish I'd read the ingredients more closely before using it).

I do like this product, but it smells like horse manure!
Turned My Pores BLACK
Erin from New Jersey
This product nicely exfoliated my skin. But it turned my pores black! It now looks like I have tiny blackheads all over my T Zone! I hope this will go away quickly! I couldn't believe my eyes. It looks like I have blackheads everywhere. The powder is grey and turns black when it's mixed with water. BEWARE!!!
Best Product for Textured Skin
Ragsy from Northern California
I am in my late 30's with pores the size of canyons. No matter what I do I can never seem to get skin I'm happy with, except for this. I use it twice daily, morning and night, and my skin is soft, supple, and glowing. I went a long time without replacing this and regret it so much. I've been lamenting about how good my skin looked in using it, and I made the smart decision to repurchase and my skin is magic again. 20/10 Hardcore recommend.
Leylaa from San Francisco
This superfoliant does the job! It creates a smooth, more bright look for my skin, while also gently exfoliating. I love it so much! There is a difference in my skin after each use.
Maria from Southgate, MI
This a very good exfoliating. Clean my pores pretty well.
Great weekly cleanser
Jaxx Mom from Ogden UT
I like to use this once a week as a special cleanser.
Ride or Die
persephone_amt from Wyoming
This is a ride or die product for me. I shell out the bucks for this and it lasts me so long. It is an excellent exfoliant and I consider it an indispensable cornerstone in my regimen for managing my adult acne. I would suggest that it could burn you if you have sensitive skin. I have irritated my skin at times using it but for the most part I'm fine with once daily usage.
I would recommend this product
JE from Wisconsin
I use this for exfoliating my aged skin! It leaves my skin very smooth and soft. I do not like the smell but otherwise it is a very good product.
A Must Have
Sweet T from Georgia
I have suffered from acne since middle school leading all the way up to my 20's from blackheads to painful hormonal cystic acne. I also have very sensitive skin, that ranges anywhere from super oily (in my T- Zone) to very dry (from my eczema). From seeing many dermatologist & trying various products, I still could not find a product that seems to consistently work for me. There is nothing more relieving than finding a product that consistently works for my very complicated skin type. This product keeps all my breakouts at bay, even during "that time of the month".
10/10 would recommend, even if you have very sensitive skin like myself.
I love this product and would buy it again
Bobby Sixkiller from CA
I love this product! I received a facial at an Ulta store and the facial gal turned me onto this product over 2 yrs ago and I have been using it ever since. It is an extremely finely ground product which scrubs your face but does not leave it dry.
Liv from Los Angeles
I use this everyday, it's gentle enough to not dry my face out and feeling soft. This has really helped with breakouts and makes my face look brighter and not tired.
Holy grail worthy
Wannee from Dallas, TX
Run, don't walk, into the closest store to get this now if you are looking for an exfoliator. I went in thinking I needed a better cleanser to get smoother skin. After talking to one of the skin experts (I wish I knew her name, she was amazing) she recommended adding an exfoliant into my skincare routine. After one use I got the results I was looking for. No more uneven skin texture. My skin is now so smooth and so clear thanks to adding this one product. Had I known about this product sooner I would have been saving so much money on facials. You don't need to spend a whole lot of time massaging this into your face for it to be effective. I am so impressed with how little effort yields such amazing results. I've never bought a Dermalogica product before, but now I'm totally sold.
Silk smooth skin
Bgjanis from Oklahoma City ok
I like using this product to refresh my skin 2times a week to smooth out layers of skin that have built up. To be very honest, I don't wash my face everyday and this chemical exfoliant makes up for those days I neglect to wash bringing it to its vibrant self. I also like to use it a couple of hours before I plan on doing my make up for an outing so that make up goes on smooth
Keeps Breakouts at Bay
Christine from San Pedro, CA
I use the superfoliant 2x/week and it has worked WONDERS on my skin. I rarely have breakouts now and my skin's texture feels so much better. I sometimes use the microfoliant as well, but I think the charcoal in the superfoliant is better for my skin.
Wynette from Bakersfield
So far so good it seems to be clearing up my cheeks!! Only been using for six days now
Patti from San Diego, CA
I use it to exfoliate and it's not abrasive. The one I came in for and wanted was easier to use but you didn't have it. This is the next best thing.
Yagirl from Chicago
Smells weird but the smell doesn't stay on your face, so you'll be over it by the time you wash off your face. The scrub is soft and not super rough like some exfoliators tend to be on skin. I use it after my dermalogica cleanser and it makes my skin feel so smooth after using. For best results use the other brands routine (it's expensive but so worth it). I have actually had to buy two sets of this so I could give to my sister. She's been struggling with acne her whole life and she's got sensitive skin but oily and rough so it's hard to get the best products to match her skin. This works for her and it's cleared her face up in 3 weeks.
So far I love it!
WhoCares from Dallas, TX
I've been using this roughly 4-5 days a week for 3 weeks and I definitely notice a difference in texture and I'm a LOT less oily. I'm not sure if this is the "holy grail" for oily skin, but so far it's been fantastic. THIS IS IN POWDER FORM AND REQUIRES WATER TO ACTIVIATE IT! I didn't see that part until I watched a YouTube review after I'd ordered. If it feels too gritty just add a drop or 2 of water for a smoother texture. I don't have sensitive skin, but have had to skip a day here and there because my nose (sides of nostril area) gets a kind of raw/chapped feeling but that could be from a product combo issue. No regrets buying, it pairs well with the Dermalogica sebum clearing mask if you're super oily.
True wonder product
NerdProQuo from Kentucky
In my life there have been 3 major innovations for my skin that made a difference everyone could notice and this product is one. Never imagined my skin could appear THAT MUCH smoother, finer pores that had otherwise seriously begun to gape as my skin ages. It is super soft to the touch and those tiny little white bumps that never turn into anything are coming to a head and disappearing! Amazing product, can't say enough about it. Worth absolutely every penny.
shhhhhhhh this is a secret!
AlwaysSeekingBeauty from Marina Del Rey
I am a bit hesitant to rave about this product but I must! It's AWESOME, it works, leaves my skin feeling amazingly smooth!! I just want to be able to find when I need it.....so shhhhhhh!! LOL
Dani from Denver, CO
I got a sample of this for free with a recent purchase, and I was excited to try it because I've heard such good things. I followed the directions and mixed it with water to use, and it didn't really form a paste, but I put it on anyway. I wish I had smelled the paste first because it was HORRIBLE. I immediately washed it off and dumped the rest of the product. I will not be using this again or purchasing it ever.
Review from an esthetician
Esthi loves skin from Saint Louis
As an esthetician I know not all products are going to spell like roses and cupcakes. Most higher end and medical grade products don't because we all know fragrances aren't are friends when it comes to our faces... with that being said, has anyone here been to a zoo? Or inside an ape house? Because when I'm telling you, the first slather of this on my face I felt like I walked right into the doors of the ape house at the zoo. Smelled like a full on face of ape s... I mean, I honestly don't think it could come any closer to that smell if it tried. I don't care if my face felt soft after(which is the only reason it got two stars) , there's so many products that can do that and have additional benefits that don't smell so horrendous. Do yourself a favor and don't.
Also st. Ives apricot scrub is NOT your friend. That is all.
IT WORKED FOR ME
k from LA, CA
WOW! This really does what it claims. I was very cautious to try this since my skin has been very sensitive this winter. Age, stress, and the weather has caused facial eczema and my skin has been so embarrassingly itchy, red, and flaky! I chose this because Dermalogica's Ultra Calming line has been very gentle yet effective on my skin so I thought this exfoliant would be gentle enough. After the first use, my face was notably brighter and smoother without irritation - I was SO AMAZED! Wish it wasn't so expensive, otherwise I would've given it 5 stars!
Can't live without!
Cara from Bay area
I use this everyday after the calming cleanser, and it's such a nice gentle exfoliant. My face feels so clean after! It has helped a lot with my blackheads.
Yanly from Miami
I really like this But after a week burn my face so bad that right now it hurts, im peeling and my face so sensitive and red. It's a good product and I like the clean feeling on my skin but I think for daily uses tis not recommended. I have oily skin and before starting using it ny skin was gorgeous, now i have red bumps, im burned and my makeup because the peeling is caking so bad. So sorry for my review.
