Most Helpful Positive Review A genuine, visible difference - AMAZING product
I am so thankful that my Dermalogica therapist recommended I switch from Daily Microfoliant to the Thermafoliant. I've always believed in exfoliating but wasn't always regular with it as I never really saw that much difference. I started using Thermafoliant a couple of months ago and was immediately taken with how unbelievable my skin felt afterwards - it felt like satin, almost slippery smooth. It also feels really nice with the warming effect.
My skin overall is pretty good - I'm 41 but have minimal lines and am usually mistaken for early thirties, for which I credit using Dermalogica for over 10 years now and avoiding the sun. However I had an incredibly aggravating skin tag type thing next to my left eye that really bothered me. It was almost like a wart but skin coloured - maybe 4mm in diameter. It would occasionally flake but if I tried to remove it it was painful and would bleed - gross. My dermatologist told me he could surgically remove it but it might leave a scar so I put it off. However it was bothering me so much I was literally about to make the appointment for surgery when I suddently realised it had COMPLETELY DISAPPEARED. No scar, no mark, nothing. It was like it was never there. The Thermafoliant had completely sloughed it off after just a few uses.
So this product saved me an expensive dermatologist procedure that would probably have involved stitching and/or slight scarring. I've also had people comment on how good my skin looks at the moment, and that's in the middle of a brutally cold and dry east coast winter. My pores are visibly smaller, and my skin overall is clearer and looks younger.
I cannot recommend this product highly enough. Please never change it!
Most Helpful Critical Review Too Harsh for My SSkin
My skin was extremely smooth, but the warming sensation burned my skin and left it feeling extremely tight. Within twenty minutes, my cheeks and forehead had tiny bumps in tight clusters. I'm not sure what ingredient caused the issue, but this product is not for you if you have known sensitivity issues.

Dermalogica's products have always been a hit or miss for me but I'm glad to say that this product is one of the exceptions! Is the few seconds 'warming' sensation when you apply this a bit gimmicky? I used to think so at first, but as I've continued to use it, I'm starting to think this is the one quality that sets this one apart from so many other great exfoliators I've tried, heat helping to open up pores and all that. And of course the ingredients working in these open pores have to be the part too and these definitely are...Retinol, AHA's, BHA's and some good botanicals. The exfoliating granules are finely milled, the Licorice and Vitamin C (combined with the acids) give a fantastic brightening effect, and most importantly my skin feels perfectly smooth afterwards. I love how you're always in control with the amount of exfoliation, on dry skin it works most intensely, but add water if you wish to make it less intense, and the more water you add, the less it will be. Just over 1 minute of gently working this into my skin and I'm done, and I only use a small amount, you don't need lots as you do with so many other scrubs. I like the fragrance of this product and despite the oily consistency of it, I find it adds a bit of hydration into my skin which sometimes (being oily/combination) is just about all the hydration I need. There is a slight residue, but once I've towel dried my face it all but disappears. Pricey yes, but as I mentioned a little goes a long way, so be expecting this to last longer than you expected! -> My 'Ulta Beauty Top 7 must-have list' (My 7 favorite beauty products of all time, focusing mainly on my purchases at Ulta) < - < 1.

I scrub it on in the shower after I wash/condition hair. I leave it on while I finish everything else and rinse right before I get out.

This is a life changer!! My skin feel so good and younger. I use twice a week. Love love love it!!!
Makes my skin so soft!
Natab0525 from NJ
This is a great exfoliating product. My skin immediately feels softer after use. It is a bit of a harsher exfoliant though so use only a few times a week!
I will need a monthly supply
Barbara B from Dearborn MI
This is by far the best exfoliant I've ever tried. Leaves the skin smooth, soft and absolutely bright. It is a truly effective product. And very importantly, it is really quite gentle. I have been using it 3-4 times a week, and couldn't be more pleased.
Will definitely order again

I've been using this for years and I love it
Andi from Delaware
I have normal to dry skin and this makes my face feel fresh and vibrant. It never makes my face feel dry. That is why I have been using it for about 6 years.
Dawn from PA
Face feels so smooth after using.
Use it twice a week for spa feel.
Drmarthajean from Kilgore TX
You squeeze a small amount in the palm of your hand. It immediately feels warm as you rub your fingers together. Gently massage on your face and neck. Rinse. You have gently exfoliated off dead skin and feels great. 2 times a week
LOVE! Favorite exfoliator.
Tam Tam from Long Beach CA
I've been using this exfoliator for a number of years - I love it! I use it in the shower with a face cloth every day and it keeps my skin exfoliated nicely, but it's not harsh.
Sara from Estero florida
This double acting exfoliant is amazing. Enzymes are awesome in their own way, but what stands out to me is the polished surface look you get with this.
The most amazing product I've ever used
Jillian from Long Island , New York
I am obsessed with this product . My skin feels amazing after using. I use every day as I have extremely difficult skin. It becomes warm as you use on your face which feels awesome! After using skin feels renewed and rejuvenated.
AJ from LA
All I can say is it really simple and easy to use and the result is great. My skin feels softer right away. Definitely add that into my skincare routine.
Best is Best
kreysa from Sacramento, CA
There is really not much to say. Just need to buy it and try this product. Gentle yet effective exfoliant. And apposite of some of the other bad reviews about the smell, I love it. I love earthy, Bothanical smell of all the Dermalogica products.
Dermalogica never dissappointed me!
Worth the price!
Dot from Frisco, TX
I use this every other day to exfoliate my face! Does a great job!
April from Scottsdale
I've used Dermalogica's microfoliant for years and after reading reviews for the Thermafoliant decided to give it a try and I'm so glad I did.
I love how smooth it made my skin feel, this is by far the best exfoliant I have ever used. It will be my go to exfoliant from now on.
I think it would be great for any age, but in particular for anyone with mature skin.
have used this for 6 years

Can't get past the smell
me from DC
Really wanted to love this one... the scrub is great, but the smell is awful! Used it a few times as i tried to get used to it (so I didn't return it) but it's just so odd, especially as all the other products I use smell great!
Can't go without!
Grace from Houston
I love this product so much! Even though it's a scrub it releases natural oils and doesn't dry out my skin. It hydrates it. The warm feeling is pretty cool too. This has become a staple in my skincare routine.
Love this product
Catherine from New York
Love this exfoliater. I have extremely dry skin and this gets all of the dead skin off.
LLS from DC
This is amazing. I saw and felt results after only one use. Since it works so well, I think I will only have to use it around once a week. So a little will go a long way! I highly recommend this.
I definitely will purchase again!
Jenn from Toledo, Ohio
Love this exfoliating scrub. It actually becomes warm as you massage this onto your face. Leaves skin feeling clean and fresh!
Yes I would buy it again
Heidi from Southport Nc
Once a week. Wish the initial warming effect would last a few minutes
I buy this monthly!

Use in the morning in the shower for face and neck! Great start to the day!
