Most Helpful Positive Review OMG This is my new fav!
So I needed a good face scrubber and something that would help with wrinkles too. Having sensitive skin, as well as combination skin... I knew I would need to talk to an expert. I headed to my local Ulta, talked to my favorite makeup artist and she took me immediately to this. I started out with a small bottle just to be on the safe side..incase it didn't work for me and broke me out, or caused me to be have leather face, like my previous cleaner I had picked up at the store. That night I did just as my favorite consultant had told me to do. I wasked my face with warm water then added the powder mixture my hand, getting the other hand wet, and rubbing it together to make a paste. I applied it to my face, using my finger tips and working in circles. She had told me not to leave it on long, so about 10 minutes later I rinsed my face off with fresh warm water, then I took a non-dyed, non-bleeched white wash cloth and wiped off any extra residue.
After drying my face... I seriously could not believe how smooth and clean my face felt... I was impressed I was taking pics of my face and sending it to my sister, telling her she had to try this. Again another score in the right direction from the amazing team at Ulta!!!
Most Helpful Critical Review not worth $
I opened this small bottle and was extremely confused at first what was going on and how I was supposed to use the product.. I either received a bottle literally more than half empty or that's how it comes? I'm really not sure because this was my first time ever trying Dermalogica. Regardless of the packaging, the dusting comes out super quick and doesn't tell you how much to mix with the water to create a paste. Even though it did feel like it got deep down into my pores to clean, I can't say that this product was very soothing, or non-irritating. My face was very dry afterwards and had just a tiny stinging sensation. My skin felt smooth afterwards, but did not lessen the look of my pores sadly.

Don't hate it or love it, wanted to try it out but probably wouldn't buy it again. Don't leave in the shower as the powder will get wet and clump up and will not come out of the container. It's ok.
A good exfoliant
LK from Ogden UT
I like this product because you can use it everyday and not worry about it being too aggressive on your skin. Because it is expensive, I do buy this, but only use it maybe three times per week because of the cost.
I simply love it !
Addie from Laredo ,TX
I have been using it for many years as I have very sensitive skin and nothing else works . I have tried a lot of things and nothing compares to it so it will be my forever choice .
Makes skin glow
AZ from CA
I love this product and the travel size makes it affordable. I don't use it daily though. When I do use it, it makes my skin look fresh/glow and I tend to get compliments that day. The con is that sometimes my hand is too wet so it just becomes a wet mush in my hand. The paste can't be too wet - it needs to stay gritty.

I stopped exfoliating a long time ago because it makes my skin produce too much oil so I became afraid and was unsure of what products to use. I was actually recommended this product by the lady who did my eyebrow microblading since she noticed my skin had clogged pores and built up dead skin. I bought this since I trusted her advice and I am so glad I did. I don't use it daily but instead use it in combination a few times a week with my GoodieCo SuperCharged Trio Set. I first use my cleansing oil, then this product, then my brightening and moisturizing oils after and my skin feels AMAZING! I have also learned that finding the right exfoliating product will help your other skincare products work more efficiently. This product specifically has enzymes in it that break down the dead skin cells. I was advised to put this product on and leave for 10 mins then wash instead of washing immediately like the directions state. As with all exfoliating products you should test your skin's sensitivity to a product before you leave it on and don't scrub, be gentle! This product is kind of expensive but if you only use it a few times a week I think you get a pretty good amount for your money. Definitely worth it!

I'm still trying to decide if Dermalogica is worth the price. I had a Dermalogica facial about three weeks ago and decided to try a travel size of this. When I look at the active ingredients in their products I don't see anything medical grade and things such as AHA, lactic acid.... are always listed several ingredients in... meaning there isn't much. It is easy to use. I don't notice a bad scent, so maybe I'll have to update in a few weeks. These are tough times for many and I want a lot of bang for my buck.., so I'm not ready to say this is a wonderful product worth the price.
Yes I will buy again

My face felt gritty till I started using the Wash and this exfoliant. Thanks to Store gal, my face is feeling and looking much better.
Not great for normal to dry skin.
MaksG from Dallas, TX
I use this item with a few drops of water to activate it into a frothy substance and apply with Dermalogica's synthetic fan brush over clean dry skin. I leave it on for about 4-7 minutes. I personally prefer the microfoliant for my normal to dry skin that often gets red naturally. Superfoliant made my skin flare up with redness and made it more sensitive for 2 days. I'm glad I tried it, but will be going back to the original microfoliant. I recommend this for skin types that are normal/oily/combination. The charcoal was too strong for my skin.
Martie from Forest City, NC
if you use the exfoliant from Dermalogica, this 1 is more finely milled. It works beautifully. I prefer the original 1 but my husband prefers this 1. They are both great products & id recommended basically anything Dermalogica. This is a very gentle but effective exfoliant.
I like it
KP from FL
I have acne prone, combo skin and I previously bought the regular daily microfoliant and I wanted to try this one. Honestly, I feel like the microfoliant works better for me than the superfoliant! But I still like this product. This product doesn't dry my skin out with daily use, neither does the microfoliant.
After a week my skin was broken out and terrible
M from USA
Used it every morning for a week and I started to get white heads and painful pimples and my skin itched and was red and dry. No issues with the daily microfoliant but this one was too harsh. After stopping for 2 days, redness subsided and noticeably clearer. Bummed!

Smells horrific. Won't repurchase.
So far so good
Taj from Pa
It's a powder which caught me off guard.. I watched a YouTube video on the proper way to use. I've used it for about a week once a day.. haven't noticed a difference yet but I will say my skin feel tighter when I wash it off.

I feel so refreshed after i use this product. An Ulta employee recommended this to me and now I'm ready to buy more dermalogical products bc i love it so much. I truly feel like my face is clean and free of dead skin!
One of my favs
Rach956 from Laredo, Tx
I keep it in my shower for morning use.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!
LisaAnn from Whitewater, California
I love this product and can't be without it. I use it nightly as I do not have sensitive skin, however if you are not used to exfoliating on a regular basis I would skip a day to let your skin rest. My makeup applies smoothly and it makes my skin glow, which isn't easy as I am over 50. Give it a try...you won't be disappointed.
Yes I will purchase again
Nellie from Rochester, MN
I use it in the shower in the morning. It makes my makeup go one really smooth and helps with texture. I buy the travel size as I am able to justify the price a little better and it lasts longer than one would think. It's worth the money!
I REALLY Like It!
Bree from Huntsville, AL
I use the product in the morning and sometimes at night but not both. It makes my face feel so smooth and my makeup looks more natural and fresh.
You are missing out!
HCBeauuty from Indiana
I absolutely LOVE this product! Ever since I became a licensed Esthetician I have been able to try hundreds of products and this is by far one of my favorites for a daily exfoliant. This is the older sister product compared to the Dermalogica Daily Microexfoliant. I have learned over experimenting with this product it is best if you wet your hands first before you pour a DIME size amount into your hands. Rub your hands together to create a foam like consistency. If your hands are too wet it will cause the exfoliant to become too runny. If your hands are not wet enough the product will be too thick and grainy which can cause irritation. I have acne, hormonal skin that causes me to break out a lot and this product really helps keep it at bay. I would suggest exfoliating at night and if you have active acne make sure not to scrub intensely because it will cause it to be worse or be more irritated.
Also, hint hint it WILL cause your skin to feel VERY dry after because its an exfoliant (whaaaaaaat... That's crazy, I know) Make sure you apply a serum and moisturizer afterwards to put hydration back into your skin.
New for me
