Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant – A One Minute Skin Miracle

It’s no surprise to me that this is Dermalogica’s number one exfoliant! When I received this in last month’s Glossybox I thought it was a novel little product and I looked forward to trying it. I didn’t release what a superstar it was and how much I would fall in love with it.
What’s different about this exfoliator is it’s a POWDER! A unique, gentle, rice-based exfoliating powder that activates upon contact with water. Releasing Papain, Salicylic Acid and Rice Enzymes that micro-exfoliate dead cells, instantly leaving skin smoother and brighter. Formulated with a skin brightening complex of aspergillus, grapefruit and liquorice that help to balance uneven skin pigmentation.
How to use?
Dermalogica  recommends dispensing about a half-teaspoon of Daily Microfoliant into very wet hands and create a creamy paste by rubbing hands together. Apply to face in circular motions, avoiding the eye area. Massage gently for one minute, then rinse thoroughly. I’ve tried it this way and it works great, but I prefer dispensing into dry hands and rubbing into a damp face. It starts out as a scrub and evolves into a foamy lather.
It really is a fantastic exfoliant. It’s less abrasive than traditional exfoliators and has cleansing/moisturising properties. Whilst it’s gentle enough to use daily, I tend to use it two to three times a week in conjunction with No7’s Hot Cloth Cleanser (another of my faves). It leaves my skin feels brighter, refreshed and more glowing in an instant.
The downside is... you guess it, it's on the pricey side. A 75g tub will cost around £35, but if you fancy giving it a go, check out this Gift set  from Lookfantastic containing a 75g Daily Microfoliant plus 30ml PreCleanse and 10ml Gentle Cream Exfoliant for £27.
