Best exfoliant!!!

I absolutely love this product, it's a little pricey but so worth it and last a long time, it gives my skin such a radiant glow and leaves it so smooth and soft! I use this everyday as it's not harsh or abrasive, my favourite skincare product by far, just love Dermalogica

I was lucky enough to get a full size of this free with a facial. However, I used it twice and ended up giving it to my step-mum. It was so irritating on my skin, it made it feel sore and dry, even though I have oily skin that never gets dry. I just find that there seems to be one or two ingredients in a lot of cleansers/scrubs that my skin can't handle. Unfortunately another Dermalogica product that didn't work for me.

excellent for combination sensitive skin, gentle yet effective exfoliant which is reaction free!
I absolutely adore this product and used it at least 2 a week. I'm a very active person exposing my skin to various environments on a daily basis. As a dressage rider I'm also exposed to a lot of dust/pore clogging environments each day and then into AC office environments & gym sweaty conditions.
It leaves me with a soft and glowing skin and reduced my break outs to a minimum
I also cannot speak highly enough of their active moist moisturiser and cleansers
Amazing gentle product that I a must have! I little goes a long way and it seems to last forever!!


use at night which allows your eye and night cream to really absorb and do wonders while you sleep

Ideal for

combination skin

Gentle, yet exfoliates!

This particular exfoliant does an amazing job in proving that just because it's meant to be abrasive, it doesn't have to be rough!

This comes in a white container with a grey screw cap. While I would ideally prefer a flip lid for it, it actually isn't as hard as I thought it would be to use this. You get access to the exfoliant through two holes at the top.

In order to use it, you have to mix it with some water. With a cupped hand that already has some water in the palm, you can then put some of the microexfoliant into your hand, and mix it all together.

This has the scent of rice, which isn't surprising. It also ends up making a nice paste that doesn't strip your skin, but makes it feel nice and soft instead.

If you're after a rough rub on the skin, this isn't it. If you're looking for something that does a good job of cleaning your skin without hurting it, then you've found it!

Gentle Exfoliant

This product lasts for so long. It's quite pricey and there are a whole bunch of alternatives now. I love that you can take it for traveling without issue. It makes your skin silky soft without any dry patches and doesn't over do it in the exfoliation department. Because it doesn't have large particles or plastic beads it's great for sensitive skin. It's also gentle enough for daily use!

Gentle exfoliator

This is a dry scrub that you mix with water to form a paste then apply. I have to say it's more finicky than the traditional scrubs. It took me a couple of times to figure out the best way to use this, and what works for me is pouring some onto wet hands, then rubbing on the face.
It's not the easiest to use, the lid is difficult to screw on with a handful of powder, and it's easy to waste product.
For the product itself, it's a lovely gentle everyday exfoliator. To me it was more like a creamy cleanser because I prefer my physical scrubs to have more particles.
My skin felt cleaner and smoother afterwards, so it works well. I love how gentle it is, my skin did not feel irritated or dry afterwards. There is no scent, which I love.
This is quite an expensive product so I'm not sure I would repurchase, but I did enjoy it.

Holy Grail Exfoliator!!

I can't believe I haven't reviewed this, my ultimate skin saviour yet!! I'm onto my second purchase (each one lasts such a long time, so the exxy price tag actually turns out quite good value for money) and with daily use, Dermologica's Microfoliant has been so kind and transformative to my sensitive skin woes.
In the past, exfoliators often left my skin red and irritated, this does the opposite, I leave the shower with the softest skin feeling and over time this product has helped to clear redness, as well as uneven skin tone. The texture of my skin has been completely transformed and I've also noticed a reduction in the size of my pores.
I cannot recommend this product highly enough!!

Skin saviour

This products has rescued my skin for years, a few years ago not only did it only improve my already great skin but for the past year has helped with my combination skin problem that has occurred. I use this on a daily basis one a day and I couldn't imagine my skin care routine without it! The best investment I ever made was purchasing this product from dermalogica and I highly recommend it to anyone.

Feels so amazing on the skin!

Dermalogica Daily Micofoliant is the first product I've ever tried from the brand. I'm sold. It's a powder formulation which you dissolve between damp fingers and massage gently into the skin. I can't believe I've only just started using this now - I'm hooked! It's not harsh or abrasive on the skin at all and I feel so fresh afterwards. No wonder it won the award in 2013!

Soft, smooth, glowing skin!

I am absolutely in love with this product. I never thought much of exfoliants until I tried this. The grainyness of this is perfect everyday for a gentle but effective exfoliant. It's also safe to pour down the drain as the "beads" is just rice (biodegradable). This leaves your skin so soft, smooth, hydrated and luminous. It really helps your moisturiser sink into your skin and be effective too. Very happy with this :)
