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!!

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 :)

I didn't realize facial scrubs could actually be this good
I saw this every year in Insytle's Best Beauty Buys, but never purchased as I thought 'how good can scrub be?'. But then I bought it and learned how wrong I was! It can be really amazing! I was previously using St Ives Apricot Scrub, which was fine, it did the job. But this scrub leaves my skin radiant, less red and just so fresh.
It's a generous bottle for the price. Now it's a bit weird for a scrub, it isn't a gel or moist consistency, it comes out as a powder, so be weary when you use it, it says on the instructions to use half a teaspoon, I don't even use that.
So once its in your hand, you moisten it and it starts to sort of dissolve as you scrub it on your face. It has a rice flour kind of smell, and a milky consistency when wet. It feels very soothing while it scrubs also, which is nice.
I have found my pores are cleaner and less noticeable with this scrub and my skin isn't as red, I have had less 'stress' pimples too.
I really love this product and will absolutely repurchase!!
Be careful when you first use it, as it can be a bit of surprise as to the consistency of it!
This product is appropriate for anyone I believe, even people with very sensitive skin

love this product...really helps my face to clear out blemishes and gives radiant and glow. It's not harsh unlike other exfoliating scrubs. Not drying on my face and makes my face oil free for long hours evev without using face powder. This is my holy grail for having a skin clear. I will be in love with this product for lifetime, even if it's pricey, it's really worth having it to my skincare...;)

Best in Beauty 2014 - Best. Exfoliant. Ever.
If Comic Book Guy from The Simpsons ever used Dermalogica's Daily Microfoliant he would say: "Best. Exfoliant. Ever." There are many imitations around, but the original is indeed the best. Daily Microfoliant already has a number of accolades to its name, and it gets my vote to add another best exfoliant award to the collection.
Daily Microfoliant is a white powder which comes in a container with a sifter. The first time you use it you wonder how on earth it could scrub your skin. After dispensing a small amount into the palm of your hand, adding water, and working it into a paste, you become even more sceptical that this “paste” could leave your skin smooth and glowing. After washing it off your face, you see something magical. Your skin feels baby soft, and is amazingly smooth. Your skin also imparts this healthy glow, and has such an amazingly refined texture. Daily Microfoliant has worked its magic!
Despite being named “Daily” Microfoliant, I have never used it on a daily basis – I have never had the need. I generally only use it a couple of times a week to keep my skin smooth and soft. Therefore, despite the fact it seems very expensive, one container lasts some time. It is a skincare investment which really pays off!
I am not sure what else could be said about this magic powder, except to say that you should give it a try. You will most likely be pleased with the results, and only disappointed that you have a new addiction. This is the queen of all exfoliants, and I really hope it takes out another Best in Beauty award – it sure does deserve it!

Best in Beauty 2014
This is on of my favourite skincare products. I feel that exfoliaters are an essential step in skincare routines as they take away all the skin cells that have flaked up and leaves yours skin fresh and smooth. I particularly love this Microfoliant because the exfoliating grains are so small that by moving them in circular motions on your face you catch every single old cell. Face exfoliators with larger particles tend not completely scrub off all my dry spots. I also like the smaller particles in this Microfoliant than larger ones because I find it to be much gentler on my skin. Larger particles can be abrasive, where as the grains in this product are gentle and don't irritate my sensitive skin. This formula also doesn't leave an oily film behind which I really like. I also love how it's environmentally friendly - it doesn't contain plastic beads as exfoliating particles (which end up in the ocean getting eaten by sea animals!).

BEST IN BEAUTY 2014
Dermalogica Microfoliant is the only exfoliant that I use day in day out,month after month, year after year.
Microfoliant suits my skin perfectly.
I use it in the shower daily the exfoliant is a gritty grayish powder that is mixed with a little water to form a paste with is massaged over your skin for a minute or so, then rinsed off.
After using Microfoliant my skin is silky, smooth and soft., I believe that my skin is able to fully utilise my serums and moisturisers.
I cant imagine my skin care regimen without Microfoliant, this product is amazing.The only thing I would change is the dispenser, if you use it in the shower you can run the risk of accidently getting water into your product.I avoid this by using Microfoliant before turning on the shower.
