Best in Beauty 2013 - Best Exfoliant Ever!
This is my absolute favourite exfoliant. I would recommend it to anyone with any skin type, and I just couldn't live without it! That is, in short, why I think Daily Microfoliant should be voted Best Exfoliant!
The amazing thing about this exfoliant is that it comes as an unassuming white powder. There’s no big, harsh grainy bits in sight! Your first thought is ‘surely this couldn't leave my skin feeling soft and smooth like nothing else?’ Once you dispense a small amount into the palm of your hand, add a few drops of water, mix it into a paste, and gentle massage it into your face for 30-60 seconds, you soon discover how amazeballs this exfoliant can be! It gently exfoliates the skin without irritation, and leaves your skin feeling amazing soft, smooth and refined. Yep, a seemingly simple powder can do all that!
There is not much left to say except that - if you haven’t already tried this awesome exfoliant - you really, really, really need to try it! You won’t be disappointed, but you will be so impressed that a powder exfoliant can work such magic. You’ll also be impressed that you don’t even need to use it every day if you don’t want, you can simply use it a couple of times a week to keep your skin glowingly immaculate. Daily Microfoliant is the queen of exfoliants, and I am sure it will be a formidable contender for the coveted title of Best in Beauty 2013 Best Exfoliant!

Best in Beauty Awards 2013 Vote
This product is unique as it is a rice based powder which is dry & you add water when you use it on your face. It is gentle enough to be used on sensitive skin but is still so effective at exfoliating the skin. It leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth. My skin looks more radiant and glowing after use. Very well deserving of its Best in Beauty Awards 2013 nomination and my vote!

one of my favourites.
I LOVE this product !! I dont use this one in the shower as its a bit difficult trying to mix the powder with the correct amount of water so i usually do this after i have cleansed in the shower. My skin always looks incredible after this and its so super gentle to use.My skin has been so much clearer and feels so much smoother after using this product. All round the texture of my skin is a whole lot better and looks lovely and luminious.

what not to love about this product? I fall in love with it when i had my facial done with this product. The product is gentle yet works the wonder and exfoliate the skin. It is gentle enough to be used daily, though i don't exfoliate my skin daily as I want to leave it undisturbed for few days. I like the fact that it came in a powder form and you just add water and create your own paste - more water or less water, the way you like it. I like my scrub to be a bit thick so i can slowly massage it on my face and work on the entire face. This product just suit the need!

Gentle and fantastic!
I think this is one of the most gentle exfoliant I have ever used. In fact it is so gentle that I am able to use this on a daily basis and not dry out my skin. I have been using this exfoliant for years and it still amazes me on how smooth it leaves my skin feeling. It is a tad expensive yes no doubt about that, but if it works for you, why not?

I picked this up on the second beautorium last year and I'm really glad I did! It's very gentle and doesn't irritate my skin at all - I feel much better using this than some of the harsher face scrubs out there.
It takes awhile to get the hang of how much to use but after awhile it becomes easy. I just pop a little bit on my hand and then mix it with the water that's already on my hands...occasionally I'll need to add a little more but even then it's just a drop and that's enough to work it into a paste.
It feels very creamy - more like a cleanser than a scrub actually but maybe that's because I'm used to associating scrubs with more abrasive sort of products. It leaves your face feeling really nice and soft and makeup does go on smoother.
I'm taking one star off for a few reasons - I think it's a little bit overpriced. I know they've dropped their prices and one bottle will last ages but it's still a fair bit of money. The other reason is it didn't really have a brightening effect or anything of the sort on my skin. It had a smoothing effect (like all exfoliators) but I can't say I saw an amazing, drastic change in my skin. It didn't really live up to the hype or the cult status in that sense but I definitely liked it and would consider purchasing if it were on sale :)

i like it but...
I find it is more of a cleanser than a scrub. The exfoliant disolves really quickly so a weekly scrub with another product is still required.

I've used a number of exfoliants and scrubs in the market and there are only a handful I can really recommend to others and stick with. This one is a really effective exfoliant which removes your dead skin and makes it softer and smoother. It's not harsh at all. Like many other Dermalogica products, it delivers results and most importantly it works!

Amazingly gentle but effective daily exfoliant
Suggested by my beautician for my skin - pigmented, acne, blackheads, dryness, I had it all! It is gentle enough to use every day but effective enough for healthy glowing skin.
I use the dermalogica precleanse first, then add this to my regular cleanser, then tone and moisturise - a super quick and thorough face routine!
Instead of using in wet hands, add it to your regular cleanser and cut down on time spent at the sink!

An amazing product - was skeptical about how effective a powder would be at exfoliating. But after reading rave reviews decided to give it a go.
The 'paste' was perfect at smoothening and brightening my complexion. And because it is a paste it isn't as harsh on my sensitive skin.
Just use with wet hands
