Well I've only used this twice but love it already. I wanted to buy the daily resurfacer but it was so exspensive so after reading some MUA reviews I decided to try this instead. My skin feels better already hope it gets even better. I have some pigmentation and congestion so hopefully this will help.
I love everything Dermalogica, but I must say that Daily Microfoliant is the best product from them if you are only going to get one thing from them. It's so perfect for everyday use and keeps my skin perfectly soft and not dry. It's a bit pricy, but lasts a long time. I have had my retail size for about a year now and it's only 3/4 gone, and I use it 2x a day!!!
I love Daily Microfoliant. I find that it leaves my skin glowing, smooth and clear. I use it daily, in the morning and am really impressed with the way my face feels afterwards. I have combination skin which dries out in the winter but the Microfoliant has been part of my routine for over a year now and I can't imagine living without it. Highly recommended!
so wanted to love this. every magazine and beauty journal you pick up tells you this is the scrub to buy. No harsh particles. Brightens the complection. lasts for ages. all true. But -and this is a pretty big but - it totally dried out my skin. I didn't even use this every day as suggested. I don't have particularly dry skin, it's normalish, prone to dryness sometimes but also a bit oily in parts and can breakout. Even using this on these parts only had the same effect. I kept my bottle and am using periodically - once every 4-8 weeks or so as a treatment product when my skins looking a bit dull but won't be re-purchasing.
I've been using this for a couple of weeks now, and I must say that I like it so much better than any other exfoliant I have ever used. I still use my MAC Microfine Skin Refinisher about once a week, but it is so harsh compared to this. I have been using the precleanse, dermal clay cleanser, then this. So I guess I don't understand the reviews that say they are using this as a makeup remover. That's not what it's meant to do, it's an exfoliator to use after your makeup has been removed. I bought my dermalogica products from a spa, so they advised me on the best way to use them. I'm not sure about the other reviews, but I've seen great results with this plus my skin is so much smoother and looks more fresh. Maybe it's the whole line too, I'm still waiting to give it reviews, but I love everything that I have used so far. Also, this is a little expensive, but a little goes a ong way and you will have this forever!
I wanted to love Dermalogica products bcoz I've heard/read great reviews abt 'em but unfortunately, they made me break out. I bought the combo skin trial kit n used 'em for abt 1-2 months before quitting coz i experienced one pimple after another. i switched to Nouri Fusion skincare n my breakouts were healed. i then got back to use only the Daily Microfoliant bcoz I wanted to 'brighten up' my complexion but damnnn - after only abt a week's usage i experienced some breakouts! i guess it doesn't suit me...
I've been using this as long as it's been on the market. The only bad thing i have to say about it, is that it's a bit expensive, but it's so good it's definitely worth it. This is the one product i really won't live without.
I'm not sure how anyone can compare it to baking powder, but sure, if you really think it's just as good go ahead and save the money.
Though I like this exfoliant I'm not 100% sure that I would buy it again. It's gentle enough to be used daily and I like that you can't overdo it w/ this product and srub your skin raw. This is very similar to the rice powder exfoliants out there; starts off with a good, gentle exfoliating texture but then quickly dissolves into a paste (you get about about 4-5 seconds of good scrubbing) . Overall, this is a pretty good product and I've yet to find another scrub that I can use daily (big plus!), doesn't make me break out, and isn't too harsh for my skin.
The downsides are that it doesn't do a good job of taking off makeup, leaves my skin dry and tight, and isn't great at getting rid of blackheads and such.
Overall, I liked this product and would recommend others to try it. continued >>
1. Rice Bran and Rice Extract gently microfoliate skin surface to facilitate penetration of the Skin Brightening Complex.
2. Papain Enzyme and Salicylic Acid help dissolve excess surface cells.
3. Skin Brightening Complex of Licorice and Bearberry helps even skin tone.
It's expensive but it comes in a big 2.7 oz bottle and you only need a bit for cleansing. So it lasts a long time. I'm actually hoping that I'd use it up some time soon so I can try out other cleansers. I read somewhere that a reviewer compared this to baking powder and I can't say I disagree with her. Overall, I would give it 3.5 lippies, but since MUA doesn't have half rating system, I'd give it 3 lippies (just average). There's definitely no brightening effects, none that I can see, and it is just like baking powder in a way. I find that it doesn't clean very well and never fully gets rid of my makeup although it does gently exfoliates the skin's surface. It is a little dry so I would recommend a good moisturizer after using this cleanser. Overall my review: it's expensive with average quality -> so therefore, I would NOT repurchase. Neutrogena Clear Pore Cleanser Mask gives delivers much better results and costs 1/5 the price. continued >>
Oooo how I love the Daily Microfoliant. It really brightens, smoothes, softens, clears my skin perfectly. I have oily, but somewhat dehydrated skin (crazily enough) and this works perfectly without irrating my skin one bit. A little goes a long way, you just put about a teaspoon full in the palm of your hand, add a bit of warm water and then rub on your face for about a minute. You can even leave it on your face for 5 minutes as a sort of mini mask. The only downfall is that it's really expensive, but I will be repurchasing since I cannot seem to find a cheaper alternative!
Just make sure you use it right.....cleanse first, microfoliate for at least 1 minute (10 minutes as a mask is better), wash of and moisturize. continued >>
