Daily SuperFoliant is a much more intensive version than that of their famous Daily Microfoliant. This product claims to detox and remove pollutants from skin by adsorbing (research adsorb) with a special Japanese charcoal, how this differs or compares to general cleansing with a water soluble cleanser whereby pollutants are simply rinsed from skin like any other grime I do not know, but I don't think you need to pay the extortionate sum Dermalogica are asking in order for you to do this effectively. The particles size and texture of the product is certainly much more coarser and intensive than the Microfoliant, it contains much more actives in the form of more exfoliating acids and enzymes to help un-glue dulling surface flakes, and is also a part of their AGE SMART line so perfect for those who are currently combating or want to start preventing against premature ageing of the skin. As usual the product is loaded with essential oils (fragrance in other words) and therefore the smell though pretty and botanical is quite overwhelming. Looking at the ingredient listing there are several surfactants included in the formula, all of which are used to facilitate the easy rinsing of the product from the skin, but there are enough surfactants in the formula for this product to be an actual cleanser in itself, or exfoliating cleanser. A bit annoying since you you are instructed to cleanse before using this product, but using this after makeup removal or your precleanse, this is just fine to cleanse AND exfoliate skin at the same time. The packaging is simple and easy to use, the opening is tad large and it would be great if they could decrease the size of the opening as there is a tendency to take out more than you actually need. In terms of performance whilst brightening and exfoliating is visible and perhaps a temporary smoothness, it really isn't much different than the microfoliant in that it is more course and the fact it contains this special "activated charcoal". Personally I think it is a waste of money and would rather a leave on chemical exfoliant but if you must try it then purchase the small sample size first!
