Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant Review
The Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant is an exfoliator that will change the way your skin feels. Do you know that feeling when you think you’ve washed your face but there’s still grime and grease on it? Sometimes I feel that my face never feels clean!
The way I discovered the Daily Microfoliant is when I had a 30 minute Dermalogica facial at Sephora. The technician there took one look at my face – especially the pores on my nose and knew instantly that I needed an exfoliate and daily! Some people need to exfoliate more than others.
This product is good for all skin types. There really isn’t anything that it should bother and its not harsh. The main goal of the Daily Microfoliant is to reduce uneven skin texture and dullness. As an exfoliate, the water helps to release salicylic acid and rice enzymes that leave skin glowing and brighter since the dead skin cells are gone.
It is a bit pricey but I do think you’re getting a lot of value for your money.
I did talk about the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant in another blog post about hydration which you can read here. Let’s get into the review!
Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant Packaging
The microfoliant comes in this long tube. Since it’s a powder, it is hard to say how much you’ll use or when you’ll go through it. That is because sometimes you could end up pouring more out onto your hands than you want. However, compared to the Tatcha Rice Polish powder, you’re getting a lot more in terms of grams.
However, the bottle makes it a bit tricky to spill the product sometimes. I would hope that they could improve the packaging so that I am not spilling the product out all over me.

How to Use the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant
I was told to use the Daily Microfoliant in the shower. Yup that’s right. First of all – the powder is obviously activated by water so it’s the perfect place to get the best lather. Also, I tend to use this product in the morning because I find it too harsh with my cleansing routine at night.
Here are the steps you need to use the Daily Microfoliant:
- Shake a small bit of the powder into one of your hands (while you’re standing a bit outside of the shower).
- Leave the bottle outside so you’re not exposing it to water.
- Stand away from your direct stream of water and only use a few droplets for the powder that is already in your hand.
- Make a paste by lathering your hands together. You’ll see the microfoliant is clumpy but apply it to your face and chest area (if you wish) in the clumpy format.
- Do a little scrubby and you’ll feel like it isn’t working at first but then rinse and you’ll see where all of the hard work has paid off!
Results of the Daily Microfoliant
I view the Daily Microfoliant as a polish that allows your skin to shine through. I always feel that my skin is clear and fresh after I use the Daily Microfoliant. Since I do it during my shower in the morning, it sets my skin up for perfection after I use it. I honestly think it is one of the best skincare products I have in my shelf.
Sometimes you can find it in a gift set at Sephora which helps because it is an expensive product but if you are going to have one exfoliate product in your life then make it the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant.
