Love it but...
I wash my face and leave it wet then on damp hands I sprinkle about a sugar packet's worth of Daily Microfoliant and rub together to create a slightly foaming paste. While anchoring my thumbs to my jaw I use my pointer, middle and ring fingers to work in small up and outward circles, avoiding my eye area. There is virtually no gritty texture so when you first use it you are thinking to yourself 'how can this possibly work?' but it does.
I suffer both Rosacea and adult acne. It's a bitch. It's very hard to find a manual exfoliater that doesn't tear my skin apart and this one does not. It is the epitome of gentle and effective. This products rinses cleanly and completely and I simply follow it with my moisturizer.
So where's the con? It contains talc and parabens. *sad face*
My Favorite Dermalogica Product!!!
I swear the heavens opened up and dropped this little miracle into my hands the day I tried it. Everything about it is amazing! It's a powder that you activate with a little bit of water to create a grainy paste and then wash your face with it. It's not abrasive at all, but you can tell that it's exfoliating still. It's got almost a grainy but silky texture if that makes any sense. It's like the best of two worlds! The texture is something I can't even explain. It's just awesome! My skin looked and felt a million times better just after using it two times! I definitely recommend this product to everyone, and more-so those who are looking for a product to exfoliate their skin that's not overly abrasive.
Give this a try, you won't be sorry!
I always felt like Dermalogica wasn't really delivering real results to me, but I LOVE this exfoliant. Not until I used it on myself did I realize how amazing it is. It's gentle and it's both a physical and chemical exfoliant but it's not gritty. It makes your skin feel so smooth and brightens your skin. I love it!
This is a great exfoliant for all skin types, especially sensitive skin. I have sensitive, oily, acne prone skin and a lot of facial scrubs cause painful breakouts. This product does not break me out. It doesn't smell funny. It feels so nice when it's applied to the skin. It's not overly drying like a lot of products with salicylic acid. If you are looking for a non-abrasive facial scrub, give this a try.
This scrub is perfect for all skin types. It smells like rice, it's powder like and gets foamy when mixed with water. It lasts a very long time. The only con would be the pricing of this product. I say it's worth it, though
Even though this is an exfoliate it is still soft and not a harsh abrasion. Leaves skin soft and a nice clean glow. It also helps to work away any acne or blemish.
the perfect exfoliant
One of the reasons I like this exfoliant is because there aren't abrasive particles in it like most other exfoliants. You mix the product yourself before you apply to turn it from powder to paste. I use this every other day or so before bed to keep my skin radiant and even in tone. It has never dried out my skin. I would definitely recommend it.
I need a good exfoliant because i have dry skin yr round but most scrubs are too harsh for my sensitive skin..not this one. Its amazing. The first time i tried it i thought it wouldnt do much since the paste it makes when you mix it with water doesnt have the usual grainy pieces..but it exfoliates and polishes and leaves my skin radiant:)
Love Love Love!!!! I use it everyday (sometimes with a pump of their EA 35) and its great. Be careful not to get it too close to the hairline because it could be a pain to get out but other than that I love it.
I received this product at an LA Beautylish event back in March and I absolutely love it. It took me a while to figure it out and I made a mess with the powder, but after the silly confusion I exfoliated my face with this powder and it left me skin like new. Everytime I exfoliate with this product it leaves my skin soo soft. This is definitely a must try and I am actually all out so I need to buy more!
