This unique, rice-based enzyme powder activates upon contact with water, releasing Papain, Salicylic Acid and Rice Enzymes to smooth the skin and accelerate cell renewal.
I admit it. I am an exfoliant junkie. Give me a product that makes me feel like I'm scrubbing my face off, well at least the dead skin cells anyways, and I will be a happy woman. Now that my knowledge about proper skincare is expanding, so is my own personal at-home skincare regime. I have since traded in my Apricot Scrub for Dermalogica's Daily Microfoliant.
Daily Microfoliant is a product that all different skin types and conditions can use on a regular (even on a daily) basis. Daily Microfoliant is a physical exfoliant. It's made up of a rice-based enzyme powder that when added to water, eats away the dead skin cells on the face. Even just after one use, you'll notice that your face is smoother and brighter. Trust me, you don't want dead skin cells hanging out on your face. A build-up of dead skin cells can eventually cause breakouts and congestion. Who wants that on their face?
It's easy to use. As soon as you finish washing your face, pour only a half-teaspoon of Daily Micro into your wet palms. Add a splash of water and rub the product into the palms of your hand until you see it start to lather. Add the lather to your face. Let the Daily Micro sit on your face for 2 to 3 minutes while the enzymes go to work. Then rinse.
A little bit goes a long way with Daily Micro so make sure that you only use a half-teaspoon of product for each use. Any more than that and you're just wasting product.
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!
I am not a fan of Dermalogica's line for myself, because of the lavender used in their products. This gave me severe allergic reaction. The Microfoliant is the only product I can use and I love it. After using it, my skin is extremely soft. The scrub is gentle and effective (not harsh) great for daily use. I wish it was more affordable.
this line broke my skin out something terrible. if u have sensitive skin i would first try some on ur wrist first and wait over night. i looked like oatmeal for a week!
amazing product. not harsh on my skin but polishes, exfoliates and leaves my skin radiant. the only down fall is the price but if you shop around you can find for a lot cheaper. thanks loose button for originally introducing me to this product.
Liberation for your face! It will pull everything out of your skin that you did or didn't know was there.
I mix it in a small rubber mixing bowl with a fan brush and then use that same fan brush to apply it with. I usually spread it onto my face down my neck and on my chest. I go over the micro mix with a round facial brush to drive it deeper and add to the exfoliation process. Rinsing with water and follow up with Dermalogica's Dermalogica Multi-Active Toner and a sun-screen.
You will start to see that the more you use the Daily Microfoliant the brighter and more smooth your skin will be.
The ingredients in this product are fantastic and effective. My skin needs serious exfoliation and I had tried everything from glycolic acid to PTR buffing beads to DIY sugar scrubs...nothing was as effective as my tried and true St Ives Apricot Scrub. Much like Kathleen N., though, I needed to find something to replace it as I was living in denial of it pulling at my pores and causing more harm than good.
I was ecstatic at the results after my first few uses and thought I had definitely found my new HG, however, I will say tragically, I got a bit of water inside of the container, resulting in it clogging and it was over. I bought another in hopes I'd be a little less clumsy with it but again, my hand still wet from washing my face got ever so little bit of water inside when putting the cap back on. This is definitely an amazing product with amazing results, but I am maybe just too clumsy for a long term relationship with it.
Best exfoliator for sensitive skin!! I love how this makes my skin feel so smooth without irritation and redness. Worth the price. Purchase it. You won't regret it. Works well as a paste or foam.
I found this product really nice and easy to use but it doesn't work to too well! I would recommend it but not for the use of getting rid of spots!
