I haven’t tried a massive amount of Dermalogica products, I can’t find it any of the stores here and I don’t like buying things completely blind from the Internet so I was quite excited to receive Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant in last months glossy box, and then again in my Selfridges lucky bag, particularly because I’d been on the hunt for an exfoliator, the cold weather is wreaking havoc with my skin and it needed a good old scrub down to get rid of the dry bits. This product is a rice based exfoliator that you mix with water to create a paste and then buff into the skin to exfoliate. I think the daily element of this rings true, this is a reasonably light exfoliator that you could definitely get away with using on a daily basis which because it wasn’t what I was initially looking for, I thought I didn’t like it but after using it alongside my Antipodes Rejuvenation exfoliator (review coming shortly) I actually really liked this.
I’d never used a powder to paste type exfoliator before and I quite like it, it’s quite unique and it’s definitely a good selling point, it’s a little bit tricky trying to get your hands wet and then opening the lid without powder flying everywhere and it not being a stressful experience, my tip – open the lid (carefully, because it the powder does try and shoot everywhere!) before you wet your hands to create the paste otherwise you’ll want to cry, like me. You don’t need a massive amount of powder, just a squirt, I then rub this all over my face working it in, it doesn’t have a grainy texture particularly so it feels more like a cleanser but it does work, my face feels nice and soft after using.
Would I buy this again – probably! I like this, I wouldn’t recommend it as a hardcore exfoliator but it’s great to use day to day, it is quite pricey at around £29 for 75g but it does make your skin look and feel lovely.
Have you used this? What are your thoughts?
