Review: Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant

Ok so before I get started on this one I will warn you... This is a rave review! :) Yey I love it when I find a gem product and this is one of them for sure. 

So for those of you that are not familiar with this product, it is a gentle yet effective 'daily' exfoliant for the face, I say daily like that because I haven't been using it daily as I personally would find that too much for my skin at the moment so have been using it about twice a week instead. The only reason for this is because I've been suffering (lol I make it sound like a disease) recently with a breakout and don't want to do anything to it to make it worse which is why I've been avoiding manual (gritty) scrubs for a little bit. This is where this little beauty comes in.... 

This is like no other face scrub that you have used, it has no grains and comes in a powder form. How bizarre you might be thinking right now but trust me it works. This Rice based powder works its magic with the help of Salicylic Acid (a chemical exfoliant) and rice enzymes to gently buff away dead skin cells to reveal a bright more even complexion that feels like velvet to the touch. Lush! :) I really love it. With added ingredients like tea tree to help with troublesome skin, grapefruit extract to help with revealing a new skin, and licorice to even out skin tone this 'scrub' just works! All you do is add some water to the powder and rub until the powder turns to a lather and then foams, scrub your face then rinse and that's it! No scratchy bits for your face... 

Since using the product I have noticed that my breakout has calmed down and any marks left behind have cleared significantly quicker, I do use a Salicylic Acid based toner after using this by the way so that will also help with any discolouration but I still think this product contributes to that. This product also helps any flakiness and I think drier skin types would get along with this product as its not as harsh as a gritty exfoliant and as its taking away any dead skin cells and revealing newer skin so that any moisturiser is going to sink right in and you will definitely feel the benefits more so it's a win win in my eyes!

I use this usually on the evening by first cleaning my make up off with my make up remover. I then mix up the paste and gently rub around my face in circular movements concentrating on my more concerned areas and rinse off, give it a quick feel and then slap on some oil and maybe a moisturiser if I feel the need to or sometimes I use a serum and a moisturiser depending on what's going on with my face at the time.

So here is the only drawback on this product. The price. As you all may know Dermalogica isn't going to the cheapest skincare brand in the world and this product is probably pricier than your regular face scrub but in my own opinion is worth it. For 75g of product it is £38.50 however you only need to use half a teaspoon at a time and so would last you ages especially if you don't use it everyday. But that is the only downside I can possibly think of and to be honest I wouldn't think twice about purchasing this product again. Mainly because I know it will last me a long time. One other thing I would say is that if you wear fake tan this will clean it right off! So bear that in mind.

Overall I really like this product and it definitely does what it says on the tin! If you have been thinking of getting this product then I don't think you would be disappointed at all. 

Has anyone else tried this product or similar products? What did you think?
