If you haven’t heard of Dermalogica’s Daily Microfoliant, then you must have been living under a rock. A skincare fave, and winner of multiple awards across the beauty industry, it’s loved by its fans for being a super effective, fine-grain scrub that leaves your skin glowing, brightened, and feeling as smooth as a baby’s bottom.
Dermalogica have now upped the ante with their new Daily Superfoliant which provides a deeper level of of exfoliation. Its combination of enzymes and AHAs, dissolve dead skin cells and Activated Charcoal purifies and removes environmental pollutants. They’ve also included Red Algae and Niacinamide (trendy ingredients) which have powerful antioxidant properties.
Using it is easy, tip half a teaspoon into very wet hands and create a creamy paste by rubbing your hands together. Then simply massage all over your face and rinse. The grey splatter can be a little messy, but I use mine in the shower, to avoid this. My skin instantly feels smoother after use and I feel that it cleanses deeply, removing make up, grime and rough skin with ease. My serums and moisturisers go on really well afterwards and it’s a much welcomed addition to my skincare routine.
I’ve been a huge fan of the original formula for these and the Daily Superfoliant doesn’t disappoint. If I’m honest, other than the colour, I don’t find the Daily Superfoliant that much different than the original! Yes, the ingredients differ, but I find that they both provide gentle exfoliation, can be used daily (although if you have sensitive skin, apply on alternate days, until your skin acclimatises) and feel exactly the same on my skin, giving the same results. I’ve been using it for approximately six weeks now and have no complaints. It’s a really good cleanser. and gets the thumbs up from me.
