I would buy again


I use this product after using a gentle cleanser. I keep it in the shower and use it 3-4 times a week, even though it's okay to use everyday. This just works for me. It's gentle and the product breaks down even more when water is added and it doesn't feel like it's damaging the skin at all. I use it for its salicylic acid and rice properties cause I do get the occasional breakout.

this really works


My skin begin to shine after a week. This opens the pores and makes smooter skin ever...



Skin softening!


Love the daily microfoliant - I use it before bed each night, followed by the active moist moisturizer, and my skin feels wonderful in the morning. The daily microfoliant is safe for two uses a day, morning and evening. It feels like a facial in a box!

Such a difference


I used to use harsh, 'beaded' exfoliants. I thought they worked better. But after years of doing so, I felt that my dry, sensitive skin was being stripped too much. After purchasing a few other great products from Dermalogica, a rep recommended this exfoliant for daily use. I love it!! It is something I actually look forward to using each morning! I feel that my skin looks so much better! It certainly feels so much better!!

Irvine, CA


I would buy this product again


This product is simply amazing!!! I've never had anything makes my skin shine as bright as this little wonder! I use it everyday and my face shines bright all day long!



Gentle and Effective


I received this as my free gift and I will be purchasing the full size. Easy to use, not harsh on my face. Allows my other serums to really penetrate into my skin.

Can this be used while using the overnight retinol


Hello, Please do no use any exfoliants while using retinol. Thanks


Can I use the night serum after using this product? Thanks


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes, you can use a mist, serum and moisturizer after exfoliating. Kind Regards, Bernadette


I started using the daily microfoliant, and I'm breaking out. My chin, which was never a problem area for me, is now full of tiny bumps a some white heads, and I have texture around my nose, also something I never had before. I don't know if this is my skin purging and I should be patient and keep using it daily, or this is just not good for my skin and I should stop using it. how can I tell? How long should it take for my skin to get over the purging period and start getting better?


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. It is normal for the skin to purge in the beginning. To confirm, Daily Microfoliant should only be used once a day after cleansing and before toner and moisturizer. You can also try using it once every other day. Kind Regards. Bernadette


Is this product good for acne and pores? I have breakouts at the moment, so those this product help with clearing pores, and reducing acne, for clearer skin?


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica.Daily Microfoliant is gentle, for all skin types, and brightens the skin while preventing breakouts. It has Phytic Acid and Salicylic Acid. Kind Regards, Bernadette


Hello - is it sufficient to use the pre cleanse followed by the micro exfoliant? Or do I need to use an additional cleanser as well?


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You may use Precleanse, Special Cleansing Gel and Daily Microfoliant. Kind Regards, Bernadette


For oily skin (also acne prone) which woul dbe better suited for me: microfoliant or superfoliant? I understand that they are chemically different but I'm not sure which one to try, the microfoliant sounds helpful for acne, but the superfoliant sound like more of a deeper clean. Any advice? Thank you :)


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Since they are both exfoliants, they will both help with cell turn over. Exfoliation helps prevent build up in the pore and build up in the pore leads to breakouts. If your skin is sensitive, Daily Microfoliant is the better choice. If your skin is mature, Daily Superfoliant is the ideal option. Kind Regards, Bernadette


Hi, is the 'Daily Microfoliant' safe to use during pregnancy?


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Please always check with your doctor. Kind Regards, Bernadette


is this product only meant to be used once a day, or can i use it morning and night?


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Please only use this once a day. Kind Regards, Bernadette
