Horrible itchy red aggressive rash


Don't buy this if you have sensitive skin. I bought this to add to my skincare routine. After the first use, the next morning I woke up with a bright red itchy rash on my face. I'm so upset. I love dermologica products. I use their face wash and toner. I wish someone would have warned me.





Been using this product for around two months now. I have adult acne prone skin. I use this product once a day or every other day depending if my face is dry from the acne boost spot treatment. But with sensitive skin this product does not irritate and leaves my face feeling amazingly soft and has reduced acne marks/redness in my skin.

This product works instantly!


this product helped me a lot! it instantly brightens my skin! i've paired this with the medibac clearing skin wash for my oily and teen acne prone skin and they together are unstoppable! i would recommend to any age group! it's all about the quality of facial products not quantity!

Best exfoliant for sensitive skin


If you have sensitive skin, this is the exfoliant for you. I prefer this to Derma's other exfoliant. This one is gentler. I mix it into my cleanser twice a week and it leaves my skin so smooth and soft!


Changed the exfoliating game for me


I use this product about 2 times a week, though it could totally be used daily, it leaves your skin so refreshed!





Love this product!! Works well with my skin.



i would purchase again but too expensive :(


i love this product, i did not use it daily even though it is gentle enough. i took a decent amount and mixed with water till it became quite foamy but still gritty, and applied all over focusing mostly on my chin and nose and it worked amazing! cleared up blackheads and improved texture and removes dead skin and brightened. I would love to purchase this again as it is the only scrub that i've truly enjoyed but it very expensive :( you are paying for the quality though that is for sure. couldn't say a negative thing about this!

What microfoliant powder would be better for me? What wash and cream would be best for me? I have large pores around my nose as well as my nose, these pores look a bit dark. The area around under my lips and over the chin, when stretched, I see white pointy pores. I am hispanic with medium color skin and 49 years old. Thank you so much for you suggestion!


do not use special cleansing gel. it has sulfates it will dry out your skin.


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Try Special Cleansing Gel, Daily Microfoliant, Antioxidant Hydramist, Multivitamin Power Serum and Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF 50. Kind Regards, Bernadette


Will this be ok to use with very dry sensitive skin on a daily basis? I want to use an exfoliant to use with the ultra calming wash to help my acne. Thanks


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. It is our most gentle exfoliant, but it is very effective. You can use it once a day after cleansing. Kind Regards, Bernadette


My son really likes the daily clean scrub but you are no longer making it, is this a comparable replacement?


Hello , Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. I apologize. That item has been discontinued to make way for our innovations. There is no direct replacement at this time. However, he may like Daily Microfoliant. Kind Regards, Bernadette


Hi there, is the daily microfoliant suitable during pregnancy?


Hello , Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. It is not. Try Daily Superfoliant instead. Kind Regards, Bernadette


I am from Africa specifically Ghana. Our weather is really sunny and hot. I have a sensitive skin, oily on my t-Zone and i breakout more often on both sides of my checks, i also have blackheads and my face usually gets dry on my checks and oily on my t-zone. And a bit of ageing lines. I've been using the ff: Dermalogica products which i purchased: AM: Clearing Skin Wash, Breakout Control, Oil Free Matt SPF30, PM: Precleanse, Clearing Skin Wash, Antioxidant Hydramist,(I use it only in the night because it makes me really oily when i use it in the morning), Ultra Calming Gel, Daily Superfoliant, Sebum Clearing Mask, Map 10, Daily resurfacer. Twice a week: I use the Daily Superfoliant, Sebum Clearing Mask, Daily Resurfacer. What will you recommend because i really want my face to look clearer and even toned with no acne. I really have spent loads of $$ on these products and it will be a shame not getting the best of results.


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. AM Clearing Skin Wash Multi Active Toner Oil Free Matte SPF 30 PM Precleanse Clearing Skin Wash Daily Microfoliant Multi Active Toner Overnight Clearing Gel Kind Regards, Bernadette


Is the Daily Microfoliant a physical, chemical or enzyme exfoliator?


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. It is all of the above! It has papaya enzyme, rice bran as a physical exfoliant and Salicylic acid as a chemical exfoliant. Kind Regards, Bernadette


can this product help to get rid of blackheads?


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes it can help to keep pores clear and target clogs in the pore. Use this once a day after cleanser, before mist, serum, moisturizer etc. Kind Regards, Bernadette


I used this product 3 days a week. is it safe to use this product with an AHA/BHA serum on the days I am not using this?


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. It would be at your discretion depending on what your skin can tolerate. Try a patch test to be sure. Kind Regards, Bernadette


hello while using this product I scrubbed too hard and burned my skin, should I keep using it or is it too harsh for my skin? and how long should I wait until I can resume using this product as I really like it and it is giving me great results?


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Do not exfoliant until the sensation and redness subsides. Kind Regards, Bernadette


What percentage of Salicylic acid is in this product?


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. It contains less than half a percent. Kind Regards, Bernadette
