Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant
Advantages: brighter skin
Disadvantages: a little expensive
For my Birthday this year I was given a range of Dermalogica products, Dermalogica is a skin care range that is a more expensive high end brand and it is something that you will not find in every high street health and beauty shop.
I did not use them straight away as I opted to use the other products that I had started first before opening the Dermalogica ones. I also thought it would be best to use all of the dermalogica products at the same time so that I could see if there was a visible difference.
The first product that I am reviewing is the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant and this is a facial product that is used to help brighten the skin by removing the dead skin and helping to remove the blemishes or blackheads that you may have.
Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant is a powder that when mixed with water it is activated, you then apply it to you skin, be careful as you only require a small amount of powder placed into the palm of your hand. I then add a small amount of water and then rub my hands together to activate the Microfiliant and then I rub it all over my face. I leave it to soak for a few minutes and I then get a flannel to help to wipe the product off.
Now for the technical part on how the product works, it is a rice based enzyme powder that activates when put in contact with water, then releasing Papain, Salicylic Acid and Rice Enzymes which then helps to smooth the skin and accelerate cell renewal.
The Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant comes in a white bottle with a black lid and the product name and details are all in black too, the box that the product comes in is a dark grey with white writing. The Dermalogica name runs down the right hand side of the bottle and box, as with all its other products so that the brand stands out.
The great thing about this product is that I have sensitive skin and with no artificial colours or fragrances. This is a product that I would recommend that you use daily to see the great results.
I have now been using this product for over 4 months and I can see a visible result as my skin is more vibrant, it is also a lot softer and those blemishes have almost disappeared. After all this time using it daily I still have just over a third of the product left.
Although I have been looking around to get in a new bottle and the only disadvantage that I can find with it is that it retails for around £40-£50, which I think is a little costly as I have never spent this much before on a product for my face before, but in seeing the result it is definitely one that I will purchase again.
When using the product make sure that you use a small amount and that you also leave the grains is as this is what helps with the removal of the dead skin sells as you rub the microfiliant into you skin. Also do not add to much water otherwise the product becomes too runny and I find hard to apply and work into the skin properly.
Overall a great product that works. I only gave it four stars after the shock I had from the price tag, but this was a welcome birthday gift. If you are purchasing this product I recommend that you shop around online as I have now found it available for under £40.
Summary: will use again
