Exfoliating is a step in my skincare routine that I really value. I was quite impressed by the reviews that the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant received so I picked it up in the travel size version. The Daily Microfoliant is a rice-based powder formula that activates upon contact with water releasing Papain, Salicylic Acid and Rice Enzymes that micro-exfoliate dead cells. This exfoliator also helps to balance uneven skin pigmentation and also calms the skin thanks to the blend of Green Tea, Ginkgo and Colloidal Oatmeal that is in it. It is gentle enough to use on a daily basis but I have only been using it a couple of times a week and I do find it very effective in exfoliating the skin without leaving it dry. It leaves my skin feeling very soft and ready for the next products in my routine. You dispense about a half-teaspoon of the powder onto very wet hands and create a creamy paste by rubbing hands together. Then apply it to the face in circular motions, avoiding the eye area. Do this for one minute then rinse thoroughly with water.
This exfoliator might not be preferred by those of you who are more accustomed to a more gritty exfoliator but I think those of you who have sensitive skin will enjoy how gentle it is on the skin. For me, this is the best exfoliator that I have used and I am definitely keeping it in my skincare routine.
