Review: Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant

I have a feeling I’m late in reviewing this winner product, because I think I’m one of the last person to try this. Putting that aside, I can see now why it had won awards and still a favourite among us skincare/beauty enthusiasts and beauty editors. It’s unique, it’s simple, it works!

DCF 1.0

At $83.50 a bottle, this is expensive. It will, however, last you a very long time. You only need half a teaspoon. In my head, I am imagining those traditional herbal Chinese medicine back in the days, where they usually gather up powdered medicine wrapped in papers. If you know what I mean, comment below.

Recommended for all skin types – I worried if it might have caused any reaction on my skin. Nope, it does not. Instead it is leaving my skin smooth and soft, and decongest any congested areas (such as my chin, nose and forehead or between my brows).

Rice-based powder formula is activated when in contact with water, that turns it into a paste. It micro-exfoliates your dead skin cells. Then rinse off. It is gentle enough to be used everyday, it really is.

Contains Papain (papaya enzyme), Salicylic Acid, Rice Enzymes, Green Tea, Ginkgo, Colloidal Oatmeal (you all know how I feel about Oatmeal – very soothing to my skin).

If you get a chance to try this, do try… I tell you the novelty does not wear off with me. Pouring these little grain of rice on to my palm and making it into a paste give me a little thrill. As I massage my skin with the paste I can happily say that I am cleansing and getting rid of my dead skin cells, revealing brighter, smoother skin.

Worried about how it smells? It does not smell very much of anything at all.





Judging from how much I have used, I think this 1 bottle could last me around 8 months. If you use it even more sparingly, say twice a week, it could even last you a year. Of course that depends on whether you use this every single day or twice a week.

PS: I use this after I have cleansed my face. This is an exfoliant, not a cleanser.

Dermalogica does provide sample sachet, so if you are curious and wondering whether to give this a try, it does not hurt to try. If you like it, that’s wonderful. If you don’t, then you’re not angry for having spent $80+ on it. I think all skincare companies or any companies should do samples.
