*Ahem* Please ignore the dirty clothes on the floor, im quite a messy person :P Let's get back to this review. One of Dermalogica's best products is their gentle scrub known as Daily Microfoliant. It's so gentle to the skin that it can be used daily. It's formualated with a skin brightening complex of aspergillus, grape fruit and liquorice that help to balance uneven skin pigmentation. It also uses smoothing blend of green tea, ginkgo and colloidal oatmeal that helps calm skin, leaving it extraordinarily clear and refreshed. Ah did u see "Oatmeal"? Yes i;ve told u in my previous post that Oatmeal is one of the best and gentle cleansing agent plus it's natural. Thumb up.
Having to pay so much for this product, i will definitely be a little more fussy on their product's quality and packaging. I personally dislike the dispenser as it can get quite messy and it's hard to control the amount needed. There should be a better way for dispensing the fine powder.
Lalala.. Slowly pour some of the powder out...
As you can see, it comes in powder form and it's very fine. Looks like fine rice powder. It's a unique powder that activates upon contact with water and releases papain, salicylic acid and rice enzymes that micro-exfoliate our skin.
Directions of use:
- Dispense half a teaspoon of Daily Microfoliant into very wet hands and create a creamy paste by rubbing hands together.
- Apply to face in circular motions, avoiding the eye area.
- Massage gently for one minute, then rinse thoroughly.
- Follow with Multi-Active Toner or Soothing Protection Spray and your prescribed Dermalogica moisturizer.
The rice powder turns into a foamy texture when you rub it with wet hand and i don't like it when it's too dry after rubbing it at my face so i'll add a lil more water to make it wetter and more foamy. It's a little soapy i don't know why and because of this i sometimes skip my cleanser and straight away jump to this step after removing my makeups.
This product contains no artificial coloring or fragrance. It smells like a mixture or rice powder and clothes detergent to me and the smell stays on at my palm for quite some time. I have an oily combination skin and my mum has dry skin, and it's suitable for both of us.
It's a gentle scrub that is made for daily use but i use it only once or twice a week because of the extravagant price, retail price RM225 for 75g but it can last for quite long. You can get it at a cheaper price at any online shop and the one that I know and trustable is E-Garden.
I can see that my skin is more radiant and smoother after using this scrub, and it doesn't irritate my skin. I can't stop touching my skin after everytime i used this scrub as it leaves my skin baby soft. My skin doesn't feel tight after using it and thus it's very gentle. This is definitely a good scrub for those of you that can afford it out there. =)
