Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant

RATING (out of 5 stars): 4 stars

COST: $50 for 2.6 ounces

THE SKINNY: This is one of the strangest beauty products I've tried and loved. Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant is a rice-based enzyme powder that helps smooth and polish your skin.

Here's how it works: Wash your face as your normally would. While your face and hands are still wet, sprinkle about a half-teaspoon of the Daily Microfoliant power into one palm, then rub your hands together to create a paste. Apply the paste to your face, massage around and rinse clean.

Although I have some issues with the delivery system -- it's a little messy and can't be used in the shower without ruining the whole container of powder -- I love the result.


My face felt smooth and clean. Fresh. Ready for the day.

I think I really would pay $50 for this product.

The directions say this is safe enough to use every day. I think it would use it every few days -- both to make the sample last longer and because it does leave my face feeling a little tight. (A little moisturizer fixes it right up.)

KEEP OR TOSS: Keep. I do love the way this makes my skin feel.
