Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant

I haven't been using a cleanser on my face, mainly because I haven't yet found one to suit my combination / sensitive skin.
I have, however, been using this little star..
I received a sample pot in a Glossybox beauty box a while ago, and even after continued every day use it has lasted me absolutely ages!!

Dermalogica say..
'Our number one exfoliant! Gentle, rice-based exfoliating powder activates upon contact with water, releasing Papain, Salicylic acid and Rice enzymes that micro-exfoliate dead cells, instantly leaving skin smoother and brighter. Formulated without artificial fragrances and colours.'

This product, for me, is a lot more gentler than an exfoliant, it's almost as gentle as a cleanser, hence why I've been using it in place of one. I can't explain how gentle it feels on your skin, yet knowing it is doing all the work of an exfoliator - without the harsh 'scrub like' feeling - was a big positive. It's gentle enough to be used every day, with no tight feeling, or drying out the skin. My skin always feels polished and smooth after use.
A little goes a long, long way with this product, as I mentioned before, it has lasted me a good while. Just a small amount of powder is needed, add a drop of water (or even just wet hands), rub together to create a paste like consistency and gently massage in circular movements to the skin, then rinse. My skin has felt fantastic since I've been using it, clear, bright and healthy, and I'm absolutely gutted I've ran out. 
It takes a lot for me to find skin care products that suit and work well on my skin, without bringing me out in breakouts or setting my sensitive skin off, so when I do, I want to continue using it. But at a price of £40.30, it's not something I can justify picking up. That said, a full size bottle will last forever, so I'm sure it'll be money well spent. For now it'll have to go on my Wishlist for a future pay day purchase. :)

Would I recommend it?
Oh yes! It suits all skin types. Dermalogica are top dogs in providing great skincare, so it's a brand you can truly trust. Give it a go!

Would I repurchase it?
As I said, it's going straight on my Wishlist. For now, I'm keeping my eyes and ears open for any dupes out there. If you know of any, let me know!!

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant is available online at and in selected salons (see website for details) at £40.30.

Have you used this lil beauty before? What did you think?
