I would buy this


This made my skin feel so clean.

Clovis, Ca.


Love it!


I use this product almost every morning and I can definitely see how much brighter and alive my skin feels!

Best exfoliant I've tried! (And I've tried a lot)


I use this product about 2-3 times a week. I use it in the shower so I can also use it on my neck and shoulders. I've never reacted well to chemical exfoliating and had been satisfied using Origins Modern Friction for a long time. Then I got free Dermalogica samples of the daily microfoliant and the superfoliant. Never going back! I used up both samples (which took a while, actually) and have repeatedly ordered this one ever since :) (Also, I found the daily microfoliant and the superfoliant to be equally effective for my skin, the micro is just a little cheaper)

Best face scrub for sensitive skin


I love how gentle this face wash it. I feel like it really helps get off makeup and clean your face without being too harsh. I use this every single day and would definitely recommend!!

Eureka, CA




Love it



I love everything about dermologica!


The microfoliant is amazing and paired with the rest of the cleanser and moisturizer in the kit it leaves my face feeling so fresh and soft and clear! Heals breakouts fast and also has helped diminish my hyperpigmentation and sun damage and decreased pore size!

Syracuse, New York


In love!


I'm so happy with this product! I have very oily skin and very congested pores, but my skin is also super sensitive. Exfoliating is the key to preventing breakouts, but every method of exfoliation seems to cause a ton of irritation and redness... except for this!!! My skin is so smooth and clean afterwards but also calm and bright! I've noticed a huge improvement in tone and texture, so I will definitely keep this in my skin care arsenal!

San Pedro




I love this product. Its handsdown my holy grail of exfoliating. Gentle enough to use every day yet effective. Skin feels amazing afterwards.

Melbourne, Australia


The BEST exfoliant ever


I can't live without this exfoliant. It's a MUST in my daily routine. The difference it makes in my skin is amazing - brighter, healthier, tighter, fresher skin is revealed after it polishes away dead skin cells.



Gentle, yet effectice


I really like this product, it's gentle enough to use often on the days I don't use the prep scrub and it leaves my skin very soft.

For oily skin (also acne prone) which woul dbe better suited for me: microfoliant or superfoliant? I understand that they are chemically different but I'm not sure which one to try, the microfoliant sounds helpful for acne, but the superfoliant sound like more of a deeper clean. Any advice? Thank you :)


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Since they are both exfoliants, they will both help with cell turn over. Exfoliation helps prevent build up in the pore and build up in the pore leads to breakouts. If your skin is sensitive, Daily Microfoliant is the better choice. If your skin is mature, Daily Superfoliant is the ideal option. Kind Regards, Bernadette


Hi, is the 'Daily Microfoliant' safe to use during pregnancy?


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Please always check with your doctor. Kind Regards, Bernadette


is this product only meant to be used once a day, or can i use it morning and night?


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Please only use this once a day. Kind Regards, Bernadette


Should this product be used after washing your face or is it a stand alone cleanser?


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use Daily Microfoliant as your exfoliant after cleansing. Kind Regards, Bernadette


I have really sensitive skin, would this by okay for me to use?


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can try using it every other day to start. You can benefit from adding the Ultra Calming products to your regimen as well. Kind Regards, Bernadette


does your face need to be dry or wet when you apply the product. Thanks!


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. It should be wet. Use Daily Microfoliant once a day after cleansing. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Is this brand safe to use during pregnancy ? Mainly I want to know about this exfoliant, multi-active toner and calming gel ?


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Please do not use Daily Microfoliant while pregnant. You may prefer Skin Prep Scrub. Multi Active Toner and Calm Water Gel are safe. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Would this product help with hyperpigmentation? Can it be used for hyperpigmentation in the neck/chest area as well as on the face? Thanks!


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes, try this along with Power Bright. You can use the products for the face, neck and chest. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Which is better, the microfoliant or the superfoliant? Which one should I buy?


Hello Sophia, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Daily Microfoliant is gentle, for all skin types, and brightens the skin while preventing breakouts. It has Phytic Acid and Salicylic Acid. Daily Superfoliant is for normal to aging skin. It detoxes the pores with charcoal, 3 type of enzymes and Lactic Acid and Malic acid. It is an anti-pollution treatment product. Both are powder formulas that can be used every day. However, they are chemically very different. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Hi, I have recently started using this product every morning . However, my skin now feels tight and dehydrated. Is this to be expected when you first start using it (so should I persist?) or does this mean my skin is too sensitive for it?


Hello Louise, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Be sure to use Daily Microfoliant, once a day after cleansing. Follow with one of our hydrating mists and moisturizers for best results. You can also try using Daily Microfoliant every other day. Kind Regards, Bernadette
