I received the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant sample in the newly launched Sample Bar "glam pack" almost a month ago. Sample Bar are New Zealand's first beauty box subscription service similar to: Birchbox, Glossybox, LustHaveIt and She Said Beauty. The October box was full of lot's of product's I'd either not heard of or wanted to try so I shall review each product in the next few week's.
I mentioned on Twitter yesterday afternoon that I was thinking of trying the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant and a couple of twitter follower's said they liked it and another one asked me about it because she almost bought it.
I haven't-used-it-long-enough to write a proper review, but I liked how my skin felt after the first application. I used it again tonight after Cleansing with Bioderma and my face feels: soft, deep cleaned, yet it's not become tight or felt dry, plus I've had no sensitivity.
How do you use Dermalogica Microfoliant?
Firstly, cleanse with your own choice of face cleanser (I've ditched using makeup wipes during the initial cleansing stage to remove makeup and reach straight for my Bioderma), once cleansed I mixed a little of the Microfoliant in my palm with water as per the directions and applied it thinly across my face, forehead, nose and chin (avoid eye area). Once applied leave for 1 minute, rinse off with water.
Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant is a gentle daily use Rice-based powder that microfoliates for smoother, brighter skin.
Tip: The microfoliant is a very fine powder so be gentle, a little powder goes a long way!
How much Dermalogica Microfoliant do I need to use?
I'd say a 50 cent coin (50p) size or less. After rinsing the microfoliant I applied Aveeno SmartEssential's Night Moisturiser. This is a quick routine for even the busiest ladies juggling work, life and family.
I'm going to use all of the products I've mentioned above in my skincare routine for the next week to see if the results are the same or better. So far, I'm really impressed with the Microfoliant. I have 13g so I'm seriously thinking, if this sample can last another 6 night's and I like the results, I'm probably going to purchase the full size, which you can buy from Sample Bar's website or from Dermalogica NZ.
The 75g size cost $134 from Dermalogica and Sample Bar's websites.
