REVIEW: Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant - Best in Beauty 2015...

Crikey, it's beautyheaven Best In Beauty Awards time again! This time last year I was voting, and racking my brains over my entry in this awesome annual competition, and to my absolute delight, I was one of the lucky winners  To be fair I won't be entering again this year, but I'll sure be letting beautyheaven know which ones are my faves from the list of nominations. I still have a stack of long overdue reviews of the fabulous products that came in my prize pack, so here goes with the amazing Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant - this is a long forgotten love, and one I'm so grateful that bh reminded me of, plus it's been nominated again this year... 
I first discovered this ever so gentle skin smoother, soother and brightener back in 2013 - from memory I collected several freebie sample bottles from some magazine covers, and was 100% sold after the first use. It's a very fine rice-based powder that you mix with water into a creamy paste, gently massage into your skin for approximately 1 minute, and then rinse off...
Apart from Rice Bran, other ingredients include Green Tea, Gingko and Colloidal Oatmeal, along with Licorice Root, Allantoin and Papain. It's honestly the gentlest "scrub" I've ever had the pleasure to use - gentle enough to use every day, even on my ancient face...

Containing no artificial colours or fragrances, it has a kind of oatmealy scent, but it's very subtle. Just LOVE how my face feels after a dose of this magical powder - amazingly smooth and silky, and the overall texture looks more refined. Best of all there's not even a hint of pink when I step out of the shower, or any other visible sign of irritation ...
No wonder it won last year, and I'll put my money on it scoring another accolade this time around - I'll certainly be voting for it! Thank you again beautyheaven and Dermalogica for reminding me that I need this in my life on a permanent basis 

This is definitely my HG exfoliator - would love to know yours...

Did you enter the beautyheaven Best in Beauty Awards 2016 competition?

Take care of you,

  1. I've only tried a couple Dermalogica products and love them! This is something I would love too, it sounds like my favourite DIY facial scrub (that I still need to post about), only this has many more wonderful ingredients. I'm going to check it out! TFS xoxo

  2. Thanks for another great review! I have dabbled with a few different exfoliators but am yet to find my holy grail so I think I definitely need to give this one a go! It sounds so gentle and with no nasties will be perfect for my skin :) x

    1. Well worth seeing if you can nab a sample Marisa - it's certainly not cheap, but it does last a while, and it's brilliant. Not many products get 5/5 stars on beautyheaven, but this one does, and there's 271 reviews! xxx

  3. I'm not a fan of harsh scrubs, so it's great to know about the gentler options out there!

    1. Can't imagine this one giving anyone any trouble Renu - the powder is so incredibly fine, and yet it does make a difference xx

  4. I love this product too. The other Dermalogica exfoliator I love is their Age Smart Thermofoliant.

  6. Ohh I used to use this years ago, haven't even thought about it since then lol At the moment I am loving the elucent whitening exfoliating cleanser and I use that every day because it's gentle too. Jackie (Lipstick, Lattes & Louboutins)

    1. Same as me Jackie - the skin care market is so overwhelming that I find I often "forget" about things that I love because there's just so much out there to try! Delighted the elucent one is working for you - I might give it a try as it's bound to be less expensive xxx

    1. This would be ideal for you Tal - so many gals have mentioned in their reviews that they've had much skin grief from other products, yet this one is actually a dream come true xxx

  8. This is my Favourite exfoliator, I love it, but it is expensive so I am looking for its dupe.

    1. Lol Mel, I bet your beauty cupboard is bursting at the seams! I hardly ever get sent anything from companies, but I buy LOTS so I know how it goes with products languishing on the shelf xxx
