Thanks to iFabbo I got to try out Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant ($52 - 2.6 oz). This is a micro exfoliant that is gentle enough for everday use yet powerful enough to encourage cleaner and more supple looking skin.
"Gentle, daily use exfoliating powder for all skin conditions. Unique Rice-based powder formula activates upon contact with water, releasing Papain, Salicylic Acid and Rice Enzymes that micro-exfoliate dead cells, instantly leaving skin smoother and brighter."
Microcrystalline Cellulose, Magnesium Oxide, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Sodium Lauroyl Glutamate, Colloidal Oatmeal, Disodium Lauryl Sulfosuccinate, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Starch, Allantoin, Papain, Salicylic Acid, Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, PCA, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Populus Tremuloides Bark Extract, Cyclodextrin, Lauryl Methacrylate/Glycol Dimethacrylate Crosspolymer, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Limonene, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Peel Oil, Citric Acid, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891) , Hexylene Glycol.
The powder comes in a white shaker bottle that has two small holes at the top.
How to use:
Sprinkle the fine white powder into the palm of your hand. about a quarter size will do then add a lot of water to bring the powder to frothy consistency. Then just massage on your skin for at least 1 minute. Once dry add more water if desired and continue to rub or allow to sit on the skin for a minute more to maximize efficacy. To see this process in action check out their video:
After using my skin feels soft and velvety. I find that it calms the appearance of acne inflammation-- a problem I have been recently experiencing because of another product I'm also testing out. So it really helps to have this around. I've been using it on my clean face after I've done my cold water rinse.
+ Don't leave it in the bathroom or it will ruin the product
+ So powdery, it floats away if you're not careful
+ Not a heavy duty exfoliant.
+ Doesn't dry out skin
+ Helps alleviate redness
+ Gentle enough for daily use and to completely remove makeup
