This review talks about the Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant, an exfoliator from the well-known dermatological brand.
Dermalogica claims that this gentle exfoliator helps to fight one of the unavoidable monster “Pollution.” It helps in unclogging the pores, extracting all dirt and oil from the face. It is part of the “AGE Smart” anti-aging solution collection by Dermalogica.
AED 255.00 for 57 gm.
How To Use:
After cleansing your skin, take a half teaspoon of product on dry hands and mix with a few drops of water. Apply this paste all over your wet face in circular motions and massage for about a minute. Rinse off and dry your face.
My Experience with Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant:
Packaging: The product comes in a white sturdy plastic bottle, which is the standard dermalogica packaging. The dispenser comes as a hole on the bottle after you open the cap. The hole is in the shape of small “d.” The hole is covered with a sticker that says “remove seal.” So, at all times, you need to be careful and keep the bottle standing straight. Also, make sure to keep the sticker on always.
Texture: The exfoliator comes in a powder form, it’s a black- white/grey powder. It is a fine powder and does not feel coarse on the face or when touched.
Smell: It’s a fragrance-free product.
Ingredients: The list is not mentioned on the bottle, but it comes with the outer box in a separate manual. Activated charcoal is the anti-pollution agent and helps in extracting dirt/oil and unclogging the pores. Niacinamide, Red Algae and Tara Fruit Extract help the skin guard against the damaging effects of pollution.
I had randomly purchased this product from one of the salons in Abu Dhabi. The beautician was singing praises, which is normally not the case. I got attracted to this product as it was part of the “Age Smart” collection.
I was expecting it to be in the form of a cream but it turned out to be in a powder form, so initially I did mess with the amount of water I added. Make sure it’s not more than 5-6 drops.
Upon application, it doesn’t feel harsh on the skin. With the first use itself, I was impressed because my skin literally felt squeaky clean. I have whiteheads and this exfoliator worked amazingly well in getting rid of them.
The brand suggests that the exfoliator can be used daily; however, I was skeptical to use it everyday; I tried it on alternate days and did not face any issues, no breakouts or dryness.
As per Dermalogica, this product is helpful for sensitive skin as well but it is advised to be used on alternate days.
I have been using this exfoliator for a month now and it has left my skin clean. I am not sure if its working on my ageing signs though, I haven’t seen any change, probably I need to use it for another month or so to comment on that. It doesn’t leave my skin feeling dry after use. So overall, I am extremely happy with this product.
