We Tried The Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant...Here's What We Thought

Have you heard? Dermalogica has just come out with a super-vamped version of the Daily Microfoliant...yes, we're talking about its older, wiser, and grittier sister, the Daily Superfoliant. Beauty bloggers and skincare aficianados everywhere are already raving about this incredibly powerful exfoliant, and with good reason - it gets the job done. We've asked a few of our beauty pros to give it a try, and we're ready to dish the dirty (or should we say clean) details.

What It The Daily Superfoliant?

This highly-active resurfacing Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant is similar to the Daily Microfoliant in that it scrubs away excess skin - with the additional bonus of fighting environmental and biochemical triggers known to cause accelerated aging. The advanced powder formula releases powerful enzymes, skin-smoothing alpha hydoxy acids and anti-pollution technology to purifiy the skin. It also includes activated binchotan charcoal to absorb toxins, and red algae to help protect from future damage. 

What It Does

You're already familiar with the Daily Microfoliant as an what sets the Superfoliant apart? Specifically designed to rid the skin of pollutants we encounter in our day to day lives (we're looking at you, city babes), the Superfoliant is a serious resurfacing agent for those looking to prevent fine lines and wrinkles. This isn't your typical sandpaper-esque exfoliant that feels like it's scratching your skin. Quite the contrary - it's actually fairly creamy and easy on the skin. Because of its charcoal properties, it removes the impurities (similar to an extraction) after you've already cleansed your face, all while making it baby soft.

Who Should Use It

Everyone can pretty much agree that this is a killer product for anyone looking to fight aging, although there are differing opinions on how often it should be used. While it is considered to be a daily exfoliant, those with sensitive or acne-prone skin should only be using it once per week max. If you've got fairly resilient skin, we still say use only every other day - it may otherwise create dryness and irritation.

How To Use It

Easy peasy - after you've cleansed your skin, pour about half a teaspoon of the Superfoliant in super wet hands and rub them together until you have a creamy paste. Apply in circular motions while avoiding the eyes. Massage gently for one minute (you NEVER want to press too hard on your face), then rinse with warm water.
