It’s the labour day long weekend! Woo hoo! I love public holidays, getting paid to do nothing. Wish we could have more of them! I always look forward to labour day because Moomba is always on the same weekend which means I can have an excuse to eat potato twisties!! Yum!! Have you tried them? If you haven’t, you are missing out big time!! On a completely different topic, I would like to welcome you to my favourite exfoliator, the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant! Remember in some of my old posts, I talked about my dry flakey skin? After using this baby, I rarely have that problem anymore. I now understand why this is an award winning product.
Our number one exfoliant! Gentle, Rice-based exfoliating powder activates upon contact with water, releasing Papain, Salicylic Acid and Rice Enzymes that micro-exfoliate dead cells, instantly leaving skin smoother and brighter. Formulated without artificial fragrances and colors.
It’s my first time using an exfoliator in powder form. At the start, it was trial and error to determine the consistency which best suits me. After a few days, it was very simple. Just place about half a tea spoon of powder onto one hand, add a small amount of water and mix it together until you get a nice paste. Rub it on your face in circular motion for about a minute then wash off with water. As this is an exfoliator, you do this step after you cleanse your face.
How does a wet powder exfoliate your skin? From what I read, once the powder and water mixes, it releases Papain, Salicylic Acid and Rice enzymes that exfoliates dead cells, leaving your skin silky smooth.
I was a bit iffy using this everyday as I’ve tried other “gentle” exfoliators and they were too harsh on my face, but this surprised me. It is gentle enough to use daily and I can feel and see the difference it has made to my skin. It doesn’t leave your skin feeling tight or cause any irritations. This product is just awesome x2 lol. Dermalogica have recently decreased their prices by an average of 20%. This product now retails for $69, I know you might be thinking this is still quite expensive but one bottle does last a long time. I’ll definitely be purchasing this after my current bottle runs out, I loveee Dermalogica!!
Are you in love with Dermalogica as much as I am?
