My longest relationship that I’ve been in, has been with my husband, we’ve been together for 9 years, married for almost 7 of those years. My second longest relationship has been with Dermalogica’s Daily Microfoliant, it’s been 7 years and we’re still going strong. I’ve come to seriously rely on this little baby, who’s always been there for me in my time of need, no questions asked. It’s the perfect relationship, no matter what I do or should I say, don’t do to my skin, my Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant is there to clean up the mess and make it all perfect again. No judgement! But this is how we are now, our journey didn’t start out this way.
I was one of the lucky few who had perfect skin throughout my teenage years! I had beautiful smooth, soft, blemish free skin. Fast forward a few years, to my early-20’s and suddenly that perfect, maintenance free skin that I’d come to love and rely on, had disappeared. In its place was, acne-proned, blemish covered, irritable sensitive skin. I had adult acne! My hectic work life, wedding planning stress, unhealthy eating and lack of sleep had left its effects on my skin. Clearly my skin was not cut out for climbing the corporate ladder or ready to get married! But I was, so I had to do something to get my skin there! And I needed to do it quite quickly as I was 4 months away from my wedding. I needed a hero, a skincare hero and that’s exactly what I found when I tried out Dermalogica’s Daily Microfoliant.
What Dermalogica says:
Dermalogica describes the product as ‘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. Our unique Skin Brightening Complex helps to balance uneven skin pigmentation while a super-soothing blend of Green Tea, Ginkgo and Colloidal Oatmeal helps to calm the skin, leaving it extraordinarily clear and refreshed. Gentle enough to use on a daily basis. Formulated without artificial fragrances and colours.‘
When the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant was first recommended to me by my skincare therapist, I was extremely apprehensive! I had tried a number products including a trip to the dermatologist, but nothing had worked.
So as I rubbed the powder with my wet go form a rough paste, I had zero expectations! Once I applied the rough paste to my face, I instantly noticed how quickly it turned smooth. And more I worked it in, the more smooth it became. As I rinsed the smooth paste of my face, I was little disappointed, there was no change in my skin. I thought about stopping but the skin therapist insisted that I should at least finish the bottle, I hesitantly agreed.
After using the product for a few weeks I noticed the following:
– my skin felt and looked a lot smoother
– the acne scars on my skin began to get lighter
– my acne proned areas became significantly less reactive
– my skin felt cleaner
– I had less black heads
After using the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant for 4 months:
– my skin felt and looked completely smooth, no bump in sight
– the acne scars had become so light that they had faded away
– my breakouts were few and very far between
– my visits to my skincare therapist were reduced from every 2 weeks to once in 2 months.
– my skin just felt and looked healthier
And just it time for my wedding, my skin was smooth and healthy!
Why 7 years on, do I still regard it as one of the best skincare products!
The Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant changed and improved my skin significantly. And although I don’t have an acne problem anymore, I still use the Microfoliant. Why you may ask? Well I may not have acne but I’m still exposed to everyday life. Stress, unhealthy eating and lack of sleep are still very apart of my everyday life. My skin isn’t as reactive as it once was, but I still get the odd breakouts that need to be smothered out.
During winter I get dry patches on my skin, the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant lifts the dry skin so quickly and efficiently to reveal soft, silky skin.
Plus, we’re all at risk for blackheads but luckily with the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant I keep them at bay.
So although the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant is no longer apart of my daily skincare regime, it’s still a huge part of my skincare regime. I’ve tried a number of skincare products and they all have their target concerns. But I’m yet to find another product on the market that targets most of my skincare concerns, the way Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant does. That’s why I believe, 7 years on, the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant is still one of the best products on the market.
Is it a Fab Favourite?
Yes, without a doubt! It’s an amazing product that does exactly what it says it does. The Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant, healed my acne scars, made my adult acne non-existent and restored my skin to its former glory. What more could a girl ask for, that’s why it’s definitely a Fab Favourite!
Would I recommend it?
Yes! This is definitely a must-have product!
I needed a skincare hero and I definitely found one in the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant. It’s gotten my skin and I over a lot of bumps! And seven years later, the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant is still part of my skincare regime. How many products are you still using, 7 years later?
