Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant review face scrub exfoliant male skincare Caulfield's Counter men's grooming

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant Ingredients List review male skincare men's grooming Caulfield's Counter

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$$$$ ($40-$50 for 2.6 oz) – Available at Dermalogica, Drugstore.com, and Ulta.
Scent: faint citrus-like fragrance.
I Like: the mild grittiness.  Makes it an ideal face scrub for sensitive skin.  Also contains salicylic acid, which helps keep acne and ingrown hairs at bay.
Not a fan of: the paraben ingredients.

Ingredients: Microcrystalline Cellulose, Talc, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Disodium Lauryl Sulfosuccinate, Sodium Lauroyl Glutamate, Colloidal Oatmeal, Oryza Sativa Bran (Rice), Oryza Sativa Starch (Rice), PCA, Allyl Methacrylates Crosspolymer, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Limonene, Methylparaben, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Allantoin (Comfrey Root), Salicylic Acid, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Peel Oil (Grapefruit), Papain, Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra Root Extract (Licorice), Cyclodextrin, Melaleuca Altemifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil (Tea Tree)

Dermalogica’s Daily Microfoliant may be the best face scrub for those with sensitive or acne-prone skin.  This product differs from traditional exfoliants as it comes in powder form.  All you need to do is add water to activate the scrub.  It’s very gentle with a slightly noticeable grittiness.  While this exfoliant is marketed for daily use, I tend to use it about two to three times a week to help keep pores clear.  Dermalogica’s Daily Microfoliant comes with a hefty price tag, but a full-size 2.6 ounce bottle should last you at least six months.

Lucky Tiger Face Scrub review ingredients list male skincare men's grooming Caulfield's Counter exfoliate

Lucky Tiger Face Scrub Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$ ($10-$20) – Available at Lucky Tiger, Amazon, & Swanson Vitamins.
Scent: citrus with a hint of honey.
I Like: the subtle scent.  Effectively gets rid of dead skin and debris.  Great for before shaving
Not a fan of: the sodium laureth sulfate and BHT ingredients.

Gently exfoliating once or twice a week can help keep your complexion clear.  Face scrubs lift debris and dead skin cells that may be trapped in pores.  Lucky Tiger Face Scrub works particularly well for me before I shave.  The scent is a pleasant, uplifting blend of citrus and honey.  It contains some great natural ingredients including jojoba oil, green tea, hibiscus, borage oil, and honey.  Those with sensitive skin take note: the product’s exfoliating bits are not very fine, so you have to be extra gentle when scrubbing your skin.

Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser review face wash normal oily skin Caulfield's Counter skincare beauty style

Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser

Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser ingredients review face wash normal oily skin Caulfield's Counter skincare beauty style

Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $ (under $10) – Available at Drugstore.com, Walgreens, and Ulta.
Scent: hard to describe “masking fragrance.”
I Like: how relatively gentle the cleanser is.  Low foaming.
Not a fan of: the sodium laureth sulfate and paraben ingredients.  Don’t care for the synthetic scent.

Cetaphil’s Daily Facial Cleanser is a good face wash to start with if you’re new to skin care.  It’s fairly inexpensive and much gentler on your skin than your typical bar soap.  This product is made for people with normal to oily skin, so if you have overly-sensitive skin, then I suggest using a face wash that is fragrance-free and made without sodium laureth sulphate, a known skin irritant.  What I like most about Cetaphil’s Daily Facial Cleanser is that it’s a clear, low-foaming gel that doesn’t dry out the skin too much.  I found the synthetic fragrance a little off-putting, but not unbearable.  Give this product a try if you’re tired of using that bar of Dial on your face.
