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.

Natural one-two punch against acne: Burt's Bees Natural Acne Solutions Purifying Gel Cleanser and Daily Moisturizing Lotion

Combating acne can be an agonizing experience.  We prick and pinch blemishes only to realize such actions only worsen the situation – infection and scarring are common results.  There are so many acne treatment options available, but few of them actually seem to work.  When I was a foolish teenager, I used alcohol astringents to dry out my skin – not a smart move.  By drying out my skin, these products actually increased oil production, which led to even more pimples.  It wasn’t until I discovered and starting using skincare products with salicylic acid or willow bark that I began to see a noticeable change in my complexion.  Products with salicylic acid are readily available at your local drugstore.  Simply go to the acne-treatment aisle and look for lotions, gels, and washes with this effective ingredient – Neutrogena and Clean and Clear are just two easy-to-find brands that feature salicylic acid.  I prefer to use more natural products and have experienced positive results using the face wash and moisturizer from the Burt’s Bees Natural Acne Solutions line.  These products contain salicylic acid derived from willow bark.  With regular use day and night, I have maintained a clear complexion when using the gel cleanser and daily moisturizing lotion.  Whatever you do, remember to avoid products that contain alcohol.
