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.

Zirh Erase Aftershave Relief Tonic Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★☆
Price: $$$$ ($30-$40) – Available at ZirhBeauty.com, Beautybar.com, and Amazon.
Scent: Subtle classic barbershop aftershave smell with a hint of citrus mixed in.
I Like: how the tonic soothes razor burn. Made from witch hazel, not alcohol. Pleasant masculine fragrance.
Not a fan of: the price. I’m accustomed to paying more for moisturizers, not toners.

Zirh’s Erase Aftershave Relief Tonic is one the few post-shave splashes I can recommend as it does not contain alcohol.  The calendula and chamomile ingredients are effective at soothing razor burn.  I’m not so sure about how well Zirh Erase works to treat razor bumps and ingrown hair.  It comes in a masculine-looking bottle – the dispenser has a small hole, which allows you to use the tonic sparingly.  One bottle should last you about 3-4 months with normal use.  This product does not moisturize so you’ll need to complement it with a face lotion.

Buy this product while you still can.  The Zirh brand is going away soon 😦
