Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant | Review

Sunday, 4 February 2018

Hi guys! Has it been a while or has it been a while?! Firstly I’d like to wish you all a very late happy new year. To say that 2017 was super busy for me, would be an understatement, hence why I have been so inactive on my blog. BUT I promise to be a lot more consistent with my blog this year. Especially with Instagram being such a let down in terms of interaction and the whole order of how posts are displayed, I just don’t get what they’re doing but I am using that as motivation to be a lot more consistent with my posts on here.
Thank you to all the lovely people that have stuck with me!

I have a pretty exciting post today. I was sent a bunch of things from Dermalogica and Influenster to test out and I was so happy when the package arrived because Dermalogica have been my absolute ride or die. If you read my very first skincare post, you’ll know that their Clear Start range had a huge hand in clearing up my severe acne years ago.

I was kindly sent their Daily Superfoliant, Precleanse Balm, Special Cleansing Gel and the Skin Smoothing Cream.
I knew pretty much straight away that I’d love the Special Cleansing Balm because it is very similar to their Clear Start Breakout Clearing Foaming Wash (that was a right mouthful), so I won’t bore you with saying how great it is (again) because I love it just as much as I loved the Clear Start one, so if you would like to know my thoughts on that, check out my good old skincare post.

If you’re a fan of double cleansing like myself, you will absolutely love the Precleanse Balm. This stuff is incredible at getting deep into your pores as well as taking all the gunk off the surface of your skin before you do your everyday cleansing routine. It is a balm that turns into an oil, but isn’t heavy at all. This product comes with a cleansing mitt, which is just incredible. Now, I know there’s a tonne of different mitts on the market, but this one is very gentle on the skin. I can’t fault this product, it’s gentle enough to use around the eye area, it doesn’t strip your skin of it’s natural oils and it even gets rid of waterproof makeup!

The Skin Smoothing Cream is the perfect everyday moisturiser. It does exactly what it says on the tin (or tube in this case). Once applied this cream pretty much keeps my skin hydrated all day or until I cleanse again. I have very oily skin but this didn’t feel heavy on my skin and it didn’t cause any sensitivity or breakouts. This wasn’t a product that I had used before, so as always I was a little hesitant. I have very sensitive skin so when I find products that work for my skin, I usually tend to stick with them. And I can confirm this will be one of those products.

I have been using these products for a while now and although most of the time I used them together, step-by-step; I did ocassionally mix and match them with other skincare products and they worked just as well as they did together.
But there is one product that was my absolute favourite out of the lot (although that is a bold statement because the love I have for Dermalogica is very real), if you read the title of this post, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about and that is, of course, the Daily Superfoliant. I am beyond obsessed with this and I have been using it religiously ever since I received it. It is absolute magic in a bottle. My skin has never looked as good as it does today. Having suffered from severe acne in my teen years, I had scars and an uneven texture to my skin where I had picked my spots (don’t ever pick your spots kids!). The way this product works is incredible, its a powder that you basically rub between your hands and it turns into an exfoliating paste, it activates with a little water. A lot of people think that exfoliating everyday isn’t great for your skin, which in most cases it isn’t. That’s where this product comes in. It’s gentle enough to use daily, but if you have skin that is even more sensitive than mine you can use it every other day. It contains charcoal, which is known for it’s purifying properties. It also contains Niacinamide, Red Algae and Tara Fruit Extract, which shield your skin against the damage that pollution causes.
Dermalogica were not messing around when they said this products resurfaces your skin to the smoothest it could possibly be. You can pretty much see the effects of this product after one use, so you can only imagine what it could do for your skin after a while.
My skin not only feels smooth but it also looks smooth. This product has helped make my acne scars a lot less visible and it hasn’t caused any breakouts, redness or sensitivity. It isn’t drying and it doesn’t strip your skin of its moisture. My skin tone is even, which was a huge concern of mine because of how severe my acne was and although I don’t wear makeup daily, I can see that I wouldn’t need a lot of coverage when wearing it ocassionaly. The Daily Superfoliant is a product that I will definitely be repurchasing, it has worked absolute wonders on my skin. I’ve tried products that have cost me double the amount this costs, but didn’t do anything for my skin, so in my opinion, this stuff is worth it’s weight in gold. If you haven’t tried anything from Dermalogica before, this is the perfect product to start with, especially if you’ve already got a pretty solid skincare routine but you’re missing that little something!

Dermalogica is a brand that is gluten free, vegan, paraben free, cruelty free and they don’t use artificial fragrances or colours (what’s not to love?!)

How I use the products:
I start off with the Precleanse Balm. I wet my face and rub a small amount of the product between my hands and rub it all over my face and eyes. I then use the cleansing mitt to really rub the product into my skin and into all those places our hands wouldn’t necessarily reach. I then wash the product off and use the Special Cleansing Gel and rub some product between my hands and then all over my face and neck. Once I’ve rinsed this off, I tap some of the Daily Superfoliant onto my wet hands (a little goes a long way) and rub my hands together to activate the product and turn it into a paste, I then rub this all over my face and neck in circular motions, avoiding the eye area. I do this for about a minute. I then rinse this off and pat my face dry with a clean towel. I finish off with the Skin Smoothing Cream.

I really hope you guys enjoyed this post. I shall see you in the next one!

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. But as always my opinion is 100% honest.
