Day 21 – Look Fantastic The Beauty Secret Advent Calendar. Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant.

[3 more tonight and then we’re up to date! I’m sorry if there are any typos or other errors in these next few blogs. I’m having a vertigo attack at the mo so it’s a bit tricky]

I’m going to start this one by saying that one of the things I love about Lush is their forward thinking. I love that so many products have been completely rethought. I am a total convert to their solid shampoos for example. Since discovering them I’ve barely used liquids. Similarly, I love their new solid mouthwashes and some of their toothy tabs (solid toothpastes) are pretty impressive.

That said, I don’t like novelty for novelty’s sake. That brings me to day 21’s product. It’s Dermalogica’s Daily Microfoliant which is essentially powdered exfoliator. It’s a 13g tub worth around £7.50.


You pour a little into wet hands [use a little more water than you think you’re going to need] and mix into a creamy paste. Then you use it as you would a standard exfoliator. Apparently it’s a “unique powder that activates upon contact with water” which suggests that it needs to come in powder form but I can’t help being unimpressed by that. It’s a bit of a faff (if I wanted to be mixing my own beauty products I’d make them all from scratch!) and the paste dries fairly quickly on your skin which means that (for example) by the time you’ve finished exfoliating your forehead, it’s dried on your chin. Nope!

Let’s take that out of the equation. How does it perform as an exfoliator? Well, it’s okay. My skin doesn’t feel dry once I’ve rinsed all the product off and it feels soft, smooth and clean. So yeah, it’s okay. It’s not a game-changer though.
