Dermalogica Milkfoliant Review: Dermalogica Daily Milkfoliant

If you’re a loyal Dermalogica fan, the chances are you know all about the iconic, best-selling facial exfoliator: Daily Microfoliant. This cult status exfoliator was nothing short of cutting edge; it’s classed as the first-ever powder exfoliant. But now, there’s a new kid in town, Daily Milkfoliant, and it unveils significant skin smoothness after just one use for 90% of those who tried it.

Another powder exfoliator, Daily Milkfoliant works like the original to get you smooth, even skin that feels baby soft when you touch it. But the main difference is that it also supports your skin’s moisture barrier in the process. Keen to learn more? Read on to find out everything you need to know about the new-for-2022 Daily Milkfoliant exfoliator…


The Most Important Thing About Dermalogica Daily Milkfoliant Is…

If you’re new to Dermalogica, then this vegan exfoliator might be different to a lot of facial exfoliants you’ve used before, mainly because it’s a chemical, physical and enzymatic exfoliant in one – and it has an ultra-fine powder texture. All you have to do is add a drop of water and massage it into your skin for a smooth, polished complexion.

If you’re familiar with Dermalogica’s daily exfoliators, then the main thing you need to know about Daily Milkfoliant is that it delivers smooth, luminous skin just like the others, but it also supports the skin’s moisture barrier with a healthy dose of skin-plumping, skin-quenching hyaluronic acid.

Hero Ingredients:

Daily Milkfoliant features chemical exfoliants, which means that it uses acids to get rid of dead skin cells for a polished, renewed complexion. This might sound scary, but Dermalogica have made sure that all skin types can use this formulation without worrying about irritation – I’ve put it to the test, and I can confirm that it feels really gentle and non-irritating. The gently exfoliating powder partners grape extract and arginine, which is rich in Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) and Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs) together with coconut milk for skin that’s smooth and soft. The formula resurfaces skin using exfoliating papain extract, harvested from papaya, to buff away dead, dulling skin cells.

Naturally-derived saccharide works with atomised sea salt that’s rich in nourishing essential minerals, while hyaluronic acid supports the skin’s moisture barrier. To complete the mix, calming oat bran extracts containing nourishing lipids replenishes and helps soothe skin.


What Does It Feel Like?

Milkfoliant has a really fine powder texture, which works into more of a light milky lather so it feels more like a facial cleanser as you’re massaging it into your skin. It doesn’t feel gritty or harsh in any way.


What Does It Smell Like?

This powder exfoliator has a slight oaty smell, which is thanks to one of its key actives.


How Do You Use The Product?

As the name suggests, Dermalogica Daily Milkfoliant is suitable for everyday use. Dispense a small amount of the powder into wet hands and work it into a rich, creamy lather – you can add an extra splash of water if needed. Then, massage onto a clean face, taking care to avoid the eye area. Rinse well.

Make sure to always wear high SPF protection in the day when you’re using facial exfoliators.


What’s Special About The Design?

Dermalogica Daily Milkfoliant is housed in a bright blue bottle made from 50% recycled plastic. The top has a small hole in it to dispense the powder directly into the palm of your hand without excess waste or mess.
