Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant Review + Giveaway

Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant

I’ve been fizzing ever since I saw Dermalogica launch their Daily Superfoliant in the US a few months ago, because I really enjoy exfoliating my face. I know that might sound strange, but I’ve always loved it because it leaves my skin feeling cleaner and fresher, and looking brighter. Anyway, I waited for months to try the Daily Superfoliant, and because Dermalogica is one of my amazing blog partners I got the chance to try it out for a few weeks before it hit the shelves here! It’s being released in New Zealand today, so I wanted to share my thoughts on it and give you the chance to try it for yourself (yeah babe, that means there’s going to be a giveaway!).

Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant

As I have gotten older, I’ve started thinking about the things that have an effect on my skin. For years I was a smoker, and that definitely had an effect – it made my skin look noticeably older. When I quit smoking more than six years ago, I noticed my skin start improving and start looking younger (aka my actual age). When I eat certain foods, I get breakouts or notice that my skin is more sensitive. I also happen to live in a busy city, so I’m really concious of pollution and what that means for my skin health. Exposure to air pollution has been linked to signs of skin ageing, and while ageing itself really isn’t a concern for me (because apparently most people think I look ten years younger than I already am), things like uneven skin tone, hyper pigmentation (brown spots) and sensitivity are things that I want to avoid as much as I can.

So, the reason I’m waffling on about this is because Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant is meant to smooth away skin-ageing pollution while it combats those environmental triggers that cause brown spots, fine lines and uneven skin tone.

Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant

It comes as a powder that seems similar in concept to Dermalogica’s Daily Microfoliant (have you tried that? It’s bloody great!). After cleansing your skin, you tip about half a teaspoon into the palm of your hand. You’re meant to have very wet hands but sometimes I find it easier to pour the Daily Superfoliant into my left hand when it’s dry, then wet my right hand before rubbing my hands together to create a paste.

Once it’s formed a paste, you apply it to your face (obviously, haha) in small circular motions. Don’t just jam it on and wash it off though, you need to give it time to work it’s magic! Keep gently massaging it in for about a minute and let it do it’s thing before you clean it off with warm water. It feels a lot like the thorough scrub that you get when you’re cleaning off the Dermalogica Charcoal Rescue Masque, which I loved, because a scrub that really scrubs is my jam! I want to feel it working, I want it to leave my skin feeling smooth and looking great. That’s exactly what the new Daily Superfoliant does – it leaves my skin feeling thoroughly cleaned.

I started my new skincare routine after I saw a Dermalogica Skin Therapist at the end of January, and I’ve added the Daily Superfoliant in as part of that. I’ve been using it for three weeks now, 3-4 times a week on alternate days, and I’ve found that it’s made a really big difference to my skin, was pretty dull and wasn’t feeling smooth after a summer of swimming, windy days, very big changes in temperature and environment.

    My particular time in summer was 4weeks ago when my husband and I took our 3grandchildren plus son & daughter inlaw away for a 3day weekend at Te Mata Lodge, Thames! Everyone went kayaking apart from us ladies (need to look after our appearance!) Had amazing meals, men went out fishing while we took the kids out for walks and ice cream. There was one day that we all went to collect Cockles. First time ever that my grandchildren ever did this and they loved it! Plus the swimming of course. We put alot on the bbq for lunch and they absolutely loved them!

    This summer has been great as i did a lot of walking with two friends . the weather was great for it. 6 km morning and night when we could.

    My best thing about this summer has been seeing my eldest son discover a love of running (and me running with him), it’s allowed us time together and some great conversations!

    Best thing about summer was my Sweet Pea CropI grew the sweet peas from seed, staked them into the mesh and they bloomed so beautifully. Heavenly fragrance and so pretty. They have died down now and I collected the seed for next year. . I’ve dug the pea straw back into the soil and have hence completed the krebs ( nitrogen fixation ) cycle. So satisfying. Thanks Meagan!

    The best thing about my summer has been getting out of the city to go to the beach at Waihi for a long weekend

    The best thing about summer is going to the beach on a lovely warm evening with the Husby and our Labrador Jules, and watching Jules swim around like a wee otter. Pure joy!

    I love long summer days, wearing jandals and no long sleeves🀣

  9. March 12, 2017 / 10:09 am

    Best thing about summer has been… hmm.. starting a new job. Fresh start. New me!

    The best part of summer was actually having the same days off as my boyfriend for once! Oh and the short glimpse of sun!

    The best part of my summer was all the picnics, bbqs and walks with the kids. So great to be outside!

    My favourite thing in this summer. Although it was cooler it was easier on my skin and our veggie gardens did really well so lots of fresh and healthy food grown at home πŸ™‚

    The best part of summer is the afternoon when it’s just the right temp and it smells of freshly mowed lawns and I’m enjoying a shandy with family.

    Love scrubs so keen to try this new one. What’s the difference between the daily & the superfolient? Is there a cost to see a dermoligica specialist?

    • March 10, 2017 / 12:04 pm

      Sounds perfect! The Daily Micro and the Daily Superfoliant have different ingredients, the Daily Superfoliant feels a lot more active on my skin and the Daily Micro feels more gentle and soothing. I get my skin prescription renewed when I get a facial, but I think you can get Face Mapped by itself. What suburb are you in Cherie?

    Hands down, best thing about summer, getting washing dry!!!! (Spot the mum!)

    Ps I’ve been using dermalogica for over 15 years now and it’s so simple to use. I’m keen to try the charcoal masque. Have you used it?

  15. March 9, 2017 / 2:03 pm

    This summer was my first summer as a stay at home mum, budget much tighter, but but much more rewarding and fun! yay

    • March 9, 2017 / 8:26 pm

      Ooh exciting! I really love being able to spend the school holidays with my boy πŸ˜€

    I have been fortunate enough to visit a couple of SE Asian countries this summer and I can def say that the second best thing that happened to me was bringing my precious Dermalogica Active Moist during this unpleasant humid weather. It was a blessing for my skin πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ» during the trip.

    • March 9, 2017 / 8:36 pm

      A summer of travel sounds wonderful! Glad to hear your Dermalogica looked after you in the humidity!

  18. March 6, 2017 / 7:09 pm

    Ive been using dermalogica for a few months. Would love to try this. My favourite part of summer is wearing my big fancy hats.

    • March 9, 2017 / 8:37 pm

      Big fancy hats are so much fun! I haven’t had nearly enough chances to wear mine this summer

  19. March 6, 2017 / 5:49 pm

    Ohhh I want to try this! I used to love the micro exfoliant by them – so so good.

    • March 9, 2017 / 8:37 pm

      They have SUCH good exfoliating products! I’ve tried two others and I love them all πŸ™‚

    I love summer for so many reasons. Main one being able to unwind after work while the sun still shines at the beach and my fur baby running along beside me.

    • March 9, 2017 / 8:54 pm

      I think that’s one of my favourite things about summer – having that extra bit of daylight at the end of the day

  21. March 5, 2017 / 5:07 pm

    I use the Daily Microfoliant (among a bucketload of other Dermalogica products) so have obviously been wanting to try the Daily Superfoliant too! Best thing about my Summer has been the weekend days and evenings sitting outside in the sun in my garden reading.

    • March 9, 2017 / 8:57 pm

      Sitting in the sun reading is THE BEST! I’ve been reading a lot more this year and I’m loving it!

    I’m a scrub fan too! My fave thing about summer is being able to wear jandals. I love jandals. I also love the brief month or so of Pohutukawa bloomimg. And not feeling cold when you get out of the shower. Ha it’s the little things!

    • March 9, 2017 / 8:58 pm

      Honestly, it’s the little things that make all the difference!

  23. March 5, 2017 / 9:41 am

    Love this post Megan and I adore the Dermalogica brand, so great to see amazing New Zealand beauty products around!

    The best thing about summer was spending 2 weeks off the radar, camping with my family in a forest. My skin’s looking a little dry at times, and could do with a good scrub!

    • March 9, 2017 / 8:59 pm

      Going off the radar is great, right? I find myself so connected to social media that I really only feel revived when I completely switch off!

    Best thing about summer was strawberries, sweetcorn and cherries!! Omg my favourite foods especially being pregnant and all the fresh summer goodness!!

    • March 9, 2017 / 9:50 pm

      Yum! I love all the fresh fruit and veg in summer πŸ˜€

    I have actually been to the beach, OK maybe only half a dozen times! But every time loved it! 😊

    • March 9, 2017 / 9:51 pm

      I feel like I haven’t been to the beach NEARLY enough this summer! Fingers crossed for some more sunny days

    best thing about my Summer was spending quality time with mates and DIY around our home.
    hope you enjoyed your summer πŸ™‚

    • March 9, 2017 / 9:52 pm

      Thanks Helen, I’ve had a great summer! Cool about the DIY, what projects did you have on the go?

  28. March 4, 2017 / 11:10 am

    The best thing about this summer is it actually coming….😘😁 living the sound of the cicadas

    The best thing about my summer was being able to just chill out with my partner and kids! No rushed school mornings etc etc. Just lots of time to play, relax and do fun stuffπŸ˜€

    • March 9, 2017 / 9:53 pm

      That’s one of my fave things about summer too – family time!

    The best thing about my summer was spending time in my garden and working on my green thumb!
    It’s been a while since I have used Dermalogica products so it would be a lovely treat to win this.

    • March 9, 2017 / 9:56 pm

      I wish I had a green thumb! Everyone else in my family is great with gardening but it seems to have skipped me haha

  31. March 3, 2017 / 6:54 pm

    I LOVE dermalogica. One of the few brands I’ve found that match my skin perfectly.

    • March 3, 2017 / 7:27 pm

      So glad to hear you love them too Brooke! Do you have a favourite product?

  32. Denise
    March 3, 2017 / 11:48 am

    I was literally on the Dermalogica website this morning adding this product to my cart! Would be great to win it instead!

    March 3, 2017 / 10:32 am

    This sounds like a great product, I suffer uneven skin tone so definitely something for me.

    The best thing about my summer was discovering our local lakes for the first time! So beautiful and perfect on a hot day.

    • March 9, 2017 / 9:57 pm

      Lake swims are the best! I had a few swims in Lake Taupo but not nearly enough

    I have been enjoying a massive purge this summer. It’s been so rewarding cleaning out stuff that has accumulated over the years.

    • March 9, 2017 / 9:59 pm

      SO satisfying! I’ve been doing that as well, it’s so good.

  35. Kelsi
    March 3, 2017 / 10:18 am

    The best thing about summer for sure is cute couple road trips and picnics with my love ❀.

    My poor skin needs some TLC!

    • March 9, 2017 / 10:00 pm

      I need cute couple road trips and picnics, that sounds like so much fun!

  36. Kelly
    March 3, 2017 / 9:31 am

    Swimming in the sea and then a picnic dinner at the beach!

    • March 9, 2017 / 10:00 pm

      I’m really hoping for more of this, I haven’t had enough summer swims yet!

    March 3, 2017 / 9:21 am

    I actually used a sample of this this morning! It feels fabulous on my skin which has been feeling yucky lately. Best part of my summer was looking out my window at my beautiful view in our new home. I haven’t been able to do much else because i injured my ankle in December and am waiting for surgery πŸ˜ͺ

    • March 9, 2017 / 10:07 pm

      Glad to hear you liked it Michelle! Sorry to hear about your ankle, I hope your surgery comes soon xo
