  • NEW Phyto-Nature Firming Serum

    Many of us make the assumption that the way we age is based on genetics. What we now know, however, is that up to 50% of the ageing we see on our skin is generated from our exposmoes – our environments and our daily lifestyle habits. UV and pollution exposure, dietary choices, stress and sleep patterns, and even our technology consumption can all significantly accelerate skin ageing.

    In our modern busy lives, and in a world that’s rapidly growing, how can we get a handle on this exposome-driven skin ageing and preserve the youth and health of our skin? The skin experts at Dermalogica have brought us a solution in the form of a break-through, dual-phase, high performing serum. Introducing the NEW AGESmart Phyto-Nature Firming Serum, Dermalogica’s most advanced serum to date.

    Science in a Bottle

    Clinically proven to reduce visible wrinkles in four weeks, the NEW Phyto-Nature Firming Serum works in two phases: firstly, it re-activates the nature of younger skin, and secondly, it protects against future skin damage. Fusing the best of science with mother nature’s potent pharmacy, Phyto-Nature Firming Serum lifts and firms by working with the skin’s owns mechanisms to restore youth and safeguard against future environmental assault. Each of the phases is housed separately in a dual-chamber bottle to keep them potent, and then then they’re only mixed together upon application.

    Separate Oil and Water based chambers mix actives for maximum results

    Reactivating the Nature of Your Younger Skin

    We now understand that the ageing we see on our skin - lines, wrinkles, loss of tone - is driven by our genes AND exposome. As we get older, processes that help maintain youthful skin naturally decline, but this demise is exacerbated by lifestyle factors too. One of these key processes is the skin’s defence mechanism. Our skin is pre-programmed to fight internal and external stress, but these capabilities weaken over time, meaning the skin is more vulnerable to damage. One of our skin’s hero defenders is a powerful antioxidant called Glutathione. In an older skin versus a younger skin, there are smaller supplies of Glutathione which explains why we experience more lines and wrinkles as we age. Exposure to UV and pollution also depletes the youth-preserving supplies of Glutathione. To boost the skin’s natural defences, the NEW Phyto-Nature Firming Serum features a Glutathione peptide. This peptide is a very potent antioxidant and is therefore easily broken down, so it’s bound to Sapphire, to help shield it and infuse it deeper into the skin.

    Another process the NEW Phyto-Nature Firming Serum helps to restore is the deterioration of the cells in the skin responsible for making our collagen and elastin. In older skin, this firming technology has become outdated; it’s slower and less productive which means that the skin shows more lines, wrinkles and sagging. Palmitoyl Tripeptide-28 helps to promote firmer, younger-looking skin.

    Along with a decline in the skin’s defence and structure, some of our skin cells can become hostile as we get older, morphing from healthy skin cells into ‘zombie’ skin cells that accelerate skin aging by secreting harmful toxins. Another designer peptide featured in the NEW Phyto-Nature Firming Serum is Trifluoroacetyl Tripeptide-2. This advanced peptide keeps the zombie population at bay by improving the vitality of the skin.

    Safe Proofing to Slow Down the Clock

    In conjunction to re-programming the skin to behave younger, the second phase of the NEW Phyto-Nature Firming Serum features a blend of exclusive botanical bio-actives, designed to prevent premature skin aging driven by our exposomes. Moroccan Rockrose Extract provides a rich source of antioxidants for an extra boost of defence, while Madagascar Green Coffee reduces and controls inflammation – another contributor to premature skin ageing. Whether it’s a tight time schedule, a demanding career, or a lack of sleep, stress is a common denominator in most of our lives and it also plays a central role in skin aging. Camu Camu, a ‘youth berry’ from the Amazon is rich in vitamin C and has the ability to deflect stress from wreaking havoc on the skin.

    To top off the incredible mix of youth-boosting peptides and botanicals in the NEW Phyto-Nature Firming Serum, there’s also a next-generation version of Hyaluronic Acid. It provides an instant flash firming effect on the skin, meaning you’ll see results from just one use.

    How to Use Phyto Nature Firming Serum:

    Phyto-Nature Firming Serum can be used twice daily. Dispense 1 – 2 pumps into the palms of your hand and blend the two serums together, then apply onto a clean face and neck. Once absorbed, follow with your moisturiser and SPF for essential daytime protection.

    The NEW Phyto-Nature Firming Serum provides a radical solution to healthy, youthful skin. If you want to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, increase luminosity and build skin resilience then sign up for our exclusive pre-launch offer starting Wednesday 21st August.

  • The Return of Dermalogica's MultiVitamin Power Serum

    It’s back! Our favourite age fighting serum from Dermalogica’s advanced AGEsmart system has returned. A skin smoothing elixir, MultiVitamin Power Serum combines microencapsulated vitamins with active firming peptides. This velvety, potent serum delivers dramatic skin repair that leaves the skin brighter, firmer and smoother.

    More on The Techy Vitamin Blend

    To get the most from the blend of restorative vitamins, Dermalogica has packaged them up in an advanced form of microencapsulation liposome technology. What this does is ensure the vitamins are kept stable and potent, plus the liposomes act like a taxi, transporting the microencapsulated vitamins deep into skin. Plus, the encapsulated vitamins are suspended in a Sunflower butter and velvety silicone base to support long-term stability and performance along creating a smooth, wearable feel.

    The encapsulated vitamins consist of Vitamins A, C and E. Each vitamin possesses powerful antioxidant properties to help prevent future skin damage and provide skin repair. But each vitamin has additional unique benefits for the skin. Firstly, Vitamin A smooths and softens the skin. It also helps to firm and minimise the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Next, highly stabilised and active form of Vitamin C defends, firms and brighten the skin, helping to reverse signs of premature ageing and even skintone And finally, encapsulated Vitamin E helps conditions and strengthens the skin.

    But that’s not all, MultiVitamin Power Serum also features the following cosmeceutical ingredients:

    • Bio-Retinol Complex: a companion to the encapsulated Vitamin A, not only does it smooth the skin’s texture, but it also helps the skin to defend itself against the triggers of premature ageing.
    • Ascorbyl Glucoside: acts as a Vitamin C booster, brightening dull looking skin and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, resulting in younger looking skin.
    • Palmitoyl Hexapeptide-14: this hardworking peptide smooths and firms to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It also helps prevent against some of the triggers of accelerated skin ageing.

    Sarah Talks about the return on MultiVitamin Power Serum

    MultiVitamin Power Serum is a must have for anyone concerned with lines, wrinkles and uneven skin tone and texture. This high performing serum leaves skin looking more radiant and youthful. It can be used morning and night, after toning and before moisturising.

  • Grab your Free Prisma Partners Pack Today.

    Dermalogica has just launched Prisma Protect spf15! This multi-tasking moisturiser defends against UV rays, free radical damage and pollution. It visibly smooths and hydrates all day long while boosting the skins natural luminosity. 

    GLO Skin Body is celebrating this exciting launch by offering a Prisma Protect Partners Pack when you spend over $120. This fantastic offer includes two perfect partners with a bonus cosmetics bag.

    Included is Sound Sleep Cocoon mini 10 ml.  

    During the day skin cells are working to protect themselves from UV exposure and free radical damage. Prisma Protect SPF15 works with this daytime defense mode delivering SPF protection, blocking 85% of particulate pollutants and converting visible light into increased skin luminosity, boosting  the skin's defenses and natural radiance.
    When the sun goes down the opposite happens, our skin switches into regeneration mode- repairing day time damage and boosting the production of substances that protect and renew.

    As its name might suggest Sound Sleep Cocoon (the night time partner of Prisma Protect) is designed to be used at night to work with the body's natural circadian rhythms. And what is that, you may ask? Our bodies are run by a circadian rhythm and internal clock consisting of a 24 hour cycle which is affected by the light and darkness in a person’s environment. At night, the skin is able to better  absorb active ingredients and repair damage that has occurred during the day.

     Sound Sleep Cocoon boosts radiance by replenishing the hydration that the skin loses throughout the day. It delivers  active ingredients at night, when skin is at its most receptive and encourages restful sleep with essential oils. Sound Sleep Cocoon is best used as your last step in your night time routine over your moisturiser to further enhance overnight hydration.

    Included is Precleanse Mini 15ml. This is a great makeup remover, even for water proof mascara and long wearing lipstick. It dissolves oil-based make-up, oil, sunscreens and environmental pollutants from the skin's surface, enabling skin to be thoroughly cleansed and feel calm and nourished. This will also assist  your prescribed Dermalogica cleanser. 

    All of this is then packed inside a beautiful Prisma Protect inspired cosmetic bag. Sounds good, huh? Limited time offer while stock last so you’d better be quick!

  • Intensive Moisture Duo just got a power-up!

    Healthy skin comes down to having a healthy barrier. This essentially means the right balance of skin lipids and hydration, plus an optimal microbiome (bacterial community found on the skin). For those of us born with a dry skin, or who experience dryness due to ageing, our environment or lifestyle, maintaining a healthy barrier can be a daily battle.

    The Lowdown on Lipids

    Dry skin comes about as a result of a lack of skin lipids. The skin’s barrier can be likened to a brick wall: the dead skin acts as “bricks” and the lipids glue the dead skin cells together like “mortar” holds the bricks together. These physical and chemical components build a resilient barrier that holds moisture within the skin and keeps irritants out. When you have less than the optimal amount of lipids, your skin becomes more vulnerable to moisture loss and extrinsic factors such as weather changes or pollution. This leads to signs of dryness such as flaking, dullness, roughness, tightness, itching, cracking and irritation.

    With a commitment to healthy skin, Dermalogica’s newest cleanser and moisturiser duo provide much-needed relief and recovery for dry skins. Introducing the NEW and improved Intensive Moisture Balance and the NEW Intensive Moisture Cleanser.

    Intensive Moisture Balance
    New Intensive Moisture Balance powered by BioReplenish Complex

    Intensive Moisture Balance

    Like the latest upgrade to your smart phone, Dermalogica’s long-standing dry skin hero, Intensive Moisture Balance, has been updated and advanced with the latest ingredient technology. Powered by a BioReplenish Complex™, the re-formulated Intensive Moisture Balance imparts a blend of specific skin mimicking barrier lipids for superior barrier restoration and recovery.

    Along with the BioReplenish Complex™, the updated moisturiser now also boasts Dual Hyaluronic Acid. Different sizes of Hyaluronic Acid quench parched skins both at a deep level and superficially, to keep moisture locked in for the long term. Another new cosmeceutical is prebiotic Chlorella Algae Complex, which relives dryness by targeting the skin’s microbiome. It works by fostering good bacteria and inhibiting bad bacteria that leads to dryness.

    Available in 3 sizes from Feb 1st. 100ml, 50ml and handy travel friendly 15ml. Shop today.

    What is the Difference between Dry and Dehydrated
    Dry and Dehydrated - a dermalogica solution for both

    New Intensive Moisture Cleanser available in 50ml, 150ml & 295ml

    NEW Intensive Moisture Cleanser

    When it comes to cleansing dry skin, many formulas either contain harsh surfactants that strip essential barrier lipids and perpetuate dryness or are too mild to thoroughly remove dirt and build-up on the skin. A game changer in the cleansing world, the NEW Intensive Moisture Cleanser is formulated with a cutting edge, lipid enriched cleansing system that deeply cleanses without damaging the lipid barrier. Along with featuring the strengthening BioReplenish Complex™, it’s also fortified with phytoactives from Coconut and Murumuru Seed Butter which further help to promote barrier resilience and leave the skin feeling silky soft. Along with these moisture rich ingredients, there’s also extracts of Citrus, Palmarosa and Jasmine that further soothe and reenergise a dull, dry skin.

    For healthy, smooth and stronger skin, use Intensive Moisture Balance and Intensive Moisture Cleanser together, twice daily, morning and night.

    A note on availability

    Intensive Moisture Balance is available with our Pre-Sale offer until launch day 1st Feb 2019. Orders placed for the Pre-Sale offer will be dispatched to arrive around Friday 1st of Feb.

    Currently Intensive Moisture Cleanser is currently only available in 295ml and in very limited quantities. Further stock will become available in March 2019 in 50ml, 150ml and 295ml.

    Essential Cleansing Solution has been discontinued as part of the upgrade program.

  • Skin Smoothing Cream, What you love now with more

    Skin Smoothing Cream is our #1 moisturiser for a reason!

    As one of the first products launched by Dermalogica, Skin Smoothing Cream has certainly stood the test of time. Since the 1980's our lives and environment have changed, together with dermalogica's developments in skincare technology the timing is perfect to update this favourite and we are excited to share with you why!

    When is this happening?

    New Skin Smoothing Cream with HydraMesh Technology begins sale on the 5th October. The new formulation will be for the first time available for sale in 3 sizes (100ml, 50ml and new 15ml trial size).

    What has changed?

    The average adult loses nearly half a litre of moisture through Trans-Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL) every day, making continuous hydration an essential component of overall skin health. But between increasing environmental triggers and ever-busier lifestyles, today’s moisturisers need to do more than just replace lost hydration. Dehydration also disrupts the skin’s microbiome and accelerates the loss of crucial enzymes – so we made it our mission to harness advanced hydration technologies into a next-generation formula for our best-selling moisturiser.

    Dermalogica’s Skin Smoothing Cream is now upgraded with the latest technology to feature state-of-the-art Active HydraMesh Technology, which works on a molecular level to help reduce TEWL and infuse skin with 48 hours of continuous hydration. This advanced technology also helps shield skin’s natural microbiome from environmental stress.

    The Details on Hydration

    Proper hydration is central to skin health. The skin has its own Natural Moisturising Factor (NMF). This is the collective name for a group of molecules that help retain moisture in the skin. Hydration can also come from topically applied skin care products, the water you drink throughout the day, and your diet. Likewise, lifestyle can have a big impact on skin’s hydration levels: environmental factors, stress, and even the weather can significantly deplete skin’s hydration reserves.

    The result of this depletion is dehydrated skin. It can affect anyone, and can appear as fine lines, dryness and tightness – and one of the biggest consequences of dehydrated skin is an increase in sensitivity. Regardless of the symptoms, the solution is providing continual hydration to keep skin dehydration at bay.

    Why is the Lipid Barrier important?

    Found in the outermost layer of the epidermis – the stratum corneum – lipids are the “mortar” in the skin structure that form a protective barrier from the outside world, helping to keep irritants out. The lipid barrier plays a crucial role in managing skin’s moisture levels by stopping water loss and preventing extreme dryness.

    When the lipid barrier is impaired or slow in replenishing itself, this protective barrier is compromised – which can result in dehydration and increased sensitivity.

    What is the Microbiome?

    The skin hosts a wide array of organisms that comprise its microbiome (natural microbial ecosystem). Traditionally we tend to think of most bacteria as “bad”, but the skin microbiome plays an important role in some of the skin’s key processes. In terms of cell turnover, the microbiome helps regulate skin’s pH – which is vital for the function of crucial enzymes. It’s also a key part of the immune system, and physically blocks “bad” bacteria from the skin.

    Research is ongoing, but we’re now starting to understand the positive impact that certain bacteria within the skin’s microbiome can have on skin health. Therefore, by influencing the microbiome, we can influence the overall health of the skin.

  • Why Vitamin-C should be in every Australian's bathroom

    Vitamin C is considered a powerhouse when it comes to taking on and slowing down accelerated skin ageing. Not only is it an incredible antioxidant, but it also firms, and brightens the skin, for a more youthful appearance.

    We know that genetically our skin ages, but what surprises a lot of people is how much of our life style contributes to ageing. UV, pollution, stress, lack of sleep and diet are the catalyst for three biological processes that lead to the formation of early fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin tone. The reason Vitamin C is hailed as one of the most powerful ingredients in mother nature’s pharmacy is because it’s been scientifically proven to tackle these biological processes.

    BioLumin-C by dermalogica BioLumin-C by dermalogica

    Vitamin C is essential for us in Australia as it protects against UV damage by neutralising free radicals and has been shown to reduce UV-induced sunburn by 60% when applied to the skin. Why is this important?  UV-induced sun damage is responsible for 80% of the structural changes associated with skin ageing. Sunscreen does help protect us, but only 55% of the free radicals are blocked by regular use.


    The biological processes

    One of the major biological processes that leads to premature ageing is free radical damage. Free radicals can damage skin cell structures, causing wrinkles over time and compromising the skin’s ability to repair itself. Another biological process is Matrix Metalloproteinases (MMPs). MMPs are a group of enzymes activated by UV exposure and/or inflammation that cause the breakdown of our collagen and prevent new collagen being formed. The third biological process is the reaction of sugar with our skin’s proteins like collagen, known as Advanced Glycation End products. This process happens naturally, but a diet high in sugar will exacerbate it.

    Vitamin C, Almost perfect

    Whilst Vitamin C is a phenomenal ingredient, it does come with some formulation caveats. From a chemistry perceptive, Vitamin C is volatile to work with. It’s unstable and therefore easily broken down when exposed to air, light or heat. You may have experienced your Vitamin C serum turn a yellowish brown, this is evidence of oxidation which degrades the serum’s potency. The reality is your Vitamin C serum could become inactive before its even been used. The other challenge is targeted delivery; Vitamin C needs to travel to the lower layers of the skin to unlock its true potential and deliver the significant anti-ageing results.


    Dermalogica BioLumen-c Dermalogica BioLumen-c

    BioLumin-C Serum

    Dermalogica’s new BioLumin-C Serum from AGEsmart represents a new generation in Vitamin C formulation. This revolutionary serum combines an ultra-stable Vitamin C complex with advanced bio-technology to deliver the natural power of Vitamin C where it’s needed most. Plus, BioLumin-C Serum goes beyond reversing and reducing skin ageing, it also boosts the skin’s own defences so it can protect itself better against the age accelerating biological processes.


    Key ingredients in BioLumin-C Serum include:

    • Vitamin C Complex - a synergy of two forms of ultra-stable Vitamin C powered up with collagen stimulating Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5.
    • Lactic Acid – this Alpha Hydroxy Acid exfoliates dull, dead skin cells from skin’s outermost layers, allowing the Vitamin C Complex to delve deeper into the skin.
    • Sophora Japonica Flower and Chia Seed Oil – potent antioxidants that defend against free radical damage.

    This hydrating, non-sticky serum sinks beautifully into the skin to brighten, firm and defend. To use, dispense a few drops from the dropper and smooth onto clean skin after spritzing with your hydrating toner. Antioxidant Hydramist complements BioLumin-C Serum perfectly as it creates a hydrating, antioxidant shield over skin to help reduce fine dryness lines and prevent the signs of ageing. Follow with your moisturiser, remembering to use a SPF in the daytime to protect against skin damaging UV rays.

  • Why You Need SPF Everyday - Not Just at the Beach...

    Did you know that two in three Australians are diagnosed with skin cancer by age 70? And that more than 2,000 people in Australia die from skin cancer each year?

    The Cancer Council estimates that Australia spends more than $1 billion per year treating skin cancer but with some key protection methods we can prevent most skin cancers!

    Most of us will remember the Slip, Slop, Slap message from years past... but now, coming up to National Skin Cancer Action Week, Australians of all ages are urged to  always use the five forms of sun protection. These are to:

    SLIP on sun-protective clothing SLOP on SPF30 (or higher) broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen SLAP on a broad-brimmed hat SEEK shade SLIDE on UV protective sunglasses.

    A combination of these measures, along with getting to know your skin and regularly checking for any changes, are the keys to reducing your skin cancer risk. For many Australians, applying daily sun protection is still not a ritual, even though there has been endless education and a plethora of products on the market.

    Here, Ellie Douglas - Dermalogica Training Specialist helps us navigate the different SPF products available and discusses the importance of shielding against UV rays every day, not just when we're at the beach!

    Busting the myth on sunscreen It’s a common misconception that sun protection factor (SPF) products are designed for use solely in the summer or hotter months. When the sun’s not beaming brightly, our sunscreen retires to the back of our bathroom cabinet, only to make its next appearance with the swimwear and sun hats, and by then it may have expired.

    In reality, UVA rays are present at the same intensity all year round. Being the longest rays in the spectrum, they penetrate to the deeper layers of the skin causing damage to our collagen and elastin. UVA is the culprit for much of our visible skin ageing in the form of wrinkles, sagging skin, uneven skin tone and sun spots. Other signs of damage are the appearance of small blood vessels and spider veins on the face, neck and chest.

    Don’t get a false sense of security when sitting in doors or when the weather is a dull, as UVA can penetrate unfiltered glass including some car windows. And don’t count on the clouds to protect you, as UVA is still active on cloudy days. They say, “prevention is better than cure”, and this phrase couldn’t be more fitting when talking about wearing sun protection. A daily dose of an SPF 30 - 50+ should be your number one product priority, to not only protect the skin, but prevent against the signs of premature ageing.

    Out with greasy, in with invisible! There are some highly sophisticated sunscreen technologies available today. No longer do we have to be afraid of our SPF. It doesn’t have to feel greasy and suffocating on our skin. Not all sunscreens will clog the pores and cause breakouts and congestion. In fact, with the advances in some sunscreens today, you won’t even know that you’re wearing one. And as a bonus, your chosen sunscreen can even help firm, mattify and brighten your skin, depending on your individual skin goals and challenges.

    Dermalogica uses two advanced technologies in its sunscreen formulations, making our fear of sunscreen a thing of the past…Let me introduce you to oleosomes and UV smart booster technology. Oleosomes are tiny moisturising bubbles that can be loaded with SPF. The result is a sunscreen that allows for increased SPF activity whilst using fewer chemical sunscreens and is therefore less likely to cause skin sensitivity. What’s more, these moisture rich oleosomes deliver a feather light, wearable consistency. Effective protection from harmful UV rays is a two pronged approach. Firstly, the rays must be either absorbed with chemical sun screens or reflected with physical sun screens. Secondly, the skin will benefit hugely from having a good dose of antioxidants to fight free radical damage caused by exposure to UV rays.

    Dermalogica’s UV smart booster technology provides a fresh dose of encapsulated vitamins which are cleverly released only when they encounter UV rays. Once you’ve found a sunscreen that you’re happy with, the next part is applying it correctly.

    Here are Ellie's top tips for optimum protection: - Apply ideally 30 minutes prior to sun exposure. - The Cancer Council of Australia’s guide to applying sun screen is half a teaspoon for the face, ears and front and back of neck. - Reapply your sunscreen every two hours. - Don’t forget bald heads, thinning scalps, the chest, arms and hands - they all need protecting too!

    Selecting a sunscreen for your skin type and lifestyle Many of Dermalogica’s sunscreens are built into a moisturiser, so if you’re time poor these make a good option - just pick out one that’s best suited to your skin. But if you already love your daytime moisturiser, then consider a product like Solar Defense Booster SPF 50, this innovative sunscreen allows you to add a few drops to your moisturiser or even your foundation and get the protection you require.

    Reactive and sensitive skin: Choose a physical sunscreen such as the Super Sensitive Shield SPF 30. This 2 in 1 moisturiser, formulated with natural mineral sunscreens, contains oat and botanical actives to help minimise any skin irritation.

    Oily skin and breakouts: Use a medicated, oil free treatment moisturiser with an SPF 30+. We recommend Oil Free Matte SPF 30 from the MediBac Clearing system.

    Fine line and wrinkles: It has to be Dermalogica’s Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF 50. With its medium weight consistency, it’s a winner for all skin types. This ultra-hydrating sunscreen is jam packed with antioxidants and age fighting vitamins and peptides.

    Uneven skin tone and brown spots: Pure Light SPF 50 is the product of choice. It shields the skin from UV-induced hyper-pigmentation, whilst brightening peptides and exfoliating enzymes enhance skin tone and fade dark spots. Thankfully, sunscreens have come a long way in the past five years; they’re feather light, fast-absorbing and with added skin benefits. Whether it's skin cancer prevention or a desire to slow down the ageing process, sunscreen has it covered and more. It’s time to upgrade your sunscreen from the back of the bathroom cabinet and make it a daily staple product alongside your cleanser and moisturiser.

    19-25th November 2017 is National Skin Cancer Action Week.

  • We answer your questions about Daily Microfoliant vs Daily Superfoliant

    We have been asked many questions in relation to Daily Microfoliant and Daily Superfoliant…

    • Is Daily Superfoliant a replacement for Daily Microfoliant?
    • Is Daily Superfoliant better than Daily Microfoliant?
    • Which one should I use??

    So we hope to set the record straight when it comes to these two great products.

    Daily Microfoliant is a multi-award winning product and one of the most globally in-demand in the Dermalogica range. This rice-based enzyme powder microfoliates the skin and is renowned for its smoothing and brightening capabilities.

    It is gentle enough to use everyday and works to remove dulling surface debris to reveal brighter, smoother skin while stimulating cell renewal for improved suppleness. It helps balance uneven pigmentation for a more even complexion.

    So, when Dermalogica launched Daily Superfoliant, many people thought “Yeah! An even BETTER version of Daily Microfoliant!” Whilst it may seem similar with Dermalogica's innovative powder technology, the two products in fact have very different uses, ingredients and key benefits.

    Daily Superfoliant has become extremely popular, it is a versatile product that people have fallen in love with since its launch. It is much courser in consistency than Daily Microfoliant. It exfoliates skin to help prevent premature signs of ageing due to environmental pollutants and acts as more of a resurfacer than it’s skin polishing and brightening counterpart.

    Here’s a breakdown of the key benefits of both these products and how they are actually best used when complementing each other.

    Daily Microfoliant Daily Microfoliant






    Daily Microfoliant

    • Daily Microfoliant is renowned for its smoothing and brightening properties
    • The pH of Daily Microfoliant is slightly acidic which helps tighten and minimise the appearance of pores
    • The lower pH of Daily Microfoliant contains more skin brightening actives such as Phytic Acid, as well as skin-soothing Oatmeal.
    Daily Superfoliant

    Daily Superfoliant


    Daily Superfoliant

    • Daily Superfoliant resurfaces skin to help prevent premature signs of pollution-induced skin ageing.
    • The pH of Daily Superfoliant is slightly Alkaline, promoting temporary opening of pores to help cleanse and remove pollutants.
    • Daily Superfoliant contains higher levels of more skin-resurfacing enzymes, alpha-hydroxy acids and anti-pollution ingredients.

    We recommend that used over alternate days or even morning and night, these two products work wonderfully and most efficiently together!

    To harness the key properties of both these products, we have a Foliant-Duo Gift Set for a limited time! Every purchase over $120 will receive a Trial size duo containing Daily Microfoliant and Daily Superfoliant. While stocks last, so hurry!

    Check out our clip on why Superfoliant is right for your skin.

    Customer Review

    "I recently went for a day out with the family on the water. I didn't wear my hat and I got incredibly burnt. I used this stuff on the top of my head and forehead and apart from taking away the heat, I didn't have half the issues over the week after that I thought I was going to.

    Anyway - trick here was that we already had it in your house, so buy it JUST IN CASE your husband / partner is silly like me." From Daniel My Rating star_PNG1595star_PNG1595star_PNG1595star_PNG1595star_PNG1595

    "I like that this product can be added to moisturizer as it means i can use my moisturizer as a night cream and add the solar defense for when I use it as day cream. I also love that is spf 50 so I don't have to worry about reapplying throughout the day"

    This is an awesome product for Break-out prone teen skin. After cleansing and toning, this can be applied all over the face and neck. It is ultra light, non greasy, while hydrating the skin and leaving a matte finish. Plus the spf15 shields the skin against UV rays which can make breakouts worse and cause dark spots.
