His Picks: Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant

Fancy knowing about my top skincare picks? Keep reading to see my review of Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant!

For the longest time, Dermalogica has been one of my top skincare choices. I’ve tried a lot of products from the range and they’ve never disappointed. Backed by the science of dermatology, the brand has an incredible ethos. They believe in an ‘education first’ approach, aiming to ensure every customer knows their skin. I’ve been trying out their Daily Microfoliant for a couple of weeks now, and thought I’d share my thoughts.

What is Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant?

The Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant is a gentle, yet effective, daily exfoliator. It’s a rice-based powder that activates when combined with water. It works to remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, leaving you with a soft and smooth complexion.

How do I use it?

Firstly, I run my hands under water to wet them, before adding some of the powder to my hands. I then rub it together, which turns the powder into an exfoliating paste. Once it’s at this stage, I then apply it to my face in circular motions, focusing on the areas that are drier. Finally, I rinse it off and pat my face dry.

What do I think?

Honestly, I love this! Exfoliators can sometimes feel a bit harsh on the skin, however this is so gentle that I’m not worried using it multiple times a week. I’m also an incredible fan of the smell, it’s got a subtle scent of oats. I’d recommend using it in the shower though, because it can get a bit messy if you’re using it around the sink.



If you haven’t tried anything from Dermalogica, I’d definitely recommend you check them out. Click here to shop their range, you won’t be disappointed.

His Picks: Kiehl’s Nightly Refining Micro-Peel

Fancy knowing about my top skincare picks? Keep reading to see my review of Kiehl’s Nightly Refining Micro-Peel!

Kiehl’s will always have a place in my heart for being the first ever skincare routine I truly invest in. Not only have I worked for them, I’ve visited their flagship store in New York and held blogger events for the brand. It’s where my passion for skincare actually began! I always try to be the first in line when they launch a new product, because I honestly believe all their products are effective and worth every penny.

What is Kiehl’s Nightly Refining Micro-Peel?

The Kiehl’s Nightly Refining Micro-Peel is a new addition to the line, and it focuses on helping to refine the rough texture of skin. This face serum helps to increase the speed at which your skin cells regenerate, encouraging new skin to come to the surface faster. This obviously helps in revealing a fresher, smoother complexion.

How do I use it?

You apply the serum at night, after cleanser and toner, but before any other additional serums. It’s actually okay to layer other skincare products on top, which I think is great. Usually I follow with Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Oil, and then my Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Cream. The things we do for good skin, eh?

What do I think?

This is a solid addition to your nighttime skincare routine. I suffer from dry skin, and sometimes it needs a bit of a kick up the backside to get going. Your skins natural repair process happens at night, so having a product to help encourage skin cell turnover is going to be a winner in my eyes. I find that when I wake up in the morning, my skin feels super fresh. It’s honestly like I’ve had a mini facial, without any effort at all because it happens while I sleep!


If you’re a skincare junkie like me, you’ll love this product. It’s definitely one worth trying, and Kiehl’s are nice enough to provide samples if you go to one of their counters. Make sure you check out the full range of products by clicking here.
