Dermalogica's New Exfoliator Is Even Better Than Its Cult-Favorite Classic



From the makers of the makeup-melting, skin-soothing PreCleanse and the game-changing face oil that saved our skin this fall comes a pollutant-fighting exfoliator set to launch January 3. Dermalogica's Daily Superfoliant ($58) resurfaces the skin and prevents premature signs of aging that can happen as a result of pollution. Fans of the brand might be familiar with the best-selling, rice-based Daily Microfoliant ($55), but think of the Daily Superfoliant as its charcoal-based antiaging cousin.

The new exfoliator is finely grained in texture, much like its predecessor, and combats the pollution affecting your skin by way of activated binchotan charcoal powder, which draws out dirt and excess oil from clogged pores. It doesn't just effectively remove impurities—it also soothes and brightens skin to counteract the effects of the environment with niacinamide (an anti-inflammatory ingredient) and lactic acid. And yes, you can use it daily, as its name suggests, without fear of stressing out your skin.

We recently put it to the test and couldn't be more pleased to report that so far, we're digging the gritty formula and its supercharged exfoliating powers. Get your hands on a bottle first thing in 2017 to maintain pollution-free glowy skin all year long.
