Product Review: Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant

I have been obsessed with exfoliating lately. As important as exfoliation is to revitalize tired and dull-looking skin, remove pore-clogging oil and debris, and softening the look of wrinkles and fine lines and promoting collagen production, its super  important not to over exfoliate.  Over exfoliation can lead to redness, irritation, tightness, dry patches, uncomfortable stinging and burning.   I recently received Dermalogica's Daily Microfoliant to review and was super excited to try it because it is super gentle made from a rice base powder making it almost impossible to over exfoliate.



Dermalogica's Daily Microfoliant is a gentle, daily use exfoliating powder for all skin conditions. Unique Rice-based powder formula activates upon contact with water, releasing Papain, Salicylic Acid and Rice Enzymes that micro-exfoliate dead cells, instantly leaving skin smoother and brighter. Their unique Skin Brightening Complex helps to balance uneven skin pigmentation while a super-soothing blend of Green Tea, Ginkgo and Colloidal Oatmeal helps to calm the skin, leaving it extraordinarily clear and refreshed. Gentle enough to use on a daily basis.



Powder exfoliants were pretty new to me before trying this, so I was a little hesitant at first.  This product is super easy to use.  I wet my hands, apply about a teaspoon of product and rub my hands together creating a paste.  Then I massage onto my face and rinse off.  Easy Peasy!

This product is not the least bit harsh and it leaves my skin feeling so smooth and my skin tone looking so much more even.  My skin is instantly brighter after each use.  

Daily Microfoliant from Dermalogica retails for $52 and can be purchased through their website.

Product Review: Rejuveniqe by Monat

Disclaimer: Product provided through iFaboo for the purpose of review.  All opinions expressed are my own.


Monat Global Rejuveniqe Oil Intensive contains a revolutionary blend of 11+ unique molecular ingredients that mimic the body's natural oils to condition and hydrate hair and skin.  I love products that I can use multiple ways, so the fact that this can be used on both the hair and skin was a huge plus for me.


Rejuvenate Oil Intensive contains 11+ unique molecular ingrieidents that include:

Abyssinian: The Key ingredient in Rejuveniqe Oil Intensive. From the crambe abyssinica plant native to central Africa, it’s a rare and unique combination of fatty acids prized for their ability to do everything from mimic the effects of silicon for unbeatable shine; lubricate the hair deep into the follicle; and protect and coat each strand.

Baobab: The renowned baobab trees have grown for centuries in the arid climates of India and Africa, and its exotic oil from the tree’s seeds are rich in antioxidant-rich palmitic acid and Vitamin F.

Buriti: The fruit of Africa’s Moriche palm – known as the Tree of Life – is one of the world’s richest sources of beta-carotene, which moisturizes and nourishes.

Camelia: Also known as tea-seed oil, it’s ultra-hydrating oil responsibly harvested from China that cleans the scalp and pampered dry stands thanks to its abundance of Vitamin E and polyphenols.

Carrot Seed: Specially sourced from the mountains of Switzerland, it’s rich in Vitamin A to condition the scalp, plus Alpha Linolenic Acid for anti-inflammatory protection.

Monoi: Selectively sourced from the warm tropics of Tahiti, it’s a restorative oil rich in Omega 3 and fatty acids to heal damage and promote growth from the root.

Meadowfoam: This oil is sourced right from the Pacific Northwest of the USA. Named for its flowers’ resemblance to white foam on the ocean, meadowfoam oil is another outstanding source of Omega 9 fatty acids for shine and sheen.

Moringa: Ancient Egyptians prized Moringa Oil for its nourishing properties, thanks to antioxidants and Vitamin E, which help combat skin fatigue, plus clean and purify the scalp.


I love products that are multi-functional.  This oil works just as fantastic on your skin as it is on your hair.  On my hair, I love using it as a scalp treatment, applying a few drops to my scalp 10 minutes before washing.  It helps treat and hydrate my sensitive scalp.  I have also mixed it into my conditioner for a deep conditioning treatment and to my ends before styling. On my skin, its fantastic for dry patches on my face, as a cuticle oil and to moisturize my dry elbows.  

Rejuveniqe Intensive Oil retails for $99 and can be purchased through Monat's website.
