Charcoal seems to be quite a common beauty ingredient in the last few years whereas a powder face exfoliator like this one is more uncommon. I've come across a powder ones like this and this a few times over the years, so is it safe to say that a powder exfoliators are going to be a new trend in skin care? Only time will tell!
DERMALOGICA Daily Superfoliant ($58/2oz @ dermalogica.com, ulta.com) is a powder exfoliant that’s activated when mixed with water. It contains alpha hydroxy acids and a new anti-pollution technology, which uses Binchotan Charcoal, to help purify the skin from daily toxins from the environment. And then it uses Niacinamide, red algae and Tara Fruit Extract to keep new exterior toxins at bay. The environment is a major anti-ager with all that the skin has to face! So to give your face a thorough cleansing with this one, they recommend mapping out the face and massaging the activated product in small circles around it. There is a brochure inside the box that goes into more detail.
What I like about this one is that it stays fresh until you activate it so no rush to use it up in a specific amount of time.
Just tap out half a teaspoon to wet hands and create a creamy paste. Then rub around the face for about 1 minute and rinse. And it’s formulated without fragrance, color or parabens.
Are you ready for a new trend in the beauty category?
