Eminence Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant Review

I've Switched to This Powder Exfoliant, and I'm Never, Ever Looking Back

I'm obsessed with exfoliation. The feeling of sloughing off dead cells on the surface of your skin is thrilling in a way that only fellow skincare aficionados can appreciate. But ever since I scrubbed too hard with my mom's mail-order exfoliant in seventh grade and ended up beet red at school the next day, I've been on the hunt for a gentle product that won't inflame my sensitive skin.

After trying scores of viscous gels with now-banned microbeads and thick creams with mashed apricot and walnut shells, I found my solution in an unexpected form: powder.

Éminence's Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant ($48) was recommended to me years ago by an esthetician at a spa that carries the organic line. I'd long been a fan of their island-scented Tropical Vanilla Day Cream ($68), so I took her advice and picked up the powder.


The Dermafoliant is mainly composed of a trio of powders: rice, chickpea, and oat. Together, these gently buff and smooth the skin, absorbing excess oil. Meanwhile, the salicylic acid contained in the strawberry component works as an astringent, shrinking pores and brightening your complexion. Rhubarb's ascorbic acid and vitamins reduce wrinkles, and the added lactic acid improves overall skin texture.

I use it every other day, and I have a special technique. Éminence recommends combining a dime-size amount with half a teaspoon of water. While this works just fine, I've found that my skin gets really smooth if I mix that dime-size amount with a gentle cleanser rather than water. My go-to has become the Calm Skin Chamomile Cleanser ($38). It's a cream cleanser, and combined with the Dermafoliant, the concoction buffs my skin while simultaneously calming it.

Yes, I am a genius.

In care you're still balking at that $48 price tag, let me assure you that one bottle lasts me roughly an entire year. If you've been struggling to find an exfoliation routine that works for you, this might be the key to smooth skin success!
