    They have added a strong fragrance to this product at I won't use it on my face ever again. I have no idea why they changed it--no dermatologists who plan their products??

      Brought this product when Ulta was having one of its amazing sales. Well worth it. My skin is so smooth since I started using this. The only con is that my face feels dry after rinsing. No biggie. I follow up with the Neutrogena foaming face wash which adds back the moisture and use the matching Neutrogena toner. My skin has improved big time

        Have never used this product, but got it on a whim. So glad I did, it is amazing. My skin is sensitive, and with the change of seasons, is on the dry side at the moment, but this product left my face feeling clean, and skin soft

          Comments about Philosophy The Microdelivery Exfoliating Facial Wash:

          I had been looking for a concentrated and effective exfoliating cleanser for a very long time and I had been using formula 10.0.6 mask/scrub cleanser for quite awhile but I found it to be quite drying and abrasive every time I would use it morning and night. My skin being mostly oily sensitive (sometimes combination sensitive) and acne-prone, I needed something that exfoliates and deep cleans without over drying. I mix a little bit with some of the Clear Days Ahead cleanser in the shower so that i can use my night treatment before bed and only use microexfoliating cleanser when i wakeup. The microexfoliating cleanser is my ride or die now and my face doesn't feel properly clean without it. Overall it's DEFINITELY worth the money because a little bit goes a very long way!

                I usually do not like spending a lot of money on one product, however after reading the reviews of this product, I decided to give it a try. I am so glad I did! A little bit goes a long way and my skin feels soft and smooth after using it. It is not harsh on my face, which is a nice surprise. People say you get what you pay for, and with this product that is so true.

                    Because Melasma is a diagnosed skin condition, we always recommend that you check with your physician before using any new products.

                    A:

                    The Microdelivery Exfoliating Facial Wash is not recommended for use on Acne prone skin. You may want to try the Clear Days Ahead line for Acne prone skin. Also the Purity Made Simple Facial cleanser is great for all skin types.
