      Comments about Philosophy The Microdelivery Exfoliating Facial Wash:

      I purchased this, hoping I would receive the original formula. I received the new version with Vitamin C. It is so thick it slides all over your face and does not exfoliate. Returning. I did an indept search at retail. All the original formula was returned to Philosophy and disposed of. A sad and shameful lose for all the Philosophy Girls. Ultra hold no fault. Damage done by the Philosophy.

            Comments about Philosophy The Microdelivery Exfoliating Facial Wash:

            I needed an exfoliant because I am prone to flaking skin no matter how much I moisturize. I had been using a drug store product that worked but has been discontinued. I heard great things about this brand so I gave it a try.

            Not only did my face become flakier, after a couple of days I broke out in small whiteheads. After some googling it looks like the product over exfoliates my skin.

            I will continue to use it because it smells great and cleans well but no more than one time a week. It's too expensive to just throw out.

            Will NOT repurchase.

                      A:

                      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.
