Find the Philosophy peel that's best for you



Step 1: Apply a teaspoon amount to clean, dry skin. Once applied, crystals should appear almost like a mask. Gently massage in a circular motion over entire face for up to 60 seconds, avoiding eye area. Do not scrub. (Use less pressure for sensitive skin)

Step 2: Place a generous teaspoon amount in the palm of your hand. Massage gel onto fingertips, and apply on top of crystals. As activator is applied, a warming sensation will occur. White foam will appear, indicating activation. Leave foam on 2-3 minutes to infuse vitamin c and peptides to the skin. (You can massage foam for extra exfoliating benefits or let it sit for sensitive skin) Rinse thoroughly. (You can use a washcloth for removal, to avoid getting the peel in your hair.)

      I am so grateful to the young lady that assisted me in finding this product after explaining to her what was happening to my face. I have been having a lot of problems with my face being so flaky after washing and this has helped me so much. Thank you.

      OMG...the best peel I have ever tried

        Comments about Philosophy The Microdelivery Resurfacing Peel:

        As I've aged through my 30s, I've noticed that my skin has lost a degree of elasticity; fine lines are becoming more noticable around my eyes and expression lines are deepening in my forehead; my skin tone has begun to show signs of patchiness and uneven texture from occasional days spent in the San Diego sun. This product is like a polisher for all of that! It's like a retexturizer for my skin tone, smoothing everything out. You have to be a little liberal with the activator, though. You want the orange crystals to fully emulsify with the gel as you rub it into your face; when it's working it'll turn a white-ish color and change texture. After using it in the evening I layer when hope is not enough retinol cream and either the original hope in a jar OR miracle worker, depending on the time of year. I absolutely cannot recommend this company enough. I have discovered multiple friends have independently drifted to this company's product line over the years, which is sayin' something!

              Comments about Philosophy The Microdelivery Resurfacing Peel:

              I've been so discouraged with my skin for several months. I've fallen victim to severe hormonal acne around my cycle which has been so embarrassing being just 28. I couldn't tell you how many different cleansers I have used before discovering philosophy. I started with the charcoal peel which worked great but didn't get past the surface. I fought between choosing the acne system they offer and this peel but decided to go with the peel since the acne isn't constant and I didn't want something targeted just for acne. In one use, I knew this was money well spent. My face was smooth and bright. I opted to use the product for there nights in a row and by the third morning, my skin tone was more even and the blemishes dramatically reduced. This product does have salicylic acid which helps control blemishes plus added benefits that I haven't been getting from other cleansers. I now use this every 2-3 days in addition to the purity face wash and use the charcoal in between twice a week. My face hasn't looked better in years.

                Comments about Philosophy The Microdelivery Resurfacing Peel:

                The product did not perform as promised. When the second of two steps was performed, the instructions stated that a white foam would appear. It did not. Additionally, it only minimally made my skin feel smoother but not much, and no better than less expensive products. I plan to go back to the store with it. I'll ask them if I did anything wrong. If not, I want to return it.

                Comments about Philosophy The Microdelivery Resurfacing Peel:

                I have acne and this has helped smooth out old scabbing and lightened up some scars. I did find there was an initial break out the first time I used it because it brings everything to the surface. Well worth the money.

                      This is my 3rd or 4th time buying the Philosophy Microdelivery Peel. I use it once weekly as a microdermabrasion. It makes my products work so much better, my makeup go on smoother, and my skin look so smooth. I have sensitive, eczema-prone skin and this doesn't give me any problems.
