Comments about Philosophy Resurface The Microdelivery Vitamin C/Peptide Peel:

I got this as a Christmas gift and could not wait to use it! It does wonders for my skin; however it is kinda pricey. I have dry red skin. This made is smoother and more even toned. Smells just like oranges. After use it did make me notice every blemish; I think that's just because it removed so much dead skin. Would recommend it.

      Comments about Philosophy Resurface The Microdelivery Vitamin C/Peptide Peel:

      I like this product. I feel its been better than other exfoliation products that i have used that are similar. For years I would used Mary Kay's microderm; but after using this system I have not gone back to the Mary Kay, which I used for quite some time because of how well I thought it worked.

      When I used this product I could see a noticeable difference in my skin's tone and appearance. Also and most importantly, of all things this treatment has been my biggest defense again the hyperpigmentation that can be experienced, typically of women who are of olive skin color or darker. Those horrific marks can leave you to dread being seen by people with out your makeup. I feel this system is excellent with riding yourself of that hyper pigmentation and working on acne scarring gradually. I recently purchased an Iphone and for the longest time could not figure out why one side of my face was breaking out horridly; leaving one side of my face to be full of embarrassing spots while the other side looked like the skin of another person (I have since then wiped my phone daily with Lysol wipes), this product has gradually improved the texture and appearance of my skin. I stopped using it for a while, out of pure laziness maybe 2-3 months wile I had acne and came to resent the marks and the scaring and was considering a getting a clinical glycolic peel from a doctor which can be very expensive and in the thousands. So after months of researching for the best doctor I reminded myself that I had not been using the system and came up with the idea that I should try this system for 6 months consistently, with confident hopes that my hyper pigmentation and scaring issues can be addressed, before I dropped the $$$$ for the clinical procedure. And I'm confident I can avoid the procedure with consistent use of this for 3, 4,6 months to a year.

          This product delivers excellent exfoliation. If I use it weekly, my skin does so much better. I love salon facials, but lack time to go as often as I need to. This I can do at home in just a few minutes. Can't say enough good things about this product. It is Wonderful!

              Comments about Philosophy Resurface The Microdelivery Vitamin C/Peptide Peel:

              I am battling very deep breakouts due to hormonal changes related to the onset of menopause. I have tried many skincare lines over the last two years with only some luck but never getting my former beautiful skin back. I spent the weekend at a friend's house recently and saw this duo in the shower and decided to give it a try. I immediately noticed my skin felt extra clean and soft. My makeup even looked better after I put it on. When I got home I went out and bought it for myself. After using it every day for about a week and a half, I had one of those moments where I caught a glimpse of myself and thought I looked really pretty. That is a rarity for me. Then I realized the vitamin C is a brightener and that was making my skin even toned, brighter and glowing. Plus my skin was blemish free and my pores appeared diminished. I can't recommend this product enough.

                This stuff is amazing! My friend tld me about it.. and I thought the clarisonic made your skin feel great, man.. was I wrong! Comparing this exfoliating feeling to the mia, there is no comparison! The only downside is when you do run out, having to shell out that much in one sitting on something so tiny. As someone who has always disliked her complexion and has had mild acne for forever, its well worth the money. Buy this stuff if you are looking for something that will make you feel great about the skin you're in!

                      A:

                      We recommend The Oxygen Peel, as this product will help address congested, blocked pores while detoxifying the skin. The Microdelivery Vitamin C/Peptide Peel would not be recommended if you are experiencing any active breakouts.

                      If you are interested in daily care that would address the large pore size, we recommend No Reason To Hide Total Skin Tone Correcting Serum and No Reason To Hide Moisturizer. These products will help address acne marks, pore size, blotchiness, dark spots, redness and rough texture in two easy steps.

                      From Philosophy:

                      "without seeing your skin and performing a skin-wellness checkup, it is difficult to say. in theory the microdelivery vitamin c/peptide peel is excellent for rough texture and improving overall skin smoothness. if you do not have current acne flare ups this peel will help overall texture and appearance of your skin. the vitamin c crystals will exfoliate, will help brighten the skin and help promote new collagen, the lactic and salicylic acid blend will exfoliate and help reduce rough texture and the peptides will help firm the skin. it all depends on the severity of your post-acne scars. if you decide to try the microdelivery peel, we would recommend to use as directed (1-2 weekly) and follow a skin care routine daily. other products that could help your skin’s overall texture is the miracle worker miraculous retinoid pads, for use in the evenings and follow with your favorite lightweight moisturizer. this can help with overall skin texture."

                      Philosophy’s peels' formulas only use the highest dermatological standards, and the actual percentages are proprietary information. The formulas are also high performance and contain the optimal levels of ingredients to be effective and safe.

                      In a clinical study, 100% of clients that tried The Microdelivery Peel mentioned that their skin was smoother after just one use, and 88% thought that their skin felt more hydrated after using the peel.
