Comments about Philosophy The Microdelivery Peel:

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 The Microdelivery 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!

              I have used this product once a week for the past month. I purchased this to replace my Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion, and I am happy with the switch. I feel like it is not as harsh yet smooths my skin just as well. The first step is similar to most high-end scrubs, but the second step really gives your skin the "glow" of healthy skin. I wish the price wasn't so steep; however, I'll probably make the investment again :)

                  This is a incredible product. It is costly but with proper use will last more than six month using once a week as I do. It is skin refining. Transform skin from rough to smooth. Your face will look smooth and luminous. I use over damp skin. I have extremely sensitive skin and have no problem with this. It does have a warming feeling once both products are on your skin but no worries it is not burning your face.

I have been obsessed with beauty products for over 15 years, and also have my esthetician license, and have experimented with tons of different products. This product does an excellent job of exfoliating all that dead skin off and will leave your skin glowing!

                        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.

                        We do not recommend using Philosophy Resurface The Microdelivery Vitamin C/Peptide Peel on open or inflamed skin, as it could exacerbate these issues. Philosophy Resurface The Microdelivery Vitamin C/Peptide Peel is okay to use on skin with minor breakouts.

                        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."

                        Yes, this peel exfoliates and resurfaces the skin, boosting skin cell turnover to fade pigmentation such as sun spots and to promote even skin tone.

                        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.

                        We recommend using Philosophy Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser (Item #: 2209138) with your Clarisonic facial cleansing device, as this will provide the best cleansing benefits. We do not recommend using Philosophy The Microdelivery Peel with your Clarisonic, since the intense combined exfoliation might be too harsh and abrasive for your skin.

                        If your primary concern is skin texture, fine lines, and/or skin discoloration, this product is ideal to smooth and resurface rough texture, to help minimize the look of fine lines, and to help brighten and even skin tone. If your primary concern is the advanced signs of aging, we recommend Philosophy Miracle Worker Miraculous Anti-Aging Retinoid Pads (Item #: 2219947), a nightly treatment that features high performance retinoid (HPR) technology and is clinically proven to visibly improve advanced signs of aging, including wrinkles, discoloration, uneven skin tone and rough texture.
