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

        I got this with really high hopes. The product claims to help smooth rough texture, even skin tone and minimize the appearance of fine lines. It definitely exfoliates incredibly well and leaves your skin feeling smooth and flawless because it is an intensive exfoliator. However, after using it about 10 times, I have seen no improvements in my fine lives, dullness, or uneven skin tone (which are the 3 I really wanted it for). Im still in my early 20s, and have fine lines on my forehead and expression lines at the nose/mouth area, and was hoping this would help fade them. I also was hoping the Vitamin C would brighten up my skin tone and fade acne scarring. Unfortunately, this is only great as an exfoliator.

            I was nervous to use this because I have very sensitive skin but I worked wonders! My skin is so soft when I'm finished and my pores are already shrinking. I finish it off with the Renewed Hope In A Jar and my face feels like a dream. I love Philosophy. Even though my husband doesn't like the price this is what I splurge on!!

                  I have always had trouble finding a good scrub that will help to clear and smooth my skin without irritating my rosacea. I use this product once or twice a week without having to worry about red flare ups. I can tell a noticeable difference in how even, smooth, and bright my face looks for days after I use it. I would recommend this product for sure!

                        This peel definitely makes skin smoother. It provides good exfoliation and doesn't irritate my skin, which is a big plus on its-own. Other than that I didn't notice any changes. I might as well use less expensive scrub/peel suitable for a sensitive acne-prone skin.

                              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.

                              "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.

Yes, this is an exfoliating product formulated with vitamin C/peptide resurfacing crystals, lactic acid, and salicylic acid to improve skin texture and clarity.

                              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.
