    Comments about Philosophy The Microdelivery Peel:

    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 :)

              Comments about Philosophy The Microdelivery Peel:

              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.

                This product truly is amazing. 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!

                    use 1 time a week to refresh and resurface your skin. it will feel like a burn at first, but with continuous use, maintaining once a week, that will go away. word of caution, do not use your regular face wash before hand, use a very mild wash. I do not use my dermadoctor wash 2 days before i use this product, it is harsh. but the results in the end are amazing! i will never use another. My skin feels like a baby's bottom.

                      Comments about Philosophy The Microdelivery Peel:

                      I decided to invest in this kit versus having micro professionally done. It really does do a fantastic job. It's 2 parts - an exfoliation scrub which you scrub your skin with for a few minutes (which is intense) and then the 2nd part - a layer of gel which turns into something like Bliss Oxygen Facial once it touches the first layer. It brightens and smoothed out my skin. It's exactly like using a Buff Buff for 30 minutes. Nice results.

                      This product is a must have. I use it twice a week to ensure my skin is silky smooth. Definitely helps keep the dewy, flawless complexion. Also my makeup looks EVEN better since my skin is so smooth. Extremely pleased that this was recommended by an Ulta associate. I recommend this to every one I know, especially those who compliment my complexion.

                          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.

                          We recommend using this treatment weekly for best results. You can adjust the frequency of use depending on the tolerance of 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.
