Comments about Philosophy The Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash:

The fact that I'm a budget buyer says something, I splurged on this product and will continue to until I find an affordable dupe. I use wipes to remove my makeup, then I go in with this baby and clean around my face avoiding my eyes. The small beads really do allow you to control the pressure. With larger beads they can cut into your skin and irritate sensitive areas. I find its refreshing and doesn't leave your skin feeling tight and dry like other oil absorbing cleansers can do.

      I use microdelivery exfoliating wash in the mornings for a super way to take off the moisturizers I use at night. That way I'm all set to use my make-up in the morning and I don't have any residue. Great product!

          I love this pressed highlighter! Aside from it being a little over-priced, it's a great item to have in your makeup bag. The upside to that,each one lasts me about 6-7 months It's a great color... you can apply just a little for a subtle glow, or coat it up for a more intense glow. I'm very particular about what I put on my skin, and this highlighter is great for all skin types. It's something that I wear on a daily basis; mainly on my cheeks over my blush/bronzer, but I also love using it on my eyes....it really makes them pop! If you are a first time highlighting user, I think this product would definitely be worth giving a try!

              This is a must have for me in the shower. I have very sensitive skin & had tried this exfoliater as a sample. After trying it for the first time & saw & felt a noticeable difference in how it made the skin on my face feel & look, it's a must have for me. My face never felt & looked so smooth & soft. It's very to use & a little goes a long way.

                      A:

                      the microdelivery exfoliating wash is gentle enough for daily use, and may be used before many of our weekly peels. you may use a toner afterwards, however, if you notice it is a bit too much exfoliation you may want to alternate between the two products.

                      what you are experiencing is a very common occurrence. our products are designed to bring to the surface any underlying issues and then clear them away. this process is called purging. we recommend that you discontinue use of this product until the blemishes have cleared, and then begin your daily exfoliation again. each week, as you continue to use the products your skin should look clearer and clearer.
