          I bought this when it was on sale with the 20% and then repurchased again during 21 days of beauty. I really enjoy this. It exfoliates perfectly, but if used too frequently it can dry your skin if not moisterizing properly. The smell, could be better. I think I may have gotten used to it now. Smells like clay.

                        Comments about Philosophy The Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash:

                        I tried this product in a kit at christmas time and loved it. This is gentle enough to use on my sensitive skin but strong enough to exfoliate well. I use this in the shower after i wash my face. It can be drying sometimes, especially when i leave it on a little longer, but a good moisturizer solves that problem easily. I waited for this to be on sale as a beauty buy to get the bigger bottle, otherwise it is a lil pricey for my budget. However, when i find something i really like that agrees with my skin, i don't mind splurging either.

                              the microdelivery exfoliating wash works well with all skin types. if you are experiencing an active breakout, we recommend waiting until your skin clears up before you use the microdelivery exfoliating wash.

                              the microdelivery exfoliating wash does not remove makeup. we recommend using the microdelivery exfoliating wash each morning, and then use purity made simple to cleanse and remove makeup each evening.

                              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.
