      Comments about Philosophy The Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash:

      This is such a great product, I can't rave about it enough. I need my skin to be exfoliated often or else it looks dull... but doing it too often can really damage the skin and it's moisture balance. This product is gentle enough to be used everyday, which I do. I am noticing a difference. It isn't a miracle worker, but it does what it's supposed to. I love the Philosophy line and if you coupled this baby with the hope in a jar... you got gold my friend.

          Comments about Philosophy The Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash:

          I bought this in the 4 oz bottle at another store when I needed a few more dollars to get free shipping. I was ordering a 16 oz bottle of Purity after getting the 4 oz travel size at Ulta and falling in love with how efficiently it removed my makeup.

          I use this in the morning because I use Purity at night to remove makeup and then follow up with Paula's Choice acne cleanser and my Clarisonic as unhealthy college cafeteria food is causing tiny pimples on my forehead. I love the texture of this scrub. Its kind of milky with a gritty texture when you spread it on your skin. I don't have to use very much of it to get good exfoliation.

          The only downside to this would be if you accidentally get one of the exfoliating particulates in your eye. They're painful and hard to get out so now I make sure to stay as far away from my eyes as possible and repeatedly rinse my eye area before opening them.

          I did also get one of those deep down pimples that are under the skin,red and hurt like the dickens. I haven't gotten one like this in years and it appeared shortly after I started using this product. That being said, I'm due for my birth control shot at the end of this week so seems more likely that its due to that and not the scrub itself.

          I highly recommend this product and will continue to use it for as long as it's effective.

            I have very oily skin and this product is the only thing that helps to really remove the dead skin cells and oil and let my fresh face shine through. I would use this every day or all over my face, but it's great for exfoliating your T zone.

                  Comments about Philosophy The Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash:

                  This stuff is amazing. After having a baby, my skin changed dramatically and became so dry and parched. I suffered from using harsh drugstore brand cleansers and exfoliators with beads that did not exfoliate. It only further aggravated my dry skin. Foundation didn't sit right on my skin even after intensive moisturizing with the gamut of moisturizers. I finally researched and found this little gem that had worked for someone else with persistent dry skin and I gave it a try. It worked amazingly and still does. In the beginning, I used it twice a day and it was gentle enough. It very quickly got rid of all my dry patches and my skin is awesome now. I recommend this to anyone

                  Love the exfoliating. Ulta associate suggested using in mornings and the Purity made simple at night to remove makeup. Sometimes use after purity when I need an extra boost of clean.

                        You would alternate use of Purity Cleanser with The Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash; i.e., use Purity as your cleanser in the AM, and Microdelivery in the PM, or vice versa.

                        The Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash is designed to be used as a daily wash with Philosophy products containing HPR Retinoids, such as Miracle Worker Miraculous Anti-Aging Retinoid Pads. It will help with sloughing off dead skin cells. HPR Retinoids are gentle enough to use in the same skin care routine.

                        Absolutely! This product, used daily, provides regular, gentle exfoliation that helps buffer fine lines, even skin tone, and give skin a healthy glow. It also rids skin of dulling debris and helps your anti-aging treatment products (serums & creams) penetrate deeper for improved efficacy.
