Most Helpful Positive Review LOVE-But a little confused.
I LOVE PEELS. Philosophy sent this to me to try and to leave an honest review(Awesome program!). I used this for the 3 consecutive nights as instructed.
However, the instructions don't tell you how much to use per application.
I used liberally, and now the 1.7 oz bottle looks as though it's only half full now.
So....is this product only good for approximately 6 applications total? If this is the case it's too pricey for me.
I did like it though! It's so nice to wake up with such smooth skin after you rinse the product off in the AM.
My recommendation is to put it on an hour before bed to allow to fully dry and this solves any momentary "sticky" feeling. Sensitive skin gals, it will have a medium warm/tingle for up to 15 minutes after application(in my experience). But it does calm down.
I'm thankful to have tried this product. But I probably won't purchase this until the instructions are clearer.
After a few tweaks(if Philosophy is open to helpful changes) this product has the potential to be a best seller.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not bad, not great
I've now used this product for three weeks (two days consecutively the first week, three days consecutively the second and third weeks). Upon application i didn't feel any burning or tingling as other users have mentioned, which surprised me since I do have sensitive skin. I might just use so many other exfoliators that I'm used to it. The first two weeks my face looked slightly red the next day and I was less than impressed with the results. After week three I noticed slight changes. My complexion was more even and my pores were a biiiiit smaller. All in all though, I wasn't impressed with the product. It wasn't bad but it wasn't great. If it was cheaper I might consider buying it again, but for the price I think there are better peels on the market.

I used this 3 times a week for every other week for 2 months now. I think using clean finger tips is much easy to evenly spread versus the applicator on the tube. I noticed my skin is softer after using it. I love how you simply wash it off the next morning as well. I will be purchasing again for certain...just hope it goes no sale :)

I'm glad I bought this when there was 30% off, otherwise it wouldn't be worth it...I've used this product for 3 weeks before writing a review. First, I've found using my fingers rather than the applicator to be much better. Second, the first few minutes stings but it goes away! I thought it would rub off on my pillow during the night but didn't have an issue with it. I didn't notice much change in my pores though(main reason for 3 stars)...But, I did notice most of the dark scars from my acne healed and are almost unnoticeable.
Absolutely life changing!

One of my favorite products yet! After one night I felt a difference! My skin has improved so much since this product!! First time I did apply too thick, and when you do it is tacky and takes longer to dry down. But after that, I learned and I love it! 1000% suggest this to anyone wanting to improve their skin!
Would not buy this product again

this product immediately started burning my face as soon as I put it on.
Myra from Odessa Texas
As much as I wanted to like this product, it just didn't live up to the hype. After a few uses it worked very minimal. Upon application, I expected the gel to dry into a peel. Instead it stayed moist on my skin all night, Which made it for an uncomfortable night since I was afraid it would rub off. It applies to the skin in a reddish hue. When I went to wash it off in the morning it left my skin soft but slightly dyed my face red. Skin didn't feel rejuvenated. You could probably find a better product that leaves your skin feeling great and is less expensive.
You can buy for MUCH less other places...
Tiffany from Franklin,TN
Saw results and minimized my fine lines but knocked a point off for hating the feeling on my skin. I put it on before bed, let dry and go to sleep. Clean it off in the morning for best results.
Legit got this off N rack for under twenty five dollars. This sold out at that price. Then got my next tube for forty five on a TV selling channel that is sponsored by a shark on shark tank. Don't know why Ulta is charging sixty?
So easy once I got used to it
ceceb from Maryland
I use this product for 3 days per week and after the initial week, saw a huge difference in my pores and skin texture. The very first time I used it, I used too much of the formula and it didn't dry down well. The second time, I put on a much thinner coat and it dried down perfectly.
What I also liked, is since this is an overnight peel, I didn't have to do my long nightly routine on those days, which stretches out how long my retinol and moisturizing products will last.

Only thing I've noticed is that it is very expensive. Haven't seen any significant results.
Nicholeticich from Utah
I've been using this product for 2 months now and I love how it works. It makes your face so smooth in the morning, I'll rinse it off with just water in the am and my skin looks amazing. I have begun to just rub it in with my fingertips once I have applied it on my face though, I found the applicator was too hard to work with and it works much better! Gives me a great glow!
I would recommend this product
Xacil from Los Angeles
Love that I can put it on and not worry about removing it until the next morning.
HoneyB from Peoria Az
I've been a Philosophy gal for over 15 years. I am so sorry to say that this is the worst product I have ever used. It is so sticky and made my face feel so dirty while it was on. I tried it twice and couldn't use it anymore. I don't know how the product itself works.
Great overnight results!
Alli_may from undisclosed
I had great results after using this product. After the first night of using it, I could definitely notice an improvement of the tightness and tone of my skin the next day. And then on day 3, as I was leaving an appointment, the lady at the front desk told me that I look younger every time I come in, so that compliment pretty much speaks for itself. Awesome!
I also thought the design of the bottle with the spatula end was brilliant. It made applying it a breeze. Didn't have to worry about getting any of the peel on my hands or using a separate applicator(s) which would have been more wasteful/messy. Great product overall!
Alex from Indiana
I love this product! My skin feels soft and rejuvenated. It is the high quality that I expect when using Philosophy products. I can't wait to use it again! It brightened my skin and helped keep blemishes away. I received this product complimentary for review purposes.
Love it !
Fitnfab from Kansas
used this for three weeks, 3 times a week . I absolutely love how smooth it made my skin and I definitely see that my dark spots have lightened. It's not to be compared to professional peeling treatments, but its definitely a worth buying product for at home skin peeling treatment, or also can be used in between professional peeling treatments . I received this product complimentary for review purposes.
Would buy again!
Alyce from North Carolina
First I absolutely love the packaging!!! The spatula like applicator is amazing. I used the product 2 consecutive days at a time and saw results in the first week. I would definitely purchase again!
The real deal on anti aging magic
Gwyn from Birmingham Al
I used the peel for three nights. The first morning my skin already felt smoother. The second day the dry areas around my nose and mouth weren't looking dry, but smooth. The third morning I swear my mouth, nose and eyes visibly smoother! I'm adding this to my routine for suuure!
Wasn't for me
Cyn from New Haven, CT
I received this item for free to try from #Influenster. So this item had some pros and cons for me. It was very easy to apply, and was not messy. It made my face soft, and minimized pores. My face felt plump in a very good way. Unfortunately, it did cause my face to be red for over a day. I wouldn't say I have sensitive skin, but maybe there was some kind of ingredient that just didn't agree with my skin.
Laly from Dallas, Texas
This peel has honestly worked quite well for me in the 3 wks total I've used it. Starting with the reduction of some minor acne scarring I've had for a while, since I have acne prone/oily skin. All the way to just improving the overall skin texture on my face. I won't say my face is perfect now, but I've definitely seen changes. However, I haven't seen any difference with my pores, but that's probably bc I haven't used it enough yet. I will say that the peel will tingle a little upon application, you may even feel a somehow stinging sensation, but that quickly goes away after you wash off the product. Make sure you moisturize very well afterwards, otherwise, you might experience some dryness, but that's normal with any peel, in my opinion. I was given this product complimentary, but opinions are entirely my own.
Great at home peel treatment
Boymom22 from Tucson, AZ
Love this product! So easy to use, love the applicator. Great that you wear it all night so it has a long time to work. Some redness after application, but
Was gone by the morning and my skin felt amazing. Best after 3 days.
Great Results and an Easy Application
Michelle - Arftful Ambler from Austin, TX
I was really surprised with how gentle this was on my sensitive skin. I noticed brighter, softer, more even skin, and did not experience any burning sensation like I expected to with sensitive skin. However, I did notice increased sensitivity on the third use, so I will likely only use this treatment for two days at a time instead of three (like the product recommends).
The applicator makes this product incredibly easy to apply, as well!
Mild peel, great for sensitive skins
Emartin from Pittsburgh PA
First of all, instructions say that you should sleep with it and I think that is unnecessary. You can put it on, wait 15 minutes wash it off etc. However, I did sleep with it a couple of times and my pores seemed cleaner. My skin is always soft after using it. I am used to using 25% AHA,BHA (drunk elephant baby facial) and this seems like a great alternative to that, especially in the winter times when my skin is more sensitive. People who are just starting to use acids should definitely give this a try. But if you are used to higher concentration of acids, this is not for you. I will be incorporating this to my skin care routine. I received this product complementary for testing purposes.
Absolutely love this product !! < 3
Lisa G. from Phoenix, AZ
I absolutely loved this product. Let me just start with I have sensitive skin and am sensitive to scents. This product did not irritate my skin and the scent was pleasant enough and not over powering. Not only that I noticed a visible difference in my skin in just a few uses.
kaywee from Ohio
I received this as a free sample in my voc box. I'm obsessed with the applicator, its to easy to use. the mask does have a slight tining sensation but my skin feels so much softer in the AM
BeingMrsParry from Billings, MT
This worked great to get my skin soft, but I find it interesting that it's labeled as a "peel" when no feeling is involved. It took a long time to dry, which was another bummer.
So far so good!
Breezy from Los Angeles, Ca
Packaging is my favorite part of this product! Very gentle for an over the night peel. I've been using it for about two weeks consistently and can already see improvements on my skin texture. I can't wait to finish this tube and see how my skin looks!
