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.

Glowy skin overnight

Really makes my skin look years younger, glowy, and super-soft. No irritation for me. Love this stuff.
I love this product!

I got a sample of this peel and just used it last night. OMG, seriously! This morning my skin felt so soft that I had to look up the price of a full sized one. I had enough left to do a second treatment tonight and it does sting a bit but it's not intolerable. I am definitely going to purchase this after the holidays.

I wake up to smooth and bright skin after using this in the evening.
Nice product but needs better directions
Kate from Michigan
So I got the mini in a sample kit and the mini doesn't have any directions written on the packaging. Since it's called the dream peel assumed it was a facemask so I played it all over my face and start waiting for it to dry. Then I looked at the Ulta Beauty app to see the directions and it said it is not a facemask so what I did is I mixed in some school glue in hopes that it would dry down and I would actually be able to use it. Overall I think the product is great I just think I need better directions. Also that price

Tried a sample pack of this and it felt nice, woke up to a Happy feeling face. I have very dry skin but my face felt good the next morning! Wish it wasn't so expensive tho!

I've used this product a few times now, sometimes 1 night and sometimes 2-3 nights in a row. (The application is a little weird and the product doesn't ever feel like it's totally dry, but I've never noticed anything on my white sheets.) It leaves my skin unbelievably soft in the morning - slightly red but it's temporary.
NLMR from Illinois
I have just awakened from my 2nd night of my 1st 3 night treatment. I noticed a difference after just the 1st night and even more this morning. It has really brightened my skin and gives an over all smooth appearance both in coloration and texture. I'm not one to go through a lot of extra steps in my skin care, I just want it to work and this product does!
Tingle means it works
Kim from COLORADO
I have used many overnight masks and this one is by far my favorite. It dries quickly so that you don't have that horrible sensation of your hair getting into it all night. It does tingle quite a bit when you first put it on, but for me, that feeling quickly dissipated. I woke up looking like I had used my normal, lengthy, expensive nightly ritual. Only more refreshed!

I've noticed a difference in my skin after day one. I am on day 6 and my skin is as soft as a baby's bottom and I noticing my skin is more taunt. It truly delivers on promise. This will be a staple in my regimen. I love it and so does my skin.
You will sold on Day 1
Dorrie22 from Phoenix, AZ
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 :)
Rebekah from Oakland, CA
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!
Rachel_rae09 from North Carolina
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!
