This works great for acne prone skin! However, it does dry your face out so after using it I use moisturizing face lotion and it's amazing! I use it every night. I typically have oily skin but I noticed this help with it! Never hurts to try.

Love/Hate Relationship...

By SJ

from Oregon

Comments about Philosophy The Microdelivery Exfoliating Facial Wash:

Like the product, HATE the packaging!!

This wash is nice, especially since I got it on sale. It's gentle enough to use everyday and I have fairly sensitive skin. A little also goes a long way so that's nice.

But, the bottle itself though was so stiff I could barely squeeze it to get the product out. Technically the front of the bottle was rock hard and the back half of the bottle was fine. It was very annoying so I ended up pouring all the product into another bottle.

          The thicker formula is great! Not runny like the old formula. You use less because of the thickness. Love the new scent. Citrus. Not overpowering.

            • Q:

              I have been using this for about 2 weeks. Just within the past few days I have noticed more and more breakouts happening around my mouth, along with dryness on my T-zone. I am wondering if this is common with this product. I would like to think that it is just bringing everything up to the surface and after the breakouts it will just clear up my skin. I want to keep using this product because I like it but if the breakouts shouldn't be happening I want to stop using it immediately.

                Yes, it is common for your skin to go through a (Purging) phase as you are introducing a new product to the skin. However, if the breakouts continue or are accompanied by any other reactions, discontinue use and please contact Philosophy Customer Development Center for further assistance at 1-800-568-3151

                A:

                No, the Microdelivery Exfoliating Facial Wash helps to scrub away impurities and the buildup of dead skin cells - skin feels clean and hydrated and looks more even-toned. We would recommend the Purity Made Simple Exfoliating Clay Mask, it helps draw out impurities, scrub away blackheads and shrink the look of pores.
