Most Helpful Positive Review Must Have!
I've been using these once a week as recommended for a few years now and would not be without them. 30 seconds each week is all it takes and my skin is soft and smooth. I'm in my late 30's going into 40 soon and still experience the occasional hormonal breakouts. I find that as you age, it takes longer for any scarring to fade after a breakout. These peel pads truly help keep the skin bright and help fade these dark post-breakout marks over time for me. My skin is sensitive but I have no issues at all with these pads causing any irritation. I use these in the PM 1x per week and I follow with the renewed hope moisturizer. The pads are of a very generous size and saturated, so you'll even have enough for the back of your hands and elbows! I made the mistake of not reordering these in time. My skin really felt the difference and looked dull for the couple of weeks I went without, so I will not be without them again. Philosophy: please do not discontinue these...Please!
Most Helpful Critical Review Very inconsistent formula!
Let me start off by saying when the formula/consistency is correct this is the BEST everyday exfoliator EVER! I have used this for years. It is the only exfoliator that keeps my skin balanced and acne free. If I go a day without using it my skin feels awful. The last time I made a purchase I purchased 3 - 32 oz bottles because of a promo code. The first bottle wasn't that great. It was very watery. I thought maybe it got watered down from the shower head accidentally hitting it. I had to throw it out before using even 20% of the huge bottle. The second bottle I opened up was like gummy gel. There was no exfoliating whatsoever. I started thinking that I received old batches and that's why they were so bad. I threw the second bottle out after 2 uses. I opened the third bottle - it was the prefect consistency that I was used to! I just finished that last bottle. I am really apprehensive about purchasing more because it appears I am not the only one having problems with the consistency. It is expensive, but worth it when the consistency is correct. However, it's expensive to ship these back when it's not correct! What is going on????

I've been using this exfoliating face wash for several years. I usually use it in the morning during my shower. I find my moisturizer works better.
Good product, horrible packaging.
Emily from Tennessee
The product works great. It's a thick scrub that gently but effectively exfoliates skin. However, the packaging is awful. I cannot understand how anyone thought it was a good idea. It's impossible to get out of the tiny opening. There are other scrubs that are just as effective with much better packaging and I will most definitely buy those over this product fully due to the packaging.
I truly like this product I used, derma preclense first
CC from San Lorenzo
I love this product, especially using the Dermalogica preclense first, then using microdelivery after, it makes my skin feels really soft, and smooth, very refreshing, its help a lot with my skin, its naturally oily skin, and this products help me a lot with that,
I truly love this product.
Will buy again!!
Reta from MO
I alternate this with the Purity Face Wash. It is so gentle yet I really can see a difference after using it. And...it just takes a small amount to use so it lasts forever! You won't be disappointed in this product!!
Lea from Maryland
Great face wash
Magical Product, Horrible Container
Pookiedear from NC
Absolutely magical product! I will never use anything else now! I have somewhat sensitive skin and always struggle with redness. BUT I also always struggle with clogged pores. For a long time I thought it was acne, now I really it was just breakouts due to easily clogged pores. THIS STUFF IS MAGIC! It completely cleans out my pores and makes my skin feel so clean and soft, and it somehow manages this without irritating my skin! I've never met an exfoliating face wash that I can actually use daily until this one! Magic I tell you!!
The only reason I knocked off a star is because the bottle is a joke. It's a thick scrub but for some reason these people thought it made sense to put it in a hard plastic bottle. It's basically a workout every day in the shower trying to squeeze some out. 5-star product, 0-star packaging. I'll change my review to 5 stars in a heartbeat if you guys switch to a squeeze bottle. Until then I guess I need to find my own squeeze bottle and transfer the scrub to that.
This works great
FranA from NY
Always wondered if this was worth the price tag. It is! Got a small one to try it out and will be repurchasing. I use it a couple times a week in the shower. Keeps my face smooth and blemish free.
A Nice Surprise
Theresa F. from Dallas, Texas
I use this as my morning cleanser. I love it!! It's refreshing and doesn't leave my skin tight. It doesn't strip away any of my previous evening routine.
Love this exfoliating facial wash
CocoJ from Granite Bay, CA
I use this product in the shower. Easy to use, and not too abrasive. My skin feels truly "clean" after I use this philosopy product!
gc from Philadelphia
helps with my acne a lot.
Statik from Philadelphia
I have the most sensitive skin ever plus rosacea and I love this exfoliating wash. It really helps get all the dead skin off without being overly harsh on my skin. For me it's a little too much on its own so I actually mix it with a dollop of the Purity wash and gently rub it into my skin. I also only use it every other day.
On star removed because the bottle is a little bit of a pain to squeeze. I turn it upside down and shake hard so I don't have to fight too much with it
CMC from Philadelphia
I thought the complaints about the bottle were petty until I got it. The bottle really does suck, it's hard to squeeze.
But the actual wash is great. Great exfoliated, leaves my skin soft and bright.
Very good product
Norma56 from Indiana
Love this product will keep using
Great morning wash!
Jes from NY
One of my favorite face products. I use 2-3 times a week so I don't like I am over-exfoliating, but also just enough to feel refreshed. A little bit goes a long way and I think the price point is fair.
Monica from EDGERTON,KS
Actually, this isnt a bad exfoliator for people with sensitive skin. Its mild enough for that. For me although I have sensitive skin it didnt do enough. However, its a heck of a lot better than the regular cleanser by this brand. After using this I still felt I needed some sort of regular cleanser after using it to smooth my skin out better. Not horrible but not great either. I ended up tossing it after a few uses.
I love it!!!
MrsHalsey from Philadelphia, PA
It's super gentle but it definitely gets the dead skin off I use it with my Michael Todd skin cleansing brush and my skin feels amazing! I love it... I use it every other day at night.
It is really working
Tai95 from Oregon
I used it just for a couple of weeks and noticed that my pores decreased in size. I use it once a day in the evening. It is gentle but effective, has nice texture and doesn't smell bad. It is not harsh and feels nice on the skin
NICE BUT NOT WORTH THE PRICE
yourgirlH from Chicago
very small bottle, came damaged. Ulta did fix it by sending me another in the mail and because they can't except the old damaged one back, there was zero hassle of having to pay to ship back and zero wait time. So I applaud them on that, plat member- close to diamond, frequent buyer and I just think it's so mediocre. I prefer dermalogica, I have eczema so it's just a better fit. For SUPER SENSITIVE SKIN it's slightly drying.
Heidi from Massachusetts
I was using derma Logica products for a few years now and decided I wanted to tone it down on the price range of my products and was all together not satisfied anymore with the products so I decided to do some research and stumbled upon philosophy! I am so please with this line. Especially this daily exfoliating wash. I use it each morning and for the last two weeks my pores and face all together has looked much healthier and fresher! With this product not only do I see results I am getting much more product and saving money as well. Highly recommend
I love this product!
kkneal from Lufkin, Texas
I got this as a sample gift and literally the first time I used it, it made my skin feel amazing. My nose area stays very flaky and after just one use, it made. World of difference. I use it now about 3 days a week and my skin has never felt and looked better!
Butterstweak from Michigan
I use this several times a week and it leaves my skin feeling clean and glowing.
My go to facial scrub
Ro's mama from OH
This scrub has gotten me through pregnancy break-outs and the current "mask-ne" (face mask breakouts) I am experiencing from wearing a mask 12+ hours as a nurse. It's gentle enough to use everyday and leaves my skin smooth and soft without overly drying it.
A necessity for me
Ruthie from TX
This is fountain of youth in a bottle for me. It has changed my appearance much for the better since I started using it
Great for sensitive skin
Lane from Mechanicsville VA
I love this product! Bought it during the 21 days of beauty deals and will definitely be buying it again. It's become one of my stables in skin care. This leaves my face feeling refreshed and clean after a 12 hour nursing night shift. I also have rosacea and it didn't cause it to break out which is a definite plus. My skin is a little sensitive for maybe 15 minutes after using, but that's what you ask for when you're exfoliating. I use this wash 3-4 days a week after work and I love it, a definite must have.
my go to exfoliater
Miss Ann from Greenville NC
It takes away the dead skin to make your skin feel really smooth. I love that it's gentle enough to use everyday. The only thing with the packaging I would have them change is the opening in the cap need to be bigger so it is easier to get out in shower and it doesn't clog up after time.
