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????
Reviewed by 1819 customers Amazing facial cleanser!
MaraE from MA
This is the perfect cleanser for my skin. I'm 42 and have combo skin. This product has the perfect amount of exfoliant and leaves my skin silky smooth. In the colder months, my skin is more on the dry side and this does not cause irritation or over-drying like I've experienced with other brands. It is a really well balanced product!
Used to like it but now it's gummy
Sara from Chicago
I used to love this but I can't stand it now. It's beyond gummy. I couldn't get it out of the last bottle so I put it into a different bottle and I can't stand how gummy it is. It's kind of gross. I don't know what happened but I don't know if I'll buy again
Ashley from Alabama
I've used this for several days, and I must say after the first use I noticed a difference in my skin!! My skin can be rough around my chin and my pores tend to clog easily. After using this my skin feels soo smooth! I love it!! I'll definitely be buying this again!
It really works!!!
Chrissy from Southfield Mi

Emily from Wisconsin
Absolutely worth every penny. I (Mom) love it! My son and boyfriend do as well. Saw clearer skin after one use.
My favorite morning wash!
Laci R from MS
I've bought on several occasions. It's by far my favorite morning face wash!
I totally will continue to buy this product!
Rach the mom from Northport, Fl
I used to only buy an apricot scrub for exfoliation. I went to get a facial and the lady said that product can tear the skin! This product gives the exfoliation without the feeling of being to rough! I love it!
Mini scrub with big punch!
Jen from Michigan
When you first put it on your hand you think no way these little scrubs will clean my face...then you wash your face and you have never felt something so soft pure and clean from one little drop of face soap! A little goes a long way and it sure does feel refreshing after a wash.13/10 would recommend, just wish it was cheaper. When you see it on sale BUY!
PuzzlePieces from San Antonio TX
This stuff is amazing and very effective. I'd recommend not using daily for those with sensitive skin. My skin is sensitive and I definitely feel like it's too soon when I use it on consecutive days.
Mel from Washington, DC
I have been using this exfoliator for years! I have very stubborn combo skin and feels amazing after use Absolutely love!!
Oreo girl from Oregon
I been use this product like many years and still love it!
The BEST Cleanser
Alli from Miami
This is a MUST buy! I have ultra sensitive, dry skin that peels over anything. I've only been able to use Drunk Elephant products, but I love philosophy so I decided to give this a try. The exfoliating crystals are so tiny they exfoliate perfectly without being rough on my skin. Also removes all my makeup and excess oil without drying out my skin. I hate fragrance but the light citrus note in this is DIVINE!
Just buy and try
Mag from Long Beach, CA
I don't use any make up and I don't use any facial products therefore I rarely ever break out with pimples. I decided to give this a try after getting a couple pimples every time I wore a face mask. Since I've used this product morning and night everyday I haven't broken out With any pimples. So don't think upon this product I looked over it for days and I'm glad I bought it and gave it a try.
Sonya from Memphis, TN
I've been using it for 2 years or so. I used to swear by Dermalogica for their exfoliates, but they're so dang expensive. This stuff will go on sale or give you extra points when you buy it. It's also not quite as gritty, but gets the job done. I have to use it a little more often just because my face is super dry and it peels, but it's very effective!
Ashley A from Miami, FL
I really like this exfoliator. It makes my skin feel fresh, there isn't much need to put cream after for my skin, it's a combination. I use it every other day so it doesn't dry out my skin. The smell is normal and the feeling is great!
v.a from san marcos, tx
I've been using this for 2 weeks straight and I LOVE it ! ..I work for fast food so when I come home my face is super yucky and oily and after I wash my face with this it makes it super soft and clean.. I definitely feel refreshed .. will definitely purchase another once I'm done with this one !
Amber from Peoria,IL
At first I thought I was returning this. It just didn't feel like it did anything. I have combo skin and found that if I leave this on a few mins it makes all the difference. It worked for me after letting it sit. Skin is much softer after.
Made my skin so smooth
Kelly from Alaska
The results last for weeks
Love this product
Heidi from Phoenix Arizona
I use this just about everyday and will continue to purchase this product.
Jules from KY
This is my favorite face wash. I've been using it for over a year and I have no desire to switch things up!! Great product!
Makes my skin so soft and smooth!
DMT from Kissimmee, FL
this has very fine granules and makes my skin soft and smooth.
My favorite exfoliating face wash of all time
SkinLovesSun from Chicago
I use this face wash 2-3x a week for a deep clean. It's gentle enough for exfoliation but I wouldn't use it daily. The only downside is it is a bit drying, but since it's the first step in my routine it's not that big of a deal. Been using over 5 years.
Great Face Wash!!
Brokenbutterfly1222 from Lebanon, Tn
I already figured this was going to be a fairly decent face wash just because of the brand, but WOW!!! I love this face wash! It is the perfect amount of cleanser/exfoliater. It is super gentle, yet works so well
Chelsea from Houston, Tx
I absolutely loved this face wash because it exfoliates my skin but is not too rough, like the St. Ives exfoliating face wash. Philosophy is always a safe brand to go with, you will never be disappointed.
I would buy this product again
Sana from Tampa Florida
Best for night use it cleans thoroughly.
