Find the Philosophy peel that's best for you



Step 1: Apply a teaspoon amount to clean, dry skin. Once applied, crystals should appear almost like a mask. Gently massage in a circular motion over entire face for up to 60 seconds, avoiding eye area. Do not scrub. (Use less pressure for sensitive skin)

Step 2: Place a generous teaspoon amount in the palm of your hand. Massage gel onto fingertips, and apply on top of crystals. As activator is applied, a warming sensation will occur. White foam will appear, indicating activation. Leave foam on 2-3 minutes to infuse vitamin c and peptides to the skin. (You can massage foam for extra exfoliating benefits or let it sit for sensitive skin) Rinse thoroughly. (You can use a washcloth for removal, to avoid getting the peel in your hair.)

            Using weekly as suggested. Leaves my skin soft for days after, not just immediately after use. I had to use a little more of the gel than I thought to activate the crystals. Smell so great. I look forward to using it each week.

                  Would be better without fragrance

                  By makeuplover

                  from USA

                  Comments about Philosophy The Microdelivery Resurfacing Peel:

                  I don't understand the need for fragrance in a peel. The skin is stripped down, so fragrance irritates that. You would never find fragrance in a professional or high end peel. This is a great exfoliant, but would be a great product overall without the cheap perfume.

                      The Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash is gentle enough to use on Acne prone skin except for Cystic acne. If you are interested in a Peel, we would not recommend using The Microdelivery Resurfacing Peel on any acne prone skin types. We would recommend the Microdelivery Detoxifying Peel, as it helps to draws out impurities.
