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.

    Been using this for years and can't imagine finding anything better. Your skin feels like a newborn baby's after using it!! So soft and smooth. Amazing, and worth the money. A kit usually lasts me about 6 months (once per week use)

          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.

            from NYC

            Comments about Philosophy The Microdelivery Resurfacing Peel:

            Honestly, I gave this a few weeks and was really underwhelmed. The warming sensation was pleasant, otherwise I didn't get any exfoliation out of this that I couldn't have gotten from any other scrub. As far as softening, brightening, clarifying or smoothing wrinkles... also nothing. I'm sure it yielded results for some. But for me it was yet another grossly overpriced product that ended up being returned.

                A:

                Yes, you may use this product on the neck and decollete area. This product is a two-step, in-home peel that resurfaces and rejuvenates sun-damaged, hyperpigmented and aging skin. what makes this next generation microdelivery peel so revolutionary is that unlike peels of the past that only exfoliated, this peel delivers peptides and vitamin c to the skin as it is being rapidly exfoliated. it is resurfacing and replenishing the skin at the same time, which is a new approach to skin rejuvenation, and best of all, it involves absolutely no downtime.

              The instructions for use of the microdelivery peel indicates that after the mixture of the two peel products I should feel a warmth on my skin and that it should begin to foam. The product didn't do that when I used it. I'm wondering if I did it correctly.

                A:

                the reaction from the activator gel in the microdelivery peel will be different depnding on cusrrent skin condition and dead skin cells. therefore, you may feel less of a heating sensation when layering the activator gel over the vitamin c crystals. the benefits will be the same. when using the product, make sure you are using equal parts of the vitamin c crystals and the activating gel for maximum results.
