    Comments about Philosophy The Microdelivery Triple-Acid Brightening Peel:

    I absolutely love this product. I use it every Sunday evening after washing my face and avoiding close to the eyes. Pre-soaked pad and super easy to use on face/neck. After a few Sundays, you will see the difference in the texture, lines, etc. I finish what's left on the pad on the top of my hands and elbows

        Comments about Philosophy The Microdelivery Triple-Acid Brightening Peel:

        After enjoying much success with Philosophy's Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash, I was eager to try these pads. Unfortunately, lightning didn't strike twice.
        The pads were soaking wet, and were just gross to apply as they dampened my face considerably. I figured my face would magically dry, like when applying a toner. This was not the case, and I was left with a sticky film all over my face. After 20 minutes or so, I could not deal with the film because firstly it was a less than pleasant feeling and secondly I was afraid of breaking out. So, I washed it off and figured I'd give the product another go the next day.
        Well, all hopes were dashed when I woke up and found several red bumps on my forehead. I wanted this to improve my skin, not make it worse! I read a review by Paula Begoun and she noted that the oils in this product could irritate one's skin. Oils? Irritate? No thank you.
        I thought that I'd be a Philosophy convert after using the exfoliating wash, but I guess Philosophy is like every other brand I've tried: it's hit or miss.

          Works really well, my skin looks flowy and bright after first use. Does have strong smell but it doesn't linger in your face. Feels slightly sticky after but the effect is really nice.

          Comments about Philosophy The Microdelivery Triple-Acid Brightening Peel:

          I've used this product twice and so far I'm loving it! I think after the full 12 weeks, my skin will definitely be brighter and smoother. I will say the scent is antiseptic and not pleasing to me, but not a deal breaker.

          Definitely be careful if you get facial waxing done or tan - this makes skin so much more sensitive to trauma and sun exposure.

          Comments about Philosophy The Microdelivery Triple-Acid Brightening Peel:

          I ordered this product because I suddenly remembered what success I had when using it several years ago. It works gently to rid the user of discolorations/dark spots. I find I don't need to use this product every night. A few nights a week usually is enough for me to have noticeable improvement. I use this product at bed time to help avoid sun exposure. My skin is a bit sensitive when using this product. The smell is not pleasant, but it goes away after the product dries. If it didn't work so well, I don't think I could tolerate the scent or price. I have adult acne-prone dark skin that is given to hyperpigmentation. I experience noborritation when using this product. I would repurchase and recommend.

                    Comments about Philosophy The Microdelivery Triple-Acid Brightening Peel:

                    For years I was riddled with acne scars, and nothing would lighten them even the prescription variety medication from my position and the expensive formulas from the dermatologist. I have tried everything from Retin-A to chemical peels. Nothing works like these pads! They get rid of acne scars and just a few uses. If you have red marks of any kind they will lighten it quickly. If I have a bad acne scar I will use this two or three times a week, rubbing the scar most and then smoothing around the whole face. It is important to note that there is no visible peeling with this product. It is more of an exfoliation overtime tool than an actual peel. No one will even know you've used it and your makeup will still look the great the next day, but your complexion willlook somehow more translucent and brighter. Don't wait on the fence for this product because it is worth every penny. Philosophy please never stop making this product because I seriously cannot live without it! It has changed my life.... I don't hide acne scars anymore with concealer. I wipe
                    them away with this!
