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 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!

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 !

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

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

Best for night use it cleans thoroughly.
NCMom from NC
I use this every morning, it has really helped with my "mask acne" from having to wear a mask all day at work. Has even helped exfoliate away areas with pesky blackheads.
Favorite exfoliator ever!
KK from Dallas, TX
This is my second time purchasing this product and I don't think I will ever go back to another exfoliator. The best part is how clean and soft this makes my skin! Little pricey, but my first bottle (8oz.) lasted me over 7 months!
It's the only one I'll EVER use < 3
Carlee from Carrollton TX
I feel and see a big difference in my skin when I use this. My skin looks and feels so clean and smooth. If I don't use it I can literally feel the texture and it's not smooth-looks dull. So I use it every day for great results.
Hands down the best exfoliating facial scrub!

Still like to use
C in PA from East Coast
I still like using it even though I think the formula has changed. I like it more abrasive.
Fantastic light exfoliating
Angelika from Washington State
I needed an exfoliating cleanser so I was excited to try Philosophy's. Historically I have preferred to have an exfoliating cleanser in my skincare routine because I need to exfoliate every other day or so, at least, to keep my skin from looking dull or "blah". I previously was using Rodan & Fields' Redefine Cleanser for AM+PM and actually loved it. But it was so expensive, so I've been on the hunt for other subs.
Microdelivery is very fine grit, in fact it seems finer than R&F's. I only use [less than] a dime size amount on my fingertips for my entire face and neck. Because I prefer to ensure my neck gets some exfoliating, I've kept my Microdelivery in the shower so I can do a nice face clean while I shampoo! It all rinses off with no fuss versus washing my face at the sink - Works great for me.
I am not quite to the level of using this daily, but I appreciate this product's keeping my dead skin at bay! I use it about once every-other-day. I would probably buy this again!
SUCH AN AMAZING PRODUCT
