The Philosophy Microdelivery Purifying Peel I am reviewing today is the one minute, deep exfoliating enzyme peel, not to be confused with the two step Microdelivery purifying peel which I will be reviewing separately in a future post!
This enzyme peel from Philosophy, is designed to be a quick and easy to use exfoliating treatment for your skin that works to give you smooth, more youthful and healthy looking skin.
Philosophy Microdelivery Deep Exfoliating Enzyme Peel Review
It improves both skin texture and skin tone and cleanses pores of the impurities that cause blackheads resulting in a reduced pore size appearance.
Because of the deep exfoliating effect, cellular turnover is increased resulting in an improvement in the firmness and appearance of your complexion and a reduction in lines and wrinkles.
This brilliant peel treatment combines both lactic acid and salicylic acid with a complex of fruit acids and natural enzymes to produce an effective, yet gentle exfoliating product that is as natural as possible. You will not find any Parablens, Sulfates, Phthalates, GMOs, Triclosan or any synthetic fragrance in the formulation. You will find lots of antioxidants to protect your skin from free radical damage.
This product is suitable for all skin types, although if your skin is extremely sensitive or you have previously had problems with products containing salicylic acid, you should use with caution.
This is a really easy to use product, simply follow your normal cleansing routine and dry your skin. Apply the product to dry skin, leave in place for one minute (or up to three minutes depending on the sensitivity of your skin), before rinsing well with tepid or cool water, patting your face dry and moisturizing as normal.
You must discontinue the use of this product if any irritation occurs during use or develops after use. Be sure to keep the product stored in a cool dry place, well out of the reach of children. Be aware that the alpha hydroxy acid (aha) contained in this product may increase your risk of sun damage or burning so you must take care to apply a good quality sunscreen when going out in the sun whilst you are using this product and for at least a week after you discontinue use.
This product is getting great reviews online because of the way it improves the texture of the skin, reducing the appearance of pores and leaving skin feeling really clean.
Most people are not reporting that they use this product every single day. Every other day or even twice a week, seems quite common for the use of this gentle, non-greasy product.
Users report baby-soft skin and a more even skin tone. Some users have also reported an improvement in the appearance of acne scarring. Many users report that it does sting a little but that it does not cause redness or irritation and, that although it may seem quite expensive, the fact that you only need a very small amount makes it work out really economical in the long run.
Overall Verdict on the Philosophy Microdelivery Peel
This is a great product full of natural antioxidants to brighten the skin and fruit acids to effectively exfoliate; a great way to get (and keep) baby soft skin, deep cleanse your pores of impurities and reduce the appearance of enlarged pores.
Philosophy Microdelivery Peel is a good choice whatever your skin type and works out quite economical because of the small amount required to achieve results.
