I ordered this set of Philosophy Microdelivery Peel for a while now and I love it. It is like the home version (milder and less traumatic, that is) of microdermabrasion. If you have done microdermabrasion, it sometimes leaves you with raw sunburnt after effect, but this doesn’t.
I am not saying that the microdelivery peel is comparative to the actual microdermabrasion, but it is a good alternative for home use.
philosophy pioneered the first medical microdermabrasion machine that rapidly exfoliated the skin as it delivered vitamin c deep into the skin. the treatment is known as the microdelivery peel and is popular amongst plastic surgeons and their patients. philosophy is proud to introduce a less expensive, less invasive in-home version of the microdelivery peel.
this kit doesn’t just give your skin a peel, it delivers a complete skin makeover. what makes this next generation microdelivery peel so revolutionary is that unlike peels of the past that only exfoliated, this peel delivers vitamin c into the skin as it’s 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.
- vitamin c/peptide resurfacing crystals, 2oz
- lactic/salicylic acid activating gel, 2oz
you need this product if:
- you want to give your skin a complete makeover.
- you want to help de-age your skin.
- you crave a radiant glow.
- you are an exfoliator aficionado.
- pregnant women should consult their physician before using this product as it contains salicylic acid.
directions for use for Philosophy The Microdelivery Peel
apply vitamin c/peptide resurfacing crystals to a clean dry face.
gently massage using circular motions to buff away dead dry skin cells for 1-3 minutes
apply a thin layer of activating gel over crystals.
after applying activating gel, a warming sensation and foam will appear. leave on for one minute and then rinse.
I use this once a week, sometimes once every two weeks, because of the crazy work schedule, and I really might need to cut back on skin care products purchase. I also have a jar of Skinfood black sugar scrub, so sometimes I alternate with the Philosophy Microdelivey Peel.
I love that it really helps with diminishing the marks left by breakouts. It also brightens and evens the skin tone.
Expect no miracle to make your imperfect skin perfect though, it is a maintenance product, not really a treatment or cure. Don’t let the word ‘peel’ scares you, you don’t really peel or flake. At least I don’t.
