the great one:  vitamin c microdelivery peel for all skin types

  • step 1  apply one teaspoon amount of the vitamin c crystals to clean, dry skin.  once crystals are applied,t hey should appear almost like a mask.  gently massage in a circular motion over entire face, avoiding the eye area, for up to 60 seconds.  do not scrub, only massage.  tip:  use less pressure for sensitive skin
  • step 2  place a generous teaspoon amount of activator in the palm of your hand.  massage gel onto fingertips and apply on top of vitamin c crystals.  as activator is applied, an overall warming sensation will occur and a white foam will appear indicating your vitamin c is now active.  leave foam on for 2-3 minutes to infuse vitamin c into the skin.  rinse thoroughly.  tip:  you can massage foam for extra exfoliating benefits or allow it to sit if your skin is more sensitive.  you can use a washcloth to remove the peel to avoid getting peel into hair.

kit usage:  can be used 1 to 2 x per week.  use a.m. or p.m. prior to applying skincare.

    My skin is SO dry that in the winter, I use vaseline as a daily facial moisturizer. It is also so sensitive that it looks like I have constant sunburn. This product did not irritate my skin at all! I was really shocked! I kept waiting for the usual stinging and burning that always happens, even with products for "sensitive skin", and it never did! I'm not kidding! Not one bit. HOORAY!! There was very little of a warming sensation and not a whole lot of foam, but I still think this product gets an A in my book! I used a sample that I got from a friend, since I hate wasting big bucks on products that I just can't use again, and I came online and bought the full size within an hour of using it!
    Waiting for it to get here is going to be torture!
    The only reason I gave this only 4 stars instead of 5 is because it didn't fully exfoliate my super duper dry areas (which honestly, only a sandblaster could do!), but for my average dry areas, I saw drastic improvement after just the first use!
    LOVE IT!!!

    This sounded great, so i plunked down [$]. It may work great for some, and its a terrific concept, but it made me break out each time i tried it. Back to my divine clarisonic. It works great on my hands, but never again on my face.

      I love this product! I use it once a week and it makes my face feel so smooth and soft. I can't believe it! It does tingle and warms once you apply it but I don't get any irritation. I leave it on for a few minutes as I gently move the cleanser around with my fingers in small circles.

        Comments about philosophy the microdelivery peel, 1 kit:

        After the first use, I didn't notice too much difference except for smoother, softer skin. With continued use I have become a true believer, my tone and texture are more even and smoother. My skin is glowing, healthy, even my foundation looks better. I highly recommend this product to anyone who needs to jumpstart their skin or just needs that little pick me up. It's what I've been missing. Now I use it once a week, I've never had a skincare experience like this one.

          Comments about philosophy the microdelivery peel, 1 kit:

          I originally bought this product to use weekly, in between my monthly facials at the spa. But since I've found it better for my skin than an actual facial, I will be foregoing my monthly facials completely.

          My skin is a mix of dry, itchy patches and little white heads. Other products would take care of the acne, but would aggravate my rashes; while facials would leave my skin blotchy, red and swollen with more break outs because of the extractions.

          Since I started using this, my skin is less congested and the dry, itchy patches are almost nonexistent. This is honestly the best my skin has been in months! I will be buying again and actually have converted to the philosophy line.

            This product is one of my very favorites. It smells like lemon cake and leaves my skin so soft and smooth. It shrinks pores and sloughs off dry skin to reveal, healthy, glowing skin. Highly recommended. I use twice a week.

                My skin has never been this soft, smooth, and radiant!!! The scrub and the serum both smell great...like lemon cake in my opinion! My skin feels supple, soft, smooth. I have combination (oily in t-zone, dry on cheeks) skin that is very acne prone. This helps minimize pores and reduces the redness of post acne marks. I use about twice a week. Worth the hefty price tag.

                    I saw a difference in my skin texture in just one use. You can spend a fortune on facials but purchasing this product for home use can help you save on salon facials. I have used this product once to two times per week and I have had numerous compliments on my skin. Mostly people ask what kind of foundation am I wearing (I have no foundation on.) I am sold on this product--excellent value for your hard earned dollar.
