I have an irrational fear of all things chemical. The mention of peel conjures up images of sensitized skin and long downtimes. So, when I received a sample of Philosophy’s Microdelivery Peel in the December 2012 edition of Vanitytrove (reviewed here), I had plenty of reservations and stashed it away. However, for some reason the beauty gods gave me sufficient curiosity and courage to try it out recently… and i was simply amazed by the results!
Let me first state that my skin is in fairly good condition (which was partly why I never felt the need for a peel). Regardless, I have the common problems of uneven skin tone and some bumpiness that reminds me i’m no longer a baby. Even with regular exfoliation, masks, and facials, I have not been able to eradicate these issues. So I was genuinely astounded when Philosophy’s Microdelivery Peel left my skin visibly clearer (pimple scars greatly diminished!), and a million times smoother and softer to the touch!! Seriously, I couldn’t stop touching my face afterwards. There was no stinging (which I had expected from peels), instead, the scent was a delightful authentic citrus (rather than the harsh chemical scent i had anticipated). All this in 3 short minutes, a breeze to incorporate into the busiest lifestyle!
After trying out the sample, I immediately went out to Sephora and bought a set for myself! I have not been so excited about any beauty product in a long time, so my advice to all the ladies out there, try this wonderful product out asap!!
