Keep skin glowing after your peel by applying philosophy’s ultra-nourishing miracle worker moisturizer.

Birchbox Breakdown

The idea of a facial peel can be scary (anyone remember Samantha’s treatment-gone-awry in Sex and the City?), but in actuality, they can be really beneficial for your skin. philosophy’s two-step microdelivery peel delivers spa-grade exfoliation that can be used at home to freshen skin and combat the signs of aging. Enzymes resurface and restore a dull complexion while vitamin-rich crystals nourish and replenish.

How it Works

Vitamin C and peptide crystals act as a gentle exfoliator while simultaneously nourishing skin from within. Lactic and salicylic acids rapidly dissolve dead skin cells and improve skin’s texture. The result: skin that’s smoother, brighter, and more youthful-looking.

How to Use

After washing face, apply a teaspoon-sized amount of vitamin c/peptide resurfacing crystals to clean dry skin. Gently massage crystals in a circular motion for up to 60 seconds, avoiding eyes. Massage a generous teaspoon-sized amount of activating gel on top of crystals (a foam will appear and a warming sensation will occur). Leave foam on for two to three minutes. Less sensitive skin types can massage foam for extra exfoliating benefits. Rinse thoroughly and moisturize as usual.

Bicarbonate vitamin C crystals: peg-6, sodium bicarbonate, oleth-20, glyceryl stearate se, silica, magnesium ascorbyl phosphate, tocopheryl acetate, retinyl palmitate, citrus aurantium dulcis (orange) oil, beta carotene, isopropylparaben, isobutylparaben, butylparaben, sodium hydroxymethylglycinate.

Rapid activation gel: water (aqua), lactic acid, hydroxyethylcellulose, linoleamidopropyl pg-dimonium chloride phosphate, polyquaternium 10, propylene glycol, diazolidinyl urea, methylparaben, propylparaben.

best product ever
Purchased

if you want to really exfoliate, this product is amazing! Your face has never felt this smooth, I promise. It can feel a little abrasive, but its worth it.

Leaves skin soft

I bought this product in a desperate attempt to get rid of acne scarring, and unfortunately, it has not helped much with that. It does, however, make my skin extremely soft for about a week. It feels rough to use, but my sensitive skin does not burn after using.

Simply Outstanding!

I received this as a gift some time back and I have to say it was amazing. I have sensitive skin and some peels just don't work well for sensitive skin, but this one never caused me any problems. Always left my skin feeling smooth and looking great.

awesome exfoliating product ever

This makes my youthful skin radiant. I am nearly 28, and I look so young. I use this with purity and the hope in a jar moisturizer. Perfect combo!

Love the product, hate the price

I love the scrub, and I've been making my sample size try to last as long as possible because it's prohibitively expensive.

Wonderful

I love this product. My skin feels so soft and smooth afterward. Plus, it didn't irritate or break out my skin. Will definitely purchase more.
