I am in love with this cleanser. I have fair, sensitive skin that can look pinkish. I've used this cleanser every evening for the past week. My skin is super soft, smoother, more evenly colored, pores look smaller. All this is immediately noticeable after the first use. It has not been the least bit irritating. My husband even commented on my skin tone. Another awesome side effect is that my moisturizer and foundation glide on like a dream after using this. I hesitated to buy because of the price - Well Worth Every Cent.

Great

I have dry skin and after cleaning my face my face wasn't overly dried out. It made my skin very soft after I put the moisturizer on too!

A fast buff to cleanse the pallet!

Your face is your pallet and when it is rough and dull due to dead skin, your products and makeup can't do the jobs they were designed to do. Enter the philosophy microdelivery wash. I love this product. It is definitely able to exfoliate and cleanse the skin, without being so rough that you feel attacked by sandpaper. I use this in the shower every time I shampoo (2-3 times a wee) and it is the perfect product for the job.

The best!!!

I recently ran out of my very expensive face wash that I was buying from a Spa and tried this sample that I received from Birchbox. It felt so good to exfoliate my face and my skin felt amazing the next day. I think this will replace my other skincare products.

Works Great With My Clarisonic

This product gives me just the right amount of exfoliation and is gentle enough to use everyday. I pair it with my clarisonic brush. Does not cause redness or dryness, just smooth, toned skin.

So happy

Very happy to find this on Birchbox. I have been using Philosophy's Microdelivery Exfolating Wash for close to a year now and love how soft it makes my skin and never irritates it. I am 54 and still have problems with acne and oily skin but since using this my skin is softer, brighter, and less breakouts. Now I can buy it here and get Birchbox points! It doesn't get better than that.
