{Beauty Mark} Philosophy The Microdelivery Peel

28 March 2012

Spring cleaning isn't just for the clutter in your closet, kitchen or attic.

It's also for you! Winter brings dry, chapped skin and spring is all about the new. I myself am very sensitive to scrubs with beads or crystals and will break out at the mere sight of them. I use a face loofah in the shower, but I still feel like I'm shedding skin throughout the day.

I caught myself wandering around Ulta around this time last year, about 2 months before my wedding, and ran across these pads. I normally wouldn't spend the moolah on something like a face peel, but my mom had been getting lactic acid peels and loved them (was that supposed to be secret?) and I saw that these used lactic acid as well. I figured they were less expensive than going to a dermatologist, I was a bride possessed, and was sucking up any product that could possibly make me a more radiant, sane bride. 

These puppies didn't make me any more sane, but good grief did I glow! I would rub one of these on my face fresh out of the shower, as well as my neck, chest, shoulders and tops of hands. After about 3 or 4 uses, I started noticing a subtle glow and an evenness to my skin that I hadn't noticed before. I only used them twice a week or so, because any more and they would just straight peel my face off.

I would advise applying these at night to give them time to soak in, as they can leave the face slightly sticky for a few minutes after application. Because of the season, make sure to apply a face lotion with SPF to protect that new baby skin!

After seeing the improvements, I told my mom, and not only did she start using it, her boyfriend did as well. My husband even uses them from time to time! I have even converted a couple of friends to start using them as well! 

They may run a little pricey (ok, a lot) but I just now finished the jar a year after buying them, as they need to be used less often once you bring out that glowing new skin!

  1. great tip! I will be on the look out!


  2. This sounds great! I love hearing about new skin products that actually work like they're supposed to! Thanks for sharing! xoxo, morgan

    1. There are definitely a lot out there and it can be a paint to wade through all the lies to find a goodie! This one is most definitely a win.

  3. I am so ordering these now. I love philosophy :)

    p.s. You can use the code CHICWEEK on sephora.com from march 29 - april 5th to get 15%.

    1. I haven't really tried any of their other things, but in my bridal desperation, I thought I'd give them a try and ended up loving it. Oh lord, don't tempt me with coupons. Those things are dangerous.

    2. Just purchased the peel combo today in the store so I could use the discount. They didn't have the pads :(

  4. Well it sounds great. I will have to check it out and if it lasts as long as you say so then its totally worth the price.

    1. It really is worth it! Just remember to give it time, and only do 2-3 times a week. You'll start to see the spots fade and the tone even out!

  5. Hey there! Thanks for following me. I appreciate it :) I will follow back. Thanks

    xo Samantha
