Rated 5 out of 5 by Jewels4you Fantastic product!!
I've been using Philosophy's 2-step Microdelivery Peel for a number of years now...it's a game changer if you want better looking AND smoother skin. My face and neckline adore this product--just one application and you will notice a huge difference in how your skin looks and feels. Facial products absorb better and your foundation will glide on effortlessly...honest!
In my opinion, the best method of applying the product is PRIOR to taking a shower. Pull back hair away from face (use headband, pony tail or hair clip). Make sure all makeup has been removed prior to application. Using DRY fingertips apply a small amount of vitamin C peptide crystals to face, neck AND your lips. Avoid the delicate eye area. Gently rub for about a minute or so. DO NOT use water or dip your fingers into the jar if they are wet...it will mess up the product. Apply step-2, the lactic/salicylic acid activating gel (apply to face, neck, and lips). Gently rub and you should start to feel a slight warming sensation and a slight foaming of the gel. Wait 1 or 2 minutes for the product to do its magic. Step into the shower, close your eyes and completely rinse off product. Showering is THE best way of effortlessly removing all of the product.
NOTE: DO NOT apply this product while showering as any water whatsoever getting into the jar will ruin the product...thinning it out and turning into a soupy mess. I know because I did this with only a few precious applications remaining in the jar and I was a bit bummed.
Carry on as usual with any makeup application. Like I mentioned, you're going to LOVE this product. I typically use it once a week and sometimes twice a week. Nothing on the planet works better than this product and I ALWAYS buy the larger supersize from QVC...more bang for your hard-earned buck. I have mature skin and this stuff does wonders.

I've been using the Microdelivery Peel for a few years on my 63-year old face. It is everything that the other reviewers said and more. It is gentle on my normal skin and boy, is my skin smooth after use.

I have a closet full of beauty products and this combo is a new favorite. I used it for the first time and my skin feels better than it would after spending $100 on a professional facial. I have rosacea and this did not exacerbate it at all. It just leaves your skin completely smooth, fresh and with a cooled, tightened feeling. I'm going to go on auto delivery if it's available, it's that good!
Rated 5 out of 5 by hollywood This is BEST Peel Ever
Really this is the best peel ever. It makes your skin extremely smooth and soft after only one use. It's not harsh and it’s very good for sensitive skin. I left it on for about 10-minutes (b/c I do NOT have sensitive skin) and I did a little house work, then rinsed it off and my face was smooth like "silk" really I am not exaggerating just like "silk". It's been 7-days and my face is still very very smooth. The texture of my skin changed w/ only one application. I can’t believe it. I thought I could only love the other Philosophy Enzyme Peel (I also leave the “enzyme peel” on for 10-mins) b/c it gives a deep down cleaning, but this “C peel” just changed the texture of your skin w/ one use. Both peels are fabulous and very different and I cannot say which is better b/c they both do different things. The other “enzyme peel” gets deep into the pores and clean, but this “C peel” cleans the surface and then changes your skin's texture to feeling like a 6-month old baby’s skin (I am NOT exaggerating the actual texture of the skin changes). Now, for me all this happened when I left the peels on for 10-mins (again I do NOT have sensitive skin). Neither peel was harsh or burned. I felt comfortable using both peels. I plan on alternating between the two - I will use one peel and then 7-days later I will use the other. Actually, I bought both peels at the same time, but I tried the other “Enzyme Peel” first and after using that one I thought I have found “my peel” and I did not need this “C peel” (which I have on auto delivery). Before I would cancel the auto-delivery, I decided to just try this C peel, and "wow" I am definitely going to keep my auto delivery this “C peel” is great too. I am trying to bring my makeup free optional skin back. I was having imbalance hormones and began to have hormonal adult acne and blemishes on my face. Philosophy was my hope of getting great skin back. So far, it's working beautifully. I am almost there. Thank you Philosophy. P.S. I almost forgot here is a little reminder the secret to the “enzyme peel” is to constantly rub the peel on your skin to re-active the peel especially on your blemishes – (if it dry out a bit during your 10-mins, just add a few drops of water onto your face to re-active it and rub it some more on your blemishes. With this “c peel” you do not need to rub it as much, it works once you mix it evenly on you face just let it sit about 10-mins. If you have to pick just one, try this “C peel” only b/c it has the most dramatic change it changes the texture of your skin as well as gets your face clean . Hope this helps. I’ve had many professional peels (which are $130 per peel) and this peel is actually better b/c my skin never gets red, dry, or flaky. Believe me, you will thank me later.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Grammy44 Helpful and makes my skin softer and smoother
I am 53 yrs. old, and I need to have something that helps my skin be more clean to me. I am a type II diabetic and taking care of myself including my skin is so necessary. This did not make my skin dry or flaky. It does get warmer using together, as directed, just warm. I did have a little trouble getting all the granules off at first, but then figured a way to do so. I have noticed my face looks brighter and so smooth again. I think I have found my go-to product! Thanks!
Rated 5 out of 5 by PJ12 This works
I really liked this. I react to so many products and was so glad that I didn't react to this.
It really does leave your face feeling so nice and clean. No perfumed fragrance either which is a plus for me.
Rated 1 out of 5 by tellyawhat Huge Disappointment
The product is a bit scary and disappointing all in one. Step 1 feels like massaging pulverized glass into your skin. Step 2 did not turn white to indicate activation. Unfortunately, I didn't use it right away as I intended to finish out another product. So I couldn't return this very expensive Philosophy product. Don't trust Philosophy brand now.
