philosophy super-size instant home facial 3-piece set
I'm a regular user of purity and microdelivery wash and those products arrived as expected and worked (for me) as they normally do. I decided to get this particular configuration, however, because of the peel, which I had never tried. First, it was very messy. I had a hard time opening the capsule and getting the stuff mixed. By the time the capsule was torn open and could be poured into the mixing container, I had already lost quite a bit of it on my bathroom counter. Once it was mixed and formed a gel-like consistency, I smeared it on my face as directed. This process was awkward and took a long time with the tiny spatula that came with the kit. I finally resorted to using my fingers. All that would have been worth it, if the product did ANYTHING for my skin, which it didn't. I won't buy this configuration again nor will I ever buy the peel on its own.
Wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful
This will last me a year or more and that's with washing two or three times a day. I am a skin care fanatic. This is so worth it. Think of all the cheap washing products you buy in the year it probably equals more than what this cost. If you spend $16 a month on a cheap cleanser or $8 every two weeks on something that really does not work you are spending $192 in a year, and we all know the $16 is on the low side. you can spend a lot more on the drug store stuff. $106 for this jumbo kit and includes a peel can t beat this! AND IT"S an awesome product!
Wooow peel is awesome cleans face nice and i have super sensitive skin and this is perfect and not uncomfortable really enjoyable:))))
products continue to be changed
Once again the new owners of philosophy cheapen the product from a few years ago. It started with amazing grace and now has moved to the micro delivery wash. I have used these products for more than 13 years and spent a fortune but always felt the product was worth the money. Not any more. The micro delivery wash has beads for approximately the first 10 washes, then they magically disappear. It doesn't even feel like my face is clean after I use it, forget the micordelivery effect. I get so upset that the employees of philosophy and QVC can continue to stand in front of the cameras and brag about how great these products are. One more item off of my auto delivery plan. Maybe when both companies start loosing money something will happen to get the products back to what they used to be.
Oxygen fizzled, poor instructions, hard to open
Let me start by saying I have no problem with the facial washes. But, the peel was a real dud. First, there were virtually no instructions or directions and the ones on the teeny bottle were too small to read! Then the container into which you are to put this capsule was impossible to open. I broke two nails and finally used a metal nail file to pry it open. I had not broken the capsule in half as I could not read the directions so I struggled to open the container, contents spilled everywhere! Tried again, still the fizz did not occur. I gave up. What is the "enzyme gel"...never did figure that out. Bottom line, I will keep the two large bottles of facial cleanser and toss the rest. I would return it but the weather is still bad and I am out of the facial cleanser. Maybe it's me but a waste of time and money re the "peel".
Purity Is The Best
Purity Is the only thing that works for me, I tried other products but just recently returned to philosophy. I will never try another skin care line
Great package, great price!
I use the Purity and the facial scrub daily. The oxygen peel is the ONLY product I have found that decreases the appearance of my pore size and clears up my blackheads. The oxygen peel can initially cause breakouts, but that is because it is drawing all the old dirt and oil that is trapped in your pores out. If you continue to use the washes on a daily basis and the oxygen peel at least weekly, you will definitely see a difference in your skin! I recommend Philosophy to everyone! I love and believe in their products that much!
I will begin by saying that I ADORE Purity. That being said, I am not at all impressed by the other products included in this kit. I have not noticed any difference in my skin. I truly was a Philosophy Girl and addicted to their product. I'm shocked at other reviews. I believe they have made major changes to their product lines and the quality is nowhere near what it used to be. I have used their facials before and noticed a difference immediately. This time, it's been over a month and NOTHING. Very disappointed, but since I love the huge Purity, I'm not sending it back. I probably won't use the rest of the facial products because I don't think there are any ingredients worth using on my skin.
I gave it a "fair" rating only because it included the huge Purity (I've used this for years and still love it. Don't think they've changed this formula.)
Boy, did my skin miss this!
i have been a Philosophy girl for some time now, but didn't realize how much my skin relied on it until i ran out. i waited for them to come back and do a show because that is when you get the event packages and pricing, but it seemed like a lifetime. my skin was dull and it felt like it was tearing when i used other products to remove make-up. but once received, my skin is shiny and healthy and i love the peel. it is a nice addition that i hadn't used before. thank you QVC for bringing Philosophy to me!
We love this set!
Everyone in my household uses these products. My family consists of a female in her 30s, two females in their teens, and my mother who is in her 60s. The purity cleanser is gentle and does not dry out your skin (very important as one of my teens has acne problems & exczema so her skin is sensitive). The micro delivery wash is so gentle and gets the job done. Our skin feels smoother and more vibrant. And the oxygen peels feel great and I can get three of us to do a peel with one capsule! I highly recommend this set.
I broke out in rash all over my face :(
I do not want to write this review however, just in case someone else has an reaction they should be aware that this product may cause allergic reaction. I want to start off by saying I wanted to love this product so much - I really do. I actually used it once and broke out waited a week and did it again and my face broke out worse. The type of break out is like a red rash all over my cheeks and chin area, it is causing little flakes (that even cover up is not helping hide it) it also has made my lips puff out like Angelina Jolie's. It itches like crazy!! I normally do not have reactions to anything products/food what have you, but this is really bad, in fact if it doesn't clear up in the next few days I may have to see a doctor.
I think the chemicals that caused the reaction are Disodium cocoamphodiacetate, Methylchloroisothiazolinone. To my dismay the product is going back.
Ever since I passed 30 and became a mother my skin has been really rough and my pores stay clogged no matter what I used. After six years of skin woes, that doesn't do much for your self-image! I ordered this set, have been using it for just over a week and WOW! I am so happy. My skin is already much smoother and I can actually tell it is more clear each day. My friends and family can see the difference, too! I don't want to ever be without this stuff.
