I love peels and the whole idea of revealing newer, fresher skin and I have been really enjoying the latest launch from Philosophy. It is a 2 step leave on treatment that works evernight to get rid of dead skin and then restore the underlying skin cells. Here are the details on the Philosophy Microdelivery Overnight Anti Aging Peel.
The 2 step system uses gold-standard alpha/beta hydroxy acids and natural Echinacea to work the visible signs of skin aging, wrinkles, loss of firmness and enlarged pores. I was UP FOR IT!
Philosophy Microdelivery Overnight Anti Aging Peel Features
- Micro-exfoliation of a peel
- Restorative benefits of an overnight sleep mask
- Minimal risk of irritation
- Gentle yet effective
Philosophy Microdelivery Overnight Anti Aging Peel – Step 1
- Alpha/beta hydroxy acid leave-on peel solution
- Unique leave-on solution to refine skin using gold standard glycolic acid and professional grade lactic acid, salicylic acid
- Gently warms skin on contact and help open pores while encouraging skin micro-exfoliation
- Leave-on peel solution creates a pathway to allow skin to receive restoring benefits of the youth extending night gel
Philosophy Microdelivery Overnight Anti Aging Peel – Step 2
- Youth-extending night gel: an innovative, cucumber-scented memory gel texture applied over step 1 peel solution
- Formulated with skin-strengthening natural echinacea, anti-aging peptides, oat extract and bisabolol to help cool, soothe and comfort skin with deep hydration
You basically soak one of the pads with the Step 1 Alpha/beta hydroxy acid leave-on peel solution, leave it to work for a few minutes, then smooth on the gorgeously cooling and plumping Youth-extending night gel. These 2 steps give my skin instant smoothness. Once it has completely sunk in, I follow with my night cream.
And after 3 uses in a week, I am waking up with noticeably smoother looking, more unified, firm skin and I even think that my dreaded pores are less noticeable!
In clinical trials and self-assessment studies 74% showed an improvement in fine lines and wrinkles after one use, and after 3 uses within 1 week, 88% of women tested showed a reduction in pore size. After 4 weeks, 100% demonstrated an improvement in firmness. Recommended use is 2-3 times per week.
I am loving this stuff and want to keep it as part of my night time routine. I definitely think my skin is looking better after a week, and my makeup applies so nicely. Huge thumbs up from me!! Also I have had no irritation and it has gotten rid of some annoying dry skin I had around my chin. Excellent!
