Philosophy Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash
Advantages: Skin did feel nice after use
This is a review of Philosophy Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash, a product which was included in the beauty advent calendar I worked my way through in December. I have seen the Philosophy brand on QVC before and know it is very highly regarded brand so was looking forward to trying it.
The Philosophy branding is very distinctive with black lettering over a white background and generally, some sort of quote or dictionary definition on the front of the product. This one says "... these micro moments make a lasting difference to our well-being. Micro efforts can smooth the bumpy road of time..." well that's one way of looking at our skin!!
I use this in the shower 2-3 times per week and have found it to be quite nice and gentle on the skin without feeling like I am removing a layer of skin each time! It has a clean soapy smell to it, quite strong and is easy to rinse off the skin (I hate it when you can still feel grains on your skin after exfoliating).
I quite liked using this product, it felt nice on my skin and I definitely noticed a brighter and clearer skin with no problem break outs or anything bad. Whilst I was pleased to get the chance to try it, I am conscious that this exfoliating wash is really expensive so that puts me off a bit as I feel there are other cheaper products out there that work just as well for me.
The cheapest price I have found online is at John Lewis who charge £19.80 for 240ml.
I am glad that I got the chance to try the Philosophy brand but to be honest, I wasn't really blown away by it. I thought it was OK but it didn't work any better than an ordinary exfoliator product I could buy for under a fiver. For me it is not a repurchase but not because it was rubbish, mainly because I think it is far too expensive for what it is.
Summary: Not for me
