the microdelivery peel from Philosophy
Exfoliation and peeling are often times assumed to mean the same.
Exfoliating is basically using a scrub (creams or gel) or even an extra strong retinoid to take dead surface skin cells off. This is something you can comfortably do at your own home and exfoliating products are readily available at every drugstore. Most women exfoliate once a week, some 2-3x. It all depends on your skin actually.
A peel, usually conducted at a prof doctors office, takes a deeper layer of skin off. Those are the chemical peel that makes your skin entirely red and looks burned afterwards but after a few weeks, you'd see the effect when a new fresh layer of your skin grows. You'll have that 'you look 10 years younger!' vibe. Thing is, they are costly.
But then if you'd gonna sum it up, peeling is still a part of the exfoliation process.
Philosophy recently launched the Microdelivery Peel Skincare range; another breakthrough to help nature along so to speak.
How can Philosophy do that?
This range targets to diminish skin aging (as we mature, our skin cells slow down and they are not as active anymore to exfoliate our dead skin cells); it also helps to reduce appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, even out skin tones, improves skin clarity...an over-all achievement of healthy, brighter and glowing skin.
If you find that microdermabrasion is too expensive for you, Philosophy released this range to incorporate in your current skincare routine and see effective immediate results.
features & benefits
The treatment is known as the microdelivery peel and is popular among plastic surgeons and their patients. philosophy offers a less expensive, less invasive in-home version of the microdelivery peel. We do not just give your skin a peel, we give it a complete skin makeover in just three minutes. What makes this next generation microdelivery peel so revolutionary is that, unlike peels of the past that only exfoliated, it delivers peptides and vitamin c to the skin as it is being rapidly exfoliated. It is resurfacing and replenishing the skin at the same time, which involves absolutely no downtime.

Press Launch: Happenings
They let us try the Microdelivery Triple-Acid Brightening Peel and I chose to apply it on my knees for the road test.
The pad smells citrusy, pleasant and a bit cool to the touch. I did not feel any tingling effect and there was no tacky feel after the application.
The lighting inside the press room made it difficult for me to see the results but the glow it gave my skin afterwards was significantly present. I can literally imagine what more if applied on the face!
This is exfoliation in the convenience of a peel. I loved the softness of the pad and feels soft on my skin. This is really pretty gentle for an exfoliating pad. Great for travel as well huh.
