This was the recent product I bought from the brand Philosophy! I have to say I was really excited when I got it, because I heard a lot of people saying wonders about this kit!
The brand says in the package that they pioneered a next-generation medical microdermabrasion procedure that rapidly resurfaces as it replenishes the skin with vitamine C.Etc!!! They also promise immediate and remarkable results!! At this stage, I got really thrilled and anxious to try this on my skin!
The box comes with two products and you need to apply them in also two steps. The first one to apply is the orange “scrub” and for last the “oil” that comes in the small botle.
The orange container has 60g of product with vitamin C and peptide crystals. The small botle has 60ml of lactic and salicylic acid activating gel, althought for me this feels more like an “oil”.
In these pictures I used my hand for demonstration, but this product is formulate to your face. In the instructions they say first to apply a teaspoon amount of the “orange” product in your clean and dry skin and gently massage (do not scrub) for 60 seconds, avoiding the eye area. In the second step, you will have also to put a generous small amount of the “oil/gel” in the palm of your hand and apply it on top of the orange crystals, gently massaging again your skin. Some white foam will appear and you should leave it for 2 to 3 minutes. In the end you rinse with water and your skin will feel soft and smooth!
You must have in mind that because this product contains a gel with an alpha acid (aha), this will increase your skin´s sensitivity to the sun. So It is really important to use a sunscreen (spf 50+) and avoid long hours of exposure to the sun, while using this Philososphy kit!
I have to say that I loved the effect this Philosophy “peel” did to my skin! However, I found this kit quite expensive and I won´t buy it again. There are out there in the market quite good exfoliating facial scrubs that also do similar job, but much more affordable!
My best regard!Zustta!
