I’ve been a fan of Philosophy for years, ever since I first tried and fell in love with their chocolate chip cookie-scented products. Now, almost 20 years later, I still love their products, especially their skin-care lines. Recently, I received a sample of the Philosophy Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash, and it is wonderful…
Price: $25.00 at philosophy.com
I was expecting this wash to be thicker, more of a cream or lotion, but it’s very light, more like a thin liquid. As soon as I began rubbing it on my face, I noticed the scent, too, which is somewhat medicinal, but very pleasant.
Now, my complaint with most exfoliating washes is that they’re either too gentle (not exfoliating enough!) or that they leave my skin feeling greasy. This wash is neither — after scrubbing for the recommended 30 to 60 seconds, and rinsing, my skin felt tingly, refreshed, and soft, but not greasy or filmy. I used a little moisturizer after, and felt a subtle, radiant glow for hours. Now I use the Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash daily, and I even bought a small size bottle to keep in my gym bag for using after I work out.
I had been using another exfoliating wash that I loved, but this is my new favorite.
