About Philosophy The Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash – Does it really work?

philosophy-the-microdelivery-exfoliating-wash

This facial wash is meant to be a mild exfoliator that is used while in the shower, bath, or even when just simply washing your face. The ingredients in this bottle all help to remove the day’s dirt, dead skin cells, and other impurities while helping new, fresher skin to surface with daily use. Mild enough to be used everyday, it promotes a healthy-looking glow with a smoother feel. Micro-exfoliating beads help to polish in order to achieve younger-looking skin in the process with lesser dry areas and a more even skin tone and texture. Some users claim it can be sticky on the skin and that the scent is not very pleasant, and because it only provides mild exfoliation, it is not definite how soon results can be noticed.
