I was excited to trial these Philosophy products to enable me to write this Philosophy Microdelivery Overnight Anti-Aging Peel Review for you. Philosophy products are available from http://www.ry.com.au.
Philosophy is a brand that approaches beauty from a skincare point of view. Their products are based on cutting edge science and medical technology that delivers proven results.
As with a lot of women, the older I become the more interest I have in using anti-aging skin care products! This isn’t necessarily to look younger than my actual years but to look the best I can given my current age.
The Philosophy Microdelivery Overnight Anti-Aging Peel is a two step, leave-on anti-aging peel formulated to improve the visible signs of skin aging, including wrinkles, loss of firmness and enlarged pores.
It combines the immediate micro-exfoliation of a peel with the restorative benefits of an overnight sleeping mask to virtually eliminate the potential for irritation.
Step I: Alpha/Beta Hydroxy Acid Leave-On Peel Solution
Step I is an alpha/beta hydroxy acid leave-on peel solution which delivers exceptional resurfacing benefits gently throughout the night.
It is easy to use. You simply saturate one of the provided pads and wipe it over your cleansed skin without rinsing. The solution is dispensed using a dropper ensuring the solution remains hygienic and there is no wastage.
As this product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) which may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn make sure you do use a sunscreen and limit sun exposure while using this product and for the week afterwards.
Step II: Youth Extending Night Gel
Step II is the youth-extending night gel which elevates this peel to a revolutionary level by enhancing the ability of new skin cells to resist visible signs of aging.
You massage the gel into your skin and leave it on overnight.
This minty green coloured gel feels wonderfully cooling and soothing on the skin and can be used alone between peels too.
Clinical studies have shown that after one use 74% of women aged between 40 – 64 showed an improvement in the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
These studies further showed that after 3 uses within 1 week 88% of women tested showed a visible reduction in pore size.
After 4 weeks 100% of women demonstrated an improvement in firmness.
My findings have been similar to those in the above studies.
My skin has been looking more radiant, fresher and healthier in the morning after using this peel and has felt so much softer. My pores have reduced in size and there has been a visible improvement in my fine lines.
I know that the terms ‘alpha hydroxy acid’ and ‘peel’ can sound scary but please don’t be alarmed at them. This Philosophy Microdelivery Overnight Anti-Aging Peel is such a gentle product and I can honestly state that I have felt no irritation of my skin with this product whatsoever!
I love how this product works overnight while I sleep and while my skin is the most receptive to repairing itself.
I also love the minimalistic look of Philosophy packaging that always includes an inspirational message. The inspirational message on the Philosophy Microdelivery Overnight Anti-Aging Peel is ‘Sometimes you gain more when you let go’.
‘Letting go’ isn’t one of my strengths unfortunately so it is good to be reminded of this three times a week when I use this peel.
I highly recommend the Philosophy Microdelivery Overnight Anti-Aging Peel. The true sign of a product loved by a beauty blogger is when the beauty blogger continues using the product after the trial period has ended. I will definitely be continuing to use this peel three times a week. I also plan to purchase another box of these products when my current ones are finished.
The Philosophy Microdelivery Overnight Anti-Aging Peel is available to purchase from http://www.ry.com.au.
