Review: Philosophy “The Microdelivery” Exfoliating Wash

I’ve been using Philosophy’s “Purity Made Simple” cleanser for a while now, but have decided to find something else – since it contains parabens.  I had kind of written off all Philosophy products, assuming that one product having parabens meant the rest would too.  However, that’s apparently not the case, so I tried the free sample I had of this product…

Pros:  Consistent exfoliating.  (Some products have random beads here and there, so they don’t work too well.)  Paraben-free.  No discernible fragrance.

Cons:  Expensive.  Can be a little hard to get every one of the exfoliating beads off your face.

In Summary:  I really like this cleanser.  It’s a little more gentle than the “microdermabrasion” stuff I’ve been using.  However, that product got discontinued so it’s getting hard to find.  This would be a good replacement – if it didn’t cost twice as much.  I’ll probably just end up using facial loofah discs…

Rating:  4 out of 5 stars 

Price:  $25 for 8 oz. bottle (Larger and smaller sizes available – it gets cheaper “per ounce” as the bottle gets bigger.)

Available at:  Ulta, Sephora,,, select military exchanges
