philosophy the microdelivery triple-acid brightening peel
Baby soft smooth skin...
I was originally going to buy the microdelivery peel but saw the ready made pads in-store for the same price so went for these to avoid the mess and fuss.
The pads are large and they is plenty of the lotion to treat your face, neck (and decolletage area should you wish).
The pad glides over my skin and my skin actually feels hydrated after applying. After a few minutes my skin began to tingle (not unpleasant).
I left it on and went to bed.
The next day my skin was so soft and smooth and had a really lovely glow so I didn't need to wear any BB cream that day.
What I did find was my face got quite flushed once I was at work (heating was on due to time of year) and my face stayed red for most of the day (not uncomfortable).
I have always had sensitive skin but just on cheeks so it was this area that was affected but on the following day all the redness had gone and the glowing effect continued for another day or two.
After 8-9 uses my fine lines have reduced and pores on my nose minimalised, I thought it would get rid of my blackheads but they are still visible.
Because this redness happened over the next few uses I now use a pad and rinse my face will cool water after about an hour to give the lotion time to work and now have no redness the next day, if you have sensitive skin you could try this method.
It's expensive but a great treatment to give your skin a youthful glow!

ONLY A FEW PADS ARE SATURATED
I recently purchased a few packs of these as they were on offer and were intended for use by a number of people in a bridal party before the big day at the end of May...
As a loyal user of Philisophy I thought these would be perfect as I use a vast array of their product range, but I was not only annoyed but disappointed to discover that quite a large number of pads were placed in the packets completely dry; this was the case in every packet that was purchased. As the product itself is not a cheap purchase, it would never have crossed my mind that this situation would have occurred.
It is clear that there is a serious batch problem which is down to the manufacturer, Philosophy; i will be returning this order back to Boots for a refund as the product is faulty and does not deliver what the product specifies.

Does what it says on the package
This is not a harsh peel. Therefore, if you have never used a peel this is a great introduction. I have used two kinds of Philosophy peels and I find this to be more safe, easier, cleaner, and convenient. This peel is great for holidays because it does not take up liquid space (although peels are not recommended if you are going to a sunny destination). I am a person of colour, and I found that after 4 satchels my skin tone improved in terms of colour (brighter tone), and texture (soft/smooth). However, you will notice change after using the 2nd satchel. My skin looks renewed. I would say it is glowing! Saying that I am also using Philosophy exfoliating peel and a home made charcoal mask. Before I started using this peel my skin (for the last year) looked dull, dry, and discoloured. I tried every vitamin (which use to replenish my skin) but nothing seemed to work. It did take 4-5 months (to totally see new skin), but I did not use it every week like recommend (first used the first 4 every week then the one satchel every three weeks).
