philosophy: The Microdelivery Peel

i've been using this product now for about 2 weeks, and i have to say i love it! my skin feels smoother, looks well hydrated and bright, and overall it has improved my skin's appearance. i have had little to no breakouts since using this system which, as many would agree, is fabulous! i shared previously that i do have some hyper-pigmentation spots on my skin, and they have faded quite noticeably. though my skin isn't flawless, i find myself having to use less make-up, and the make-up i do apply goes on smoothly (i usually use a primer, but i have been omitting this step for the purpose of reviewing this product). i also love the fresh citrus smell of the resurfacing crystals--yummy!

it's amazing how something as minute as a brighter complection can make a person feel better. i know the feeling of waking up to find a blemish somewhere on my face, and while it's a tiny (or not so tiny) thing, it can sure bring down my mood. i can't help, though, to think that it's a little superficial to let a pimple ruin your entire outlook until it's gone. well, i'm not that extreme, of course, but it can be a bummer when my skin doesn't look it's best (that's where great foundation and concealer come in!). dullness, uneven tone or puffy eyes can produce this feeing in people as well. i can't explain it, but i want to have great skin. i feel when my skin looks good, it gives me confidence. my face is what people see, i can't hide it, so i want it to look it's best. also, make-up goes on better, looks better, and really, you do use less (at least foundation/concealer-wise beacause there isn't so much to cover up!) :)

so, back to the Microdelivery Peel...

this 2 step in-home peel consists of the vitamin c/peptide resurfacing crystals and a lactic/salicylic acid activating gel:

*rebuilds skin with: peptides- a combination of amino acids that help rebuild the skin’s support structure. peptides helps improve the skin’s firmness and elasticity while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

*brightens skin with: vitamin c- this antioxidant and collagen stimulator offers anti-aging benefits, helps brighten the skin and helps protect against environmental attack.

*keeps skin clear with: salicylic acid- helps shed pore walls of dead skin cells and helps keep skin clear while minimizing congestion/breakouts.

* contains: lactic acid- exfoliates and moisturizes the skin which helps promote smooth, healthy skin.

with all these beneficial ingredients, i can see (literally) why my skin has improved the way it has!
