I use this once a week in rotation with other products that are similar. I leave it on for longer than what it says before washing it off. Right after use my skin feels clean and fresh. It also adds a little bit of moisture as well. Philosophy the Microdelivery Peel does not require you to peel anything away but it works like that invisibly. The only downside to this product it does sting a little when applied and I could see why those with overly sensitive skin would not be able to use this product at all. I am also not sure that this product helps with my breakouts but it does feel nice after using it so I continue to use it. I would recommend this to those with dry skin and combination or oily. I would not recommend it to those with sensitive skin. Effectiveness It does a great job at clearing out skin and getting gunk out of pores. Ease of Application It is very easy to apply and goes on smoothly. It is also easy to rinse off as well. Scent The scent is overall pretty nice and not strong.
