Philosophy The Microdelivery Dream Peel Review

Review of Philosophy The Microdelivery Dream Peel

Philosophy’s cult classic The Microdelivery Dream Peel smooths out skin texture, reveals a fresh glow and reduces the appearance of pores and fine lines. This award-winning at-home peel didn’t leave my skin feeling cracked or overly dry and there was no random peeling throughout the day. Keen to learn more? You’re in the perfect place; keep reading to find out how I got on when I put this overnight peel to the test.


The Most Important Thing About This Philosophy Peel Is…

The exfoliating peel offers noticeable results in just 3 days, while reducing fine lines and pore visibility over time. As the gel dries to be clear and non-transferable, 6% AHAs & BHAs are released while you sleep to exfoliate the skin and reveal an ultra-smooth, healthy complexion through a non-aggressive peeling process.


What Skin Type Is It For?

The Dream Peel can be enjoyed by any skin type with people who are concerned about pores, fine lines, uneven skin tone and dullness.


You Will Love This If…

If you want a deep exfoliation to quickly see results in your skin, you’ll love the fast acting Philosophy The Microdelivery Dream Peel. The gel is smooth to apply and makes a change from traditional granulated exfoliators and glycolic toners. The dream peel stands out against many skin smoothing products for its innovative application process and the incredibly fast results: 2 weeks of using the peel 3 nights in a row each week will radically improve the health of your skin.


Hero Ingredients:

Your skin is balanced and restored by the resetting probiotic complex whilst the 6% AHAs/BHAs work to refine the skin’s texture and minimise fine lines. The complexion becomes more luminous with a healthy, youthful glow encouraged by the hibiscus extract.


What Does It Feel Like?

The dream peel applies as a smooth gel that sits on top of the skin, drying over 15 minutes. You can feel the gel sitting on your face but it is lightweight and doesn’t affect movement in your face. As the mask dries, it becomes less noticeable and is comfortable to sleep in without causing pillow transfer.

You can use the gel all over the face, but I used it on my chin and cheeks where I have particularly rough pores as a more targeted treatment, which worked well.


What Does It Smell Like?

There is no added fragrance, but the gel has a mild floral scent.


How Do You Use The Product?

The very important first step is to turn the white nozzle underneath the spatula to the ‘ON’ setting – this got me the first time I tried it! Gently squeeze the gel onto the pink spatula – the gel matches the pink perfectly! Smooth the gel-covered spatula over your face in a thin layer, wiping and closing the cap once you’re finished.

After 15 minutes, the gel will have dried from the initial slightly pink colour to be completely clear and non-transferable. Sleep on it and wash your face with warm water when you wake up. Make sure to use an SPF after using the peel.


What’s Special About The Design?

The Microdelivery Dream Peel is designed to be mess-free, with a smooth spatula that makes application quick and easy. The locking nozzle and soft tube makes the Philosophy peel travel-friendly without running the risk of leaks.
