Philosophy Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash

RATING (out of 5 stars): 3.5 stars

COST: $15 for 4 ounces, other sizes available

THE SKINNY: Philosophy's Pure ... is my cleanser of choice. The new Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash is relatively inexpensive enough to make a nice addition to my cleansing routine because it's something I would only use once or twice a week.

Philosophy says this cleanser is gentle enough to be used every day, but I found the exfoliating grit to be a little rough on my skin for that. It will give my skin a nice buffing every so often. (This is where the $8 2-ounce bottle available online will be perfect.)

The cleanser is mild and effective and it really did leave my skin feeling bright.

The grit is a little rougher than Aveeno Daily Detoxifing Scrub or St. Ives' formulas but not quite as scary as Vasanti Brighten Up.

KEEP OR TOSS: Keep.

CHECK IT OUT: Keep an eye on the Philosophy website and you can catch some great deals.
