philosophy ‘makeup optional’ skin kit for congested skin

Does your skin need to be decongested? Cover up is not a solution for clogged pores, mild blemishes, irregular texture or lack of skin radiance. The key is 24/7 exfoliation of your skin and the continuous shedding of your pore walls. The ‘makeup optional’ systems incorporate a weekly 2-phase microdelivery peel with a daily 4-step skin regimen. Our program will help decongest clogged pores, smooth irregular texture, even out skin tone and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while restoring your radiance so makeup is truly an option.

Kit contains ‘purity made simple’ one-step facial wash (8 oz.), ‘when hope is not enough’ peptide-rich oil-free firming and lifting serum (1 oz.), ‘hope in a bottle’ topical treatment moisturizer for congested skin (2 oz.), ‘hope in a tube’ high-density eye and lip firming cream (0.5 oz.) and a three-week supply of the famous microdelivery peel foil packs
