What: Philosophy Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash, $25
Why: I am willing to try anything once, but when it comes to my face, it's usually just once. However, that wasn't the case when I road-tested Philosophy's Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash. I had no idea what microdelivery meant – still don't – but I don't particularly care. This face wash is amazing. It feels like very fine sand gently rubbing against your skin. It's the perfect balance between gentle and grainy. I can't stand those cleansers that claim they exfoliate when all they consist of are puny bubbles.
So I am now hooked on this stuff and will not be going back to my drugstore brand anytime soon. Great for my face, not so fantastic for my wallet. Ah well, small price to pay for noticeably improved skin.
