peel to reveal your radiance

"regular exfoliation is a requirement and a critical step to help de-age the skin. in addition, it helps enhance the performance of your other skin care products. i recommend philosophy peels to my clients to help them quickly, easily and effectively rejuvenate their skin" - dr. mary lupo

cleanse and remove makeup in one simple step

"soap can be inflammatory on the skin. because purity made simple is a true skin purifier and emulsifier, it cleanses the skin effectively yet it is gently enough for the most sensitive skin. i love the way it leaves the skin with a perfectly balanced ph - plus it smells amazing!" - dr. mary lupo

give your skin the moisture it craves

"hope in a jar incorporates one of my favourite alpha hydroxyl acids, lactic acid. lactice acid helps promote moisture and hydration of the skin. it also functions as an effective, yet gentle, exfoliant. hope in a jar also features beta-glucan, which helps enhance skin immunity and encourage a healthy rosy glow"
