New from Philosophy comes a two-step face mask designed to clarify, calm, decongest, and brighten the skin. Formulated with activated charcoal, barley and rosemary extract, The Microdelivery Detoxifying Oxygen Peel ($89 CAD) gently foams on the face to deeply penetrate the pores.

This two-step facial mask comes in two 60ml tubes, one holding "Step I" the Detoxifying Charcoal Gel, and the other holds "Step II", the Oxygen Foam Booster. In addition to the two tubes of masks, the set also includes a "derma blade", a small plastic scooper designed to help easily scrape the mask off of the face.

The first step, the Detoxifying Charcoal Gel, is a lightweight black-colored gel formulated with activated charcoal, barley extract, and rosemary extract. The gel feels very cooling on the face, providing a very invigorating sensation. After the application of the Detoxifying Charcoal Gel, the step two (Oxygen Foam Booster) is to be spread right on top of the gel. With a thicker gel texture, the Oxygen Foam Booster slowly foams and expands when mixed with the Charcoal Gel, creating a slightly tingling sensation. If you tried any foaming masks, then you'll see that this works pretty much the same way, except that it's divided into two steps.
The included spatula works really well at removing most of the mask but I would still recommend using a sponge or a wet towel to wash away the extra. After using this mask, my face felt instantly softer and smoother. The formulation gently exfoliates without leaving the skin dry or irritated. Overall, I really like this product. It is a lot more effective compared to other foaming masks I've tried but the price is quite steep.
