    Comments about Philosophy Ultimate Miracle Worker SPF 30:

    I stared with a mini jar , and had to go back for the biggin. I am truly a minimalist when it comes to skincare and make up. So I want a eye cream that does it all and a moisturizer that does it all. And this cream is great . Em 47 and have a one in-between my eyes instead of a two. and this cream has really softened it up.

            I use this product every morning after I use the facial cleaner from philosophy which is the best!! Then I apply this ultimate miracle worker along with hope in a tube for my eyes. Ive done this for 2 weeks straight amd my skin is hydrated, healthier looking, and no breakouts. Just in case you have sensitive skin like I do it doesn't bother it at all.

              I use this everyday before I put on my primer, and that even goes on smoother with, but at night when I don't need sun protection it's a must before my makeup. It's not greasy and although it's not incredibly moisturizing it will cure dry spots for the time being. I've yet to try any other phiospohpy product but I wouldn't be hesitant too, this is worth the money.

                          The Ultimate Miracle Worker SPF 30 moisturizer provides a rich layer over your skin in order to address the target areas. The Ultimate Miracle Worker SPF 30 also comes in an Emulsion, which may provide a light-weight coverage while still maintaining the same effect as the moisturizer. This maybe the better choice under your make-up.

                          because rosacea is a diagnosed skin condition, we always recommend that you check with your physician before using any new products. this product contains a high performance bi-retinoid, which may not agree with rosacea prone skin.
