      Comments about Philosophy Ultimate Miracle Worker Multi-Rejuvenating Retinol + Superfood Oil Pads:

      Went in specifically to purchase the Philosophy Retinol Pads that I always bought. Could not find the one that was in white container with textured pads inside. Figured this was just new packaging. I couldn't have been more wrong. This is a different formula that, while greasy upon application, made my normal skin horribly dry. The old formula made my skin look better right after I used a pad, and the texture helped exfoliliate to a degree. Have been looking to see if the old formula is still available, but it looks like they've replaced it with this one. Very disappointed. Will be returning it to the store.

                  Comments about Philosophy Ultimate Miracle Worker Multi-Rejuvenating Retinol + Superfood Oil Pads:

                  So disappointed that Philosophy changed this product. The old pads did a great job of cleaning out pores, exfoliating, ang getting my skin ready for a moisturizer. These pads are so thin and flimsy they're hard to use. The added oil leaves my skin feeling like it's covered with an oil slick. Definitely will not buy this product again. Philosophy please bring back the old ones!

                        I have uneven skin tone (melasma/hyperpigmentation), large pores, and the start of wrinkles I just started using this product 4 days ago and already feel a difference in my skin. I've been using it nightly along with Juice Beauty Green Apple Age Defy Serum am & pm. My skin is peeling!! My skin feels tight and so soft! I've been using it on my neck and it looks tighter! I haven't seen much change in the discoloration but I fully expect for spots to lighten based on what I've seen so far. I have a deepish wrinkle on my forehead and that has softened as well. I've tried several peel pads (PTR, Exuviance, etc.) and these are the first to do this! I definitely will keep using. Also - I cut the pads in half to extend the use. It works just fine for face, neck, & decollete doing this! Compared to other pads (I'm use to them being super saturated), these seem like there isn't much liquid on them, but because of the superfood delivery, it feels more like a skin oil than a thin chemical liquid. The liquid is there & it's doing its job! They are AWESOME!

                            Can this product be used continuously as part of a skin regimen? Or is it intended as an occasional booster? I've only used it for a few days and already seeing results. I'm over 50 so that's impressive.
