      So it's been a few days... I gave it a 3 because, it's the same as any other product I tried with minimal results for the results that is claimed by the product line. I'm in the middle so to speak. My eyes still feel and look the same.

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

            Apparently these have replaced the previous retinol pads that I absolutely loved. These are extremely oily and the product doesn't soak into my skin very well - I wake up the next morning and my skin still feels greasy. The old formula felt refreshing and made my skin glow within days. This one made me breakout in a bunch of little whiteheads the morning after applying it - and I rarely ever breakout. I contacted Philosophy because I'm so disappointed that this product replaced the old formula, but sadly, they confirmed the old formula is retired. I'll have to find something else because this new formula is a far inferior product. I tried to stick with it for a couple weeks, but have noticed no benefits to my skin. In fact, my skin looks splotchy, dull, and full of little pimples. Not a good look.

              I was shocked at how incredible my skin looked after only first use! My skin was dewy and plump in the am. My skin looked less 'thick' and pores less noticeable. My makeup glided on Perfectky smooth. I can't believe there are so many negative reviews.

                    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.

                          • Q:

                            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.
