      Stopped into Ulta the other day. Just looking around when I noticed a lady with AMAZING skin! She stood out because she literally had no makeup on. She asked me if I needed Help finding anything. I told Her I was Just looking around she said "well my name is Viola if you should need anything let me know" I walked Around the store alittle more but couldn't stop thinking about how great she looked. So I approvhed Her and said "your skin is amazing what do you use" I spent half hour just talking with her. She asked me questions about my skin, skincare and Ultimate goals. I bought miracle worker and I AM SO HAPPY! My skin is looking better and better! I plan On stopping back to the Royal Oak Ulta soon just to see Viola.

        Comments about Philosophy Ultimate Miracle Worker SPF 30:

        I had a sample of this just like other creams I had and I said what the heck let me try it out. It's AMAZING!! It hydrated my skin extremely well. It feels buttery soft when you're applying it AND you can't go wrong with the spf. I have combo skin and I don't see it making me feel anymore oily than I usually am. You need to get this!

            Comments about Philosophy Ultimate Miracle Worker SPF 30:

            This is one of my favorite product lines for moisturizers and treatments. Philosophy facial washes and fragrance lotions are far too drying/cloying for my personal taste. However, this product is especially excellent. I use this every morning and mix in a bit of the Vitamin C powder (a must-have in my arsenal). At night I use a prescription retinol cream (5%) and half a scoop of Vitamin C, a Hylauronic Acid serum, and then add 'Hope in a Jar' on top. I'm in my late 30's and my skin still looks like I'm 21 (or even better than it did at 21) as long as I also get enough sleep and drink enough water. It doesn't completely delay aging, but it makes a huge difference. When I go a week or two without this product my skin does not have a glow to it and I find I need makeup. With these products I need no facial makeup, except a dab of blush and eye makeup. I love taking care of my skin and spending almost nothing on facial primers/powders/foundations/etc.

              I have tried many moisturizers with SPF added to them. For the first time, I don't feel I'm tightness or greasiness. For a 57 year old, my skin looks nice and I want to keep it that way! Sun protection is so important in the sun and wanted a product that moisturizes well and protects my skin.

If you are looking to add a moisturizer with SPF, we would recommend the Take a Deep Breath SPF 30 Oil-free Oxygenating Gel Cream.
