Most Helpful Positive Review On the fence
I was a loyal user of the old Miracle Worker retinol pads and loved it! It appears you can now only get this new formula so I gave it a try. My main complaint was the pads! The old pads were fine but these new ones are so flimsy and hard to use! They just roll right up and it's difficult to keep them straight! I also noticed a previous poster said her skin started getting dry and flaky. I noticed that too-but thought I was coming down with some other skin condition. Now I am wondering if it's from the new formula! So this is why I am on the fence about it. Please Philosophy-at least go back to the old pads!!!!!!
Most Helpful Critical Review new formula
I have used the old formula of the miracle worker pads for several years. I loved the formula and also the pads. I used them every night without any problems and I did have good results with fine lines and wrinkles diminishing.
I was eager to try the new pads. Sadly I am not sure that I would recommend them and may have to discontinue them myself. The pads themselves are smaller, thinner and kind of roll up when you use them.
Also the new formula is very strong. I am only able to use them about 1-2 times a week. It leaves my skin very dry in patches that flake badly and make it difficult to wear makeup without seeing those dry patches. I have used retinol for years, I am 52 and have never had sensitive skin. I have never had this experience with the other formula and/or any other retinol products.
I hope that with continued use it will get better. Is anyone experiencing the same issues?.

ThirtySomething from Texas
I wanted to love this cream but I just couldn't. It left my skin greasy and only got worse throughout the day. On top of that, it made me break out. Maybe good for some, but not for oily, acne prone skin.
Best daytime moisturizer I have used.
Jen from Utah
I use this product, with an eye cream every day. I love that it has 30spf, and my skin stays hydrated all day.
Irritated my skin
Jess from College Station, TX
I have no allergies nor have I ever noticed sensitive skin or had a reaction to any product before. So my major issue with this product is that it irritated my skin for the first week of use until my skin adjusted. It looked like I had razor burn on my face and neck and I don't shave at all. It went away after a week with continued use both times I tried the product. Other than that I had no issues but I probably won't be using it again. It was a bad reaction, just made me weary.
RICH AND CREAMY! lOVE IT. WILL BUY IT AGAIN

Really like product so far, and yes I'll buy again, hope you will not forget women in their seventies who continue to take care of their skin. I am Hispanic.
I would buy this again at a discount!
Joya from Marion Tx
I usually like philosophy but I can only use this at night, during the day it creates chunky balls if I rub my face after it dries so I have to completely rub it off to wear makeup.
Purchase 9/20 expiration date of 12/20
Dawn from Ft Lauderdale FL
The product could be fantastic but Ulta sold me a jar with an expiration date of 12/20, 3 months from now.
I am not happy.
Keny from Missouri
I love this moisturizer! It just melts into your skin. I use it everyday under my foundation and love the results I get. My skin visibly looks younger. The SPF is great too!

True miracle for my over 60 skin
Cosmetic Snob from Phoenix, Md.
Have been using Philosophy products for over 10 yrs. In love with both Body and Skin Care, especially fell
in love with this anti-aging Miracle line. Ideal for my age bracket and have noticed a change in skin texture,
healthy glow and decreased lines around the mouth. Don't hesitate to try this Ultimate Miracle
Worker SPF30. You won't be disappointed. Always order several during the Ulta 19 days of beauty sale.
Can't beat this for 1/2price! Give yourself and your skin a well deserved treat!
Ash from ID
This product left a sticky/gritty feeling on my face that never dissipated after letting it dry excessively before putting make-up on. It made putting/keeping make-up on a pain too. I wanted to love it, but it did not work for me. I will be returning.
I really like this facial cream
Redhead from Illinois
Use it as a moisturizer and sunscreen

Love this moisturizer. It's works great for my dry skin
Sheri from Springfield, Illinois
One jar in the drawer for sunscreen and day and nighttime moisturizing. No irritation.
Wanted to like this, but it just didn't work
Natalia from Los Angeles
This lotion has a super luxurious feeling. It definitely has a fragrance, but I liked it, so I didn't mind. I had to be careful with how much I put on, because this lotion could quickly make my face greasy. I have pretty dry skin, so this was a surprise. I also don't know if it ever felt like this lotion truly absorbed. I was willing to deal with that part, but the dealbreaker for me was how this product pills under any other product. I've tried it under BB cream, regular foundation, tinted sunscreen, and it pilled under every single one. It's really disappointing because I wanted to love this product, but it just doesn't work for my skin.
Retinol pads review
P from TN
Pads are expensive but worth it in my opinion. They are very effective!! Not irritating and my skin is smoother and glowing. Use 3x / week at night. Love the application, much easier than a thick cream. Don't notice any fragrance. Make sure to moisturize and use spf!
I love this product. I'm over 65 and this is a great product

I would buy this again
Cindy from Texas
Well let me tell ya I'm not one to believe that a cream could work miracles but whatever is in this cream really does work. After a week I do see that my pores are smaller n skin feels great. Now yes it did my my face a bit oily and do not wear makeup on top of it. But once I rinse my face with water I'm good to go with makeup..
Not noticing any improvements yet

Robin from enid ok
This product did absolutely nothing at all for my skin. Definitely not soft not smooth. It was better wearing nothing at all. This made my shin rough. I will never buy this or any of this brand name again.
Jelly from Bakersfield
