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?.

I love using this in the morning before makeup. It keep my skin protected and is super light. Plus a little goes a long way so I don't have to stress about the price
Causes acne for combo/oily types
Sadhaka from San Diego, CA
I don't think this works for my skin type, which is really unfortunate given how nice it feels when I first put it on. I've changed a number of things over the last several months to clear my face up but I notice that this particular product leaves my skin feeling incredibly oily the entire day. The days I don't use it, my skin is not as oily.
I think this a good product if you have drier skin. It just doesn't work for my combination skin.
Made my skin breakout
Jessica from Chicago IL
I purchased this because of the spf in it. However after 5 days I began breaking out all over my Tzone and I am not typically acne prone(I have combination skin for reference).Unfortunately I will be returning it.
I will buy this product again!
Nicki from Fort Worth
I love this product! it goes on smoothly - which is hard to find with a 30spf! My Lancome makeup goes right over it!
Would purchase again
Mc from Tx
I use daily. I am in my 60s, work full time go outside often. Great product
Greasy every time!!
Alesia from Portland
I've been using this for months HOPING that it wasn't just me and that my skin would get used to how thick this moisturizer is - and no I don't put a ton of this on but immediately after my skin is shiny and greasy and it just stays like that the remainder of the day. Mind you, I have combination skin and I wanted to try something other than the Clinique moisture surge moisturizer but unfortunately this stuff is horrible for my skin type!
annieb from Bloomfield Hills, MI
Trying this out for the winter months. It has SPF and is great for dry skin. It feels great on the skin and not greasy at all. Would highly recommend it!
love this product.
Pallat from Michigan
I use it morning and evening.
Viv from California
I never was one to use sunscreen.. until I found out how important it was so I tried this one and ITS THE BEST. If you have dry skin I highly recommend this product your skin is hydrated all day and alittle goes a long way with this particular product. It's more on the pricey side but it's completely understandable it's a great sunscreen with out a doubt !
Simply the best!!
Lynn from Justice
I love this product. I bought it last year and it lasted all year. I use it every morning. Love it!
All day moisture and sunscreen

Not good for oily skin
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
Blondee from Walker, Louisiana
Love this moisturizer. It's works great for my dry skin
