I love Philosophy's line of skin care products and have used them for a long time. They are a bit pricey, but worth it. I love the shower gel/creams too. This product has worked wonders on my skin's texture and the overall look of wrinkles. I thought I could age gracefully, but I can't! These products work great and doesn't cause my skin to break out. I use these products only at night, before bed. The retinoid products are best used at night, since they have no SPF. Aging is fine with me, but I can't handle all the little wrinkles that are making their presence known now. Thank goodness for all of Philosophy's products.
I haven't used this for very long but just like all of Philosophy's products this seems like a good one. It is gentle on my skin and seems like a good product.

My Experience: Due to the need for a new skincare regime, I decided to change my entire skin care collection. Since using Miracle Worker, the change to my skin texture, fine lines on my forehead and breakouts is nothing less than remarkable. I swear, it's mostly due to the Retinoid Solution, because I haven't tried the Miraculous Anti-Aging Moisturizer. I use the Miracle Worker set only in the evening before bed. Based upon other reviewer’s recommendations, I cut the pads in half before pouring the solution over them. They felt a little small the first few times I used them, but I quickly got used to the size. I would very enthusiastically state that the Miracle Worker set does exactly what it says it will do. I feel much better about the state of my skin and I would highly recommend Miracle Worker to anyone that requires a skin miracle... ;)
I am a huge fan of retinol night treatments and have had great results with other treatments in the past. Philosophy just released these and they are far superior to any other retinol treatment I've used!
This is a high performance retinol product combined with other skin savers to reduce irritation that sometimes happens with retinol. The product comes in two parts, a container of 60 pads, and a bottle of solution - all you do is pour the entire bottle of the solution over the pads and it all absorbs perfectly! After washing your face at night, sweep one pad over your entire face (and back of your hands) and follow with your moisturizer - very easy, and the solution sinks right in to the skin, it's not greasy or heavy. Normally, retinol treatments need a good 8-12 weeks to see visible results, but I have been using them for two weeks now and already have softer, smoother, brighter skin and hands - I'm in love! I haven't had an purging, redness, flaking, or dryness - in fact my moisturizer seems to work with my skin a lot better with these pads. They are expensive, but if you love skincare and are looking for an amazing all in one treatment - I'd absolutely recommend this!
