Philosophy Miracle Worker Miraculous Anti-Aging Retinoid Pads and Solution

Philosophy's newest offering, Miracle Worker Miraculous Anti-Aging Retinoid Pads and Solution, ($70) is expensive, but here's the clincher: we've been told by Sephora staff and devotees of these pads that you can just use it for just eight weeks every six months, so the cost isn't that prohibitive. The high performance retinoid formula increases skin cell turnover, like Retin-A, but without the drying, irritating effects. It's packed with vitamins C & E, skin conditioners, and botanical soothing agents, too. Decant some solution onto the pads provided and swipe over skin daily: soon, you'll see newly radiant, clear skin.

**Editor's Note** - Our every-six-months recommendation was based on user reviews, conversations with our local Sephora staff, and a recommendation from a dermatologist about retinoid use in general for our hyper-hyper-hyper sensitive skin. Philosophy contacted us personally to say that Miracle Worker pads are much gentler than other companies' retinoid products, so are meant to be used continually for best results.

The cost does not seem too bad for only having to use it for a short time - but my concern is the chemicals! I do not use any at all on my skin anymore and it feels great! I drink lots of water, use pure olive oil for moisturizer and take my natural probiotics from Vidazorb (OPC age defense) which is so much healthier than anything with chemicals I think! I know we all want to look young but at what cost does this have to come?

Where did you find out you only need to use the product every 6 months? I keep hearing either that or continuously...can you verify this?

This is from my personal experience as a gal with EXTREMELY sensitive, dry skin - a dermatologist told me never, ever to use retinoid products continuously, but to space 'em out, since otherwise it'd dry my skin out like crazy and maybe make it break out worse. I also got the same recommendation from a clerk at my local Sephora store who had similarly dry skin. If you have oilier/combination skin, continuous use might be for you. Check with your local Sephora staff and/or docs. Good luck, Neens!
