Birchbox Breakdown

Contrary to widespread belief, the age of miracles has not passed. Don’t believe us? Try these retinoid pads from miracle worker antiaging collection, which work diligently to diminish the look of fine lines and skin discoloration while minimizing the risk of irritation associated with traditional retinols.

How to Use

Pour the entire bottle of solution into the container of pads before first use, and discard bottle. Wipe one pad over clean face and backs of hands nightly for optimal results. Remember to use sunscreen as part of your daily routine. Store soaked pads in a cool, dry place, and use within three months.

Miracle Pads

This product was recommended by a few staff at Sephora. I was in search of 2 products. One to banish the melasma that stuck around after my 2 most recent pregnancies and one to help tighten up my "turkey neck" after weight loss. I was pleasantly surprised when Philosophy's Miracle Retanoid Pads were suggested for both. I am thrilled to announce that my melasma is 80% improved and my "turkey neck" is not as prominent as it was. I am thrilled with the results! Definitely worth the $75.

Love this!

I am a devoted follower of Philosophy skin care. My very sensitive skin reacts negatively to most products, so when I find something that works, I stick with it. I first tried these retinoids pads in December, and have just purchased a second jar. My skin texture is fantastic and my skin looks brighter. I did have a very small amount of flaking for the first week or so, but I think it was just the product removing old skin cells. I have not had anything like it since.

I got these as a sample from another retailer but LOVVVE Philosophy products and use several from the Hope is Not Enough line as well as an eye cream from this line. I used as directed and immediately felt my skin burning! The burning feeling lasted about an hour and afterwards my face felt extremely dry, even though I had moisturized as directed after applying these pads.

I may try them again----I got 15 in my sample pack. The only reason I would give them a try again is bc every other Philosophy product I have ever tried has been fabulous and works great! However, my skin might just be too sensitive for this one.

With all the other great products Philosophy has, I definitely would not pay $75 for this!

Interesting texture

These feel somewhat greasy but needs no residual. I feel like the dark spots are fading a bit.

Not for me

I have been using it for ten days now. The only changes I've noticed to my skin is it's dry and I broke out really bad. I have oily skin and it's normally not sensitive to skin products. I was really hoping this would work for me, but it's just making my skin worse.
