Always remember to protect your skin from the sun when using retinoid products, even on overcast days. Try philosophy’s moisturizing take a deep breath SPF 30.


Birchbox Breakdown

In an effort to hide your tired, puffy eyes, covering them with sunglasses only takes you so far (and wearing them at night is just asking for your inner-klutz to make an appearance). Luckily, this multitasking serum by philosophy works miracles on the delicate eye area, minimizing wrinkles, discoloration, uneven skin tone, and rough texture. If only it could cure our lack of sleep...

How it Works

philosophy’s unique high-performance retinoid technology speeds cell turnover, promotes collagen production, and minimizes the appearance of wrinkles and discoloration. Targeted peptides reduce undereye bags and dark circles for a bright, youthful appearance. The lightweight formula glides on easily and can be worn under makeup.

How to Use

After washing your face, use your ring finger to gently pat a small amount of cream onto the undereye area until it is fully absorbed. Use morning and night.

Great. But absolutely terrible packaging!!

Philosophy --- why do you do this?! This product is great, though expensive, it does it's job and substantiates it's claims. But why, oh why, does this have to be a pump. You try your best to be extremely careful not to waste this precious 0.5 ounces... and then 2x the amount you need comes out of this. I'm begging for a pot of this stuff... or even a squeeze bottle... just not a pump. End rant.

The best I have tried

I have tried MANY eye creams, from low end drug store to high end brands. My main issue is puffiness. Nothing seemed to give me the results I was looking for. I was introduced to Philosophy's Miracle Worker and within a few weeks of using this product day and night, my eye bags were noticeably smaller and I had less puffiness when I woke up. As well as, the dark circles slightly diminished. After a month, there was more improvement. I started using this last Spring and haven't looked back. It is expensive, but it worked for me.

Absolutely Love It!!!

I love Philosophy's Miracle line, especially this eye repair serum. It is velvety smooth when applying and soothes my tired eyes. I use it daily under makeup and nightly after cleansing. It seems to have smoothed the fine lines that are coming with age. I do not have very many wrinkles yet, so hoping this helps to keep them at bay for a long time! In any case, I have not had any adverse reaction to the product and I love the way it feels silky smooth.

Made me cry every time

I'll start by saying I do not have sensitive skin, so I was not afraid to use as powerful a product as I could find. I bought this because I was eager to try retinol for my under-eye wrinkles. I used it at night, and another product with SPF during the day. When putting this on, I was careful to keep it out of my eyes, but had to get very close, as that's where the wrinkles are. Each time I used it, my eyes soon started to water and tear up, likely washing away the product along with my hope of a miracle.
