Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pads for people that can't use the original retinol pads These pads are wonderful and my favorite because I find them gentle and milder than the philosophy mircle worker pads. I think the superfood oils helps balance out the retinol and leaves your face feeling baby soft. Please don't discontinue this product, this pad is great for people that have sensitive skin but still wish to use retinol to improve their skin. +++

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is the Ultimate Miracle Worker Growing up in California I have a lot of skin damage to my face. Just little bumps and of course, old age spots. I started using this product about a year ago and the bumps are flat and some of the brown spots are gone and one rather large one has faded quite a bit. But I use it in tandem with Time in a Bottle. Which one works best - I don't know and I wouldn't give up either one. But one added benefit from this is I started putting it on a rather nasty keloid scar that runs down my arm and within the last 6 months it has gone perfectly flat. Everyone in the family has noticed. Wonderful product.

My face feels so soft, my scaring is diminishing which was a main concern! I couldn’t be happier with my purchase! I now use the night, eye & day cream as well...perfect regimen for my skin!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Key to great skin I am a big fan of the retinol pads and think that they are the key ingredient to great skin. I've been using these since the debuted, and I have noticed that the pads themselves are thinner than the previous version of the retinol pads, which means they transfer more of the product onto your face. I've considered trying other types of retinol, but since my skin looks so great using these, I don't think I need to fix something that isn't broken.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the new formula I have been a long time user of the original formula. After reading all the negative reviews I was SO worried to try the new formula. I am very pleasantly surprised! I've had no bad reaction with the new formula and I really love the new pads! Yes the pads are thin, but they are a lot smoother than the older rough pads. I'm not sure if you could cut the new pads in half like I used to to do with the old ones, but all in all I think the new formula is great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Takes Getting Used To But Worth It I bought the set as the TSV on QVC. I'd been using Miracle Worker Day/Night combo for a couple of years and am a huge fan of Purity. First, I used the pads only at night before bed and I used the 30SPF day cream in the morning. A couple weeks in, I had some peeling, but wow, my skin looks fantastic now. My skin is glowing, my newish age spots are disappearing, the skin around the eye area has firmed up and looks amazing. I went to a party last night without any foundation, just a little powder. That wouldn't have happened last year. I use the pads on my face and décolletage only. They were a bit too harsh to use around my neck, so I stopped. I have been using the last bits of each pad on the top of each hand when I'm done. Wish I'd taken before and after of that. I don't think you need to change the formula, I'd like to see better instructions on how to use. The pads work fine for me, the keys is to swipe across lightly, not rub and definitely not to scrub your face with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works just like they say it will I am 68 and had age lines on my upper lip. Nothing seemed to work. I've been a Philosophy girl over ten years now. This is definitely working!! I can't believe how shinning my skin looks in the morning after washing. It is extremely light and silky and feels like there is nothing on my skin. I hope this is kept in the line for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great products and customer service is phenomenal!! I am so happy to have found this quality skin care products and makeup. I will be using only philosophy products from now on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this I love these pads and the results that I have seen so far. At first, it seems like the product dries up on the pads but you realize that there is a silky feeling as you swipe the pad on your face. The next morning, my skin is smooth and looks younger(at 54 that is a good thing!). I have only used them 2 or 3 times every other night but am loving what they are doing .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love it but.... Started out great, it was more like a dry oil, not greasy and absorbed into my skin. But I didn't pay attention to the directions and was going by reviews of trying to use it every day. On the 3rd day, I woke up to eye puffiness, redness and little bit of irritation around my eyes. So I stopped using it for two weeks. Max I can use is once a week. But overall it's a great product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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!!!!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from THE PADS!! UGH! I love the formula and it soaks in fast, but the pads. They are so thin and often roll up when I'm applying. Then within minutes of application i feel pad fibers left behind like I have something crawling on my face. UGH.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed Feelings The reason I say I have mixed feelings about this product is because when I first started using it my skin felt great. I loved how quickly the oil absorbed without leaving a greasy residue. My skin instantly felt softer smoother and healthier. However I have acne prone skin and after the first few weeks of use I noticed a definite increase in the amount of break outs I was having. So I would only recommend this product to people with clear skin that do not suffer from acne.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay but prefer the the original The up-dated formula is nice and does leave my skin feeling silky however, because it's so strong I only use it twice a week. The pads, as others have stated, are very thin and I would suggest the thicker pads from the original formula.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Long Time User I have been able to keep my oily, aging facial skin in tiptop shape thanks to my dermatologist and Philosophy. I am a long time user and have been using the Miracle Worker rejuvenating pads since there was an A.M. and P.M. version. I have no doubt that this new version of the pads will be equally or even more effective than the previous version. My only concern with this upgrade is that the pads are so thin, I find it difficult to keep them in my hand, or to keep them flat, when applying to my face. They are definitely saturated, which is a good thing, but I wish they were a little thicker for better handling.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Oily It's not what I expected. It is oily and does not absorb into the skin.
Date published: 2018-12-04
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Prefer Old Product Not only are the newer style application pads difficult to use but the product is not nearly as effective or pleasant to use as the prior formulation. Like many others, I hope you bring back the old formula and applicators.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wish I could love these I've used the original Anti-Wrinkle Miracle Worker Retinoid pads for over 10 years, and my skin looks wonderful for my age. I have good skin to begin with, but absolutely loved these pads. Sadly, they are no longer available; The new pads - Ultimate Miracle Worker which I am using now are not showing me that they are an improvement over the original. My face is really "wet" for at least 5-7 minutes after using and the pads are an entirely different material that doesn't hold up well while using. Different doesn't always mean better.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bring back the old version I’ve been a long time user of this product. Love the old version. Always saw a major difference in my skin. So disappointed with this new version! One of the best parts, was the textured pads. The new ones are flimsy, and hard to use. Not seeing the benefits on my skin anymore. Bring back the old version, please! Why change something that was so well loved????
Date published: 2018-01-15
Rated 2 out of 5 by from New formula I've been using the old formula for years, with great results. The new pads are so flimsy and not getting the results that I was getting. Why change something if it isn't broke...please bring the old one back!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not What I Thought Yes I am a Philosophy girl! I just received this product and have been using it for the past 10 days. First the PADs are very flimsy and small. Come on Philosophy-Please don't get cheap on pad quality. Next treatment is very oily. Also the directions are very poor. Yes it explained how to pour the oil over pads, spread over face, hands, & neck, but not when to put on your moisturizer. Do I let my face dry? Which takes forever! Also, there were no recommendations on what skin type this should be used. Not a FAN

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Just don’t see results I’ve used this product for about a month, five times a week. I see no results at all. Also, because the pads are so flimsy, I end up using two at a time. Disappointed because I’ve used P products since the 80’s. I’ve never been disappointed in a product until now.
