Review of Philosophy Miracle Worker Retinoid Pads by littlemj
Update 4/8/13: I don't pour the solution over the pads anymore, since it just seems to 'age' or dry out the product over time. I just pour the solution onto the single pad every night.. and just found out you can buy more pads here: http://www.essentialwholesale.com/Toner-Pads. This should totally extend the useage of this product and make it more cost effective! :D
ORIGINAL REVIEW: NC25, Chinese acne prone, mid 30s, desert climate.
I tried hard not to like these, but the first time a year ago.. I liked it so much, I bought 2 more backups. Then I played around w/ a ton of skincare ... swapped 1 backup away, and then finally a year later, reintro myself to my last backup. I am in love again.
And there is something good here.. my skin is calm, acts like an exfoliator, and I'm pleased to see whatever residue left from even after oil/double cleanse, the pads are picking up the rest. I can't say w/ certainty it diminishes acne, but it certainly does not break me out. The greatest improvement is skin tone in general. I may try MUAC peels again, but I'm convinced this is a great day to day activity for my skin. At the next Sephora F&F, I am planning to stock. At basically $1/day, it seems insane.. but if I think $365 / year, then it doesn't seem insane considering the amts I spend on other face and makeup products.
