Philosophy Miracle Worker Miraculous Anti-Aging Moisturizer Review

Anti-Aging, Wrinkle-Fighting Miracle or just Devilishly Expensive?

miracle-worker-moisturizer Are you still on the hunt for a great moisturizer that fights the signs of aging without breaking you out or causing your face to look like an oil slick?

Philosophy’s Miracle Worker Anti-Aging Moisturizer may be just what you’re looking for

This product can be purchased individually or you can also get it in a kit called the Box of Miracles. Frankly, the box is the better deal, but we’ll talk about that in just a bit.

For now, let’s take a look at what Philosophy says that their moisturizer will do for you, what’s actually in it, and what real users are saying about it. Then you can decide for yourself!

What Do They Claim?

The way that Philosophy sells this cream is a little odd. Instead of touting the wrinkle-fighting ability and shouting about how you’re going to look a million years younger (like other creams do), they approach it a bit differently.

They say that their product contains a “unique complex” (I really dislike that phrase) that replenishes your skin’s natural moisture. Vitamin C and glutathione help stimulate collagen production and make your complexion bright and fresh. Finally, the antioxidants soothe your skin and protect you from the damaging effects of free radicals in your environment.

The coup de grace is that it does all of this without causing irritation and works for all skin types, at least according to them. Hmm. If it really does all of that, then it truly IS a Miracle Worker!

What’s In It?

The ingredients list for this moisturizer is comparatively short. It starts with a few stabilizers and viscosity-increasing agents then the sixth ingredient is ascorbyl glucoside, aka a light-stable form of vitamin C that acts as a powerful antioxidant and is conducive to collagen synthesis. Glutathione, another collagen stimulator (and pigment inhibitor), is listed a few ingredients later, so there’s part of Philosophy’s claim supported. Tetrapeptide 21 and cetylhydroxyproline palmitamide, two more active participants in collagen production, are surprise bonus ingredients.

Resveratrol and several other herbal antioxidants, skin conditioners, and soothers are listed prominently throughout the list, too. Just according to the ingredients list, the only thing really missing is retinol, but Philosophy recommends that you use this product with their Retinoid Pads at night.

This is actually good because retinol (and many forms of vitamin C) break down in sunlight, so they’re basically useless in day creams. This way, you can get the anti-aging benefits of this cream day AND night and don’t need to waste money or counter space on a separate day cream.

As a side note, there are several parabens and other “iffy” ingredients in the product.

What Are Users Saying?

Categorically, users love this moisturizer. These are the most common comments:

  • Softer, less “crepey” skin
  • Diminished age spots or sun spots
  • Improved wrinkles and diminished fine lines
  • Brighter, younger-looking complexion
  • More even skin tone
  • No scent

About the only issue that a couple of people had were with the texture. They said that it didn’t absorb and felt greasy, even an hour after application. To be fair, regular users of Philosophy products commented that the trick to getting their products to absorb is to use a very small amount and rub it between your fingers first. This will help keep you from putting a blob of it down in one spot.

Final Word

My only bone with this product is that it doesn’t have retinol in it, so therefore I would recommend it for use as a day cream. If you’re using it as your night cream, I’d definitely use it with the Miracle Worker Retinol Pads as Philosophy recommends. You can buy them separately, or if you’d like to buy them in a kit, you can just click here to learn about the kit; it’s called Miracle in a Box.
