Dissecting the $60 Eye Cream: Philosophy's The "Miracle Worker" Product Review

“It all depends on what’s important to you,” Emma, the wise Philosophy consultant, explains patiently as I jiggle up and down in my seat.

“Our new Miracle Worker Miraculous Anti-Aging Eye Cream really works on more mature skin that shows more advanced signs of aging than what you’re presenting.” Emma has a point; I’m no longer a teen, but I worry more of acne than aging.

She goes on to recommend a starter eye cream for me, Hope in a Tube. I stop and ask her if the new Miracle Worker eye cream is really off limits for me. After all, if it’s the latest thing in turning back the clock, using it now should prevent those advanced signs of aging the cream is supposed to treat, right?

Philosophy Miracle Worker Eye Cream
Rest assured, the most recent addition to the Miracle Worker family is the very top of the line when it comes to stopping time. The cream itself pulls the best features from each of the other products in its group. Like the Miraculous Anti-Aging Moisturizer, it contains propanediol, a moisturizer, and it shares the same proprietary blend of peptides with the Miraculous Anti-Aging Concentrate. I won’t bother you with the long names, but the peptides themselves help the skin produce its own collagen, which increases firmness.

The retinoid blend really steals the show, as it does in the Miraculous Anti-Aging Retinoid Pads. The eye cream contains the same retinoid, but blends it with retinol. The upshot: The cream has the wrinkle-banishing power of a retinol, but gentleness of the less-strident retinoid. That’s highlights of three facial products distilled into one eye cream.
Emma agrees that if I were really, truly distraught over the state of my under-eye skin, I would be perfectly fine to invest in the Miraculous Anti-Aging Eye Cream and pat away wrinkles to my heart’s content. I have a friend who’s of just such a mind. For the life of me, I can’t spot a flaw in her under-eye area, but she insists it’s a mess of wrinkles. Nothing is too great or too strong for her in her quest to better the crescents beneath her eyes.

The clinical data and the consumer perception both show overwhelming relief in terms of reducing both deep and fine wrinkles and restoring moisture and elasticity to the skin. As Emma says, it all depends . . . if you prioritize your eyes, Philosophy has the product that will help you do it.
The Miracle Worker Miraculous Anti-Aging Eye Cream retails for $60 at philosophy.com, but can also be found in Sephora, Nordstrom’s, and other specialty stores.
