Right when I was ready to purchase another bottle, my friend and fellow blogette Christina at Carolina Charm tweeted that Ulta was giving away great freebies with any Philosophy purchase. Done!
I saw her tweet while gassing up my car and I literally changed my route and headed straight to Ulta. The freebie was the Miracle Worker trial set. These smaller-sized anti-aging products are valued at $72 but the trial set is available for $40 (here).
I'm not trying to be overdramatic, but I can truly say that this trio of products has completely changed my skin.
My normal skin type is what I guess you'd classify as normal with a smidge of a T-zone oil issue and some hormonal breakouts (love. ugh.). In the winter, it can get a little dry, especially on my temples. I never really thought I had an issue with large pores ... until I started using this system.
The pores on my nose have shrunken drastically -- and better yet, the pores on either side of my nose are almost nonexistant. Honest. My makeup is gliding over my skin much easier and having more of an "airbrushed" look.
I haven't been paying much attention to whether or not it's helping with smile lines and wrinkles, but probably because I can't stop staring at my nonexistant pores. And the smoothness of my skin. It's crazy. Someone get me away from the mirror!
To me, the retinoid pads are sized a little larger than I need, so I cut them in half. You use them all over your face and on the back of your hands. It's worth noting that I have used a dermatologist-prescribed retinol cream before, but these work better.
I know I tout the wonder of a lot of beauty products, but this is one I would put at the top of the list. GET IT. I wholeheartedly stand behind this trio!
