What’s one of the most depressing words in the dictionary? “Ageing”. Yup. I’m not even 22 yet and I’ve started to notice fine lines under my eyes. Oh the horror! But I’m not panicking because Philosophy’s new Ultimate Miracle Worker range might be just the miracle I need. From emulsions to creams to serum-in-creams, this range has got me covered!
Our hectic lifestyles and exposure to environmental aggressions has caused our skin to age faster. As such, it’s crucial to start taking steps to delay the signs of ageing. I was recently given the opportunity to test out Philosophy’s Ultimate Miracle Worker range, and here are my thoughts. Please note that I did not receive any compensation for this review and none of the links in this post are affiliated links. So, I was beyond excited to try the products as I’m a big fan of Philosophy’s Hope In A Jar line. I must admit, as I’m still young and certainly not the age group this range is targeted at, so I may not be the best judge of this skincare range. Nevertheless, I put the products to the test and I’m very much in love with them.
Ultimate Miracle Worker Multi Rejuvenating Emulsion Broad Spectrum Spf 25
The first being the Ultimate Miracle Worker Multi Rejuvenating Emulsion Broad Spectrum Spf 25 ($100 SGD). I found the emulsion to be more suitable for normal/oily skin skintypes as it’s extremely lightweight. If you are in an air-conditioned room every day or have dry skin, this might not be moisturizing enough for you. When applied on my skin, it was absorbed almost immediately and my skin was left without any greasy residue. I appreciate how the packaging comes with a pump, thus the product is not exposed to the air. It has a mild fragrance, like all the products in the Ultimate Miracle Worker range. The scent is nothing too overpowering and doesn’t linger for too long after application.
Ultimate Miracle Worker Multi Rejuvenating Cream Broad Spectrum Spf 25
Next up, we have the Ultimate Miracle Worker Multi Rejuvenating Cream Broad Spectrum Spf 25 ($100 SGD) which I have been using in the mornings. It’s packaged in an old school glass jar, but I would have preferred if it came in a bottle packaging. Products in jars have a shorter life span as the ingredients don’t stay effective for long after the package is opened. This is the only downside I’ve to this product. This day cream works effectively at making my skin feel hydrated and makeup goes on easily on top. I love the light moisturizing effects of it. In addition, it contains SPF protection against a wide spectrum of UVA, UVB and infrared rays. Did you know that sitting in front of your computer can cause your skin to age as well??!! Yes, those nasty radiation from your computer can be damaging to your skin!
Ultimate Miracle Worker Eye Multi Rejuvenating Eye Cream Broad Spectrum Spf 15
The Ultimate Miracle Worker Eye Multi Rejuvenating Eye Cream Broad Spectrum Spf 15 ($90 SGD) contains patented technology that targets lines, wrinkles and firmness, as well as dark circles and puffiness, while keeping the skin hydrated and protected from the sun rays. It’s my favourite eye cream of the moment and I love how it’s easily absorbed into the skin while simultaneously hydrating the eye area. It contains SPF 15 so I prefer to use this eye cream during the day. But as I always say, do not rely on your skincare to provide the SPF protection. Always always use a separate sunblock!
Ultimate Miracle Worker Night Multi-rejuvenating Nighttime Serum In Cream
The Ultimate Miracle Worker Night Multi-rejuvenating Nighttime Serum In Cream ($120 SGD) is the best in the entire range. It combines the concentrated power of a serum with the nourishing benefits of a cream to create a youthful-looking appearance. The cream comes with the serum sealed in a packet as well as a spatula. It’s sealed to ensure maximum freshness of the pearl. 🙂
When you are ready to use, simply open the sealed pearl packet and pour into the cream.
Stir and allow approximately 5 minutes for the pearls to melt. Then stir until fully mixed. Once the pearls are no longer visible, the cream is ready to be applied to a clean, dry face.
I tried this serum in cream for two weeks in a row, applying it only at night, and I really liked the results. After using it, I wake up with my skin feeling more supple, smoother and more radiant. If you’ve oily skin, you may find this cream a little too rich so but my dry skin loves it! I have noticed that a little goes a long way so you won’t run out of this anytime soon. This product contains retinol so I’d exercise caution when using it, such as avoiding the sun when using retinol products. Well, good thing this is a night cream isn’t it?
Overall I was impressed with Philosophy’s Ultimate Miracle Worker range. While it’s on the pricey side, the products are super luxurious and effective, making your money worth while. I believe that with extended use of these products, I’ll have less wrinkles and fine lines! For those of you looking to start an anti-ageing regimen, this is a great introduction to the world of anti-ageing products. It’s always better to start taking good care of your skin early, your skin will thank you. 🙂
