Final Review - Philosophy Miracle Worker Neck and Decollete Cream

Final Philosophy Miracle Worker Neck and Decollete Cream Review

I have now finished my tube of Philosophy Miracle Worker Neck and Decollete Cream and would like to give my final thoughts. (You can see my previous 2 posts on this cream for a initial review and a mid way through review)

I was so hoping for the best because I really do like the Philosophy Brand and really do think that they make some great products! Unfortunately, I did not see enough of a result to repurchase the product. I was thinking that I would see some change, due to the fact that I am at that age where I am just beginning to need a product like this. I was trying to be proactive to stop the advancement by starting early. I strongly believe in starting early.

I still believe that there is something out there for me. I am going to do some more research and get back to you. I do like the StriVectin-TL Tightening Neck Cream but I am searching for a cream that addresses the Neck and Decollete. I also want to find a cream with a Retinol in in. And yes the Philosophy did have a Retinyl Palmitate in it. But the ingredient was listed so far down the ingredients list that it makes it worthless to me. If I am looking for a particular ingredient in a product and it is not listed within the first 10 ingredients, than I don't want it! If I can't find one with it listed first, than I would rather get a Rx for Retinol. Than I would put that on my neck and decollete with a nice cream to go along with it.

Philosophy Miracle Worker Neck and Decollete Cream One Month Update

So as Promised, here is my update for the Philosophy Miracle Worker Neck and Decollete Cream.  

I have now been using the cream twice a day (morning and night) for 35 days. I successfully added it into my morning and evening since care regimen. But sadly I see little to no results. The main benefit from the cream that I was hoping to see was a more firmer looking and feeling Neck. My Decollete is not as much of a concern for me at this time. But I still am being proactive so it does not become a concern. Although I will not be repurchasing the cream, it did do some of the things it claims to do.  I will explain below:

 - To help improve the appearance of wrinkles on the neck and décolleté.

(I needed the least amount of help in this area, since I only have fine lines starting to show on my neck and none on my décolleté, I saw no change at all)

 - To help support natural collage and elasticity for firmer-looking skin.

(The Product does contain some form of Vitamin A. It Contains Retinyl Palmitate which is a form of Vitamin A. It is combination of pure retinol and palmitic acid. So perhaps it is slowly supporting my natural collagen growth but my Neck and Decollete did not look or feel firmer.)

- To help brighten and even skin tone for a candlelit finish.

(The Product does leave a nice candlelit finish as it describes. But I could also obtain this by using a illuminating moisturizer, or highlighting the area with a powder.)

- To deeply hydrate and help maximize skin's ability to retain moisture for smoother-looking skin.

(The Cream did hydrate nicely but so does my Face Cream.)

I have decided that I am going to finish up the tube as I want to give it the full chance to give it a fair review. I also feel that the Vitamin A that it contains can be an extra bonus to my skin care routine since I am not using it anywhere else and probably should be. I will do my final update, once I am fully done with the tube. It should be within the next two weeks. I have also attached a picture of my neck when I started the product and one current.

A bit of a difference, but not much.
