the little white bumps are clogged pores. they will typically not go away even after i stop using whatever gave them to me. it takes about a week of very gentle careful massage with warm water twice a day for mine to go away after they arrive, but i have very dry sensitive skin. i would recommend a very light touch around the eyes in any case. the key is to get the pores to open and release the hardened oil/etc that is trapped there, so whatever works to open your pores, or whatever is typically recommended for clogged pores should work.

It sounds like you are developing milia, which can happen if you use a product that is too rich for your skin. A dermatologist can extract them using a small lancet; alternately, you can use a product with AHA in it (such as a toner or lotion) over the milia at night and you might see them disappear.

I've been told that the white bumps occur when the product your using is too heavy for the skin around your eye. I would talk to your dermatologist. I had white bumps and mine started to lesson with use of the product, but everyone's skin is different.

This eye cream is very rich. If you have oily skin, you might want to ask your eye doctor whether the white bumps are due to clogged pores.

I've had other products do the same thing to me and have found that trading them in for something else is usually the best bet. My guess is that this retinoid concentration might be too harsh for your skin and you might want to switch to something with just peptides or a smaller retinoid composition. Good luck!

answer 10
I get these bumps sometimes - they're little whiteheads that result for me from too much concealer and powder without properly cleaning the area regularly and consistently. I soak the area in a hot towel, squeeze them and let the resulting pink spots fade overnight.

White bumps mean clogged pores - might need to scrub gently the area to release dead skin layer - I'd lay off goo which is clogging the issue.

Do yourself a huge favor: find an old fashioned dermatologist (not one who pushes surgery and restylane injections) and request an anti-aging skin care regimen. The education you'll get with respect to ingredients, product applications, and what to expect in terms of reasonable results now and over time will be worth every penny.

It'll be slightly higher cost upfront, but *much* cheaper over time. You'll look and feel better and you won't live with the uncertainty and frustration of "will this work or won't it and by when, and what are the drawbacks in the meantime" (under eye bumps...).

It's called Milia....this cream might be a little to rich for your skin type so you might want to switch. Dermatologist can help you extract them bc it's protein build up under the skin and not inside of a pore. Hope this helpsQ

I believe it's okay to apply this product, which contains retinol, to the upper lids, but you want to do so carefully and slowly to allow your skin to adjust to it. I would recommend to only apply it once every three days at the start, for example. Retinol is irritating, and applying it to the upper lids every night might be *too* irritating, especially in the beginning.

Yes, though felt like it was a little intense for twice-daily applications on the upper lid.

My upper lids are droopy & I have not noticed any "lifting" effect - but I don't think anything short of cosmetic surgery will actually lift droopy lids. The cream DOES help w/"crows' feet" & undereye "crepe-paper" dryness. My eye area looks & feels a lot better since I started using this product.

answer 11
An eye cream should NEVER be applied on the eyelids unless it is a gel. If is a cream it can cause puffiness and irritation. Which if you read the reviews many experience (prob due to improper application) apply to the contour area only. The skin around the eye is the thinnest on the body so creams penetrate quickly and fast.

That sounds like a lot of eye products. I bet that if you do some research on them, you'll be able to find that one or two are the best ones for you. Each product is designed to fill a different need(s). That would also be easier on your wallet!

I don't find this to be especially moisturizing, yet it soaks in quickly on me and seems to get right to work on wrinkles and dark circles. So I use this first, then apply a slightly creamier eye cream on top (whatever your preference is, I use Bobbi Brown for this). The two products together have really made a difference!

Why do the precautions say not to use if pregnant or nursing?
Why do the precautions say not to use if pregnant or nursing? What is the reason for this precaution? What if you are trying to get pregnant, should you not use this product either? Does this warning apply to all products (not just Philosophy) that contain anti-aging ingredients?

Knowing what to use when you're expecting is tricky. I'd decrease the amount of products I use to a minimum and stick to all natural, organic type products. (Philosophy is NOT one of those!) Hope this helps

Products containing retinoids are contraindicated for women who are pregnant or nursing. Because this is an OTC cream, it probably wouldn't harm you or your unborn child - but why take the risk?

answer 4
Because the cost and liability of conducting product testing on a representative entity which contains an embryo in gestation are inestimable if not astronomical.

Think about it: manufacturer liability would expand to include 2 consumers, one of whom is embryonic, i.e., its basic organs and systems are absent or developing *because* of and depend solely on its attachment to the consumer who is carrying the fetus.

Frankly, pregnancy is an aberration in the life of the typical consumer. It is financially and scientifically correct then that pregnant women are excluded from this product's "typical" consumer base.

Retinoids can cause a variety of birth defects; however, when used topically in small areas the risk is believed to be very low if any. I would consult your doctor and bring in the product to be completely safe!

Likely because it contains retinoids, which are known teratogens and should NOT be used in pregnancy (or if someone is trying to get pregnant, since it could happen at any time!). No this doesn't apply to "all anti-aging products", since that refers to tons of ingredients that are each very different.

Is this a retinol? I bought the 3 pack miracle worker set a year ago and I think this formulation is different.
The product I bought a year ago was a white cream texture and this is more of a serum. So is it a retinol?

I've run into a problem with the Miracle Worker value set in that Philosophy switches up the products. The pads and moisterizer always seem to be the same, but I've gotten the serum (not for eyes) or the eye cream, and you can't tell from online what you're getting.
I love both the serum and the eye cream, but Philosophy should be consistent or offer a choice. If you're not sure what you got, you may be using the wrong product on your eyes.

My skin started to peel.
I've only been using it for three days. I really liked it at first. But now the skin under my eyes started to peel. And it's hard to apply makeup over it, it looks really bad and embarrassing. Not sure if I should continue using it. Is this normal?

I have read reviews where people have had the same problem as you. It's not normal & your eyes may be too sensitive for this product. It's ashamed because it's an awesome product. You may also be using too much product or you may need to apply a regular eye cream first (any would do) & then apply this one on top. When I first started using this, it was really irritating my eyes, making them super watery & I was having to rinse them out sometimes because my eyes were literally stingin, which is another problem a lot of other women have experienced. I almost returned the product but was hesitant because it worked so well. So, I did a simple thing, I started using less product & closing my eyes while applying it & I haven't had any problems since.
(I was so used to applying a lot more eye cream & always with my eyes open) Good luck
