I'll second that cutting them in half 'works' in that you can get a good amount of the product on and exfoliate enough with half a pad. However, I went through the dark spot corrector in way less than a month and I only used 1 pump per day. It didn't seem like they give you enough, and I didn't see any difference after using it all.

Supposedly only 30, as they provide 30 pads. But a cost-saving trick I use is to cut those pads in half before adding the liquid. Then you get 60 days worth of pads (1/2 of a pad should be more than enough for your face and neck). There's quite a bit of the spot corrector--I still had left over when the pads were gone. I only use about 1, maybe 1.5 pumps per application.

It last 30 days. I say this because you get 30 pads and you use one nightly. The dark spot corrector may last a little longer because you can use 1-2 pumps. using 1 pump will extend the life of your corrector.

The Sephora rep told me that it's a 30-day supply, if used once a day - preferably at night. Hope that helps!

Why are you charging $80 for $66 worth of products?
The 1 oz. Miracle Worker Dark Spot Corrector sells for $62 and the 2 oz. Miracle Worker Miraculous Anti-Aging Retinoid Solution and 60 Pads Miraculous Anti-Aging Retinoid Treatment sell for $70, for a total of $132 if bought separately. Why are you charging $80 for half the amount of each product?

dropping nearly twice as much money for both of the full size products isn't exactly an option for some...i knew i was paying extra money for this set and that it isn't a "value" set, but i didn't have $150 at the time to buy full size versions. (yes, i know i could get my money refunded if i didn't like the products since sephora has an excellent return policy...) turns out i'm returning this set anyway since it burned my face--i broke out in tiny red bumps all over even though i used spf 40 lotion when i was outside. it took me over a week to heal...

OK, since you've used it I have another question. I have a brown spot on my cheek from what I assume is too much sun/tanning bed exposure. (I know, both are very bad for me but I like a tan.) Will these products get rid of the spot or are they more of an overall skin lightener?

Because I'm sure they market tested it with consumers and found that people will pay it, and from a business standpoint, product pricing doesn't really always work that way. Plus, you get the convenience of trying two products that you aren't sure about in sizes that are big enough to really see if they will work for you. I bought it, and its definitely worth $80.

Yes, I've just added this system to my nightly regimen. So I wash my face first, then swipe the Miraculous Anti-Aging Retinoid Treatment pads over my face (I followed the directions and already poured all the Retinoid over all the pads), and then put the Miracle Worker Dark Spot Corrector on my face on top of that. That's it. I've been using it for 1.5 weeks now. Good luck! This works WONDERS for me, so I hope it does for you too.

You should use it on clean, dry skin. I wash my face with Purity and then I use an alcohol-free toner before using this product.

Do I still need a night time moisturizer?
I am 60 years old but still have somewhat oily skin. After using the pads & Dark Spot Corrector my skin feels great. Do I still need to put a night time moisturizer over it?

I'm 51 and have been using the dark spot kit. After swiping the pad and applying the dark spot corrector I use Philosophy's "When Hope is Not Enough" night cream. I scoop out about a dime size ball and rub it in my hands to heat up and emulsify the cream. Then press it into my skin where needed. I do my whole face and chest, but you may want to avoid the t-zone if that's where you're oily. Good Luck!

the system is hydroquinone free. it works using a skin brightener plus a retinoid, which is the way that dermatologists typically treat dark spots.

Are you supposed to use a mosturizer and eye cream (as I normally do at night) after applying the retinoid pads and dark spot corrector?
Or do I just let them sink in to my skin over night and then wash and moisturize in the morning?

I would definitely continue using your moisturizer and eye cream. This tends to dry out the skin.

Use the pads and the dark spot corrector first and then add any other moisture products after. I have seen great results after just 2 weeks.

The kit box as well as the product labels themselves provide the instructions for use. One retinoid pad is used in the morning, another retinoid pad is used in the evening, and then only in the evening, the pad is followed by one or two pumps of the dark spot correcting fluid.

You swipe the pads over your face neck and back of hands, then apply the dark spot correcting serum to your face or to troubled areas on the face. If your face gets to sensitive back off a little.
