I was pretty damn excited when I saw the new Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Dark Spot Correcting Serum ($42) launch at Ulta.com because I was such a massive fan of Philosophy’s old Miracle Worker Dark Spot Corrector which is long since gone!
It’s really nice to see it return in some variation! The new formula promises to improve discolorations and even out skin tone with a brightening “daisy flower complex”. I guess daisies contain alcohol because the second ingredient in this formula is alcohol. Damn. What a shame! The original also contains alcohol but behenyl alcohol which is a good ingredient.
I was really hopeful this would be a return of the old version in new packaging but I guess not!
Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Dark Spot Correcting Serum is $42 and available now but not sure I’ll be indulging!
