Anne Sullivan

With school back in session I thought it appropriate to give a shout out to one of history’s most successful teachers, Miss Anne Sullivan. Famous for teaching a young, deaf and blind Helen Keller to communicate and thus helping her to achieve greatness as a university graduate, activist, author and inspiration to many.

Their story was made famous in the play and film “The Miracle Worker.” If you haven’t seen either, allow me to suggest Kleenex as the product of choice for your viewing. If you have seen the play/film then we can move forward with today’s other recommended product.

Though not as life affirming as Ms. Sullivan and Ms Keller’s story, Philosophy has their very own “Miracle Worker” and it’s one helluva product. Philosophy’s Miracle Worker is an anti-ageing, retinoid eye treatment that helps reduce the look of under eye bags, smooths out the skin under your eye (so it looks less crepey) and helps cell turn-over to keep your eyes from giving away your age.

“The eyes are the windows to your soul, not your age.” – their quote from the bottle.

What I love about this product is its texture upon application.  It’s not a gel, it’s not a cream, it has a slightly petroleum jelly type feel but on a much lighter/thinner scale. It feels almost warm when you first put it on, which gives way to a nice, soothing feeling and when I wake up the next morning my eyes look really well rested. They say you can use it day and night though I have only used it in the evening, but I can easily see how it’s texture would make for a very easy makeup application. You need very little product and it sinks right in. For $65 I sincerely recommend it. I think it’s a winner!

Hope you like it!
