Take control of the way your skin ages with Philosophy's breakthrough Time in a Bottle 100% In-Control Resist Renew Repair Serum that works through the 3 dimensions of time-past, present and future-to reveal stronger, younger-looking skin. First, an exclusive liposome complex stimulates skin's natural repair functions to help repair skin damage at its source. Next, potent vitamin C8 and a patented antioxidant complex neutralize damaging free radicals to help renew skin's protection from daily aggressors; and third, extracts from rare Himalayan red rice, red grape ferment and plantain leaf help reactivate skin's natural age-resisting mechanisms, for results you can see and feel.

Yesterday: 88% of women showed significant improvement in lines, wrinkles, texture and tone*; 100% of women showed a dramatic clinical improvement in firmness**
Today: Skin feels protected from daily damage** skin looks more radiant* and youthful with improved bounce**
Tomorrow: Skin feels stronger, more resilient and more able to fight off the effects of age damage**

*8-week results from an independent clinical study with 117 women aged 25-55
**8-week results from a cutometer and self-assessment study with 42 women aged 35-60

    Comments about Philosophy Time in a Bottle 100% In-Control Resist Renew Repair Serum:

    As the title indicates, I have no real reason for liking it, but I do. Lol I'm a skin care junkie, big time. I planned to use this as my primary night cream, but was shocked to see it's not a moisturizer AT ALL. It goes on like gel type water, but has no moisturizing effects, for me at least. I consider it like putting vitamins on my skin, and continue to use it, but don't see a difference yet. I doubt I would buy it again, because it's pricey and doesn't moisturize, but it smells nice and based on the ingredients I think it's good for my skin.

                      Your moisturizer should be chosen based on your skin care needs that you wish to address, however, The Time In A Bottle serum is compatible with all moisturizers.

                  • Q:

                    What is the difference between this serum and When Hope is not Enough Serum? It's not quite clear which serum is recommended for what age group/concern. I'm 37 yo trying to stay on top of aging with combo skin that has an occasional blemish.

                      We would recommend using the Time in a Bottle 100% In-Control Resist Renew Repair Serum because it contains an all in one blend to help to improve texture, radiance, lines and wrinkles, and firmness

                  • Q:

                    Can I use this if I'm using "Help Me" (the retinol cream?) How would it interact?
                    Thanks.

                      A:

                      No, it is not recommended to use the Time In A Bottle Serum with the Help Me Retinol treatment. Due to the Vitamin C and Retinol combination in the Help Me and then adding the Time In A Bottle, which contains Vitamin C, may cause an irritation. However, you can use the Time In A Bottle Serum in the morning.

                      A:

                      No, the Time in a Bottle Serum is made to be used in conjunction with a daily moisturizer. After cleansing your face, allow to dry, you would then apply the serum, allow to dry and then apply your moisturizer. This regimen is for both day and night.
