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

                I bought the full sized product but took some sample size tubes with me on a work trip this past week. I was really disappointed that each night I tried it I would wake up with 'little pimples on my face. This was the only new item in my routine. I'm disappointed as I was told it could help with scaring and instead I've got a few more blotch spots to clear up.

                          When I started using the product it seemed fine. Before I finished the bottle my skin become very sensitive to the serum. One morning after applying the serum my skin felt extremely warm and flushed. i didn't use that night since my skin was still red and very warm. The next day my skin was still flushed, warm and I noticed my skin was very dry and starting to peel. It has taken a few weeks and the peeling has stopped however my skin still feels warm and dry. Going back to When Hope Is Not Enough serum. Very sorry I switched to this stuff. Be careful of this product!!! I love all of the other products I have used for years. This one was a big miss for me.

                            Does this replace a moisturizer? I use Roc moisturizer every day and night. Would I apply the moisturizer first and then this?

                              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.
