Time in a Bottle Age-Defying Serum

Item #: 2267852 Size: 1.3 oz

Your #1 step in any age-preventing or age-correcting routine. At last time is on your side. Transform your skin inside and out at any age by targeting the key signs of aging and help improve: radiance, pores, evenness, lines & wrinkles and smoothness.

Time In A Bottle works two ways: on the inside: it targets the source of key signs of aging even before they appear on the skin's surface. On the outside: it is remarkably effective in correcting the look of visible skin aging. What makes it unique: unlike other serums, Time In A Bottle goes beyond just treating the signs of aging and targets the source: your skin's DNA.

Key Benefits:

  • DNA renewal complex helps promote skin's natural renewal and protection processes
  • High-potency vitamin C8 activator works in synergy to help protect against skin-aging environmental aggressors.
  • Fresh-pour system triggers the highest level of activity and potency, by mixing the serum and activator prior to first use.

      Comments about Philosophy Time in a Bottle Age-Defying Serum:

      I love philosophy products but this one was a huge miss for me. It made my skin feel greasy, and didn't give me any results. If I used it in the morning before makeup it would get 'pilly' and i already have a night serum that I like much better. Bummer

                  Waste of money. It did not brighten my skin. It did not even my skin tone. The first week I just wore it at night. After no results I started applying it in the morning. It ended up clogging my pores causing a major breakout. The stuff just sits on your skin. Don't rub your face after applying it because it will peel off.

                          Love this product! Even clears up the occasional blemish after just one use. A little pricey but it lasts a long time when using just one squirt per night and is worth the money.
