Finally something that moisturizes without causing acne!

By Amers

from Everett, WA

Comments about Philosophy When Hope Is Not Enough Firming and Lifting Serum:

I have been searching for something that would help provide the moisture my skin needs without causing me to break out - this is it! I was VERY skeptical as my skin doesn't seem to like many products and just tried one that unknowingly had salicylic acid in it (I break out bad from that stuff). Since using the Hope line (face wash, serum and moisturizer) my skin feels great, I'm not breaking out and I'm optimistic this will continue to work.

When Hope Is Not Enough Firming and Lifting Serum

Comments about Philosophy When Hope Is Not Enough Firming and Lifting Serum:

I have used many face serums since turning 60 (I am now 69) but this is the best serum product yet. It has evened out my skin tone, taken away red blotches, healed a deep whitehead that I had had for years and couldn't get rid of. Other products would give me a new pimple every other day or so (???); this product does not. I use this and then a moisturizer AM and PM. I, also, cleanse my face with Purity, another Philosophy product. I highly recommend this serum.

My favorite serum

Comments about Philosophy When Hope Is Not Enough Firming and Lifting Serum:

This is my favorite facial serum. I feel it helps tighten that melty face that comes with age. I always feel I look younger when I used his product regularly.

Great results. Bad smell.

By SinisterDoll

from Los Angeles

Verified Reviewer

Comments about Philosophy When Hope Is Not Enough Firming and Lifting Serum:

The product itself leaves my skin softer and actually brighter looking. The smell however is terrible! I hold my breath while i apply it. It's a bit sticky but quickly absorbed and the smell dissipates within a minute or so. It would be nice if something could be done about that god awful scent but in the meantime the results are worth it.

Use it to firm up my skin and it appears to make me look younger than my age. Who wouldn't want that?

Comments about Philosophy When Hope Is Not Enough Firming and Lifting Serum:

This is my second bottle. I have been using now for a couple of months and love it. I also use Philosophy brand moisturizers, so the combination works great for me. A little bit goes a long way.... I apply morning and evening on clean face. Within a week, I noticed skin was dewy, clearer, smooth, fine wrinkles dissipated. Definitely a must in my skincare routine.
