              When I first stated using Philosophy it was with When Hops Is Not Enough cream. So when the Serum came along I was so happy. Have had serum's years ago by Lancôme before they had to take them off the US market and only market them in Europe. I am very into healthy skin and keeping my skin moisturized and not overdoing it with unnecessary products. Philosophy's products are the best!! They target what is needed without clogging the pours of the skin with to much product. If you want to have skin touchable great looking skin, then this is your product.

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

              This serum actually firms your skin! It may only last until the next day when you apply it again but it does give you temporary results. Once applied, I feel my skin tightening and it looks less shaggy. It can be a little irritating as it has cause very small, barely noticeable pimples upon first use. But it does exactly what it says it does...even if temporary.

                              when hope is not enough firming and lifting serum should not fade freckles, however it will protect your skin from environmental damage.

                            I currently wash my face with the miracle cleaner, use the miracle retinoid pads (only at night) then use the time in a bottle face serum followed by time in a bottle eye serum and then miracle eye retinol eye repair and then end with miracle day or night moisturizer. Would I put this serum on last after moisturizing?

                              we recommend applying no reason to hide total skin tone correcting serum every evening, and when hope is not enough firming and lifting serum every morning. if you prefer to use both products each morning, apply the no reason to hide serum first, and the when hope is not enough serum second.

                              This product contains Sodium Hyaluronate, the sodium salt of Hyaluronic Acid, which has a lower molecular weight which means it penetrates into the skin more effectively to deeply hydrate the skin.
