Great results. Bad smell.

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.

This serum seems to make a big difference in my skin. I ran out for about a week and definitely notice when I am not using it.

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

I love the way my face looks after using this for a few weeks. I use prescription retinoids every other day and need products without vitamin A for the rest of the days. I'm so glad the ULTA consultant helped me find this!

would not buy

By queen

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

For all users of hope is enough -
The original formula has changed. The philosophy site shows a completely different list of ingredients!!!!
Chapparal has been removed .
I believe this happened when Coty bought the line. The serum just sits on my skin and takes longer to absorb. No longer feel that my skin is tight after I apply. it is really too bad the formula changed.
After 8 years, I had to let it go.
