      Apply morning and evening after cleansing face. I do not need moisterizer after using this serum and my face is never dry. I do apply eye cream.
      Only thing negative is that I seem to go through the bottle quickly.

      Brings back youthful, healthy skin tone

        • Sensitive Skin
        • Uneven Skin Tone

        Comments about Philosophy Time In A Bottle:

        I don't like wearing foundations or powders on my face. They irritate my skin and I don't like the heavy feel, but the aging appearance of my skin tone was beginning to bother me. Wearing uncomfortable,irritating foundations/powders wasn't a solution for me. I'm happy to say my skin tone is regressing back to it's youthful, healthy appearance after adding Time in a Bottle to my daily skin care regimen.

        I've started applying Time in a Bottle every morning, right after I exfoliate & wash my face, and before using Philosophy's Miracle Worker retinoid solution & moisturizers. After just a few days of adding Time in a Bottle to my regular skin care regimen, I noticed a difference in my skin tone. It was appearing to have a healthier color. Warm & pink, rather than pasty & pale. My skin tone was becoming more even, less blotchy and age spots were fading.

        After the positive results I was seeing on my face, I started using Time in a Bottle on my hands, arms, legs, areas where I sunburn easily and/or that are frequently exposed to the sun. I've noticed my skin tone evening out & glowing everywhere I'm using it.

        If you're seeking a youthful, glowing, even skin tone, then experiment with Time in a Bottle. It's is working for me.

            Product did not deliver anything special other than my face was very smooth and foundation went on very nicely. I could have gotten the same results from a makeup primer at a fraction of the cost. I will not buy again.

            Skin feels good, smooth, soft. No irritation. Granted I don't have the infrared that they advertise to show how the product works over time, but I can see lines diminish and tone even out. Takes about 4 weeks before you see the resutls, and continue to see them thereafter. I wish it wasn't so expensive!! I guess you get what you pay for, I've tried drug store brands, and by far this one is my fave!! This one I can actually feel and see working!

              This made a nice difference in my lines and sun damaged spots. I've gone through 2 bottles, it gets better and better with time. It absorbs quickly into my skin, with no stickiness at all. The packaging feels nice and luxe, also air tight which protects the antioxidents.

                    Is it good enough to use it on its own or applying a moisturizer on top of it is still needed?

                      time in a bottle daily age-defying serum does not offer any hydration. we recommend applying your moisturizer of choice to ensure you are well hydrated throughout your day.

                  • Q:

                    I would like to try this product, however, I have very sensitive skin that is rosacea prone. Can you please provide some feedback on whether this product would be 'safe' to use (that is, not inducing a rosacea flare up).
                    Thank you in advance.

                      A:

                      because rosacea is a diagnosed skin condition, we always recommend that you check with your physician before using any new products.

                    Im using a skin clearing neutrogena foundation over my moisturizer in the morning. I like the foundation. It does not have SPF but prevents breakouts.
                    How can i incorporate this time in a bottle product with my current product?

                      A:

                      The order of application would be: Time in a Bottle, your moisturizer, and then your foundation. Time in a Bottle serves as your treatment serum that provides antioxidant protection against the signs of aging. It can be used daily and/or nightly underneath your moisturizer.

                      A:

                      Time In A Bottle is an antioxidant & DNA complex high performance serum that does not contain any exfoliation ingredients. Our protocol is to use Time In A Bottle in the morning underneath your preferred Philosophy sunscreen and at night use one of Philosophy's High Performance (HPR) Retinoids. That said, while using any prescription medications or topical creams, we recommend to ask your doctor.

                      A:

                      This serum is formulated to address advanced signs of aging and is ideal to treat wrinkles, loss of firmness, and uneven skin tone. The high-potency vitamin C8 activator targets discoloration and will help to fade any age spots for a brightened complexion.

                  • Q:

                    Why isn't this product just the high potency serum instead of having to mix it with the "lotion" it seems the little bottle of intense ingredients would be easier to use and would produce results sooner. Is it since it is so expensive customers want more product for their money?

                      A:

                      Philosophy designed the Fresh Pour System because it allows for the highest level of potency and efficacy by activating product before the first use by pouring the Vitamin C8 into the DNA Renewal Complex. The "lotion" part contains the key technology of the DNA Repair enzymes; this helps erase the signs of aging below the surface and also help to minimize the appearance of dullness, enlarged pores, uneven texture lines, wrinkles and loss of firmness. The Vitamin C8 in the Fresh Pour System helps to provide maximum protection against environmental assaults (smog, pollution, etc.). The Fresh Pour System ensures product efficacy each and every time.
