    Comments about Philosophy Time In A Bottle:

    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.

    Comments about Philosophy Time In A Bottle:

    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!

      Comments about Philosophy Time In A Bottle:

      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.

        I use it morning and night after washing face. You can use moisturizer & makeup over it. I had breakouts & scars, but this is making my skin look great.

            I saved the little bottle that you get that you have to add to the large bottle before your first use. I squirted a three day supply into the little bottle when I went on vacation, so I didn't risk anything happening to the big bottle. It worked perfectly!!!! I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!!!!!

              It applies smoothly. Too soon to tell if it will make any difference.

                I use this product twice a day, before I put on my tinted moisturizer in the am and before "Help Me" at night. It has a great feel and seems to leave my skin smoother than before I started using it.

                    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.

                  I am 65 years old. Is this product designed for older skin? Will it help to diminish age spots?

                    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.
