      Comments about Philosophy Help Me:

      I use this cream for anti-acne. If you have sensitive skin, however, you might want to use it 3x a week only. I find that if I use it more than that it strips the top layer of my skin. Also, be aware that it is a retinol and should only be used at night or w/ sunscreen during the day.

        Comments about Philosophy Help Me:

        I have struggled with moderate acne since I was 12 years old (8 years ago) and this is the only thing that truly made a difference in my skin. within two weeks I noticed my skin started to clear up. My skin isn't 100% clear, BUT it is so much better than before. I have sensitive skin and this doesn't bother my skin at all. I use it every night as a moisturize because it doesn't dry out my skin and actually hydrates it! As for a cleanser I just use the regular dove beauty bar.

          Love this product. Is great for "aging" skin. Might irritate your skin, it doesn't mine and I use it every night.I have sensitive skin, but it doesn't bother me at all. Love it. It's a little pricey, but worth every penny.

                Comments about Philosophy Help Me:

                I decided to try this after reading numerous positive reviews and researching it myself. I have started experiencing hyperpigmentation and fine lines at 40 years of age. I used an entire tube and did not notice a difference at all. This was not the miracle product I was hoping for. So my search for the holy grail continues!
