      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!

                  I use this product every night before bed. Best over the counter product I've ever used. It does exactly what it says. Use all over the face but I focus on the under eye area. I'm 40 and starting to get some fine lines. I've been using for about six months now and all fine lines are gone. Great product!

                    Comments about Philosophy Help Me:

                    I was definitely skeptical of trying this product, especially with the hefty price for such a small tube of cream. I used to be prescribed retinol cream & oral anti-biotics in high school for my severe acne. Of course the prescriptions made my face turn red and peel off completely but my acne disappeared. As I grew older, my acne became more manageable and I no longer needed the Rx, until recently. Instead of going back to my dermatologist, I tried other over-the-counter acne kits from drug stores and Ulta that used Hydroxy Acid or Salicylic Acid as the active acne fighting ingredient. Even after finishing the entire kits, none of them worked and just made my skin produce more oil to combat the acid treatments. So I caved and bought Philosophy Help Me night treatment. The results are AMAZING and worth every penny! In one use my face finally felt clean, my pores minimized and blemishes reduced. I hadn't seen these results since my Rx days. I did not experience any adverse reactions such as peeling or redness from the product. I must have built up some tough skin while using stronger retinol prescription products in the past. I've been using the product for 2 weeks now day & night and rarely get a blemish and my oil skin has calmed. I do recommend using a daily SPF moisturizer or sun screen when exposed to sunlight for long hours. Your face will burn extremely easy from using this product.
