              I had been using this product for about 6 months and didn't realize the difference it made because it was a gradual change. I ran out of this product so I was using another similar high end product. After about 3 weeks I looked in the mirror and couldn't believe how my face had changed for the worse. I immediately purchased another bottle. That will be the last time I run out if I can help it. Some people hate the smell, but it goes away and I'd deal with worse for the results it provides.

                I had given up on finding a firming serum that I could afford, but then I saw this product in a magazine article, and I am so glad I did! I use Philosophy When Hope is Not Enough Firming and Lifting Serum twice a day; I use it under my Olay SPF 30 moisturizer in the morning, and under Philosophy Help Me Retinol Night Treatment, followed by a night moisturizer. This serum is
                worth every penny! It is not greasy, and the firming properties really last all day. I am fast approaching the age of 60, andI have tried so many other serums that only give you a so-so firmer appearance for a short time, including some of the more expensive department store brands. I am a contented consumer and will continue to buy this Philosophy firming and lifting serum!

                            Have been using for about a month. No results that I can tell yet. Too costly to purchase again considering effectiveness.

                                This serum can be used both daily and nightly; Help Me should be used only nightly, because it contains retinol. Apply When Hope Is Not Enough first, followed by Help Me.

                                A:

                                This product contains Sodium Hyaluronate, the sodium salt of Hyaluronic Acid, which has a lower molecular weight which means it penetrates into the skin more effectively to deeply hydrate the skin.
