                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.

                  Comments about Philosophy When Hope Is Not Enough Firming And Lifting Serum:

                  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!

                              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.

                              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.
