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

              I have been desperately searching for a serum to help my aging skin. This stuff is awesome! I have used it for a week and my skin looks brighter and younger. No irritation. The smell is a bit weird but goes away almost immediately.

              I have also been using this on my cleavage where I have developed a few deep wrinkles and I have seen improvement. I'm so happy I tried this... I will like experiment with some of their other products.

              Finally something that moisturizes without causing acne!

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

              I have been searching for something that would help provide the moisture my skin needs without causing me to break out - this is it! I was VERY skeptical as my skin doesn't seem to like many products and just tried one that unknowingly had salicylic acid in it (I break out bad from that stuff). Since using the Hope line (face wash, serum and moisturizer) my skin feels great, I'm not breaking out and I'm optimistic this will continue to work.

              When Hope Is Not Enough Firming and Lifting Serum

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

              I have used many face serums since turning 60 (I am now 69) but this is the best serum product yet. It has evened out my skin tone, taken away red blotches, healed a deep whitehead that I had had for years and couldn't get rid of. Other products would give me a new pimple every other day or so (???); this product does not. I use this and then a moisturizer AM and PM. I, also, cleanse my face with Purity, another Philosophy product. I highly recommend this serum.

              This is my favorite facial serum. I feel it helps tighten that melty face that comes with age. I always feel I look younger when I used his product regularly.
