      I love this serum! I recently tried something else and my face broke out. As soon as I went back to this, my face cleared up and looks great. I'm not looking for any miracles but I want something that smoothes lines and tightens my face a bit and this does the trick! It's really light and smells pretty good.

        Thus far ive used it for a week and its done a great job keeping my skin in balance, it does come with a smell, I would describe it as a natural smell, but overall a solid serum

            I use this product daily and have for several years. Works great under daily moisturizer. No smell and need only use a small amount so lasts for awhile

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

                I just recently purchased this product after being on the fence for a couple of months. I couldn't be happier that I did! I quit smoking after more than ten years last Spring, I have a very fair complexion with freckles, and I am beginning to show the first signs of wrinkles. My skin is pretty sensitive and I have struggled with frequent breakouts on my chin, cheeks, and forehead for the last four years.

                I should say that for two months before purchasing this serum I was using Hope in a Jar and Hope in a Jar Eye for two months. I was also using the Microdelivery Peel once a week and cleansing in the am with the Daily Exfoliating Cleanser and at night with Purity. While I had noticed some improvement I wanted to take it up a notch. I was most concerned about gaining some firmness back in my forehead and between my brows where I had started to notice some fine lines.

                OMG!! I have been using this product for almost two weeks now and it has done wonders for my face. For the first week I had a horrible breakout (purging I'm sure) and had to use some acne products as well as some New Zealand Rotorua Mud (look it up if you haven't tried it!) to clear it quickly. Since then the change has been drastic. My freckles are almost nonexistent, my skin is brighter and most of all my forehead and between my brow is firmer and the fine lines have almost disappeared. The other HUGE thing is that not only has the initial breakout cleared up, but I have not had ONE pimple since which is VERY unusal for me. I wish I would have started with this serum two months ago when I started using philosophy. I'm hooked!!

                  I noticed some comment on the smell but it is not 'bad' just not flowery or perfumed. I would rather not have the additional fragrant ingredients so suits me fine. I love it!
