        Use this everyday. I am new to the Philosophy skin care line. My daughter gave this to me as a gift. Sat on my shelf for a few weeks after the holiday. Finally decided to try it out, I was so amazed! This product made a huge difference in my skin tone and appearance. Now it is a permanent part of my daily routine. Since then I have purchased a second bottle. Use every morning and the night time version of this product at night.

                  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
