          Comments about Philosophy When Hope Is Not Enough Night Nightly Restorative Serum:

          I love this serum! I cannot use many of the Philosophy products anymore due to sensitivities, but this serum has not irritated me in any way. I use this after cleansing and toning ( I still use a night cream on top of this before bed). It felt so light and smooth after the first use, and in the morning, my face seemed smoother. After a few days, the light creases in my face seemed more faint. I also feel it helps with my dark circles (I pat it under my eyes when applying over my face/neck) and some uneven spots are less noticeable. I am in my early thirties and have no wrinkles or crows feet like some of my friends do, and I feel this product is one of the reasons for that.
