I use this daily in the a.m. with the vitamin C powder and use the save me, help me, and hope in a jar with and hope is not enough in the p.m. I am 32 and I've had several compliments on my skin by friends I haven't seen in a while. Since I use with the C powder, I do experience slight tingling, but it never irritates my combinations oily skin. Overall, I am quite pleased with this product and the rest of the philosophy line. I have used others, Aveeno, Remede, etc. but will stick with philosophy for the ease of use, the price and of course, the results!

I used this product as directed and saw no results at all. I have used and liked other Philosophy products but this one was a waste of money.

      • Nightly Use

      Comments about philosophy when hope is not enough, a.m. firming serum, 1 oz:

      On the quest for my perfect serum, I came across this product. After about three months of daily and nightly use, I can say that it is definitely not my favorite. As a person with very dry skin, this definitely moisturizes, so much so that it's excessive for me to use a moisturizer on top of it. I only use about 3-4 drops on my whole face. This serum is so heavy on me that I don't like using it in the daytime under my foundation. It's great for nightly use though; it keeps my face moisturized the entire night. I won't settle for a heavy serum, especially at this high price.

              I use this product twice a day after cleansing my face and before any other moisturizer. I've used this for 4yrs. and feel sure that it has helped maintain the firmness of my skin as I age. I get comments all the time about my skin looking so great at age 65.

                Comments about philosophy when hope is not enough, a.m. firming serum, 1 oz:

                This product came to me as a sample. I have used *every* expensive skin care system. I started putting a thin layer of this on over all of my usual evening products, thinking little about it. I then started to notice that I looked like I was rested and glowing after removing my makeup at the end of the night. This was the reason. It was the only thing I did differently - it has to be the reason - my skin looks radiant.

                    My skin is so incredibly DRY!! I've tried everything, but by the end of the day, my face looks so dry and wrinkled under my makeup, especially when I smile. This stuff is amazing!!! It added to hope in a jar for dry skin is the perfect remedy. My face finally looks moisturized all day! Thanks Philosophy!!!
