philosophy time in a bottle age-defying serum, 1.3 oz.
not for me
I was disappointed with this product as it left a film on my skin.I tried using less amount and that still didn't fix the problem ..it made my makeup look heavy and showed all wrinkles and lines were accented...sorry ...canceled my order
Made skin oily and pores larger
I purchased this product with great hopes that it would transform my skin for the better. That was not the case. I have combination skin with a slightly oily T-zone. I began using this product in June and after battling extremely oily skin all summer and watching my pore size grow (which were not enlarged when I began using this product) , I finally determined that it was this product that had made my skin look terrible. Prior to using this product I had a fairly even skin tone, minimal wrinkles for almost 50. Now, I look in the mirror and can see large pores in my T-zone, less radiant skin, and fine lines and wrinkles forming. I always wear SPF 50...so it is not from more sun damage. Once I quit using this product the over the top oily skin has calmed down and my pores are beginning to get smaller. This was a horrible product for me...love it the first month, all down hill after that.
SORRY I BOUGHT IT!
I HAVE BEEN USING A SERUM FOR CLOSE TO FIVE YEARS..DR.DENESE PRODUCT..AFTER HEARING SUCH UNBELIEVABLE RESULTS, I THOUGHT THAT I WOULD TRY IT AS MY SKIN IS ALWAYS GETTING COMPLIMENTS AND I AM 56. MOST OF MY SKIN CARE IS DR.DENESE PRODUCTS...I STARTED USING THIS SERUM JUNE 25 ..I KEPT THE DATE ON A PIECE OF PAPER SO I COULD KEEP TRACK OF THE RESULTS..WELL MY SKIN STARTED LOOKING STRANGE,VERY PATCHY,BROWN SPOTS BACK,AND I NOTICED AROUND MY MOUTH AND DOWN FROM TO MY CHIN MY WRINKLES WERE BACK! THE SKIN ABOVE MY LIPS...WRINKLES BACK AS IF I WERE A SMOKER...I STOPPED USING THIS SEPTEMBER 3 AND SENT IT BACK..VERY DISAPOINTED THAT I DID NOT GET ANY RESULTS AT ALL EXCEPT ALL MY HARD WORK AND GREAT SKIN ROUTINE WENT AWAY! ! WHY DO I STRAY AWAY FROM DR. DENESE WHEN I HAVE BEEN GETTING SUCH SUPER RESULTS? NO MORE TRYING NEW PRODUCTS... IF IT ISN'T BROKE....WHY FIX IT?..I WASTED OVER EIGHT WEEKS AND NOW I HAVE TO GET MY SKIN BACK IN SHAPE..EVEN MY DAUGHTER MADE A COMMENT ABOUT MY EYES AND TOP LIP.... 'MOM WHAT IS UP WITH YOUR SKIN?' I HAVE A FEELING MY SKIN JUST WAS NOT MADE FOR ALL OF THE PHILOSOPHY LINE AND I CAN ONLY SEE DIFFERENCE WITH THE MOISTURE CREAM AND THE EXFOLIATING SCRUB WITH THE WONDERFUL CITRUS SMELL..HAVE BEEN USING THAT FOR A LONG TIME AND LOVE IT..BUT AS FOR THESE OTHER PRODUCTS I AM MORE UPSET THAT MY SKIN WENT BACK IN TIME AND NOW I AM STARTING OVER AGAIN...SO HAPPY I KEPT ALL MY DR. DENESE PRODUCTS..OFF TO HEAL MY 'CRINKLEY' SKIN MY HUSBAND USED THAT WORD AND HE IS RIGHT! THAT IS HOW IT LOOKS!! SORRY PHILOSOPHY BUT MY SKIN JUST DIDN'T TAKE TO YOUR PRODUCTS THAT HELP SO MANY OTHERS...I WANTED 'TIME IN A BOTTLE ' TO WORK SO BAD! AND TO HAVE THE"UNBELIEVABLE RESULTS" ..... I WAS AT A POINT WHERE I TRULY WAS WEARING HARDLY ANY MAKE UP AND WENT INTO SUMMER WITH THE HOPE OF EVEN YOUNGER LOOKING SKIN..I KNOW I CAN GET IT BACK WITH MY OLD ROUTINE AND I HOPE IT IS QUICK!
I purchased this product a week ago and I was skeptical. I have combination skin which lately has been more oily with a few sunspots and very large pores. After nightly use for 7 days I see a visible and dramatic difference in my skin!! My pores are drastically smaller, my skin glows, and I look younger. I am truly a believer in Time in a Bottle!
More LIke Youth in a Bottle!
In the last month, three people that I haven't seen for about a year all said the same thing to me, "You never change. Why do you look so good?" Need I say more?
I have been using this serum for about 1 month. This serum makes your skin much brighter, clearer and it definitely glows. I only use it every other day and it still keeps my skin glowing. I would highly recommend this to everyone!
BEST SERUM EVER!!!!!
I have been using "Time in a Bottle" for over two weeks now and I absolutely love it. I am 68 years old and have very sensitive skin, especially around the eye area, and this product really works. I use it in the morning after cleansing with "Purity" and then top if off with "Hope in a Jar" and I my face has never looked this soft and alive. The dark circles around the eye area have diminished considerably and the crows feet are less noticeable. Thank you Philosophy for a solution to my problem and I am thrilled that I finally found something that works for me.
Not for skin with any natural oil
I am 54 and my skin has always tended toward oily, but like every woman I want to fight the signs of aging. I tried this one night and wound up with oily patches and oily blemishes by morning. I waited a week and tried again, same result. I have since given it away to a friend with much drier skin and she likes it. My skin loves the philosophy cleansers, but that seems to be it.
Been using the product for approximately one month. My skin is definitely more silkier and smoother and appears to be brighter. That said, I cannot, as yet, realize any significant change in the wrinkle range. Perhaps "as more time goes by" I will see a definitive reduction in that area. I also agree that more information would be helpful (i.e. which products to use immediately following application). I've been using Hope in a Jar after application of Time In a Bottle.
This stuff is great!
After using for a month the appearance of my wrinkles is greatly diminished. My face is not tight or dry like products I've purchased elsewhere. Bravo philosophy!!
Second To None
My initial review for this product is under the auto-delivery item and now I've used Time in a Bottle for a full month both morning and night. I'm very impressed. It comes packaged in glass containers, easy to pour and mix, shake it up - no scent, no stinging skin just drinks it in. I'm 47 going on 48, have super sensitive/allergenic skin I'm also very scent sensitive, some products/scents make me physically ill.
After 4 weeks I've still have not had any allergic skin or scent reactions and my skin looks so much better. I now have more even skin tone, smooth, clear, younger looking wow I'm so surprised even the visible sun damage and hyper-pigmentation is almost completely gone. I HAD prior sun damage and hyper pigmentation red across cheeks and nose and light brown\tea stain color along jawline, chin from pregnancies.
For me Time in a Bottle has now replaced other serums, both the iconic When Hope Is Not Enough and Miracle Worker. Time in a Bottle has simplified my skin care routine I adore the results, love the complements I'm getting on my complexion from others but nothing beats my 3 year old daughter patting my face and cooing "soft Mommy so soft".
Wonderful, effective serum. Great texture, light weight and nice smell. Seeing results in my skin texture and highly recommend to others.
