philosophy: may we grow beautiful as we grow wise.

What is it: A lightweight, antioxidant-rich facial firming serum designed to help minimize the appearance of the signs of aging.

Who is it for: All skin types. Anyone experiencing the signs of aging who wants to bring back the natural radiance of dull-looking skin, and to help improve the skin's firmness.

Why is it different: This serum uses glutathione, peptides, vitamins C and E, and soy to create a lightweight formula that helps firm skin and minimize the appearance of fine lines. Its antioxidant properties help revitalize your complexion.

How do I use it: Apply the serum morning and evening after you cleanse, but before you moisturize. Place five to six drops in the palms of your hands and apply to the face and neck, avoiding the eye area.

From philosophy.

Rated 2 out of 5 by After Using For Over A Week, No Difference Had high hopes for this product, as the Hope in a Jar did not give enough moisturizer, so though that the two together might be a solution. Unfortunately all this product did was to coat my skin. Yes, that did make it appear smoother, but this is not going to improve anything. Needless to say returning. 10-11-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love Amazing results. I use this everyday under my makeup. 09-03-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by After many years of use..... It took me about 8 years to figure out how to make this serum go as far as it should on my face. The models on TV are not making those drops cover as much of their face and neck as it seems....it's a demonstration....that I thought should reflect how it would move on my face. So, out of frustration one morning...I lightly dampened my face with water....then put the drops on my fingers and starting moving it around on my face and neck. It was a light bulb moment...it easily spread from my forehead to my neck. This is what I have been doing for the last several months and it has not lessened my results one bit. So, if you are having trouble as I was.....just moisten your face and neck with water and you will be delighted as I am. I am 68 and have good skin...I've been using Philosophy products since they first came on QVC. 08-28-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Why Did I Ever Stray!! This is by far the best serum ever! I ran out and was in the drugstore ... You know the rest. Ordered this in supersize along with Renewed Hope in a Jar. I will never stray again! My skin did a complete about face and looks so much better! Love Philosophy -- always! 08-15-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Get compliments I am 65 years old. I have been using this product for years. I have heard it is not for my age skin. But, I totally disagree. My skin craves it. If I stop using even for a day or two I see the difference. Try it, really. My regimen is this serum & Purity & Microdelivery cleansers in supersize. I wish I could use any of the moisturizers but too rich for my skin & oh the bumps I get & have to have removed by dermatologist. Anyway I'm rambling. Also PLEASE I need senorita margarita, orange pineapple & others supersized & sold separately. Also bring back waffle cone in supersize sold separately too. Thanks! 07-30-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Devoted User I have been using this serum for YEARS! I have tried others and keep coming back to this. The reason: it's great all the way around. It doesn't have an odor, it isn't sticky and it doesn't make my face red or break me out. I have very sensitive skin too. Every time I put it on my face it just feels like my face took in a big gulp of water. I use once a day and this big bottle lasts me about 7 months. 06-25-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Best Ever !!! I can not say enough about this serum. I started using it about 7 years ago and love it. Over the years I have tried others like Tatcha, Perricone, PTR....No serum on the market compares to this. Talk about firm, tighten and tone...this serum delivers. Compared to the price of others that I have mentioned that are just ok...this product is a steal for what it actually does to your skin. The results are real, instant and the price is right. They advertise this as a drink of water for your skin but it is soo much more. I will never be without this. Thank you for making such a great product. 06-22-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by It has the SECRET" sauce !Does the job! I have been using this product faithfully twice a day for years - the active ingredient Hyaluronic acid holds up to 1000x its weight in water - the SECRET" ingredient no one tells you! About! it hydrates the skin, plumps the surface lines and wrinkles by binding moisture inside the skin cells. I am over 60 - my skin is flawless - minus the hyper pigmentation and redness which I use Bye Bye cosmetics to hide these imperfections- smooth- radiant skin- it's a must have in any gals regimen. Or guys for that matter too! Highly recommend it by Philosophy! 03-29-16
