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.

philosophy when hope is not enough serum, 4 oz is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 254.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from First time skin care gave me cystic acne. I purchased this serum and after 2 days of use I had a very painful, small lump under my skin that never came to a head. It took 2 weeks to go away. Thinking it was a fluke, I tried again 2 months later, and the same thing happened. This is the first skin care product to ever give me extremely painful bumps under my skin. Awful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Stuff I like this and use it a few times a week. But I'd like to know which product is especially good on lines around the mout? Marionette lines and laugh lines?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HATE Philosophy products apart from this serum!!! Everything I've tried from the Philosophy line has been returned over the years apart from this serum. I started using this about seven years ago and always return. Yes, I have cheated on this serum with others such as Juice Beauty & Sunday Riley. However, I just placed another order for this one. It's become my go-to, as they say. This plumps much more than some of the more expensive products on the market. People call THIS expensive??? Have you seen what some of the luxury brands charge now??? This is a deal & it works for me!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice Baby Steps Purchased in a kit, knowing I like Purity. This is cute for teaching little girls how to start skin care regimes but not serious for adult skin care.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle in a bottle I have used Philosophy products since they began selling at QVC. I have used PURITY facial cleanser since it was first sold and nothing else on my face. My skin feels really clean and not tight after washing (no dry patches, either). I always apply this wonderful serum as well as a moisturizer afterwards. I just love this serum, wouldn't be without it. I am on auto delivery so I don't run out. I am often complimented on my skin (I am in my mid-60s). I attribute it to excellent skin care and excellent products such as this line. I don't think the smell is over-powering and the little fragrance it omits is quickly dissipated. I will continue using Philosophy products, especially WHINE Serum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Ever I've used everything out there and this is one of the few products that has kept my skin wrinkle free and improved my skin in all areas. I've spent thousands of dollars on serums, creams, beauty tools, you name it and I can truly say, this is all I need. The rest of my beauty regime is packed away or given away. I'm 62 and people think I'm in my twenties, seriously!!! This product has worked wonders for me. I had good skin to begin with, but this has seemed to stop the aging effects and reversed them. Awesome product! I have added Josie Maran's argon oil products with this in the last week, waiting to see if I turn into a teen now!!! Very excited and would recommend this to anyone who has tried it all.
