philosophy when hope is not enough serum is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 208.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Matrixyl 3000, Firming, Plumping This serum contains the peptides that when used in combination are called Matrixyl 3000. Google if you haven't heard if it yet. This is a powerhouse of skin nutrients and collagen builders. Wow! And it's so easy to mix the Turbo C powder with this. This doesn't irritate my skin and is not greasy. It applies slightly tacky and dries down in a minute or two. Wonderful price point for the ingredients in this serum. Firming and plumpimg!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hasn't done much for me I wanted a new serum. After reading all of the rave reviews, I thought I'd give this a try. I don't usually like serums with vitamin C in them. But because there were other ingredients, I thought this would be different. I'm not impressed. I've been using it for about a month now and have even add the booster C powder and haven't seem much difference. My skin seems about the same as before using it. No real improvement in skin tone or dark spots, no noticeable firmness, nothing much except the smell of any vitamin C serum on my face smells like sweat. That's why I avoid vitamin C serums, the smell and tacky feel on my skin. I was hopeful based on reviews, but this is a no go for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from confused & disappointed The reviews I read before purchasing this product gave me "hope" that this would be a good addition to my skin-saving routine. I don't notice that it firms or that it gives my skin any kind of glow. What I do notice is the nasty smell of this serum. Ugh! This serrum is much heavier than any serum I've tried before, which also surprised me. Just not for me! (If it didn't smell so bad, I'd give it a try on my hands & feet).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's OK It's an OK serum, I have tried better. I haven't seen any improvement and I feel my face is a little dryer and tackier after using.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, love LOVE this product! I use it with the Turbo c powder. I've been using it for years and I have to say my skin looks pretty darn good for 58 (in April). I have minimal lines and I'm happy with the texture of my skin. They are 2 products I never want to be without.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from almost perfect If this was fragrance free it would be perfect ...not sure what this need is to have scented skin care products ...fragrance is for the body, not the face ...that being said, not sure I will buy it again for that reason, perhaps look at a different product line ...too bad, everything else about this serum is wonderful. The scent is not strong, but I question why it is there at all ...if fact most of your skin care has added fragrance :(

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not this time The first time I used a serum was with this product. I was able to purchase it for a great price. When the bottle was empty and I saw the cost of replacing... I thought I could do without. Within a few weeks I noticed the texture of my skin was notas smooth. I tried Josie's milk serum at intro price. Going back to Josie. Works better on my mature, sensitive skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Serum Ever Love how this serum makes my skin feel. Smooth and moisturized. At 55 this is just what my skin needs. I stopped using it for a couple of months, that won't happen again, my skin looks smoother and brighter with this serum. I use in the morning and evening mostly on my neck under eyes and above upper lip. Sometimes all over face...it feels so good!
