philosophy when hope is not enough serum, 4 oz is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 285.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Serum!!! I've been using When Hope is Not Enough Serum for several years and I love it! I am 56 years old and people can't believe my age. I always get compliments on my skin and I'm always told I look younger. I mix the serum with the Vitamin C booster powder and I love the way it makes my skin look and feel. The serum is not sticky or bad smelling to me, as other have stated. I believe it's just personal preference of what works for you or not, and this product hasn't failed me yet. I have recommended this product to some friends of mine along with the booster powder and they tell me they see a difference in their skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Product I bought this when it was a 2 large bottle TSV. I am 81 years old. Have been told I look much younger. I disagree with the reviewers who said it has a bad smell. It does not. I disagree that it is watery. It is like a slippery lotion and feels good on the skin. I use it in the morning and at night. I put a moisturizer over it. I have been using it for 2 months and do see a difference in my skin. It is smoother and plumper looking. It is absorbed quickly. I will continue to use this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No change This is my first time every writing a review, and when I read reviews I take them with a grain of salt, as I feel individuals really aren’t fair or honest. I use many different Philosophy products for over 13 years but this is not one that I will purchase again. I tried it once before (5years ago) and returned as it was not good then. Figured since “everyone” was raving about it, I would try again. The product is extremely watery and have been using for over 45 days and not a single difference. Just a watery item that dries on skin and no results of diminished fine lines or any firming of skin. I am glad I purchased during the time frame as I can return by 1/2020. Oil of Olay Regenerist is a far more superior product with results, just my opinion, returning today.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product I absolutely love what this product does for my skin! 4 stars only, because I don't care much for the scent of this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, love, love!!! I have been using this product for several years now and I am always being told how young I look, up to ten years younger! They always comment I must have good genes, but know, in addition to good genes it is "When hope is not enough facial firming serum"!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thrilled with the Immediate Results I’m amazed at the results. You don’t have to use half the bottle or wait weeks to see an improvement in the look and feel of your skin. Follow with a great moisturizer. I don’t understand the negative comments about the smell. I’ve been using it for about a year and couldn’t even recall a fragrance, so I just checked for specific odors ...& it’s light & clean, if any at all! The cost is a bit high but it lasts a long time and the results are obvious.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed Ordered the Hope is Not Enough 4 oz duo bottles w/bag. The first bottle I opened didn’t seem full. It was like putting water on my face. Didn’t bother opening the 2nd bottle. Just returned.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Impressed Maybe it’s just me . The smell is horrible. Another reviewer said the same and I concur . Another thing I noticed is that the first ingredient is water. So, how much water? I have 100 percent pure hyaluronic acid and does a much better job of hydration than Hope is not enough . For that reason I’m returning mine .
