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 5 out of 5 by from Essential for hydration I have very dry skin and I live in a dry climate. I use this product in the morning and at bedtime. QVC please come out with the SUPER SIZE 5.7 ounce size again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible serum...on my umpteenth bottle In the world of serums, my skin is super-tricky. If it is too strong, my skin breaks out and I'm 55. This serum has never given me anything but beautiful nearly no-makeup skin. I would consider the Mega bottle (5.7 oz), but I want the ingredients to stay at least semi-fresh and a bottle that big feels like too much. The super size lasts me about 7-8 months which is unbelievable for the effectiveness. With regard to the claims of tackiness, etc., I will share that I exfoliate with Tacha rice powder exfoliator once every other week which helps the serum soak right in. Even with this step e/o week, I still put this on 1st thing in the morning before brushing teeth which is exactly 2 minutes and I've never experienced wet or tacky feeling. Just a perfect serum. I'm adding this only as a comparison: I switched to Meaningful Beauty serum which I absolutely loved, but it immediately made my skin break out and cleared right up when I stopped. Not switching from this ever again unless they discontinue.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from WOW $$$ Love this serum BUT, $108.00 for (1) 4 oz bottle!!! Seriously!!! I purchased back in July (2) 4 oz bottles for $119.08. Philosophy and QVC prices have increased dramatically on a lot of their products!!! Doesn't seem fair to loyal Philosophy customers...... Don't know that I will be able to continue purchasing due to inflated prices!! Can't recommend at these prices.......

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I wish it worke for me I don't know why this has worked for so many customers, but not for me. I tried this for weeks and no change. Years ago Philosophy had a serum named "Save Me". It was fantastic! I would use it before bed and the next morning there was an obvious improvement in my skin. I wish they would bring that back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hope serum Love it! I would highly recommend! I am 59 and had lost hope with my face, then I started using this! My face is looking much better, I have even received compliments♡ I don't think it will make me look "16" again, but it is definitely improving!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best serum ever! I've used this serum for a few years now, and it's the best serum ever! It truly does make a difference in my skin and I couldn't be happier! The trick is, after you put it on, it is a tad bit "tacky" to the touch (they tell you it isn't, but it is!) so I just let it 'dry' for literally 2 minutes and then put on my moisturizer .. and as a last step, I use the "eye & lip" cream! I can't say enough good things about this serum!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cant live without this!!! I have tried so many other serums that are on the market. None of them compare to Philosophy. I have been using this product for a year a see a big improvement in fine lines. I am 54 years old and look like I am in my mid forties so I have been told. I use the serum, purity made simple, micro exfoliating wash and miracle worker moisturizer and my skin looks awesome.. I will NEVER be without these products. Thank you Philosophy.
