"When Hope Is Not Enough" serum gives you HOPE!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Philosophy is one of my favorite companies. I previously had tried "When Hope Is Not Enough" serum when I had ordered a kit from Philosophy a couple years ago. This product was great for me personally because I tend to have oily skin in the T zone, however I am at the "50ish" age now and so have a few lines on my face. This product was and is the answer for ME. It smooths your face beautifully. I apply foundation right on top of this and it gives a flawless finish (for drier skin than mine, you can apply moisturizer over this product). It is a good primer for makeup. When I was browsing Ebay and saw this product at such a reasonable price, I had to buy it. The product I purchased from Ebay was a little more watery than I remember, but it still works pretty good.

I'm impressed so far...

I bought this product because I had read so many great reviews about it, thought I'd give it a try. My main skin concerns are: some very minor nasolabial "sagging" (my bf thinks it's ridiculous and doesn't even notice...but you know, we are our own worst critics), minor fine lines under the eyes, and some dark spots. I have to say, I have seen an improvement in all these areas after using this serum. Even the little horizontal lines on my forhead I've had since I was a teenager are greatly decreased. Those are the pros. The cons are that the bottle 'dropper' basically fell apart, so now I have to seal the serum in a plastic bag to mainain freshness. Also, the amount (1 oz.) is small, and only lasted me about 3 weeks. Although, I just ordered another because I seem to be getting good results.
We'll see how the next few weeks go!

When Hope Is Not Enough Firming and Lifting Serum

I like those product to make my skin soft, but it's not enough to make them softer. I heard about those product, so I give it a try and see if I like it.

I have always like philosophy products but am not reall impressed with this one. I haven't really seen any difference since using it.

When Hope Is Not Enough Serum

I like this product. It feels good on the skin and has no fragrance or smell. Not sure if it has lifted anything, but my skin looks more even and feels great!!
It makes skin smooth for makeup application.

I bought it because I have used other Philosophy items and they are all wonderful. Yes I would purchase it again.
