I bought it for the first time in the end on 2010, I use "When Hope is not Enough" not too intesely, I'd say from time to time, but still the effect is really visible - face gets the lifting when needed. My skin is of a sensitive type but I never developed any negative reaction on this serum. I will buy it again not only for me, but for both my mother and my mother-in-law, because I care for these women and I want them to stay young as long as possible. Well, in other words, I am more than just happy about the purchase of Philosophy "When Hope is not Enough". I just wish this serum was distributed not in bottles with dropper but in bottles with dispenser so the serum was safe from any bacterial meddling.
I am 53 years young and have used Philosophy's When Hope is not Enough Firming and Lifting Serum for about 3 years now. I have noticed that it reduces small lines and keeps the skin on my face and neck soft and supple, not tight. It is oil free, so it is great on combination skin, such as mine. It does not break skin out and the added benefit is that it reduces facial hair growth too. I have also noticed that since it has c in it, it keeps my skin from getting sun spots. It's the only product I use on my face after washing, but I use it religously and have been amazed at the overall improvement of my skin over time.
I AM 68 AND HAVE A FEW LAUGH LINES AND THIS PRODUCT WORKS GREAT IN THOSE AREAS OF MY FACE. I HAVE NOTICED LESS WRINKLES SINCE USING PHILOSOPHY HOPE IS NOT ENOUGH.
It works! I am 46 years old and never used sunscreen. Being an outdoors person you can imagine the damage. I get compliments on my skin and that I do not look my age. It does not break me out and feels good when I put it on. I have been using this product more than a year and it still works great for me.
A coworker told me about Philosophy When Hope Is Not Enough and I decided to try it. I have used other serums and wasn't really that impressed. With the first use I could tell this by far surpassed other brands. In combination with the microdelivery peel and Hope in a Jar my skin is much softer, smoother and younger looking. I love it.
I am terribly ill. But I am using my philosophy cleaner and definitly Hope is not Enough. I had cancer and had to have a third of my tongue removed and consequently my teeth. I had to wait quite sometime to get the theeth so I have deep crevases from the nose to the mouth. I used it fathfully and when I put in my new teeth as well and it was making quite a difference. Unfortunately I am still ill and dropped my bottle the other night and spilled it all out. I suggest this to anyone...period. Great product. I can't wait till I can get some more for myself. Everyone should use it no matter what age other than children. I was extremely pleased and wish I had had some much earlier in my life. It would certainly make a great gift! Triciebella/TN
I am over 60 years old and have been using this serum (large size) for over 4 years & cannot be without it. I have asthma, allergies & very sensitive skin and have never had a problem with it. I always keep one in reserve because I don't want to run out of it. I always use the largest size, even through the price is very high. I had used many other products in the past,but this one is absolutely the best.
I am a 49 year old women. I bought Hope is not Enough because Oprah raved about it way back when. This is the third bottle I bought. I LOVE IT SO MUCH. It makes my face feel soft and smooth and the tiny lines around my eyes seem like they are less noticable. I have above the lip lines that look like smoker lines (except that I don't smoke)They are the same though, this hasn't changed that. I love that I just need a little droplet for one side of my face to feel smooth. This is the first "serum" that I tried. I wondered if it worked so well because it was a serum, so I tried other serums...one being Loreals. The others did not do what Hope is not Enough does. It has no chemical smell to it like some others do. I recommend this to people who want a smoother, softer feel to your face. It has spoiled me. I do not like to be with out it now. Peace!
I love, love, love this serum. I use many philosophy products and really like the brand. This serum is one of my favorites because it works. My face looks firmer and feels firmer. It also appears more even toned with much better texture. I've recommended the product to friends and all that have tried it like it a lot. The price is reasonable as you only need to use 3-4 drops, so the 4oz bottle lasts a while.
great product. my skin has felt smoother since I have used it. Light sent and non greasy. I would definatley recommend this. I also use hope in a tube for the eyes and upper lip. Philosophy is great. Ebay has great prices the best I have found for half off retail.
