Really works

Have been using this for a month along with Philosophy Miraculous anti-aging retinol and When Hope Is Not Enough daytime and nighttime moisturizers. I can really see a difference in firmness of skin on face (some improvement on jawline and neck) and skin looks more radiant. Have 2 large dark areas from sun damage and they do not seem quite as dark. Will definitely buy this again.Read full review...

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" serum gives you HOPE!

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.Read full review...


Love It...will keep buying.. large size is a good value

Philosophy when hope is not enough a very light non greasy serum that goes well under your moisturizer,sunblock and makeup. A little of the serum goes a long way so you don't have to use too much. I use this on my face neck and decollete. I have very oily skin and tend to have ocassional breakouts which I have found that the serum DOES NOT! contribute too. I have also started my husband on the serum and he has total opposite type of skin. He loves it especially because he doesn't like anything too heavy or greasy on his skin.It also has a tiny hint of scent but nothing at all overpowering and when it absorbs you can't smell it at all. He also finds that the bottle with the eye dropper makes it fast and easy for him to use when hes in a rush to get out the door in the morning..All in all I have used this for 2 years now and I will continue to use this product as long as they make it:)Read full review...


Fantastic for 50+ skin

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.Read full review...


I would never go without HOPE SERUM never!!

This is one of the best products that i have ever used. Philosophy is a great brand and i use many of the items, BUT When Hope is not enough Serum leaves my face as smooth as a babys bottom REALLY! for me it evens out my skin tone and leaves my face smooth and soft to the touch, your skin really looks firmer at least for me, no joke! my hubby even comments at times about the look and feel of my skin and this is due in part to this product I LOVE IT. I use 2 other Philosophy products with the serum. For me theres nothing like it and i will use it forever. I have never been a big makeup person and i dont like the feel of foundation on my face this product lets me have great looking skin with NO foundations or cover up products. Iam a Philosophy Girl big time. You should give it a try and i bet you will end up loving it as i do.Read full review...


Excellent Seller, Excellent Product!!

After two trips to different spas for consultations I discovered that I had been clogging my skin with lotion/cream moisturizers. I had been pretty much banned due to my oily skin, but cannot use any lotion moisturizer- not even oil-free! However, I still have some patches of dryness & acne scarring, so my solution? SERUMS. After trying everything from Drugstore brands to LaMer & back, I found this gem of a serum- Philosophy When Hope is Not Enough. The soy helped diminish my acne scars & it was just the right amount of moisture without clogging my skin- I can't get enough of this stuff, & this seller gives it to me at the right price!! Will definitely buy again!Read full review...


Love Love Love

Philosophy has the best When Hope Is Not Enough Serum. After the first use ( use a little ), you can actually see and feel how much better your skin looks and feels. I use it at night and morning on a clean face. Then apply the Philosophy regiment. If you have had any doubts or have not tried it, you won't be sorry. Give it a try. I saw this on a popular tv channel and decided to try ebay first. Price was better on ebay. I will continue purchasing this product on ebay.Read full review...


The best serum available on the market.

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.Read full review...


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.
