Product / Review Excerpt Rating
Philosophy Acne Kit
I bought this after I tried Proactiv and just love it! I tend to break out during certain times of the month or when I'm stressed and Proactiv was just too strong for my skin. This is a great system, if you're like me and suffer the occasional bre..... full text >>
Philosophy bicarbonate vitamin C crystals
This is a great alternative to aha type exfoliants. First, you scrub your face with the crystals (in a paste form) and then apply an activation gel which dissolves the crystals and gives your face a dose of vitamin c. You allow this to sit on your face for a few minutes before rinsing off... full text >>
philosophy eye believe
I love this eye balm because I see results with it. It is so great feeling and the peptides and retinol really help the fine lines around my eyes to disappear. Eye believe also works as a great base under eye makeup. It is not oily but leaves your..... full text >>
Philosophy Hope And A Prayer PM Capsules
I found this product from Philosophy website, and the description of the product seems very nice. I have been using Philosophy product for more than a year and am quite happy with them, but I never try anything other than moisturizer and serum at night... full text >>
Philosophy Hope and a Prayer Vitamin C powder
At 40 year old, I still have combination skin that breaks out around my hormonal cycle. I have some fine lines around my eyes, but not so much on the rest of my face. I use other products from the Philosophy line and have found them to be very good ..... full text >>
Philosophy hope in a Bottle
I have had a difficult time finding just the right moisterizer. Philosophy's Hope in a Bottle is the best moisterizer that I have ever tried. I have normal to oily skin. Most of my oiliness in the t-zone. I also experience the occasional mont..... full text >>
Philosophy Hope in a Jar
I used these two products for one week and saw no improvement.I found it to be too greasy.Philosophy in a Tube for your eyes and lip did absolutely nothing.I did not overuse the product.I have read that you will see an improvement within days.I will..... full text >>
No effect
Philosophy Hope In A Jar
I love the entire Philosophy skin-care line. I no longer use various brands for different products. I use only one brand, the Philosophy brand, for all skin care and cosmetics. I highly recommend Philosophy to everyone. They have begun to carry ..... full text >>
Philosophy hope in a jar
I heard about this product on Oprah, so I thought I'd give it a try, I ordered it online, and I wasn't dissapointed. I love the texture of the cream, It's so light weight, like a whipped cream, and its non greasy, feels water based, and makes my skin feels hydrated and soft... full text >>
Philosophy Hope In A Jar
Philosophy's hope in a jar is a horrible moisturizer. I am a 26 year old female with combination dry skin who is worried about aging. I gave in and bought this because of all the hype, but all it did was sit on my skin and make my face EXTREMELY greasy... full text >>
Adverse Effects
Philosophy Hope in a Jar Eye and Lip Cream
I love the entire Philosophy line of products and have been using them for the past few months. I have seen wonderful results. It has really helped to smooth over the fine lines and wrinkles around my eyes and lips... full text >>
Philosophy Hope in a Jar- Eye and Lip Firming Cream
I have some sun damage and a lot of fine lines and creases in the eye area for my age (early 30s). Plain moisturizers have no impact on the skin around my eyes but I don't typically use products with harsh chemicals as my skin is easily irritated. This cream doesn't work miracles but after about four days of A... full text >>
Philosophy Hope in a Jar for Dry, Sensitive Skin
I have always had dry and very sensitive skin. Every deep moisturizer I tried still dried out when I even a tiny bit of make-up on, making my skin flaky. This moisturizer gives my skin a fresh glow and all the flakiness is gone... full text >>
Philosophy Hope In A Tube Eye and Lip Cream
First, let me address complaints about heaviness or greasiness: I haven't experienced this AT ALL. AM & PM (sometimes I skip if in a hurry, but daily, anyway) I use about half a pea size of each and just tap on the Eye Believe first under eye, crows feet, brow bone, none on eyelid or near inside corners (stings)... full text >>
Philosophy Hope is not Enough Serum
I bought this in a kit called Makeup Optional skin from QVC. After using it, I feel in love with the serum because it absorbed so well and made a dramatic difference in the overall appearance of my skin... full text >>
Philosophy Hope and a Prayer topical vitamin c
I found this product after trying various vitamin c products. This sounded like a great idea since its a vitamin c powder that is added to other lotions/serums. Per use appears to be much less expensive than other vitamin c products, where I might be skeptical of what is actually getting on your skin... full text >>
Philosophy microdelivery peel (great one)
This is a peel product that is designed to be used about once or twice a week. The purpose is to exfoliate and then infuse the skin with vitamin C. It is a two step process that takes about 5 minutes. I liked the results and my skin felt soft but somewhat sensitive... full text >>
Philosophy microdelivery peel (the great one)
As I approach my forties (at 37 and holding right now) I'm finding myself more and more interested (or should I say rather obsessed) with the care of my skin. Although I've been very faithful in following a good regimen for over five years now I am increasingly concerned about the effect aging is going to have on me some day soon... full text >>
Philosophy Microdelivery Peel
Having tried both Philosophy's Microdelivery Peel and professional microdermabrasion through a cosmetic surgeon's office, I have to admit I saw little immediate difference between them in how my skin looked and felt. The Microdelivery Peel kit contai..... full text >>
Philosophy Microdelivery peel
I use this product a couple of times a week, always on a Friday night so my face is looking at its best for the weekend : ) I bought it about 3 months ago and I am only half way through my first purchase. My skin still feels moisturized afterward... full text >>
Philosophy microdelivery peel
I have tried many skincare products and treatments, some work a bit better than others, but have yet to find a product that works well. My latest product was Philosophy microdelivery peel resurfacing treatment, it did absolutely nothing for my skin... full text >>
No effect
Philosophy Purity Made Simple
This product worked better on my fair, oily, very sensitive skin than any cleanser or soap I have ever tried. A very small amount about the size of a dime was enough for my face, and it rinsed off easily and quickly... full text >>
Philosophy Purity Made Simple
This is a great cleanser in a creamy base but does lather some. This is the best cleanser I have ever used (and I have tried so many). The price was very reasonable to the amount of product you get (8 oz for $20.00 or 16 oz. for $32.00). I have..... full text >>
Philosophy Purity Made Simple

Philosophy Purity one-step facial cleanser
I used this product twice a day, morning and evening, for approximately one year. It seemed to do a good job of cleansing my skin and preventing build-up of dead skin. My skin was clear and clean looking without blemishes. I did have some reddeni..... full text >>

Having fair skin, I was looking for a sunscreen to supplement my moisturizer(s) that didn't have any sun protection already in them. ) until I was able to find one that didn't have either zinc oxide in it that leaves a whitish tinge or one that left a greasy look or feel on my face... full text >>

Philosophy When hope is not enough serum
I received this as part of a kit. At first I didn't think it would be something I would need to use. Now it has become a staple. My indented scarring is becomming less noticable. After reading the ingredients I realized it contains peptides. The sam..... full text >>
