Review by NikkiHarbin
**My Skin/Needs**I'm 25, and my skin is oily/very oily in the t-zone, sensitive, and somewhat acne prone. I have very few fine lines (mainly under my eyes) and no wrinkles. I'm looking for anti-aging products with proven ingredients that will prevent wrinkles, make my skin look brighter/more youthful, hydrate my skin without adding oil or clogging my pores, protect and heal my skin from the damage from free radicals, and also, refine my pores making my skin appear smoother. **Review**After using this product for the past 2 - 3 days in the evening, I can see a slight difference in the hydration, smoothness, and brightness of my skin. The product is very soothing and hydrates my skin very well without feeling greasy or heavy. Overall, I would definitely recommend the product solely for its ability to soothe, smooth, and hydrate my skin. As for its anti-aging abilities, only time will tell. As with many anti-aging products, it's necessary to use the product for several weeks, sometimes months, to see if it's indeed effective at preventing and treating the signs of aging. There is no product capable of completely transforming one's skin overnight. It takes time. I recommend taking your picture before you start treating your skin with the anti-aging products of your choice, then retake your picture 4 to 6 weeks later to see if your skin has improved. This will help you determine if the product actually works. I believe that the ingredients used in most of Philosophy's anti-aging products (Vitamin C & E, Retinol, Hyaluronic Acid, Peptides) are scientifically proven to prevent and treat the signs of aging. In other words, I believe in the science behind their products. I will update my review in 4 to 6 weeks. ***Update...I've been using this product for about one month, and I love it. It makes my skin look and feel incredibly younger, hydrated, and smooth. It provides excellent all-day hydration with absolutely no greasiness/oiliness. Great product for all skin types (oily, dry, sensitive, acne prone). Although my skin is oily, sometimes very oily, and acne prone, this product has not caused me to break out. Best serum I've ever used. Very preventative and produces real results.....it definitely gives skin a huge boost! I will absolutely purchase again.
