I've always had pretty clear skin. A year ago though I started having some serious issues at my chin. Everyone was stumped. Me, friends and family and even doctors and my fabulous facialist (my nickname for my est.). I tried everything, from expensive to cheap. I tried Proactive and it was TERRIBLE. Made it worse and gave me a rash. NOT for sensitive skin.
On to the good news and the reason why I posted
I just turned 25 and have become obsesed with anti-aging (don't laugh!). I bought Philosophy's When Hope is Not Enough Serum. A fan of the Philosophy line, I thought I would try it. Well, in a week my skin is not only almost completely clear, but the pinkish scars from my "battlewounds" are almost gone as well. I know its not an acne treatment, but I guess the combo of Vit. C, anti-oxis and all the other goodies in a "condensed" form really help. It can be expensive, I bought it off of eBay. Thought I would pass along my miracle worker. My skin is once again, clear, glows and honestly as the Philosophy line says "Make-up optional". My complexion is back!!!!

I really wanted this to work. This broke me out badly. I have oily/acne prone skin and thought this would make a difference.It did---not in a good way but in a bad way.

I added this into my skincare routine about three weeks ago and am very impressed! I use and love Philosophy's peel and HIAJ, but I was concerned that adding the serum would cause breakouts or irritation. Happy to report that neither happened (not even the monthly hormonal). Love the little apothecary bottle w/dropper. I apply a drop or two of this to my face every other morning under my sunscreen. After a minute it soaks right in. I have/had two tiny lines around my mouth and was starting to sag at the jawline a bit, but after about three weeks of using WHINE I can see that one of the two tiny lines around has disappeared and the other is less visible. I also use it every day on my neck area and my skin is getting firmer. Impressive results for such a short time.

OMG - the smell!!! ::gags:: Wow - I can't use this product without thinking of wood chips. The fragrance is so strong and unpleasent ... granted, it goes "grow on you" as you use it daily ... but its still a big turn off.
The product performance, however, seems good. I'm young and don't really *need* to worry about facial firming as of yet, but this came in the kit I bought and I figure its never to early to start! So, while I can't see noticable improvement while using this product, it hasn't had any ill effects on my sensitive skin and that's a good sign!

The cons: Smells a bit strange, but havn't had it long to get used to it yet. Also not sure how much to apply and funny application wand. The Pros: Glides on a treat! Even though unsure of quantity, a little goes a long way. The bottle is all medicinal looking, which i like. Love how the ingredients list is PACKED full of goodies. I have young skin anyway but really felt soft and fuller after first use. My skin literally ate it up! It's also meant to reduce facial hair which cant be a bad thing. I bought this product as a set so I am unsure at its individual cost, but verging on the more expensive I think. Will definately stick with it and keep enjoying my vitalised skin.

Hope is not enough because this stuff did not do a thing for my skin. It feels incredibly sticky. I got it in a dry skin kit. I see no difference but will finish the bottle.
