Looks like philosophy® has figured out how to save time in a bottle. And the first thing they’d like to do … is market it to me! Yay!
I’m a sucker for anything that says “age-defying” or “serum” even though I know deep down that it’s all a bunch of hooey. If it worked, Joan Rivers’ face wouldn’t look like a bed sheet tucked in by a drill sergeant. But I’m too much of a control freak to just let nature take its course without doing something.
I tried a sample of philosophy®’s facial cleanser not long ago and loved it, so despite being an ardent fan of Mary Kay cosmetics, I had to give this product a try.
It’s so cool because it’s a little like performing that catalyst experiment in sophomore chemistry (see? it’s making me feel younger already!). To use this product, you have to mix the little orange bottle of “high-potency vitamin C8 activator” (which “works in synergy to help protect from skin-aging environmental aggressors” — take that, aggressors!) with the big bottle of serum. Philosophy even provides a little funnel to make mixing easy.
For all I know, the orange stuff is orange juice concentrate, but I felt like a less nervous version of Beaker from the Muppets (mee-mee-mee mee!).
It turned me into a magician, too — this stuff supposedly works on aging factors not yet visible and the visible ones! I’m worried enough about the wrinkles I can see without worrying about invisible aging! Eek!
I appreciate philosoph®y’s marketing approach, too. It speaks to me. Naturally, a product name lifted from a Jim Croce song appeals to women of a certain age, and the quote on the box is a keeper: “time can be on your side. when you focus on what really matters, time becomes your lifelong friend.”
“Wrinkles happen to human beings.”
