Review: Philosophy Time in a Bottle 100% in Control Daily Age-Defying Serum

I have been testing a new serum from Philosophy called Time in a bottle. This serum is great for anti-aging, it helps with repairing skin damage, protect from daily aggressors and reactivate skin's natural age-resisting mechanisms. It is a product for preventing the signs of aging.


Here is the fun part! When using it for the first time, you need to pour the entire vial of high-potency vitamin c8 activator into the serum, and fasten pump to the bottle. After that, you need to shake well for 20 seconds. The serum will turn light pink, indicating it is ready to begin transforming your skin. You need to use it within 3 months for best results. You can either use it in the morning or at night or both. I normally apply this after toner and essence.

SERUM: aqua/water/eau, dimethicone, BIS-PEG-18 methyl ether dimethyl silane, cyclopentasiloxane, PEG-8, alcohol denat., butylene glycol, glycerin, dimethiconol, polyethylene, xantham gum, phenoxyethanol, benzophenone-4, bifida ferment lysate, PTFE, caprylyl glycol, 1, 2-hexanediol, propylene glycol, hydroxyethyl acrylate/sodium acryloyldimethyl taurate copolymer, squalane, plantago lanceolata leaf extract, disodium edta, caprylic/capric triglyceride, parfum/fragrance, silica dimethyl silylate, sodium hydroxide, adenosine, physalis pubescens fruit juice, lecithin, polysorbate 60, alcohol, tocopherol, acrylates/C10-30 alkyl acrylate crosspolymer, silica, hydrolyzed soy flour, citric acid, sodium phosphate, BHT, sodium chloride, ascorbyl palmitate, camellia sinensis leaf extract, coffea arabica (coffee) seed extract, pongamia pinnata seed extract, punica granatum fruit extract, bacillus ferment, linalool, sodium benzoate, angelica archangelica root extract, citrus aurantium amara (bitter orange) peel extract, maltodextrin, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, trisodium edta, magnesium aluminum silicate, acetic acid, potassium chloride, potassium phosphate, ascorbic acid, lactic acid, sclerotium gum, plankton extract, micrococcus lysate, sorbic acid, retinyl palmitate, titanium dioxide (CI 77891), mica.

The shade of the serum is light pink with a very light shimmer. It is lightweight, very easy to spread and sinks in quickly. The only thing I don't really like about the texture is when you don't use the serum for a few days, it gets a little bit clumpy on the first pump.

In The Netherlands you are able to purchase it at Iciparisxl and it's sold for €76.88.-. Not an inexpensive serum I would say.

The serum feels lightweight on the skin and hydrated, just 1 pump is enough for the entire face which is definitely a plus. I have been using this for 2 months every morning. It is great for sensitive skin as well. I couldn't see much improvements at first regards my fine lines that I have. However, during the time I did notice that my skin is firmer. If you are willing to spend money, have a look at this serum. Of course this is no wonder product that removes all your wrinkles or lines, but it will definitely firm the skin up a bit while leaving it hydrated.

note: this product was sent to me for review purposes, this didn't affect my opinion about the product. I didn't receive money to write about it, see disclaimer.
