Philosophy Time In A Bottle Daily Age-Defying Serum


I’m a skincare junkie and I believe one of the beauty secrets for a bright-looking skin is to exfoliate our skin regularly.

Many months ago, I was invited to experience a mini rejuvenating peel facial session (about 60 mins) at Philosophy Peel Cabin at their newly opened flagship store at Takashimaya S.C. Ngee Ann City at B2-03A. During the session, I got to try a couple of Philosophy products for the first time, including their popular Microdelivery Peel. Super like the gentle touch of the therapist’s fingers.

Redefine Your Beauty Sleep

Your skin repairs and renew itself while you sleep. New skin cells grow and replace older cells. Hence it’s essential to take advantage of those precious eight hours as your skin goes into repair mode. So after removing all make-up and residue on the skin, a night cream will gently help your skin’s rejuvenation process. Say goodnight to fine lines, uneven skin tone and roughness. and wake up having a smoother and youthful skin.

Your skin actually does most of its repair work between the golden hours of 10:30pm and 2am, and I will strongly advise you to sleep during the hours. It actually makes a big difference if I sleep after 2am. My skin will appear dry, rough and dull-looking in the next morning.

Hope In A Jar Night, an intense retexturizing moisturizer, helps redefine your beauty sleep with a gentle dose of glycolic acid that allows deeper penetration into the skin that stimulates cell regeneration and plump up fine lines.

Philosophy FULL OF PROMISE Treatment Duo Serum & Dual-Action Restoring Cream


As we age, collagen production can slow and lead to a loss in skin volume and firmness, elastin fibers also begin to lose their spring, fray and become disorganized, making them less able to bounce back and withstand the forces of gravity. All of these factors can lead to a loss of facial definition and volume that can keep skin from looking youthful and plump.

Apart from pigmentation, lines and wrinkles; volume and lift are in fact my key anti-aging concern. What I hate most now are my nasolabial folds and marionette lines which make me look old. They are caused by the loss of elasticity, collagen and volume in the skin. For a truly youthful appearance, my facial volumes must be lifted.

Till now, I have not found any skincare products or non-invasive treatments that can help reduce the look of these signs of aging. Unless I opt for a surgical face-lift treatment but for now this option is a no-no for me.

Philosophy full of promise

Recently, Philosophy has launched a new advanced volumizing and lifting skincare collection that is said to reawaken the skin’s natural revitalizing system that supports natural collagen and elastin, and help to restore the appearance of full, firm and lifted skin.

Introducing the FULL OF PROMISE, comprised a 2-step TREAT and MOISTURIZE regimen.


Step 1 – TREAT
