“Life is a never-ending to-do list”, you can say that again; between running my own business, a charity, a blog, working part-time in the mall and trying to spend time with friends and family, it seems there is never enough time in the day. Then you add in how long it takes to get ready in the morning and how much time we spend analyzing our skin, I’m surprised we have any time to even breath. Did you know if you spend 1 minute a day looking at your skin in the mirror, over the course of a year it equals 6 hours, and then if you spend 5 minutes a day checking every pore, wrinkle and sun spot, over 1 year you’ve just wasted 30 hours. Think of all the extra time you could have had focusing on the positive things in your life instead of being negative and harsh on yourself; maybe more time with family, relaxing on the beach, enjoying hobbies or just taking some “me” time. Philosophy’s Time in a Bottle is a daily age-defying serum with DNA renewal complex and high-potency vitamin C8 activator that will help check skin care off your list, so you can spend your time focusing on what really matters in your life.
Philosophy’s Time in a Bottle has an exclusive DNA renewal complex combining 4 enzymes that help to promote skin’s natural renewal process. The photolyase helps to repair damage from UV radiation, Endonuclease sustains natural DNA repair mechanism from UV rays, Glycosylase helps repair DNA oxidative damage and Alkyl Transferase helps DNA alkylation by removing alkyl compound from DNA. High–potency vitamin C8 activator is one of the newest and most efficient forms of vitamin c and works with the DNA renewal complex to offer significant protection of cells against free radicals. This serum is for anyone, any age, any skin type and helps to tackle visible signs of aging leaving the skin radiant, poreless, even, smooth, firm and wrinkle free….. yes please!
Philosophy’s Time in a Bottle is totally unique and unlike any other product on the market and has a “fresh pouring technology” which means the DNA renewal complex and Vitamin C8 activator are kept separate in the box to retain the highest level of activity. When you’re ready to use the product for the first time, you instantly become a scientist and must pour the Vitamin C8 activator into the DNA renewal complex and shake for about 20 seconds. The serum changes from a milky white shade to a rosy pink colour which means its ready to transform your skin and was way cooler than any Science class I took.
Philosophy’s Time in a Bottle can be used both morning and night after cleansing the skin and then followed up with your favourite moisturizer and eye cream. The serum has a very light, thin consistency in a lovely pink shade with a pleasant, subtle smell. It gives a cool and refreshing feeling to the skin and one pump is more than sufficient to cover the entire face. It absorbs into the skin almost instantly without any tackiness or residue left behind and since its quick drying you can apply your makeup right away.
I’ve been using Philosophy’s Time in a Bottle for the past two weeks both day and night and haven’t had any severe breakouts like I do with other serums. It’s easy to use, goes on smooth and keeps your skin hydrated all day long. After only 2 short weeks, my skin is already smoother, brighter and my acne scars and sun spots are visibly reduced and lighter. It’s added back some firmness to my skin all while keeping it moisturized and hydrated. I love that it uses natural ingredients and has a shelf life of 3 months, you know it’s fresh when the expiry date is so short. Time is on my side now, leaving me to focus on what’s really important in my life and not just my skin.
Philosophy’s Time in a Bottle is definitely a high quality serum, ringing in at $76 for 40ml worth of serum and 2.8ml worth of activator, but since it has an unique formula to it, unlike any other, I do believe it’s well worth the price. It’s available at Sephora and, at the beginning of January 2014, at select Shoppers Drug Mart and The Bay.
