Philosophy Time in a Bottle for Eyes



I've been testing out Philosophy's Time in a Bottle for Eyes for about a month now, and colour me impressed.  It's a lightweight, hydrating serum for the eye area, designed to be layered with a traditional eye cream, and it claims to brighten and smooth the eye area.

Texture wise, it's incredibly light and fluid, as you can see from the photo above - it's a silky liquid which sinks into the skin very quickly, leaving no residue and yet still somehow hydrating the eye area very, very well.  I've not needed another eye cream on top of it, but if you have very dry skin around your eyes you might want to layer up with a richer cream.

And as for the effects... I've noticed a marked improvement in the dark circles in the corner of my undereye area, and my fine lines are a little smoother than usual.  I'm more impressed with the day-long hydration afforded by this super-light serum than the brightening effects, though - in the past I've had slightly flaky areas appear towards the end of the day, particularly as the weather gets colder, but I've not experienced any dryness since I started using this lovely product.

At £36 for 15ml, there's no doubt that this is an expensive serum, and if your eyes are used to very rich creams, you might find that the need for both this serum and a cream makes your eye hydration regime a very expensive affair.  Used alone, though, it's actually quite economical - I've been using it twice daily for a month and there are no signs that it's going to run out anytime soon.  Find it now at the Philosophy website.
