Hope in a Jar is one of those moisturizers that smells weird but has an awesome texture. I have brought this moisturizer in a smaller size as my in-between moisturizer. Finally, I gave in and just bought the 2 oz. It goes on smooth and keeps your face moisturized and not greasy!
I switched from origins to hope in a jar and I have to say, I was disappointed. It was difficult to move around my face, sticking/globbing in areas. Also, I noticed slight break outs around my mouth. I've only deduced it must be this, since I haven't had that problem in the past.
However, it is very light-weight and once I get it everywhere, it does feel very smooth.
Yes, the lotion doesn't have the greatest smell, but it works!!! In the winter, my skin gets SUPER dry and flaky. This is the only product I have found that lasts all day! It is so creamy and amazing :) definitely one on my must-haves!
Like other reviewers, I also noticed that this has a VERY strong smell. I didn't expect this in a face cream. Used it anyways and got a bad rash on my face. I do have very sensitive skin, but never have I encountered a reaction like this with a face cream. Be careful...
Didn't like the Smell
I really was bothered by the smell of this cream. It was way too strong especially since it's a face cream. I couldn't use this again.
Great lighweight moisturizer
Great product for someone who doesn't want the feel of a heavy moisturizer. Whipped texture, absorbs into skin immediately.
This is light, absorbs quickly, and my skin actually feels moisturized, but not greasy. Great product. I don't love the scent, but it's worth it for the performance the product gives.
I love,love,love this product! I had run out of it awhile ago and when I saw that Birchbox carried it, I ordered it immediately. It was one of Oprah's Favorites and really earned its reputation. I use it morning and night.
Just say no
If you have sensitive skin then do not use this product! I love the Purity face wash but this moisturizer BURNED my face. Be sure to sample this first if you're considering it.
I stray and always come back
I quite like this moisturizer. I discovered it about seven years ago. I tend to stray and then always come back. The jar lasts a long time and I feel that my skin always looks better when I'm using it. Sometimes it can be heavy, so I don't like to use in during the daytime or in the summer. It gives a great glow and hydrates well.
