Best Face Cream for Sensitive Skin!

I can not use many moisturizers on my skin for fear of breakouts or irritation. Hope In a Jar does the job and lasts all day! Very gentile and light!

In love with Hope in a Jar
Purchased

I use this product once per day after my morning skin cleansing and I love it. It wears well under makeup. I have combination skin and it doesn't leave areas over oily but is moisturizing enough for dryer areas.

My favorite moisturizer
Purchased

Hope in a Jar is my holy grail moisturizer. I've been using it for years on my combination skin. It keeps everything evened out and doesn't break me out. If you're looking for a gentle everyday moisturizer, I highly recommend this!

Not what I expected

I wanted to love this moisturizer after all the positive reviews. It is light weight and absorbs quickly but left me feeling like I need to reapply mid day.

I expected more...

Not exactly what I was expecting with all the hype. I do own several other Philosopy products and love them.

Use this after mircodelivery peel and purity

I have been using philosophy products for over 6 years now. This is one of the best products I've ever had! My skin is a combo of normal and dry; this does not make my skin feel oily. Best used after using philosophy's mircodelivery peel and purity.

Great Product

I have been using this for years and cannot say enough positive things about it. I have sensitive dry skin and when a moisturizer is too heavy it causes me to break out. This is one of the few moisturizers that TRULY makes my skin feel moisturized BUT doesn't cause me to break out. Its so nice and light. I love it and highly recommend it.
