I love all things philosophy but this. A big old waste of cash. It is not a soufflé-like texture like the body cream which I use everyday. It smells something awefull and it clumps.
I have found way better and cheaper face creams from birchbox than this. I love the Embryolisse face cream and make up goes on like a dream with that. I also love love love at night and a little goes on forever..100% Pure Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine eye cream.
I have never been more happy with a daily moisturizer, than I have been with this product. Light weight formula. A little goes a long way. The name "hope in a jar" is the perfect description of how I feel about this moisturizer.
I use this product at night before bed. It leaves my skin hydrated, but not oily. I haven't noticed a bad smell when using this product.
I have been a dedicated "Hope in a Jar" user for years. I am in my early thirties and I have not found a product that compares. I use it before putting on makeup and at night. It has the consistency of whipped butter, but it doesn't leave you greasy. It has no smell, and you do not need much, so it lasts forever! Highly recommended.
The smell is a deal breaker.
Works well, but the smell is so unpleasant and long-lasting that I actually had to throw this away after only a few uses. The "renewed" hope in a jar formula also works great with a way better smell-- try that instead.
