A steal.

This is a great moisturizer, and if you feel that your skin is thirsty, this may be a good solution for your everyday needs. I simply love the sensation it gives my skin. It absorbs very well, has a very subtle scent, and immediately creates smoothness. I think that if you just want only one face care product, this is the best one!

Best Moisturizer!

I have tried all kinds of moisturizer, and this one has been my favorite so far. Like Goldilocks and the three bears, this one is just the right about of moisture, without leaving my skin feeling oily or dried out. The only thing I don't love about this lotion is that it has an almost medicinal smell. Luckily, it goes away within a few minutes, but it definitely throws you off at first.

Fantastic cream. The formula is light and absorbs quickly. The smell doesn't bother me at all. I kind of like it actually. I'll definitely be buying this again.

The best I've tried

Very light, perfect conditioning, absorbs quickly and doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy. It really is the best lotion I've tried. I can't go without.

Light and creamy, so dreamy

This moisturizer is so light and fluffy you'll look forward to using it every day. The skin really seems to soak it up and leaves my skin feeling soft and silky. This would get 5 stars if it also had an spf added to it. Smells great too.

beauty has a price

The smell of this product is definitely not my favorite but worth it and tolerable. I normally apply it a while before heading out so the smell will wear off a bit. It leaves my skin moisturized without a greasy finish.

Great Moisturizer
Purchased

I have very sensitive skin and this moisturizer doesn't burn, itch, or make me break out!! It helps my dry winter skin. It is a little too much in the summer but PERFECT for drier winter skin. So sensitive!!!

Love Hope, though no SPF

I got a small jar of this, wanting to try a new face cream, and I enjoyed it so much I got the 2oz jar.

Switching from acne products I'd still used as a teen was hard--they were really what was over-drying my skin and making me break out, but sorting through the plethora of adult lotions was ridiculous! There's a plus size to getting lotions in Birchbox--I get to try out some of those lotions and test what works best!

pros: Hope in a jar doesn't give me really any acne, it's light and has a nice texture, the smell is pleasant, and this little jar has lasted around 4-5 months.

cons: My nose and mouth area are sometimes a little dry still, and there's no SPF in Hope [which is a big con because I'm outside a lot]. I won't list "price" as a con because if I use the lotion every single day for 4-5 months, that's a pretty good price!
