Not what I expected!

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.

Game Changer!

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.

Great 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.

No Comparison

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.

Oh but the smell!

I am a big fan of philosophy products, and so many of their products feel and smell amazing. I really wanted to love this but just couldn't get over the smell. Its almost a plasticky scent, and pretty strong. If I put it on at night right before bed, I can smell it on my pillowcase the next morning. Fragrance hasn't deterred me from using many products but its deterred me from using this.

My standard
Purchased

I have used this moisturizer for the last 10 years and every time I have the horrible idea that I'm going to switch things up i regret it and come back to this one.

Light in texture, easily layers under or over other serums and treatments.

Can't live without!

I have tried so many skin care lines from drug store to Murad, Clinique, Estée Lauder and I cannot live without this moisturizer! I use it both day and night (I do not care for the Hope in a Jar Night). This moisturizer has smoothed out my skin, lightened an age spot I have on my cheek, and just over all has brightened my complexion. I will continue to buy this product as long as Philosophy makes it!
