I love this product!

This was the first philosophy product I ever bought a few years back and it got me hooked. It left my skin feeling unbelievably soft, but without the sticky, gooey or even greasy feeling a lot of moisturizers leave behind. Definitely would recommend this product.

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.

Great Moisturizer, terrible smell

I really LOVE the way this makes my face feel after using it. Before I read the description I even told my husband, "I love the way this feels, its as though it melts into my skin." However, I HATE the smell. You'd think, philosophy a brand with some pretty awesome smelling stuff could make their daily face moisturizer smell at least decent with a natural essential oil or something. I probably won't buy this stuff again or at least try some other things since this one doesn't smell great.

Love this stuff!

I love philosophy products, especially hope in a jar. I use it on my face and neck after showering. I like that the smell it subtle and not too overwhelming. It leaves my skin feeling soft, smooth and moisturized.

No break outs

One of the few moisturizers that doesn't make me break out! Love it! It also smells good and feels very moisturizing

Works well, but expensive

I like this product, but I just don't think it's worth the price. It feels nice on my skin and is moisturizing, but other products work just as well for a fraction of the price.

Just okay

This product works decently well, but it didn't reach the high expectations I had had for it. I like the packaging, but the product itself isn't excellent. It smells a little funny and doesn't outperform competitors to the degree I would expect given the price.

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!!!
