Best Moisturizer I've tried!

I love philosophy products even though they can be on the pricey side but this one is completely worth it! It's very moisturizing without feeling heavy and absorbs quickly. With these cold Minnesota winters I'm not sure how I ever survived without it. Definitely recommend!!

LOVE!

This moisturizer is AMAZING for my oily skin. It gives just enough moisture back to my skin with out leaving an oily residue. It also absorbs into my skin fairly fast to others that I have tried. I've recommended this product to my friends before and they have also fallen in love with it.

Love Philosophy
Purchased

I have used Philosophy products in the past and have always been impressed. This moisturizer really soaks in but doesn't leave my skin feeling oily or thick. It feels so light weight but gets the job done! Even my dry skin from the north winter is hydrated with this moisturizer.

Refreshing
Purchased

I love the way this quickly gets absorbed into my skin. It does give my face a nice glow and reduces the redness. However I can not wear it under makeup I find my skin needs more moisture during the day. When I use this as a moisturizer before makeup I find my makeup flakes & cracks. I love it as a night time moisturizer! I will be buying it again.

Love it!
Purchased

This product has been a staple in my beauty routine for a year now - it is a fantastic moisturizer for both day and night. It is very light and leaves your skin feeling hydrated and refreshed. It keeps my skin soft and smooth year round (even in the dry, harsh winter weather) and doesn't cause breakouts.

Light and Hydrating!
Purchased

I love how light this moisturizer feels on my face while I'm putting it on and letting my face soak it all up. Most other moisturizers feel heavy despite their claims so this is a godsend and is now part of my daily and nightly skincare routine.

Good, but not great
Purchased

I liked the product. It has a nice smell and texture and made my skin soft. However, for the price I can't say it was worth it since other much less expensive moisturizers provided the same outcome. I didn't notice a real difference in my skin after use.

Great to control oil

I have oily skin and this moisturizer paired with the gel purity cleanser is wonderful. Its super light and not oily at all. I live in a city with tons of pollution everyday and I feel that this product saves my skin. Highly recommend!
