Comments about Philosophy Hope In A Jar Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

The tone matched the skin on the wrist but did not look good on my ruddy face. Also made my face very dry looking. I don't think she had the shade she tried on my wrist so sold me the next best color.

Comments about Philosophy Hope In A Jar Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

Rarely do I find a foundation that I love so much, I refuse to run out of. This has been my go to foundation for several years. It's perfect t for days when my skin needs a breather from all of the full coverage, mask like makeup I typically use. It's bulidable and breathable. Feels more like skincare than foundation but provides me with a nice even skin tone. I am obsessed with this foundation.

                I used to use Clinique barely there, but it was discontinued; after trying many different brands that did not suit me, I tried Philosophy Hope in a Jar #5. It is a perfect texture and neutral color. Love it better than Clinique.
