                    I recieved a gift set of philosophy products which I love and have bought tons since. I love the hope in a jar at first, but I'm too nervous to use it since it has a green tinge. Is this normal?

                      we appreciate your question. the hope in a jar color can vary from a pure white to a buttercream color due to the natural ingredients.

                    Will this tighten your pores? Also I have mild eczema, will this help?

                    • Brand Expert

                      A:

                      because eczema is a diagnosed skin condition, we always recommend that you check with your physician before using any new products. hope in a jar moisturizer does contain lactic acid, which will offer gentle exfoliation and may help to minimize the appearance of pores.

                      hope in a jar is made with a natural essential lavender oil. the lavender oil is what creates the distinct scent that you may have noticed. the scent will slowly fade after application.
