            I am a faithful user of Renewed Hope in a Jar (same product just with an SPF) and wanted to save a few dollars so I tried the Hope in a Jar instead. Same absorbency and feeling as the renewed, but the smell was AWFUL!!! It was like burnt plastic. I have tried to get over it, but even after a full week of use, it is gross. I love everything else about the product, though. I emailed Philosophy directly about it, so we will see what becomes of it. I hope it is a fluke!

                I just bought this yesterday and tried it for the first time this morning. It goes on smoothly and absorbs quickly. Nice smell. Right now it's a tad greasy but I think it may be do to my skin being dehydrated. I can deal with that until my skin rehydrates with the water I'm drinking. I love the way it makes my skin look combined with my other skincare products. I can understand the hype of this product now. I love Purity by this brand so I'm glad I found something else I love as well!

                  I got this in one of those free gift sets you get when you purchase Philosophy products. This is my first time using it, and it smells awful! It's a nice moisturizer and it has feels very hydrating on the face. I just can't get over the smell. After it has been sitting on my face for two hours it still hasn't gone away. If you're someone the smells don't bother then I think it's a great product. If you're sensitive to smells I would stay clear of this product. There are many other moisturizers out there that work just as well or better; and don't have that terrible smell.
