      The smell of this product made me nauseous. It seemed watery and didn't provide moisture for my skin.

        Sun screen gives me hives. This product is one of a few moisturizers that does not double as a sun screen which is why I first bought it. I like the way it makes my skin feel and is great under makeup.

                  My husband and I both tried this line and could not use it. We are both in our 50's and have oily combination skin. Worst break-outs either of us have had since high school .. ZIT CITY!!!

                  Comments about Philosophy Hope in a Jar:

                  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!
