Comments about Philosophy Hope In A Jar:

I first received a sample size like it so much I decided to buy a larger portion so I purchased the 4 oz. size container about a year ago and still haven't used it all. I have oily skin and this has been awesome. It absorbs quickly and doesn't make my face greasy. People have been complaining about the smell but I don't mind it, just smells like normal face cream. You have to be careful around the eyes though because if it creeps too close it will burn your eyes a bit but it isn't an eye cream so I guess if you use it as instructed you'll be okay. After I started using it regularly my face looked noticeably better, my friend even pointed out how much healthier my face had looked since I started using it. I've been very happy with it so far and don't even see a need to try another brand when this one runs out.

        I use this product morning and night. It has a light feel to it and a little product goes a long way. Use it all over face and neck. It doesn't really have a smell & moisturizes well. I bought this to be proactive in my anti-aging routine.

            Comments about Philosophy Hope In A Jar:

            I put this product on the night before and when I woke up to put on makeup, my skin was peeling. I stroked very lightly acrossed my face and there was rolled up pieces of dried skin. My skin is sensitive but I had no idea it could get so irritated. The product consistency was very watery as well. I got it as a Christmas present and I was very happy to try it out, but it left my skin red and dry.

            It's great, but it smells

            I love philosophy products. This moisturizer is great. It has a whipped texture and it feels light on my skin.
            But the smell is horrible. Also, some of the product dried on the inside of the lid ??

                Love this product! I have been using it for years. When I switched from Clinique products to Philosophy my mom actually asked me one day if I was using something different on my face because my skin looked so great! That was confirmation for me, plus I love the way it makes my skin feel.

                Comments about Philosophy Hope In A Jar:

                I'm 35 years old with combination skin that's on the dry side (especially in the winter). I am a beauty junkie and I love trying new skin care products! I had heard so much about this face cream that I had to give it a try.
                It definitely feels great on your skin. It's a lightweight formula so a little goes a long way. I like the feel of it and it definitely makes my skin look and feel soft and glowy. However, the smell is HORRIBLE!
                It's like a vegetal sulphiric smell. I thought I could get over it at first as I put it on before bed, but even my husband walked in the bathroom and said "what is that smell?!"
                Needless to say, I won't be purchasing any more of this product due to that fact alone. And I'm not even very sensitive to smell. It's really bad.
