            This smells like straight up wet dog, the smell doesn't last too long but I would recommend you to buy the $15 travel size and see how you like it. It's a great product. Minus that smell

            I used this product along with hope in a jar night cream. It worked really well, the only thing I could complain about is the smell. I'm not sure if it had expired, but when I pUT it on it smelled like wet dog.

                • Q:

                  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?

                    A:

                    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?

                    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.

                    A:

                    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.

                    Hope in a Jar provides lightweight moisture, gentle exfoliation, and antioxidant protection against premature aging, while Miracle Worker provides richer moisture and targets more advanced signs of aging with the highest level of antioxidants of any Philosophy moisturizer.

                    A:

                    This product's features & benefits include:
                    - Contains the ester of lactic acid for exfoliation to help promote smooth, healthy-looking skin
                    - Contains beta-glucan to help give your skin a healthy, rosy glow
                    - High-performance moisturizer with antioxidants to help protect skin against environmental attack

                    The lactic acid within this formula should also help to diminish scarring over time. You should experience improved skin texture and hydration after the first use, and this product will work to even skin tone with regular use over time.

                    This product is formulated for all skin types including sensitive skin and blemish-prone skin. For rosacea/ultra sensitive skin, we recommend consulting your physician prior to use or conducting a patch test (apply the product on a discreet area of skin) to ensure you experience no adverse reaction before applying as directed.
