    Comments about Philosophy Hope In a Jar:

    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!

      Comments about Philosophy Hope In a Jar:

      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.

          Comments about Philosophy Hope In a Jar:

          It does the job, but I cannot stand the smell. My skin is sensitive to smell so after using it for two days it did break me out. Cannot return it since I threw away the box and my receipt so I'm stuck finishing it. I recommend miracle worker.

            Love love this product. Use it twice daily every day. I have very dry skin and this feels so good on it. Light, yet effective....never irritating. Hope they continue making this product. Don't care for the heavier new "hopes" they are putting out also.
