    My husband uses this, not overly scented (or he wouldn't use it)and leaves his face so soft. When he's not looking my daughter and I sneak it! A little pricier than I'd care for but it seems like its going to last a long time

        I have tried so many products and this is the first one I've used that moisturized without leaving my face feeling greasy or dry after a few hours. A little goes a long way and a jar lasts several months.

        I love this stuff it helps control the oil on my face from what I've seen which I've never found anything like that. But the smell is sooo terrible!

        Comments about Philosophy Hope In a Jar:

        I love this moisturizer, for daily daytime use. It's light but not so light that it doesn't moisturize, and it isn't greasy or heavy. I wouldn't recommend it if you have winter dryness issues (it isn't robust enough for that) but it's great as a daily, go-to primer before applying foundation.

        I use twice daily after cleansing. I found I need to apply sparingly for great results. I couldn't be happier with this moisturizing product.

                Will this tighten your pores? Also I have mild eczema, will this help?

                • Brand Expert

                  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.

                  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.
