Comments about Philosophy Hope In A Jar:

When I first saw this I was SHOCKED at how much it was, I even felt like I was in a drunken haze when I brought it to the register, but after trying so many moisturizers that irritated my sensitive skin, I thought I'd give it a fighting chance. I've been using it for about a week and I've noticed a difference in softness and blemishes reduced. You only need a little, so the jar with last quite a while. I really don't think it lives up to all the hype though and I'll probably continue to look elsewhere, probably only purchasing it as a last resort.

      Used this before a few years ago. Tried again after talking to a girl that works there that loves the brand. I do really like it and it hasn't made me break out any more than my previous moisturizer. Definitely feel a difference in my skin since I started using it.

            I have used this product for a long time. Occasionally I try something new but always return to this for daily use under make up and night time use during the summer. As I get older I may have to go to heavier product but I will stay w Philosophy. Love it.

              Comments about Philosophy Hope In A Jar:

              This has absolutely saved my skin! I have very flaky and dry skin, along with sensitivity. Hope in a jar has transformed my skin to dewy and flawless. I love it. And all the "bad smell" comments are confusing..I think the smell is very light and clean, not much different than the smell of any other 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.
