                Comments about Philosophy Hope In a Jar:

                I have very sensitive/reactive skin and this is the only moisturizer I have found that does not break me out. I use it morning and night after washing with Cetaphil cleanser and my skin looks better than it has in years. I am not sure if it will be moisturizing enough for winter months so we'll see.

                  I love how this is lightweight, but still moisturizes well. I am in the 50+ category, and need a good moisturizer that absorbs, but has a lasting effect. Hope in a Jar works great under makeup. I have replenished this product in my arsenal several times, so it is a staple for me!

                      I know the smell is somewhat off putting, but it is worth the moisture this product provides. I use it 2x a day and when I started using it I noticed results immediately. Absolutely love the texture of it.

                        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:

                          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.

                          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.
