    Comments about Philosophy Hope In a Jar:

    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!

        closest thing to a perfect moisturizer i've ever found. Only bad thing is that the smell is awful. Other than that, i've never found anything that works so well for my dry skin as well as improving the overall texture and tone. I cant afford it right now but once i can i'm looking forward to perfect skin again!

        I have been using this product for years and love it. Have sensitive and dry skin and it works great.When i bought more in June, it had a terrible smell. exchanged it for another and it wasn't as strong smell so brought it home,it continues to get worse. I am very sad because now i am going to have to find a new product, and i loved this one so much.

                Comments about Philosophy Hope In a Jar:

                I would use this moisturizer in the morning after washing my face before I applied my makeup. First, the smell is absolutely terrible. I used this for a month and really tried to like it but couldn't get past the smell. Also, this moisturizer has such a greasy feeling that lasts all day.

                          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.

                            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.
