Comments about Philosophy Hope In a Jar:

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!

Comments about Philosophy Hope In a Jar:

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 love this one better than the new one, this has a better texture to it and a little goes a long way, I have very dry skin and patches of excema, but once I started using this it was gone completely within 1-2 days!

                          • Q:

                            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?

                              we appreciate your question. the hope in a jar color can vary from a pure white to a buttercream color due to the natural ingredients.

                              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.

                              Hope in a Jar provides lightweight moisture, gentle exfoliation, and antioxidant protection against premature aging, while Miracle Worker provides richer moisture and targets more advanced signs of aging with the highest level of antioxidants of any Philosophy moisturizer.
