      Comments about Philosophy Travel Size Hope In a Jar:

      I purchased the travel size to try this moisturizer. I think it would work well for someone with normal to dry skin. I have extremely dry skin (eczema) so while it applies well, it doesn't last. I have to reapply throughout the day. If your skin is dryer than most purchase the travel size for $15 first to see how it works for you. I plan to try this again in the spring/summer when I don't need a heavy moisturizer.

        Comments about Philosophy Travel Size Hope In a Jar:

        I use Purity by Philosophy as my face wash and was having issues finding a good moisturizer that wasn't too heavy but would help my dry winter skin. I thought, "Why not try something in the same line? I hear the reviews are good." Plus it was the travel size, I wasn't going to be spending a fortune on a bigger size to then not like it after. However, I don't think I could have made a better choice. The smell was a little off putting at first, and for a little bit I thought I had made a mistake. But after a few uses I REALLY liked the way it made my skin feel and I've even gotten used to the smell (in case you are worried about the smell, it does not linger). Also, although it is travel size, since you don't need to use a lot to cover your whole face (like maybe a nickle/dime size dab), it will last you awhile. Over all I'll definitely be buying the bigger size when this one runs out.

          I think this is a good daily moisturizer, but I think it is overpriced for the amount you get in the jar.

            Comments about Philosophy Travel Size Hope In a Jar:

            I road trip a lot throughout the year, and I use that as time to test out products that I might want to add to my regular regimen. Samples or travel sizes are perfect of this very reason! I slathered on Hope In A Jar all over my face and neck after using my regular cleanser from Neutrogena in the shower with my spin scrubbing brush. I typically use the matching Neutrogena moisturizer with SPF afterward, but I'm not sure if I just got an old bottle or what but it was super runny this go around so I wasn't as happy with it ergo I decided to try HIAJ. I'm addicted. No messy greasy feeling afterward. I kept using it after my trip and it's cleared up my skin where I usually breakout on my chin which means I might also be switching cleansers as well within the same brand. This is pricey, and I have normal to dry skin on my face but after my experience this seems totally worth it! If you have normal skin with only a few breakouts here and there, this is something I highly recommend you try.

              Comments about Philosophy Travel Size Hope In a Jar:

              Face lotion is the ultimate, most important part of my daily routine. I use it twice a day and have gone through various brands and types of daily face moisturizers and this is the best by far. I love the faint lavender smell and how smooth it goes on. I have noticed a vast improvement in my skin since I started using it every day. My skin actually gets less greasy throughout the day, I have less acne, and my face just feels generally softer and smoother. The price is steep, but if you're like me and only spend big money on a few quality staples, I highly suggest you make this one of them.

                Great product but sort of pricey and smells a little different than I'm used to I guess. Also always feels like I need to apply more and more... none the less a great product though!

                  I purchased this product because my skin was really getting dried out from the cold winter weather all of the great reviews had me hopeful. However, minutes after putting it on my daughter said, "yuck what is that smell? It smells like the plastic skin on a New baby doll." By gosh - she's right! I tried one last time to use it but the scent sent this product to the garbage!

                    I know this product is nourishing but is it also clarifying? Does it help clear your skin at all?

                      A:

                      This moisturizer contains a form of lactic acid (AHA) to provide light exfoliation and boost cellular renewal to help fade discoloration. This light exfoliation also helps to keep pores clear of clogging debris to help prevent breakouts.
