      Comments about Philosophy Take a Deep Breath SPF 30:

      I found the other Philosophy moisturizers to be a bit too heavy for daytime use, and I wanted something that had SPF. Take a Deep Breath seemed like the obvious choice, and it has been a winner. Except for the truly awful packaging.

      As has been noted by other reviewers, the tube allows for WAY too much product to come out, and sure, I've learned how to work around that, but at this price point, I shouldn't be making work-arounds. (By the way, I simply store it and open it upside down. I've found that to be effective. Go figure.)

      Love this stuff, but I'm honestly considering a switch to something that has a tube that doesn't require a ~process~ when it's time to apply.

        Comments about Philosophy Take a Deep Breath SPF 30:

        I use Purity Cleanser, When Hope is not Enough Serum, followed by Hope In A Jar moisturizer daily and I love all of these products. My skin looks and feels so much healthier after using this regimen. I ordered this in hopes of replacing my Hope In A Jar moisturizer which is almost out, only because I wanted something with sunscreen.
        I've tried the Take a Deep Breath product twice. The first time, I used it following the Purity cleanser and the Serum, and my cheeks turned red and blotchy. I tried it again a couple of days later and instead used it directly after cleansing, skipping the serum. I again got red blotches all over my cheeks. This product doesn't work for me. I plan on exchanging it for some of my tried and true Hope In a Jar... or maybe some of the new Renewed Hope I a Jar ;)

                  I have combination skin. My T zone is very oily and I use this product in that area twice a day to replinish moisture without making my skin slick. The added benefit of SPF 30 is important to me as I am in the sun a great deal.

                    I have used this product for a week now and have been very impressed. It does everything I need it too, the only drawback is the packaging. Due to the consistancy the product tends to run out of the tube. I would love to see this in a pump, regardless I will continue to use the product.

                      Great for a good daily sunscreen that doesn't have that overpowering odor. Absorbs nicely.

                        I have searched long and hard for a face lotion with at least SPF 30, but they always seem greasy and have an unpleasant smell. But not this one. I absolutely love it, especially for summer use. And it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. I only wish the it came in a bigger tube.

                          My skin is acne prone so I have to battle oily skin as well as dry skin because of the acne fighting products I already use cause dryness. I needed a moisturizer for everyday use that won't make my skin oily even more but still hydrate my face sufficiently. Really tricky to do, but Take a Deep Breath works perfectly! It's very light, not heavy at all. Plus BONUS, it has SPF 30 so I'm protected from the sun, which also is the enemy of acne fighting products so this product does double duty for me!
