Comments about Philosophy Hope In A Jar A To Z Cream:

This is the one thing I can not go without! This is my 2nd tube and it lasts 3+ months. I use it very lightly over my face, mostly around eyes and blemishes, but rub in all over. Even if I don't wear makeup that day, I at least use this product and lipstick, also using the lipstick as a blush, curl my eyelashes and I'm good to go! This is something that I will definitely use forever!!! It brings a more youthful look and glow and being 50, it is sooooo worth it!

Comments about Philosophy Hope In A Jar A To Z Cream:

I had to move to this product because dermalogica really messed up their tinted moisturizer. Both products are spf 20 but both have a very orange tint and are very thick and heavy which, for me, causes breakouts. I like this product best but wish both manufacturers would try to get the tint a bit more neutral and not so heavy on an "orange" tint.

      I use this just about daily. If I leave the house in nothing else but this, it's enough that I get compliments on my skin and how nice it looks. It's great for day-time looks and natural looks.
      I've noticed that it doesn't cause me to break out like other products have in the past and a little bit of this goes a loooooooong way :-)

          I'm always looking for better products but have found my go to summer makeup. I switch to a more hydrating makeup in the winter or wear this with moisturizer for lighter coverage as my skin needs protection again PA winters. I just finished the tube from last summer! I use a damp beauty sponge and love that it doesn't show much of my fine lines...or accentuate them as heavier makeup does. I am 65 and it keeps my skin looking and feeling healthy.

              I love the way the product goes on but the color isn't quite right for me. I mix some "pinkish brightener", Benefits High Beam in and it helps.

                  You can apply this product to bare or moisturized skin. If you're using it with an additional moisturizer, we recommend applying it over your moisturizer for best results.
