    I love the choice of coverage with this foundation. Sometimes I want to conceal my freckles, other times I want to let them shine :) It goes on smoothly, especially if you use a primer first. It lasts all day and doesn't feel heavy.

    I returned it because it was too lightweight. I was wanting more of a full coverage foundation, which I was told it was. It helped minimize my pores.

      Comments about Philosophy Hope In A Jar Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

      I love this product! I have dry skin that ALWAYS looks flaky when I have foundation on. Some products I've tried made it a few hours without me looking flaky, but this product is amazing!!!!! It goes on so smooth and feels so light, but looks like full coverage. It keeps my skin hydrated all day and I NEVER look flaky, I use primer so I never have an issue with creasing.
      From Years of experience, the key to dry skin looking its best with foundation is a good cleansing regime including exfoliation and moisturization.

        Comments about Philosophy Hope In A Jar Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

        Overall I really enjoy this product. It builds nicely for more coverage, but initially is a nice light/natural look.
        It definitely has a scent- so look out for that if you are sensitive.
        Sometimes I think I get a little shiny when I wear it, but I have combination/dry skin and it has really been nice to wear.
        I think the bottle goes quickly, probably because you need some more product to work up to full coverage

          Comments about Philosophy Hope In A Jar Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

          The foundation tones run a bit lighter than normal foundations. I normally would wear light-fair, but in this I wear a skin tone 5-6. It feels great on my dry skin, and I can tell a difference in wearing it. My skin tone has softened, and I haven't had any issues with break outs.

              I had been a loyal Benefit Foundation user until I discovered Philosophy foundation. It is like it was made for my skin shade/tone. It's the only makeup that actually makes my skin look & feel better during and after wearing. Philosophy girl for life! Worth the price, last a long time & excellent coverage.

                It's rare that when applying a makeup, you feel like you're doing your skin a favor. This makeup is like that. The color match is perfect and the result is luminous.

                  • Q:

                    I have been using the Philosophy Hope in a Jar moisturizer and I really love that. I was using the Bare Minerals powder foundation. I have really dry skin, I have redness and I am also in my 40's. Will this foundation flake on me or settle into my lines and will I need to use an additional product for my redness and my pores?

                      A:

                      You can achieve medium coverage with either product. To address the signs of aging, we suggest using Miracle Worker Foundation, which features an anti-aging formula to help improve radiance and tone, even after you take it off, and to visibly take up to 5 years off your complexion!

                  • Q:

                    I currently use clinique's even better foundation in creamwhip #14. Which color in this product would replace my clinique formula? I have issues with foundation settling into the lines around my eyes making them more pronounced. Will this product do that? If so, would there be a better option for me from the philosophy line?

                      because eczema is a diagnosed skin condition, we always recommend that you check with your physician before using any new products.

                    I love this product. But I have really red undertones and I can just never get enough coverage with just the foundation. Is there another product that I can use to get rid of that? I use dermablend under my foundation right now but it's a little heavy so is there anything light weight? THANKS!
