                Comments about Philosophy Hope In a Jar:

                I used this for about 3 months and wasn't nearly as impressed with it as what I had hoped to be. It is a decent moisturizer, not greasy or sticky on the skin at all, and smells incredible. But I had absolutely no noticeable changes in my skin after using this. Not immediately or even after 3 months of regular use. I would definitely recommend this to someone looking for a light, every day moisturizer but not to anyone wanting to see some real improvements in their skin.

                    A:

                    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.

                    A:

                    This product's features & benefits include:
                    - Contains the ester of lactic acid for exfoliation to help promote smooth, healthy-looking skin
                    - Contains beta-glucan to help give your skin a healthy, rosy glow
                    - High-performance moisturizer with antioxidants to help protect skin against environmental attack

                    The lactic acid within this formula should also help to diminish scarring over time. You should experience improved skin texture and hydration after the first use, and this product will work to even skin tone with regular use over time.

                    This product is formulated for all skin types including sensitive skin and blemish-prone skin. For rosacea/ultra sensitive skin, we recommend consulting your physician prior to use or conducting a patch test (apply the product on a discreet area of skin) to ensure you experience no adverse reaction before applying as directed.
