    This handy small jar is not as pricey as the full size and goes a long way. Never has that shiny, thick feel....absorbs right away. Also love that hand crème.

    Comments about Philosophy Travel Size Hope In A Jar:

    I was very excited to try this, but it doesn't work as well as I had hoped. I'm going to keep trying it for a while though and hope for improvement. The worst thing about this product is the smell though. It's very chemical. I appreciate not having a heavy perfume-y smell, but I would like something clean to cover the ingredients.

      Comments about Philosophy Travel Size Hope In A Jar:

      After hearing all the hype, I just wanted to give it a go. Having a small package available is fantastic, and if you don't like it, you can give it to someone else (mother, sister, friend, etc) and not be too heartbroken over spending an arm and a leg. It is very lightweight, goes on easily, absorbs quickly, and leaves the skin looking and feeling really amazing. The only bad thing is the SMELL! It is almost a deal breaker for me. Almost :)

          Comments about Philosophy Travel Size Hope In A Jar:

          This stuff is amazing! Rule #2 of skincare: rthe cheapest products on the block aren't always the best for what you need/want. I'm a strict budget-conscious buyer, but I also have fickle skin. And living in the Midwest where it's alternatively hot and humid, or cold and dry (sometimes in the same day) doesn't help. Skeptically wading into the waters of pricier/fancier skin care, I decided to try this product out (remebering being a hit on one of Oprah's giveaway shows) and my days of cheaper ineffective alternatives are over. It feels amazing! Lightweight and yet my skin is super hydrated after using it. It leaves my skin soft and almost glowy but without the greasiness or that adolescent glitter effect. The smell is super subtle and pleasant (it doesn't compete with my perfume). I used up the travel size pretty quickly and immediately purchased the full size. About $20-$25 more than what I've normally paid for moisturizer, but for skin that's been looking and feeling as good as mine has these last couple of weeks it's totally worth it.

                I am oily and this moisturizer has assisted tremendously to the reduction of oils produced on my skin especially in my T zone area. I have been using hit product for over 2 years now and I will never stop. This was and is the best purchase I made for my skin. Were married and never getting divorced.

                Awful smell!

                Comments about Philosophy Travel Size Hope In A Jar:

                I hope they come out with a new smell. It smells like food gone bad. Too bad because I love how it feels on my skin but I would not repurchase due to the smell.

                  Was just trying something new. The smell lingers too longs (few hours), it's not a bad smell - just didn't care for it. Went back to my other cream.

                    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.
