    Comments about Philosophy Take A Deep Breath Energizing Oxygen Gel Cream:

    This is a great cooling moisturizer. It feels great after a day in the sun. However, I only use it at night since it does leave a bit of a film. I think that's what helps it moisturize so well during the night no problem since I simply wash my face in the morning anyway. But I do love the calming coolness it brings since I put it on my skin that is prone to redness from wind, sun, or even a little wine. Great product!!

      Comments about Philosophy Take A Deep Breath Energizing Oxygen Gel Cream:

      I absolutely LOVE this product! I had originally tried Hope in a Jar by Philosophy but I hated the smell, then I moved on to their Miracle Worker moisturizer which my skin would not absorb and seemed to sit on my skin for hours. I finally tried this product even after being hesitant at its low price compared to other moisturizers in this line. This one is SO GOOD! My skin absorbs it almost instantly and it makes my skin SO soft. My skin is dry, but with this product it feels glowy and beautiful. There is no overly harsh smell to me, and I love that it doesn't leave a residue on my face!

      This will definitely be the only moisturizer I continue to purchase.

            I like this more than than the other moisturizer from this company. It goes on lighter and does not have that awful smell. I am not sure that it is as moisturizing, but I don't have many wrinkles and I still break out, so it works fine for me.

                I use this product every morning after I wash my face. It's not heavy at all, not greasy, and feels very refreshing & lightweight. A little bit goes a long way. It holds very well as a base under my primer and I've noticed my makeup lasts longer than it did in comparison to a greasier moisturizer I used previously.
                Great for the summer time heat but I will undoubtedly purchase this again.

                    Excellent for oily skin!

                    I specifically bought it for nighttime because it doesn't have sunscreen. I mostly use it at night, but it's good for AM too.

                    It goes on lightweight and absorbs quickly. I can move on to primer & foundation very soon after application.

                      Comments about Philosophy Take A Deep Breath Energizing Oxygen Gel Cream:

                      I just finished my tub of Philosophys "Back to Nurture" and decided to try another moisturizer from their line, since I loved that one so much. The Take A Deep Breath left me very underwhelmed.
                      The smell is amazing and I liked the idea of the gel, rather than cream.
                      However, I tried it twice a day for a week and it didn't work for me.
                      I have very dry skin and it didn't moisturize to my standards. Very lightweight.
                      The formula actually left my skin feeling very sticky and tacky long after it dried.
                      This would probably work better for someone who doesn't want a thick or heavy cream moisturizer.

                        Right now I use Hope in a Jar. I am new to Philosophy products and I LOVE hope in a jar. However I do have combination skin and I feel like my pores stay clogged even washing my face twice a day and applying this moisturizer. My question is would this moisturizer be better for my skin? I have never used a gel moisturizer before.

                      • Q:

                        I currently use clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel but have been unhappy with it lately. My skin feels tight and dry after use. Would you recommend this product or the Bareminerals purely nourishing moisturizer? I'm late 20's, mostly dry to normal skin with occasional hormonal breakouts. I use the bareminerals deep cleansing foam or purity made simple as cleansers.

                          This product is lightweight and features a silky gel-cream texture. It is ideal for all skin types including combination/dry skin and is perfect for skin of any age. It both hydrates and detoxifies, so it works wonderfully for anyone with skin prone to breakouts.
