      Comments about Philosophy Radiant & Refined Trial Kit:

      Happy that I purchased a "sample" size kit rather than jumping in feet first! Love Philosophy body products, so had great hopes for these.

      The "Purity Made Simple" facial cleanser left my skin feeling "slimy", even after rinsing several times. Thinking that I had used too much, I tried using less the next night with similar results. I quite literally had to wash my face again, with something else, to get the residue off of my skin. Used this with my Clarisonic, and the payoff was not as good as their gel cleaner's was.

      "Hope in a Jar" was an even bigger disappointment. It went on smoothly, but smelled TERRIBLE. Tried using it again the next night, and the smell was just as bad. I could not use the product long enough to give a reasonable review of its efficacy, as the smell was a deal breaker for me.

      The serum included in the set was benign enough. I have others that have better ingredients, so this part of the set was not high on my list of "must tries."

      I will be giving the remainder of these products to friends or relatives who might enjoy them, and who are not as particular about how a product smells.

        Comments about Philosophy Radiant & Refined Trial Kit:

        This product is so gentle but works! The purity face wash is an all in one! You don't have to use makeup remover. It melts away even the toughest mascara and eyeliner. The serum is nice and not greasy. The hope in a jar gives you maximum moisture with a light non greasy product.

                I use a battery facial brush to cleanse skin, it help absorb product, be consistent and always always remove make up before bed, I use a heavier moisturizer at night so my face isn't so oily during the day. I also think products work better from the same line, especially philosophy....

                            Comments about Philosophy Radiant & Refined Trial Kit:

                            This past May I had come home from school with these little tiny bumps all over my forehead (something I had never experienced in the past). I figured it was probably from stress, or maybe the change in water from moving back to New Jersey. So when my best friend gifted me a facial for a graduation present to a local Hand & Stone Spa, I decided to take the advice from the Esthetician, and purchased the product Dermlogica, in hopes of clearing these minuscule bumps I had developed.

                            I started using Dermologica over the summer, and almost instantaneously my skin began to break out. Blemishes everywhere! I MEAN EVERYWHERE, forehead, chin, cheeks, you name it. Mind you, I have been known to have a pimple or two in the past but never like this. Maybe one little annoying speck on my face once a month, but never a "breakout". I decided to stick with Dermologica for another month, and as I continued my skin was still breaking out, but even worse than before. I started to develop cystic acne, and scaring. FINALLY I decided enough, was enough, and with the help of an Ulta employee decided to take her recommendation and try out Philosophy's Radiant & Refined kit.

                            Switching to Philosophy has been the best decision I have ever made towards my skins health. Philosophy's Radiant & Refined kit is the best skincare line I have ever used (and this is coming from a girl who has used everything from over the counter products, to ProActiv, to SkinCeuticals).

                            Within a month all my cystic acne has completely disappeared. My skin is glowing. My acne scaring is starting to fade, and I am even seeing a difference in the slight expression lines I have developed next to my eyes, and on my forehead. The purity cleanser has shrunken my pores. The lotion is light and airy, yet moisturizing enough to keep my face hydrated throughout the day, and the serum makes my face feel uplifted, and tight (what a facelift would feel like if I could imagine it).

                            FINALLY my skin is back to its youthful appearance, and for that I am forever indebted to Philosophy. Thank you for giving me my skin back. I would suggest this product to anyone old or young. If you suffer from acne, wrinkles, discoloration, or dull looking skin these products are for you.

                                Yes, this kit includes Purity Made Simple 3-in-1 Cleanser For Face and Eyes, When Hope Is Not Enough Facial Firming Serum, and Hope In A Jar High-Performance Moisturizer, all of which are formulated for all skin types and safe for sensitive skin.

                                For ultra sensitive skin/rosacea, we recommend applying a small amount of product in a discreet area to ensure no irritation is experienced before applying as directed.
