      Comments about Philosophy Radiant & Refined Trial Kit:

      Use daily facial cleanser at night followed by facial firming serum (When Hope Is Not Enough), then Hope in a Jar moisturizer. In AM use the exfoliating scrub followed by Hope in a Jar. Product is mild, yet effective. Clean pleasant scent, no heavy perfume or chemical odor. Thinking about using other products such as makeup and sunscreen. Only down side is cost, but you don't use much to get job done, and I'd rather pay a little more for a product that works, than buy a variety of cheaper products that don't. My skin has not looked this good in years. Thank you Philosophy for the great products.

      I've used Philosophy for a few years now! It helps with fine lines, and the purity is an AMAZING cleaner that works AMAZING too get off makeup.You actually feel like your face is clean without using a ton of product. My 15 year old daughter just started using this starter back and her skin is almost completely clear in 3 weeks! The Hope in a jar is a GREAT moisturizer. I love this stuff and can't wait to try Renewed hope! And the Purity mask!

          This product worked well but caused my face to break out in a rash. I don't consider my skin to be sensative.

            Comments about Philosophy Radiant & Refined Trial Kit:

            I bought this product because I have sensitive, acne prone skin, and I needed more moisturizer since I was starting to run out of the one I had at home (another brand). The sales woman told me Philosophy's Hope in a Jar was good for sensitive skin. I am on a budget when it comes to products that I have never tried before, so instead of buying the moisturizer by itself, I bought it in this "kit" since it also came with the face wash and serum.

            I loved the face wash. I forget what it smelled like, but it wasn't a strong scent. It cleaned well and left no residue.

            The serum was good. It didn't do any magic, but I think it helped to even out some of my unevenness in my skin color. I can't say if it was effective or not because I only used it for a short while.

            The only reason I returned the kit was because of the moisturizer. It smells like plastic and spoiled milk. If the smell wore away after 10 minutes, I wouldn't mind, but it would last all day. Also, it didn't really moisturize my face. I would rub it in and it absorbed QUICKLY, but there was no moisture/hydration. The bad thing is that it also broke me out. My acne is usually mild (most bumps are usually super small). But after using this, I started to get dozens of medium to large sized clusters of bumps on my temples and cheeks. Some were on my jawline. They were red, hard, and they HURT! It had to be the moisturizer because once I started using my roommate's moisturizer, the acne stopped spreading/growing.

            The breakouts are starting to go away now after gentle exfoliation, my homemade face mask, toning, and using a glycolic acid lotion (another brand). But, I have large spots of hyperpigmentation now that I didn't have before.

            ....So, if you have acne prone skin be careful using the Hope in a Jar moisturizer. :p

                A:

                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.
