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

        I use this day and night. Normally I have somewhat oily skin but this doesn't make my face shiny at all! It's the perfect consistency and has a nice light smell.

          I have been impressed with Philosophy products for a long time. I use all three of these trial products and this trial kit is a great value and great sizes for travel. The serum is awesome, and I use the Turbo Booster C along with it. The cleanser and moisturizer are excellent as well. I have oily skin and these products are the best I have found yet for my skin.

            Comments about Philosophy Radiant & Refined Trial Kit:

            The three products work well together. The cleanser takes off the toughest waterproof makeup without stinging the eyes. The serum is light and anti aging. The moisturizer is a bit heavy for my oily skin so I just a little, though it exfoliates well that my dark acne marks are fading after using these products for one week. The serum and moisturizer have an unpleasant fragrance but it fades quickly. I have aging, oily, acne prone, pigmented skin and these products have improved my skin condition.

              I have always bought products based on their price. I thought spending a lot on skin care products was just a sham, until I gave in and tried the philosophy. I was pretty impressed and couldn't believe what a difference it made my skin feel. I will continue to use this line from now on. I can't wait to try their other products!

                I purchased this set to go in my carry on for our last vacation.

                I have used Philosophy in the past so I knew I'd have great results! I love the clean, light fragrance of the cleanser (my favorite). All really great products!

                      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.
