Most Helpful Positive Review Out darn spot!
I've been using strictly philosophy products for 10 years and love almost everything (sorry, Miracle Worker is too heavy for me). I've had a small dry patch on my cheek that nothing would ever get rid of until I started using Renewed Hope in a Jar overnight moisturizer and Renewed Hope in a Jar daytime moisturizer. Now it's shrinking daily and almost gone!
Most Helpful Critical Review Clogged pores and made me break out
I was looking for a new nighttime moisturizer because I was waking up with extremely dry and flaky skin. I liked a lot of other Philosophy products, so I thought I would give this a shot.
My skin type is fair, dry and very sensitive with some large pores.
I tried this out for a full week. The first thing I noticed is it applied extremely tacky and heavy. It never fully absorbed even though I was only using a pea sized amount of product for my face and neck. My pores were noticeably larger and clogged after three days. Also, after three days I broke out all over my nose and chin. I continued use thinking it may have been something I ate, or it was that time of the month. After a full seven days I still had pimples with new eruptions. I couldn't take it so I stopped use. This past week and a half I went back to my old moisturizer routine; I still have the dry skin in the morning, but all of my pimples have subsided again and now I have to get rid of a couple new scars...
long story short; I started my week with no pimples and a bit of texture. Three days later = clogged pores and pimples.

I use it twice daily, even though it is supposedly a nighttime moisturizer, I have never used a better product on my face.
Made me breakout
Kittykat from Los Alamitos
At first I really liked this moisturizer. It made my skin really soft & absorbed well BUT my whole forehead started to break out & my chin the more I used it. Highly disappointed ended up returning.
Love this product
May from Houston, TX
I used this about 4 nights a week. It leaves my skin very hydrated. I only use a very small amount. Ahem! The price is up there, but I enjoy wearing this so much and I will definitely purchase again. I use renewed hope in a jar day time cream under my make up and I don't let my skin get dry. Some mornings after wearing this overnight cream, I only rinse my face with cold water and go! I would recommend this more so for 30 year olds and above. If you are younger I would recommend the yellow purity moisturizer as it is cheaper and I think it will do the same work.

Received this product as a free sample and it was absolutely AMAZING!! THANK YOU!!
Doc Dee from West Coast
Recently realized that I truly needed something to revive my skin at night and I am very happy with this product. It doesn't take much, a little goes a long way. Love the scent, for me it's another step in winding down the day. This is one of a few steps of my Philosophy regimen that has made a difference.

Couldn't find where to comment. I live idea of these products. But it's too expensive for me
The ONLY moisturizer I use!
Mama Steph from Wisconsin
LOVE the Philosophy line! I've been using it for over 10 years... I'm over 50 & my skin definitely doesn't show my age!
This is my 3rd jar!

I've been using this product for probably just over a year and I'm not planning on changing any time soon. I have pretty dry skin, and this stuff feels great!! I would definitely recommend!
Best night cream!
jessie73 from Cleveland
I have very picky and sensitive skin. I don't like using alot of products. I just simply exfoliate in the morning followed by Hope in a Jar SPF then wash in the evening with Purity followed by this moisturizer. It's simply the best! My skin loves it!
I would buy it again
Suzie from Houston, TX
A little goes a long way and it leaves my skin feel soft and supple. I like it.
Perfect after a long day
Marti555 from Buffalo
I cannot go a day without this product!
It's perfect for making bags under your eyes look less puffy
Great night cream
Karla from Bakersfield, CA
I use this as my night cream. It works great with my other face products. I wash my face, tone, add my night serum, (estee lauder night repair), my eye cream, and then moisturize with this night cream. I wake up with nice hydrated beautiful skin. It's not greasy. Love it!!!
Can't believe i didnt know about this
Diana and Girls from El Mirage Arizona
I've been using renewed hope in a jar day and night for years. Just recently I ordered rhiaj night. Oh my goodness.....what a difference this has made in my skin. I feel like just after a couple nights of using this night cream, my skin looks smoother, softer more plump and i feel like i just look like a younger me. My husband says my skin looks so pretty and young. So greatful I found this product. I will never go without. Thanks Philosophy for all your products. One Beautiful Person at a Time.
my skin is recharged overnight!
tangerine72 from Fort Worth, TX
I am loving this night cream and my skin is very happy! It hydrates, plumps and overall gives my face and neck a smoother and more supple feeling and appearance. I love the way I look in the morning after this has soaked into my skin overnight. Ahhhhh! YES!
Wanted to love it, but...
MsDD from undisclosed
Nice packaging, and clean scent. Wanted to love it, but it felt a bit too heavy and greasy. It made my skin break out in whiteheads, which disappeared when I stopped using it. It might work well for others.
Best overnight moisturizer!
Clamb1959 from Arizona
I have been using this product for quite a while and I love the feel of my skin when I put it on. It keeps my skin hydrated all night.
Strong Scent, Moisturizes Well

I have rosacea and this has given me little papules. I bought this on recommendation from a good friend who also has sensitive skin. She swears by it.
Oliveoil from undisclosed
Been using this for a month now and I am loving everything about it. I think it's doing what it claims. This is my first night cream and I never want to be without it. Skin feels and looks great.
mindy823 from Texas
I've been using this for about a month and I can really tell the difference. I live in a dry climate and my forehead doesn't peel after I wash it at night like it used to.
Love ths Night Cream!!
AprilJ from Nebraska
This night cream is amazing! A little bit goes a long ways and it smells wonderful!!! It's thicker than the day cream but goes on like butter and makes my face feels smooth and hydrated in the morning!
mmm12 from Michigan
Getting down to the bottom of the jar so trying to ration myself but it smells soooo good. Not even sure if it makes that much of a difference on my skin but will continue to buy for the scent alone. My face does feel moisturized when I wake up and I can feel it still on my skin before I shower.
Leeninyc from New York
I've been using this for over a year and my pores are smaller and my lines are gone! It's refreshing and light and I'm thankful it's accessible!
KH8412 from Texas
I use this product every night. It goes on thicker than the day time renewed hope in a jar product but does not feel like it is clogging my pores.
Very thick and smells great
Runner nat from Milwaukee wi
I've liked this product as I find that the consistency is unique compared to other moisturizers. It is very thick and for that reason it doesn't spread super well and you need to use more. That being said, if does last all night and when I wash my face in the morning I can feel it rinsing off. My skin feels great after using and is not oily. Four stars only for the price point is high considering how quickly I go through the jar.
Waited too long to try this
ellimacj from Downey, CA
Renewed hope in a jar smells so great. My nightly ritual entails the shower. I remove my make up with a make up remover cloth. Then scrub with an oil free acne wash foaming scrub. After I dab dry my face, I turn to this philosophy overnight cream. Love it! It makes my skin feel and smell so good. It hasn't been oily on my pillow, clothes, etc. it seems to have improved the darkness of my skin that has been happening as a result of the recent Quarantine. My pores are getting smaller ever so slowly, but I suppose it will take a few more weeks to see major improvement. I have only had this first ever jar for approximately two weeks now. It's a bit more than I honestly would like to pay, but it has been worth it thus far since a little bit goes a long way on my face. I am a fan.
