Most Helpful Positive Review Won me back
I was a huge philosophy fan for years, and I know that a lot of you agree with me when I say that over the years the products seemed different. No matter what we were told they were not the products we all knew and loved. I was a huge Hope in the Jar fan.I bought the huge 8oz size from QVC all the time, but then it changed. I tried jar after jar, and the formula just wasn't what it was. So I have been trying to find a new winter moisturizer for years. And then this hit QVC and I thought what the heck? I love this! Now I have combo skin but lean more towards the oily side. I don't have many problems with acne or pimples, but I do have large pores and black heads. In the winter I need something a little more moisturizing. With all the indoor heat and sub-zero weather my skin takes a beating. I tried this for the first time on Christmas Eve. I put it on over my serum and then went back to the mirror a few minutes later, and WOW!!! My skin glowed. I know they say something in the description about an Asian fruit extract to help maximize your color. And I thought whatever. But wow! My skin really did look glow-y. I have been using this in the AM every day since and I'm hooked. My skin seems smother and more even toned and it's only been just over 2 weeks. I can't wait to see how much better it is after the full 4. I will mention this though, if you have dryer skin, I don't know if this will be moisturizing enough for you. At least if you're in the same climate I'm in. In warmer areas you may be alright, but again I tend more towards oily skin, and with the harsh weather we've been having there was a day or two when I needed extra moisture and mixed in some argon oil, but that might just be me. I will definitely be repurchasing this.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not for me
I'm sure this would be great for a lot of people, but if you have sensitive skin, this is probably not a good product for you. I have used Hope in a Jar for years and love it, but this made my skin red and burning. I also do not like scented skin products in general and this scent was particularly offensive. Even if the product was something I wanted to use I couldn't tolerate the odor.

My must have luxury item.
Teacher from Houma, LA
So many moisturizers irritate my skin, but this calms and hydrates beautifully.
I ask for this for Christmas and Mother's Day.
I would buy this again

Been using for years

I've been using this product for years. I've tried to switch to other brands but nothing has worked as well with my skin type. I have noticed as I've gotten older my skin seems to be more dry so this doesn't moisturize as well for me like it used to. I think for younger skin it is most definitely worth it. I will continue to use this product because I do feel it works well. I do feel if you have more dry skin you may need something a bit more moisturizing, but overall, I really love this brand.
Worth every penny
KF from Lewisburg, PA
I was reluctant to spend this much, but I'm glad I did. This moisturizer is amazing. My skin has evened out after only a week. Dry skin from my mask cleared up after only a few days. It's amazing & I highly recommend. It does not have SPF.
It's real good, I've used it for a long time.

Why don't I get an ULTA catalog any more?
My new favorite moisturizer
Debbie from Portland, OR
I have used Hope in a Jar for years and I love how my skin feels after using it. The one thing that I never loved about it was the scent. It has a heavy, musty type smell to it that I just don't like, but have gotten used to it so I really don't smell it anymore. I saw the Renewed Hope in a Jar during one of Ulta's promotions and thought I'd give it a try. I'm glad I did because I love it even more than the original! It works just as well for me and it has a clean, fresh scent! When I apply it it just sinks right into my skin and it feels great. You will definitely need sunscreen after using this if you spend time outdoors, but we should be wearing sunscreen outside anyway.
Worth the money!
Michelle from Pittsburgh
Very nice product!
Terrible reaction - burning, flaking, and itching!!
lcooney from CT
I wanted to love this product so much after reading many good reviews, but it was just not a good fit. The texture is nice, it's thick but absorbs nicely.
Wasn't until the third or fourth use that I started having extreme reactions. Almost immediately after applying, my skin was burning, itching, and covered in red patches. Very disappointed! (and in pain)
Day or Night
Lara from Illinois
I only use this cream during the day if I am staying indoors. Otherwise, I use it as a night cream. I like it better as a day cream than a night cream. I wish it had sunscreen. If it did, it would be 5 stars.
Simply the best
Jaime from New Jersey
I love this product. It's lightweight and just the perfect moisturizer for any time of day. I like to mix it with hyaluronic acid for the perfect anti- aging serum.
I have bought this many times.

Use product in the morning before foundation.

KC from NJ
Best moisturizer, hydrating not heavy and gives an amazing glow! I've been using it for years and nothing else compares.
Michelle from New Jersey
I use this moisturizer 2x a daily; it's light and dries quickly, it takes cares of any dryness I notice. I wish it had SPF in it to save a step but this is the only moisturizer I've used in years.
netty from Syracuse, Utah
Feels so light yet moisturizes so well!! This stuff is amazing!
Lola from CNY
I thought I liked this after trying a sample, so I purchased the full size during a 21 days of beauty sale. It's the least reached for moisturizer in my rotation. I enjoy the smell (although skincare should not have fragrance) and the feel, but I always need more moisture. I was hoping this "renewed" version would moisturize and help with turnover, but it is lacking. I would not repurchase.
Kitty from Lawrence,KS
this moisturizer is velvety smooth and makes my face feel soft and smooth, non greasy feel. I haven't seen a reduction in fine lines but to be fair I just started using this product. I would purchase this again since I already use the facial cleanser and it is wonderful as well.
Kitkat from North Carolina
I tried cheaper products after I retired due to price, but made my rosecea flare. Since then went back to my favorite product and will use this indefinitely.
My first moisturizer :D
Jean from Florida
I decided it was time to start taking care of my skin, and one of the first things I went looking for was a moisturizer. I wanted a moisturizer that was light, not super thick, I didn't want to feel like I had a layer of gunk on my face. This definitely fit the bill. I put it on and in moments its sucked into my skin.
I use the purity cleanser, a toner and then this...my skin is actually starting to brighten and its SO soft.
SuziG from Bay City, MI
light non greasy and skin feels so soft will be purchasing this again
I will never use anything else. Ever.
Lynny from OH
My first time using Hope in a Jar. I am in love with it! Not heavy, not greasy, just wonderful.
Kelsey from Mi
I'm 27 with normal/sensitive skin, & I bought this with the idea of anti-aging benefits in mind. This does not deliver. It also doesn't hydrate. It truly does nothing for my skin. I'd encourage Olay over this.
