This is the only moisturizer I have used that actually improved the texture of my skin and I saw improvement in my face after just two weeks. It reduced the size of my pores and black heads. And better yet, since I am still prone to acne breakouts, I have not had any new breakouts. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it does have a strange odor but the smell does go away after it absorbs into your skin. I use just a little every morning and night and it never feels greasy (unless you apply too much). At the beginning there was some skin peeling but that was just the dead skin cells sloughing off.

I use other products by this company that are OK. I really wanted to like this product. Unfortunately, the results actually frustrated me. I generally have normal skin but somehow after using this product my face felt tight. This completely goes against the company's mantra that it is like a drink of water for your skin. I soon noticed that my normal skin was acting abnormally. Within three weeks of using the product, I had so many bumps on my face. Since I received it in a set I didn't have the ingredients on hand but did a search on drugstore.com to find out what the offender was in the product. HIAJ has more silicone (Dimethicone, Cyclomethicone,Triethanolamine) than my usually adept skin could take. Since I know silicone is pore clogging, I decided to stop using the product immediately. Also, it has two of the nasty Urea's (Diazolidinyl Urea, Imidazolidinyl Urea) that generally have some adverse affects. On top of it all, I actually had quite a few of my friends, male and female, tell me my normally glowing skin looked dull. They confirmed what I was already thinking. Tragic results for a product touted as being effective and natural.

    Tried several moisturizers like Mary Kay products, Olay, Clinique but this product seems to work better with my skin. The only problem I have with it is the scent/smell.

          I love this light weight cream, and use it everyday along with the vitamin c peptide and serum from Philosophy. This beauty regimen has been wonderful for me and control my combination skin, wrinkles and acne. I like the light lavender scent it awakens me in the morning and calms my skin. Do not put too much on a little goes a long way. Too much and your skin has to dry before makeup.

            I use hope in a jar on a daily basis - day and night. This product is so rich and creamy. It sinks right in and leaves my skin soft and smooth. I have recently noticed a huge difference, since I had tried another brand for a short while before going back to hope.

            Comments about philosophy hope in a jar original formula for all skin types, 2 oz:

            It is part of my nighttime skin care regimen after removing my makeup. I began using it in the morning but it was too greasy to apply makeup evenly. My skin was prone to drying out so I would apply this at night and wake up to silky smooth skin. It is slightly greasy so you just have to use a very little bit.

                My husband recoils from the smell, this stuff has a negative effect on my sex life. I had to throw out the jar ful.

                I'd never buy this again, which is sad cause the night cream is GREAT

                Did not have high hopes after first use, barely feels like you're putting anything on. But... I was wowed! It works very, very well in smoothing out complexion and filling in fine to medium wrinkles.
                LOVE IT!!!

                Philosophy Hope in a Jar Original Formula for All Skin Types

                 – The company's award-winning moisturizer, philosophy hope in a jar, is a multipurpose product that can tackle common skin concerns. Whether your dry skin is caused by aging or environmental conditions such as dry air or too much sun exposure, you can find hydrating relief with this nourishing product. There is hope - softer, smoother, and better hydrated skin is attainable thanks to philosophy.

                Formula



                The magic behind philosophy's hope in a jar is its proven, highly effective formula. Two important ingredients combine in this moisturizer to benefit your skin. Lactic acid is the gentlest alpha hydroxy acid, one that offers significant benefits. It works to eliminate dead skin cells on the surface, cells that might be clogging your pores and diminishing your complexion. Beta-glucan encourages your skin's natural rejuvenation, giving it a healthier and more beautiful appearance. Even more, this ingredient boosts your skin's natural defense system, allowing it to repair itself more effectively. Thus, beta-glucan can improve your skin's overall health. Together, these ingredients deliver antioxidant benefits to your skin, helping to protect it from environmental factors.

                Use



                hope in a jar can be used up to twice a day to boost the health of your complexion. Apply the philosophy product to freshly cleansed skin once or twice a day, perhaps morning and evening. With regular use, you can minimize the impact of environmental damage on your skin. You may start seeing results in as little as a few days. Give your dry, damaged skin some relief with hope in a jar, and enjoy a softer, smoother complexion tomorrow.
