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.

    Until I discovered Philosophy, NOTHING worked on my age spots and saging neck skin. Although it will not take ALL your aging problems away, it sure is the best product out there that comes close to really changing the problems of facial skin!

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

      I started using this moisturizer over 10 years ago. I am 44 and am constantly told that I look at least 15 years younger. No one believes I have a daughter in college, and this is the only moisturizer that I ever use. Your skin drinks it in and it is the only moisturizer that actually makes me feel pretty. It just does something to your skin that makes it beautiful, but it doesn't feel heavy or greasy. I live in a hot, humid climate so I can't stand a heavy moisturizer on my face. I won't buy anything else!

      • Quick Once Over On Face

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

      I got this product as a short term remedy since I was almost out of the Aveda stuff that I am addicted to (and would highly recommend. I was VERY disappointed! If this was about 12 dollars, I could see it... but for the price it just has a very generic, bland kind of smell and feel to it! It does not do much of anything, and the best thing I can say about it is that it is not very heavy!

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

          This is a smooth, non-scented facial moisturizer that doesn't feel greasy and can be worn under makeup. I purchased it mainly because of all the wonderful reviews that it has received. I think it is nice, but can't go so far as to swear it is the only product that I will ever use again. I am a fan of Philosophy skin care products and probably have 10 other items in my bathroom cabinet. This is certainly not my favorite and I actually prefer the Take A Deep Breath moisturizer over Hope In A Jar. Hope In A Jar is a desirable moisturizer for many people and you can not dispute that. I don't think you will be disappointed in this product, but you might find yourself still looking for something else along the way.

            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.
