I like this stuff pretty well. It's light and moisturizes nicely, but I think it adds to my oily T-zone, which is a definite no-no for me. Still, it works wonders for my mom, so I'm sure it's great stuff, just not for me.
i really like this product. i don't love the herbal fragrance and cannot use it near my eyes because of the fragrance. i also do not like products in jars. however, i will continue to buy this because of the results! it really sinks into my combo skin, rather than sitting on top of it. it also seems to increase the radiance of my skin. this has become a staple for me, although i do not use it in the summer regularly.
I really wanted to like this since I'm such a big fan of the purity made simple cleanser. I mainly don't like the smell of this stuff! I don't think there's anything special to this moisturizer. My skin doesn't look any better or any worse using this. It feels too greasy on my skin also. Would not recommend this but then again everyone's skin is different.
I am still unsure if I like this product, or not; I'm having a bit of a love-hate relationship with it. I have been using Hope In A Bottle, which I really like, but got a few samples of Hope In A Jar (and an actual jar of it), and thought I'd try it. Well, I like how this makes my skin glow (it's a very natural look on me, a little rosy and "ethereal-skin looking") but I'm unsure if it could be leading to pimples or clogged skin. I haven't used it for 2 weeks yet (my timeframe to decide if I like a product or not), so I'll update after the 2-week period. Regardless, it is a little unhygienic to have something in a jar rather than in a bottle/pump. The free sample packet lasts quite a long time.
EDIT: I thought it was giving me clogged pores. So I stopped using it. I dug out another sample packet, and am using it again. So far, no clogged pores. Looking good! :)
UPDATE: Upped the rating to 5 Lippies. This stuff is great. It has not clogged my pores, and my skin looks and feels so wonderful after I've used it. continued >>
I wanted to like this product. I used it for a few weeks, and noticed that it actually made my skin dry up and peel off. At first I thought this was just the exfoliation of old skin, but it never stopped! Finally I decided to quit using & my skin instantly improved. I guess it's just not for me! BTW, I am in my early thirties and have normal to dry skin.
I have to agree with previous reviewer.....They call this thing Oprah in a Jar because after she reviewed it, EVERYONE and their mother went out to buy it...including me...I just didn't get it....I'm a huge fan of effective skin care no matter how expensive, but this stuff did nothing, and really disappointed. I love the line for it's innovativeness, but this cream is nothing special. I'll stick ot my Hauschka thank you very much. If you're looking for great cream, definitely check out my reviews for this!
Nothing special about this cream. It was relatively moisturizing but didn't really have anything else going for it.
This is a no big deal not very emollient moisturizer. My skin is normal/dry, and it's barely moisturizing enough for day and certainly not for night. There are just so many better alternatives out there that I can't see buying more.
i had a problem with this moisturizer making my eyes sting and water like crazy, but it has a nice texture and is very moisturizing. not sure about the brightening claims though.
I used this for the first time last night after cleansing with Purity, and found it to be too light for nighttime use. My skin is normal to dry, and although I liked the cream, I think it's best for me as a daytime moisturizer. I live in the Seattle area, and it doesn't get very hot around here in the summer, so I can get away with something more emollient than this cream. However, since I wear BE makeup, Hope in a Jar, with the Supernatural Poreless Flawless over it is a terrific combo under the BE foundation. Makes the BE minerals glide on easily. I will continue to buy this cream for that purpose, but will try something else at night. I like the light scent, which doesn't interfere with my fragrances.
