Doesn't smell bad
Good for winter
glow/ could be confusing this for oily looking
A bit too thick
Leaves a heavy feeling
Ingredients may not be great for sensitive skin
This moisturizer is ok. I think I'll stay with the sticky smell of fresh soy cream over this one
i used this product yrs ago and i forgot how great it was. i went on to buy more expensive products but i came back to this after having adult pimple problems. this has cleared my skin up in 2 weeks. my skin looks better than it has in several yrs. it does burn around the eyes but im not going to quit using it. i think they have a sensative formula for those who it burns.
I like this product because it soaks in right away and comes in a tub (so there's no product lost), but that's about where the love ends. It's overpriced, stings my face when applied, and I don't really see any improvement in my skin after using it regularly for a few weeks. It doesn't seem like much of a moisturizer to me, unfortunately. Occasionally I'll get a sample of it at Sephora, and I am reminded again why I don't repurchase this product.
HORRIBLE! It burns my face, especially the skin around my eyes. It smells like rotting fish. It made me break out. The packaging is unsanitary.
Ladies I regret ever putting this on my face. Fortunately I did not buy this but saw in it my mom's stash and decided what the heck...
What was I thinking? This is a warning and hopefully will prevent this from happening to you, just be sure and patch test yourself before putting this all over you face
Iím trying to narrow down what ingredient in this stuff made my face have severe swelling, redness, and raised rash like welts everywhere that i had applied the cream.
I first used this Saturday evening, signs started developing the following day, and when I woke up this Monday morning I could barely open my eye the swelling had gotten so bad. I was so scared that symptoms were escalating, i ended up spending the morning in the ER. And finally sent home with no answers and a rx for prednisone.
I have never reacted this way to anything else before.
My favorite moisturizer! Im surprised at some of the bad reviews on this. Well, it works great on my skin! Its creamy and blends in nicely. It really feels moisturizing while it smooths out my skin and gives a nice glow afterwards. It's pricey, but totally worth it to me. The jar does contain a lot of product and a very little amount on the skin can go a long way.
Wanted to love this. I get this for free from a friend sometimes but I end up using it as a body lotion. It's so silky and smooth but it makes my face silky for a few minutes...then my skin get's thick and greaseballs ensue on my face. Would not recommend. Not worth the ridiculous price.
I wanted to like this, I really did. I received this in a set, this didn't work for me. In fact none of the products in the kit worked for me.
Hope in a Jar burned my eyes and smelled like box hair dye. I used it a few times and had to stop, if it got anywhere near my eyes the burning sensation started. My skin around eyes is way too sensitive for this stuff. And the smell....yuck!
My aunt uses this religiously, but I couldn't stand it.
UPDATE: Almost 2 months after this I'm still dealing with all the scaring from this product and I'm still breaking out since trying to use the Philosophy gift set I received. I return it but my face has not been the same =( Tons of scars. They make me feel gross and I can't go without full coverage foundation.
Another Update: 3 months after using this product my skin has never been the same..I never had cystic acne but after using this I haven't been able to get the huge deep painful cyst from appearing on my chin =(
Like many others, I wanted to love this. I wanted to find my HG moisturiser, and after reading so many rave reviews I thought maybe this would be the one! I only use this at night time and when I wake up this does make my face feel plump and soft (although I'm currently using E.L advanced night repair too, so it could be the benefits of that coming through) I like the souffle-style of this, it makes it melt into my skin so well. I also don't mind the smell and think the jar is unbelievably cute. The one gripe I have with this is that it irritates my eyes to no extent. Upon applying this my eyes water excessively and they burn. I think for that reason alone, once this jar is up I'm going to have to move on and find something else. If this works for you, you can withstand the smell and it doesn't give you a painful adverse reaction, I think this could just well be amazing.
really wanted to like this as i love philosophy as a brand put as soon as i applied this my face began to sting and turned red to me it stunk of paint, i tried keeping it on for a little while but had to wash it off after 10-15 minutes and then my face calmed down. nothing like what i was hoping for unfortunatly. still love the purity cleanser and a bunch of other philosophy products though
