Unlike many of the other girls here I had the best experience with this product! I found it absorbed into my skin easily and made my usually dry and bumpy skin very smooth and it just makes me glow after applying it!

I really love this moisturizer, but I find it is too heavy for during the summer. I have oily and very acne prone skin, and this makes me break out this time of year. During the winter, I absolutely love it. It gives my skin a nice (and noticable) rosy glow. It doesn't irritate my skin even though I use it with acne products. The smell is a little "earthy" but I actually like it and have come to realize that natural products often smell more herbal than floral.

It took me 5! months to get my skin back to the state it was before i tried out this product. It seemed like this moisturizer just stayed on top of my skin, dried it out really bad, and my acne came back after 2 years. im assuming it was because of this product. Thank god it was a christmas present from my mother in law, didnt have to waste any money, but it was a pain to get my skin to look and be normal again.

This is my HG of moisturizers! It makes my skin look healthy and I've gotten lots of compliments on my complexion since I've been using it. However, I don't used it when my skin gets extra oily and acne prone around 'that time of the month'. I use an oil free moisturizer to substitute. Hope In a Jar is one of those products that you can use too much of. A little dab goes a long way!

it seems to me like Hope in a Jar is very hit or miss, all depending on who's using it. I am extremely acne-prone and oily, though I get dry spots during the winter. I've only gotten to use Hope in a Jar over the past few summer months, but I have to say that I would only use it during the summer anyway. it soaks right into the skin, and it seems impossible to over-moisturize with the stuff. this is why I would only use Hope in a Jar in summer, because it moisturizes but keeps my skin from getting greasy so makeup doesn't melt off, but in winter it would be too dry. it did not aggravate acne; in fact, during my periods(when my acne gets its worst), my acne seemed a lot calmer. I currently am using Hope in a Jar in the morning until it gets cold outside, and a cheaper, thicker moisturizer at night. I'm trying to be stingy with it since it's so pricey! I'd love to recommend this to everyone, but really you won't know if it works for you until you try it.

heard so much about this and was disappointed to be honest. Firstly the smell was awful hard to describe the smell but it doesnt smell nice!my boyfriend even said somethin about the smell. At first I thought it was just mine but no thats the smell! Secondly its not as moisturizin as it claims to be. It did give me skin a nice appearance but for the price i paid for it i expected better!!!

I heard a lot of really great things about this, and I'm always up for trying new skin products so I thought I'd give it a try. I bought a small "sample-sized" jar from Sephora and that alone was $15. The smell took some getting used to...I can't even describe it. The texture was a whip, which I thought would be great. Unfortunately it left my skin with a tacky feeling that took about an hour to go away. The smell stuck sround for a long time too, which bothered me. I didn't think it was all it was cracked up to be. I won't be buying it again.

This is absolutely not for all skin types and I hate all the hype Philosophy puts out about this moisturizer to advertise it is. I have sensitive, acne prone skin, and this broke me out immediately. The fragrance is strong and gross and it burns my skin. It did make my skin super soft, but it was very irritiating and clogged my pores so bad I couldn't even appreciate that small benefit.

I really don't get what the hype is about with this product. I guess it has lactic acid so it has a slight exfoliation effect, but the packaging wasn't very sanitary (I prefer tubes, or pumps, or at a minimum a jar with a spatula!). It did make me break out the first few times I used it, even though I was used to using BHAs and AHAs, but then my skin adjusted to it and the breakouts stopped. It was an adequate moisturizer, but it also bothered me that it didn't contain sunscreen. I've read since me finishing my jar that they've come out with a sunscreen version, but I wasn't impressed enough with this product to try it. The smell took some getting used to, but I got over that after awhile. Anyway, I used what I purchased, but I have no plans to repurchase.

I bought this at Sephora without trying it first. I figured, "If it's that popular it can't be that bad, right?" Wrong. It made me break out and I still have several acne scars to prove it, it completely ruined my vacation. It feels very greasy and when it's in your hand it feels like syrofoam or some cheap plastic polymer about to melt. The fragrance is very cloying and again, smells like cheap scented styrofoam. I would never buy this again and because of this, I stay away from the Philosophy line. It goes to show you (myself included) people do buy into the hype. The only hope is that there are other companies that make much better products. I looked this up just now and was relieved to find out that other people have had similar experiences and it wasn't just my skin that was weird.Thanks again, Makeup alley! Again, I would not recommend this to anyone except maybe dry skinned people, and even then, they should request a sample. If you're an oily or combo person don't even bother with a sample. It only took 2 days for it to break me out.
