With all of the hype associated with this product (magazines, television, even Oprah!), I was expecting a fabulous moisturizer. This moisturizer was way too greasy for my combination sensitive skin! Plus, the smell is terrible (very medicinal, almost rancid). I prefer a moisturizer without fragrance, so I'm not comparing this to floral/fruity moisturizers.I tried this back when I was in high school and didn't like it. My skin has matured a bit, so I gave it another try a couple of years ago. I still don't care for it.

I can't decide if I love this or hate it. I love the way it goes on, and the way my skin feels right after. I have combination skin with clogged pores, but the dry areas on my face are really dry. And while this didn't make my face greasy or shiny, it also seemed like my skin felt dry again very soon after i put it on. I've bought this probably two times in the past with high hopes, and each time I swore I wouldn't buy it again. I'm hoping that this will be the last time I subject myself to "hope", because hope without any results is just not good enough. After a couple weeks of using this product religiously, I find that it makes my pores smaller, my skin less oily, and the overall texture of my skin much smoother and nice. that sounds good, and it is. But there's a down side. and the bad side is VERY bad imo. though the majority of my skin looks better than normal, I end up getting HUGE breakouts where I never would have gotten them before. and I mean MONSTER ZITS. Yuck!. So right now I've stopped using this, and while my face heals (please let it be soon!) i'll be on the lookout, always, for a perfect product.....

Philosophy has not quite won me over to the dark side with this one yet. While I liked it when I had it, I am not driven to repurchase it often mainly because I don't think it's worth the price.I like the way it absorbs into my skin almost instantly. It does not feel greasy. I can put it on day or night and it doesn't cause cystic pimples. With that said, I hate the smell. I am very sensitive to smell, and this just smells chemical.

I actually liked this moisturizer and may go and purchase the big jar as soon as I finish up my other moisturizers. Went on smooth and not as greasy as other applications (like Everywear by EDM) and absorbed fairly quickly. Will wait for a sale or something because it is quite expensive...

I liked this moisturizer and used it for about 6 months, but I stopped using it because I could not justify spending over 30 dollars on a moisturizer. It didn't break me out and it moisturized pretty well, but I get the same results from Olay Complete at a fraction of the price.

I really like this moisturizer. Its not greasy, doesnt break me out and makes my face really smooth. Even my pores look smaller. I love both this and the purity made simple which washes away ALL my makeup.

This is the first moisturizer I have been faithful to for a year now. It's light & goes on my skin smoothly- leaves a glow. I'm in the minority here, but I happen to like the smell. I will continue to buy this even if my budget doesn't allow it.

This is the first Philosophy product I've ever tried and sadly, it was disappointing. Before buying, I read the reviews here and it was split 50/50. The cream goes on well and sinks in nicely, but only if you don't plan on wearing powder foundation or any sort of makeup over it. Right away I noticed it gives my face an orange tinge. It's subtle, but clearly apparent on my very fair complexion. Kinda disturbing. Like others have mentioned, it does have a strange smell (think of when you were younger pulling out your Barbie from the box) that seems synthetic. The first 2 days this stuff worked great and now by the 5th day, I have dry flakes of skin coming off my cheeks near my mouth and my face turns into an oil slick every hour or so. From experience with other products, I've learned lactic acid does no good for my skin. Try this cream out to see if it works for you. It didn't for me!

The jar is annoying...it gets dried up and contaminated easily. I love the product for drier seasons, but i think they should develop a less rich version for the summer months. Kind of expencive but defiantly makes me skin rosy and glowing. will buy again in the fall.

Hope in a Jar is my favorite moisturizer, I have been using it for 5 years straight and I continue to love it. It has a nice, airy, texture and it leaves a rosy glow. If you have dry skin it may not be enough of a moisturizer for you, during the winter I add another type to my dry zones. But for summer weather Hope is light and has a clean fragrance.
