I am shocked at how much I love my skin now. I have combo skin, get breakouts and scar after every single pimple. I wanted to try this since I really like a lot of philosophy's other products and need a moisturizer in winter. This has transformed my skin. I never thought a moisturizer could do this, but my skin doesn't break out near as much, and my skin tone looks amazing. It absorbs so fast, and feels wonderful. I can live without the smell, but it really doesn't bother me much. Once the product sinks in and I put on my makeup I don't notcie it anymore. I credit this and help me with completely turning my skin around.

I love this product. It works wonders on my skin and perfect for all year round. For the smell, I hated it when I first started but I actually really like it now. My friends don't like the smell but I guess it's just something you have to get used to. I wish there was a more hygenic way of applying it though. Some kind of despenser than just getting it from a jar but then I guess Philosophy would have to change the name. This for me is the only product worth buying from Philosophy because I have tried a lot of their other products and none have worked except for this one. It is a little bit on the expensive side but a jar for me lasted about three months. Keep in mind though that I have oily skin so I didn't use a lot every day. A pea sized amount worked for my whole face. I would definetly recommend this to anyone looking for a moisturizer.

Though it is a bit on the expensive side, it is well worth it. I love this especially in the cold bitter winter months. My skin was NOT dry once and that is rare for me! I would def repurchase and recommend!

It cleared my skin up beautifully BUT this situation only lasted 2/3 rds of the jar. I think after using this product consistently, my skin just adapted and the acne came back. The reason why I will buy this again is to use it every other day, almost like a treatment.

I am so shocked at the bad reviews I'm seeing for Hope in a Jar! I absolutely LOVE this stuff. The scent isn't great, but the texture is just wonderful.

I have oily/combo skin and use Hope in Jar everyday--usually at night (but also if I'm not going to wear makeup)--and it makes my skin so soft without being oily.

I'm really prone to breakouts and get moderate cystic acne on my chin, and this stuff hasn't hurt my skin at all; in fact, it's made the overall appearance of my skin A LOT better.

I will say that it's a bit expensive, but with the way I use the product (I have the 1 oz. jar) I don't think I'll have to buy another for several months.

I have soooo many jars of this from sooo many TSV's from QVC! Well anyway, its an ok moisturizer, nice and light, absorbs well but thats it. never made a visible difference in my skin, but I didn't mind the smell either. Its ok but would not buy again or on its own.

I bought this after trying many many products for my dryyy flaky skin. The price was steep, but after reading the bottle I felt hopeful. (haha).
At first, I didn't notice much of a difference in my skin except it was much more moisturized, but after a while I began to see how much more glowy and bright my skin tone had become. It evened out my blotchiness and I felt like I hardly needed makeup at all. It was fantastic! For some reason, mostly because I'm too generous, I let my mom have the rest of my jar. After that my skin returned to it's dull self again. Boooo.

This is the best moisturizer I have ever used. The formula is not too thick or greasy. However, you have to get used to the smell. My skin is noticeably smoother (even my husband noticed a difference!).

I hated this product. I never break out and this caused white bumps on my chin after only using it for 2 days! I will not repurchase.
