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.

Wow I really like this product. A lot. I was a bit hesitant after seeing the mixed reviews here on MUA but luckily sephora was offering a free philosophy starter kit to beauty insiders. After trying the kit I fell in love with philosophy products, and this hope in a jar is no exception.Before receiving the kit I was a bit skeptical... I was thinking to myself it's just cleanser and moisturizer, it can't make that big of a diff... boy was I wrong! The moisturizer makes my skin sooooooo soft... even though my skin is naturally oily, it tends get dry flaky and tight immedietely after cleansing. Generally i'll apply moisturizer after this, but many moisturizers (ie neutrogena) would leave a film with my skin... kind of like moisturized dead skin cells... It was really gross. I thought that this was normal and that I wouldnt ever find a way around this... after using Philosophy's hope in a jar i've now realized there are far better products out there!It does smell just a lil funky, but nothing thats worth throwing it out for, especially when considering the results. The smell is kind of herbally mediciny... kind of like aveda but not nearly as strong. I also have acne prone skin and break out often... this has not made me break out at all and thats a really big deal to me.Overall I think this product is really worth it - it moisturizes my skin without leaving a film and my skin is absolutely silky smooth after it absorbs the product. I would highly recommend this product to just about anyone. Best of all, the tinest dab'll do ya! (which is great news considering the price!)

My 30-something skin has gone a bit bonkers over the past couple of years and Hope in a Jar with La Roche Posay cleanser seems to have calmed me down for now. I get dry flaky patches along both sides of my nose whenever I stop using this product. I believe the lactic acid keeps that at bay. Have to be careful how much you use, a tad too much and I am an oil slick on two legs. Gave packaging a "1" due to the dip-your-fingers-in jar. I do make sure that my hands are clean; but seems a bit unsanitary for this day and age. The upside of the packaging is that I can get every single bit of the product out. This a pump bottle you always leave $$ of product sitting at the bottom or in the siphon tube.

I love this product! I actually think it's very moisturizing. I did not need a lot of product to moisturize my whole face. I've been using the same 2 oz. tube for 5 months already and I haven't finished it all yet. However, my skin is naturally oily so I don't really need that much moisturizing but I use a lot of oil-control products that make my skin flaky and peeling combined with grease and it's just really nasty. This product just balanced it all out for me! First time I tried it it made my skin look glowy that I almost didn't need a blush. I did not have any problems with acne. There was a point where I felt it was too heavy for me but a few minutes after applying it, it does not bother me at all. It has this weird funky smell but it does not bother me that much. All in all, I think it;s a great moisturizer. I'm surprised a lot of dry skin-type people dont think it's moisturizing enough, maybe the dry-skin formula should work better for them.All in all, I would buy this again if I have the budget. It;s just really expensive.

Wow...this was actually really horrible, and I tend not to complain about anything. I recently ordered the Philosophy Microdelivery Peel and got this as a sample. In the past I had used Hope in a Jar for dry/sensitive skin and didn't care for that either, but I thought maybe it was just too thick for me. First, the texture of this product is like cheap novelty hand lotion. It's thin and doesn't feel like it should moisturize anything. Second...and I have to put in the disclaimer that smells never bother me, and a lot of products that other reviewers couldn't stand because of the smell, I actually liked...the smell of this cream was completely disgusting. It was strong, chemical-y, and incredibly overpowering.Oh...and after putting two layers of this crap on my face and STILL feeling dry, I had to re-wash and just use my Cetaphil. I would NEVER pay for this. I'm amazed it's so popular.
