I have found my HG moisturizer! I use this morning and night, and it is perfect for my dry combination skin. I use it in all seasons (summer AND winter) - that is how versatile it is! It has an extremely lightweight, whipped-like feeling, so it never feels greasy, but somehow is extremely hydrating. A little goes a long way with this product, so it will last you a while. I am on my second jar, and plan on sticking with this for a long time.

I received a sample of Hope in a Jar when I ordered a 32 oz bottle of Amazing Grace 3 in 1 from QVC. I decided to try the moisturizer because I am always up for trying something new. The texture of this moisturizer is kind of thick and it is also sticky. I really did not like the feel of this moisturizer on my face. Also the smell is awful!!!! I like to use facial cleansers and moisturizers that have a pleasant scent and the Hope in a Jar moisturizer does not have that at all. Also after I applied the moisturizer to my face my hands were left feeling sticky as well so I had to wash my hands. I really don't understand why this moisturizer is so popular but I know I will not buy this moisturizer. I am lucky that I had the sample and did not waste my money on this product. I will stick to my Kinara Lemon Eucalyptus moisturizer. It is light and has a nice lemon scent.

I really like this moisturizer but I don't love it. I've used it on and off for about two years now. I prefer it in the summer because it's not heavy. It gives my skin a fresh glow and leaves my complexion smooth. I need something more moisturizing for the winter though.

wow, that was horrible. tonight i ran out of regular night cream so i looked in to my samples bag, pulled out this HIAJ and put it on. It was on for about five minutes before i had to wash it off my face. It really did smell like it had gone rotten. very weird. Only after putting it on did I look did i read the MUA reviews. i'm not sure how well or not it works but it smells bad enough i threw away the sample. I didn't even want to use it on my legs.. (that's saying something cause i hate to waste!)

I really wanted to like this product.Unfortunately, it broke me out and made my face look like an oil slick which is pretty hard to do since I have very dry skin.

Disappointed. That's really the take home message here. This moisturizer made my skin break out, and while I was wearing it, the stuff just felt like a sticky, gross mess on my face. It also has a very unpleasant smell. Will never repurchase.

Made my skin feel greasy after a few hours. Didn't do much for dryness either. It gave me pimples too. Yuk.

This is honestly the worst moisturizer I've ever used. I received a sample of this from Sephora and couldn't even bear to go through the whole thing! It was way too oily for my normal / dry skin and clogged my pores, I even got white heads, which never ever happened to me before. It went straight to the rubbish bin. I will never purchase this.

I've tried quite a few moisturizers from drug store bands to higher end, and this is by far the best. My skin has never looked better since I started using this product! The only thing I don't love about it is the smell. It doesn't smell horrible, but it's not the greatest scent out there. Definitely a must have product!
