I have to give my 2 cents here because of all the bad reviews. I really like this stuff! I like the whipped feel, and it sinks in quickly and makes my skin very clear and soft. The smell was weird at first but I actually like it now. A jar lasts a long time too. Obviously this doesn't work for everyone, but try a sample and give it a fair chance. I've used 3 jars of it now.

I tried this at Sephora on the back of my hand and noticed it felt soft right away. I asked the girl if it would clog my pores. She said no due to the lactic acid it would actually clear my pores. Why do I always assume these sales girls know what they are talking about? I am about half way through my 0.5 and my pores are def clogged. I finally made the connection that it was the hope in a jar causing it. So i am going to use it on my hands.

This is just average for a Philosophy product because I hold them to a higher esteem than other companies. Hope is a light moisturizing product, but you can actually feel it on your skin?!? I'm glad I only had a small jar of this so I could start using another product right away. Since there is no big thumbs up or thumbs down I'm not sure if I will purchase it again.
Update: 12-05-08 - I used this again and it gave my face a burning sensation!! WTF?!? It also smells rancid. I'm going to return it and ask if they have a sample that I can compare my jar with because maybe it had gone bad. That HAS to be it because I KNOW Philosophy would never let me dowm like this. :(

I love this moisturizer, and don't understand all the negative reviews it's been getting. It makes my complexion bright and glowing. I really notice the difference - when I don't use it, my skin looks dull and tired. I bought it because research I did said it was first developed for the medical field as a skin healing cream. That probably explains the slightly medicinal smell - although it also smells of lavender and I quite like it! The consistency is very thin and watery, and a little goes a long way. It also contains anti-oxidants, which is another reason I bought it. Can be expensive from shops, but I buy it cheaper on ebay for around £10 a jar, which isn't bad.

When I first used this product, I thought I loved it. It moisturized and it was very lightweight. But then later realized that it wasn't all that. It makes my eyes water slightly when I first put it on. I use it sparingly now, it's defo not a good moisturizer for the winter months...

First of all...I can't stand the smell, its so gross.
But thats just my opinion.
It's an OK moisturizer, but I don't think its worth the price
there are many other GOOD/BETTER moisturizers out there than can be purchased and get the same if not better outcome
thank god I only purchased the 0.5 oz. jar but even that was a waste of 15 bucks

Overall, I would say it works good. I haven't had any breakouts because of this - in fact the few times I do get breakouts, I like to use this over it since I think it's due to my dry skin. But it smells nice, doesn't feel heavy, and my skin feels smooth.

i don't know how philosophy got away with packaging this disgusting goop as moisutrizer and selling it for the hilariously high price that they do. the cream is funky smelling, not to mention too thick and greasy to be applied on the face. i used this sparingly (4 mini dots on my face) and had to really rub it in since it didn't seem to aborb into my skin... and it left a sticky / tacky film behind, making my face feel very uncomfortable. personally, i can't stand going to bed feeling greasy / sticky, esp on my face, so this is definitely a no-go for me. i have a sneaking suspicion that this so-called moisturizer is the culprit behind my newly formed pimple on my forehead. no thanks philosophy!

I tried out this product cause it had so my hype behind it. I do love the feel (very soft and fluffy) and I think it smells good too. It is light and refreshing. however, it doesn't seem to moisturize for long - maybe cause it's so light I feel like I need to reapply in a few hours. for background, I tend to like to slather lots and lots of face cream on cause I don't break out and prefer to have a super moisturized face.

I wish I had read the reviews here first before buying Hope in a Jar. It's heavy, greasy, and within 2 days of use caused me to break out on my chin and nose. I have sensitive/combination skin. The product description on the jar says Hope in a Jar is for all skin types. Based upon my experience, I disagree. Not recommended.
