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!

I didn't like this product at all. I hated the consistency of the lotion. I found it very clumpy and had a hard time spreading it evenly over my face. I used it for over a month and it did nothing for skin. Would not repurchase.

I wanted to try Hope in a Jar for the longest time and I received it as a gift. I heard so much hype about this product and I was really curious about. The texture is a little like whipped cream and when you place it on your skin it seems t o "melt" and leaves a shimmery look, that quickly does away. The smell I don't find at all offensive, like some people do. It's very much like lavender, so I guess if you don't like herbal or lavender like smells, stay away from this. The pro's about this product is that it keeps my skin smooth and it's great for after I do home chemical peels. The con for me is, that it's really not that great. It doesn't do anything really special, so for the price, it's just not worth it. I'd rather spend my money on a drugstore cream that works much better. Sadly, this is not for me.

Philosophy Hope in a Jar is a GREAT product. Speacially for people who have senstive skin. For the longest time, it was the only mositurizer I could use that wouldn't irrate my skin. (However, I have swtiched to Mark's For Goodness Face with SPF 30. WHICH IS AWESOME and half the price.) I think they could change the packaging. I would highly recommend a air tight pump! And this product is kinda pricey.

Can't understand the appeal of this product. I tried it several times, and it broke me out every time-- not acne, either... little white bumps that took about a week to go away, like an allergic reaction or something. I've read through the reviews on this one here on MUA and on a few other sites, and many seem to experience breakouts/reactions to this. Get a sample if you must try this, and beware!

I don't mind the smell of this product and it is somewhat smoothing but I find that I break out using it. I normally don't break out very easily but something about it made my skin erupt, especially when I used it at night. Not good for my skintone-I wouldn't buy again.
