The only reason I gave the packaging quality a 3 is because I bought it in a glass bottle and it has a screw top which can pour out a lot of product. Other than that this is my favorite nightime moisturizer. I do not mind the nutty smell and am used to it. This stuff works. Even my dermatologist said my skin is supple and I am turning 50 next month. I also rub this in my hair and scalp and cover with a showercap. I clean the house and two hours later I wash it out. My hair is like silk. I color my hair and it is thin but it has more life and body now.
I do not have acne and my skin is a bit dry. I use this for my large pores on my cheek, nose and chin. I wet my hands and lather it up in my hands. I spread it on my face and leave it for a few minutes. It is drying and after I rinse it off I use my argan oil on my face. My pores have shrunk. Do not use the bar on your face because it can scratch your skin. I really like this and fave a bar to my brother for his bacne.

I really like this product. I am using SPF everyday. Wish I had years ago but better late than never. It keeps my face feeling soft and I no longer want chemicals on my face. JM products are all natural and I like that. If I sweat and it gets in my eyes it does sting but chemical SPF makes me go blind for a few seconds- not this stuff.
I mix a little of this with my Macadamia oil. I use it on my face and the ends of my hair. I love it. IIt dries quickly and does not make my face break out. I rarely break out so acne is not an issue. The macadamia oil has a slight odor but it fades. I have gone 100% natural and have stopped using chemicals on my face. I see an improvement in texture and softness of my skin.
I have been using cold pressed all natural castor oil on my eyebrows. I had been having my eyebrows waxed and the salon overdid my brows. My normally nice full brows lost thier tailend. I have been using castor oil on my face for about a month and noticed my eyebrows are fuller and the tail end has come back. I gave up on it growing in full but now I have it back. I will not wax my brows again because those girls overdo it. If I tell them to just clean up the line they always overdo. Use castor oil and avoid high priced lines that make promises they cannot deliver. Also it is a little greasy but rub a tiny bit in. It will soak in before bedtime.
I dropped the original rating because five squirts and a few minutes later I can barely smell the fragrance. I am disappointed because I love Philosophy. I am editing my response because as the weeks have gone by I have realized that the fragrance has no staying power. I like a light fragrance but I cannot smell this at all after a few hours. Still love the scent but I am not the type to spray it on three or four times a day to refresh the fragrance.Fragrances evoke a different reaction on each woman who wears it. I personally love Philosophy '"Divine". I recieved a small sample and preordered. I recieved it in late August. I love this fragrance. I like Amazing Grace and Pure Grace. I am not a fan of sweet smelling or heavy perfumes. I only use one spritz of perfume as I get overwhelmed by too much of any fragrance. My husband will not sit in a car with me if he thinks my perfume is too strong. He loves Divine.
