  • Customer Reviews:

    • No Beauty Product is for Everyone
      No miracle for me, not even for $78. The peel made my skin flake for two weeks and then break out for almost a month. Bad, bad, bad. Lots of hype surrounding these products, which most of my friends have tried, and most think are just average. My skin can have its moments, but it's not extremely reactive or dry...It should be remembered that no beauty product is for everyone.

      Microdelivery Peel: Um, no thanks. It is common for peels to make your skin flake, but afterwards your skin should feel soft, smooth, and renewed. This just made my skin break out in a way that it has never done before, and this went on for more than a month. Six weeks later, I still have the dark red marks to show for it, and my skin is MORE congested than before. Makeup is anything but optional right now, since without it I look like a have some sort of disease.

      Hope In a Jar: A lot of people love it, a lot of people hate it. I kept using this after the other products, and while I liked the scent and the way it felt on my skin, it gave me zits on the side of my face on which I continued using it. If you ever break out or have had an allergic reaction, stay away. The formulation has preservatives in it (diazolidinyl urea/imadazolidinyl urea) that can cause the allergic reaction reported by so many users, and the vitamin E is not in an active form that will do anything for your skin long term. Does give some people a "healthy glow" but this is the result of some unhealthy chemicals.

      When Hope Is Not Enough: You can get cheaper and equally effective products with better ingredients, for example Avon's Vitamin C Serum (I think it's under $15, especially when they have a sale). It has been established by science for many years that the one topical product that will really diminish fine lines and wrinkles is Retin A. You can get it with a prescription from your doctor, or you can find it at 60 and 30 concentrations from La Roche Posee (around $40).

      Purity: Just an average cleanser. I liked the smell, but comes no where near cetophil, neutrogena, la roche posay, or most of the other pharmacy brands that are regularly recommended by my 5th Aveenue dermatologist. Save your money.

      My dermatologist was horrified that I had tried this kit, and unsurprised with the results. I am horrified at what it did to my face, as well as at the $78 down the drain. A lot of hype surrounding these products, but not much in the way of science. stick with something with active and pure ingredients that backs up its claims (and just because it markets itself as "pure" does not mean it is)....more info
    • philosophy optional makeup skincare kit
      I am 54 years old with Mediterranean-type skin, which I have mostly neglected, unfortunately. What a difference I see after using the items in this kit for the first time! I used the micro-dermabrasion, the eye and lip cream, and the "when hope is not enough" serum. My skin absolutely glows, after one use. I never write reviews, but I cannot wait to see what my skin will look like in a month. ...more info
    • WOW!
      I love all of these products!! I can tell a big difference in the texture of my skin after using the kit....more info

    • ONLY skin care products I've ever LOVED!
      I'm 44 and I am a minimalist when it comes to skin-care regimens and makeup. My sister had given me a sample of the Hope in a Jar and I'd loved the light feel and the texture of my skin when wearing it. So, I ordered the "Makeup Optional" only because it was a better deal than the cream alone. It seemed so pricey that I thought of sending it back for the first week, but that was too much work :) Thank goodness! I tried it and LOVED the way my skin looked and felt IMMEDIATELY. Over the weeks, my skin has improved soooooo much. I have ruddy skin that flakes a lot. It simply doesn't do it anymore with this regimen. I HIGHLY recommend it. I don't feel the least bit guilty for the cost. VERY much worth it and the set has lasted nearly 8 months and I'm reordering today, just because I'm out of the serum (which BIG BONUS...slows facial hair growth!) The scent is a bit different, but you come to love that too. I'd give it 10 stars (and I'm NOT a fan of skin-care stuff) if you had 10!...more info
    • great products, not so great smell
      this was my first philosophy purchase but i decided to get it because i have heard so many great things about the company. overall i am very happy with the products and it is a great value to by them in the kit. the face wash is great!! It is very light and cleans well without drying out my skin, i also have combination skin and it has not made me breakout and has not made me oily, which it great. the hope in a jar moisturizer is nice, it is pretty light also and works well without being greasy. the hope is not enough serum smells horrible, it smells like some kind of herbal oil or something but luckily once it dries on the face you cant smell it anymore, i does work good too, if i use it on a regular basis it helps clear up any blemishes i have without drying my skin out. the hope in a tube is very nice i only use it around my eyes though and not my lips because it is kind of greasy and dont like the feeling of it around my lips. the best part of this is the samples of microdermabrasion packets. after you use these your skin feels so soft and refreshed and looks brighter. I am defineltly going to be getting this stuff even though it is a bit pricey! and it smells wonderful, like lemon cream! I am happy with my purchase but i just wish for the price that you pay, they could get some better smells for some of there products...more info
    • Great stuff!
      I have been having trouble with my skin ever since I had my daughter at 40. It seems suddenly I have some combination or dry skin compared to oily skin before! I've tried several different things in the last few years, but this is the first skin care that has really made a difference. My husband is always a skeptic, but he even can tell the difference. He said it made my skin look younger! Gotta love this stuff!...more info
    • Wonderful Product
      I am 24 years old with dry, sensitive skin. This combination of products did wonders for my skin. I am a first time buyer of Philosophy products, and I am very happy with the results. I decided to buy this kit because the moisturizers that I was using were not working well. They would make me break out and still leave my already dry skin dry...causing small bumps to appear around my cheeks. Apparently your skin creates those bumps when it isn't getting enough moisture. Well, after hearing some good reviews of Philosophy, I thought I would try it out. After a week, those bumps disappeared, my skin is softer than ever, and the dryness is completely gone.

      The smell isn't wonderful, and I noticed from some reviews of the individual products said that the smell was so bad that they quit using it. I honestly don't think it's so bad. If a products gives you great results, the smell is nothing to sob over. This is worth a try especially if you are a first time Philosophy buyer like me. It's a small set just to try the products out with a reasonable price tag. It comes with small samples also...so, it's all good.

      Overall, it was a great buy. I've become a fan of Philosophy....more info
    • Incredible Despite The High Price
      I had the opportunity to preview this product in philosophy's Radiant Face In A Box kit(available at Sephora.com). It is wonderful, but very high priced...that is my only concern. Two
      steps are involved-a vitamin C exfoliator that goes on like a
      cream but becomes a massaging scrub, and a white cream activator
      that becomes a tingling rinse off mask when applied to the C complex. It is invigorating but in no way harsh, and has a tingling but soothing citrus smell and feel. My skin was still
      baby soft the next day! An increbible product to use with purity
      made simple and hope in a jar, if you can afford it!...more info
    • makeup optional - results guaranteed!!
      These products are the best I've used. The purity cleanser is luscious and I feel like if I used only it, it would be sufficient. Following with when hope is not enough drops is invigorating and luxurious and I love the evergreen scent. I use hope in a jar sparingly on my face because I tend to be oily and this does seem to add to it if I overdo. I use the eye and lip firming tube only at night for the same reason. The peel - free samples included - is fantastic! I try to use it twice a week and I LOVE it. When the samples are gone, I plan to buy more, even though it is more than I would normally spend. I have seen smoother skin with a lovelier tone and a reduction in pore size. I've received compliments on my skin, which is unheard of for me. This is my first experience with philosophy. Had to try it after "Oprah" and I'm very glad I did. I'm 46 and have used cheap products all my life. Now's the time for a little pampering, and this is the stuff to make yourself feel pampered!...more info
