Customer Reviews:

  • Best cream ever
    I usually don't use face cream of any kind but this winter seemed to change that. I tried this based on reviews and I'm glad I did. It feels great as soon as you apply it- very soothing. It didn't break me out, either. I didn't see any visible results, but it absorbs quickly and relieves dry skin like crazy....more info
  • Love it.
    My husband purchased this for me for Christmas. I love the way it makes my skin feel. I have used other philosophy products and love them too. I am curious though, the back of this jar says "not for individual sale" so I'm assuming this jar was part of a kit?. Can they do that? Just curious....more info
  • Took a while, but now I love it
    I used this product for more than 3 weeks before I decided I liked it. Initially I thought it was too light and the scent is very odd. It reminds me off that fake plastic doll hair smell. But I decided to stick with it and see what I thought after a month. Now I love it. It's light and has that whipped texture. It absorbs quickly and my skin is super soft. My makeup is going on smoothly and I even have rosey cheeks which I have never had. I haven't changed anything but my moisturizer so I will attribute the positive results to this product. I like that I can use the Bare minerals over it without it clinging to the moisture.
    I would recommend this product. Like any other I think you need to use the entire product to really see results....more info
  • must try this product!
    O.k. initially i was hesistant to order this because other reviewers said that it smelled or gave them rashes. I have very sensitive skins and have experienced rashes from a number of moisturizers, but Hope in a Jar is one of the best products i have ever used. It's smell is kind of like lemon grass, and slightly similar to some tea tree products. It's not bad just earthy. It has helped my blotchy complexion, as well as faded acne scars that i have had for years. My skin never feels dry like it used to. I would recomend this product to anyone. And after using Hope in a Jar am anxious to try other Philosophy products....more info
  • Smooth and Light
    After using this product for a week I can actually say that my face feels smoother in the morning. I put it on every night before bed. I'm not sure it will diminish wrinkles or fine lines but it feels light and smooth, not think and heavy at all. Only sunscreen protection....more info
  • Would give it less than one star if possible
    I don't understand the hype and belief in this cream. It has a catchy name and it is cheap compared to a lot of other brands on the market but actually using this doesn't do anything, at least not for me..... I am in my mid-40's & have oily (still!) fair skin. I've spent hundreds, if not more, on facial lotions, etc.... I like a few but this is not one of them. Like another reviewer has stated, "Oil of Olay" works better or as well as this, for a lot less money....

    Sorry, do not like this line and do not recommend. Maybe it is my oily skin?...more info
  • Hmm...
    I read many reviews that the philosophy products are really good for all types of skins, so I trusted all reviews I read and purchased this facial mositurizer. I read a review that it smells like rose, but mine is more likely an ointment... I really dislike it!
    And this cream isn't easily absorbed to skin. thus, if I wear foundation or sunscreen over the cream, foundation or sunscreen plus the cream will peel off. totally waste my money! ...more info
  • Smells nice but gave me a rash
    I love several of the philosophy fragrances so started trying their skin care line, including "hope in a jar" along with a few body lotions. While I do not have sensitive skin, 2 of 3 philosophy moisturizers made me break out in a bumpy rash within 2 days. I thought it was a fluke so months later I tried again with the same result. I've never had this problem with any other skin care products, even cheap drug store ones, so unfortunately will never spend money on philosophy skincare products again!...more info
  • Excellent product and service.
    I got the product in good order and love the product. Thanks for being prompt in sending it and the packaging was safe and arrived in tact....more info
  • Not entirely unpleasant
    This cream did not work as well as I had hoped. The smell and texture was unpleasant and I did not see any changes as the jar promised. Was not that moisterizing either, I need more water in my skin, not oil or the slick substance that was in this product. I looked forward to using it up!...more info
  • Good cream for men too
    This is an excellent face cream. As a man I don't want anything heavy or with a strong smell. This has a very light fresh smell. It is not greasy or heavy at all, and quickly gets absorbed which I really like. The only negative is that it does not have any SPF. If they would add an SPF of 15 or so, I would give it 5 stars....more info
  • It really is hope in a jar!
    My skin has always been very dry and sensitive. I've tried a lot of other products with lots of disappointment. I started using this cream about 8 months ago and it has totally changed my complexion.I put t on at night before I go to bed and in the morning before I put on my makeup. My skin is very smooth now and I rarely get any break outs since I started using it. It is worth every penny. Just be careful not not get it too close to your eyes because it will sting....more info
  • For my wife - it cost me a small fortune...
    I am reviewing this for my wife. I am not sure if she had ever used Philosophy products before I bought this for her, but since she has spent a lot of money on the Philosophy line. No amount of words can praise a product quite like the expense report....more info
  • What is that smell...
    At first I quite liked this product as it was recommended to me by a couple different friends, so I went out and purchased it. I didn't really feel the difference, but I only used it for a couple of weeks as it started to smell very medicinal (in a bad way) and I couldn't stand it....more info
  • Absolutely fantastic
    One of the very few creams that last all day. With most creams for dry skin, the skin needs topping up with a little more cream after a few hours, but with this cream it doesn't. I tried it over the winter months and cannot rate it highly enough....more info
  • Awesome stuff
    Expensive, but this is one of the few products that is worth it. You only have the one face, take care of it. You don't have to use much either, it goes on smooth and your face is so soft afterwards. ...more info
  • Smells so bad and really greasy
    Not only does the product seriously stink... but the smell takes about three washes to get off your skin. Really really greasy as well... ...more info
  • My Favorite!
    I love Philosophy products. Especially this face cream, it is my absolute favorite, Iv'e tried em all. Im stickin with this!!!! Thanks Philosophy!!!!...more info
  • Smell is not great
    I agree with another reviewer, the smell is not too great, especially if you combine it with the serums, then it's really bad. Some mornings it makes you gag. That being said, I really like this product. I just don't use the serum every day. It is very moisturizing without being greasy. I think it makes my skin look dewy and fresh and I don't have as many breakouts as with other products. I still recommend it to everyone since a good moisturizer is a staple for your daily routine....more info
  • Good
    I like it, a small amount provides tons of instant moisture. I love the smell of rose hips,love everything except the price for a half ounce, ouch that's high....more info
  • hopeful cream
    Great product. I have normal/dry skin & this cream left my skin feeling quenched and supple. The smell is a bit noxious but I overlooked that due to the results I was getting....more info
  • Good product
    I usually buy this, strayed to Olay and was disappointed. Only problem is it dries up a bit in the jar...more info
