I did not like the smell or the way it turned watery upon application.

I have used many top brand moisturizers (Lancome, Estee Lauder, Avon, Neutogena, etc.) and have found this to be the best, lightest one.

I love this facial moisturizer because it absorbs into the skin, and leaves skin feeling soft without any oily look.

Like most women of a certain age, I have bought many brands of moisturizers and spent way too much money on stuff that just plain did nothing for me. With each purchase I had hoped that I would find a moisturizer that would actually DO something positive for my skin. Some moisturizers were too oily resulting in break outs or a patent leather shine (ugh). Most were irritating and perfumey resulting in red, blotchy skin. None did anything for my enlarged pores or lines. Finally, skeptically, I tried philosophy's hope in a jar. I LOVE IT! Your skin will be moisturized but not greasy. It did not irritate my extremely sensitive skin. My skin looks radiant and much less red. My fine lines are reduced and my enlarged pores look better. I like hope in a jar better than Estee Lauder, Elizabeth Arden, Clinique, Celex C, Avon, Mary Kay, Clarins, Biotherm, Prescriptives, Oil of Olay and even La Mer. Try hope in a jar. You'll be a happy, repeat customer, too.

I have sensitive skin. I was apprehensive about purchasing a new moisturizer. I had been a DEDICATED neutragena user for over like 20 yrs. Anyway, Hope in a Jar is fabulous. It feels like cream but quickly dissolves into a water like substance once it hits your skin. Super moisturizing. You never feel like you need to re-apply later. If you're prone to acne then also get Hope in a Bottle. You cannot go wrong with purchasing ANY Philosophy products and I should know b/c I own a whole bunch of them!

My review is based on my own skin type.

I do not have dry skin. I have dehydrated/thirsty OILY skin. I'm EXTREMELY acne prone due to high sebum production. Because of that, it is very very difficult for me to find a moisturizer. The only one other than hope in a jar that I've enjoyed (which I still do, VERY MUCH) is Clinique Moisture Surge - Unfortunately it's a bit too pricy for me.

With that said, what I first noticed about the product:

The odor: It has true lavender oil in it, and you can tell. It's not strong, and though some people find it unpleasant, I certainly do not.

The consistency: I was hoping for a gel type but it's not. It's more of a cream. However, it's very very light.

Application: A little goes a long way. Though it's a cream, it spread on very smoothly.

The first impression: "Oh great, another cream that's going to just turn me into an oil slick within 15 minutes."

The final impression: "WOW!!"

So it took about 5-10 minutes for it to fully soak in, but it actually did (which is a surprise). My skin did not suck it up as quickly as the moisture surge, but unlike the Clinique Moisture Surge, it seems to be just the right combination of moisture addition, and moisture retention (something I feel the Moisture Surge Lacks).

After the product was fully absorbed, my skin looked fresh and dewy (no, it's not a miracle cream, it just gave my skin the non-dehydrated look).

Hours later, no oil slick... in fact I do believe that rather than increasing sebum it actually decreased it (probably due to the actual hydration it recieved).

Days later, my skin actually looks like it's improving.

I will definitely be purchasing this product again, and again. Which is honestly the first time, after years of searching, that I have been able to say this for any moisturizer other than Clinique Moisture Surge.

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.

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 drawback....no sunscreen protection.

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.

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!

I absolutely love this product. I cant believe philosophy always has everything 100% right. It's moisturizing, clean smelling, and is so creamy. And I would suggest anyone with dry skin to use it.
