a bit stinky

Sorry, but I don’t see what all the fuss is. I had a tough time with the smell of this. Sort of a strange aroma. Nothing great as far as creaminess. I’d rather use Oil Of Olay from CVS. Still searching for a good skin cream for my 43 year old, hyperpigmented-from-the-sun-and-age, combination skin.

I absolutely LOVE all the Philosophy items in my daily/nighly regimen! I use the Hope in a Jar as my morning cream it is a light cream which makes it great for daytime use. 🙂 I LOVE ALL my PHILOSOPHY PRODUCTS!! I am not sure why people mention the smell, it isn’t that bad and it fades quickly.

Is What It Says, “Hope” in a Jar

*****This has been my daily moisturizer for several years. It makes my skin very soft, very healthy looking, and glowing. It makes me look radiant. I have given it as a gift to my sister and to other women, and they have all liked it as much as I have. No one has had any adverse reactions. You can notice a difference after just one use. When I’ve run out and used something else temporarily, I always can see the difference again once I start back up. It is as close as it gets to a miracle cream.I do not wear makeup, so Hope In A Jar is it. I am 49 years old and I think my skin looks incredible. The friends I have given it to also like to keep a natural look and prefer their skin without heavy creams, thick moisturizers and sunscreens, or makeup.The women I know who are fans of Hope In A Jar are like me. We’re kind of lazy no-fuss “one cream that does it all” people; instead of one jar of something for one thing, and another for something else—eye creams, night time moisturizers, daytime moisturizers, etc.—we’re the type that wants just one that can do the job and then be done with it. In other words, we don’t have the patience to fuss with our looks a lot, or to spend money buying bunches of different creams to keep track of and remember to use.Unlike other reviewers, I love the smell, which is not perfumey, but definitely pleasantly distinctive. I use it around my eyes also, and have not had an allergic reaction. It seems, though, that these are the two biggest problems with Hope—the distinctive odor and allergic reactions among some people. I would suggest buying it the first time from somewhere you could return it if you don’t care for it; although in my opinion, this would be unlikely, apparently it is possible. Philosophy now makes another version of Hope In A Jar for sensitive skin; if you know that your skin in tempermental, perhaps it would be better to also try this version. I have stuck with Hope In A Jar because it works so well for me.It seems expensive, but it is not because it lasts a long, long time. The two-ounce jar lasts me about six months. I use a toner and then Hope In A Jar and that’s it. I’m done with my face in 30 seconds. Plus, it gives me a look that most women use makeup to get, so I think it’s a bargain.****

I swear by this product!

Great price on a fantastic product. I’ve been using HOPE for a few years, and recommend it to all who ask what my secret is. I’m 52, but look close to 35!
