  • "This is a very good moisturizer i really don't like that my moisturizers have smells to them because sometimes the fragrances can clog up your pores but using this has really helped my skin. It protects from any environmental damages and it is very hydrating the smell is the only downside but my skin looks so dewy and it is hypoallergenic so it wont clog pores. So anyone with acne prone skin this is your match made in heaven " in 97 reviews
  • "I've been a loyal customer of philosophy for as long as I can remember. Every winter I stock up on this stuff because my face gets so dry. After a couple of uses I noticed a huge change in my face. My face was back to glowing and it wasn't dry at all...and not too oily. Its great for year round dry skin too! I use it sometimes in the summer when my face decides to lose its moisture!" in 90 reviews

This product is very lightweight and leaves the skin glossy. I use it like butter all over my face and it just leaves my skin soft and pretty. It exceeded my expectations and I would but it again.

I REALLY wanted to like this product. The smell was great, the texture good but I just felt like it didnt hydrate my dry skin enough. I also did not like how my makeup slid off after I used it.

I am obsessed with this product. I goes on really smoothly and it absorbs really quickly, which is something I love, it is not greasy and moistures really well. I love to apply it in my daily basis and when dry spots.

Soo amazing! So moisturizing without that greasy feeling that you get with most moisturizer. I do not put on my makeup without applying this to my face first. I will continue to buy this!

Useless. This doesn't live up to any of it's promises, except moisturizing. Don't use if you wear makeup either, this seems to break it up badly, at least on my oily skin. Nope, no thanks.

I love this and have used it and rebought it many times. I know many others who have bought it as well. Very hydrating and good for overnight. The formula is so whipped and creamy!

I was sent a surprise sample in the mail just a foil pk but I used it every night for about five days and this will definitely be a repurchase. philosophy hope in a jar

This product is okay. I didn't think it was anything special and it was very expensive for the amount you get. I wasn't very impressed. I just think you could get the more of the same thing for cheaper.

BEST MOISTURIZER EVER!!!!! I purchased the travel sized product just to try it out and get a feel for it. I now understand what all the fuss is about. The formulation is like water going onto your face. It leaves my skin extra hydrated without feeling oily or sticky like other moisturizers can leave you skin. My skin is brighter and no longer oily in the T-zone. The product is very expensive but a jar can last you a long time because you don't need to apply a lot. Great for all skin types and tones. After discovering this product I will never use anything else on my face.

How has this really helped your skin, if at all? Is it worth the sticker price?

I used to love this product years ago, but it had almost an oily residue. Have you ever gotten this? Maybe it was just my jar?
