Hope is a jar is literally made from butter churned by angles. This stuff is magic, I can go to bed with rough dry skin and slap this sucker on before bed and wake up the next day withal in as soft as a babies butt. Not only does it work amazingly but it smells great too!

Not greasy, yet extremely hydrating! Isn't that what everyone wants in a moisturizer? Does not effect make-up application and is also great for sensitive skin. It is even safe to use around your eye area without irritation. At this price point, this is a great option.

This is my every night face regimen and I have always been a really hesitant person when it comes to so called miracle creams...but I absolutely adore this cream! It makes my skin so soft and I have noticed my face seems more alive! I highly recommend this product!!

I can't date bought about this cream, it took care of the weird winter dry patches I got on my face within 2 days. It's a little heavy, but for the moisture I get, it's worth it. I would defiantly not use it for under a foundation. But after cleansing is wonderful.

Hope in A Jar is such an amazing moisturizer! I use it morning and night, and it's not too heavy and doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy at all! Hope in A Jar keeps my face moisturized all days and gives my skin a natural glow! I would definitely recommend to others

The best facial lotion hands down. I use it every night after the purity face wash. It is pricey but WORTH IT! My face feels moisturized without feeling greasy, heavy, or sticky. Whenever I run out of this and temporarily use something else I can definitely feel it.

I think this is a great moisturizer to use at night , but it is quite heavy to use for day time. My skin is combination but this seems to pull out my oils more. It's a very slippery type moisturizer and I don't feel like it ever fully absorbs into my face. Would probably be great for someone with dryer skin.

I've been using Hope in A Jar ever since I tried a sample from ULTA a few years back, and it's been my absolute favorite evermore. It's a wonderful moisturizer that goes on very wet but absorbs extremely quickly. It's an amazing little product to have in winter, and it tackles even the flakiest skin. I buy the day/night combo every year for great upkeep for my skin.

Best daily moisturizer I've ever used. I think it even works to fight blemishes. The only thing I don't like is the smell... The Renewed version of the product is missing the smell but the moisturizer doesn't work as well for some reason. I guess the formulation is changed when you have to mask the scent.

I love everything about this product except for the smell! It's great for sensitive, dry skin and leaves your skin feeling smooth, hydrated, but not greasy. The only thing I disliked about this product was the smell (and the price) I found that this smells a bit like playdough.

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

How is this product on sensitive skin? My skin is dry and tends to be irritated very easily.
