  • "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

A very light moisturizer that has a pleasant clean smell. Kind of reminds me of some diaper rash creams, which is odd.. that could just be me, but the texture is different... definitely not diaper rash cream. lol My boyfriend even likes wearing this moisturizer and it is my go to.

It is a great moisturizer. I received a sample of this and used it during the summer only. It is moisturizing without the sticky feelings to it, and your skin absorbs it very quickly. I wouldn't use it for the winter since I have dry/normal skin. But it is great for the summer.

This makes my skin so unbelievably soft. I first got a sample from a friend who worked at Sephora and once I tried it I had to buy the real thing. It's a great moisturizer and doesn't feel oily at all.

This was the first product I had ever tried from the Philosophy brand and I have been hooked ever since! It really is hope in a jar. My skin's overall appearance and elasticity improved with this product. It also makes a wonderful gift because we all love to feel pampered.

I like this moisturizer, it really does keep my face soft and moisturized. It's gentle on the skin and doesn't leave my face greasy or anything. The price for a jar of this moisturizer is worth it, I would buy this again and I would also buy the night time cream too!

This is a high-end moisturizer and it works pretty decent for me. The reason I gave it a 4 star, is because, on days where my skin is SUPER dry, I apply this moisturizer and it locks in the moisture. It feels really refreshing on my dry skin (especially during the winter).

This was my first favorite high end moisturizer, I loved it it was moisturizing and it really plumped the skin. I quit using it due to it being very citrusy fragranted and it irrirtated my eyes from being so fragranted. If that doesn't irritate you I highly recommend.

I love this so much!! It's so smooth, creamy, and light. I have oily skin and this still hydrates it enough but doesn't make it super oily. It just melts into the skin like butter. Well worth the money.

Very hydrating without feeling thick. My skin is very dry in the winter so I love using this during the colder months. I knocked off a star because it's in a jar and that's not always the cleanest way to apply any face product but it's still worth it in my opinion.

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