  • "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 moisturizer is really great. All skin types can use it as it seems to help adjust your skin so it's less dry or less oily... Whatever your skin needs are. It doesn't feel heavy and a little goes a a looooong way.

Okay so the smell is a little "pharmaceutical" but otherwise this cream is great. I use it in combination with the night cream. The original HIAJ is light and sinks into your skin like it's taking a drink of water.

I love this moisturizer! It's the best one I've ever used! I don't have any bad reactions to it and it just sinks into my skin. My only problem is that it is very expensive and it's very easy to go through a lot.

I love the smell of hope in a jar! All philosophy products are made with the user in mind. My face feels smooth with no greasy feeling afterward. The packaging is nice and clearly marked as a philosophy product.

Truly love the way my skin feels. I mostly use it at night but have also used it underneath my make up in the morning and it last through out the day without feeling oily or greasy.

This is probably one of my most used products that I have. In the winter time my skin gets really dry in some places but oily in other places and this is one of the few products that works without making the oily part oilier but helps the dry parts. I would definitely recommend this to anyone

I have a small sample of this and it is very moisterizing for dry/combination skin.
I use it for my cuticles and hands before I go to bed and it works very well!

I first tried this when I saw it on Oprah's "favorite things". It is wonderful! It's a great value for the price as it lasts a long time. The packing is great and so is the smell. This is definitely worth a try!
