  • "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

I used to swear by this cream. I really love this - everything from the simple packaging to the scent to the moisturizing effect. It was a great product for me in my teens!

Love this moisturizer! I first received it as a sample from Sephora and had to go back and buy it! Very hydrating and has a settle scent. Makes my skin feel amazing!

Best moisturizer hands down, it's not super thick which I do happen to live in face moisturizers but it's amazing. My makeup doesn't move or crease when I use my Hope in a Jar I will forever suggest it to everyone!

I hate this lotion. It breaks me out. It also has a really watery texture and smells so weird like chemicals. It feels very very thin on the skin and it doesn't moisturize that well.

I could not get over how terrible this product smelled for me to sample it for a long enough period. I'm sure it would be a good product if they changed the smell

Worked on my dry skin right away. Not watery like other products. Doesn't have an overwhelming perfume smell. I would definitely use this product again.

Amazing product. Kind of pricey but it works so well. It moisturizes without feeling heavy or oily on the skin. And it smells great too! I love it!!

It's very greasy, and the scent is TERRIBLE. scents don't usually bother me at all, but this is so so so chemically that i just can't handle it.
