These is no doubt that Philosophy knows what they're doing when it comes to skincare. This product just did not really do anything for me. Yes it moisturized my skin but it didn't do anything different than a cheaper moisturizer could have done. It does feel nice on the skin though.

I love this product, however in the summer months I tend to only use it at night, because it does contain alpha hydroxy acid, and It can increase sunburn.
The product itself feels great, and makes my face feel wonderful.

If your a big fan of the philosophy original hope in a jar, but not a fan of the smell or texture then this product is a must have for you. Similar to the original hope in a jar as far as results go, but it is more of your average cream lotion as opposed to the whipped light texture of the original HIAJ. The scent is much more pleasing to the nose as well. It is a light florally spa like scent that diminishes as soon as you massage it in. Even my boyfriend is obsessed with the scent. The moisturizer itself gives amazing results, not only is it hydrating but it is packed with AHA acids that help lift dead skin off the skins surface giving you a much more clear and radiant complexion. I use this moisturizer in the morning about 5 minutes before my primer and foundation and it is all nice and soaked in by that time. This is perfect for all skin types, but since I'm severely dry i use a richer moisturizer in the night time. Philosophy just came out with the renewed HIAJ night cream and these two paired together are a dream.

I bought this as part of a holiday kit and I loved it! I used it at night with an oil and it was perfect for my combo dry-acne prone skin. It was gentle and hydrating. It's a bit too expensive for me right now, but maybe once I use up everything else I have, I can repurchase

got this from a friend as a gift and I absolutely loved it. my skin felt soft and never got irritated. very pleasing scent as philosophy does scents very well with nothing overpowering. only downside for me is cost. not something I can keep repurchasing every time I'm out.

This really is a good moisturizer, smells good and goes on smooth but it is not good for those with oily skin. This actually made my face look more oily quicker I was really disappointed. Also took away a star for the price, I think there are more affordable moisturizers that work just as well.

I was always a believer in using cheaper lotions until I used this. This is AMAZING. I have dry skin and it makes my face hydrated and feeling smooth. It is light and not oily but heavy enough to be hydrating to dry skin. I use this every day and don't regret spending money on it.

I love this moisturizer. I bought it when I was on my way out of the country to the Caribbean. I wanted something that would have a little coverage, but not be too heavy like foundation while I was out in the sun and around the pool. This gave me the perfect results.

I got two mini samples from sephora of the renewed hope in a jar and I love it!
it's got a nice light clean scent and is not too heavy. I can see myself using this 2x a day because it's so light feeling and really makes my skin feel good. A great everyday moisturizer!

I love the Philosophy body lotions and lip glosses so I thought I would like this as well. I've heard really good things from my friends. Unfortunately, this formula clogged my pores and gave me a ton of milia around my eyes. I also was not a fan of the smell.
