I purchased Philosophy's Hope in a Jar about 2 months ago. Every time I watched a beauty guru's video on YouTube, read a blog, or went on to a website with favorite moisturizers they all raved about Hope in a Jar. It also has 4.1 out of 5 stars on Sephora's website. It says it is 99.9% oil-free, deeply hydrating, lightweight wonder designed to smooth the complexion while reducing the appearance of wrinkles and discoloration. So I thought this would be the product for me because I have very oily, sensitive skin.
I personally think that this was the biggest waste of my money! I did not like Hope in a Jar at all. It does not feel lightweight at all, actually it feels very heavy! My face felt so icky all day when I wore this under my makeup. And the smell....ohh the smell..It has a terrible smell! I could smell it all day! It is also pretty pricey for a moisturizer. It is $39 for the 2 oz. at Sephora.
I did like that it is made without Sulfates, Synthetics Dyes, and Phthalates. I really like Philosophy as a brand, so I am really bummed that this product was such a let down for me.
