Reader Review of the Day: Philosophy Hope in a Jar For Dry, Sensitive Skin

Reader Review of the Day: Philosophy Hope in a Jar For Dry, Sensitive Skin

Sometimes you run into a nasty case of product fatigue. You buy something, it works well for a little while, and then one day totally lets you down. This seems to be the case for reader Yoiebear when it comes to Philosophy Hope in a Jar for Dry, Sensitive Skin ($38). She says:

I still can't decide what I think about this moisturizer. It works great the first couple of weeks, then suddenly becomes oily and won't absorb. When it just sits on my face, I start to break out more than normal (adult acne is not a good friend), and I have to stop using it. The smell is also a turn-off, but I could get past it if the product didn't seem to have a greasy base.

Love something so much you want to shout it from the rooftops? Just broke out from something not so nice? Maybe you want to see how well that moisturizer you're about to buy works for other people? Get thee to our Product Reviews pages, then. It's a great way to inform others about the products you try and find out for yourself before you purchase, too.

In my opinion, this product is analogous to Neutrogena's Healthy Skin. It even smells the same.

Hi pharm_chick, Oh bummer! All of our Product Reviews products come from retailers we've partnered with through If you don't see your favorite Curel Anti-Itch Therapy on there it's because those retailers don't sell it. Would you want to try reviewing it on our community pages?

I also use hope in a jar with spf and it's great. I have acne prone oily skin, as well. The spf formula doesn't have the strong scent that the regular hope in a jar has.

This product was terrible for me. It caused me to break out terribly. Also, it smells like wet dog. However, I've read raves of this product, so it must work well for certain individuals and skin types.

I love Hope in a Jar, I use the SPF formula and it's done nothing but work wonders for me. I also have oily acne prone skin that can get dry in certain areas and it doesn't irritate. As for the smell I think it's fresh it doesn't smell like it's just packed with horribly heavy perfumes.
