Questions & Answers for Philosophy Hope In A Jar Therapeutic Moisturizer For Dry Sensitive Skin

Question
Fragrance
Hi,
I was wondering if this has a fragrance like the other Hope products? The original Hope in a Jar has a strong lavender scent that prevents me from using that product. Thanks

I would be very careful about applying anything under your eyes unless the product specifies that it is intended for use around the eyes. And as long as you haven't had a bad reaction to it, it's fine to use at night.

I generally use it at night, but after reading the reviews, I'm not sure if that is what was intended for this product. I did not see any application instructions on the jar.

I have been using this product for both day and night for a couple of weeks with no problems. However, there is no SPF in this particular lotion, so I will be purchasing the one with SPF for the daytime. It's not too heavy for daytime use though... just use sparingly. A little bit goes a long way!

I have combination skin so the regular Hope in a Jar is too light for the dry areas. I had to switch to the dry, sensitive version, but it's a little heavy for the oily spots. I use this every night since I don't care about shine at home and then in the morning I use a lighter lotion by Bliss.

While I don't have any skin problems generally speaking, I am finding this formula very soothing and non-irritating. I haven't had any trouble with it yet. If it doesn't work for you, you can always return the product to Sephora.

I have had fantastic results from it with no irritation whatsoever. However, your condition may prove your skin to be much more sensitive than mine. As a nurse, I can tell you that if this doesn't work, I know that a significant number of patients whose treatments leave them with sloughing skin do well with semi-solid coconut oil that comes in a jar. Hope this helps!

Yes! I have incredibly sensitive skin, and I react very badly to most moisturizers, including those labeled for people with sensitive skin. This moisturizer is perfect; I never feel any sort of irritation. It doesn't have any icky fragrances or irritating ingredients. Actually, this is true for all of Philosophy's products :)

I have the same problem and was diagnosed with rosacea. I was given a prescription that helps with the redness (metro-gel) but made my skin flaky dry. When used in combination with the Hope in a Jar for dry sensitive my redness went away and may skin balanced out.

If your skin becomes more sensitive when it is dry and/or is dry, this would be an excellent moisturizer for your concerns.

However, if your skin reacts negatively to all of the skincare items you have used, we would suggest that you speak with a dermatologist.

If you are able to use over-the-counter products please contact us for a customized beauty consultation at 877-SEPHORA (877-737-4672) so that we may help you to create a regimen to suit your needs.

I've never had any problem with returning things to Sephora. Also, they will let you take home a sample (enough for a week or so) to try out. When I've been unsatisfied in the past, they have taken it back, even if I've been using it. Of course, you can't return an empty jar and ask for your money back, but if it's fairly new they will usually give you at least store credit.

It does have oil in it, however I believe the type of oil they use has particles to large to sit into your pores and have a negative effect (not all oil is bad for your skin).
