That depends on the face wash that you use. WIth most face washes…yes. I use Philosophy's Purity as my face wash and it's really gentle but cleansing and it is a face wash and toner in 1 so no toner is necessary.

You don't ever really NEED a toner for anything. They're great if you like how they make your skin feel, and they exfoliate a bit, but they are one of the more unnecessary items in your skin care arsenal. This stuff is non-greasy, absorbs well and smells good.

I'm using Miracle Worker as well, when to use Hope in a Jar SPF 20
I just purchased Miracle Worker, which I LOVE! I know I still need to use SPF in the AM, so do I use Miracle Worker first and then apply HIAJ? Or do I use just SPF in the AM and Miracle Worker in the PM?

I would definitely use the SPF in the morning because then you'll be covered from the UVBs during the day. You don't need that when you're going to bed. You'll want to use the MiracleWorker at night so that your skin will it in during its overnight restorative process. Hope this helped!

i found this very confusing (the box instructions are very vague and misleading, imo) so i called sephora today. don't wait til the next morning to use a moisturizer. when you're ready to call it a day (4pm, 5pm, you don't have to wait til bedtime) clean face with gentle cleanser (i use philosophy purity) and then "swipe" face with m. worker pad - avoid eye area. wait 5-10 minutes and apply moisturizer - i'm using hope in a jar w/spf (they were out of m. worker lotion). i was doing it all wrong before (see previous post). hope this helps!

I can't determine whether I should be buying Hope in a Jar spf20 or When Hope is Not Enough with SPF - I am 41, fair/sensitive/combination skin, and I have purity cleanser, but my other moisturizer is not working with it (not enough moisture between the two of them). What would you suggest? Thanks!

When Hope Is Not Enough is very moisturizing and makes your skin look and feel great-This is my favorite Philosophy product. I have oily skin during the day, but at night after cleansing, it feel dry and tight, so i use this as a night time moisturizer. I wake up w/my skin looking so hydrated and refreshed, that all i need during the day is a light lotion.
It's a great product!

i'm 41, too, and i have fairly dry skin. i've responded to a few girls' questions because i feel really passionate about this. like me, you're probably finished having children but hope in a jar using oxybenzone as it's primary sunscreen ingredients. oxybenzone is known reproductive hormone disrupter. i'm just so tired of all the toxic chemicals being added to our skincare products. i just purchase sephora's collection facial moisturizer and when i looked up the ingredient list i was grossed out actually. it's a bunch of fillers and questionable preservatives. i do not have any affiliation with this company at all but check out magnomadnessskincare.com. i know it's a lame name but their moisturizers are awesome. best of luck.

I have really dry skin and I use both along with the Purity cleanser. The one with SPF is little thicker to the touch but has the same end result as the non-SPF one: lightweight, not greasy, absorbs quickly and very moisturizing. If you are outside a lot I would definitely go for the one with SPF

Question
Hope in the Jar SPF 25 Vs. Hope in the Jar for Dry skin no SPF?
Need Help!

I was in the store for 2 hours today trying to find a new moisturizer. The one I am using doesn't do it for me anymore and I need a change! I have normal to dry skin but a little on the dryer side. I was leaning towards hope in a jar for dry skin but didn't like that it doesn't have an SPF in it so then I was looking at the hope in the jar SPF 25. The Sephora specialist recommended that I'd get the SPF moisturizer along with when hope is not enough in the blue bottle to use at night time.

I am 30 years old with olive skin tone which doesn't burn easily and is very smooth with minimal breakouts. Need some advice!

I initially got a sample when my skin was really dry for winter. It worked really well. I love it! When I went back to purchase it, I got it with SPF 25 and it works just as well. I would definitely recommend getting it with SPF especially as we go into the summer months. Remember - a little goes a long way so just get the small jar and try it out. If you like it, go back and get the bigger jar when you run out.

I would try Caudalie's Day Perfecting Creme (spf 15). Since it sounds like you don't easily burn that should provide enough sun protection. It also evens your skin tone over time. This product is sold at Sephora as well. It has higher ratings than this product, which is worth considering.

I too have normal to dry but more on the dry side. I had the same dilemma as you because as soon as I seen for dry skin I thought great that's for me. But the SPF beat out the other hope in a jar for dry skin. I personally rather have a moisturizer with an SPF. I have been using hope in a jar SPF 25 now for about two week twice a day and I have no complaints I love it.

I would stick with the Hope In A Jar without SPF. I've tried both, have clear and normal/dry skin, and the version with SPF made me breakout significantly. It also felt extremely greasy on my face. I love the regular non-SPF version, and just put on a light, oil-free spf with it instead :-)

Hope that helps!

I also use a tinted moisturizer with SPF for my makeup and find between all this I get good moisture coverage and SPF coverage. I am also not into the matte look but my face is not greasy looking either. Hope this helps. :)

go to mangomadnessskincare.com. it's the dopiest name for a skincare line but when i tried it i was extremely happy and always end up back with their products. and i've tried them ALL - la mer, cle de peau, etc. they're moisturizers are totally natural and will absolutely give you the hydration you need. this one was just ordinary. i think your going to need a separate spf in conjunction with a great facial moisturizer to get your the protection you need. and they offer free shipping and no sales tax! good luck.

This product is perfect for p.m. retinol users..it's a moisturizer w/SPF, and if your skin is dried out, this will totally "renew" your dry, scaly areas..you will feel the difference immediately. Just make sure to wash off the night cream before moisturizer application in the A.M.

Yes, but just use it sparingly since your skin is already naturally oily anyways. Or else it will make your face look too greasy and shiny and might even clog up your pores. I wouldn't worry about whether or not this product contains oil because acne is mainly caused by bacteria, not oil. So if you maintain good hygiene then it reduces the chances of you getting acne blemishes.

I don't recommend trying it- people with sensitive skin have broken out. I just don't think the cost is justified. I'd suggest you try the regular version of the lotion if you want to.
It does have oil listed in the ingredients- it didn't feel particularly greasy to me, but I used it VERY sparingly (ie I just touched my finger to it and smoothed it over a small area of my face... ).

Question
Really the best moisturizer out there?
I was at Sephora a few weeks back, buying a refill for my beloved Purity Made Simple, and some lady who works for Philosophy came up to me and asked if I also used Hope in a Jar. I said no and she showed me it and gave me a sample of it to take home... well, I tried it one day and I'm really not sure what to make of it.
If I were to get this it would be in the SPF form, so my first question is, is the SPF version as good as the regular version? Also, it smelled a little weird, not overpowering, just... weird. I remember thinking, what's the big deal about this? Maybe I just have to keep using it?
Right now I use Biore skin preservation dual moisturizer SPF 30, which I like, but it doesn't absorb too well and if I rub my concealer in too much it gets sort of flakey and weird.
Would this be a good product to use? I love Purity Made Simple and apparently this stuff is amazing too, but I wanted to make sure it would work for me, especially with SPF.
