You can use it during the day, but make sure you use a foundation with SPF coverage or a separate sunscreen.

I really like the Bliss line; they have an amazing peel!

For more sensitive skin try Juice Beauty Apple Peel. I've used both products and has great results. (They are both available at Sephora)

This will not necessarily peel your skin, but will help it become smoother and keep it hydrated. I think you should try Help Me, which is a retinol treatment, that may peel your skin, but Philosophy's Help Me with retinol seems to be gentle (on me anyway - a new person to retinol), it just might not peel your skin. However, it does provide cell turn over benefits, which will lead to skin renewal (I am excited about this!). I also would say try the Microdelivery Peel, which also helps skin through the renewal process. If not, glycolic acid can also help shed surface skin (retinol goes deeper into the pore). Hoped this helped.

I'm fairly sure that this is not the product for that. You would want to try Philosophy's oxygen peel line or the microdelivery? line instead.

No, you don't need anything else. This is your night cream. The only other things I use with it are target items like, eye cream or AHA to even skin tone.

I have bought the Phlosophy retinol capsules and mixed them with this product first, and used on the fine lines and wrinkles. Then I use the product by itself for an overall GREAT moisturizing effect on your face and throat area. Great for overnight, you really don't have to use anything else!!!

Hope is not enough is a night cream, while Hope in a jar is your daytime moisturizer. I have both and love them!

When Hope isNot Enough is more dense and I think much easier to apply and absorbs better. I have both, and the Hope in a jar is not as good for drier skin, it is a real comfort to a dry face and I use it on my hands also.

Question
When Hope is Not Enough or Miracle Worker
I have heard that Hope in a Jar should be used for day and either When Hope is Not Enough or Miracle Worker should be used at night. I've been using Hope in a Jar both day and night. Is one of these better that the other? Are they both sold in your store? Also, is the Purity Cleanser and Exfoliating Cleaner sold in your store or do they need to be ordered?

It depends on how dry your skin gets - I use Miracle and When Hope is not Enough at night - if I had to choose, I'd go for WHINE. But my skin is much brighter after a month using Miracle. I'll probably stop using that for a month or so and then go back on. Both products deliver, though.

Depends on your skin type. I have dry skin and use When Hope is NOT enough at night and the moisturizer w/SPF for day. I also use the serum both day and night and the retinol cream at night. You can find all Philosophy products at the store or online.

It is definitely heavier. It has an almost waxy texture; think shea butter. (Despite this, it has never given me a break-out.)

Question
How to apply When Hope is Not Enough
The consistency of this product is very different. It says to warm between the fingertips before applying. On their website it says to Pat or Press it into the skin. Does EVERYONE that uses this product pat it in, or can you just massage it after you warm it up?
