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.

Hasn't happened to me. Even though it might look like a heavy cream, it doesn't sit heavy on the face.

Hope is not enough has a faint smell which is pleasant and not over-whelming. It is creamy but not oily.

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

Question
Philosophy - Which one?
I'm 64 and have used 'hope in a jar' and was satisified with it although my skin really soaked it up and it didn't last very long. I have normal skin. I was wondering if one of the other moisturizers would be a better choice for me?

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?

It has a light pleasant (to my taste) smell. I haven't tied the other one to be able to compare fairly. I would just open it and smell it at the store, if you have one around.

It does have a slight scent, but it doesn't smell bad. I have a very sensitive nose, so anything other than a clean scent would bother me. I mostly use it at night though, so it's not truly an issue.

Question
Too heavy for acne prone skin?
My skin is awful. I have fair skin, dark hair and green eyes. My skin breaks out but it's very dry. I tried the bosia acne line and my face broke out. I just recently tried the murad line and my face didn't break out but dried out alot. Now I'm trying the philosophy purity cleanser with the kinerase spot treatment and my face is still dry so I need a good moisturizer. I picked up the clinique moisture surge and it doesn't moisturize. I also tried the cosmedicine primary care and it moisturizes more but is kind of greasy. I also tried the korres yogurt cream and that didn't moisturize me either. Can you help?

It probably sounds a little crazy, but good exfoliation is key because you need to get rid of the dry dead skin on your face. Otherwise, you will just be adding moisturizer on top of dead skin. You just need to be careful when exfoliating, not to actually scrub the blemishes because it will spread the bacteria. Be careful when choosing an acne product also because chances are you are stuck in a cycle of drying out your skin and then trying to rehydrate it. Help Me by Philosophy is a great product to help get your skin back into shape (it helps with the breakouts and with the fine lines and post acne spots), just make sure to wear a good sunscreen when using this product. As far as moisturizers, when my skin gets really dried out, I incorporate Bobbi Brown Extra Oil into my routine. Although it is an oil, it really works, and doesn't break me out...it actually seems to have some healing properties although that hasn't been proven. Your skin is probably breaking out because it is too dry...this can cause breakouts just like being too oily can. You definitely need a balance. Try the Help Me and maybe the Bobbi Brown Oil...the entire line of Philosophy make-up optional products really are good. I use the Purity, HIAJ, Help Me (at night only) When Hope Is Not Enough serum, Hope and a Prayer (morning only), Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash (to cleanse in the morning), and a series of peels and masks (also by Philosophy). I know it seems like a lot, but my skin has never looked better or clearer. They have some great deals on kits too! I always say if you don't take care of your skin, your skin won't take care of you! Hope this helps...sorry it was so long!
