Skin Care Review: Philosophy Hope in a Jar- Eye and Lip Firming Cream

by Melanie, Bonita, CA USA


Visible decrease in fine lines in eye area.

No visible impact on lines around mouth.

I have some sun damage and a lot of fine lines and creases in the eye area for my age (early 30s). Plain moisturizers have no impact on the skin around my eyes but I don't typically use products with harsh chemicals as my skin is easily irritated.

This cream doesn't work miracles but after about four days of A.M./P.M. use fine lines were noticeably less visible. Deeper creases remain. Thus I think this product would be ideal for those with fewer creases than I have (e.g. only fine lines). This cream has an unusual somewhat chalky texture in the jar and doesn't spread especially easily. Also leaves slight shiny residue on skin. But I say it is worth it. I have had no adverse reactions to this product. I don't think you could realistically ask for more.

This product is expensive in stores and apparently comes in a tube rather than a jar when it is full sized (called hope in a tube). Although I am ususally hesitant to pay so much for these types of products I do plan to purchase the full sized item when my sample runs out.

Overall a good product. I recommend you give it a try.
