Hope in a Jar Review

Aside from making some personal and professional goals, one thing I love to do at the beginning of a new year is switch up my beauty routine and try some new products (which also includes tossing out all those products that I never use!) It’s nice to switch up my routine every once in a while and it’s the perfect time to do so! Besides, your skin deserves a little renewing and pampering too, am I right? That’s exactly what I did the beginning of January.
I’m happy to share with you all today the best moisturizer ever… Philosophy Renewed Hope in a Jar

The moisturizer aims to refine texture and pores, provide all day hydration, and give a healthy color and glow. I have been using it for 2 months now and I have seen an improvement in hydration, firmness and a decrease in fine lines. My texture is really hard to tackle, so I’ll be giving it a little longer before I can totally throw out everything else. As far as hydration, it is perfect for oily or combination skin. It glides on as a lightweight formula, leaving skin smooth and fresh looking. It causes no irritation even when I have breakouts, and after a few days of usage I noticed my complexion had brightened and appeared to be glowing.

The brightening and glowing happens from the affect of the triple blend of alpha-hydroxy acids which gently exfoliates skin. It helps to keep your skin rejuvenated and so far, I’m seeing this which is exactly what I needed!

I captured before – and –  after pictures of my skin within the first two months of using this product. I am showing my all natural and freshly showered side so here is baring it all and seeing every flaw of my face. I was a little iffy about posting these but I was just so impressed with the amazing results of this product! So here is the paleness that is my skin… 🙂

The first pictures show the crows-feet and smile wrinkles.

I have noticed my skin tighter, fresher and the lines and wrinkles diminishing. I have used Arbonne, Nerium and Mary Kay products before but none of them have changed my skin like this. I can actually feel it tightening about 10 minutes after applying and it smells great too. That is a great feeling knowing you paid for a great product!

The second pictures show my forehead wrinkles. (Please excuse my brown roots in the first one, I was long over due for highlights)

I can not get over how tight my forehead is in only 2 months. Who needs botox when you pretty much can buy it in a bottle for a whole lot less 🙂

I purchased my product at Ulta but it is carried at other stores as well. I have linked the locations and prices below:

2 ounce jar

Ulta Renewed Hope in a Jar – $47

Nordstrom Renewed Hope in a Jar  – $52

Sephora Renewed Hope in a Jar – $47

Macys Renewed Hope in a Jar – $47

 What are some of your favorite skincare products? Brands? Moisturizers?

  • I love philosophy products. Awesome!

  • I have acne prone skin. Do you think i should try it? I’m scared to try anything because it’s 2-3 months of clearing up my skin again if anything goes wrong 🙁 great review though!

    • I have the same issue – it did not make mine worse but didnt really help diminish the acne either. It is more for firming and tightening but I LOVE it! 🙂

  • Wow! That’s incredible! Thanks for the review & pics, girl!

  • Thanks for providing the link. Oh, wow! It’s out of stock at Sephora. It must be in demand.

  • Those are amazing results! I need to go to Sephora and get a sample of this.

    • It took a couple weeks before I noticed anything but it really does tighten up the skin… love it 🙂

  • Now I really have to get my hands on this again!! Amazing!! This used to be my all time go to and then I switched it up and haven’t gotten back around to it yet!

  • I have face wash,still not sure if I like this products,but I def. love their other products!!!Great review,make me wanna go to Sephora and buy this products

  • Heya Brittany. Had a beauty question 🙂 Do you use the one with SPF or without SPF ? I am seeing bad reviews for the one with SPF and in Sephora, they have recommended to use a sunscreen in case you are using the renewed hope in a jar without SPF. I am always wary of applying sunscreen on my face as mine is sensitive and acne prone.

  • Eeeks! Just now saw that you use the overnight cream! Sorry for bothering you 🙁 And that still leaves me with a question what sunscreen should I use for my face 🙁
