Philosophy: renewed hope in a jar
A few months ago I was on the hunt for a new daily moisturiser and after reading a bunch of reviews and researching way too many brands, I finally settled on this PHILOSOPHY Renewed Hope In A Jar; I was after something mid price point trying to restrain my beauty budget but still quality for my sensitive skin and this did the trick at $55AUD. It's main offering is that it's a refreshing and refining moisturiser that's packed with antioxidants, it also gently exfoliates which I thought was weird at first with new texture of it, but now I don't even notice and it certainly is refreshing and feels light and airy. It has a lovely subtle scent and non-greasy which is a major necessity, especially in the Australian climate of extreme heat and humidity!! I bought this in Summer so it went through it's real test of expectations and not once did I have any regrets, it was perfect! Now in Winter however, my skin is crazy dry thanks to my workplace where I actually have to wear 4 layers of clothes to avoid the sensation of frost bite.....hence feeling super chapped all over!! This moisturiser doesn't cut it, yet not even the thick night cream I'm wearing during the day does... With that being said for me this is an awesome moisturiser for the hotter months where you need something refreshingly hydrating and not greasy, but in the cold months your skin made need something extra... Everyone's skin is different so I definitely recommend reading a variety of reviews and information before making individual skin care decisions.
