Ever since I was a teenager, looking after my skin had never really been a thought of mine, until I finally started to realise I am now closer to 30 than I am the side of forever youthful skin! So insert the hunt for some skincare that no longer consists of the oil free, acne fighting, skin stripping ingredients I thought I needed back in the day.
Fast forward to now, I would say my skin is more on the drier side. I still get the odd blackhead or pimple in that crease below your bottom lip, but apart from that I now need the kind of skincare that is going to brighten, nourish and HYDRATE!
That's where this little gem comes in.
The Philosophy Renewed Hope In A Jar Dry found itself in my life to test out and try and I must say I was very much a fan from the moment I tried it on the back of my hand.
This is a super nourishing, lightweight, yet very hydrating creamy moisturiser with a really lovely scent. It sinks into the skin making it feel so plump and supple after you've used it. I think it definitely leaves you with glowing skin. It became a firm favourite in my nightly skincare routine.
It could definitely be used day and night but I prefer my SPF daily moisturiser for the daytime.
I think they have described it down to a tee on the packaging. Refreshing and refining. This cream contains a triple blend of AHA's which help to exfoliate and renew the skin cells. Don't be scared off by this! This is what gives you that beautiful glow!
I sometimes have a little skin sensitivity, when it comes to harsh exfoliators (even some cleansing wipes can sting my skin)
This cream has caused no redness, stinging or discomfort whatsoever. Just pure, lush, soft, yummy skin.
One important thing to note when using anything with AHA's is to make sure you wear an SPF out in the day time as you may burn a little easier with the fresh new skin being uncovered.
There are literally no negatives towards this cream for me. I did a little research online and did see that a few people didn't think it was as good as the original Hope in a Jar, but I cannot make comment on that as I had never used it.
This beauty is available online at adorebeauty.com.au for $55AUD for a 60ml jar.
I am super keen now to try other Philosophy products. I think the next purchase will be the matching eye cream.
