renewed hope in a jar all-day skin-renewing moisturizer
Rated 5 out of 5 by tnbella from My new favorite, or at least a close tie When this entered the lineup of philosophy products I thought to myself, why mess with perfection? I was indeed skeptical. I purchased it at an Ulta and thought what the heck. This formulation is very light and fast absorbing. It soaks into the skin rather quickly so you aren't waiting all morning for your skin to apply so you can apply your make up. It is reminiscent of the Original Hope in a Jar but the smell is softer. A little goes a long way and after a few days of consistent use, you will notice the increased smoothness in your skin. Mine appears more supple and my wrinkles are softer. It is tied as my favorite moisturizer next to the Miracle Worker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by fishie from great for those using retin a I have been going crazy trying to find a balance with my acne and my retin a (tretinoin) cream. I don't use my prescription cream and my face breaks out and is endlessly greasy but my prescription cream dries me out and can make me red and flaky. I have tried SO many cleansers and moisturizers. Back in the day I used Hope in a Jar and loved it. I saw the Renewed Hope in a Jar and thought I would give it a shot (science says the alpha-hydroxy acids can help balance the the retin a cream) Finally, I am flake free and acne free. Plus, my pores are smaller since using the Renewed Hope. If you are using tretinoin, tazarotene, adapalene you MUST try this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by geezlouize from Better than it used to be!!! I have used philosophy products off and on since 2005 or earlier. Hope in a jar was something I wanted to love, but that was not the case, didn't like the smell, it seemed to leave a film, or wasn't being absorbed, even when I used a small amount. Today I received a sample of renewed hope in a jar, washed my face and applied.... 1st thing I noticed was the scent, it is wonderful, makes me think of fresh air, 2nd, no film! Now, this is the very 1st use, but I had to write a review because I notice an improvement. I plan on using this little sample for a few days, and will review again, really hope I continue to love this moisturizer!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by annab from definitely not Hope, but Reliance... i just tried a sample yesterday and this is the first time i've written a review after a single use. i use Hope as my daytime moisturizer, followed by the Present (recently discontinued). well, i've dried my tears... RH delivers the same results in one product and then some. it's really a moisturizer and primer in one. it absorbs instantly and refines texture in a flash. No waiting, greasiness or stickiness at all. this leaves my skin crazy smooth, pores are invisible. i have combination skin and it looked and felt fabulous all day. i thought the herbaceous scent was pleasant and didn't linger at all. Can I trade in my new, jumbo jar of original Hope?

Rated 5 out of 5 by luvgrace from Desert Island Product This is one of my favorite skincare products. My skin is very sensitive to moisturizers as I am prone reactions whether it be a breakout from oily textures or ingredients, or a reaction to strong scents. Renewed Hope in a jar is perfect as the product has a light texture and applies easily without any residue. The product is lightly scented but is very pleasant, an improvement over the original Hope in a jar product. But best of all it works... my lines are less defined and my pore size is improved. I have been using this product for almost a year and can't go without it. Thanks PHILOSOPHY !

Rated 5 out of 5 by laspradlin from love it! I received a small tub of this in a combo pack with the Purity cleanser and was excited to give it a try. I have not used a philosophy moisturizer before and was worried it would be too heavy to wear under makeup, but I was so wrong. This moisturizer sinks into your skin really quickly and doesn't feel like anything after it dries. It also has a really great subtle smell that I love! I use it morning and night after cleansing with Purity and my skin has never looked better. I loved it so much I ordered the full size jar! I'm so excited to add this to my skincare routine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by cardigangirl from Pleasantly Surprised I'm a die-hard fan of the Original formula, and my sensitive skin has a bad track record when anything says "new and improved." I received a sample of the Renewed formula and decided to try it. I'm on day three, and no rash has appeared. It sinks right in and feels nice. It does have a different feel than the Original, slightly less initially quenching. However, my skin stayed moisturized through the day instead of turning dry as I feared it might. The fragrance is nice, lightly herbal. It disappears and is not overwhelming. I'm not going to abandon my Original, but I might switch this in every so often.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kayladrock from Pretty good I received a free sample of this in the mail, so I'm not sure about long-term use. The smell was really unpleasing to me. I don't like strong smells, and this one was terrible. It reminded me of very strong lavender with a hint of pine. It wore off shortly, so at least that. The consistency was excellent, and it didn't leave a greasy feeling at all. I think it would be great to put on before foundation. It definitely smoothed out some blemish scabs, and my skin feels very smooth. Overall I gave it a 4 because I thought it did an excellent job of moisturizing my skin. I think it would be perfection if it was fragrance free/unscented.
