frequently asked questions

q: who can use hope in a jar night?
it can be used on all skin types, except those with a known sensitivity to alpha hydroxy acid (aha).

q: how is it used?
use it after cleansing and applying treatment in the evening. if irritation occurs, reduce application to every other night.

q: why should i use a nighttime moisturizer?
a nighttime moisturizer is beneficial because skin may experience a loss of moisture at night, which calls for more hydration. in addition, the absence of external aggressors, such as sun, pollution, and other environmental factors, allows for the usage of more intense skin treatments.

q: can i use hope in a jar night with my nighttime retinoid treatment?
if you'd like to use hope in a jar night with a retinoid product, you may need to either apply it every other night or alternate between hope in a jar night and your retinoid product each night to avoid irritation. use your best discretion. when using any product containing an alpha hydroxy acid or a retinoid, please be sure to use sunscreen every morning.

q: how is hope in a jar night different from philosophy's original hope in a jar?
hope in a jar, with lactic-acid derivative as its key ingredient, acts on the skin's surface to gently help refine skin texture and smooth the appearance of superficial fine lines. hope in a jar night delivers ingredients during the skin's key period of nighttime rejuvenation to help reduce the appearance of fine lines, even skin tone, and improve texture. hope in a jar night contains glycolic acid in a qusome delivery system. in addition, both formulas contain beta-glucan to give the appearance of a healthy-looking glow. finally, the scents are different. hope in a jar has a signature scent of essential lavender oil, while hope in a jar night contains a combination of lavender oil and chamomile.

q: what is qusome technology?
qusomes are similar to microscopic capsules that deliver glycolic acid to the skin.

hope vs. miracle worker
mari lyn

philosophy's mari lyn answers your frequently asked questions about hope and miracle worker.

q: what's the difference between the hope and miracle worker lines?

a: our hope products are treatment-based moisturizers and provide the foundation for healthy skin. not only do they provide excellent moisturization, they also address some of the most common skin concerns such as fine lines, uneven skin tone, and rough texture. rich in antioxidants and other active ingredients, they're aimed at helping to prevent and reduce the first signs of aging. miracle worker addresses multiple aggressive signs of aging: lines that are more noticeable and turning into wrinkles, dullness that's more evident, and skin that's increasingly challenging to hydrate.

q: how do i know when it's time to start using miracle worker?

a: if you are concerned about the signs of aging, it's time. if you have advanced anti-aging needs, it's definitely time. again, you'll know if lines are more noticeable and turning into wrinkles, dullness is more evident, discoloration and loss of elasticity are concerns, and retaining moisture is increasingly challenging.

q: can i use both hope and miracle worker products?

a: sure you can. some customers want something a little more lightweight during the day and like to use hope in a jar or when hope is not enough facial firming serum under makeup. then, at night, incorporate the miracle worker concentrate and moisturizer (with the retinoid pads, of course).

q: which miracle worker product should i start using first?

a: if you had to choose only one product from the miracle worker collection, start with the retinoid pads. clinical studies show that noticeable results can be seen within one week of use. then, incorporate the moisturizer, followed by the concentrate and antioxidant pads.

q: what's your skin care routine?

a: below is what i'm currently using, and i love the results! my skin continues to improve beyond expectations.


  • the microdelivery exfoliating wash — it gently but deeply cleanses as it exfoliates
  • miracle worker miraculous anti-aging antioxidant pads
  • miracle worker miraculous anti-aging retinoid eye cream
  • miracle worker miraculous anti-aging concentrate
  • miracle worker spf 55 miraculous anti-aging fluid


  • purity made simple one-step facial cleanser, with my Clarisonic!
  • miracle worker miraculous anti-aging retinoid pads
  • miracle worker miraculous anti-aging retinoid eye cream
  • miracle worker miraculous anti-aging moisturizer


  • the microdelivery peel at least once a week — i love how it makes my skin immediately feel incredibly soft with a healthy-looking glow
  • hope springs eternal deep sea revitalizing mask — once a week or every other week

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 134 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Yellowish This is my second Hope in a jar at night. I don't mind the smell at all. What bothers me is the color of the cream is yellowish? My first one which is 8oz used it for 6months and the color didn't change, it stays white. I don't know if I'm gonna use this new one or just return it back. Kinda scary! 03-07-16
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not for Me! I love philosophy products.....but not this one. I bought in a bundle with eye cream and Purity made made simple. Forget the smell. I could live with that. It didn't work. My skin was dry after using and product "rolled" off my face. I gave to my 70 year old mother. Doing same thing on her face but she likes product. She thinks maybe it is getting dead skin off??? 09-18-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this cream. Makes my skin feel amazing almost immediately after applying. I do not notice any off-putting odor, at all, in my product. I ordered the super sized set including purity, which is hands down the most fantastic skin care product EVER created. This was an "extra" as far as I was concerned, but glad I tried it. It will become a regular. 06-18-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simply Amazing! This product should be customer top rated hands down. The glycolic acid I believe is the magic ingredient. I'm a product junkie & have tried a little bit of everything. I was experiencing a mild breakout after running out. I replenished with the super size TSV & my skin cleared practically overnight. The glow & texture of my skin is unlike anything thing I've experienced. Thank you QVC & Philosophy for offering deals that the brick & mortar stores could never compete with. Please just give it a try....love it or send it back. I suggest you keep it & be transformed. 03-03-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by There is no smell added !!!!! To the people complaining about the "smell"-the so called odor some of you are smelling is because they DON'T ADD A SMELL OR PERFUMES to it. So you are smelling the ingredients.If you want perfume in your face crème they have plenty out there.I love this crème and most all Philosophy products due to the fact there are no UNNECESSARY ingredients.I love results and this gives it to you. Add perfume it will change it ! THEN I Won't USE IT and probably most of you getting good results will find them gone. Don't mess with a good thing !!!!!!!!!!!!! 02-21-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by Creamy Feels very nice without feeling greasy. Might reorder. 01-02-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Absolutely NO smell I purchased this item from QVC last year and absolutely LOVE it! I am extremely sensitive to fragrances and cannot use most perfumes due to the headaches they cause. On the contrary, this item has absolutely no smell at all! If Philosophy wants to look into this issue, they might want to see which lot all of these customers who are complaining got. Maybe it's just the 2-oz jars. My Hope in a Jar Night was awesome, and stayed that way for the entire 10 months it lasted - no smell. I was sincerely surprised at the amazing results it provided. I was hoping for some improvement in my skin tone, but got miraculous results - smooth, clear skin. Ordering again!!! 12-19-14
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not the usual Philosophy experience I really love Philosophy and have tried so many products. This one didn't deliver anything special and I didn't even finish the jar (which is rare for me with this line). I suggest Miracle Worker as a great moisturizer for drier skin. 09-08-14
