What is it: An advanced skin care system designed to help brighten and refine the complexion.

Who is it for: Anyone starting to experience the first signs of aging, and anyone looking to try a complete skin care regimen.

Why is it different: This collection features philosophy's best-sellers and offers a daily routine and weekly peel.

purity made simple gently yet deeply cleanses and tones skin, removing dirt, oil, and makeup in one step.

the microdelivery exfoliating wash helps cleanse and replenish skin while providing resurfacing benefits.

when hope is not enough is a multitasking serum that helps to revitalize the appearance of skin while addressing signs of aging.

hope in a jar moisturizer delivers hydration to the skin, gently exfoliating and refining throughout the day.

hope in a tube helps treat areas around eyes and lips with ingredients that help hydrate and firm.

microdelivery brightening peel pads help deliver advanced skin-brightening benefits in one convenient step.

How do I use it: Every day, in the morning, begin by using microdelivery exfoliating wash on a damp face. Massage for 30 to 60 seconds, and rinse thoroughly. Next, place five to six drops of when hope is not enough in hands and apply to face and neck. Avoid eye area. Massage hope in a jar onto skin, avoiding the eye area. Then, apply a small amount of hope in a tube to the skin around the orbital bone and above the upper lip.

Repeat steps above in evening, using purity as your cleanser.

Once a week, gently swipe microdelivery peel pad over clean, dry face. If your skin is more sensitive, leave on for three to five minutes, then rinse. Avoid eye area.

Sunburn alert: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid that may increase skin's sensitivity to the sun and the possibility of sunburn. Use sunscreen and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week after.

From philosophy.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not impressed The only products that I liked from the kit was the miscrodeliver cleanser and the pads. Didn't care for the purity made simple. Don't like the smell of the serum and felt like it didn't do much. And the moisturizer made me breakout a little. 11-20-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by My skin looks amazing! I've used the Hope in a Jar in the past and liked it as well as the Purity wash. This package is a godsend. The micro-exfoliating wash is amazing and makes my skin so smooth. I was worried the peel wipes would flare up my sensitive skin so I waited until a Friday night to try one - and the wait wasn't even needed. No redness (and I didn't rinse it off) or dryness. I've been using this set for a little over a week now and I will never use anything else. My skin looks fresher and feels smoother already. 06-01-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simply Amazing AND A Great Value! I received this kit as a gift (it was on my wish list :)). I've been using philosophy products for a few years now and I decided to step up my game a bit and work on anti-aging as I am approaching 30. This kit does it all! Make up optional is the perfect name for it because my skin has never looked better when I follow this regimen. Also, at the price QVC offers it, you'd be crazy not to try it. If you purchase all of these items separately from philosophy directly, you will pay almost $100 more! I can't believe the value! 12-29-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by WONDERFUL Set Bought this 6 piece collection & very HAPPY with the results I have experienced with these products. My skin is healthy & radiant. LOVE the compliments. But best of all I LOVE the way my skin looks & feels. 07-17-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by WOW!!!! I ordered this because I'm 66 and my face was looking tired and grey. I've used the face cleanser before and just loved it. I was looking at other skin products and decided to use philosophy again since I used it before and loved it. Great price also. I have been using it for a few days now and my skin looks young and beautiful again. It really works and I'm very sensitive around the eye area and this doesn't bother me at all. My skin has never looked better. Not only looking better it feels wonderful. I will always use these products. Hope they keep this kit. Have not used the peel yet and I already see great results to my skin. I also ordered the set with the olive oil bath gel and body cream. LOVE LOVE LOVE! I use amazing grace shower gel after this olive oil scrub and then the body cream. My skin feels amazing. 04-22-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by 1,000 Stars!! I am a huuuuge skeptic that takes full advantage of QVC's 30-day return policy. I am more than willing to fork over big bucks for beauty products that work well, but am quick to return them if the products don't deliver as promised. I received this item 3 weeks ago and the box is still sitting on the dining room table because at $140, it really needed to pack a punch for me to keep it. Well this kit has blown my mind! Within the first week, I noticed my skin felt smoother and was not as red and blotchy that is my norm. By the second week, my pores were smaller. On the third week, my tone had been completely evened out and my skin actually looks bright and radiant. It truly makes wearing make-up an option. I'm hooked, philosophy has a supporter for life! Thank you for bringing my confidence back!! 01-04-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by FABULOUS! I don't often write reviews, but this one was absolutely necessary to share. I tried Philosophy skin care a while ago, I thought it was just ok. Recently I thought my skin was looking dull and I was breaking out, so I started to look for something new to try. I saw this kit presented on air a few weeks ago and thought that the peel pads seemed like they might be what I was looking for, and boy was I right! I've used them 3 times now (one per week) and what a difference in my skin! The other day my 13 year old son told me I looked more beautiful than normal, my face looked young! YAY! 05-20-13
