Rated 4 out of 5 by Alaskan Tabby Great Value
I bought this set so I could mix & match for Christmas gifts. I am a new fan of Purity so I gifted the one from this set to my mother who loves a good beauty product and I think she will enjoy this cleanser, as its an all-in-one makeup remover and toner/cleanser which she will appreciate. I am keeping the 8 oz Microdelivery Wash for myself for when I travel, I gifted the Sweet Cream polish to my sister -- mixed and matched with a 6 oz. Sweet Cream 3-in-1 from another set. I kept the Marshallow 3-in-1 for me as well as the Hope in a Jar which I THOUGHT I would try and hopefully like. Well... I don't. In fact, I hate it. As the previous review mentioned, it ABSOLUTELY smells like a wet dog was bottled up and made into a lotion. It doesn't necessarily smell like that inside the jar, but once you apply it and it warms into the skin, YUCK! It stinks sooo bad. It also didn't feel all that moisturizing. I left it on for all of about 5 minutes and then went to wash it off with my Purity and then washed immediately again with Microdelivery just to get the stench off my face. Even afterwards the smell lingered in my nose but luckily my husband said he could not smell it. So overall, great value but I don't know what to do with this face moisturizer because it's just awful.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Jools Amazing Set...with the exception of....
I'm new to Philosophy so I was happy to see a set with a variety of products as I've wanted to try several of these. I was VERY pleased with all of them...well, all but one of the products. I wasn't impressed with Hope in a Jar and only for the fact that it smelled so bad. I had read reviews on it prior to purchasing and that had been a common complaint, it DOES smell like wet dog. It smells medicinal at first but then changes to the wet dog smell and that smell, sadly, lingers. I wish the 3-in-1 body wash scent lingered like that because it smells great! I'd purchase all of the items again with the exception of Hope in a Jar, even if I found it to be an effective cream I cannot get past the smell, even my kids tell me I smell bad. On a side note, I find myself looking forward to every shower I take because I'm so excited to use the products! Amazing Grace Souffle has a nice light smell, it's not creamy like some lotions, sort of dissipates quickly as you put it on, but it's not greasy in the least. Overall my skin feels amazing!
