Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back Where I Belong I've been using both of these products for at least 20 years. But I experimented with a few other moisturizers, trying to save money. Total fail! It felt SO GOOD when I first put Hope in a Jar back on my face!!! I'll never stray again. I also will stick with the 2oz size, maybe go for a 4 oz, but I use so little that the big jars change texture before I get it used. Not a good thing. Purity is just the best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SUPERB products !! I don't know why it's taken me so long to try these two products, but now I have cannot go back to anything else. I am in my seventies and the Purity just makes my skin glow, and have no doubt the Hope in a Jar will prove to be just as good, even though I am blessed with few wrinkles. It may have taken a while to take the plunge, but can definitely see what I've been missing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased Purity does a great job cleansing my face and leaves my skin soft. I especially love Hope in a Jar. It moisturized my face without leaving it oily. A little goes a long way.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from What Happened To This? I'd give 5 stars to the Hope in A Jar moisturizer because its so creamy and soothing to my skin. I'm downgrading to 3 stars overall because the Purity Made Simple Cleanser does not remove eye makeup as advertised. I've use Purity in the past and I don't remember having to work so hard to get my eye makeup removed. The cleanser does not sting or burn my eyes which is great, but it's not much better at removing eye makeup than other cleansers. Has this formula been changed? It used to be better. I use coconut oil to dissolve my eye makeup and then cleanse with Purity. Not exactly the one-step cleanser it's advertised to be.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bumpy This was my first experience using this product. I purchased it after reading the reviews of how great it is. Well I haven't had that experience . My skin is breaking out. I've never had breakouts like this even during my teenage years.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Can't Stand the Smell Pros: I do like the clean feel of these products and they are easy to use. I have sensitive skin and they do not cause redness or itching. Con: However--I could not believe how awful both these products smell. Because I had used the philosophy shower products, I was anticipating an awesome scent. Not the case. The cleanser smells like a fire in a plastics factory, and the cream smells like a wet dog. I decided to use these products once a week just to use them up, but I don't know if I can do it. This morning I used them at 7AM. It is now 9AM and I can still smell my own face. I wouldn't want to go out in public having used these and have people wonder what is wrong with me that I smell so weird.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT!!! 33yrs old Black ethnicity Use twice daily Ok so this my first philosophy purchase and I have to say that I am overly pleased and excited about how my skin feels and looks. I have only had this duo for a little over two weeks and let me tell you I put them to the test. I was seriously sick for like 7-8 days. Which followed after a "great" night of drinking. So my skin should have been red and blotchy, dry, and dull looking. However my face looks so great no one would know I was sick until I opened my mouth. Even my boyfriend notice my skin. I have this nice glow about my face. Not oily looking or product greasy looking glow just a soft natural fresh faced glow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT for MEN or WOMEN... i'm fairly certain that this review will be read by more women than men, so i'd like to share a man's perspective on these two AMAZING products... I am an African-American man who is rapidly approaching 40, and I have used both these products for the past 15 years. NO OTHER SKINCARE PRODUCT has done for me what these two products have done. before I was introduced to purity made simple and hope in a jar by my wife (girlfriend at the time), my skin was blotchy, oily, and acne-prone, though I was in my early 20's. now, my skin is perfectly smooth and even, and i am certain that these products have helped (along with age, i'm sure...) to significantly reduce the oiliness and breakouts that used to drive me CRAZY. if only these products existed when I was a teenager... I even use purity made simple when I shave; it works SO MUCH better than any shaving cream or gel I have tried. it leaves my skin feeling smooth and soft, helps me get a closer shave, reduces razor burn and ingrown hairs (a BIG skincare issue for African-American men), and helps prevent nicks and cuts. it is so slippery smooth, the razor glides over it. and, in my opinion, there's NO better after-shave lotion or moisturizer than hope in a jar; it doesn't burn or dry my skin out like alcohol-based aftershaves or lotions tend to, prevents my face from becoming a post-shave oil slick, and has DRAMATICALLY helped to reduce the amount of ingrown hairs I experience. BEST OF ALL, unlike a lot of skincare products on the market, these two products have a NEUTRAL scent, so you won't walk away smelling like a fruit salad or a flower shop. if you're someone like me who is VERY sensitive to smells, you will definitely appreciate these products. so, ladies... though you may be considering these products for yourself, consider buying them for your husbands, boyfriends, or teenage sons... I PROMISE you that they will thank you after just one use.
