Can it really be EIGHTEEN YEARS since Philosophy launched their iconic moisturiser, Hope In a Jar? YES! I reckon it arrived a few years later than 1996 in the UK, but I can remember trying it as a rookie beauty writer, about 15 years ago!
As it comes of age, Hope In a Jar has been renewed – Renewed Hope In a Jar is now an all-day-skin-renewing moisturiser, with a brand new texture, and scent too.
The new formula grants three of the most demanding skincare wishes in three key actions on the skin:
* Refining texture with visible pores and fine lines lifted away
* Instant and long-lasting hydrating for all day smoothness
* Re-energizing healthy colour and glow for a refreshed and radiant complexion.
It uses a mixture of peptides and natural ingredients to achieve these aims. It does feel lovely, and it smells great.
There is also an eye cream, to use with the moisturiser.
Renewed Hope In a Jar Eye is a whipped illuminating cream which energises tired eyes with asian fruit extract, brightens dark circles and reduces puffiness with algae extracts and addresses fine lines with a yeast extract.
It’s light to apply, but it feels really rich, which I like in an eye cream.
Philosophy are a lovely brand, known for their lovely little mottos of hope and inspiration on all their products.
Renewed Hope In a Jar Moisturizer, £35.50, and Renewed Hope In a Jar Eye Cream, £29.50, are available now at philosophyskincare.co.uk, Debenhams, John Lewis and Boots stores nationwide.
