Quite a while back I decided to pick up Philosophy’s Hope in a Tinted Moisturizer from Hautelook when there was a Philosophy sale on the site.


The Website Claims:
Now Hope in a Jar, the award-winning, lightweight daily moisturizer, can color your world beautiful with this tinted moisturizer. Its sheer, glowing color helps smooth and enhance the complexion. Broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sun protection and a blend of antioxidants protect your skin against wrinkles and environmental attack. Its unique souffle texture absorbs quickly, yet leaves behind long-wearing coverage with a weightless texture that all skin types will love.

Price:
$38 for 1.7 oz from Sephora, however I snagged mine for $24.50 from Hautelook.

Does it live up to its claims?
Yes! I’m actually in love with it! In fact, it prompted me to give Philosophy’s Purity a second try. To start, it’s a good, lightweight moisturizer on my skin. Since it’s tinted, it basically evens me out. I have the Extra Light shade, and I was worried it would be too yellow. However, the yellow actually counters my pink overtones, and I think it really helps to even me out. I do like that it’s a broad spectrum SPF product to protect against UVA/UVB rays, but the SPF 20 is not enough for my taste for daily use. I really don’t feel comfortable with less than SPF 40 these days. I do really like the fact that it has antioxidants in it, so it’s sort of a multi-tasking product and good for your skin.

Additionally, I really like the container that this comes in! It’s got an airless pump, which makes it really easy to dispense the product into your hands and apply it to your face. I applied this to my face, eyes and neck. I didn’t have any adverse reactions to it.

Would I purchase again?
Probably. The only thing really holding me back is that the SPF is so low. Living in Florida and dealing with a strong sun all year round has really made me realize that having an SPF of 40 or greater is very important to me. I really do like how it feels on my skin. I like that it evens me out and isn’t cakey. I like that it works really well as a moisturizer.
