When Hope Is Not Enough

Philosophy - When Hope Is Not Enough Replenishing Cream

I hope your Easter weekend was special and filled with wonderful memories. Even though my sisters and I are all older, my mom still filled the house with Easter treats. I spent the weekend at home with the family, and I met the sweetest bride and did her hair and makeup for her bridal photo shoot and I can't wait to share them with you after her wedding. I actually got out of my sweat pants and dressed up for a few hours (that almost never happens on the weekends anymore), and spent a great deal of time at Starbucks talking for hours with dear friends. I also tried out some new products, one being Philosophy's When Hope Is Not Enough moisturizer.

Earlier in the week, I went into Macy's for a couple of makeup items and was introduced to Philosophy's skin care line. They have stuff for every skin type imaginable, but because I have dry skin I was particularly interested in what would help my skin type. A friend who also has dry skin was looking to try some products that would help her skin, so I picked up their When Hope Is Not Enough moisturizer for each of us. When Hope is Not Enough is basically a more intensified version of their Hope in a Jar Moisturizer, specifically formulated to help dry to very dry skin.

Both of us are completely in love with this moisturizer and will probably use it for the rest of our lives if we can afford it! My friend texted me the next morning and was amazed at the difference she was seeing and feeling already in her skin. I put some of the Hope in a Jar moisturizer on one hand and When Hope Is Not Enough on the other hand, and you can definitely feel the difference between the two products. I have to be honest, this skin care line is expensive and this moisturizer runs $50 a jar. But a little goes a long way with this stuff and I feel like it would last a while and I am seeing the results that I just haven't experienced with other moisturizers, so for me it is worth it. This moisturizer hydrates, smooths, and refreshes, without being greasy and the texture is great! I do wish it was not so flowery in scent, because spring allergies are bothersome right now for me and the scent just adds to that. But I am sure when allergy season is over the scent won't be as noticeable.

If you don't have dry skin, but want to try out some of the philosophy products more suited to your skin type, you can find them at Macy's or Sephora. Both places will let you try the products in store and will even send you home with a little sample if you want to experience it a little longer before committing.

xoxo and extra hugs to Jacki for trying this out with me,
