I live in S Florida, I'm African American dark skin tone, combination skin. Absolutely love this as a skin protector and good base for my make up. I use this after I was my face with Philosophy using the Clarisonic tool. 2 Months now Love the results.
Pros: lightweight, absorbs quickly, doesn't run into eyes, excellent sun protection
Ease of Use
-August 18, 2011
I've used Philosophy for 12 years and finally a moisturizer with spf that doesn't run into my eyes while exercising. It's lightweight, doesn't smell like sunscreen, and wears great on its own or under foundation. A home run for me!
For some reason, philosophy has decided to discontinue hope in a bottle :( So, in an effort to replace my lost moisturizer...the only one that has EVER worked, I tried hope oil free. Not even close. I really don't know what I am going to do without hope in a bottle.
I started using this moisturizer after the regular Hope with SPF made me break out. I did like this one, but I think it smells quite a bit like regular sunscreen. The texture is a bit heavy too. Not my favorite Philosophy product.
