Philosophy Hope in a Jar
Some time ago, I received a free sample of Hope in a Jar by Philosophy from Sephora. I love Philosophy's body and face washes, so I was excited to give this popular moisturizer a shot. Since their body washes and bubble baths come in an array of yummy scents, I was not remotely prepared for the odor that greeted me when I first opened the sample.
Burning... something. Plastic? Hair? Something.
Well, I won a giveaway a couple months ago and it included a whole container of Hope in a Jar. Because I'd heard from other people that they didn't experience a bad smell, I decided to try it out again. After removing my makeup and cleaning my face, I opened the jar and took a whiff... nice. Light, refreshing. Smells more like it! So, I slathered it on my face and crawled into bed.
Bad idea. Very, very bad idea.
A smell so noxious permeated my nostrils that I almost ran to the bathroom to wash my face again. Yep, Hope in a Jar smells awful again. Like a burning, mildewed shower curtain. Who wants to put that on their face?! I'll stick with the Babor Argan Cream from my Beauty Army kit, thank you very much.
