Beauty products are like books. In that you shouldn’t judge them by their cover. Or jar as the case may be. However, it’s hard not to feel inspired and uplifted by the phrase that adorns philosophy’s new renewed hope in a jar collection. “Live with optimism. Renew with hope.” Words to aspire to in terms of life and skincare we say!
Luckily, the renewed hope in a jar formula is worthy of the inspirational words on the jars. Released this month, the renewed hope in a jar collection is a 2015 reformulation of the famous hope in a jar, which has been a bestseller for philosophy ever since the brand launched in 1996.
Reflecting the latest scientific advances in skincare, renewed hope in a jar consists of a moisturiser, eye cream and cleanser. It promises to deliver all day hydration, refine skin texture and a healthy glow. In other words, the collection addresses all the main issues that can get in the way of healthy and radiant skin.
Lightweight yet nourishing, the moisturiser replenishes deep into the layers of the skin and uses a mix of alpha-hydroxy acids to exfoliate and help minimise pores. It also contains Asian fruit extracts to boost micro-circulation and give that healthy glow we all want.
With a whipped texture, this eye cream is all about hydration and illumination. Algae extracts help banish dark circles and reduce puffiness while a clever yeast complex helps smooth fine lines.
There aren’t many foaming cleansers that are gentle and hydrating. But this luxe creamy cleanser promises to both moisturise and purify at the same time.
Over the next few weeks members of Team Sporteluxe will be putting the renewed hope in a jar collection through its paces and seeing how the products respond to our different skin types. So stay turned to read the results of our renewed hope in a jar road test!
