First, just look at the title: hope in a jar
What a wonderful name and philosophy: "where there is hope there can be truth, where there is faith miracles can occur."
We admire the honesty this giant skin care, makeup, and fragrance company is all about.

And as the philosophy website says:
Originally created for the medical market to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, skin discoloration, rough texture and dehydration. hope in a jar dramatically improves skin radiance and gently exfoliates, revealing smoother, healthier looking skin and texture.
We thought we'd open up hope in a jar, and look inside.
The price is reasonable---1 ounce= $28. 2 ounces= $38. 4 ounces= $60. 8 ounces=$105.
The product features 2 important reasons for 'hope' in a complexion:
