Optimism: philosophy hope in a tinted moisturizer (review)

Hmmm…this week my blog is beginning to resemble one of those Word-A-Day calendars (I actually like those – and it's fun to cheat and look ahead).

I just happen to be feeling optimistic today. Some things appear a little rocky at the moment; but I’ve been walking around with a very strong sense that everything is going to turn out exactly the way it’s supposed to. And the journey will probably be pretty interesting.

So to spread around the sanguinity (yes, I just looked that word up); how about a little something from philosophy?

NEW hope in a tinted moisturizer (SPF 20)

Blurb: Now Hope in a Jar, the award-winning, lightweight daily moisturizer, can color your world beautiful with this tinted moisturizer. Its sheer, glowing color helps smooth and enhance the complexion. Broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sun protection and a blend of antioxidants protect your skin against wrinkles and environmental attack. Its unique souffle texture absorbs quickly, yet leaves behind long-wearing coverage with a weightless texture that all skin types will love.

Here’s another looks-good-and-good-for-you item from philosophy. This new tinted moisturizer is a little more lightweight than hope in a jar, and contains all of the excellent antioxidant and moisturizing benefits – along with the added bonus of an SPF.

I used the “light” shade; and got pretty, sheer coverage that evened out my skin tone really well. It gave me a bit of a glow, yet still looked natural. I also found it very long lasting – which is always a nice surprise in a tinted moisturizer. What really made me happy, though, was that after using this for about a week, my skin definitely felt softer. Awesome.

Now is a great time to check out the website. Through tomorrow (2/24), you can choose a free gift with any $75 purchase (enter promo code “trialkit” for the Makeup Optional Skin Trial Kit, or enter “hopetrial” for the When Hope Is Not Enough Trial Kit).
