Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stuff if you're able to let go of the past. I used the old formulation of HIAJ dry and loved it, and although I get that people miss it, I like this formula even better. After two months of use, I swear that I look at least five years younger--seriously, I'm getting compliments on my skin, and that hasn't happened in a looong time. I wish that people who simply want to complain about the change in formulation would quit dragging the overall rating down, because this is a great moisturizer. I am in my late 40s and have combination dry, acne-prone skin, and this stuff addresses both of my concerns like nobody's business--my dry patches are gone, and my T-zone is perfectly matte. Not a pimple in sight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go-to moisturizer! I am constantly experimenting with moisturizers from the competitors because I like to always try new products but I keep going back to Renewed Hope for Dry skin. I give away the competitors' products to my friends who don't have ultra sensitive, combination skin like me. This moisturizer has a perfect consistency - not too thick and not too runny. It goes on well and doesn't flake like so many other competitors' products, yes, other companies' products actually flake off my skin after drying!!??!! It doesn't sting at all and it doesn't make my face oily. Yes, other companies' products actually sting my skin, but not Renewed Hope for Dry skin. I'll be extremely sad if they ever discontinue this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works for me! This is the perfect summer moisturizer for me. First, I did not care for the scent of the original HIAJ. I was so happy when Renewed HIAJ came out because the scent didn't bother me. I used RHIAJ last summer, and Miracle Worker in winter. I find Miracle Worker too oily for the summer heat and humidity. Now as I age, I find my skin needs more moisture than RHIAJ, so I tried RHIAJ for Dry Skin. Bingo! Just the right level of moisture without being too oily. I have sensitive skin, and I have not had any problems with RHIAJ for Dry Skin. I'm sorry if others do, but please don't discontinue it. I love it!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from My skin...not renewed I ran out of hope in a jar for dry skin- so i tried this product. I do have to say that my skin was radiant, smooth, blemish-free and overall looked great. however, i have incredibly dry skin so i had to supplement with another moisturizer. this didn't replenish my skin or give it that slick oiliness that i needed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's okay, but not good for dry or sensitive skin After philosophy discontinued my go-to moisturizer HIAJ for dry skin, I was hopeful this would be as good or better to replace it. Unfortunately, this is not nearly as good as the original. It burns when I put it on, and my skin has dry patches that I never had with the original. This is probably fine for people with normal or oily skin but it is not sufficient for those with dry skin. I will be looking for a new moisturizer after this. I may even try a different brand I am sad to say, because I have always been a fan of philosophy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from leaves a residue. I love Philosophy but this moisturizer leaves a residue on your face so when you put foundation on it curdles. I have tried every thing to solve the problem but still leaves this residue on face. I have rinsed my faced repeatedly but still doesn't help.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Renewed hope is not for me I've used HIJ for dry skin for years in the warmer months. It was perfect for my skin type. I tried the new Renewed HIJ for dry skin because it was the new substitute and was very disappointed. My face was dry and splotchy after the first day. After 2 days, I developed a rash on my entire neck and face. I've never had such a reaction to anything that I've tried on my face!! Now that it's cleared up, I've gone back to my winter standby, Miracle Worker, while I search around for a new summer moisturizer. Please bring back HIJ for dry skin!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So Disappointed I have read all of the reviews and totally agree with the frustration as stated in other reviews. I absolutely loved original HIAJ Dry skin. It was the only moisturizer that made my skin feel like velvet and so quenched. I also stocked up as soon as I found out that it was discontinued, but alas-I am out. Me and my skin are struggling :( I have spent a ridiculous amount of money on replacement products and have returned them all. I tried the new formula and agree that when I applied enough to feel moisturized, it "pilled" up. I am now using a drug store moisturizer and my skin is paying the price. People used to guess my age at 10-15 years younger and now they believe my age from my dull dry red skin. PLEASE bring back the original HIAJ dry skin formula! I'm so sad :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Is there any hope?!?!?!? I am so disappointed in the new formulation. I found it irritating and despite exfoliation, it made my make-up "pill". I had stockpiled the original formula, but alas...I'm down to my last jar. Like other reviewers, is there any possible way the original can make a comeback? I used to use the entire line for my skin care (body AND face) regime, but I'm so disheartened by this, I'm truly considering throwing the baby out with the bathwater! PLEASE bring the original hope in a jar dry back!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Was hopeful, but nope... I have been using Hope in a Jar for Dry Skin for well over a decade (the Regular HIAJ is drying for my skin, unfortunately) and I tried this "replacement" a number of times under varying conditions (immediately after washing my face, following Miracle Worker, etc) and it invariably dries my skin, makes it feel very tight and uncomfortable, and, ultimately, pills up. I am so disappointed and frustrated because Hope in a Jar for Dry Skin in the ONLY moisturizer that has ever worked for me (I have tried so many it's ridiculous) and I am, honestly, stressing about what I am going to do when I run out. PLEASE, I beg of you, bring back the original Hope in a Jar for Dry Skin.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I am so disappointed with this new product. It's nothing like the original product I've used for almost a decade. I have super sensitive skin. Hope in a jar for dry skin was perfect. I have received numerous compliments on my skin. People would guess my age at 10-15 years younger than I was. I have always credited this amazing moisturizer that soothed my skin from day one. PLEASE bring back the original!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Zero Stars If I could give this product zero stars I would. I purchased this after the original Hope in a Jar for Dry Skin was discontinued. It makes my skin tight, drier than before, my makeup peels off, and the smell of it makes it unusable. I have two bottles of this that I cannot use. I have been using Philosophy for 10+ years and now am left without a moisturizer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful - Not the Same as the Previous Formula I wish I read these reviews before I bought this. I too used the old version for several years and loved it. The new version is just not the same. it's over perfumed and left my skin burning, red and dry. I returned it and found something similar to the old product that was better.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed with the new version I have been using hope in a jar for dry & sensitive skin for 8 years and i have been very happy with it. My skin is very sensitive and dry, this is the only product that has worked for me. I tried the new version and I'm sorry to say that it leaves my skin feeling dry and I end up with breakouts. Now I have to find something else. PLAESE BRING BACK THE OLD VERSION.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from If it works DON'T fix it! If it were possible to not give a star I would is one too many! I went to purchase my ever faithful Hope in a Jar for Dry Skin and discovered it has been discontinued and the illusion of an improved version has replaced it. This 'renewed' version is horrible! My skin is drier and feels awful, the scent is really bad. After YEARS of using the Hope in a Jar for Dry Skin I now have to find a new moisturizer. PLEASE bring back the original formula of Hope in a Jar for Dry Skin!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from bring back the old! I am a longtime devotee to Hope in a Jar for dry sensitive skin. I live in harsh climate and have very sensitive skin; it saves my face every winter. This new formula makes my skin burn and leaves it feeling dry. Please bring back the old version! Please!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed Have used Hope in a Jar for Dry Skin for several years and loved it. This replacement is very disappointing. Makes my skin dry. Now the search is on for a new moisturizer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible product I was a devotee of Hope in a Jar for Dry Skin - it was a godsend! This renewed formula is terrible - dried out my skin even further. I returned it to the store. Please bring back the old formula for those of us with dry skin issues!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worse Cream Ever I too had to find a substitute face cream when the mfg discontinued the one I had been using for years. Hope in Jar was recommended so I paid $52 Canadian for a cream that should be named Destitute in Jar. I did not know when purchasing it that Philosophy had discontinued it as is still available and it does not work as indicated plus the packaging is defective, as the plastic container has cracked in several places. No wonder they have discontinued it, they only left me with a bad taste and a hunt for new moisturizer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bring back the old Hope in a Jar for DRY SKIN! UGH!! I tried this new dry formula since Hope in a Jar for dry skin was discontinued and I am terribly disappointed. This formula is very harsh on my skin, it actually burns and does not moisturize nearly as well. I cannot use it. I used the original dry formula for years and was so thrilled when I found it. Now I am on a search for a new formula, this is definitely not it. Bring it back Philosophy, I beg you!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed...where to turn next? I've used Hope in a Jar Dry Skin for several years and was "okay" with it. It's where I landed after a long search of a replacement after Lancôme discontinued Hydra Zen for dry skin. Now, Philosophy has changed the formulation and while the fragrance is better the moisturizer is just weird. I cannot wear it under other things...i.e. sunscreen #which is recommends you wear because it contains AHA#, CC cream. When I apply anything over it, it just peels off. My face seems marginally dryer than before even though my routines have remained the same. I, unfortunately, do not recommend this product...and now again, am stuck trying to find something that will work for my skin.
