Philosophy - Hope in a Jar

So, here is a quick review of a sample I got from an online purchase at Sephora. I got to choose a "deluxe sample" and I chose Philosophy - Hope in a Jar. It's just a facial moisturizer. I already pretty much knew it wasn't going to work for me since I have acne and very oily skin. Moisturizer is usually a bad idea for me. If I ever get a dry patch, I just use Vaseline on it until it goes away.

Anyway, I thought I'd test it out anyway and I was very surprised by... the... smell. It was horrible, it smelled like a brand new pool toy. Wtf is in that stuff? I don't know what is in it, but it seriously has a strong plastic smell. I wish I had smelled it before I put it on because all I could smell was my face, blaaghhh. Anyway, I woke up to very oily skin. I will not try this again, but I would have never tried it in the first place if it wasn't free. So, no real loss here.

I would have taken a picture of the face I made when I smelled it, but that is far too much effort for a lazy person like me, so I did what any self-respecting lazy internet person would do. I made an Lolcat. Enjoy!
