Amazon has kicked off its Pre-Prime Day deals, offering shoppers early access to a variety of discounts. 

Among the standout offers is a 30% markdown on the Philosophy Hope in a Jar Smooth-Glow Multi-Tasking Moisturizer. It is now available for $34, down from its regular price of $49.

This moisturizer has a notable endorsement from media mogul Oprah Winfrey, who is a longtime fan. She named the original version of this product her "Ultimate Favorite Thing" in 2010 and has reportedly been using it for over a decade, according to Page Six.

Winfrey has also praised the moisturizer as the best one she's ever used.

The product was reformulated in 2022. The updated formula features hydrating hyaluronic acid, which is known for its ability to retain moisture in the skin, and resurfacing glycolic acid, which helps gently exfoliate and renew the skin's surface. These ingredients work together to deliver deep hydration and smoother, more radiant skin.

In addition to being a staple in Winfrey's skincare routine, the Philosophy Hope in a Jar moisturizer has been featured in various gift guides and skincare articles on her website. 

Winfrey once described the moisturizer as giving her face "a drink of water," highlighting its hydrating and exfoliating properties. During her talk show's farewell season, her face even appeared on limited-edition Philosophy boxes.

The Philosophy Hope in a Jar Smooth-Glow Multi-Tasking Moisturizer is designed to tackle multiple skin concerns simultaneously. It promises to hydrate, exfoliate, and improve the skin's natural radiance. 

The product's formulation includes an exclusive radiance complex with pro-vitamin P and upcycled tangerine peel extract, which are designed to enhance the skin's glow and provide a healthy, dewy finish.

The clinical results of the moisturizer speak for themselves. A two-week clinical study involving 42 women aged 25 to 55 who used the product twice daily showed immediate improvement in skin texture, fine lines, and wrinkles. 

Additionally, another clinical study with 35 women aged 18 to 65 demonstrated that the moisturizer delivers instant and long-lasting hydration for up to 24 hours.

For best results, the product should be applied to clean, dry skin both in the morning and at night. Users are advised to apply it all over the face and to avoid the immediate eye area. 

The fresh and creamy texture of the moisturizer allows it to melt into the skin, providing comfort and long-lasting hydration.

Amazon Prime Day 2024 is set to take place in a few weeks, but these early deals provide an opportunity for shoppers to get a head start on their purchases. With a range of products already on sale, there's no need to wait for the official Prime Day event to find great bargains.
