Good morning 🙂
I’m slowly getting through some of the amazing gift sets I received at Christmas 🙂
One of the brands I love to receive are Philosophy gift sets as they are so versatile, fun and they always cheer me up with their gorgeous scents and packaging 🙂
Most of Philosophy’s ‘foodie’ sets have their scent recipes on the front of each product, which I love! Such a great idea!
The ‘cookie exchange’ is a beautiful scrummy tin containing 3 equally scrummy products.
‘Sweet creamy frosting’ body lotion
First up we have the delicious smelling body lotion ‘sweet creamy frosting’. If you hate the smell of a sweet vanilla cake frosting then you’re probably not going to love this 😉
The lotion which is more like a body butter has that richness of old fashioned cake frosting, buttery, sugary, thick……delicious!
I applied this after a shower and the formula does sink in within a few minutes and leaves a lovely sheen to my skin.
Contains ingredients such as Macadamia oil and Shea butter.
‘Christmas cookie’ 3in1
‘Christmas’ is a 3in1 shower gel/bubble bath/shampoo.
I’m not going to lie, this smells very similar to ‘sweet creamy frosting’ except it has more of that ‘home baking’ smell (it’s always so hard explaining scents in writing isn’t it?).
It has a good lather especially when used with one of those shower scrunchies and cleans the skin without it leaving you parched and dry..I’m not keen on it as a shampoo as it leaves my hair a little static and ‘flyaway’ but that’s just me 🙂
‘Sugar sprinkles’ – Lip gloss
The lip gloss is a nice added extra to the set, it has a really odd but nice smell to it, kind of like if you mixed pineapple with vanilla.
The gloss has a high shine pink formula with tiny red specs of glitter, I admit I’m not overly fond of this lip gloss as I find it abit ‘sticky’ but then I’m not a lip gloss kinda gal 😉
Have you ever tried Philosophy?
