Philosophy Mini Haul

14.00 each

Hi Girlies, Hope you are all well! These are the things I ordered from Philosophy online when I was still in Kosovo and were waiting for me at my parents house when I got back to England. I had seen Philosophy's iconic bottles loads on Tumblr and thought that they were awesome but when I saw the price I had decided not to bother when there are plenty of alternatives available with similarly cute packaging. I did a bit more research into the brand and completely changed my mind. 

This is the Philosophy blurb:  

"philosophy is a brand that approaches personal care from a skin care point of view, while celebrating the beauty of the human spirit. we believe in miracles and the beauty in everyone."

They were also offering a free gift for purchases over 25.00 so I couldn't really stop myself. I went for Cinnamon Buns because I thought it would smell amazing (it does) and Melon Daiquiri. The unique thing about Philosophy is that they print actual recipes on the bottles according to the names. I have not had the chance to make the buns yet (I'm keen) but thats because I don't have an oven yet. 

Each bottle is 480ml which (hopefully) should last me quite some time. So far I have only used the Cinnamon Buns as a Bath gel. My whole bathroom smelled edible and my skin was left feeling very soft. These gels can actually be used as a shower gel, bath gel or shampoo which is nice and multi-purpose. It goes a bit towards making me feel like I am getting value for money too. As you can see above the free gifts came in a shiny little bag. 

Inside were a 12ml Hope in a jar and 30ml each of Amazing Grace and Purity. Hope In A Jar is a moisturiser which I have read rave reviews about so I am looking forward to using it. Amazing Grace, which I also got a 15ml sample sachet of, is a shampoo/ bath & shower gel like the full sized bottles I ordered. Purity is a facial cleanser. Philosophy also let you choose 2 free samples to be sent with your order. I chose The Microdelivery Exfoliating Facial Wash which I have heard is amazing but was 22.00 so I wanted to try it first! I did not realise that Amazing Grace would be part of my free gift, otherwise i would have chosen another free sample. 

Have you ever used a Philosophy product? What did you think?

  1. I adore Philosophy! Melon Daiquiri one in April and it only ran out in August and I used it everyday and used it as bubble bath too! So you do get your moneys worth :) It smells amazing which I love. I personally wouldn't use it as a shampoo I found it very heavy and my hair didn't feel clean. Smelt great though ha :)

    1. That's great! Thanks for the follow :) I really wanted to buy a pump for the bottles, like they have on the US philosophy site, but they're not available in the UK :( I'm looking forward to trying the daiquiri, I need to finish a few half empty shower gels first.
      Well have a look at your blog xo

  2. I cannot wait to get my mitts on some philosophy!

  3. If you sign up for their newsletter you often get codes to redeem for free gifts when you buy online, so it's worth doing! Xo
