Christmas with Philosophy

With the Christmas songs in full swing and the decorations up, I figured it was the perfect time to share some of the gorgeous products from the Philosophy Christmas collection.

I’ve wrote two other gifts guides, one for the beauty lovers and a general one with general gifts for her under £30. With many gift sets containing products that don’t suit all, I’m really impressed to see that Philosophy have got it just right and produced some sets that are sure to make any receiver happy – you would have to be slightly mad not to love these…

Sparking Hollyberries Gift Set – £24*

I’ll start with my personal favourite… Firstly I have to mention the scent, Sparking Hollyberries is definitely my favourite out of the ones I’ve tried, it is sweet without being too sickly and still has a Christmassy feel about it. The first thing I spotted in this set is that one of the products can be used as a shampoo, bubble bath and shower gel! Now that’s pretty impressive. I have been using this mainly as a bubble bath, I was so happy to see that such a little went a long way and the gorgeous sweet scent lingered afterwards too.

In the winter months a luxurious moisturiser definitely doesn’t go a miss. For me it has to be hydrating and feel luxurious without taking too long to sink in, the Hollyberries moisturiser not only smells flippin amazing, but it sinks in within a matter of minutes, leaving my skin feeling soft without having to wait around too long in the cold – winning.

Philosophy Christmas Crackers* 

Finally, a cracker with something that won’t let you down inside. The Philosophy Crackers contain mini’s of some of their best selling products. These are fab as the minis offer more than the usual sample sizes so you can actually give them a good try. I personally love gifts like this, I’ve found so many of my favourite products through trial sizes and then gone on to purchase the bigger. You can actually create these crackers yourself in selected boots stores and pick all of the bits you want to include, like pick ‘n’ mix but for skincare!
Amazing Grace Fragrance – £33*

Scent is usually hard to buy for a lot of people, but I can see this best selling fragrance being perfect for so many women. Not only is the bottle beautiful but the scent is light, fresh and elegant. Buying scents can be risky over the Christmas period but I think this will be a winner for a lot of people, I’m usually a lover of floral scents but this is just perfect for every day.

Snow Angel – £14.50*

I have been using the Snow Angel shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath as a shower gel. I love how moisturising and luxurious this feels, I find so many shower gels to leave my skin feeling stripped but this does the opposite, combined with a moisturiser my skin isn’t feeling the winter chill just yet. This is actually a 480ml bottle so it’s a really generous amount – perfect for anyone you know that loves a good pamper! 

If you are thinking about picking up some luxurious bath/ body gift sets this year then I cannot recommend Philosophy enough. The beautiful packaging, festive scents and luxurious products themselves are set to get you in the Christmas spirit.
