Philosophy Christmas 2010 Gifts

Posted by Lipglossiping On November - 24 - 2010

Philosophy have some rather adorable Christmas gift sets out this year though I’ll confess they’re not a brand that I can claim to be hugely familiar with.

Occasionally I’ll go on a TK Maxx Philosophy spree and I’ve been pleased with the things I’ve picked up.  In particular, their Purity facial cleanser which I’ve currently got stashed away in my overnight bag.

Anyway, enough of my ramblings… here’s what they’ve got on the shelves for Christmas 2010.

    Love purity – not tried anything else though – they are ultra cute.

  2. Amanda says:

    love the way they name their products they almost sound good enough to eat!! such a good way to attract more customers :) xoxo

  3. Catriona says:

    Philosophy’s Amazing Grace fragrance is probably my favourite smell ever. Pity the EDP version is so expensive and not readily available. Most places only stock the EDT.

    I got pretty much everything in a basket as a flat warming gift this year (along with some of the normal line) No one is allowed to use them or open them of course as they little boxes are all assembled on the windowsills looking pretty! You can smell some of them through the packaging.. the warm and toasty set in particular <3 YUM!

    The only thing i opened was the lipgloss set and was devestated to find the light pink sugar cookie scented one is lemony. Its truly awful tasting but the others are great!

  5. Tali says:

    sorry *frosted cookie

    I love their Purity Made Simple cleanser! I use it every day. I actually forgot it this last time I came to London and am just waiting to get back to Chicago to pick it up, since I have definitely noticed a difference in my skin.

    As far as their other products, I have used their lipgloss, although it’s not one of my favorites. I love the scents, though! And they have a bath, shampoo, and shower gel product that I really like. However, that is with a caveat. I do not recommend using it as a shampoo. I tried that while on vacation, since I didn’t want to have to pack a whole lot, and it just didn’t work with my hair. It looked like I hadn’t washed it at all and was just weighed down and oily. Gross! But I loved the product as a shower gel, and would continue to buy it for that purpose.

  7. I picked up hope in a jar, when hope is not enough serum, a perfect base and gingerbead showergel at TK Maxx!

  8. Emily says:

    Oh my goodness, I want all of them!

  9. Caz says:

    I’d have all of them if I could!
    The gingerbread ones are definitely on my wishlist :)

  10. konni says:

    I do love Philosophy’s Christmassy (or should that be holiday?) scents. Probably can’t justify though as I still have six half-full minis left over from last year!

  11. tiptoe shortbread says:

    Hankering after the warm and toasty set in a big way, submitted my santa claus list today so fingers crossed……

  12. Joy says:

    I was tempted by Amazing Grace last time I was in TK Maxx. However, I don’t have a sense of smell (weird I know) so I actually have no clue what it smells like, I just judge things by their packaging and whether my hubby grunts “yeah it’s alright” or “urgh no”! And there are some much cheaper versions in Tescos and Boots with rip off Philosophy packaging that would be much kinder on my bank balance!

    My sister’s name is Grace so it would make quite a nice gift for her, I guess. I’m still in two minds as to whether it’s worth the money…

  13. i love philosophy’s Christmas products! the packaging is always so cute and of course, the body products smell absolutely delicious.

  14. Katrina says:

    I was sniffing the ones in John Lewis last night and they smell amazing. I so want the lip gloss set and the cookie shower gels. Yummy!

  15. gözde says:

    vauuuvvvv theese are very very nice!!!! :)) ı wish if this company be in turkey :(( (again sorry to my english is bad) GÖZDE

  16. Fatty Bumble says:

    I luff Philosophy! Amazing Grace and Baby Grace are my particular favourites but I’m a sucker for anything Philosophy!
    I love reading the ‘philosophies’ on the bottles when I’m in the shower.
    Their lipglosses are really good too, not too sticky and not too runny, just right! My current handbag must have is The Supernatural, their foundation which has the best applicator ever!
    There is going to be a Philsophy TSV on QVC on Sunday by the way :)

  17. Fatty Bumble says:

    And the 3 in 1 shower gels, bath foams and shampoos are actually really good as shampoo!

    Think I’m finished now!

    I want them all, they are all so pretty!
