shop :: philosophy's holiday collection

philosophy was kind enough to send me some of their products to try. I have some girlfriends coming over to test everything, but while I wait for that I couldn't help but spoil myself without them. So far I've tried the microexfoliating treatment and their best selling hope in a jar and really like them! 

I know from working in the beauty product industry that philosophy sets the bar high in terms of product performance, innovation, and marketing. Plus, I've always been a sucker for their packaging and (most of) their seasonal fragrances. Some of the scents are a little too sweet for my liking, but I'm dying to smell spiced clementine toddy and use the candy cane or gingerbread body scrub. Mmm... 

I prefer to buy directly from philosophy's website because Sephora doesn't always bring in all of their holiday sets (which are the best part). If you're not inspired to pick up some of the cute little gift ideas (so many options under $25), it's a good chance to try their skincare products in smaller bottles and at an ideal price! 

I love looking at their website, even just to envision the yummy scents and appreciate the packaging:
