Philosophy are a high end brand that I've been lusting after for some time now. So when the Boxing Day Sales hit, I quickly snapped up two kits from Philosophy. The first kit I bought was 'Hope Favourites Skin Care' which was reduced from £30.00 down to £15.00. Next up I bought the kit which was reduced from £22 down to £11 - bargain! So, without further ado, here's my favourites from the two kits.
The 'Hope Favourites Skin Care Kit' contained four items of skincare and I wanted to show you my two favourites which I will definitely be repurchasing. One of my new years resolutions was to look after my skin more which is something I've been neglecting lately and these two products are perfect for me to build up a new routine. First up, it's the 'Micro Delivery Exfoliating Wash'. I love a good exfoliator and even better, this is gentle enough that I am able to use it once a day. It's a really mild facial wash which has super gentle exfoliating beads. I only need a very small amount to cover my whole face and I can massage it in for up to 30 seconds before splashing it off with cold water. The aftermath of the facial wash feels amazing - my skin feels so refreshed, clean and pampered. It's a pretty price facial wash but I promise it's worth the money. It helps brighten up my skin, removes any dirt and grime and generally leaves me feeling squeaky clean.
Another skincare favourite of mine is the 'Purity Made Simple Cleanser' which is a three in one cleanser for face and eyes. I actually found that this did sting my eyes a little so I won't be using this to remove my eye makeup. However, the purity cleanser is a really smooth and creamy formula which cleans away grime and traces of makeup as well as moisturising the skin. I was a little confused at first as to whether I just used this with a cotton pad, but this is actually a wash off cleanser as above. It feels really gentle and moisturising and it gives me the same sparkling clean feeling I get after using the Micro Delivery exfoliating wash.
Next up are my three favourite minis which I found in my 'Philosophy Classics' set. As you can see I've got three shower gels - Vanilla Birthday Cake, Raspberry Sorbet and Melon Daiquiri. Each of the titles are pretty self explanatory and smell good enough to eat! I think my favourite out of the three would have to be Melon Daiquiri as it's so fruity and refreshing. All three shower gels double up as a bubble bath and shampoo, however I'm currently just using them for everyday washing.
