Philosophy Most Wonderful Things Holiday Set
Philosophy Most Wonderful Things Holiday Set ($79 CAD):
A great intro to the Philosophy skincare range, this beautiful set includes a mini Purity Made Simple face cleanser, a mini Microdelivery Peel duo (full review here), a couple of Renewed Hope in a Jar foil packs (one of my all-time fave face creams, full review here), and a mini Time in a Bottle serum. Except for the Renewed Hope in a Jar foil packs, the mini-sized products are all pretty decently sized so you can definitely get a good idea of how they will work for your skin. The gift box the products come in is also very impressive. Not only is it pretty and festive, the quality is sturdy and well-made.

Philosophy Loveswept Holiday Set
Philosophy Loveswept Holiday Set ($65 CAD):
This is a three-piece gift set featuring a full-sized (60ml) Loveswept Eau de Toilette, a Shampoo, Bath & Shower Gel, and a Whipped Body Creme. Loveswept is a really lovely and refreshing fruity fragrance with notes of bergamot, oranges, jasmine, and passionfruit. To my nose, the citrus notes aren't too sharp or harsh. Blended with the florals they remind me a lot of the sweet and comforting peachiness of Benefit's Just Confess You're Obsessed.

Philosophy Shimmering Snowlace, Vanilla Bean Nutmeg & Candy Cane
Philosophy Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath ($21 CAD):
Philosophy always comes up with amazing holiday scents for their beloved shower gels that double as shampoo and bubble bath. This year there is the Shimmer Snowlace (a soft winter floral), Vanilla Bean Nutmeg (a super yummy and festive cookie flavor), and Candy Cane (refreshing peppermint). I use these guys as shower gels and they all smell so good! One of these 480ml bottles lasts quite a long time as well.

Philosophy is available online and in stores at Sephora, The Bay, and Shoppers Drug Mart.
