The secret is out...and it's F.A.B.U.L.O.U.S.!

I remember the first time I saw Philosophy products at a Sephora.  It was a number of years ago, and I remember being drawn to the sophisticated simplicity of the packaging.  When you pick up a box or a bottle, you are met with a fun and quirky Philosophy saying, and you can’t help but buy what they have to sell.  Philosophy just keeps getting better and better, and I had the opportunity to try out, and of course love a few of what they have to offer.Philosophy microdelivery exfoliating wash

It’s no secret I love to exfoliate.  I don’t wear make-up on a regular basis because of the build-up it leaves on my skin.  Unfortunately for me, I have had to play “grown-up” a lot in the past month, which means attending work functions and meetings more than usual.   Of course this means I have to fix my hair, wear outfits that don’t consist of hoody sweatshirts and leggings, and of course, apply a full face of makeup so that my expression is not one of tired negativity (it’s not my fault, even when I’m not tired, or grouchy, I’ve reached the age where I look WAAAY better with a full face).  With all of this makeup wearing, I’m finding myself yearning to exfoliate daily, which can be a problem as most facial scrubs are not gentle enough to be used every day. 

Philosophy Micro-Delivery Exfoliating Wash is the perfect scrub for a gal like me, who must remove every single vestige of makeup in order to really feel as though my skin is clean.  This scrub fits the bill. Made with diametaceous earth, my absolute favorite physical exfoliator because the particles are fine, and the earth is a natural product.  Diametaceous earth is a winner because although it does a wonderful job with is fine particles of scrubby buts, it is gentle on skin and feels amazing.  This scrub also contains fine natural ingredients such as Apple Amino Acids, Borage Seed Oil and Vitamin E, all of which nourishes and moisturizes the skin, while providing antioxidant benefits. I love this scrub because it is effective, yet gentle enough to use every day, helping remove dirt and makeup.

Philosophy razor sharpPhilosophy also offers a really cool shave gel called Razor Sharp.  Razor Sharp is a really pretty blue shave gel in a Philosophy-esque cool, simple clear bottle.   The “philosophy” as read on the front of the bottle is quirky and fun “looking razor sharp isn’t as important as being razor sharp.  We are bombarded with information regarding the importance of working out in order to keep ourselves looking and feeling our best.  Only when we “work in” do things actually begin to work out”. 

Razor Sharp contains soothing botanical blends, skin conditioning agents and can be used by both men and women (shhh, I have not had the “opportunity” to share yet).  I love the way this shave gel smells, clean and soapy, and quite frankly, masculine.  It brings me back to the days when I first started shaving my legs (I was 14, and really had no business shaving my legs, but what can you do).  I would sneak my dad’s Barbasol shave cream into the shower.  Razor Sharp is the high end version of Barbasol, but the clean masculine scent in the shower, whilst shaving my legs (now it should be my business more often than it is I’m ashamed to say).  This is a great shave gel, however, and although it is not recommended for sensitive skin (I’m moderately sensitive), my experience was one of smooth, nourished legs after using Razor Sharp. philosophy hope in a jar spf

I love Mother's Day. I think it's so important to show your Mom how much she means to you. Not that you shouldn't do that everyday, or whenever you see/talk to her, but it's a good day to make you take that extra time and extra effort to make your Mom feel special, valued, loved, and pampered. Make her take the time to pamper herself and not worry about anyone else on that day. Whether you're taking your mom out, or doing something special at home, you still might want to get her some useful & pampering gifts. So here are a few items that will make Mom smile:

Jill Martin Canvas BagsJill Martin Canvas Accessory Storage Bags

These fun printed storage bags are perfect for this Spring! As Mom is most likely doing some Spring cleaning and putting away winter clothes, she'll now have a fun & useful bag to store her winter shoes! I think these are great for keeping those special shoes safe in storage. They have taller bags for boots, and other bags for heels, sneakers, sandals, basically whatever shoe you need to protect! I also think these are perfect for travelling! I tend to put my shoes in plastic bags because I don't want them mixing with my clothes in my suitcase, but these bags will keep your shoes & your clothes protected while traveling, and they look much classier than a plastic bag! www.qvc.com 

Korres WIld Rose Vit CKorres: Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial

If you're looking to pamper Mom with some skincare, she's bound to love Korres Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial. We know Mom most likely doesn't have the time to treat her skin to a facial mask as much as she would like to, but she'll love the ease and benefits of this sleeping facial. With Wild Rose exract & Vitamin C, this sleeping facial address the visible signs of premature aging (caused by sun & environmental exposure). It provides antioxidant benefits, improves skin texture, evens skin tone, and reveals a smoother, brighter complexion by morning. This product makes sure Mom gets her beauty sleep! I absolutely love the rose fragrance in this cream, plus it's just the right amount of thickness for a nighttime product and is still breathable.  www.korresusa.com

Love is in the air this week and I admit, I have fallen hopelessly in love with philosophy’s unconditional love, firming body emulsion. It’s warm berry and vanilla fragrance is delicious and the moisturizing and toning qualities leave your skin soft and smooth and surrounded by love.

Philosophy believes in miracles and inspires us to live better by being ourselves. Their products are designed to make us look and feel our best and each product tells a story. I love my unconditional love story, don’t you?

Kiss Me - I’ve just exfoliated……. I tried an exfoliating lip scrub by Philosophy called Kiss Me and it’s remarkable. This was my first experience with any exfoliating lip product and I’m so glad that it was with Kiss Me. This product is easy to use and the results are fantastic. The sugar crystals are gentle and effective in the removal of unwanted dead lip skin. I applied a dab of Kiss Me on my finger tips and massaged it in a circular motion on both my lower and upper lips. After the sugar crystals dissolved I gently washed my lips with a warm cloth. The results were stunning!! My lips did indeed appear softer and felt smoother.

But wait – there’s more!!

Philosophy has also created Kiss Me Tonight which is described as an “intense lip therapy”. I used Kiss me Tonight in combination with the Kiss Me exfoliator. The fragrance of Kiss Me Tonight is truly delightful. I have a problem with dry cracked lips so I use Kiss Me Tonight in both the morning and evenings. Kiss Me Tonight works well keeping my lips looking good and feeling great.

The combination of Kiss Me and Kiss Me Tonight provides wonderful a “spa” treatment for your lips.

Remember take time to enjoy life!
