Philosophy Gift Set Review

After receiving a couple of Philosophy products for Christmas, I decided to check out their winter sale. I came across a gift set named 'think beautiful thoughts' on sale for £20 containing 5 products so I bought it. Here are my thoughts.


This 3-in-1 cleanser for the face and eyes is amazing. By applying just a small amount of this cleaner to my face in the morning has left my skin smooth and feeling so much healthier. The fragrance-free formula is perfect for sensitive skin. Philosophy says it deep cleans pores and eliminates make up build up and I this is definitely right. My skin feels clean and the natural oil extracts have helped to condition my skin. Priced at £8 for 90ml of product this is definitely worth a try. You can find it HERE.


This daily moisturizer has improved my skin texture and tone, leaving it smooth and radiant. You only need to use a fingertip size amount of product and it covers the whole face. It is so lightweight which means you don’t feel like you are blocking up your pores. The name ‘Hope in a jar’ is perfectly fitting because it leaves your skin feeling hydrated and healthy. This is normally priced at £10 for the smaller sized jar(15ml)and can be found HERE


This is a multitasking eye cream for dark circles, puffiness and lines. Personally I haven't noticed much of a difference in dark circles when using this product.

This is only a half size bottle. You can buy a 15ml bottle of this cream for £30 HERE.


This is a hydrating antioxidant serum helps to brighten a dull complexion and is also said to help reduce the risk of fine lines and wrinkles. This serum hydrates and brightens the skin. I have only used this a few times but so far I haven't noticed any difference so I am slightly disappointed with this product.If you want to try it a 30ml bottle can be bought HERE for £34.


This pre-saturated chemical peel mask is used to reduce the appearance of dark spots and discolouration as well as brightening. I was apprehensive to try this mask because I have sensitive skin and the mask seemed very harsh. I found the mask made my skin feel super smooth and fresh. 

I also received a free welcome gift set using the code uyp853 which contained sample sizes of three popular products; purity, hope in a jar and amazing grace.

These samples are prefect size for traveling and I love all of the products. Amazing grace is a multipurpose product that can be used as shampoo or bath/shower gel. It has a strong scent but I love it! The scent is clean and very feminine with a hint of blossom. You can buy a large bottle (480ml) of this HERE for £19.


I hope you've enjoyed my very first blog post. Please feel free to comment and let me know what you think. Have you tried any Philosophy products? Do you have any recommendations?
