Every year I look forward to sharing the Philosophy Bumper collection which features as a QVCUK TSV – Todays Special Value. This collection contains three beautiful products in your choice of fragrance at an unbelieveable price. This is the most perfect gift for anyone that loves the brand but also needs some luxury and pampering in their life.
This collection is a great way to try the best selling and most loved fragrances from Philosophy, including brand new limited edition products. Included in this collection is a super size Eau de Parfum 120ml Fragrance of your choice from Amazing Grace, Pure Grace, Falling in Love and Baby Grace plus Supersize Shampoo, bath and shower gel as well as the UK launch of the brand new Luminous Body Crème. I have the Falling in Love collection so will be describing that fragrance.
Falling in Love Eau de Parfum Spray 120ml –
“when it comes to love you need not fall but rather surrender, surrender to the idea that you must love yourself before you can love another. You must absolutely trust yourself before you can absolutely trust another and, most importantly, you must accept your flaws before you can accept the flaws of another.”
This fragrance is actually a scent I love to wear in summer, it is so beautiful in a way that I wasn’t expecting when I first tried it a couple of years ago. I love spicy scents or sexy floral’s usually, but this is a warm, sensual fruity floral that has melted me. It is so hard to describe fragrance as it really is different on everyone, but when I spritz this I smell an effervescence, a bubbly fruity, uplifting scent of Blackberries, then as it settles a little I get the lift of floral from the Jasmin, followed by the warming almost buttery note of Vanilla that has a slight musky undertone. This really is a complex fragrance. When I wear this on cold rainy days it suddenly smells a lot sweeter, on warm sunny days it dries down to a more sensual fragrance. I think this is a happy-go-lucky, uplifting scent that may suit a younger wearer who loves sweeter tones. I adore this fragrance as it reminds me of happy times each time I wear it and that’s good enough for me.
Falling in Love Shampoo, Bath & Shower 480ml –
This Lavender coloured, silky 3 in 1 product is ideal to relax into and perfectly compliments the fragrance of the same name, as part of the layering process. As relaxing as it can be uplifting, thanks to the fruity ingredient’s, your mood and sense of smell will really determine how best you enjoy this. I love this bath fragrance of an evening as I really feel it is a great way to end my day, it just makes me feel really dreamy and happy. This can be used in the bath just by adding a few pumps (included) to running water to create a soft, creamy lather, on a shower sponge it really foams up and creates a gorgeous cleansing product for the body and on the hair it offers a thorough deep clean. I have used this in all 3 ways and it leaves my hair beautifully clean ( if only very lightly fragranced) and not at all dry and my skin beautifully soft and lightly scented, however I prefer not to use products containing SLS, on my hair at the moment. The bathroom will smell amazing for hours after use. The scent is ever so light on the body so I would happily add my own perfume after, without it clashing. A great start to the layering routine of this collection.
The philosophy on this bottle reads
“falling in love doesn’t begin with falling in love with others. it begins with falling in love with ourselves. loving ourselves is healthy and a fulfilment of out purpose. love must first grow from within us. learn to deeply and fully cherish your heart, your soul and your body and, only then, will you understand what it is to truly love another
UK Launch -Falling in Love Luminous Body Crème –
The texture of this body crème is absolutely divine, it is light in texture yet deeply hydrating on the skin. It has a wonderful fragrance throw that really envelopes the body with your fragrance choice and when I apply this not only does my skin feel amazing but the scent lasts all day/night. The only problem I have is that as someone with a more porous skin type, my skin did not ‘Shimmer’, yes it looked hydrated and smooth and lovely, but I didn’t notice any luminosity or shimmer, so if you do please let me know.
This complete three piece collection also comes limited edition gifts boxes and ribbon so that you can create a perfect gift if giving for Christmas.
My thoughts on this collection : Having been a Philosophy fan for years, I look forward to these kits. This years kit is slightly smaller with the amount of different products but they are very consice and lovely and you do have a choice out of the four fragrances mentioned above. If you are keeping this for yourself, it is ever such a pretty pampering collection. All of the Shampoo, Bath and Shower products create such light, fluffy, soft bubbles that are a joy to wash and bathe in as they leave just a kiss of a scent to the skin. The EDP rounds it off with a beautiful burst of fragrance and the shimmer crème is perfect for applying to the skin when wearing those all important Christmas outfits. An incredible value kit for the price when you consider how much this would cost if you went direct to Philosophy.
This collection is only available as a Todays Special Value on QvcUK on Saturday 27th October for 24 hours or whilst stocks last. You can purchase the product HERE when it becomes available.
