Philosophy Skincare

Tuesday, 29 September 2015
I have been trying this lovely Philosophy skincare routine for last couple of weeks and I am really liking the stripped back simplicity of it. Even the packaging screams sleep minimalism. Both products are extremely effective and I really think that, due to the simplicity of them, they would suit a lot of different skin types.

Philosophy Purity Made Simple One-Step Cleanser $30
I have had this little sample for ages but for some reason it ended up in the deep,dark depths of my sample drawer. In any case, I pulled it out when I got the moisturiser so I could try the full range. It really does live up to its name as a pure and simple cleanser that really nicely cleanses my skin but doesn't leave it stripped or tight at all. It is also really gentle on my eyes too and even when I got it in my eyes a little bit it didn't burn. Of course I will always still remove my eye makeup with Bioderma Micellar, you could probably get away with removing most eye makeup with this if you a little less strict with your skincare. Bascially, if you have any skin type (even sensitive) and want a simple, non-drying cleanser definitely check this one out. Also, for some reason I had it in my head that this was way more expensive than it actually is, but I think that is extremely reasonable and comes in various sizes; 90mL for $18, 240mL for $30 and 480mL for $46. When I eventually run through my backlog of skincare, I will definitely consider repurchasing this one.

Philosophy Renewed Hope in a Jar Dry $55
I have very dry skin which even gets powdery and flaky in winter so I was immediately drawn to this beautiful little jar. The original hope in a jar kind of has cult status so I was keen to try out something from the range. What I like most about it is that it is extremely hydrating but not heavy at all! It has a gorgeous light gel consistency that absorbs so fast, making it the perfect day cream to use under makeup. It also has a nice fresh nondescript scent and just feels really refreshing on the skin. I usually prefer a heavier oil based moisturiser for my night (Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Nuit is currently my everything!) but I really like my day cream to be as light as possible so my makeup doesn't move all over the place so this one is perfect. I also did of course notice an improvement in the moisture levels and texture of my skin so it basically did everything I could ask of a day cream! It is also worth noting that the jar is a big larger than most at 60mL while most run between 40 and 50mL so that makes it a little better value. Yes, of course it is still mid to high end but you really do get what you pay for and I would say it is worth the splurge.

I hope you enjoyed reading about these gorgeous Philosophy products as much as I enjoyed using them. I love the minimalist perfection in the products, the packaging... everything! I really do prefer simple skincare that just does what it says rather than those products that tout 15 effects and try to tell you that they will give you a new face. Seriously, I hate gimmicky skincare so this range is just perfect to me! I really want to try other products like the range like the eye cream, serum, hand cream and adorable little lip therapy tub so hopefully I can get my hands on some of those over the next few months to try out for you guys too.

Have you tried any Philosophy products? What are your picks from the range. I'd love to know so leave me a comment!

Stay Rosy.
