Philosophy The Holiday Handbook Set Review

philosophy the holiday handbook gift set

I’m in love with the Philosophy The Holiday Handbook Set ($20). I purchased one as a gift, just one. Started playing with it, ended up keeping it, went back and ordered five more as stocking stuffers.

SO cute!

For those who apply hand cream as chronically as they do lip balm this set is for you!

Philosophy The Holiday Handbook Set is an addictive little set of festively scented Philosophy Hand Creams. You get three 1 oz tubes of hand cream in the set in the following yummy scents:

  • Homemade Honey Buns
  • Spiced Gingerbread Cookie
  • Cranberry Medley

These a nice light weight hand cream that includes moisturizing elements like shea, mango, and cocoa butter. The cream absorbs quickly, provides plenty of moisture, and doesn’t leave my hands feeling sticky or greasy.

Plus did I mention they smell absolutely delightful. After application I’ll be typing away on my keyboard and get faint sniffs of a Gingerbread Cookie or tart cranberries…! Yum!

The set is adorable and makes a wonderful gift or stocking stuffer! Or you can just grab one for yourself and place a tube each on your desk, vanity, and night table.

    this looks so good! Sephora informed me if I just spend another $136 I’ll have rouge status and if I had been thinking of others instead of my own greedy self during the VIB sale, I would’ve picked up awesome present stuffers like this.

      hehe ;-D I know about being greedy!

    What would you compare the size of these bottles too? I see that they are only 1oz., that doesn’t seem very big.


    • 11/13/13 14:24 the Muse:

      i dunno Krystal I don’t really have other 1 oz squeeze tubes currently in my stash…perhaps Biore watery essence SPF? About that size?

    Waaaant! I luv gingerbread. I love the smell, taste and look of it. My decorations inside and out are gingerbread themed. I will give the other two away! BTW, My hubby ordered the Cookie Exchange set on your and a couple of your readers’ rec — can’t wait to see it!

    Has anyone tried the recipes on the tubes? Curious, just might havta. That’d be a small batch of cookies tho.

      hey cookie never! always say I will because all the recipes (not only on the cookie ones) on the shower gels sound yummie ;-D but I never have! Have fun with the Cookie exchange it matches your alias 😀 You’ll adore this! it’s a spicy warm gingerbread 😀 true to cookie!

    Oh my gosh, this set killed me! I LOVE the honey buns scent, and after getting this trio, I had to go buy multiple bottles of the 3-in-1 body wash. I just want to engulf myself in it and become a honey bun, it’s so delicious.
