The Muse has been busy as a little bee pumping out plenty of wonderful Spring Collection reviews for you!
She has a slew more to go and they’ll keep coming until Spring actually hits, it’s still cold as all hells around here so Spring seems ages away.
For now let’s reflect on some of what she’s reviewed so far for you!
Possibly one of my favorite items this Spring would be Benefit Coralista! Truly a star for Spring (and Summer for that matter!)

What have you tested, tried, and purchased from the upcoming Spring Collections so far?
Busy waiting for Summer?
Tell the Muse!
It all started with black licorice. But not being satisfied with just black, Philosophy had to go and tempt the Muse with red licorice.
You may or may not know it but Philosophy Red Licorice Shower Gel has been around a few months now but just recently popped it’s pretty head into Sephora so of course upon seeing it at Sephora the Muse was all about picking it up and trying it out for herself.
And boy oh boy is it good. You needs it now please.
Philosophy Red Licorice is a dead on dupe for that pack of Twizzlers you probably reach for when you’re out at movie with friends or when you want a quick low calorie snack. It’s amazing how accurately they captured the scent. Strawberry sweetness mixed with that slightly plastic scent that the Muse associates with red licorice makes for an amazingly luscious shower gel!
Truly this one is a keeper!
How much can possibly be said in a review of a shower gel right? I won’t rave on and on and on but I will say that I think you really need to try this one especially if you’re a lover of sweeter scents or absolutely adore red licorice.
Loves this one!
Philosophy Shower Gels offer plenty of luxurious suds and can be used on your hair, in your bath, or in your shower! Multitasking with red licorice? Likey.
Snag this one!
It’s Muse Approved for purchase in a major way!
Tried it already?
Tell the Muse!
The Muse is quite fond of reminding the world that Philosophy has come a long way with it’s popular 3 in 1 Shower Gel Collection as of late. For a while there this Muse wasn’t really buying because some of the scents weren’t exactly “true”. For example, take Philosophy Sugar Cookie…lots of lemon but no cookie or sugar. What happened Philosophy? I can go on and on but the fact of the matter is and what remains important now is that Philosophy has more than redeemed itself as of late with it’s new and improved fantastic shower gel formula and the Muse likey, alot.
As part of it’s Spring Collection 2009, Philosophy has released a brand new 3 in 1 Shower Gel entitled Pink Frosted Layer Cake and it’s lovely to say the least!
Fun Fact: Although the world is fond of remembering Marie Antoinette’s immortal words, “Let them eat cake!” the Muse will happily inform you she never uttered those words but it sure is quite fun to think she did!
Anyway. What was I saying?
Oh yes, Philosophy Pink Frosted Layer Cake Shower Gel…mmm….mmmm….good! Philosophy gets it right again with a blend of sugary sweetness, a tiny hint of fruitiness, a touch of vanilla, and just the right amount of pink cake! Even Marie Antoinette would approve of this one!
I think this is possibly the best one they’ve come out with in a while aside from Red Licorice that is. I thought they did a fine job with the scent and it just engulfs you in a cloud of what a pink, sugary dessert should smell like. The gel can be used in your shower, in a warm bath, or to wash your hair with, as if you didn’t already know all that.
Philosophy Pink Frosted Layer Cake Shower Gel is a luxuriously sudsy shower gel that perfectly suitable for putting you in the mood for all things pink!
The Muse Approves it for purchase! Loves it!
Not so long ago in a distant land far, far away…well, ok, maybe it wasn’t so far away.
Not so long ago in a land quite close by named Bath and Body Works a Valentine’s release of a special 3 in 1 Shower Gel was released entitled Red Hot Love Story!
The Muse remembers the release like it was yesterday and cherishes her excitement upon taking her first sniff of the spicy sweetness that was Red Hot Love Story. Bath and Body Works extended it’s popular (and long gone *sniff*) Temptations line up to include the limited edition Red Hot Love Story for Valentine’s Day.
Now Red Hot Love Story was truly an interesting little product and the Muse simply loved it. Allow me, if I may, to bestow upon you some mental images to help you understand what it smelled like.
Last year the Muse was able to snag a few bottles of Bath and Body Works Red Hot Love Story at the semi-annual sale for $3 each. I was really dreading the day that I used my last bottle because I sincerely love this.
But good news!
The gods at Philosophy have introduced Cinnamon Hot Dots 3 in 1 Shower Gel! Bless be! Just in time for Valentine’s Day too!
It’s spicy, it’s hot, and it’s sweet. What more could a girl ask for? It’s an exact dupe of those old fashion Red Hot candies that you loved (or hated) as a child. First sniff hits you with a tingling spicy hotness and a slow sweetness that takes the edge off all that cinnamon! The Muse likes to think of it as ambrosia.
The Muse thought she’d give you a friendly service announcement about the fact that Philosophy Shower Gels can be used as a shampoo, shower gel, and a bubble bath!
Although I’m not big on V-Day I simply adore the novelty of Philosophy Cinnamon Hot Dots and it even puts me in a little bit of a festive mood for hearts, candy, and lurve.
Snag a bottle two for yourself and give a bottle or two to a friend to make their Valentine’s Day all the more sweeter!
The Muse Approves spicy, sweet, hotness from Philosophy!
Do you like the scent of red hots?
Tell the Muse!
Grab it now at Sephora!
The Muse likes the idea of eating her cake, candy, and other sweeties minus the calories. It just so happens she can enjoy all of the above with the Philosophy Spring Collection 2009.
The Muse loves the fact that Philosophy has drastically improved the formula of it’s popular line of Three in One Shower Gels. The scents are much stronger, lingering, and truer to their namesake. The Muse guarantees you’ll love all four of the newest Philosophy 3 in 1 Shower Gels without doubt! She’s sniffed them for her very self and thought they were divine and without the calories who can resist?
Four new scents to choose from to get you in the mood for not only Spring but Valentine’s Day too so tell your sweetie that you want a slice of cake, a piece of candy, or a decadent dessert from Philosophy!
Speaking of Valentine’s Day what would it be without Candy Hearts? A duo of lipshines flavored with Angel Food and Pink Bubbly to keep your honey happy when he kisses you!
Can’t get enough of Red Licorice? Check out the Philosophy I Love Red Licorice Gift Set which includes one Philosophy 3 in 1 Shower Gel scented in Red Licorice and a matching Red Licorice flavored lipshine! Tis love the Muse thinks!
All in all a rather sweet filled Spring season with Philosophy’s newest additions! The Muse will be bringing you a review shortly on these yummie new goodies. You didn’t not think she’s hauled these did you? Sweets for a sweet after all! *bats lashes*
What do you think?
