Nordstrom Exclusive Philosophy ‘the Natural’ Beauty Box

I really do love some of Philosophy’s offerings and the idea of having a cute little packaged box with some of their greater products really appeals to me!

Philosophy’s new “the Natural” Beauty Box contains everything you need to create a super natural, super lovely look!

The box is $75 USD and quite a good deal in my opinion. It’s also a particularly lovely deal do to the fact that you’ll also receive a Hope in a Jar and Amazing Grace Buffing Body Wash sample with your purchase at Nordstroms.

The box contains all of the following items:
Philosophy Purity Cleanser 2oz (The Muse’s favorite cleanser!)
Philosophy The Present Clear Makeup 1oz
Philosophy Supernatural Mineral Blush Duo in Pink/Bronze
Philosophy Supernatural Blush Brush
Philosophy Big Gorgeous Mascara
Philosophy Supernatural Fingerpaints in Cool (I LOVE these things!)
Philosophy Supernatural Lip Pencil in Nude
Philosophy Supernatural Lipgloss in Soft Pink
Philosophy Microdelivery Peel 0.3oz
Philosophy Vitamin C/Peptide Crystals

Although the skincare products are smaller sizes all that makeup items included are full size which makes for a rather nice lot of items at a really wonderful price.

I have many of the items in the box but I sure wish they had introduced this before as I’d have been all over it!

Philosophy Green Apple 3 in 1 Shower Gel Review

Philosophy Green Apple 3 in 1 Shower Gel Review

Mmmmm look what I found hanging out at my local Nordies:

I had blogged about Philosophy Green Apple 3 in 1 Shower Gel a few weeks ago but I hadn’t been around Nordstrom for a while to get my hands on it. Last night I hopped into Nordies to have a look at MAC Colour Forms and the bright, neon color of Green Apple lured me to the display.

I didn’t order this online because I was a bit worried I’d be disappointed. Philosophy makes great shower gels but sometimes they are lacking and scents are really hit and miss! However, we have a total winner with the new Green Apple scent!

The Muse loves it! I used it this morning and I can’t rave enough about the delicious smell. It’s very true to it’s name and smells like a crunchy green apple but the best part of all is the cocktail of sweet versus sour. It smells like a sour apple jolly rancher candy! Mmmmm! It has that sweet scent with a nice sour edge and kick. They captured the essence of a sour candy beautifully!

I have to say I have had my share of disappointments with Philosophy Shower Gels and I am slightly choosy when I purchase a new one. But they really did an outstanding job with this one. I felt like the scent was more pronounced and stronger in comparison to older releases. I also noticed that it seemed to sud up more and offered tons and tons of luxurious foam!

If you like sweet scents with a bit of a kick this one is for you!

The Muse gives it a big Muse Approval for purchase!

Grab this one up for yourself!

Philosophy Purity Foaming Cleanser Review

Hello pretties!

How are you today? It’s been a rather nutty, busy day today for me so reviews are kinda slowing come. I normally have plenty scheduled in advance but this week I’m a tiny bit behind! Sorry about that! I also have some comments to get through, I’m working on ‘em :)

Anyway!

I really like Philosophy Purity. It’s part of my daily skin care routine to remove my makeup and such. It works really well at getting pretty much all my makeup off and does so without drying my skin out which is a fantastic! I do have one minor rant when it comes to Purity, I hate when they advertise it as a remove all cleanser. Get waterproof mascara off, get hardcore eye makeup off…Um no….

Don’t get me wrong it works really well at removing standard makeup but give me a break this stuff is NOT removing waterproof mascara! They advertise it like it’ll be the only product you’ll ever need to take your makeup off…Not!

Anyway, minor rant on my part.

On to the rave……….!

Since I heart Purity so much of course I was happy to see a foaming version of it available and I ran as fast as my little legs (my long super model legs in my minds eye of course!) would carry me to the nearest Sephora to nab me some! And the verdict is in…..I like it…alot…but I don’t love it.

It deserves to be mentioned that I love me some Kose Airy Whip. If you know anything at all about your Muse you realize that she stashes Airy Whip away in large quantities so the idea of Purity coming out with a foaming that was readily available within the states really had me tickled. Shipping Airy Whip via airmail in large quantities is costly so here in was my solution! I’d be able to get a Purity in a foam….it’d be like Airy Whip…kinda…sorta….

Actually…

When you think about it the cost of shipping a single bottle of Airy Whip over from say Japan or Singapore still works out cheaper than purchasing a bottle of Philosophy Purity Foaming Cleanser. $21.50 USD is the smaller size and $34.50 USD is the larger size, not really cheap but that’s around the same price as the regular Purity so no big deal right? Right.

Philosophy is obviously very on top of the game because the bottle was very well thought in my opinion. It has an applicator that slants upwards so once you press it the product easily slips into your hand without making a mess. This is also particularly good when your hands are wet. No grabbing the bottle to tip it downwards. Just pump it and go!

The formula is good. I like working with foam! It must be my inner kid but I love that awesome feeling when pumping some into my hand and feeling it squish around. I won’t admit to painting a beard on my face with the foam, I’d never do that, I’m a mature adult of course. The foam suds up as you circle it around your face and it whisks away makeup gently without drying your skin out.

After use I didn’t feel entirely clean so I proceeded to use my regular Purity. I guess you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. For some reason I just didn’t feel like it did that great a job taking off everything where as when I use the regular Purity or Kose Airy Whip I feel like my skin is squeaky clean. However, after a few days of use I realized that feeling might very well be in my head but I need to test it further before making my final decision.

I’m entirely sure why I don’t love this. I like it alot but that “can’t live without it” feeling just isn’t there. If you already own Purity I’d say stick with that no sense picking this up.

It’s a nice product and it works pretty ok but I’m not as excited as I was after trying it out!

The Muse has to do further analysis on Philosophy Purity Foaming Cleanser……..!

Tried this?

Love it?

Love the regular Purity?
