I’m not affiliated with or endorsing PBS but it’s a project that’s very near and dear to my heart and a little pimpin’ never hurt anyone hehe!
I can remember as far back as when I was about 7 or 8 year’s old and seeing little old ladies carrying around PBS tote bags rushing for the bus! Funny as back then it was more along the lines of ewww who’d carry around a PBS tote!
Now I guess I’m that little old lady because I carry mine around like it’s Prada!
In all seriousness two projects that are very important to me are Animal Rescue and PBS so if by some slim chance your interested in supporting PBS you might want to wander over to their Shop PBS site and order yourself a Philosophy Tree House Hand Care Kit.
The kit includes an Philosophy Apple Hand Wash and an Apple Hand Lotion. It’s $25 for the kit and you might be wondering what’s so special about this collection. The special part is your $25, 100% of it, goes to support PBS!
So why not give a gift that gives? I purchased 4 of these as stocking stuffers and it pleases me that my total cost is being donated to PBS!
Cheers to Philosophy for being so amazingly generous and supportive of PBS!
It may sound unappealing but I rock the home shopping boat every year for Christmas! Many people think that shopping from QVC will nab you cheap gifts that are not worth the effort or the money of ordering but that’s not the case! You can nab some great gifts that are inexpensive and quite posh! They also offer great flexible payment options to spread your payments into small monthly payments rather then paying the entire amount right away! Many cosmetic options also have some products that are exclusive to QVC so these are items you can’t purchase from anywhere else!
I’ve gathered together a few Philosophy items that are really great deals in my opinion and maybe they’ll simplify your Christmas gift list!
Philosophy Lemonade 5-Piece Deluxe Set Available at QVC Item Number A18856 $80USD
Includes all of the following items:
- 16-fl oz old fashioned lemonade shampoo, shower gel, and bubble bath
- 8-oz lemonade body butter
- 23-oz old fashioned lemonade salt scrub
- 2-oz lemonade hand cream
- 0.5 oz lemon-flavored lip shine
Purchased separately this entire lot would run you $91USD
Lemonade isn’t my favorite philosophy Shower Gel but this lot of items will save you $11 if you purchased them separately so not a bad deal!
Philosophy Flavored Lip Collection Available from QVC Item Number A72108 $29.98
Includes all of the following:
- lip gloss in vanilla birthday cake
- lip gloss in powdered sugar cookie
- lip gloss in raspberry sorbet
- lip gloss in melon daiquiri
Purchased separately each lip shine is $10 which totals $40 for four! You’ll save $10 by getting this set!
Philosophy Amazing Grace Head to Toe 6 Piece Layering Kit Available from QVC Item Number A4518
Includes all of the following items:
- 8-oz amazing grace shampoo, bath, and shower gel
- 8-oz amazing grace hair conditioner
- 8-oz amazing grace firming body emulsion
- 1-oz amazing grace hand cream
- 2-oz amazing grace spray fragrance
- 0.27 oz amazing grace perfume oil
- 2-oz bonus purity made simple facial cleanser
- 0.4 oz bonus hope in a jar moisturizer
Some of the items in set set aren’t valued but if you add together the shampoo, conditioner, body emulsion, hand cream, spray perfume, and oil it comes to $87 or more!
After telling you all about the virtues of Philosophy’s Sugar Plum Fairy in a previous post I’m excited to tell you that the line has been extended to a salt scrub!
Philosophy Sugar Plum Fairy Body Scrub
This scurb is a Nordstrom Exclusive and available for purchase now! The scrub is $25 which is a good deal as they are heavy duty jars full of yummie scrub to make your rough bits nice and soft!
I just purchased Senorita Margarita scrub for a dear friend as a gift and this I believe would make a very nice Christmas pressie if she ends up loving the scrub!
You can purchase your Sugar Plum Fairy by clicking your way over to Nordies! It’s in the Muse’s cart already!
Ah something to make the Muse happy
A gift set that contains her most favorite Philosophy shower gel that makes a special appearance every Holiday Season! The Sugar Plum Fairy!
You can get both the gloss and a shower gel in this Nordstrom Exclusive set for $16!
Sugar Plum Fairy is a bit deceiving (at least for me she is). I originally purchased my first bottle two seasons ago off the Philosophy website without knowing what she smelled like! In my minds eye I had assumed she’d be a spicy sort of scent boy was I wrong! She’s quite fruity and sweet! Some people may find she smells a bit plastic like but I really enjoy the smell! It’s very difficult to explain exactly what it smells like! It smells almost like some sort of fruity gum or candy with a faint, faint underlay of pineapple. It’s so yum and I buy it every year!
The lipgloss is a complete contradiction to the scent of the shower gel! Go firgure! This is what I had originally thought the shower gel would smell like! It’s spicy and warm and almost gingerbread like but not quite (real gingerbread not Philosophy’s version of gingerbread!).
I purchase it every year and at $16 for the gloss and an 8oz bottle of Shower Gel it’s back on my wish list for another season! Especially for gift giving reasons!
In celebration of Sugar Plum Fairy’s return I cracked open my last bottle I purchased last year! Ahhh now I can safely use it (without fear it wasn’t making a come back) and stash up on some more!
Tis the season to smell fruity and delicious!
Remember way back in the day when The Body Shop had essential oils for relieving stress, waking you up, calming you, etc…
I remember being in High School at the time and one in particular that my friends and I had toted around was a wake up temple oil that smelled of cooling peppermint. You’d take it and place a bit on the temples of your head and on the pulses of your wrist and supposedly this would keep you awake through long lectures (in my case it was the religious study ones that put me out like a light! I went to an all girls private catholic school which meant an hour and a half of religious instruction twice a week!).
Philosophy has recaptured this idea and are selling essential oil sets. I find the entire idea sort of intriguing. Especially since the descriptions sound really interesting! Logically speaking I don’t think the smell of lavender is going to make me sleep but hey at least it comes in a cute gift box right?
They have two sets available with two oils per gift set (.12oz) for $25.
Philosophy ‘Stuffies & Stressies’ has two oils with congestion-relieving eucalyptus to give you the pick me up you need during the yucky flu season!
Of course ‘Stuffies and Stressies also promises to relieve anxiety and stress! The Muse needs a liter of this stuff as her anxiety and stress levels are full on lately.
Obviously, I’m not buying the stress and anxiety relief but I am intrigued to see if it helps my stuffy nose during a harsh cold!
Philosophy ‘Sleepies & Weepies’ is another set the Muse can use as it promises to fight fatigue *yawn*! It also happens to ease depression and make you happy! And just as I was saying earlier, it does all this through the cooling scent of peppermint and citrus oils!
Well the bad news is if you’re depressed, tired, feeling stressed, or just sad I hate to say it but I doubt essential oils are going to help but the good news is these make damn cute novelty gifts
Wanna relieve your stuffies, stressies, sleepies and weepies? Head on over to Nordstrom to purchase these cute gift sets for yourself!
