Ooh that sounded happy and chirpy didn’t it!
Today’s post is on a gift I had from my mum last year for my birthday (FYI almost a year ago….eek!) so I decided it was about time I got my act together and wrote about it as it’s such a lovely set.
First of all, who doesn’t love a Philosophy gift set? Everyone goes mad for them at Christmas, they have some stunning collections and I always see people going crazy for them in the sales afterwards too.
Their packaging design is unlike anyone else’s and I think they’re really pretty; the balloon pattern and the bow on top is so cute!
You can see on the side of the box the contents of the gift set; Vanilla Birthday Cake shower gel, bubble bath and shampoo; and Vanilla Birthday Cake lipgloss.
Onto the main star of the show! The Vanilla Birthday Cake is a 240ml bottle of a multi purpose product. Philosophy are famous for this and their design. I love that the front of the bottle contains a recipe for a vanilla birthday cake, its so simple but fun and I’d love to know if it actually works!
This smells really luxurious and sweet, it has a very warm and comforting smell like warm cake from the oven does. It is very creamy and rich and so a little does go a long way, but I did find it hard to get the product out of the bottle as it was quite stiff and as the product is so thick it doesn’t move very fast!
The lip gloss is a nice touch to add to a Birthday themed gift; who doesn’t love a shiny lip on their birthday!
This looks to be a gold glittery gloss but actually comes out as a clear shimmery gloss. It is perfect to wear on its own and over other lipsticks and will give any look that little something extra.
It is SUPER shiny and I really love wearing it over a red lip like MAC’s Russian Red or Kate Moss 107.
This was a lush present to recieve and I’ve since recommended my mum get it for many other people she knows and they’ve all loved it too.
This gift retails for £18 and can be found on their website here or at Boots. As I said previously they have updated the packaging to a more grown up blue and yellow design which is just as pretty.
