Holiday Product Review - Philosophy Snow Angel Set

Posted by Ashesela K , Tuesday, November 9, 2010 5:28 PM

Philosophy
Snow Angel Set
8 oz Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath
8 ox Body Lotion
$26 CAN



What the website says:
“A heavenly two-piece bath and body set that includes a three-in-one shampoo, shower gel, and bubble bath and a moisturizing body lotion infused with a crisp, clean scent.

What it does:
This set recaptures a sense of childhood joy with a pure scent that hints at the essence of a fresh snowfall. The luxurious, moisturizing formulas of both products leave skin feeling silky soft.”

What I Think:
I loved absolutely EVERYTHING about this set, the looks, the texture, the adorable packaging…everything except the smell. I don’t know what it was, but I really did NOT like that scent!! It’s such a shame too, as this is such a cute gift set!! The texture of the body lotion is very nice and the scent (if you like it) lasts a while. The 3-in-1 has a beautiful blue shimmer to it, and both of the bottles are decent in size with 8 oz of product in each. The “philosophy” is fun to read, and the box it comes in would be nice to keep for storing things.

I tested the product at Sephora, and I was a little wishy-washy on the scent there, but decided that it was nice and that I really wanted to buy the set (because it’s just so darn CUTE!! ^_^) Off I went, grabbing the box and paying for it quickly on a whim, and I left the store feeling giddy with my purchase.

When I started using it at home, I noticed that the scent wasn’t as nice as I remembered it to be. Maybe I convinced myself in the store that it smelled good because the overwhelming cuteness factor of the product packaging was getting to me? I am known for my love of winter, snow and the colour blue, and this package embodies all of that, with a bit of sparkle added to the side. Maybe it was because Sephora has so many other smells that my nose was assaulted and couldn’t judge things accurately? Maybe my nose was just somewhat stuffed (like it usually is, stupid allergies) and altered the scent?
Whatever it was, I made the wrong decision in buying this product. I tried to wear it several times, but then it got to the point that I just thought “no way” and returned the product to the store. I then purchased the Holiday Hostess set instead (which I will review later on). :)

Would I buy this again and any tips?
If I enjoyed the scent, I definitely would repurchase!! This is such a sweet gift set. Just make sure the person you are buying it for will enjoy the fragrance, as it would be a shame to make the same mistake that I did (although it’s the thought that really matters ;)!) This is also a limited edition product, so if you are planning on getting it, I would suggest picking it up fast!

INGREDIENTS:
I don’t have the packaging anymore.

I think the fragrance is really important when buying and using a product. You want it to smell good and clean at the same time!
