A huge thank you to Ulta & ShopStyle for sponsoring this post.
I have loved the Amazing Grace products from philosophy for years! I have the giant shower gel and lotion in my bathroom right now and love the subtle, fresh scent. So, when I recently had the opportunity to try out even more of philosophy’s lovely products from Ulta, I was stoked.
We have an Ulta store just up the road from my house here in Portland…so I used the order online and pick-up option to grab my new products. So convenient! I went with a couple of products to help boost my 42-almost-43-year-old skin and a pretty, pretty scent from the Amazing Grace line with Bergamot.
I mean, if that’s not a little treat-yourself trip in the car these days, I don’t know what is.
My Fav 3 philosophy Products At Ulta
I’ll admit. What first drew me to philosophy products long ago is my graphic designer obsession with pretty, simple packaging. Do not bombard me with too much craziness on the product packaging. I will leave you on the shelf. But give me a gorgeous, classic serif font on a white background and I’m in. And then I tried the products and I was really in. Haha.
philosophy has been on my gift-giving list for years, too. I love gifting their Amazing Grace sets to friends and fam. They’ve just gotten it right with products that work and scents that are lovely without being overwhelming. I love them.
I was so excited to try out my first overnight mask, and this Microdelivery Dream Peel did not disappoint, my friends. I do clean my face every night and morning, but let’s just say it’s the lazy gal’s version of that (a quick swipe of toner and then moisturizer.) Well, this not only made me step up my cleansing game a bit, but it immediately improved my skin texture in just the first night. And all I had to do was apply and sleep! Here. For. It.
This AHA- and BHA-containing product has the coolest little twist-tip that makes the application of the peel super-easy and not messy Best of all, you don’t waste product. Just twist the pink applicator to open, apply an even layer over your face at night after washing and toning, twist back to close and gently wipe off the applicator. It dries quickly and doesn’t feel sticky, so sleeping in it is no prob. I used it for three nights in a row, as suggested, and will repeat that weekly. I can’t wait to continue using it because I can already see it working…smooth skin texture after just the first week.
We need a miracle after this heck of a year and this stuff is lovely. The Anti-Wrinkle Miracle Worker is hydrating and just what you want in wintertime. Let’s just say I am slathering it on every night that I don’t use the Microdelivery Dream Peel! It soaks in really well though, so it can totes be used in the mornings, too. I put it on my neck and back of my hands, as well. I have combination skin, so I love that this really hydrates but doesn’t just sit on top of my skin.
Like I said, I’ve been a fan of philosophy scents and bath products for years — and this Amazing Grace Bergamot scent is not only in the most gorgeous bottle you’ve ever seen, but it smells incredible. It’s an earthy citrus without being too heavy or masculine. I adore it, and I’m so picky about scents, as most of us probably are. I love the original Amazing Grace scent for something light and powdery, but this one is SO perfect for fall and winter. I sprayed it a couple of times too many during our photoshoot, and though I could smell it on myself for the afternoon, it wasn’t overwhelming and cloying. LOVE.
I wasn’t sure about this shot Posy wanted to snap…but…ok, I think it’s fun. And we try not to take ourselves too seriously around here, so here’s me on my cute bathmat with these products I love surrounding my head. What? You don’t do this in your own bathroom? To each their own. (See, Posy! I used the photo!)
