Did you know that many of the images on Philosophy packaging are of the actual members of the company and their families? It gives such a special touch. Such is the case with Have a Cherry Christmas ($18), which includes the brand’s famed 3-in-1 and a high-flavor lip shine.
You’ll certainly feel all sorts of toasty warm with Warm and Toasty ($25) — a set of three absolutely delectable 3-in-1s including Hazelnut Espresso, Hot Buttered Rum and Double Rich Hot Cocoa.
Mmmm, marshmallows. They always make us think of S’mores — especially in this Melting Marshmallow set ($22). Delight in a 3-in-1, body lotion and high-flavor lip shine scented with the delicious aroma of gooey, melt-in-your-mouth marshmallows.
We’re dreaming of … waking up and finding this adorable set under the tree! (Yes, we know this post is about what to buy for others, but this one is especially for us.) The 3-piece I’m Dreaming Of… Set ($25) includes 3-in-1s scented with fruity white pear, white peach and white cranberry. Yum.
All gift sets are available at philosophy.com.
For starters, we love the unique shape of this balm. The oversized sphere garners comments every time we pull it out of our bag — and, truth be told, we love when people notice our beauty products. We’ve honestly never seen another lip balm that looks like this, which means it immediately skyrocketed in our esteem.
Add to that the fact that the balm really and truly works … and we’ve got a gem on our hands! (Or lips, as the case may be.) It’s packed with antioxidants, zinc, shea butter, jojoba oil, and Vitamins C and E to moisturize, condition and nourish lips from morning until night. It even helps to prevent bacterial contamination, relieves cold sores and reduces chapping on your pretty little pout!
The delicious tangerine taste really leaves, well, a good taste in our mouths. And at under five bucks a pop? You can’t go wrong!
The eos Medicated Tangerine Lip Balm Smooth Sphere retails for $3.49 at drugstore.com.
