Philosophy Field of Flowers: Field of (Freesia) Dreams

Published in: Product Reviews, Skin Care

philosophy-field-of-flowers
A wee random sampling of goals from my bucket list:

  • Have a massive balloon drop from the ceiling, like at the end of David Bowie’s Modern Love video
  • Achieve total and complete self-awareness (not likely, but a girl can dream)
  • Twirl through a field of blooming freesia (assuming my allergy meds are working, of course).

Thanks to Philosophy Field of Flowers Perfumed Shower Gel ($16) and Ultra-Rich Body Lotion ($24), I can *almost* cross that third one off my list.

Why freesia? It’s one of my favorite flowers — so hopeful, innocent and optimistic.

Both the frothy shower gel and the rich body lotion leave a lovely scent that lingers on my skin for hours. They smell exactly (aren’t the bottles adorable?) the way I imagine that field would smell, like a mix of springtime dew and sunshine as far as the eye can see. :)

Unfortunately, both products are a little more expensive than I’d like, but the scent — oh, the scent. It’s intoxicating! Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: B+

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

    This is so tantalising but Philosophy is very overpriced in Australia!

    Maybe I’ll have a sniff when this comes out over here.

      Hi Mish,

      LOL, whatever it is I hope it doesn’t involve doing yoga in a hot room (long story).

      That’s Tabs, btw. He’s the cat that turned me into a crazy cat lady.

      Hi Marce,

      How lovely! I bet they smell so good when they’re in full bloom. Are you an avid gardener? I’ve only grown tomatoes and houseplants, but I enjoy it.
