What’s your Philosophy?

Well Hello and Welcome to my First Blog Post!

Today I’m going to share my thoughts on a brand I’m quite new to…Philosophy Skincare.

So lets start with their Triple Acid Brightening Peel Pads.

Acid Peel Pads

I bought this from John Lewis for £59.50 which is a bit pricey, works out as £4.96 per pad which isn’t so bad when you break it down.

The main thing that appealed to me with this product was its ease of use. Simply wipe over a clean dry face, easy! I love a simple product, no mixing, waiting 10 mins, washing and then reapplying something else. I like simple and effective, which this is!

Once applied my skin tingled a little and went pink, but that’s to be expected when you wipe with an acid pad! The tingling died down after a few minutes as did the pink face.

Moisturiser can be applied afterwards if needed but as I have oily skin I quite liked it being dry for a change. As I applied over night,(which I think is the best time to apply it gives your skin a chance to breathe and recover), I noticed a difference the next morning. My skin was a little brighter and a lot less oily.

I use this product over a number of weeks, sometimes twice a week (rebel I know!) and I really liked it, gave my skin that lil pick me up it needed. The tingling died down after a few uses as did the pink face.

Thumbs up from me, although I wouldn’t recommend to people with sensitive skin, with it being covered in acid…can’t see that being a good thing for your skin. But if you skin is tough as old boots like mine then crack on I say!


Looking forward to trying some more Philosophy products in the future, recommendations greatly appreciated!

About Me and the Blog

Well hello and welcome to my shiny new blog!

A little bit about me…..So I’m a married 30 Something woman, living London and very much enjoying life at the moment.

Apart from one thing,  I am terrified of getting old or any signs of ageing.

This is where the blog comes in, this is a treat from me to you.

I am on a mission to find the best skin care and anti ageing products as I do not fancy falling victim to Botox and a freeze Face!

So if you have the same fear as me..Phew I thought I was only one 🙂

I promise to give you an honest review of products I have either bought or been asked to feature as no one wants to waste their time or money as stuff that doesn’t work.
