A Beauty Philosophy

In beauty, I never forget to look at a brand's philosophy. There, I see the rationale and goals behind products, technologies and innovations and that way I truly know what I'm consuming. I also get to know how sincere the brand is and how you two can be connected.

Back in college, I was so intrigued by a brand who puts in its packaging its way of life: beauty beliefs, goals and aspirations. I like those kinds of products actually. It's direct and honest, with details about ingredients and how they're produced.

Philosophy redefines beauty under the overarching theme that everyone is beautiful, and to be a super model all you really need to be is a super person. we celebrate the idea that there is only one of you in this world and that you must honor your existence.

Our award-winning skin care, beautifully clean fragrances, indulgent bath & body products and joyous gifts are designed to help you feel and look your best.
we believe the best cosmetic is great looking skin
we believe fragrance should smell good and make you feel good
we believe showering should be multi-sensory
we believe it's better to give than receive

philosophy is devoted to caring for your skin. we offer some of the finest, most well-respected, innovative skin care available today. and as advanced skin care experts, our revolutionary formulas address multiple skin concerns in order to help you achieve a radiant, healthy-looking complexion.

Working closely with dermatologists and scientists means that philosophy skin care offers revolutionary ingredients, breakthrough formulas and advanced technology. it is designed to not only deliver dramatic results but to enhance the integrity of your skin. best of all, our formulas work together in harmony, for optimal benefit to you

So I bought my first Philosophy product which is a Raspberry Body Wash and ever since, I fell in love with its skin care capabilities and ability to make you smile while bathing because of its multi-sensory experience.

Now, Philosophy is back in the Philippines at the SM Megamall Fashion Hall with a more aggressive move, establishing its own boutiques. With it is its heritage for 30 years by its founder Cristina Carlino who wanted to bridge the gap between medical and consumer and a science that is backed up by doctors and dermatologists. One of the best discoveries I had during the launch was the home peeling kits especially the Microdermabrasion line. Reviews soon of my favorite Philosophy products!

For now, check out the launch photos and some amazing product shots featuring philosophies behind the brand, Philosophy.
