Philosophy Hosts Series of Makeover Events To Help Mothers & Daughters Look their Most Beautiful this Fall

WHAT: Whether you’re 15 or 50, the key to looking your best is having flawless skin. philosophy is hosting “supernatural saturdays,” a series of special events for mothers and daughters to receive personalized makeup consultations and applications, as well as teen-tested and mom-approved tips for applying makeup the right way and accentuating your best features. John Trau, philosophy’s expert makeup artist, will be on-hand to offer tips on how to introduce teens to makeup and play up their natural beauty – without looking too made up.

Anyone who receives a makeup application will be able to create their own supernatural video in a customized supernatural video booth and email it to five of their closest friends or family members. In addition, receive a FREE 4oz award winning Purity Made Simple cleanser with the purchase of any two supernatural philosophy products, and a FREE “be supernatural” philosophy cosmetic bag with any $100 philosophy purchase.

AND – if you can’t make it to one of the three supernatural Saturday events, visit your local Nordstrom counter to enter for a chance to win a private supernatural makeup party with five friends at the Nordstrom store in your neighborhood, which includes a private skincare and makeup consultation, personalized makeup tips and custom makeup applications for the group.

Philosophy When Hope is Not Enough Hydrating Body Scrub Review

Philosophy When Hope is Not Enough Hydrating Body Scrub ($30.00 for 8 oz.) is a gentle, mild exfoliator for body that’s easily used in the shower.  Though many of us can use coarser scrubs like sea salt, some people find those too harsh either from personal preference or their skin just doesn’t take kindly to it.  Enter Philosophy’s When Hope is Not Enough Hydrating Body Scrub!  (They really need an acronym for this — WHNE, anyone?)

Philosophy Kiss Me Tonight Intense Lip Therapy Review

I like it because it does soften my lips and keeps them hydrated for several hours at a time. I find I don’t have to reapply lip balm quite as often when I’m using this. It sits well on the lips, as it doesn’t just absorb right away. It’s also non-sticky and doesn’t feel thick like Vaseline either.

Philosophy When Hope is Not Enough Replenishing Body Lotion Review

Philosophy When Hope is Not Enough Replenishing Body Lotion ($35.00 for 8 oz.) is a lightly scented hydrating body moisturizer.  I find it hard to describe the scent beyond light, softly sweet, and that it disappears within an hour.  The lotion itself is light to medium in texture–definitely not a heavy cream–and applies evenly.  It sinks in within five minutes, and there’s no sticky residue left behind, which is a huge plus for me.  The lotion kept my legs and arms moisturized and smooth all day long, and it really helped my scaly legs look more like glam gams in just two days of repeated use (just ’cause my legs can be really dry).

Philosophy Unconditional Love Firming Body Emulsion Review

Philosophy Unconditional Love Firming Body Emulsion (16 oz. for $34) is a ridiculously well-hydrating moisturizer for your body with the same, blackberry ‘n vanilla sweetness as Unconditional Love Eau de Toilette I wrote about earlier. Again, despite being a rather sweet and fruity scent (with a good dose of warm vanilla), it’s not cloying or overly sweet. It also doesn’t turn once it’s applied to skin.
