A philosophical approach to beauty

With instantly recognisable packaging, divine scents and a focus on combining skincare and bodycare with wellbeing, Philosophy has been a long-standing favourite here at QVC. But, if you’re new to the brand, you may well be thinking, “what is Philosophy?” Let’s break it down.

The brand

The idea for Philosophy was inspired by the landscape of the Arizonan wilds, an extreme environment where nature creates beautiful surroundings. The scientists behind Philosophy started to look at unlocking the secrets of nature to create high-power beauty formulas, and the brand was born. Combining effective ingredients with natural scents and beautiful textures, Philosophy aims to create products that make you feel great from the inside out.

Today, Philosophy’s range encompasses skincare, bodycare, fragrance and more, focusing on products that instill confidence and help boost your wellbeing. Taking beauty from your bathroom all the way into your day-to-day life, the brand’s philosophy is simple: hard-working formulas that leave you (and your skin) feeling tip top.

Our top Philosophy picks:

It’s hard, because in truth, we love it all. But, in the spirit of helping you shop, we’ve narrowed it down a bit!

Purity Three-in-One Cleanser

A must-have in our skincare routine, this cleanser works to melt away dirt, oil and make-up to leave your complexion feeling deeply cleansed, balanced and hydrated. It’s great for normal-to-dry skin types and can even remove eye make-up. Even better? We’re picking up our next bottle in this fab duo, featuring a limited edition cleanser too!

Amazing Grace Eau de Toilette

Okay, we need to be honest. We adore all of the fragrances in this range, but if we had to pick one holy grail, it’d be Amazing Grace. A feminine floral scent with notes of bergamot, muguet blossoms and musk – it’s beautifully subtle and will leave you smelling sweet all day.

Summer Shower Gel 

Even when the sun’s not out, we like to enrobe our bodies in beautiful holiday-fresh scents, and there’s no better way to do this than a richly-fragranced shower gel. Whether you opt for Honey & Cream, Orange Pineapple or Summer Tea Spritzer, you’ll feel like you’ve just stepped straight into the sunshine every time you get out the shower.

Amazing Grace Bergamot Layering Collection

A fragrant shower gel? Tick. A beautiful body lotion? Tick. Not one, but two bottles of fragrance? BIG TICK! This collection is definitely up there with our favourite beauty edits. Not only does it include the original Amazing Grace Eau de Toilette that we adore, you also get Shower Gel, Body Lotion and Eau de Toilette in the zesty-meets-floral Amazing Grace Bergamot. Get layering all those delicious notes for a full body fragrance experience!

Microdelivery Vitamin C Resurfacing Peel

Nothing makes you feel better than those days where your skin just looks radiant, and that’s why we love this two-step resurfacing peel. It reinvigorates your skin, leaving tired, dull complexions looking smoother with a healthy-looking glow. Plus, it’s enriched with all the good stuff, like vitamin C, salicylic acid and lactic acid.

Summer Skin Hope Collection

As the season’s change, our skincare needs to adjust to meet the new temperatures. Luckily, Philosophy have it all covered with this collection. With a Peeling Mask, Renewed Hope in a Jar Water Cream and Renewed Hope in a Jar Concentrate Dew, you’ll be able to work towards refreshed, glowing skin even as the weather heats up.

We know you’re probably as besotted with Philosophy as we are now, so head here to check out the rest of the range.
