Who doesn't look forward to Christmas? Except for the crazy holiday rush and the heavy traffic, I think most of us is already feeling the spirit of Christmas with the non-stop playing of Christmas carols in the malls to the intricate Chirstmas decors on the streets.

And of course, for us shoppers, Christmas means holiday gift sets and limited edition holiday offers from our favorite brands! Last week, skincare brand Philosophy invited beauty bloggers to experience Christmas at The Lobby of Manila Peninsula.

Here are their irresistible holiday treats for us this year:

These will definitely put you in festive spirits as you lather from head to toe!

Almond Glazed 
This 3-in-1 shampoo, shower gel & bubble bath has the nutty richness of almonds blended with a hint of warm sugar. It's like having dessert while in the shower with this moisturizing, multi-tasking, foaming lather!

Christmas Cookie

Another 3-in-1 shampoo, shower gel & bubble bath variant, the Christmas Cookie reminds me of my baking sessions during my teenage years. Indulge in this yummy and delicious scent featuring a moisturising  formula with a rich, foaming lather that gently cleanses and conditions, leaving skin and hair feeling soft.
