Philosopy’s new Glasgow counter

I was thrilled to open a gorgeous package of Philosophy hero products this week to celebrate the launch of their new counter in Debenhams in Glasgow, which opened yesterday, and looks something like the picture on the left!

Philosophy was founded in 1996 by Cristina Carino, a skin care entrepreneur and visionary with over 30 years experience working with leading dermatologists. The brand is fun and functional. The bath products are adorable, and the bottles were just meant for reading in the shower! I lost track of the brand for a while, as it seemed to move in and out of UK stores, but it’s back to stay, bigger and better!

The new counter will offer all of the brand’s hero, new and favourite products from skincare, to bath and body, to fragrance and gift sets. The top selling products are the hope in a jar moisturiser (£34), purity (various formats, from £17.50), the busy woman’s cleanser, amazing grace (£32) a floral, feminine fragrance that is really beautiful (although my absolute favorite ever is baby grace, which I don’t think they even do any more!), and of course those scrumptious shampoo, shower gel & bubble baths (£14) in almost edible fragrances like vanilla birthday cake, melon daiquiri, coconut frosting and more.

It will also offer the philosophy peel bar (in Glasgow until the end of July this year) where customers can experience the microdelivery peel. Pop in on your lunch break, or on a shopping trip for a quick demonstration of this gentle exfoliation.
