If you are still searching for a Valentine’s gift for yourself or someone special, treat them (or yourself!) to this gift that’s straight from the heart. philosophy my heart to yours gift set has a scent that is inspired by the sweetest moments in life with a sweet citrus and vanilla fragrance. The gift set includes a 4 oz bottle of combo shampoo/shower gel/bubble bath, a 2 oz body lotion, and a delicious tube of lip shine.

MyHeartToYours-SGThis adorable gift set comes in a pretty pink package that I could not wait to open. I was curious about the “sweet citrus and vanilla” fragrance – I don’t think I’ve ever smelled citrus and vanilla together! What a delicious surprise… the fragrance is best described as a sweet cupcake scent (like a sugary vanilla cupcake) with the slightest hint of citrus. I found the citrus element to be very faint, but provide somewhat of a refreshing quality to the overall scent. Very yummy!

philosophy_MyHearttoYours

The lipgloss appears bright pink but applies clear, and has the same delicious scent, without any flavour (which is nice). It’s quite thick and will leave a gorgeous, high shine on your lips without being sticky.

The shampoo/shower/bath gel is a nice multi-use product, but I personally am very specific about hair care so loved it as a bath and shower gel. It left behind a nice amount of bubbles in the bath, with the same delicious scent. The scent doesn’t linger strongly on your skin, but you will get that from the body lotion!

And finally, the my heart to yours body lotion is a quick-absorbing, relatively light moisturizer perfect for finishing up your routine. I found the scent to be strongest in the lotion, lingering long after you have applied it. It also ends up ‘layering’ the scent if you use both the shower gel and lotion, perfect for making it last…

With the shampoo/shower/bath gel and body lotion available in full size bottles, you can certainly indulge long after this gift set has enveloped you in its sweetness!

philosophy_MyHearttoYours2

The philosophy my heart to yours gift set, $29, is available at Sephora, The Hudson’s Bay & Shopper’s Drug Mart.

Full size philosophy my heart to yours body lotion, 210ml, $21, and  shampoo, shower gel & bubble bath, 480ml, $21, available at Sephora & The Hudson’s Bay.

Being the product junkie that I am, I try a lot of new products. A LOT. And how do I know when a new shower or hair product is amazing?

Well… it mysteriously disappears from my shower.

And I can’t use it when I’m in there…

Until I go for a walk… over to the hubby’s shower…

And that’s exactly what happened with Dial’s new Triple Moisture Ultra Moisturizing Body Wash! It “walked” away. Straight into the hubby’s shower!!

Ok. I can’t blame him. It. Smells. Amazing. Envelops the entire shower with the delicious scent. And feels even better on your skin… luxurious, soft, moisturizing…

Here is some info on this brand-new product:

Delivering the effectiveness we crave, this creamy formula is a must-have for every shower. Featuring an astounding 3X more moisture than regular Dial® clear body washes, the rich blend wraps you in a blanket of moisture leaving skin luxuriously softer after each wash!

But it doesn’t stop there – in addition to lavish ingredients known for their naturally soothing benefits, NEW Dial® Triple Moisture Body Wash has a scent that will warm your senses, leaving skin as nice to sniff as is it silky-smooth.

What makes this product so amazing? Three rich body butters that are beloved for their skin drenching properties are actually built right into this creamy, luscious body wash. Dial® Triple Moisture body wash contains the following 3 moisturizing butters:

  • Shea Butter
  • Jojoba Butter
  • Mango Butter

To top it off? Dial® Triple Moisture Body Wash has just won U.S. Product of the Year Award! Over 50,000 consumers in the U.S. voted, and the super moisturizing benefits and fresh scent of Dial® Triple Moisture made it come out on top of any other body wash!
