As an avid skin care user, frequent gift-giver, and lover of all things beauty, I’m a big fan of Philosophy products. From their slew of sweet-smelling multipurpose shower gels (that are always adorably packaged!) to their borderline miraculous moisturizers, cleansers, and treatments, Philosophy has gotten me out of many beauty binds, whether I’m shopping for someone else or for myself, or just dealing with a beauty emergency!
Now, just in time for summer and the harsh environmental stressors that typically come with the year’s warmest season, comes the newest addition to their skincare arsenal: Take a Deep Breath. The refreshing gel-cream formula is designed to be applied after facial cleansing to hydrate skin, protect against harsh environmental factors like sun and smog, and boost oxygen flow for natural radiance. Perfectly lightweight without skimping on moisture, this handy formula is perfect for layering under makeup and your favorite SPF without making you look or feel like your skin is suffocating. Skin feels refreshed and looks flawless, and your wallet is only $14 (.5oz) or $40 (2 oz) lighter – a small price to pay for protected, pretty summer skin!
