Philosophy Skincare Is Finally Coming To Singapore!


Calling out all fans of Philosophy skincare?

Yes, your long-awaiting brand will be arriving in Singapore soon! Thanks to Luxasia Singapore for bringing this fabulous brand here. And it is definitely a great news for those die-hard fans of Philosophy Skincare.

Philosophy Skincare will be officially launched at all Sephora outlets from 27th April 2012.

Singapore is the first to launch Philosophy Skincare brand in Asia market.

In February 2012, I was delighted to be invited to the Philosophy brand launch at The Art House. I was privileged to preview and patch test some of the much-acclaimed Philosophy best products such as the Microdelivery Peel and Turbo Booster C Powder.

The event began with a brand introduction speech presented by Marie-Laure Pons, Senior Vice President of Coty Prestige & Coty Beauty.

Followed by Robin White, Director of International Education & Global Press, introducing the range of Philosophy skincare products with local Dermatologist Dr Wong Soon Tee supporting dermatology questions.

Philosophy was founded in 1996 by Christina Carlino, an entrepreneur with 30 years of hand-on experience in wellness and beauty industry. Philosophy is the 4th biggest selling skincare brand in US and it was recently been bought over by Coty, a cosmetics brand primarily known for their fragrances. Philosophy is the latest addition to Coty Prestige division.

Philosophy‘s lifestyle branding statement “Believe in miracle” and its strong spiritual and belief approach that builds an emotional connection with the consumers, successfully capture consumers attention and leave a lasting impression. The brand positively brings beauty to the body and the mind.

Alike Benefit, Philosophy has also named almost all of their skincare products in an unique and interesting way such as Hope In A Jar, Here Comes The Sun, Keep The Peace, Purity Made Simple and When Hope Is Not Enough.

In fact, Oprah Winfrey has named Philosophy‘s star moisturizer, Hope In A Jar, as one of her favorite products. It was featured 6 times on her ’10 Best Things’ list and Philosophy subsequently featured Oprah’s image on a special edition jar which instantly became one of the brand’s biggest selling products.

Hope In A Jar, formulated with potent antioxidants and amino acids, comes in 3 different formulation to suit individual skin type for a optimal hydration and smoother complexion.

Hope In A Jar Oil-free Gel is a lightweight, oil-free gel moisturizer that is suitable for normal to oily skin. Hope In A Jar, the high-performance moisturizer, is an award-winning daily moisturizer for all skin types that helps reduce the appearance of dull skin, rough texture and dehydration. And Hope In A Jar For Dry Skin, an extra-rich moisturizer especially created for normal to dry skin, is a therapeutic moisturizer that helps relieve dryness and soothe irritated or sensitive skin.

Purity Made Simple 3-in-1 Cleanser For Face And Eyes is an award winning product that removes makeup, cleanses, tones and lightly hydrates the skin, all in one simple step. It has won 4 times the Allure reader’s choice award in the US. Formulated with 12 essential oils to help calm and soothe skin. It is claimed to be gently enough to be used around eye areas and on sensitive skin.

Microdelivery Peel is proud to be the very first in-home peel created for the retail market. It is a 2-step in-home vitamin C/Peptide Peel that helps to resurface and replenish the skin for a smoother and radiant skin. Formulated with peptides and vitamin C to rejuvenate the appearance of sun-damaged, hyperpigmented and aging skin.

Turbo Booster C Powder is an amazing product that contains 99.8% high-potency topical Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) powder that helps prevent premature aging by acting as an antioxidant and supporting natural collagen, helping to improve skin’s overall tone. It can either be used alone or mixed with any of your favorite water-based serum or moisturizer to instantly convert them into a state-of-the-art vitamin C formula.

Miracle Worker Dark Spot Correcting System, under Philosophy‘s anti-aging range, is claimed to be the #1 professional protocol for addressing dark spots. This miracle pair, a skin brightener and retinoid, is designed to reduce the appearance of skin discoloration, age spots, post-acne scarring and sun damage. It also helps to even and brighten skin tone to reveal a more uniform complexion.

Miracle Worker Miraculous All-over Brightener & Dark Spot Corrector can be purchased separately.

When using the Miracle Worker Miraculous Anti-aging Retinoid Pads for the first time, you will need to pour the entire 2-ounce elixir over the 60 single-use pads. The skin-restoring elixir is formulated with next-generation HPR technology that boosts the surface-cell turnover rate without causing irritation. Loaded with antioxidants, skin conditioners, and soothing agents, this multitasking blend delivers results that can be seen within one week. It is claimed to help diminishes the appearance of wrinkles, improves skin discoloration and promotes flawless clarity.

Miracle Worker Miraculous Anti-aging Moisturizer, the only moisturizer under Miracle Worker range, helps replenish skin’s nature moisture barrier for a firm, radiant skin.

During the event, we also got to preview a wide range of Philosophy’s Bath & Shower Gels that are great for gift-giving. Indulge in the refreshing scents of Raspberry Sorbet, Vanilla Birthday Cake, Melon Daiquiri, Coconut Frosting and many more.

Surprise your loved ones with these one-of-a-kind gift assortments. The packaging are so lovely, don’t you think so?

The founder of Philosophy, Christina Carlino, who has been sensitive to fragrance all her life, decided to create her own fragrance that is clean and approachable. Amazing Grace, Pure Grace, Eternal Grace and Inner Grace are created to appeal to individual scent preference.

Upon the event, I was presented with a Philosophy goodie bag that contains Purity Made Simple and Amazing Grace. Thanks Philosophy!

The price range for all Philosophy products have not been finalized and we were told that the products will likely be reasonably priced and may be comparable to Kiehl’s products.

Philosophy Skincare will be officially launched at all Sephora outlets from 27th April 2012. Singapore is the first to launch Philosophy Skincare brand in Asia market. Philosophy Skincare has planned to launch the brand to other parts of Asia in the next 6 to 12 months.

I’m so glad it has finally arrived in Singapore. I’m actually keen to purchase the Turbo Booster C Powder but my decision will depend on the retail pricing though. Hope it will not be too steep. Cross my fingers! ;-)
