Rumoured to be a dupe for two legendary products, Philosophy’s 27 Wishes has lived in my hand bag for two weeks, so it’s time I gave you the run down.
In a nut shell, it’s a multipurpose balm that claims to address 27 beauty needs. Now, I do think some of it’s claims are stretching it a little far. One included on the box is “earlobes”. I’m not exactly sure what this is meant to do for earlobes and seeing as no one buys earlobe cream, I’m not letting them count that. I whittle the remaining 26 wishes down to those included in the photo below.
To me, it’s 15 products in one, which is still something to boast about I’d say.
The perfect size and flip lid make it just the right size for one handed, speedy use on the go. Straight from the tube, I liken it to the consistency of coconut oil but as soon as you’ve warmed it up, it melts. It’s surprisingly easily absorbed, especially in to parched feet – thank you Summer sandals. I found it pretty effective against fly aways and removing waterproof eyeliner that had gone a bit skewiff too.
The scent of this product is what you’d expect from something mainly made from botanicals. It’s fresh and a little herbal but because it’s used in such small quantities, it isn’t noticeable once it’s applied.
I’ve seen other bloggers compare it to Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream so it had a lot to live up to. To me though it’s pretty much identical to Virgin Vie’s Guardian Angel Balm, which had a home in my handbag for years. Since we said farewell to Virgin Vie, I’m glad to have found it’s twin.
I was gifted this product by QVC who have a huge range of Philosophy products if you want to treat yourself, but as always, this review was 100% honest brain juice from me.
If you’ve used 27 Wishes, I’d love to know what other uses you found for it.
