Philosophy Haunted House Gift Set Review

Is it me or is Halloween thee best holiday evers? Halloween for me is what Christmas must be to the rest of the population! I simply adore it!

It's not everyday I run across many products in the cosmetic world that have a Halloween theme! So, of course, I'm super excited about the Philosophy Haunted House Gift Set which includes three great shower gels!

I'm possibly the only one that totally digs the cute little skeleton hand creeping up from the dirt! Ahh so cute and creepy!

When I opened the box it was like pure childhood! All the smells combined created this spicy, warm Fall scent that really put me in the mood for the colder weather ahead!

The Muse likey! Halloween, shower gels, cute packaging...yup, I feel a Muse Approval coming on here!

In honor of Philosophy uber cute Haunted House Gift Set I did a short little MuseTV video for you guys! Excited? Me too!

MuseTV Presents: Philosophy Haunted House Review

The kit includes three, 3-1 shower gels in various Halloween and Fall themed scents. You'll get Pumpkin Spice, Black Licorice, and Caramel Apple. Philosophy has gotten particularly better as of late with the scents of it's newer shower gels and I'm particularly pleased with these three. Pumpkin Spice combines that warm, spicy pumpkin scent that makes you feel all cozy inside, Black Licorice is spot on and my favorite of the bunch, and Caramel Apple is a beautiful cocktail of sugary caramel and tart apple! My stomach is growling already! I may tip the bottle into my mouth at this point.

I've reviewed Philosophy Shower Gels prior to this but I will remind you that they are brilliant multitaskers which allow you to use them as a shower gel, shampoo, and a bubble bath too! They sud up wonderfully well and offer a guilt free shower experience minus the calories of actually eating all those Halloween treats!

Philosophy Haunted House is available now at do have a visit and don't forget that these come in full size too if your sweet tooth happens to be extra big you might want to indulge in the 16 oz versions!

Check out the What's New section and spot the matching lip shines and the new Cookie Exchange Gift Set! That one is screaming to the Muse, "buy me! buy me!".

The Muse loves Philosophy Haunted House Gift Set and highly recommends nabbing one before it's too late!

Muse Approval for this set!

Boo to you from the Muse and Happy Early Halloween!

Love Philosophy 3-1 Shower Gels?

Which are your favorite?

Loving the new Haunted House gift set?

I think the Caramel and Pumpkin sound awesome! I hate Black Licorice though. So cute though!

Ooooh reminds me! You should peek at Meow Cosmetic's Fall Eye shadow release and let me know what you think. I think some of the colors look fab. (Caterwaul, Bad Girl, Sabertooth, Claws-trophobic, Huntress, Heavy Petting, Tongue Tied, Swanky, Sexy)

hey dd!

I love that they went darker for fall..many companies haven't really touched on good dark, shades this year and I was enjoying a majority of the shades in the collection!

Witty Kitty and Cat and Mouse particularly caught my eye and also I like all the glow powder blushes :)

might have to grab some for review!

Heavy Petting
Tongue Tied
Sexy Carnivore
Roswell & Prissy (from Scandal Eyes)
Illuminate blush

You should definitely pick up some samples to try out. I would love to see a review!

I'm thinking of pairing, if they swatch and look good together on my skin:
Caterwaul and Swanky
Heavy Petting and Huntress
Heavy Petting and Tongue Tied
Sabertooth and Clawstrophobic
Bad Girl and Witty Kitty
Carnivoire and Claws&Effect
Carnivoire and Pet-ulent

Speaking of Halloween, did you happen to get any of the BPAL halloweenies this year? I know that you're into BPAL so I thought I would ask! :)
I joined a decant circle on lj, and should be receiving mine soon! I can't wait.
