Who doesn’t love a sweet treat during the holidays?

Philosophy’s The Cookie Exchange set ($24, philosophy.com, sephora.ca) includes cookie-inspired lotion, lip gloss and a shower gel/shampoo packaged up in a cute tin.

These treats are almost as delicious as the real thing – plus they come without the calories.

Sweet creamy frosting body lotion (60 ml)

A 200 ml tube of Sweet Creamy Frosting lotion. (Philosophy)

Application: I applied a dollop to hands, arms or any spot that needed some moisturizing. It left my skin feeling soft and smelling yummy.

Scent: The lotion reminds me of a tub of vanilla cake icing; it smells good enough to eat.

Durability: The scent would last a little while, but I did need to re-apply throughout the day.

Christmas Cookie shampoo, shower gel & bubble bath (120 ml)

Application: It lathered up really well with a loofah and created a tubful of bubbles.

Scent: When I opened the bottle it reminded me of opening a bag of vanilla wafer cookies – sweet and delicious.

Durability: The scent was faint after I washed the gel off, but it left my hair and skin soft.

Editor’s note: Philosophy’s adult-friendly scented bath products are made to be gorgeously smelly in the bath, but not stay on your skin all day.

Sugar Sprinkles Lip Shine

Philosophy’s High-Gloss High-Flavour Sugar Sprinkles Lip Shine. (Philosophy)

Application: The angled applicator made it easy to put on.

Colour: The gloss is clear with little pink sparkles in it – very festive.

Scent: It smells like sweet brown sugar with a hint of gingerbread.

Durability: I had to reapply the gloss throughout the day.

Removal: I usually didn’t have to remove it, since it wore off naturally. It will wipe off with a tissue, but a couple sparkles may stick around.

Would you gift it? I would definitely gift this set. The products smell great and leave your skin soft. I would probably get it for my sister, since she likes sweet-smelling products as much as I do.
