HOT DEAL: New Gilt City Vouchers for Philosophy and Sugarfina (Plus: A Bonus Sugarfina Review)

Thanks so much to reader Anely for the hot tip about this one!

There's a new Philosophy offer on Gilt City HERE, which gets you $30 off your $65 purchase on the Philosophy website HERE. For this voucher, you pay nothing on the Gilt City site. You "RSVP" and within 30 minutes or so (that's usually how long it takes for me), you'll receive a voucher code via email to use on the Philosophy site to get your discount. I believe that free shipping (free on orders $50+) is calculated BEFORE you use your voucher, which is awesome. But I will test that out and update this post once I get my voucher in my email and let you know. UPDATE: I just received my voucher and tested it out. I added exactly $65 worth of product to my cart (1 Purity 32 oz. for $55 and 2 Amazing Grace 2 oz. body washes for $10) and I WAS charged shipping after I applied to voucher. My cart indicated that I was $15 away from free shipping, since my total after the voucher was $35 (for $65 worth of product). So you DO have to orders at least $50 worth of merchandise AFTER the voucher discount to receive free shipping. I hope that helps!

My recent Sugarfina order

 Sugarfina Ice Cream Cones

If you've ever shopped at Sugarfina before, then you know that their prices are quite high for candy but in my opinion, it's SO worth it to either give these as a gift, or treat yourself to something quite special. Above are some pics that I shared on Instagram of my recent Sugarfina order. I decided to place an order after I received some Sugarfina gummies as a gift and I just HAD to have more (I'm so bummed I didn't have this voucher at the time, but now I'm plotting another order. Sigh...). I let Mr. G pick three candies, and I picked three candies. Here's a quick list of my thoughts about each one I purchased, in case you're looking for some ideas:

 (Click a link below to go directly to the item listing)
  • Blood Orange Fruittini (Mr. G's pick) - imported from Italy, these are actually made with blood oranges and they are soft gummies and very sweet. They taste exactly like very ripe blood oranges--sweet but not too tart.
  • Wild Blueberry Fruttini (Mr. G's pick) - imported from Italy, these are made with wild blueberries and they are soft gummies and very sweet. The flavor is rich (they're bursting with blueberry flavor) and they're my, and Mr. G's, favorite of the two Fruittinis we purchased.
  • #1 Swedish Fish (Mr. G's pick) - these are not those red imitations you can buy at the drugstore. These are authentic Swedish Fish imported from Sweden and they're nothing like the drugstore versions found easily here in the US. They're very soft, not too sweet, and Mr. G loves them (he's a bit of a Swedish Fish addict). 
  • Sugar Lips (my pick) - GET THEM. That's all I have to say! If you like sour gummies, which are my favorite, these are quite possibly the best I have ever tasted. These are so soft, so sour, and you get watermelon, bubble gum, and strawberry flavors all in the same box. This is the candy I received as a gift that prompted my entire order. I HAD to have more of these. They're like crack, I tell you.
  • Bubbly Bears (my pick) - imported from Germany and made with Dom PĂ©rignon Vintage Champagne (fancy!), I love anything champagne-infused and these certainly didn't disappoint. They're not quite as soft as the Sugar Lips--they're a bit more "chewy" than that, but the flavor is so bright and effervescent and fun. I adore them.
  • Ice Cream Cones (my pick) - imported from Germany, this was a last minute choice on my part and sometimes those last minute picks end up being the best thing EVER. I mentioned on my Instagram that these are the best gummies I have ever eaten, and I mean it. They are the most soft, delicate little pillows--I'm telling you, they're softer than any other gummy I have ever eaten. And the flavor is so creamy! They really do taste like vanilla, strawberry, and raspberry ice cream, but you also taste the ice cream cone! If you can only get one thing from Sugarfina, I think it should be these (or the Sugar Lips, if you prefer your gummies on the sour side). 

Thanks again, Anely, for the great tip!


  1. Hey, just wanted to let you know that the Stardust by Vegas Nay palette is available again on the Too Faced site. Found it by browsing. I love your blog, keep up the good work!

  2. After seeing your Instagram post with those yummy gummy ice cream cones, I was planning to place an order very soon ... but now with the Gilt City offer I think I definitely have to! I'm finding every year I indulge myself more and more during my birthday month, so this is perfect timing. I deserve it, dang it! I'll get something for my mom for Mothers Day, too, then I won't feel so spoiled ;)

  3. I went to a Yelp elite event and we got a bunch of stuff from Sugarfina. The store was so cute too.

  4. Perfect Mother's Day gift for my mother-in-law, who has a major sweet tooth! I purchased the voucher but it's not accepting it on Sugarfina..I just sent Sugarfina a customer service ticket so hopefully I'll get it figured out before Mother's Day.

    1. I am having the same problem, did you get any replies or help?
