I’ve actually had these Philosophy shower gels sitting in my ‘new stuff’ shelf for months because I’m finding it impossible to be torn away from Elemis shower cream.
Although I am a fan of Philosophy, I wasn’t sure about if these shower gels would just be like bog standard shower gel put into a pretty bottle. A few other brands have ripped off Philosophy in terms of packaging and product so I guess it’s a bit ironic that their products now remind me of their competitors first!
I was given two to try, Tantalizing Tangerine and Luscious Lime:
These come in huge 480ml bottles – they are also 3 in 1 which is a pretty cool idea and because the scent is lime and tangerine, it’s unisex too. I have to say when Mr C uses my girly products I find it disconcerting – he smells like girl.By 3 in 1, I mean a shower gel, bubble bath and shampoo. Now I tried shampooing with this – not for me, my hair is dry and knotty as it is but for Mr C or someone with shorter, oilier hair, it’s great.
As a bubble bath and shower gel it’s great too. It really does smell fruity and not in a fake overbearing way. I was also surprised how nice it left my skin feeling – my skin feels stripped quite easily and I can say these really don’t do that despite being so foamy.
I guess these are my current favourite zesty and foamy shower gels. I usually use creamier products but since these don’t strict my skin I’ll rotate which product I use depending on my mood!
Any downsides…well nothing really other than I am struggling to find a stockist in the UK! If anyone knows where people can buy these shower gels let us know in the comments!
You can buy Philosophy on QVC.
