Philosophy Soap Review

If you're wondering what happened to Stylish Sunday's this week, well it fell to the wayside. We got busy and while the photos got taken they didn't get edited in time. Things will be back to normal next week and I should have a haul up either tomorrow or Thursday.  Until then Review Time!

I recently bought Philosophy's Love Sweet Love 3-in-1 Shampoo, Bath and Shower Gel, and I thought while I had the time I'd dash off my thoughts about it for you.
From Philosophy's website: "love sweet love shampoo, bath & shower gel is a 3-in-1 multitasking formula that gently cleanses, conditions and softens skin and hair. infused  with sparkling pink grapefruit with its flirtatious effervescence, juicy  mango essence to inspire a lively happiness and irresistibly warm, comforting vanilla to wrap you in love and feel smitten and irresistibly pretty."

I really love this soap. It's perfectly and fresh and even though it's very citrus-y which I  normally reserve for summer, I completely love it. Plus who doesn't love love? I don't pick up any Vanilla but that's okay because I'm sort of all Vanilla'd out. The Grapefruit and Mango really do feel summery to me, which I don't mind, but next spring I think I'll go for one of the 3-in-1's from their Field of Flowers line.

As a Shower Gel I adore it, it lathers well and a little bit goes a long way. Same goes for as a Bubble Bath, even though I almost never do that. I don't love it as a Shampoo, but that's because I'm super picky about my Shampoo's since I have a super sensitive scalp. I do love that if I get it in my hair while taking a bubble bath I don't feel like I have to completely rewash my hair like I do with most bubble baths. 

If you haven't tried any of the Philosophy 3-in-1 washes I definitely recommend them. I have super sensitive skin and I have a friend who has crazy dry skin and while we have different scent preferences (her favorite is the senorita margarita scent) we both pretty much swear by these body washes.

I'm pretty sure these are my Holy Grail washes. I've tried so many other brands, but I've never repurchased any of them. I've personally repurchased the Philosophy body washes many times. I adore their packaging, how simple it is. It just feels very kinda old fashioned and crisp to me. And I really love how they put recipes on their food scented washes. I've yet to try any of them but I do copy them down for future reference. 

I'm also a pretty big fan of their skincare range, which I used for a while when my acne was really bad. It didn't make it go away, but it was definitely soothing, which was amazing because my face was incredibly sore then. And I still use their Purity Made Simple wash when I deep clean my makeup brushes.

Have you ever tried any of the Philosophy range before? I'm thinking of buying one of their fragrances, are they worth it?
