New From Philosophy - Blackberry Blossom & Christmas Gift Sets

Tuesday, September 07, 2010

Philosophy are well known for their heavenly smelling 3-in-1 shampoo, body wash and bubble bath scents and the latest addition comes in the form of Blackberry Blossom. Philosophy have captured the essence of fresh, fragrant wild blackberries and infused them into both into a 3-in-1 formula and matching body lotion.

As with past Philosophy 3-in-1's that I've purchased, I only use them as a body wash or in the bath so can't comment on their suitability as a shampoo. Blackberry Blossom has a light scent, lathers well and doesn't leave my skin feeling dry. The blackberry scent lingers for a short while on my skin before fading away when I step out of the shower, but it's the aroma that builds up in the shower which helps to jump-start my day that I'm bothered about, not how long it lasts on my skin as I'm not using it for a lasting body fragrance.

The body lotion, I found a bit too lightweight for my liking but then I'm extremely fussy when it comes to body lotions. It contains shea butter and those of you who don't need such a heavy duty moisturiser I'm sure will like the light formula. It didn't do much for me personally though and I didn't find it very moisturising to be honest.


Since you're here, you may as well cast your eyes over the luscious looking body treats Philosophy have in store for us this Christmas. They have some lovely gift sets complete with delicious scents that will have you gnawing at your arm as opposed to washing it.


Mmmm gingerbread and sugary cinnamon icing body washes in the shower? Yes please! Check out the 'Under the Mistletoe' lipgloss set aimed to leave you with gorgeous, kissable lips too.

What are your favourite Philosophy shower scents?

The blackberry blossom range sounds lovely. I have Cinnamon Buns which smells so gorgeous although I prefer it for night time showers/bubble baths as it's such a warm, comforting scent. x

This may be a stupid question but where do i buy Philosophy in the UK? Im tempted by the body wash x

Jo said...

mm I love blackberries, so a perfect one for me especially at this time of the year. Same as you I just like the experience of the fragrance in the shower, I am greedy to try lots of fragrances, so look for it in my perfume and body lotion.

I love me some Philosophy and I have my eye on this blackberry one. I never go for the lotions as nothing beats Johnson's baby lotion in my eyes :-) I can tell already I'm going to love the gingery, cinnamony one for Christmas.

Oh, blackberry is not my favourite. Do they have other smells? Strawberry? Cocos?
