Skin type: Dry sensitive skin.
Today, I will be reviewing Philosophy Raspberries and Cream Shower Gel. It is a great multi- tasker because it can be used as a bubble bath, shower gel and as a shampoo too. I have used the Apricots and Cream from the same range and loved it for to its multi-usability. This one has a very gourmet fragrance and makes me hungry when I use it. So, let’s get into the review.
Price and Quantity: $14.99 for 180 ml.
A berry sweet treat for skin. This raspberries and cream duo invigorates your senses with a deliciously fresh scent. The 3-in-1 shower gel generates a moisturizing lather that gently cleanses and conditions skin and hair. The lightweight, extra-fluffy body lotion hydrates, softens, and soothes dry skin with multiple moisturizing agents–including shea butter and aloe–leaving skin feeling silky smooth. From philosophy.

My Experience with Philosophy Raspberries and Cream Shower Gel:
The product comes in a plastic bottle with a flip open top and it had a protective foil seal which I had to tear before using the product. There are product details printed on the bottle which comes in handy. I have travelled with this one quite a bit because I don’t need to carry multiple products to pamper myself but the liquid leaks all the time and it’s a big design flaw.
Philosophy is a reputed brand in personal care products with a whole range of fragrances and textures; I assumed it to be a natural brand but it’s not so. It’s a prestige brand and that is why discounts never apply to them unless until it is retailed by the manufacturer itself. I have had good experience with the previous bottle so I bought another one in a different fragrance.
I use it mostly as a shower gel and sometimes as a bubble bath as it relaxes my tired body and mind. When I used this as a shampoo, it cleansed my scalp and hair really well but, it made my hair drier. The fragrance stays on the skin for an hour or so and fades away gradually. The packaging is not that good because every time I took it for travel, it leaked out. It’s a great product for all the in shower uses but you have to reach out for the lotion as soon as you step out because it’s fairly drying.
Pros of Philosophy Raspberries and Cream Shower Gel:
- Nice fragrance.
- Can be used as a shower gel, bubble bath and shampoo.
- Cleans well.
Cons of Philosophy Raspberries and Cream Shower Gel:
- List of ingredients.
- Flawed cap.
IMBB Rating: 3/5
