Review: Philosophy Gingerbread Man / Gingerbread Girl Shampoo, Shower Gel and Bubble Bath

This is a review for the Philosophy Gingerbread Man and Gingerbread Girl Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath (or 3-in-1). I bought this product in Hawaii last year and had forgotten to post the review!

Gingerbread Man
Gingerbread Girl

What it does: (from Sephora.com)

A multitasking Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath infused with the refreshing scent of ginger spice. This luscious, lathering gel sweetens any day with its extra rich and creamy formula that gently cleanses and conditions, leaving skin and hair feeling ultra soft.

Price: A full sized bottle of Philosophy’s 3-in-1 is $16 for 16 oz (480ml). In this set, each bottle was 8 oz (240 ml), and the set was $20 for the 2 bottles.   A full sized bottle is a good value for money, but I personally think that 480 ml is much too big to use without getting bored!

Scent: Both products smell like ginger.  Gingerbread Man smells like Ginger with Lemon added, and reminds me strongly of lemon iced tea.  Gingerbread Girl smells sweeter. 

Pros:

  • Foams well, and cleans well without stripping my body of moisture
  • I really enjoyed both scents
  • Gingerbread Girl does not leave obvious glitter on my body

Cons:

  • This was my first Philosophy 3-in-1, and I found the product to be very runny, unlike Bath & Body Works’ shower gels. Be careful when you pour out the product.

Notes: Although this can be used as a shower gel, bubble bath, or shampoo, I use it solely as a shower gel.
 
Would I repurchase? Maybe. I really liked the Philosophy 3-in-1s, and I hope I can try out some other scents next holiday season!

Have you tried Philosophy products before? Please let me know of your favorites!
