Philosophy describes this scent as, “a minty spin on a chocolaty holiday favorite. this super-decadent, new peppermint hot cocoa shampoo, shower gel & bubble bath 16 oz. will surely become your favorite shower-time treat. the ultra-rich formula provides a moisturizing lather from head to toe to gently cleanse and condition your skin and hair. it even comes in a giftable holiday box.”
I am a big, and a long-time, fan of Philosophy’s 3-in-1 gels. I only use mine as shower gels (I prefer other products for shampoo, and I rarely take baths), but I love these for two reasons: 1) sheer variety in scents available and 2) they lather up so easily and quickly and feel great when you’re using them in the shower. I think these are affordable products, because one 16 oz. bottle lasts me about three or four months, easily. You don’t need much to lather head to toe or to get the scent to fill your shower. The only thing I don’t like about these is I find the bottle packaging to be of a very hard plastic, so it isn’t as easy as I’d like to squeeze out the product when it starts getting empty–requires a little strength!
Bottom Line: If you prefer shower gels that give you a lingering scent after the shower is over, Philosophy’s aren’t really designed for that purpose (they actually advertise them as scents that don’t linger past the shower/bath). If, however, you want to enjoy a burst of scent in the shower in various fun scents like Peppermint Hot Cocoa, but don’t necessarily want to walk around smelling like that, these are amazing.
