Quick Review: Philosophy Hot Buttered Rum

Philosophy Hot Buttered Rum Shower Gel ($16.00 for 16 oz.) is a rich, buttery scent of caramel and sweetness; it’s a little sweeter than butterscotch but has the same sweetness of syrup without being overwhelming.  It’s a very foodie scent, but it has quickly become one of my favorite holiday scents from Philosophy this year.

Philosophy Shower Gels are one of my personal favorites for body washes, because they come in an assortment of scents, with new ones each season. They lather up well and leave skin feeling clean without any tightness or dryness. I wouldn’t call these a moisturizing body wash nor do their scents linger. If you prefer your body wash to leave behind a long-lasting scent, these won’t be for you, but if you like to enjoy the scent while you shower but don’t want it to linger beyond, then these are perfect. (I belong to the latter category!) I don’t find them to lather quite as well in the hair, and they work in a pinch to clean hair, but I prefer many other shampoos over this one. It does, however, work well as a bubble bath, too–a little goes a long way.

Welcome to Swatch-all-idays! To start 2011 off on the right foot (or post, as it may be!), Temptalia is going through a backlog of products we have photographed, swatched, and often tested but in a slightly different manner. Quick reviews may be partially incomplete, such as a blush may only be swatched on the arm rather than shown on the face. It is our hope that what we are able to provide is still helpful!

    I agree this one is delish. I’d like to use it as an ice cream topping!

    I love this, it’s my new fave for winter. I loved the Rainbow Sherbet for summer.
