Philosophy 3-in-1: Shampoo, Shower Gel and Bubble Bath in Vanilla Cupcake

A super-duper big thanks to Sephora for having the Beauty Insider Birthday Program! It always makes turning a year older less painful. ;)  Like the title said, I received a free 6 oz bottle of Philosophy Shampoo, Shower Gel, Bubble Bath in Vanilla Cupcake.

There's two scents I absolutely love: mint and vanilla.

Packaging- As you can see from the photo the product is packaged in a semi-clear/frosted plastic bottle with a black flip-top cap. The semi-transparent bottle makes it easy to know just how much of the 3-in-1 wash is remaining. 

Use - The shower gel in my opinion is gentle enough for everyday use. 
In other words, the wash doesn't dry out my skin nor does it make my skin feel greasy or oily. The wash lathers well -with lots of bubbles- and rinsed off easily. The product left my skin feeling clean and soft but no fragrances lingered on my skin, which was highly disappointing.  Not only was the vanilla scent was not detectable on my skin, I couldn't smell the sweet fragrance wafting in my bathroom.  :(

I don't commonly take baths so I have yet to use the product in bubble bath. I also didn't use the product as a shampoo.  Judging from the feel of the wash I think it's better as a shower gel than a shampoo. I think the 3-in-1 would weigh my hair down. Yuck!

Scent and Texture - Weak, generic faux-vanilla pudding.    The scent is very faint and the wash does not smell like vanilla cupcake at all.   I will give Philosophy points for having the perfect consistency and creamy texture; the wash is not too watery and not too thick.

Bottom line: The product is okay at best. I would probably opt to try out their other 3-in-1's. I give this a 7.5/10.
