Philosophy x QVC Classic Shower Gel Collection + Giveaway

July 24, 2016

I’m the type of person who lives for bubble baths. Many beauty lovers say that on a bad day there’s always lipstick (which I agree with) but for me there’s nothing that helps me relax and unwind like a good bubble bath to melt away stress. Philosophy makes some of my favorite shower gels – many of them are multi-tasking products that you can use for the hair, body wash and bubble bath (and they actually work for both hair and body). My go-to for years has been the Amazing Grace Shower Gel and I’ve lost count of how many bottles I’ve used up. QVC has a lot of value sets and I’m excited to team up with them to share Today’s Special Value in the Classic Collection which has four super-sized 32 fl oz shower gels in Lemon Custard, Orange Pineapple Smoothie, Fresh Cream and Cinnamon Buns. The set is offered at a value price of $79.96 for today only and QVC is also giving away one set via The Beauty Look Book.

When I first opened the box – I intended on splitting this up into gifts as each bottle is huge! On a few previous philosophy posts, several readers have mentioned that they buy the large sets and split them up as party favors for girl friends or just give them as gifts with a special note. I think that’s such a sweet thing to do. After testing a couple of these though and don’t know that I will be able to bring myself to give them away because they are really really good. At first sniff these smell incredibly rich and sweet. In the shower or bath they do soften up quite a bit – Cinnamon Buns smells just like Cinnamon Buns which seems like it might be an odd scent bathe in, but it’s amazing. Fresh Cream is a sweet mix of vanilla and cream which is also another one I’ve fallen in love with. I mixed two pumps of Fresh Cream with a cap of Amazing Grace and the mix was quite interesting. I think I need to experiment more with mixing the scents in the tub because it gives you an entirely different kind of experience. The other two fruity options I’ve taken a quick smell at – still deciding whether to keep or gift away, but they smell like fruit smoothies.

If you’re the type who prefers something fragrance or scent free, philosophy makes their Purity Made Simple Body Cleanser which is one of the best fragrance free gentle body washes I’ve tried. It also comes in the super size version which lasted me well over six months. Most of the scents are available for purchase separately as well. You can find Cinnamon Buns, Lemon Custard and Fresh Cream in the large versions (they all come with handy pumps) and also in a number of other set options. Based on what I’ve tried – all the body cleansers leave the body feeling squeaky clean and softly scented. For stronger fragrance it’s best to layer with a lotion or body cream, but I prefer my shower gels to leave the skin with a soft hint of scent.

A few snapshots of the ingredients listed on the back of each bottle (you can click for larger viewing):

The 4 Piece Classic Collection Set is offered at a value price for today only (there’s a handy countdown clock on their product page). The Classic Collection has Lemon Custard, Sweet Cream, Cinnamon Buns and Orange Pineapple Smoothie.

  • Lori Jenkins July 25, 2016 at 12:37 am

    Vanilla birthday cake is my fav – I received a small bottle as a Sephora birthday gift and have been obsessed every since….gone through multiple bottles! It's not overly sweet and the vanilla scent is very warm and comforting after a tough day.

    Fresh Cream is definitively a favorite from Philosophy but my all time favorite is the honeybee bath bomb from Lush. Snowman bath bomb a close second.

  • Mallory Lambert July 25, 2016 at 1:13 pm

    My favorite Philosophy product is definitely the Pure Grace shower gel. It makes for the most relaxing bubble bath.

  • FauxBeautyPro July 25, 2016 at 1:18 pm

    I love coconut and vanilla scents the best. Philosophy came out with a coconut shower gel variety pack a few years ago and it contained the orange-coconut scent – amazing! I also love the Purity Made Simple face wash – cleans the face without stripping and removes all makeup.

  • Tanya N July 25, 2016 at 1:39 pm

  • Chris July 25, 2016 at 3:27 pm

    I used to use the Philosophy shower gels that came out during Christmas time, Snow Angel, I think it was called.

  • Jennifer July 25, 2016 at 3:31 pm

    I love Senorita Margarita and anything with coconut.

  • Aimee July 25, 2016 at 3:37 pm

    I have all of these and love every single one of them. I also love Cabana Girl, Beach Party, Peppermint Stick, Orange Cocoa and Cream, and more. I like that they smell delicious and feel great in the shower or bath, but the scent washes down the drain and you don't smell like Lemon Custard after stepping out of the bath – unless you WANT to and use the matching body cream. None of these interfere with any fragrance I might want to wear that day.

  • CharleneD July 25, 2016 at 3:54 pm

    Love the shower gel, pretty much all scents.

  • Angie Mach July 25, 2016 at 4:42 pm

    I love the tea tree body wash from the body shop! So invigorating!
