Blogmas Day 10: Philosophy Christmas Cookie

10 December 2013

Back in my Autumn evening routine post, I mentioned that I'd been using Christmas Cookie, one of Philosophy's infamous three-in-one bath products. Given that it now truly tis the season, I thought it was about time to share my thoughts on this festive tub treat. I managed to snap up this bottle of Christmas Cookie for £7 in the Boots New Year sale, but this year Philosophy have included it in the Cookie Exchange Gift Set.

Although I can't comment on how this works as a shampoo - I don't like to stray from my beloved Paul Mitchell Platinum Shampoo - I'm pretty clued upon on Christmas Cookie as both a bubble bath and shower gel. In terms of scents, I'm in heaven. This has a proper, vanilla-y cookie fragrance, which doesn't smell remotely artificial. Using this in my bath makes the whole room smell like my kitchen on baking day - no complaints there. Whilst this works nicely as a bubble bath (it produces a nice amount of bubbles, but it's no Lush bath bomb), I much prefer using it as a shower gel. Christmas Cookie feels really moisturising on the skin and lathers nicely. I have very sensitive skin on my arms and have to be careful what I use, but I had no reaction whatsoever which was lovely.

Whilst I don't think I could justify the full £14 on a bottle of shower gel for daily use, this makes a really lovely occasional treat. I'm sure it'd be a much appreciated gift for any bath/cookie lovers, I'll be making use of my 'one for them, one for me' policy.

This is day 10 of Blogmas 2013. To view all of my other Blogmas posts, click here.
