I’m in such a good mood today I thought I’d grace you with my every lovely presense and present you with a blog of shower gels (It also helps that work isn’t busy and I can afford to procrastinate my way around a blog today)!
This is a very important topic of discussion so please pay heed and follow it well!
I’ve always questioned the amount of shower gel, soaps, fancy bits and bobs one girl needs for her bath and shower and I’ve come to the conclusion that we need many! An endless variety to pick and choose to suit our moods during our showers and baths!
Now I am no different from any other girl in I own an array of paraphilia that graces my washroom and overflows from my cabinets and shelves.
If my weight had anything at all to do with shower gels I fear I’d be guilty in overindulging in sweets, baked goods, fruits, and other guilty pleasures and treasures!
I’m a philosophy girl and I have been for many a fine year! I have cheated on philosophy the last few years with a small company called Lush but that’s for another blog and another day!
philosophy is ever near and dear to my heart!
Now philosophy is well known for it’s fabulous 3 in 1 shower gels and I beg you not to think too badly of me when I say I hate the “in the shower” experience! I’ve no aversion to smelling like candy canes, crumb berry pie, vanilla cream puffs, and the likes! So why oh why can’t the scent linger longer? Sigh! In the shower it’s so lovely and fragrant, step out and it’s gone, a forgotten dream of gorgeous scent! I wish they’d make a shower gel with good linger and throw something that would stay with your hair all day and cling to your body equally! How depressing!
But…still…I keep my pile of 3 in 1’s and happily use them daily!
Now to move forward slightly I should tell you that in all my years of buying these gels I’ve come across quite a few that stay on my favorite list!
Some that grace my MUST have on hand ALWAYS list are:
I have to go ahead and rant a tiny bit more. The fact that they have come out with some real shit 3 in 1’s the last year or so bugs me. Some that must be avoided at all costs in my humblest of humble opinions would be: Sugar Cookie (this smells NOTHING like Sugar Cookies! Who the hell approved this as smelling like sugar and cookies? All I get is LEMON!), Vanilla Cream Puff (Just GROSS and wrong in so many ways), Lavender Pound Cake (OH MY GOD I think I threw up a little in my mouth! GAG! Who’s bright idea was it to put lavender in a pound cake anway?)
Which brings me to the topic of Lemonade! They introduced Lemonade last year and boy was I excited to get my paws on it! My imagination took flight and visions of cool, tart, sweet lemons danced through my head as I made my way to Sephora.com! Upon its arrival the smell of Lemonade do not greet me as I had expect. This version of Lemonade has the weirdest off smell I’ve had the displeasure of sniffing! Very strange! How disappointing!
This year marked the year of fruits! They have come out with a slew of new fruity 3 in 1’s! Tangerine, Lime, Peach, Oh MY! But I’ve had none of it! I didn’t purchase a one! Once Bitten, Twice Shy by friends! I will not be compelled to order fruity bits and have them come to my door being as disappointing as Lemonade was!
But, by far, the piece Pièce de résistance this summer is Pink Lemonade! Yes, Yes I know what you are thinking! “She’s gone on a rant about Lemonade and now she excited about Pink Lemonade? What the hell is wrong with her?” I KNOW I know! But I can’t help myself!
The good news is that Pink Lemonache is exclusive to Nordstrom! We love Nordie’s exlusives don’t we?
I was smart this time around! I was having none of ordering online! I was prepared! I was sniffing before buying! My genius astounds me sometimes!
Upon arriving at the source of this exclusive 3 in 1 Shower Gel I was prepared for disappointment and despair but to my shock and utter delight THIS is what I had wanted and desired in Lemonade! Sweet, Tart, Lovely Lemons and Sugar Oh MY! Tis perfect! Just perfect! I want to take a spoon and eat the body butter from it’s very jar it smells that GOOD!
Finally you’ve gotten it right philosophy! Bravo! My highest rating for this yummy collection of goodies! This is by far my favorite of all the 3 in 1’s thus far!
I went ahead and spoiled myself with the lot…now let’s see if we can convince them to release a hand wash in this scent and I’ll be happy indeed!
