Philosophy Raspberry Sorbet Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath: A head-to-toe cleansing product that is conveniently my shampoo and shower gel

And so my mum was curious as to why I went to the bathroom and took the Philosophy Raspberry Sorbet Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath to my room. She happened to stood nearby when I tip-toe into the bathroom 😀 . As you already know what the hype is all about two months ago, Philosophy is finally launched in Malaysia back in February 2014. All this big and highly raved brands is slowly making it’s way into our country, very much to beauty enthusiast delight. There’s another one coming to us very very soon. I’ll tell you about it when I can.

I happened to be given a few of Philosophy best-seller products to try. I can’t tell which one I like because I love it all! Philosophy product works so well on me that it makes me happy by just looking at it. Because I love it so much, I thought I should also tell you about it. Philosophy Raspberry Sorbet Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath happens to be the first Philosophy product I ever tried from the loot. This is love at first sight.

Philosophy Raspberry Sorbet Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath 1
One particular product that I’ve been reading a lot on Philosophy previously is the multitasking 3-in-1 shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath product. There are a few flavours of 3-in-1 shower gel offered by Philosophy and although I have yet to try it all, I can safely said that I’m quite glad I started off with Raspberry Sorbet flavour. One sniff already sent me to heaven. One bath? There’s no turning back!

I have heard before a few years ago from my guy friends that they only use one product for head to toe. I was like “is there such product?”. Well, looks like there is…for guy that is. This Philosophy Raspberry Sorbet Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath is a 3-in-1 head-to-toe cleansing product. At first I thought it’s just a shower gel. When I really read through everything printed on the front of the bottle, I was pretty excited to use it as a shampoo as well. I only wish I have a bathtub at home.

The gel is not as thick as I thought it would be. But it is creamy nonetheless. It lathers so well that I need not to add more as I shower. I used it as shower gel most of the time but there are times where I used it as shampoo AND as shower gel when I was not feeling well or times when I was rushing. Tell you something funny. The first time I used it as shampoo and shower gel is when I wanted to try out how it fares as a shampoo. I know it works so well as shower gel but I have no idea at all how it would be as shampoo. Will my scalp sensitivity came back? Will I get dandruff? Or will my scalp get greasy easily? I started off with shampooing my hair. As you know I have long hair so I pour a bit more extra. What I didn’t know is that when it is used as shampoo, it lathers even more. I find myself ended up with a whole head full with thick foams. Lots of it. I wouldn’t want to waste more product to shower so I pull down all the foams to my body and start lathering myself LOL. Gross I know but I couldn’t help it. I did it because I know my hair wasn’t that dirty at all. I mean how dirty can your hair get sitting at home all day eh? You know what? Surprisingly I managed to wash the whole body by using all the foams. It feels clean, I smells like raspberry from head to toe so it’s all good 😀

As a shampoo, it is superb! To be honest I didn’t expect that. My hair feels airy and light, my scalp doesn’t gets oily, there’s no dandruff and scalp is not itchy. Basically it works better than some shampoo. As a shower gel, the skin feels hydrated and clean. What I like is how the raspberry scent stays on me for hours and hours. I like how my hair and my skin smells the same and how there is absolutely no chemical scent at all.

Philosophy kept their bottles and jars simple. Each product has a catchy name to help you to remember the important things in life, each product has a story and each product bears an uplifting messages. As for Philosophy Raspberry Sorbet Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath, the bottle bears a recipe for raspberry sorbet. Interesting.

This is one shower gel that I wouldn’t mind repurchasing. I like it’s multitasking usage that can double up as shampoo and shower gel for me whenever I’m feeling lazy or in a rush. I mean, guy can have a head-to-toe product and now women can too.

Philosophy range is not totally complete yet in Sephora so do give it some time for the brand to slowly bring in more and more products. Same goes to the 3-in-1 shower gel as well. If you do plan to pick up a bottle, you can always try the Raspberry Sorbet Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath 🙂


Philosophy Raspberry Sorbet Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath is available at all Sephora outlets nationwide.

Price: RM85 for 480ml

  • You are funny!^^ I would do the same too if there’s so much foam on my head. The shower gel must be smelling good from the name. Good for travelling as most hotel have a bathtub^^

    • Trying to save! lol. I hope the gel killed all the germs hahaha. Eh you are right! Good for travelling. Hotel does have a bathtub!! 🙂

  • Hmmmm… Another interesting new product. And you made it really sound so tempting to try! LOL Gotta go to Sephora soon! Thanks a lot for the review, Fiona 🙂

    • Quite. Good for the lazy days haha! It does smells good and works well as head to toe product. Not bad considering I have sensitive and dry scalp. I used this quite generously and I’m not even at half bottle. Do give it a sniff at Sephora 😛

  • I wanna try this when I have extra cash 😀 been eyeing them the last time i went to sephora, hehe! the fact that it is a 3-in-1 product makes me wanna experience how awesome it can be ^_^ i have coarse hair, hopefully it wont make my tresses any worse.

    • Next I’m gonna review a 3-in-1 cleanser haha. All the short cut routine is so useful especially now that my housing area is under water rationing.

  • Head to toes? I am surprise that you says it actually foam well on hair. Usually these all in one kind of shampoo don’t work well on hair and cause dryness. It’s great to hear it don’t cause dandruff or greasy on your hair.

    • I know right! Exactly what I think! I was wondering how can a shower gel works well as a shampoo as well. So the shampoo part must be bad. It turns out quite good.

  • I missed the Bag of Love Philosophy Happy Bag because I took too long to think about and it was gone in a flash 🙁
    Me thinks I will now never see a better offer for this brand. I am really fond of their gingerbread products but tried their Grace perfume and didn’t like it.

    • Don’t be sad about it because there was only 5 bags. It’s gone in less than 15 minutes I think. There’s literally no time to think at all 🙁
      You are right. It’s really the best offer for Philosophy so far. The price for the whole set is for one product if you buy from Sephora. Grace perfume is a love and hate. I have friends who love it and friends who hated it. So far it works well on me. I have someone commented in my Instagram that her Hope In A Jar moisturiser changes color. That scares me. I gotta use mine real quick.

      • Wow, only 5 bags?! It’s no wonder then and thanks for verifying that I’m not the only one who is not a fan of Grace. I thought I was weird or something. The packaging and bottle is perfect for me but the scent…I put it down right away!

        • I was wild guessing to a friend of mine when she didn’t managed to secure a bag. I randomly said to her “so fast finished? it must be just 5 bags”. Turns out I was right! haha 😀
          Fragrance is very personal. There’s no right or wrong as our body dispense out different body chemistry. Some fragrance smells good on you but may smells like a pee to me haha. I have had that before.
