Philosophy Raspberry Sorbet Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath
This smells like a fresh raspberry smoothie. Not creamy at all, just very potently raspberries. I guess Sorbet is a good word for it too, but I've actually never had raspberry sorbet. The scent of this product is juicy, tart, fresh, tangy, and just mouthwatering. I adore it.
Philosophy has a lot of scents centered around food and baked goods. I actually think this may be one of the few non-baked goods smell they have. I originally bought this in the winter when they were having a sale on Nordstrom, which is why this is a smaller sized bottle. It is a permanent scent though and you can purchase a full 16 oz size at Sephora. It also comes in their lip gloss formula.
I really do like their Shampoo/Shower Gel/Bubble Bath formula. I mostly use it as a shower gel or bubble bath. For both uses it froths up pretty well and you get a nice lather. I have used it as a shampoo before and it gets the job done for basic purposes - if you're looking for a shampoo with a special formula for dry or oily hair I'd look somewhere else. I like to take it to swim meets since it's a 3-in-1 product so I don't have to take a separate shampoo and body wash with me. It's also good to travel with if you squeeze some into a travel sized bottle. The scent definitely lingers in the hair and skin for a good four to five hours after use, especially with this scent.
Because of the scent this is one of my favorite Philosophy products. Their formula is the same across the line for their 3-in-1s but I reach for this scent the most when I go to use one of my Philosophy products. Especially on those hot summer like sunny days. I typically always use my Lush It's Raining Men when I want something comforting - it takes a really specific mood for me to pull out the other Philosophy 3-in-1s. Raspberry Sorbet is a pretty unique scent though, and it doesn't smell artificial really. Just like a fresh Razzmatazz.
Philosophy products can be found at Sephora.
