Review // Philosophy Pumpkin Pie Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath

When my my mum delivered my box of Halloween decorations at the beginning of October I was overjoyed to discover a supersize bottle of Philosophy's Pumpkin Pie. When I first went to the US many years ago I went completely nuts for Philosophy's shower gel range and weighed my case down heavily with bottles of the stuff completely sucked in to their scents and seasonal ranges.

Both a negative and positive to these products is their longevity. I swear no matter how frequently I use the bottles do not go down. The only reason I appear to have used so much of this bottle is because I decanted some for my mum and a friend. They really do last forever (or it feels that way!).

Philosophy sells these bottles as shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath but I find they work best as a shower gel. I did use in as a bubble bath the other night and it works but there's not enough bubbles for me. As a shampoo it's basic and I use it if I'm having an evening bath and just want to freshen my hair up or I'm just spending the day at home, definitely not something I'd use on a daily basis. 

As a shower gel it's the best. Thick, creamy and smells amazing. This lends itself to a cinnamon scent but I can't help but just want to describe it as Autumnal and quite frankly perfect.

I haven't seen much about Philosophy products from beauty bloggers so I'd love to hear if there are any other fans out there. For now all that's left to do is wish you a Happy Halloween and ask what trick or treat plans you have.

  1. This is one of the nicest and most authentic pumpkins scents for me - it's lovely, although for me it's a bit dehydrating as a shampoo so will just enjoy it as a shower gel :o). Xx

  2. I've always wanted to try this! I think I'm a tiny bit put off by how long it lasts though in a way - I don't want to smell like Halloween all year! Maybe I'll just get a little bottle :) love how detailed your reviews are x

  3. I really like Philosophy products but they are a bit pricey so I tend to gravitate towards Bath and Body and The Body Shop. Both of these shops have amazing quality and occasional sales.

  5. I have this & I'm loving it too! How good does it smell?! Also loving how long lasting it is too yay! Xxx

  6. OMG I am a philosophy junkie! QVC sells all special kits and then Sephora and department stores sell them. I love pure Grace and Baby Grace the best they keep selling out of fresh cream smells divine! Their Christmas items are adorable. Does your QVC sell them also. I beleive Friday in the US they have a special Value. I also started loving their skincare items. Grace xoox Happy Halloween

  7. need this in my life. Am going to track it down.

  8. A few shampoos clean particularly well despite the fact that they produce almost no foam.
