About this deal

Unfortunately, the smell can only be enjoyed in the shower and doesn't stay on the skin after rinsing. I have been known to take many baths in this too, it creates beautiful bubbles and I can sit there and read my book smelling of cinnamon, yet consuming no calories! It is also very gentle so can be used over the whole body without causing any dryness or irritation as highly perfumed products can cause. I haven't found it as effective as a shampoo, as I don't wash my hair everyday, so it is probably a little too gentle to be used on the regular.

I received some of these shower gels as a gift some time ago, and since then I have been on a mission to try more of the delightful scents. Best of all you don't need very much whichever way you use it, as it is a high quality product and a little goes a long way. You can wash your hair in this , it makes it soft and lovely feeling, and of course, cinnamon smelling! I do wish it was a stronger scent though as I don't have the greatest sense of smell and I could really only smell it when I was up close to it, so it must have a fairly weak scent. the gentle award-winning formula provides a rich, foaming lather, infused with the scent of sweet, fresh-baked cinnamon buns.In comparison to Bath and Body Works and Victoria's Secret body washes, Philosophy's Cinnamon Buns is more expensive and doesn't leave a trace of the fragrance on skin after showering. So if you like the smell of cinnamon (which you must do or you would not be looking at this product in the first place) go ahead and treat yourself or give as a gift because it is so lovely to use and who doesn't want to smell of cinnamon buns. I have to say the gel actually looks a lot like the frosting spread on the buns (yes I am obsessed with those buns!

the scent lingers on the body for a short time after the shower, but it has a great feel and leaves no greasy/oily film afterwards. This truly delicious bath and shower gel always brings back memories of trips to the US and the wonderful Cinnabon kiosks, selling enormous cinnamon rolls topped with creamy white frosting, that were so hard to resist.

Of all the scents I have tried so far, this one has been my favourite, It has a strong delicious fragrance, without being too overwhelming in the shower. I have to say something about the packaging - I love Philosophy's little recipes printed on their bottles and this one is no exception. All in all, Philosophy's Cinnamon Buns 3-in-1 is a yummy scent, and works wonderfully as a body wash, but I wouldn't repurchase. I haven't tried it as a shampoo yet though as I prefer to use ones targeted towards my hair and scalp issues.

This shower gel smells simply beautiful, just like cinnamon buns baking and sticky sweet icing, it smells so delicious you feel you could eat it, (I dont of course), This is great for the shower as the handy bottle with flip top leaves no mess so its super easy to use. I was looking for a body wash that had a unique smell and that the fragrance would stay on skin after getting out of the shower.The body wash smelled amazing, made my skin feel good and clean in the shower, but once my shower ended, so did all of those feelings and smell! the philosophy cinnamon buns shower gel with it's moisturising formula cleanses and conditions for skin and hair that feels ultra soft. I bought this product and in the bright lights of Sephora it appeared a super shimmery, quite pretty, off white colour.

I also decant this gel into a hand washing pump and have it on the side of the bathroom and kitchen, and that way I get to experience the cinnamon smell yet again! The smell is sublime, and the result is lovely and clean, soft skin that lingers of cinnamon and icing smell all day. I have also poured a little gel in the bath - it bubbles up nicely and you can enjoy the cinnamon scent even longer. The smell is strong in the shower but is delicate afterwards, which I appreciate b/c i don't want to be a walking cinnamon bun. As a bubble bath, the bubbles don't reach anything higher than a fizz, and they dissipate almost instantly, so I definitely don't recommend it for that purpose.It smells amazing and a little goes along way,so if you think it seems a little expensive for a shower gell it will last for a long time so works out good value for money. It's not strong, and doesn't linger on the skin, so it won't compete with any perfumes/body sprays you use after showering. The gel lathers really well as a body wash, and works okay as a shampoo (I do find that my roots get oilier a little quicker than usual with continual use - but using it here or there doesn't seem to cause this issue). This is certainly nice as a treat and due to its cost I would rather use it as a body wash than for bubble baths as well as I use more for the bath.
