Overall I am a big fan of Philosophy products, I have always had good luck with them in the past. Of all the products I have tried, this is the greatest disappointment. It is the combined fact that it's a 3-in-1, and the scent. The scent was by far the biggest let down for me. It's not the fact that this product isn't true to scent, because it is. It truly does smell like cinnamon buns. It's just the fact that it doesn't smell like very good cinnamon buns. I'm not sure exactly what it is, but for some reason it just smells wrong to me.
One of the reasons these 3-in-1 products are marketed the way they are is because they are convenient when you travel, you can combine several different bottles into one. The only problem I have with that is it makes it so that it doesn't do the individual jobs as well as another product that is meant for one thing can do. I never use this as my shampoo/conditioner because it does nothing to help my hair, and in fact I find it detrimental to the health of my hair. I do like using these products as body wash and bubble bath, I find they do a very good job at that. The only problem with this product is that I don't like smelling like a weird cinnamon bun, which for the price you have to pay for one of these, is not worth it.

When I first got Philosophy Cinnamon Buns I was in love with the smell. It smells literally like you stepped into a bakery and are getting a whiff of a freshly baked sugary cinnamon bun.
However as I began to use it more I realized that maybe the smell was a little too strong for me. I even began to get a headache and feel queasy when I used it consistently. I think this scent is just so overpowering and very noticeable that it became too strong of a scent for me to use on a daily basis. I also felt like this shampoo/body wash was very drying for both my skin and hair.
For these reasons, I would recommend using this for a bubble bath on occasion or near the winter holidays. The cinnamon smell would be great for getting into the holiday spirit and just to liven up your bath. I think using it as a bubble bath also helped to dissipate the aroma and not make it as overwhelming. I would not recommend this to somebody with dry skin, sensitive skin, or somebody who is sensitive to strong aromas.

Effectiveness
I feel that Cinnamon Buns does effectively clean and give off aroma, although it can be drying for the skin and hair.

Scent
This actually does smell like a sugary, sweet Cinnamon Bun. However, it can be a very overwhelming smell when used regularly, maybe too strong for some.

Bless the three-in-one!

Comments about Philosophy Cinnamon Buns Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath:

All hail the three-in-one bath products! This was SUCH a great find! Not only did it smell absolutely amazing (I was seriously craving cinnamon buns after I used this), but it's so nice to only have to pack one bottle when I go out. Even better, when I discovered that I had forgotten my son's bubble bath (a high crime in our household since he is going through his "afraid of the bath" phase, which is pretty much only aleviated by bubbles), I remembered that I could use this product in its place! This was such a lovely, luxurious product and I can't recommend it enough. I will definitely be using it again.

Effectiveness
This left my hair squeaky clean and my whole body feeling clean and soft! My skin looked and smelled amazing after using this. I was so happy with it! I wasn't sure at first if a three-in-one product could really be so effective, but I was thrilled with the results.

Scent
The scent is absolutely lovely!

Comments about Philosophy Cinnamon Buns Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath:

I really enjoyed using this product. It's very convenient. It's much less of a hassle than using separate products for everything. It foams up easily. There wasn't really a downfall to it. The scent was absolutely amazing. It was probably my favorite part about it. You should give it a try, for sure.

Only works as a bubble bath for me

Comments about Philosophy Cinnamon Buns Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath:

I have tried using this product in all the ways it's marketed to be used: as a shampoo, as a shower gel, and as a bubble bath. I hate this product as a shampoo. It leaves my hair greasy and limp. It hardly removes any of the dirt from my hair.

When I use this product as a shower gel, it doesn't leave me feeling clean. Although the product is moisturizing, it doesn't make me feel clean. I almost always use a bar soap afterwards because this just isn't enough for me.

I love using this product as a bubble bath. It creates the most amazing, incredibly scented bubbles. I was surprised to find that the bubbles last a long time… I love when products do that!

Scent
The scent of this product is to die for. It literally smells like someone made homemade cinnamon rolls and just pulled them out of the oven. If you don't like sweet, caramel scents, then this one won't be for you. I love smelling like a bakery, though, so this scent is one of my favorites.

Comments about Philosophy Cinnamon Buns Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath:

Philosophy is a company known for their fabulous scents and this one 3-in-1 is no different. Cinnamon buns shampoo, shower gel, and bubble bath smells just like the name suggests but better because no calories! This products scent is one of the most perfect cinnamon bun scents on the market it is sweet without crossing that line into sickening sweet. It However the effectiveness of the shampoo idea is something else, if you had naturally prefect hair I would say do it, but for the most of us who don't this product isn't for us when it comes to shampoo. I find I get large amounts of build up from it, as well as it does't clean my hair that well. Using it as a shower gel or bubble bath however are awesome, it gives luscious bi bubbles and laters super well. The scent lingers on the body almost all day, it has even lingered on me post workout!! It is a splurge but a little goes a long way I find with product

Great Product

By

Comments about Philosophy Cinnamon Buns Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath:

The Philosophy Cinnamon Buns Shampoo, Shower Gel, and Bubble Bath is a great, convenient product because it is an all-in-one product. This is all you need to keep in your shower.

The body wash is not harsh on your skin, and it is gentle enough to use daily as a Shampoo. I tend to have sensitive skin, but I have not had any problems with this product. My skin tends to break out, but this does not cause any problems with break-outs. I also have color-treated hair, and I have never had a problem with this causing my color to fade or with drying out my hair.

Effectiveness
This is great to use as a bubble bath or shampoo or body wash. It keeps your skin clean and soft, and hair feeling clean.

Scent
I love the scent of this product. It reminds me of the winter season, and it definitely smells exactly as you would imagine it to smell. All of the Philosophy products have a great scent, and I have never purchased one that I did not like the smell of.

Smells great and makes a great lather with bubbles

By

Comments about Philosophy Cinnamon Buns Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath:

I received Philosophy Cinnamon Buns Shampoo, Shower Gel, and Bubble Bath as part of a Christmas set. I love it! The scent is great-it smells just like warm, fresh cinnamon buns! It makes me want to bake some! Philosophy makes amazing, but pricey products. I was glad that this was a gift-it enabled me to reward my body for free! This product makes a wonderfully rich, bubbly lather. It feels great on your skin because it has such a soft and creamy texture and it washes off with ease. It also comes out of your hair with ease and it makes your hair feel so fresh, soft, and bouncy. Love this product!

Effectiveness
This is a fabulous product because it can be used as shampoo, body wash, and to make a relaxing bubble bath. The scent is amazing-just like fresh cinnamon buns. It makes a wonderful lather and leaves skin and hair feeling great.

Scent
This is one of the best scents ever! If you love cinnamon buns it is a must have!

Extra Luxurious!

Comments about Philosophy Cinnamon Buns Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath:

Philosophy has great products and this is one of them. It has been a while since I used any of their body and bath items and I think I'll have to treat myself soon.. . This is soooo nice. A little goes a long way and it's a real treat for your senses. I love how soothing it feels and it moisturizes really well. The cinnamon gives a little pizzaz to the wash, which is great. I definitely recommend this for those times you want something different and ultra luxurious.

Effectiveness
This feels so good on the skin. It's one of those bath gels you need to just soak in for a while to get the full effect. Trust me, you'll want to just soak this up, it's that good. It does a great job smoothing and moisturizing. It has a great buttery touch that's just almost confusing; you feel like you ought to be eating it instead of bathing in it!

Scent
Lovely, lovely, lovely. It really is like being in a room of freshly made cinnamon buns. Philosophy has a great way of authentically matching scents and this really smells true to life. Make sure you have some cinnamon buns on hand because you're going to want them when you're done with this!

Yummy, yummy in my... shower.

Comments about Philosophy Cinnamon Buns Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath:

First of all, all philosophy products are amazing! Especially these 3-in-1 shower gels. The scents are all wonderful. Super strong and just as described. Not only do they smell wonderful, but they leave your skin feeling super soft as well. There are so many scents to choose from, I like to collect them all. There are a variety of holiday type scents that make great gifts or stocking stuffers.
The Cinnamon Buns 3-in-1 shower gel by philosophy will literally make your mouth water while taking a shower. You will come out craving some hot and fresh cinnamon buns. Really, that is how accurate the scent is.
As a body wash, this will leave your skin nice and soft. Oh, and smelling great! I think the price is a little high on these not only because of the scent, but it really is a quality body wash.
Works great as a bubble bath. The bubbles aren't lacking! The scent comes in really nice when using this as a bubble bath.
I have never used as a shampoo, but based on how well it works for the other uses, I bet it works great as a shampoo!
