I love using this product. I use it as bubble bath and as cleanser in my bath! It never makes my skin feel oily or greasy after my bath. My skin just feels soft and clean! And the fragrance is delightful. It is like being in my or my Mom's kitchen making very vanilla sugar cookies. I was given this in a basket and had never used Philosophy brand before. I will buy it S my first choice. I might even try another fragrance, but unless it is cinnamon, buttered toast or chocolate, I don't know! Effectiveness It fills my rather deep tub with fragrant but not over the top cloying odor bubbles and does not leave a ring. I find my skin feeling and looking clean but not greasy. It feel soft. And my husband loves the fragrance too! Scent The scent is wRm and relaxing. Just imagine having a vanilla sugar cookie before bed! It is not too overpowering but you can really smell the vanilla. It have a rich, full fragrance of expensive real vanilla. There are no sharp tones just a warm. Homey scent.
