Phillip B Review

There is nothing more relaxing to me than a hot shower or bath, so I don’t mind investing good money in luxurious bath products. My most recent find is a duo of body washes from Philip B®. The company was founded in 1991 by Philip B., a hair stylist who began whipping up natural, more gentle hair and body treatments for his clients. The ingredients in his products come from all over the world, and are all botanicals and essential oils. What began as an in-home project tested out on friends and family erupted into a booming business; Philip B.’s Four Step Hair and Scalp Treatment even went on to get named as one of the “Top 100 things that are worth every penny” in Forbes magazine.

I received two body washes, Chai Latte Soul & Body and Thai Tea Mind & Body, to try out. They were beautifully packaged in a black box with the Philip B® font and logo on it, and tied with a tasteful ribbon. Both scents appealed to me because they remind me of other luxuries I cannot go without: coffee and tea.

Looking at the ingredients of the Chai Latte Soul & Body Wash, I was surprised to see that I recognized many of the main ingredients: honey, milk proteins, black tea, cinnamon, and quite a few others. Just looking at the bottle, I could see the honey swirled in it, adding a dark ribbon around the bottle. Before I used it, I followed the directions and shook the bottle to get the ingredients to blend. The scent is a bit masculine because of the spices and herbs used, but the smells that linger on the skin are very subtle. This particular body wash is suggested as a great gift for fathers, husbands, and boyfriends, but I think women will enjoy it too.

The Thai Tea Mind & Body Wash contains another interesting mixture of ingredients you might recognize: lemongrass, thai tea, ginger root, and peppermint. The peppermint will cool your skin and help you wake up on those slow mornings.

Both body washes contain 20% pure botanical extracts and are paraben free, so they will have a shorter shelf life because the ingredients are all natural. I definitely recommend these body washes for anyone who needs a “scentsual” awakening in the morning; you’ll find yourself looking forward to your daily showers and making time for baths too.
