in Shower Gels & Lotions

philip b chocolate body washbuy-buttonToday I’m feeling cold and cranky. Summer is definitely over (well what little summer we did have on these fabulous British Isles). I’m listening to Sunlight by DJ Sammy and all that is doing is making me wish I could chuck my job in and move to the Balearics and get a bar job. I’ve never worked in a bar or been to the Balearics but I’m sure I’d be happy. When I was a teenager I hated the sun and warmth. I was happy to mope around wearing Cure t-shirts and black combat boots.  Now a bit older I realise that the sun provides us with sanity. And so does chocolate. However whilst the sun doesn’t make you gain weight, chocolate can if consumed in great quantities. Unless you are one of those irritating people who can eat whatever they want and never gain weight. I can wholeheartedly say I am not one of those people. So how can you have some chocolate without gaining weight or feeling guilty for having it? I think Philip B has the answer.

How to use

Philip B in case in you didn’t know is a US Hair Stylist/Guru and hair care products with botanicals enthusiast. He has since moved to products for the body as well. I have say that chocolate body washes aren’t anything new. I’ve used quite a few in my day so I was curious to see if this one would be the same as the others, just shower gel with a sugary smell that doesn’t last. Well the first thing that most people do when you get a product like this is stick your nose halfway down the bottle to see what is smells like as that is the main focus. Amazingly it does smell like chocolate milk. The scent isn’t synthetic or sugary smelling at all. I should mention at this point I wasn’t the first person in my house to use it. TOH* helped himself the day after I got it. He was quite happy with it and he is a chocolate milk connoisseur. So when he was finished I had a go and was more than pleased and surprised even. You don’t need much to get a good lather which made me feel happier as it is on the pricier side of shower gel land. The smell does envelope you and on rubbish cold rainy day like today it’s the perfect antidote. My skin always feels warm and cosy after I use it. Definitely a great choice when us girls have the decorators in! wink wink

Now the bottle itself is fairly inconspicuous however just to show (unfortunately) what kind of lawsuit/litigation world we live in it does has a red band around the bottle saying ‘For External Use Only’, ‘Do Not Eat’, and ‘Do Not Drink’. I assume this is to prevent The Simpsons’ Lionel Hutz type lawyers of the world from bringing a claim against Philip B (after some idiot drinks said shower gel thinking it to be real chocolate milk) and exclaims to the court: ‘This is the greatest case of false advertising I’ve seen since I sued the movie The Never Ending Story’.

This is definitely a fabulous solution to the chocolate without weight gain issue now I have to find a place to hide it  from *TOH and anyone who comes to visit. Who shares their chocolate anyway?
