Philosophy Peppermint Hot Cocoa

I have had this shower gel for a very long time (2 years) but only opened it up last month as I have been using various other bath/shower products! I love the packaging that this bottle came in... So Christmassy! So onto the shower gel itself... :)

What's in it and what does it do?
The ingredients list is very foreign to me but you can find it here if you're interested. Just like VBC this feels slightly greasy after washing it off but it does leave my skin soft like it says it will! I am guessing that all their shower gels are like this, so if you like the squeaky-clean fresh feeling you may want to try a smaller bottle or avoid this one.

How much and for how long?
I got this for $16 back in 2009 but I believe their shower gels are still $16 in the USA but £14-19 in the UK (lovely). The bottles are pretty big though - 480ml for these large ones. I don't think this is available in the UK but I think this may be available in the USA still!

How does it smell?
Just like the description/name says, a hot chocolate with peppermint undertones! Initially you just smell the cocoa but after creating lather, which is very easy to do, the peppermint comes through very nicely. The scent doesn't linger at all so you don't need to worry about it getting too sickly!

Other comments:
Would I buy it again? As nice as it is and as much as I love the outer packaging, I prefer Vanilla Birthday Cake... And so I probably won't buy this specific one again.
Would I recommend it? If chocolate shower gels are your thing, then you'll love this!
