Beauty Booty: Philosophy Beach Girl

by Rachel on August 12, 2010

You know I don’t shower with guys, but let’s say I changed my mind.

Let’s just forget about my hair rules for the time being, and, for the sake of this story, imagine a guy and me in a situation where we were so hot, so sticky, and so defeated by the Southern heat and humidity, that the only good date option was simply taking a shower. Let’s pretend that could actually happen.

If that happened, my main objective (besides not getting my hair wet) would be finding a really yummy shower gel that both me and the guy could share. After all, I love things that smell good, but I really like smelling like a girl. If I were going to shower with a guy, I would want something that smelled good but a little more unisex.

If I were in that situation, I would suggest that as soon as we finish attempting (and failing) to cool off with fro yo, we head over to Sephora and pick out something yummy to go home and get clean with.

And then I’d probably buy this.

Obviously, I am not someone you’d think of as a beach girl. But according to the bottle, beach girls make time to play. I do, in fact, do that. I also laugh as I splash around (although I’m using “splash” more in a metaphorical sense here, again, due to my hair).

And when it comes to play (using “play” in the sexual sense here, due to my, um, personality) you couldn’t choose a better bottle of body wash. I mean, if you’re going to take a bath with a guy and get all sensual and such and then go off and make love, I’m sure there’s some really intense and passionate body wash out there. But if you’re going to splash and play, then I think you might want something light, bright, bubbly, slippery, and smelling delicious. This smells like orange sherbet — you really can’t go wrong there.

Also, I’m loathe to shave with soap and water, but this is good for shaving, and it works as a shampoo and conditioner, so you could pack a light gym or overnight bag and pat yourself on the back for being so super low-maintenance. Those are all good reasons to buy it even if you’re splashing alone or playing with a removable shower head.

This is all hypothetical, of course. Like I said, I don’t shower with guys.

LMAO Love it! I am kind of surprised you could drag Eric into Sephora — usually guys are like “uhhh I’ll just wait out here.” Sephora actually used to make the PERFECT unisex body wash called citrus sage — it was a little woodsy, a little citrusy (but more lemon than orange) and perfect…until they discontinued it. :/ Maybe check Amazon?

Some of my top beauty loves in the world is Sephora and Philosophy. I have Philosophy’s cinnamon bun in my shower right now. I actually love Beach Girl scent but didn’t buy it last time I was there. I ended up getting the Pineapple Coconut. Yummm!

I actually don’t like orange smelling things, but luckily this is only a hypothetical and you and Eric don’t ACTUALLY smell like orange sherbet.
