Philosophy Cinnamon Hot Dots Shower Gel Review

Not so long ago in a distant land far, far away...well, ok, maybe it wasn't so far away.

Not so long ago in a land quite close by named Bath and Body Works a Valentine's release of a special 3 in 1 Shower Gel was released entitled Red Hot Love Story!

The Muse remembers the release like it was yesterday and cherishes her excitement upon taking her first sniff of the spicy sweetness that was Red Hot Love Story. Bath and Body Works extended it's popular (and long gone *sniff*) Temptations line up to include the limited edition Red Hot Love Story for Valentine's Day.

Now Red Hot Love Story was truly an interesting little product and the Muse simply loved it. Allow me, if I may, to bestow upon you some mental images to help you understand what it smelled like.

Last year the Muse was able to snag a few bottles of Bath and Body Works Red Hot Love Story at the semi-annual sale for $3 each. I was really dreading the day that I used my last bottle because I sincerely love this.

But good news!

The gods at Philosophy have introduced Cinnamon Hot Dots 3 in 1 Shower Gel! Bless be! Just in time for Valentine's Day too!

It's spicy, it's hot, and it's sweet. What more could a girl ask for? It's an exact dupe of those old fashion Red Hot candies that you loved (or hated) as a child. First sniff hits you with a tingling spicy hotness and a slow sweetness that takes the edge off all that cinnamon! The Muse likes to think of it as ambrosia.

The Muse thought she'd give you a friendly service announcement about the fact that Philosophy Shower Gels can be used as a shampoo, shower gel, and a bubble bath!

Although I'm not big on V-Day I simply adore the novelty of Philosophy Cinnamon Hot Dots and it even puts me in a little bit of a festive mood for hearts, candy, and lurve.

Snag a bottle two for yourself and give a bottle or two to a friend to make their Valentine's Day all the more sweeter!

The Muse Approves spicy, sweet, hotness from Philosophy!

Loves it?

Leaves it?

Do you like the scent of red hots?

Tell the Muse!

Grab it now at Sephora!

Just got back from Sephora's little skincare consult day (bought the new Philosophy Acne kit... I'm a sucker for retinol!) and did a double take at the Philosophy Bath display...

OMG! I sniffed this bad boy... and I will be throwing down the $16 to pick it up. I've been hoarding my last bottle of Temptations RHLS, but now I don't have to!!! I do have to say though, that the Philosophy version is spicier than the BBW one... and I think I like it better! :)

Have you sniffed the Red Licorice Gelee? Smells EXACTLY like Strawberry Twizzlers! I'm gonna have to get the lip gloss in it as well as the Gelee!

I miss Bath and Body Works Temptations too. Philosophy is good, but they'd be even better if they had an iced tea one. lol
