Gilchrist & Soames

Birchbox Breakdown

Our bathrooms at home may not have the fancy accoutrements of a 5-star hotel (the whirlpool jets, for one, are conspicuously absent). But there’s no reason why we can’t have the same bath and body products. Gilchrist & Soames gives you a taste of the high life with this decadent shower gel. The botanical-rich formula moisturizes skin while it cleanses, and the light, crisp scent lingers long after you’ve toweled off.

How it Works

This luxurious cleanser is packed with antioxidant-rich botanicals like red tea, soy, ginkgo biloba, grape seed, and milk thistle. Naturally derived glycerin and honey provide instant moisture, with a hydrating boost from brassica plant extract. Always cruelty-free, this formula comes to you free of parabens, phthalates, petrol-derived ingredients, mineral oil, urea, DEA, TEA, and propylene glycol.

How to Use

Massage generously into damp skin. Rinse away.

Meh ...

I am not a fan of shower gels as a rule, and this was nothing special at all. I didn't feel that it was very thick and didn't seem to get very 'lathery' at all. After using, I felt I needed to go back to my moisturizing beauty bar to feel clean. The scent was ok, not great, not bad and I didn't feel that it was very moisturizing either.

Love it. This soap smells so awesome. I researched it and bought everything after I used it in the shower. The soap looks so classy even as a sample.

I love the subtle and floral scent of this body wash!! I had never heard of Gilchrist & Soames before I received a sample in my Birchbox, but I certainly know them now. I love the way this body
wash goes on thick, washes off smooth, and the scent stays on your skin. It smells SOOO good. I love this product!

I did not like this product at all. It may have been primarily because the scent was awful. It did not moisturize as promised and left my skin smelling bad.

Not my taste

I wasn't personally a fan of the scent. It seemed sort of medicinal. As far as it's cleansing qualities it worked fine. Not something I would be likely to buy.

Standard Body Wash

I like a more moisturizing body wash, so this one was just average as far as I could tell. Does the trick, but not especially great.

I love getting soaps in my Birchbox. My only wish is that the sample is larger! This soap lathers well and smells great!

Smelled great, but nothing really stood out to me as far as shower gels go. I probably won't be purchasing this product.

Smells great and has great lather, but it's basically just shower gel. Great to use for travel, but my normal shower gel works just fine. It didnt feel very moisturizing but I did feel clean!

Has a nice light scent, and gets me clean. I wouldn't go out of my way to purchase it, but I enjoyed using it.
