I LOVE mint chocolate chip ice cream, and this does smell like it. However, it's a rather odd scent to shower with. Not awful, just odd. It does make a nice lather, and I'll finish the bottle. Some food scents work: lime, and believe it or not, black licorice, my favorite. But even for a fan of the ice cream, this might be disappointing.
This product smells wonderful and cleans my hair thoroughly but gently. The kids love it too. The scent does not linger afterward. Besides the three suggested uses the gel also works well as a shaving lotion.
This is my second favorite Philosophy soap. Gingerbread Man is essential and I keep it on hand all the time but chocolate mint comes in a close second. For some reason I usually buy it around the holidays. This is another Philosophy product that makes lots of bubbles in the bath and the scent is pure luxury. The scent is very true to mint chocolate.
