One glance at the packaging, a slight sniff of the scent and there is no doubt that Gilchrist & Soames Bath & Body line is sophisticated, refined and fit for royalty; indeed Gilchrist & Soames was established in London, England in 1975.

I was able to try some of the products in their best selling London Line including London Shower Gel, London Body Wash, Shampoo and Conditioner. The London Collection from Gilchrist & Soames’ Signature Formulations, contains no parabens, phthalates, petrol-derived ingredients, mineral oil, urea, DEA, TEA or propylene glycol. They do contain food-grade, naturally derived USP glycerin and natural conditioning agents from honey and the brassica plant. The company is  also committed to cruelty-free development and vow to never test their products on animals.

Press Sample


London Shower Gel ($16)

Sophistication and style are encapsulated in a complete package of understated elegance; crisp, clean and luxurious. Antioxidant-rich botanicals of red tea, soy, ginkgo biloba, grape seed and milk thistle, renowned for their beneficial attributes, combine in a dynamic blend to restore and revive.


This luxurious shower gel provides excellent hydration and a luscious lather complete with nutrient-rich oils, humectants and emollients to heal and protect the skin, leaving it smooth and silky. The scent is very upscale and spa-like: one part fresh, one part zesty and one part botanical. I can even attest to the healing properties. My feet are terribly, disgustingly dry and I haven’t time for a pedicure in weeks so I scrubbed them with Gilchrist & Soames London Shower Gel in the shower and the day they were soft and the dry patches much improved–I didn’t even put lotion on them!

  • Antioxidant rich formulation
  • Great for shower or bath use
  • Contains botanicals of red tea, soy, ginkgo biloba, grape seed and milk thistle
  • Leaves skin refreshed and moisturized all day
  • Crisp, clean fragrance
  • Paraben and phthalate free


London Body Lotion ($16) 

This rich yet fast-absorbing formulation provides instant hydration with nutrient-rich oils, humectants and emollients to heal and protect the skin. Again, the scent is what you expect to find in a top notch world-class five star resort–you know the kind where you steal all the toiletries the first day and hope they replenish so you can steal them again the next day? London Body Lotion absorbs lightening quick and leaves skin soft as a lamb.  It’s very lightweight yet the hydration lasts into the next day–perfect for summer!!

  • Antioxidant rich formulation
  • Contains botanicals of red tea, soy, ginkgo biloba, grape seed and milk thistle
  • Leaves skin moisturised all day
  • Crisp, clean fragrance
  • Paraben and phthalate free


Hair – London Shampoo ($16) also sold in a shampoo/conditioner duo for $29


This rich formulation provides superior lather and gentle cleansing, leaving your hair shiny and full of life. Can’t believe how bright and shiny my hair was after shampooing with London Shampoo! My hair feels clean but this is a very gentle formula which works great for my fine hair.

  • Antioxidant-rich formulation
  • Superior lather and gentle cleansing
  • Leaves hair shiny and full of life


London Conditioner ($16) – also sold in a shampoo/conditioner duo for $29

Infused with moisturizing emollients, London conditioner nourishes and strengthens hair, leaving it healthy, silky and full of body. A little dab will do ya! London conditioner is lightweight enough even for my fine tangled hair! I’m loving that it doesn’t weigh my hair down so I can style it.

  • Antioxidant-rich formulation is light, yet thoroughly moisturizing
  • Contains botanicals of red tea, soy, ginkgo biloba, grape seed and milk thistle
  • Leaves hair shiny and full of life

 Gilchrist & Soames’ can be purchased at, Birchbox and Amazon.

Bottom Line: While we may not be of royal blood, we can still treat ourselves like princesses with the The London Collection from Gilchrist & Soames’!

    It looks very elegant

  • Nidia – Lit From Within

    I have a lotion sample from one of the sub boxes. The lotion is nice, but the packaging was a little ridiculous. A wide-mouth tube – too long to use as a jar, and the lotion was too thick to pour smoothly. It was like watching ketchup pour out of the glass bottles in ye olden days of yore.

    • cindy

      That’s why I love the spray–so easy!

    I’ve been really into luxury body products since I’ve been pregnant. I will definitely have to check these out.
