philosophy: the natural aging process causes the soft tissues of our faces and bodies to begin to descend. our eyebrows frown, our lids droop, our eyes appear hollow, our noses and ears larger, and our jawbone is less defined. as for our breasts, bellies, and our buttocks, it's no different. we can fight the process or we can yield to losing our bodies, gaining our souls, and finding our grace.

Customer Rating: Summary: Reminds you of a Day at the Beach! Comment: Nowadays we hear a lot about feeling good on the inside. And, I'm all about happiness from within. In this case it's found within a box, a bottle, a tube, oh and a jar! I'm talking about one of my FAVORITE bath and beauty brands, "PHILOSOPHY" ! Ironic since philosophy is one of my favorite subjects to read, discuss, or ponder. And now I love to submerse my entire body in it!
While PHILOSOPHY has hundreds of products that cover skincare, makeup, and bath...my favorite PHILOSPHY product, by far, is "Amazing Grace". Wow, just thinking about it makes me swoon! Yeah, that's right, I'm in LOVE with it. The name itself envokes the wonderment of effortless beauty and charm, and that my friends is what it smells like.
Let's see, how can I best describe the fragrance? Hmmmm....the scent of Amazing Grace is like the beat of a drum off into the distance...you hear it gently, it peaks your interest, as you get closer to the sound it makes you want to sway to the beat, and by the time you're up on it, it overwhelms your senses. Some say it reminds them of a day on the beach, but mostly, I've been told that it is intoxicating......Translate that into a smell and you've got it! It is fresh, subtly sweet, with a delicate hint of musk.
The line has approximately 11 items in it: perfumed firming body emulsion, hand cream, perfume, oil, combination shower gel/shampoo, bubble bath, hair conditioner, soap, body splash, and there use to be a small tin that was a wax like substance. However, I have not seen that product in some time. Shame because it was great!
Now the only product that I do NOT like in the line is the salt scrub! Something was lost in translation on this one. It smells nothing like Grace!
Now, if you've never experienced Philosophy's Amazing Grace there is one place you can try it out. Take a little field trip to your closest Sephora. Sephora, a retailer that carries hundreds of beauty lines, is a great place to purchase Philosophy. There you can sample the product and make purchases in smaller quantities if you wish. But TRUST me. Once you've tried it, you'll want to get the big gulp size!
P.S. Amazon.com can sometimes have great deals on Philosophy as well! Check them out! Customer Rating: Summary: amazing scent Comment: A friend of mine noticed the 'scent' I was wearing and all I had on was the amazing grace body firming emulsion. The scent makes me feel good.. as crazy as that sounds. I bought this one for her as a gift. Customer Rating: Summary: My biggest beauty splurge!!! Comment: This lotion I use everyday and have for a couple of years now and I LOVE it. This product plus a few other little additions fragrance wise and I am telling you I get stopped in public constantly with people telling me how good I smell! The gyno even commented!!!! I love for several reasons the smell is strong enough to be noticed but not overwhelming. I can't do floral type fragrances because I will get a migraine. This is perfectly fabulous! Customer Rating: Summary: Really too much hype!! Comment: If you really want to know how this smells, go to a drug store or Wal-Marts and smell the old fragrance Jean Nate'. It's a light version of this. I haven't noticed anything really different about the moisturizing qualities. It's just ok. I've only used it for about 1 month now..so far, I'm not impressed by smell or quality. Customer Rating: Summary: I'm addicted Comment: I will be purchasing this item for as long as I can. First, the smell is wonderful. My boyfriend commented on that immediately. Secondly, I noticed a difference in my face in about 2 weeks. I have noticed slight differences on my body, but mostly in my face. I use it daily, at least once and sometimes twice. Alot goes a long way though. I noticed I don't use as much of this as I did my regular lotion. I'm very happy with this purchase!!!
