This is a great shower gel/body wash. It is not drying or overly moisturizing. It lathers enough (not too much). I feel good when I am using it. And, I am able to get a close shave on my legs. I really like the fragrance layering sets because the scents are soft. I have used the Inner Grace and the Amazing Grace. To my nose, the Amazing Grace has a soft floral scent to it. Very nice, not overpowering. I am ordering a whole kit. Trying this and inner grace makes me want to try Pure Grace and Baby Grace. Especially since Philosphy is having a 20% off right now on their website.
I got a deluxe sample (30 day supply) of this shower gel/shampoo. As a shampoo, I love it, It left my hair manageable, shiny and soft. My hair smelled fresh and clean, such a lovely scent to the hair. As a showergel, it works great, lathered up fast and suds were very bubbly. It rinsed off well, and my skin stayed soft I didnt even need lotion afterwards. I have not tried the real EDT or EDP, but I love the scent of this amazing grace showergel/shampoo product. reminds me of Victoria Secret's Heavenly or Divine with a bit of more vanilla in it. Very lovely scent. (however, cannot purchase this as a shampoo, I use nioxin which helps with thinning hair, and even though this smelled good, I dont think it would help with volume, so my HG is still nioxin. I'm keeping this rating at 5 because its not philophy's fault).
I love the smell. It's hard to describe the smell but it's very feminine and soft. I know there's the 32? ounce size but I wouldn't buy more than a 16 oz size since the smell does tend to fade when I reach the bottom of the bottle. It makes my hair soft and fluffy, and my skin smells good and is soft. I love this product, it's a keeper for me.
I do LOVE the smell of this but I wouldn't buy this again for a few reasons.
1) Paying over $20 for soap! It's soap!
2) It's OK as a shampoo but not the best.
3) The bottle is hard and you can't squeeze every last drop out.
4) It didn't agree w/ certain parts of my body-nuff said.
Pricey for shower gel, but I love th scent and it makes my AG cologe "go further". Love the way it makes the bathroom smell. And I get lots of of compliments on how good I smell.
Pros: Smells great. Skin feels clean and soft. Works well as a shampoo.
Con: Too pricey for a soap
As a shampoo-- Yes, it is very sudsy and my hair felt clean but it also made my hair dry & tangled up.I won't use this again as a shampoo.
As a Bath & Shower gel--It is again very sudsy & moisturizing. But, it is also comparable to other shower gels that I've used, so nothing special here for me.
As for the scent, I find it to be floral & musky but lasted only as I rinse. I'm not a fan of the scent. I prefer Pure Grace. I got this at the Nordstrom Anniv.Sale for $50 together with the lotion--each at 32 oz.
Overall, it is just an ok shower gel for me. I won't repurchase.
I don't know if it is just my bottle since everyone seems to love the smell but I actually really hate it. It's really musky to me but maybe that's the smell it was going for? I bought this about 3 yrs ago and I really hated it. I stopped using it because the smell made me sick. I know most people like to use this as a body wash and not really for the hair and I didn't use it for my hair 3 yrs either but recently the ladys at sephora gave me a sample of a different 3 in1 sephora shampoo/shower gel and I used it on my hair and to my surprise it made my hair really shiny. ^_^lll so I took my amazing grace bottle and tried it on my hair the next time I showered and my hair was really shiny again. So I think I actually prefer this as a shampoo then the body wash. ^_^ Still hate the smell but it doesn't bother me as much anymore, or maybe I am used to the smell now. I don't use it everyday though.
This is a wonderful product and nice to have a few options with it. It leaves the nice Amazing Grace Fragrance without being too overpowering and had wonderful suds! I would highly recommend it for anyone who is a fan of the Amazing Grace line.
Love this product because you can use it for shampoo, bath and shower gel. It also smells great without being to heavy. The price is a great deal compared to all other products in department stores. Philosophy is the least exspensive compared to other brands.
