I don't love this, but I don't hate it either. I really like the scent, but it fades really quickly. I only use it as a body wash as I CO-wash my naturally curly hair. It's not very moisturizing, but no worse than other body washes I've used. It's too pricy for me. I'll get the lotion next time because the scent lasts a while.
OK so maybe I'm the only one that does not get the hype around these expensive Philosophy shower gels! This was my second bottle (both gifts) and my first issues is the amount wasted because they do not lather up on a wash cloth or in running water for a bubble bath (i guess they are intended to work with those bath puffs). The smell of all the "Grace's" is old lady pleasant (or food) but fortunately it doesn't linger and interfere with my perfume. It dries out my skin so I would not dare use this on my hair. I ended up putting it in my hand soap dispenser. I simply don't get it and will NOT purchase any and hopefully will not recieve another as a gift.
I've had the 16 oz. bottle for a while and I've barely put a dent in it. I love the way it smells, so clean, so light, so feminine.
The reason why it takes trips in and out of my shower is b/c I had originally bought it to use as a shampoo...forget that idea! My hair felt like straw as I was trying to lather it up. It gave me no moisture and I had to keep adding more to get my hair bubbly. I had to use a heavy mask treatment to soften up my mangled mess.
As a shower gel it dries my skin therefore I only bring it out in the warmer months to wash away those hot summer days and have that great scent on my skin which I layer with the perfumed body emulsion.
Overall, the scent is what wins me over but I cannot give a good review when it comes to the result. As for the bottle I think a pump would make it a whole lot easier as the bottle itself is bulky and slippery to hold in the shower.
I got a massive bottle of this as a present and I was pretty happy as I love the Grace fragrances!
I have only used this as a shower gel - I would be worried about using it as a shampoo as I have highlighted hair and I am not convinced of any product that says it is a shower gel AND a shampoo?!?
It makes me feel squeaky clean, the scent is gorgeous and it leaves a lovely fragrance on my skin - a lovely treat!
I love this scent, but I am not sure I will ever repurchase. The product is versatile, but to be honest I am not sure I how I feel about it as a shampoo. I did not read the other reviews, but my theory is that it will probably strip your hair...just my opinion. I do love to use it in the morning, in hopes that the scent will longer throughout the day. The staying power of the scent has not been so lasting for me. I know it is not a spray, but I have a hard time seeing the purpose of a scent if it does not last. Some people may not like the scent...a friend told me she hated it and that it was too "mature" for me...but whatever, I will smell how I want to smell lol. The product did not last forever, but that is probably my fault. I guess I just felt that I needed a lot of product at once. I really like it, but I would not repurchase because it is expensive, does not last and has ingredients in it that I stay away from nowadays.
This is a great shower gel. I like the smell, although it is not super strong but just enough. And it leaves my skin pretty smooth. It is a bit pricey, but I try to use it sparingly and will continue to repurchase.
Price is high! It is a great shower gel and shampoo, but a mediocre bubble bath. It made my hair and skin super soft and smells GREAT! I just do not know if the product is worth the price.
I finally purchased the Amazing Grace 3 in 1! I have had a mini sample forever and have loved it since I first sampled it. It's such a nice scent. It's very feminine and light--just perfect for everday. I don't know how to describe the scent except to say that it's a very soft and clean scent and maybe a bit powdery. It stays on my skin and lasts throughout the day which is unlike the other 3 in 1's. The only thing that I don't like about it is that it's a bit drying. I would love if it was moisturizing but it's not. Otherwise, I love Amazing Grace and I will repurchase once my huge bottle runs out!
I personally am not a fan of this scent. I do recommend that you smell this scent before you buy any Grace products. That is what killed it for me. Now getting passed the scent, the shower scrub is a nice product. It is full of beads and is a little rough on your skin, so you feel clean when you're done showering. I wouldn't buy Grace again just because I dislike the scent. I would love to try another product in a different scent though.
This is my favorite Philosophy scent, and I really enjoy using it when I feel depressed or sad because it makes me feel better It's just a really clean, very light floral. It is absolutely wonderful. I feel it is moisturizing and cleans very well, and I would most definitely repurchase this, and and other forms of this fragrance. I tried it as a shampoo once, and it did an okay job. Later in the day, the back of my head felt really gunky, so I don't think I would ever use the 3-in-1s as shampoo again.
