Last year I got a deal on 'Snow Angel' body wash and I loved it. Recently Philosophy had a sale with free extras and I got the Pure Grace body wash. It is very nice - smells clean but the smell doesn't last to me. I also ordered the Fresh Cream body wash and am hoping I will like it.

The body washes lather well and they don't dry out my skin. Keep an eye out for a good deal - not sure I would pay full price for it.

The Grace fragrances and associated products are not heavily scented, and the scent does fade fairly quickly.

Before Coty purchased Philosophy, the scents were long lasting. Sadly, not so much now. Layering the scented products helps.

I use two of their moisturizers, and mix them in with Peter Thomas Roth Products--my skin has been awesome, since I've been doing this.

Their Renewed Hope in A Jar with SPF is my daytime and the Renewed Hope in A Jar Nightime cream are my go-tos. One of my friends was visiting and she had forgotten her moisturizer and fell in love with mine.

Just bought Purity body, I already like it. I found this at Marshall's it was $20 for the 32oz. They didn't have a large selection of Philosophy products, however, I liked what they had. They probably only get a small amount of this line in at a time and it sells quickly.

This makes a really nice gift for the hard to buy for person.

Ive been using the Amazing Grace lotion for years. In fact, quit wearing any other lotions/perfumes two years ago and stick to only this one. I've always gotten tons of compliments on the scent. I work 12 hour shifts and am always surprised when people comment how nice I smell near the end of my day!

* Caswell-Massey Sandalwood Lotion
* Fruit of the Earth Gentle Healing Vitamin E Skin Care Lotion
* Gold Bond Ultimate Daily Moisturizing with Vitamin E take a look and like me you thought some were harmless or at best full of good things,,,, not Im afraid, Now because I have an illness to perfumed products, I would have gone for the Keri as its fragrance free, but its not the fragrance, its synthetic fragrances and what they contain thats the problem. Please check out what your putting on your body. I have been looking for unperfumed products for years now and found that I still felt ill when I used them not knowing why... now I do and avoid them. How these things get passed by regulators is beyond me.

Shame on the FDA.

Shame is too mild a word, its criminal what their letting through for us to plaster on our faces, without knowledge of the contents, I spoke to a friend in Scotland whos brother is a well known scientist in Australia and I asked her to ask him about formaldehyde in household cleaning products and in some makeups and face creams, She came back with this answer. Bob my brother says that they amount of formaldehyde and other ingredients in creams and washing up liquid etc is so minimal that they cant possibly harm us..... and she ended, And dont forget hes a cosmetic firm scientist,,, I laughed and said to her,,, Oh is that so, then why are my eyes affected so badly , I take headaches and feel sick with some makeup and creams Ive used over the years not to mention household cleaning stuff......She said....Oh thats just you, although my lips break out and burn with Revlon lipstick, but my brother said its not a real burn and will heal , not to worry....... I hope your all laughing, at Prof, Crackpot. and his even dafter sister taking this in...this is the type of people who are making some of this junk for companies with fancy packaging and even fancier prices... for us to cause harm to ourselves. Another scientist had the cheek to say that creams dont get ingested into our bodies and only sit on top of our skin, what a silly comment from a silly man.
