I am always told you smell so good. What is it that you are wearing? I tell them Pure Grace by Philosophy!
I have been seeing influencers talk about this philosophy line on and off for over a year. I got really curious and nearly bought it several times, but always ducked out because of the price. I haven't been shopping in person this entire pandemic (added to this is lack of childcare and my disinterest in shopping for myself with my young kids who do not have the patience to wait for me to smell things or try them on). I was relying pretty heavily on customer reviews and peer feedback. I had seen a few people say it smells of sunscreen, but thought they were outweighed by the positive reviews, so I dismissed them. But it does. It smells of sunscreen. Cheap, drug store sun screen. I washed my hair and body with the body wash and followed up with the lotion. I kept pulling my shirt over my nose to smell throughout the day, hoping I would pick up something pleasant once it had been on my body a while. Something clean. Powdery, even. But it smells like sunscreen in the bottle and on the body. I'll give the lotion the recognition of being very thick and creamy. So it feels good on the skin. But I splurged for a perfumed body wash and lotion set largely because I hoped it would have this lovely scent people rave about. I've used and enjoyed many of Philosophy's other products. But one brand can't do everything and expect to do it all well. I'll reserve my future fragrance purchases for dedicated perfumers from now on. This is what I feel about this product and its popularity: according to a Google search it launched in 2003. A lot of young women bought it and associated it with their teen/college memories. Maybe anything smells clean when you're in a high school locker room or college dorm. I don't know. But happy memories and spring break trips became mentally tied to this scent; and now these women - in their late 30s and early 40s have come back to it over and over again because of memory association. I don't know what else, other than the pleasant memories of an era, could get people to overlook the obvious disappointing chemical odor of discount sunscreen at a premium price. It is the "emperor's clothes" of fragrance. I don't get it. I wanted so, so badly to love this. It is rare some of us treat ourselves to something new, particularly something popular and name brand. My hopes were especially high after using and liking so many other Philosophy skin products. An unscented rich lotion would be better than one reeking of sunblock.

At first, I wasn't really pleased with this skincare set. It comes with a bottle of body wash/shampoo, and a bottle of body lotion. My skin feels very soft and moisturized after using it but there's barely any scent. After using it for a few weeks, I do notice a hint of scent when moving, now and then. I love the scent, though. It reminds me of a very soft Ivory soap. I just wish it was a bit stronger.

I use this clean fragranced lotion and shampoo (Pure Grace) on my 3 yr old grandson and he smells delicious! I like to wash my hands and face with this, as well; then when I go to pet my cat, she smells nice and clean.
I also love Philosophy Sugar Plum Fairy (which I use all year long) even tho it comes out in the Winter. I just make sure I've got enough of these two scents to get me through the year.

Philosophy Pure Grace has been a part of my life gir many years. Love the fragrance and the way it makes my skin feel.

Very basic. The lotion smells like sunscreen to me. The body wash smells like a chemical cleaner rather than a body wash. I wasn't impressed really. Just felt like it got the job done. Not buying again.

How can you not get this if you're a huge fan of this scent? I love having these around to fill up my TSA travel-sized bottles for when I travel.

I'm sooo pleased with the way my body chemistry accepted the scent of Pure Grace. I've gotten so many compliments on smelling so freshly showered all day long!! In the past I really had a hard time finding an eau de parfum that wouldn't smell awful after wearing it for even 10 minutes. Thank you Philosophy, I have found my new scent!

Pure Graze is the only body wash and lotion I use.

Like a fresh spring day after rain, clean laundry and clean soap, Pure Grace is my signature scent.

I am a first time user of this product. I am a true believer that you can get a dud sometimes from any brand that you order...I cannot wear perfumes because my husbands allergies are soooo bad. so I saw this on HSN at a good price... I tried it...love it !!!! so fresh, and clean smelling …my husband tells me how good I smell good :)

I love the clean smell. The velvety rich lather allows a small amount while cleaning from head to toe. Layering with lotion ensures long-lasting fresh fragrance and moisturizing even in humid summer months as it non greasy and soaks in quickly.

So I was so excited to order the Pure Grace. I decided to order the shower gel, lotion and spray oil. I had used the shower gel at my mom's house and couldn't wait to get my set. The shower gel smells pretty good but honey, that dern lotion and spray oil BOTH smell like insect repellant....GROSS!!! Of course, it's too much hassle to send it back so I'm stuck with this stinky stuff. I'll never order again...I'm SO aggravated!!!

Pure Grace is my "go to" fragrance for any occasion. Love the fresh and light soap and water fragrance. Would recommend highly to everyone!
RitaSokolik from Pahrump, Nevada
I have allergies! I cannot wear perfumes. I bought this set hoping I could use it daily. I can! This scent is fresh and clean like the purest soap, fresh out of the shower clean! My husband loves it and I get stopped and told how awesome I smell! I can finally smell wonderful and no allergy reaction! Heavenly!

I got this as a gift for my mom and she LOVES it. My mom has issues so bad with her fingers cracking and bleeding and she has wore bandaids on them EVERY day and no amount of lotion or trying different soaps or anything else helped and since she received this, she has brought it up almost every day and is showing me how it works and even came in my room and said that it may be a good thing for my sister for Christmas since her hands peel so bad from her psoriasis.
