The Philosophy line is without a doubt the best all around beauty line.  I am 52 years old and use all Philosophy products head to toe.  There hair care line - Shear Splendor - is the best I've ever used, and I worked as a hairdresser for 10 years.  There skincare line is phenomenal, and at a fraction of the cost I used to spend for department store A line cosmetics.  I find there Supernatural foundation to give a slightly better finish than BE.  Be sure to use the Supernatural SPF15 foundation primer for protection and flawless skin.  Now, the fragrences!  They are the absolute best!  Not overpowering, yet I'll be at work 6 hours after applying and someone will do a double take and come back and see if it's me that smells so good and I can't smell a thing!  I love the Amazing Grace fragrance.  My daughter lives the Pure Grace fragrance which gives you a clean, fresh soap and water smell.  My step daughter loves Falling in Love, which is a sweeter fragrance. There is also Baby Grace, Inner Grace and Philosophy the fragrance as well as a wealth of yummy body washes.  If my 2 girls don't get their Philosophy for birthdays and Christmas I think they'd cry!  Try this line.  You will not be sorry!

My daughter doesn't know it but my curiosity got the best of me. She received a basketful of "Philosophy" products as a gift. While she was at work one day, I just gave in to the temptation of finding out what all the hype was about concerning these products. I used the Bubble Bath and dabbled here and there with other skin care products and for the life of me, I could find no reason to find that kind of money on this. I know the young people love Philosophy and yet I believe there are much better skin products out there that don't cost half as much. I think age has to do with it. If I was in a position not to have to worry about bills and other responsibilities would I buy it? No. I just did not like any of their items. Of course, I did not use any of the skin care products on a long term basis. Perhaps they really work after a length of time. The bubble bath was like gooey syrup and didn't even has a pleasant scent.

AH-mazing!

Comments about Philosophy Skin Care & Cosmetics - All Products:

I've tried tons of their products and they never disappoint. I have very sensitive skin and none of their products make me break out or itch! The shower gels and bubble bath combo's smell divine! It is somewhat expensive, but worth the cost! If your looking for a good facial cleanser this brand has the best! Even though it may be a little costly just a little bit of their product goes a long way!

Philosophy...clean subtle skin and body care

Comments about Philosophy Skin Care & Cosmetics - All Products:

I have been using philosophy for several years and have not used one product that I don't like. I have used lip products, cleansers, and several products from the scented lines. Have you ever had someone walk by you that was wearing so much or so strong a perfume that you could taste it long after they walked away from you? That won't happen with these scents. I use baby grace and falling in love and they have a clean lingering scent that is not noticeable to someone walking by use at a distance, but if you are close to someone that may notice it, but it will be a subtle scent not overpowering or obnoxious. LOVE this brand!

Philosophy Bubbles Never End!

By 

from Glen Burnie, MD

Comments about Philosophy Skin Care & Cosmetics - All Products:

I absolutely love Philosophy Bubble Bath/Shower Gel. You don't need to use very much and it makes a multitude of bubbles and they last until the end of your bath. The fragrances are all lovely. I have favorites, but I don't think I've found one that I absolutely dislike. This product costs more than your regular run-of-the-mill bath product but it is worth every cent because you need to use less. I think you can also use it as a hair conditioner but I have never tried that. It is also great to use on one of those fluffy net puffs in the shower. I can't believe the suds that it makes. I find whatever way I use this product it gives me a very relaxing and satisfying experience. They also have seasonal scents which I find very appealing. They have them for Christmas. They have them for the summer. They have them for the fall, etc. I particularly like the Christmas scents which bring back bunches of happy memories!

Shower Gel/Bubble Bath All Hype, Not Worth The Money

By 

from USA

Comments about Philosophy Skin Care & Cosmetics - All Products:

I am greatly disappointed with Philosophy products right now. I received the I THINK YOU ARE WONDERFUL BATH GEL SET, MANDARIN ORANGE & CHERRY as a gift this year and 1) the Mandarin Orange gel doesn’t smell like orange. It smells more like chocolate then orange and 2) both the Mandarin Orange & Cherry gels do not bubble much. In fact, I use them exclusively as bubble bath and the bubbles disappear almost immediately as does the scent.

I've always heard their products were the best in scented bubble bath/shower gels, but I got more bubbles/scent from a cheap Wal-Mart brand.

Now, I’ve only tried their bath products this once so maybe I got a bad batch, but honestly, if I had bought this set for myself, I would want my money back (& since it’s a gift I can’t return it.)

I can only hope their other bath products have more long lasting bubbles & scent.

So think twice about spending big money on bubble bath/shower gels.

The best skincare line out there!

By 

from Birmingham, AL

Comments about Philosophy Skin Care & Cosmetics - All Products:

The philosophy skincare line is very light and quick and easy to do in the morning and night. The lotions, facewash and serums are great.  The price is affordable and the best part is sephora gives free samples!  So you can try many of the different types of the philosophy brand name.

Philosophy

By 

from Bayville, NJ

Comments about Philosophy Skin Care & Cosmetics - All Products:

My review is mainly about Philosophy Microdelivery Peel, althouth I like other Philosophy products too. The Microdelivery Peel is an excellent facial exfoliant product that I use a few times a month to keep my face feeling completely smooth and soft. It works better than any other exfoliant product I have ever tried. I don't have sensitive skin so I can't say how it would work for people who do have sensitive skin. It's so efficient, that it might be too harsh for somebody with sensitive skin. I can't say for sure. I do know I LOVE the way my skin looks and feels after using it. And I know that a little goes a long way. Even though it seems expensive, it lasts a long time so the price is worth it!

Philosophy..its a miracle!

By 

from Vista, CA

Comments about Philosophy Skin Care & Cosmetics - All Products:

I am a teen and like any teenager i have an acne problem and it was really reeeeaally bad. So like anybody who wanted to fix this problem i tried a million things starting from prescribed treatments costing 200 bucks to over the counter stuff such as Neutrogena hreee step system to Proactive. I was trying proactive when my sister decided to take me to a stand in the mall for philosophy. The person helping me told me what skin type i had and she put stuff on my face as she told me what it would do to my face(ON a clear day acne system) I had come straight from school to the mall so my face wasnt looking that great since that day i had p.e. When i sat down on the chair "Kelly" provided for me my face was red and swollen, when i got up, my face was actually pale!!! and it felt soo smooth! I got really excited and was willing to buy the whole system on the spot but she told me to wait it out and see if it works well. A week later I come back even more excited than before with half the amount of pimples on my face. THis system is great and makes your skin feel extremely healthy. It may be a little bit pricey but its cheaper on their website and youll get free shipping, also Its completely worth it!!!

My fountain of youth!

By 

from Belleville, IL

Comments about Philosophy Skin Care & Cosmetics - All Products:

I have been using the Philosophy line for almost 10 years now.

I started with Hope in a Jar and was so very impressed with it after just one use that I ordered more and begain using the entire line of Makeup is Optional Skincare. I have always been impressed with how Philosophy's product work. They do what they say they will do.

Makeup is an option for me. And I love that. I also love the 3 in 1's. The shampoo, shower gel and bubble baths. They come in such an array of scents, there really is something for everyone. They are designed to smell intense in the shower, to give you a fun and satisfying scensory experience and yet they don't linger on your skin, so they don't get in the way of your fragrance.

The body butters are awesome. Truly the best I have ever used. So rich, get not greasy. The body butters abosrb quickly and leave your skin feeling just amazing.

I do like the various Grace scents, and I am far from an old lady. They have a place in my fragrance wardrobe.

I also need to say, that while I use the Philosophy skincare consistently, being a product junkie I do try other things. One of the nice things about the Philosophy skincare line is it works with other products.

philosophy is one of the most consistently good brands

By 

from Lake City, FL

Comments about Philosophy Skin Care & Cosmetics - All Products:

I've been using philosophy for several years now, and have never been disappointed with a product. The purity made simple cleanser is really great, especially for my dry and sensitive skin. It leaves it feeling perfectly balanced, and all I need after is a moisturizer. My favorite products have pretty much always been the three-in-one shampoo, shower gel, and bubble bath. They come in any number of amazing scents, which are constantly (and also seasonally) updated, and most of them come with a corresponding recipe on the bottle. For example, I'm currently using the red velvet cake, and the bottle has philosophy's recipe for red velvet cake on it. It's gentle but effect, richly moisturizing, and greeeat smelling. I really only use it as a shampoo when absolutely necessary, because my hair is easily damaged and tends to need more nourishment. However, it's the absolute only body wash I use, and I frequently use it instead of shaving cream. Also, it lasts forever. Overall, it's a company that I really respect for it's (pardon the pun) philosophy, and also it's minimalist packaging - there's far too much waste elsewhere nowadays.
