This really does firm the skin. I use it everywhere from the neck down, it is also moisturizing. The scent on initial application is very strong, sort of reminds me of what my grandmother would wear. But the fragrance doesn't stay very strong throughout the day. I targeted the areas that have been issues, after dropping quite a bit of weight very quickly (like my under arms). The firming effects don't last more than a day and a half. But it is a very noticeable difference. I noticed it most in my chest. I was very happy with it. So I don't know if it would firm these areas permanently in the longterm, but I will repurchase when I run out.
I have so many bottles of Philosophy body emulsions in a ton of scents, and this is a tie for favourite (up there with Falling in Love).
I don't know so much if it will "firm" my skin but I don't think I use it often enough to really test that out - considering the steep price per bottle. I definitely use these sparingly for special occasions because I would absolutely hate to run out. The texture is great, super moisturizing, and again, the scent is absolutely fabulous.
I love this cream! It's my go-to post shower cream. It smells amazing, but not overpowering. The smell lingers all day subtly and I really like that. It softens my skin and feels so nice.
I began using this product after finding our=t how it will relieve my dry skin, and it did on my first try. I use this product about once a day and i do feel the effectiveness as it leaves my skin feeling softer and moisturized without being sticky. i use this product after cleansing my face with the ole henrikson foaming african red tea cleanser and i have not experienced any breakouts, oily or dry patches on my skin. I hugely recommend this product or just giving it a try as sephora has a great return policy so dont be afraid of the price it is worth it.
I went to Sephora to browse around for a concealer, but I ended up buying some totally different things. The cashier gave me a sample of the Amazing Grace lotion to try and I adooooore it!
First of all, The scent is just amazing. It's so soothing and it really calms me down. I could smell forever. To be honest, I put it on my hand just to smell it every so often. I can't help. It's smells so good. It is not too strong or anything.
Second of all, it works for a pretty long time. I have eczema and I put it on a patch of about-to-crack-dry skin and I am really shocked right now. I put it on every time the scent or the lotion went away, which was every few hours, but, it was so moisturized that I didn't scratch it. I went to bed with it on and in the morning, my eczema on that area was 75% all gone.
Alright, let me tell you about the lotion. It is white, and really smooth. It's not oily or chunky. It's smooth like...whipped egg whites? I don't know, maybe a but thicker than melted ice cream and more together?
Well, I will buy this when my sample is finished, or I'll just go to Sephora and get another sample. Hehe. But, I really love this and I say I love everything, but this one is so true. And so, I EXTREMELY recommend you folks out there to at least try it from a retailer near you. I'm sure you'll be amazed as I am. So, that happened to me, but I don't know about you guys.
And I probably shouldn't say this, but I actually think it's better than Vaseline's sheer infusion thing. Vaseline leaves this weird velvety thing but philosophy doesnt. It keeps your skin moisturized and lets you feel your own skin. I'm just saying. Okay bye. I need to go try the Philosophy \One Step Facial Cleanser, which I actually bought. I will review it soon. Bye!
