Philosophy Sunshine Grace Firming Body Emulsion

I'm kind of a body lotion addict, and I love taking a few minutes each day to moisturize my body. I've been trying out Philosophy's Sunshine Grace Firming Body Emulsion* ($44 CAD/16 oz.), which is a new release for Spring/Summer. I'm a huge fan of Philosophy's body care line, so I was really excited to give this a try!

Philosophy Sunshine Grace Firming Body Emulsion

Philosophy's Sunshine Grace Firming Body Emulsion comes in a simple white bottle with a convenient pump. This lotion is very thick and creamy - I'm surprised that it didn't come in a tub! But the pump hasn't gotten clogged, so it works! I love how moisturizing this formula is, but it still sinks in quickly and doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy or sticky. This lotion leaves my skin feeling smooth, supple, and hydrated. I also love the bright, summery fragrance, which it isn't too overpowering. The scent is a nice mix of floral, citrus, and light musk. This lotion lightly scents my skin, and the fragrance sticks around for about 4 hours. I've used this lotion both morning and night, and it works well both ways. In the morning, it's easy to quickly apply this lotion, and it only takes a few minutes to fully absorb. At night, this thick formula feels so pampering.

All things considered, this lotion is a definite hit! As for the "firming" claims, I haven't been able to put them to the test. However, I still think that this is a highly pampering, luxurious body lotion with a wonderful scent. I definitely think that this is worth checking out, and I don't think that you'll be disappointed! Have you checked out Philosophy's Sunshine Grace scent yet? This is a limited edition product, so check it out while you still can! :)

  4. I've never seen a Philosophy lotion in this format -- everything I've seen is flip-top. Very cool! The pump is a marked improvement.
