Philosophy Does It Again!: Philosophy Baby Grace Perfumed Body Lotion

Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Smells just like Baby Grace; very thick, rich and moisturizing; non-greasy; great packaging/bottle

Cons:None (unless you think the price is high)

The Bottom Line: Whether you love the way a baby smells or you are just looking for a unique fragrance - Baby Grace might be just what you are looking for!


I have been a big fan of Philosophy products for several years now. The first products I fell in love with were the Amazing Grace products - fragrance, body emulsion, etc. Then I discovered the Philosophy 3-in-1 products. Then it was Hope In A Jar. Then I discovered the Baby Grace line. I first read about this line of products online. It sounded strange to me..."for those who love the way a baby smells." I had visions of baby powder, dirty diapers, milk and spit-up. Huh? I had to go to my local Sephora to check it out - what exactly does a baby smell like?


Product Details:

Philosophy Baby Grace Perfumed Body Lotion is the body lotion that goes with the Baby Grace fragrance. The Body Lotion comes in just one size - 16 oz. It comes in a big, white, plastic bottle that measures 7.25" high and just under 3" in diameter at its widest point. It has a pump-top dispenser that also unscrews for when you want to pour the lotion out (good luck - this stuff is thick) or want to refill the bottle with something else.


So What Does Philosophy Think A Baby Smells Like?

Sephora.com lists the notes as: Poppy, Green Accord, Pink Mimosa, Pepper, Creamy White Woods and musk. What it smells like to me is a mixture of sweet pea and baby wipes! It is a light, fresh, sweet fragrance (those are my words). I love the scent - it is so unique. It doesn't smell like Love's Baby Soft if that is what you are thinking. It has a hint of that same baby powder scent, but there are other scents mixed in. Love's is all baby powder, while Baby Grace is more complex.

I also want to add that the scent of Baby Grace is nothing like the scent of Amazing Grace or Pure Grace.


Have A Baby If..:

Philosophy is known for their "sayings" and wisdom printed on their packaging. They have advice for having a baby on the back of the Baby Grace Body Lotion bottle. Personally, I think some of them are silly. But all of the sayings give us food for thought. Here are a few examples:

*Have a baby if you've ever wondered what your soul looks like.
*Have a baby if you dare to feel the winds of heaven each time you feel their breath across your cheek.
*Have a baby if you need proof that God truly does exist.
*Have a baby if you can't put your finger on what is missing from your life.
*Have a baby if you have lost your innocence, a baby will find it for you.
*Have a baby if you have trouble staying in the moment.



My Experience:

I am 100% in love with the fragrance of Baby Grace. I'm also in love with two of Philosophy's other fragrances - Falling In Love and Amazing Grace. I have lotions for these two. I needed a lotion for Baby Grace, so I ordered a bottle from Sephora.com. I wasn't happy with the $34 price, but was pleasantly surprised that the bottle was so big. There's a lot of lotion in that big bottle!

The second thing that pleasantly surprised me was how thick Baby Grace Body Lotion is - it's not runny or thin at all. It is very thick (maybe even thicker than the Amazing Grace Firming Body Emulsion, if you are familiar with that product) and rich. The color of the lotion is white, and it's not pearly or shimmery - it is just ultra-creamy and feels rich.

The moisturizing and softening properties of Baby Grace Body Lotion are fantastic. I use it as a hand cream from time to time, as well as a body lotion. I have never been disappointed with the moisture and softening I get from it. It's also not greasy at all and leaves no residue. It sinks into the skin completely and scents the skin nicely. There's no doubt that Baby Grace Body Lotion will extend the wear of your Baby Grace fragrance.

Some companies will put out lotion products that don't smell much like the matching fragrance. Luckily, that didn't happen here with Baby Grace Body Lotion. The scent is dead-on and isn't even a tiny bit off.


Final Thoughts:

I don't know if I would wear this product if I had a baby. I don't have children at this point in my life, and I don't think I will wear this product when/if I have a baby - why would you try to smell like your baby? I'm not sure if I like that idea. But for those of us who love babies and who love the slightly powdery, sweet-pea-ish, clean scent of Baby Grace, the scent is perfect. The lotion itself is so rich, thick and moisturizing that it's perfect to use as a hand cream or a body lotion even when you aren't wearing the matching fragrance.


Price and Purchasing Information:

A bottle of Philosophy Baby Grace Perfumed Body Lotion is $34 no matter where you buy it. A great place to purchase it online is Sephora.com. The only brick and mortar store I've seen that carries this product is Sephora.
