Amazing Grace

Philosophy Amazing Grace

I’ve been blogging for a long time now and in all these years, there are certain collaborations that I look back on and think “I cannot believe I got to work with them!” High on that list was getting to work with one of my favorite beauty brands of all time, Philosophy, on a campaign to launch their new dry shampoo in my signature scent, Amazing Grace. I’ve written about them here and here and for anyone that knows me, can attest to the fact that I’ve been using everything from the line for as long as I can remember.

When they approached me to help launch their new dry shampoo, I almost fell out of my seat. The shoot ended up falling on my birthday, the best birthday gift I could ask for, and we headed out to an incredible house out in the Hamptons for a full day of shooting.

Philosophy Amazing Grace Dry Shampoo

For those of you who’ve never smelled Amazing Grace, I should probably tell you why I love it so much. Whenever I use anything from the collection, I get compliments. I always say that it smells like clean skin, but better. It’s beautifully subtle and without sounding cheesy, always puts me in a good mood. My go to routine always includes using their shower gel, followed by their body emulsion and layering their EDT perfume on top. Now that they’ve added a dry shampoo into their line, I promise you all, it will be the best smelling dry shampoo you’ll ever use. It smells SO GOOD, like clean fresh florals, and does a beautiful job at refreshing day two (or three!) hair.

HOW TO USE: shake well before use. spray two to three inches away from hair, focusing on the roots to provide extra volume and texture. Wait a few seconds, then gently rub in with your fingers or brush through.

Check out some of the videos we shot here and you can find all of my favorite products, including their new dry shampoo here.

Thank you to Philosophy for partnering on this post.

  • Kolene Shahan

    I really would like to try your products. Do you offer any samples? I am pretty sure I will start my collection with the Dry Shampoo. I’ve only my found 1 that worked best and unfortunately I believe the Company stopped making it because I’m not finding it.

    Good luck!!!

    I’m looking forward to trying this product. I haven’t worn Amazing Grace for a few years now, but use Philosophy shower gels to make my days feel “right.” When I wore Amazing Grace, my nieces and nephew would greet me with hugs and then say, “you smell so nice.”

    I agree that both Amazing Grace & Pure Grace
    USED to be the best fragrances I have
    used. I, too have been a fan for years.
    I haven’t bought either of these Philosophy
    products and won’t buy ANY since Coty
    bought the company. I purchased both
    scents as gifts for friends and myself
    Christmas 2016, in spite of reading
    hundreds, and I mean hundreds of very
    negative reviews concerning the scent
    being completely gone within an hour or
    so. I was shocked to find these reviews
    to be accurate!! I layered the perfumed
    body lotion with the spray and it was literally
    gone!! I had to call the friends that I had
    given these products to and ask if they
    had the same experience and they had.
    I was embarrassed and had to return ALL
    of the products!! When I called customer
    service, as I expected, they assured me
    that nothing about the fragrance has changed.
    Do they think all of the unsatisfied customers
    are stupid! At first I was told I could only
    get other product, not a refund!! I told
    them that I will no longer be using ANY
    Philosophy products, and I used many as
    obviously the quality control is seriously
    lacking. Read the reviews before buying
    what used to be these beautiful
    scents!! Don’t go through ordering, calling,
    waiting almost 2 weeks to get a pre paid label
    and then 3 – 4 weeks (really) for a refund.
    This company is a joke!!

    I’m a longtime fan of Amazing Grace as well. So excited to try the dry shampoo!
