Rated 3 out of 5 by muffin22 Different scrub than in past
I love the olive oil scrub. This 'new' version though, from Coty, has no scent whatsoever! Not sure what else has changed in it as I don't have an older bottle from when Ms. Carlina was the owner. I feel all Philosophy products have been changed & not in a good way. I used to use Philosophy exclusively, before Coty took over, but have been switching to other brands now as it definitely isn't the same quality any more. I have used Amazing Grace for many years, with many many compliments, now the scent doesn't last 5 minutes. And no one ever notices anymore. Sad Coty, you've quickly ruined a great company! Hope someone at Coty reads these comments because I am not the only one that has noticed a huge difference. Oh and by the way, the pump does not work on this bottle at all. I have to pour it out on my washcloth. price is too high for this to happen, and it happens frequently lately. Listening Coty??
Rated 5 out of 5 by Holdie Best Purchase Ever!
I never write reviews but after reading the others I thought I would put in my option.
The Fresh Cream Olive Oil Scrub is a light scent, kinda like a warm fresh cookie. I have a super sensitive sense of smell and cannot use hardly any of the other scents, but this is subtle with the right amount of oil. This is not slimy or slippery and I think the scrub is not all that harsh.
Please give it a try I think you would be pleasantly surprised like I was. Not everybody wants to smell like a walking perfume bottle!!! Thank you for making this a light smelling product!
Rated 2 out of 5 by burmesepoodle Does not work for me
I don't like Fresh Cream as a fragrance. I love the olive oil scrub. You can't get it anywhere except QVC and I really like it a lot. I get Amazing Grace on auto ship. I think it is $43. This Fresh Cream was $28 so I gave it a try. I don't like it at all. The smell doesn't bother me. Being a scrub, you are not stuck with it for very long and philosophy fragrances are pretty wimpy anyway. The consistency of this product is different from the other fragrances I usually buy (the graces, unconditional love, etc.) It is oilier and comes out of the jar differently. Add to that it was shipped with a different pump (which seems to happen from the to time) and you have an unhappy user. My amazing grace autoship is set to ship next week and I'm sure I can live with this Fresh Cream for awhile. Who knows, I may be able to get through the whole bottle. I won't get it again. I would rather spend the extra money for the ones I like.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lexibabe Love the fresh smell
This product does make a difference on your skin and the smell is subtle but nice. It doesn't lather as much as other philosophy products but I like the results.

Love the smell. I already had the shower gel and body cream. This makes your skin so smooth and soft.
Rated 5 out of 5 by bb-fl Great skin care product
I was skeptical that this would be oily, and leave a residue in my shower, as some oil scrubs have. But this is wonderful. Makes my elbows feel very smooth and hydrated, and smells so good. Shower is pristine after use. Won't be without it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Suzannah Excellent purchase
This is an excellent scrub. The scent is very light, and after showering, the skin feels clean, exfoliated and so silky soft, which is the purpose of this product. I'm glad there is no lingering fragrance, as I like using my other Philosophy body creams after showering, and this product does not interfere with those fragrances. I don't understand the complaints about this product. Of course it is not going to have the same fragrance as the Original Fresh Cream body wash, because the body scrub formulation is not the same as the body wash (read the ingredients); and the purpose of this product is also different from the Original Fresh Cream. Also, nowhere on the label does it suggest that you use this product to wash your hair, as this product is a body scrub with salts (again, read the ingredients). How many body scrubs are made for washing your hair? As an age 60+ Philosophy girl who has used a variety of this skin care line for years, I know what I am talking about. Philosophy has a wonderful line of skin care products, and this is one of them! This is an excellent product; give it a chance, and read the directions!
Rated 3 out of 5 by LinLou Sad to Say ..... Disappointed!
I use fresh cream daily - usually by itself and sometimes mixed with cinnamon, lemon or vanilla (yes, my shower is crowded but they all get along!). The scent is different in the olive oil scrub, at least to my nose, and not too pleasant like the shower gel. It does exfoliate but the "beads" are larger and don't seem to dissolve. I cancelled my auto delivery but am happy to see more of the mega size (64oz) in the shower gel!!
REALLY wish philosophy would go back to their original scents - they've changed and no longer have any staying power unless you layer - and sometimes not even then!
