Philosophy Crispy Marshmallow Bars 3-in-1 Shower Gel
Philosophy Crispy Marshmallow 3-in-1 Shower Gel

Anyone for a rice krispie treat?

Philosophy Crispy Marshmallow Bars 3-in-1 Shower Gel ($16.00 for 16 oz.) is a sugary-sweet confection of rich, decadent creamy and vanilla and butter.  It is a definite food scent, and if you aren’t into sweet scents, pass on this particular version of the 3-in-1 Shower Gel.

my thoughts on the formula: Philosophy Shower Gels are one of my personal favorites for body washes, because they come in an assortment of scents, with new ones each season. They lather up well and leave skin feeling clean without any tightness or dryness. I wouldn’t call these a moisturizing body wash nor do their scents linger. If you prefer your body wash to leave behind a long-lasting scent, these won’t be for you, but if you like to enjoy the scent while you shower but don’t want it to linger beyond, then these are perfect. (I belong to the latter category!) I don’t find them to lather quite as well in the hair, and they work in a pinch to clean hair, but I prefer many other shampoos over this one. It does, however, work well as a bubble bath, too–a little goes a long way.

    I love philosophy shower gels! In fact, I started buying them after reading one of your reviews a while back. They just smell so good!! I have also bought one of the ULTA smoothie shower gels hoping to get the same kind of scent for less money…but they are not the same at all.

    Is this limited edition? Because this would be a fantastic gift for my friend! Her birthday is in a few months, and she loves marshmallow bars!

  5. This sounds lovely, I wish I could find it in the UK!

    I have an unrelated request, could you please add the MAC Prolongwear Concealer/Foundation range to your foundation matrix? Thanks x

    We all know that you love these Philosophy 3in1s. Maybe you should branch out and review some other shower products. Thanks, ans I love your blog.

    • Perhaps you could suggest some – it would be far more helpful. Thank you!

        May I suggest Mad City Sue’s wonderful body products? Her body scrub is amazing and she has some gorgeous pumpkin scents for this season!

        I know she has something of a cult following – everyone I know who has tried her products loves them – and it’d be great to see reviews of her stuff here on Temptalia, one day!
