Philosophy Melting Marshmallow
Quick Review: Philosophy Melting Marshmallow
Philosophy Melting Marshmallow Shower Gel ($16.00 for 16 oz.) is a sweet, marshmallow and chocolate kind of scent. It’s a bit like s’mores, a bit like a toasted marshmallow. Very sweet, very foodie, though it doesn’t linger so you won’t get the urge to gnaw off an arm as an afternoon snack.
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.
Welcome to Swatch-all-idays! To start 2011 off on the right foot (or post, as it may be!), Temptalia is going through a backlog of products we have photographed, swatched, and often tested but in a slightly different manner. Quick reviews may be partially incomplete, such as a blush may only be swatched on the arm rather than shown on the face. It is our hope that what we are able to provide is still helpful!

FINAL THOUGHTS: Best for those who love very sugary sweet scents, as this one is true to its name but meant for someone with a sweet tooth.
