These days there are so many bath, body and facial products sat on shelves in supermarkets and department stores its so hard to decide what to go for. If I’ve tried a particular brand before ( and liked it ) I’m more inclined to head to their direction, and then be more adventurous and pick up a new product or scent from that range to try out. But then by accident you try something new and that gets added to your ‘trusted’ list and the cycle of buying starts all over again. One such brand which I was introduced to in 2018/2019 is Treacle Moon. Their Marshmallow Hearts shower & bath gel was my first experience with their gels.
Treacle Moon meet Mybeautywaxstash. I’ve seen their products before and thought they looked nice, but if you haven’t tried them before how do you know if they are good or not? Well I was given some of their bath salts by a friend for either my birthday or Christmas 2018 which was my first product from the brand and loved them! So much so I went and bought a truck load of the salts myself throughout 2019 and even got some as gifts on my last birthday too. So from that point I trusted them and really wanted to try other products from their range. I opted for Marshmallow Hearts because I really wanted a product to use in both shower and bath and I thought the scent of this by name alone would be perfect for me.
Packaging. 500ml of gel lives in a plastic bottle with a flip top lid. Clear, so you can see what you get. Labelling is super cute with both sides having product name and brand ( of course ), but one side has an illustration of a jar of heart shaped marshmallows and on the other a paragraph giving you an imaginative description of what the scent of this gel is. 25% of the bottle is made from recycled plastic.
Texture & look. Although this is a gel it isn’t the typical gel I think of. This is pale pink in colour, not transparent so makes me think more of a bath or shower cream than a gel. Consistency is a thick liquid, which is what you would expect from this type of product.
Scent. Creamy and sweety like is what springs to mind with this. A mix of marshmallows, milk bottle sweets with a hint of strawberry milkshake and this is the best way I can describe how this smells to me. What I like about this is it could easily be too sweet and synthetic like in scent but it isn’t. Gives you enough sweetness to keep your nostrils happy but not so much you think you will suffer from diabetes!
In the shower & bath. I use this product in both shower and bath equally. In the shower on a sponge it lathered up quickly and produced a lot of foam. In the bath I needed very little and the amount of foam produced just by two squirts under warm running water was insane! Full, light, airy, white in colour and long lasting.
On the skin. This cleaned the skin on my body well, left a faint scent to it but not long lasting so no lingering and my skin felt and looked normal after use e.g skin didn’t dried out, irritated, sticky etc.
Recommended? Yes! What I love about this is it’s a little different in look packaging wise compared to similar products on the same shelf which caught my eye so stands out. In regards to the scent, these types of scents are popular but this is a great version and will hold its own compared to others. And the best thing about Marshmallow Hearts? I ENJOYED using this! It provides a quick, easy and effective shower in the morning and a relaxing, soothing bath in the evening. This is great for all the family to use as the scent will appeal from the youngest member of the household to the oldest. When I bought this originally it was half price ( £1.50 ), but worthwhile checking special offers on the range regularly ( Tesco and Waitrose stock Treacle Moon ). If you can’t head down to your local store you can buy their products direct from Treacle Moon themselves here. Go on treat yourself…its affordable!x
