Hey guys! Today’s post is on something I’ve been using for a little over a week now. I’m sad that it’s all gone! Here’s my take on Philosophy Melting Marshmallow Body Lotion.
At 60 ml / 2 fl oz, this size comes in a set I got on sale last Holiday season. It’s part of a Macy’s exclusive set for this scent. I don’t think this was ever released at the regular size because if it does then please let me know so I can hoard some! The front of the tube reads “philosophy: when you think of melting marshmallows, picture toasted marshmallows over a crackling fire, or melting in a cup of double rich hot cocoa.”
The website described it as the following:
“Savor life’s sweetness. This marvelous collection celebrates the magic of melting marshmallow, in all its ooey-gooey glory! Dive into melting marshmallow shampoo, shower gel & bubble bath, moisturize with melting marshmallow body lotion and prep your pout with melting marshmallow high-gloss, high-flavor lip shine. “Mmm” says it all.”
Verdict? Holy crap! This smells so darn good! If you’re one that likes chocolate-y scents then you will love this one! It doesn’t smell like the fake chocolate scent you’d get from body products sometimes. My husband tried to guess what it is and mentioned peanut butter which I told him he’s on the right track. Our dog loves this scent as well. He did a drive by lick on my leg one day that totally caught me off guard. LOL! I do keep this high up so that he can’t get to it or else it’s such a waste of a good product and I’d be worrying about him consuming something he shouldn’t have in the first place! This is the first Philosophy body lotion I’ve ever tried. As much as I love this product I must say that I find myself using more of it than I expected. I think my skin absorbs the lotion really fast so I guess you can see this as both a good and a bad thing. Good cause the formula is made to be absorbed by the skin fast. Bad cause it feels like I’m using more in terms of amount than I would with body lotions from other brands. The body lotion is a creamy white in color that’s slightly translucent in terms of color opacity. Texture is just about as I would expect from a body lotion.
This is sadly not part of their permanent line so your best bet to find it is in some discount stores like ROSS or TJMaxx. That’s the only place I’ve seen that carries discontinued Philosophy products at a discounted price. I really do hope they bring this back in a few months for the Holidays!
