Received this in a christmas gift set and was really looking forward to using it, but, it really let me down. It does not smell anything like marshmallows more spicy synthetic vanilla, my boyfriend asked me what i had used as it reminded him of the Yankee candle 'fall festival' which smells similar to curry. Not impressed, but the shower gel in this scent isnt so bad
This only smells from a distance the first minute you apply it, after that you have to put it up to your face. It's highly fragrant in the tube. ( I got the mini kit not the full size) It squirts out looking thick like a cream, but its really nice and thin when you rub it in. It has a slick feel to it that is sticky only for a few seconds. It took under a minute to absorb. Its not hydrating, but it feels nice. It absorbs and feels a lot better than bath & body works lotions for example but its not as moisturizing as vaseline lotion. The scent smells like a light chocolate with marshmallow. To me its a malt chocolate with a hint of vanilla. When it dries down after a good 15 minutes you smell a sweet marshmallow. This has more vanilla in the chocolate than the matching 3n1, the chocolate also isn't as soured as in the 3n1. It smells so strong in the tube, but it is very light on the skin. Im surprised at how light this is. It's light enough to be unnoticeable, and not worth the money to me. Even with layering the body wash & lotion I can barely smell it, its almost undetectable. The packaging for the melting marshmallow mini kit is adorable! It features real pictures with glitter, and is shaped like a an A-frame cottage, with a gold ribbon for the handle. The scent & packaging is a great idea from Philosophy but I feel the scent was way off & the products only give off a decent smell in their containers not on the skin. The lipgloss has hardly any scent once applied. I dont like strong scents, but this is just too faint for the money.
