Philosophy Marshmallows for Toasting Shower Gel Review

I’m not a die hard marshmallow fan but I will say that marshmallows rolled in toasted coconuts I can’t get enough. Nom! And of course, melted marshmallows are just amazing… can reenact campfire marshmallow toasting by slipping one on a fork and holding it over an open stove flame, now that is some tasty stuff!

The new Philosophy Marshmallows for Toasting Shower Gel makes my tummy grumble for those fluffy little buggers!


Marshmallows for Toasting isn’t a traditional marshmallow scent but that of marshmallow fluff or melted marshmallows. This one has a heaping helping of vanilla with an uber sweet swirl it kinda goes a bit buttery on me. The actual gel is a pale shimmering pink but no worries you can safely use in the shower without worrying about stepping out of it with sparkly bits and bobs on your skin, this washes clean away.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I really love the new whimiscal labels that Philosophy has embraced. This bottle has a puffy cloud and a red surround that kinda has a vintage feel.

In terms of fragrance level, Marshmallows for Toasting was a bit of a lightweight compared to other Philosophy Shower Gels I own. It has a more delicate, softer level of scent in the shower and of course, is in shower experience as the scent does not linger.

I know there are ALOT of marshmallow fans out there so you might want to add this little guy to your Christmas Wish List and don’t forget to get the full experience by also purchasing the matching body lotion.

    might pick this up during VIB sale, maybe….I prefer the melting marshmallow one. Might get the lotion instead, although their lotions dont do too much for me they aren’t awful.

    If you like marshmallow scents Sweets, you need to get your buns over to BBW and pick up a Marshmallow Fireside Slatkin candle! They have this scent in all of the forms Slatkin has!!
    Trust me on this, you will love it!

    I bought this last week — I love it! I love how Philosophy makes the vanilla-type scents seem effervescent. I also have Crispy Marshmallow Bars and I love that one, too.

    Haven’t tried this one, probably will pick up during the upcoming VIB sale. Picked up Cinnamon Buns & Eggnog during the last sale and anxiously awaiting their arrival :)

    I just ordered a few of the new scents and the creme brulee one. I should have skipped it and gotten this one! The creme brulee is okay, but it is a smidge plasticky for my liking.
