Carol’s Daughter Vanilla Marshmallow Had So Much Potential

Recently I picked up the Carol’s Daughter Vanilla Marshmallow Body Cream and Body Cleansing Cream Duo from HSN. I have to say I don’t understand why Carol’s Daughter doesn’t carry these scents on their site or in stores like Target. Scents like Jamaican Punch, Pomegranate Rose, and other wonderful blends seem to be exclusive to HSN. I don’t mind shopping HSN but I’d love it if some of the brand’s more unique scents were also available on their site and at mass retailers.

Anyway! Vanilla Marshmallow became available recently on HSN.com and I quickly snatched up. I mean vanilla, marshmallow, that’s a no brainer for gourmand lovers like me right? Add to the fact that many of the Carol Daughter’s Body Creams have such a lasting and strong fragrance and of course, I had to have this one.

I think Carol’s Daughter gets so many scents right like their gorgeous Black Vanilla one not to mention some of their yummy body creams in Angel’s Food Cake, Buttercream Cocoa, and Vanilla Truffle. I felt for sure that something like Vanilla Marshmallow would be amazing!


Sadly, it disappointed. Sigh! It had such potential!

The notes on this are vanilla, marshmallow, and soft florals. This really doesn’t smell anything like vanilla nor marshmallow. It’s a very, very, very soft floral scent. I’m talking VERY soft. I could barely smell it.

I’m crushed. I expected a fluffy marshmallow scent with notes of creamy vanilla! What I got was a soft barely there floral.

Carol’s Daughter fans be warned, skip this one!

Tried it?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

      I got the pom rose too and loved it. I can’t recall vanilla petals to be honest, this is a very soft, clean floral!

        it was from years ago! i scored a set off eBay 2 years ago and used so little each time bc i loved the scent- it was delicate but def had that yummy gourmand sweetness to it.

      This is definitely vanilla petals disguised as vanilla marshmallow. They smell identical. I’m waiting for Sugar-dipped vanilla to come back for the holidays on HSN.
