It goes without saying that I'm not the only blogger guilty of buying bits and pieces just because I know that they'll look really cute on my instagram feed - and when Treacle Moon asked me if I'd like to give their Marshmallow Hearts Bath and Shower Gel* a go; I was more than guilty of snapping it up and dreaming of what filter I would use. Admittedly, I didn't expect much for £2.99 a bottle (Marshmallow Hearts can be found in Tesco) but I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised.
We need to talk about the smell of this. I expected the sticky, sickly smells of Yankee Fireside Treats - more like a toasted marshmallow smell, but this couldn't be further away. This is sweet in a really clean way, but it's undeniably marshmallow when you get a whiff of it - and I'm all over it; so much so that I've been using it for both bubble bath and to clean myself with (also, double use products are such a bonus, ain't nobody got time or space for double the half empty bottles around the bathroom). This stuff seems to linger on my skin in the best way - and it leaves the whole bathroom smelling amazing. A couple of downfalls? Although the clear bottles with coloured product inside make for super pretty displays, I also think as the product goes down they can look a little cheap and messy; which brings me on to point two - boy do I get through this quickly (although for £2.99, I'm not going to bitch too much about having to replace it.)
Treaclemoon have more to offer the world than just a pretty face though - and have recently announced their partnership with BulliesOut - an organisation that provide help and support to enable young people to realise their self worth and potential. Not only do Treaclemoon send a monthly donation to BulliesOut - this year, they're planning to help raise further awareness and funds. It's always nice to know that you're supporting a company that's giving something back, isn't it!
Have you tried anything from Treaclemoon? What did you think?
