Marshmallow Blends is an indie bath and body company run by fellow beauty blogger, Nicoletta. Each product is hand made, packed full of skin loving ingredients and scented with delicious foody fragrances - sounds fab, right?! Marshmallow Blends has quite a girly, cute, fresh look which suits the products perfectly.
Sugar scrub cubes come presented in a large tin with transparent lid and cute candy striped bow. I opted for the 'Lemon Sherbet' fragrance which I absolutely ADORE - zingy, lively and not in the least bit synthetic. 'Lemon Sherbet' pairs perfectly with my favourite lime scented shower gel - delicious :)
I expected that these sugar cubes would turn to mush almost immediately, but to my delight they stay solid long enough to scrub the entire body. Squishing a cube into a paste requires a fair bit of force and a lot of water, so don't worry, they don't vanish down the plug hole as soon as you step in to the shower!
The texture of this body butter is awesome! It's like a mousse, which seems to dissolve into an oil once rubbed into the skin. This doesn't sink in well, instead leaving behind a greasy texture - for this reason I only ever apply it before bed. I do, however, wake up the following morning with beautifully soft skin! 'Applejack Frost' smells like cinnamon, sugar and apple pie filling - it's quite spicy and VERY festive.
Overall, both products smelt fresh and 'real', both fulfilled their intended tasks, both were reasonably priced, postage was a fixed £2.99 and my order arrived quickly. If you're after something more interesting that what you can grab off the shelves of your supermarket, Marshmallow Blends have you covered.
Sugar scrub cubes - £5.99 for one 45g tub. Body butter - £5.99 for 100ml of product. Available from Marshmallow Blends online store.
