Whenever I’m taking care of my body, I like to use products that smell amazing. Its half the fun and while using products that work really well is what matters the most, I don’t think that you should ever compromise on the fragrance of a product either.
That’s where treaclemoon come in.
They’re a happy, fun loving independent UK brand that really deliver with the products that they create as they work really well but smell amazing too which is what I love. They’ve been around since 2007 and now stock an extensive range of bath and shower gels, body scrubs, hand washes, hand lotions, bod butters and gift sets all in a variety of delicious scents. I’ve used one of their products before a cinnamon bath and shower gel that was so comforting to use after a long day out and about Christmas shopping. You can read my review of it here.
Most recently, I have been trying out three different products from treaclemoon and I can tell you that they have been a huge hit with not only me but my hubby and dad too. I popped these in my bathroom after photographing them just before I went on holiday and when I returned, I could see that they had been used a lot. Turns out that the boys in my life loved them and were using them over their more manly fragrances whenever they would have a bath!
So now that I’ve had a good chance to try them out, let me tell you all about what I think of them!
|Marshmallow Hearts Bath and Shower Gel*|
The first product that I tried out was the Marshmallow Hearts Bath and Shower Gel. I was immediately drawn to this particular fragrance because I love the warm, sweet comforting scent of marshmallow and the scent of this gel definitely lived up to my expectations; it smells good enough to eat!
What you’ll notice about all treaclemoon products is that the design on the labels are so simple but really cute and they all have a lovely description on them that aims to capture the essence of the scent of the product which I really think that they do.
The Marshmallow Hearts Bath and Shower Gel is an absolute delight to use. I’ve tried to use it both as a shower gel and as a bubble bath and I was surprised to find that it actually works equally as well for either use. As a shower gel, it lathers up nicely, leaving my skin clean but not squeaky or tight and as a bubble bath, it adds just the right amount of foam and bubbles to the water that make my bath a relaxing place to soak in after a long day working, not to mention the amazing fragrance that it fills my bath or shower with!
|Those Lemonade Days Gentle Hand Wash from treaclemoon*|
The Those Lemonade Days Gentle Hand Wash has been a massive hit with all of my family and after seeing how much the boys loved it in the bathroom, we quickly moved it into the kitchen where it gets even more use. The lemon scent is strong in a zingy, uplifting way but not overpowering which is why we like to keep it in the kitchen because we find that the lemon fragrance helps to counteract the food scents that may be on our hands, perhaps after eating fish or chopping garlic.
Like with the bath and shower gel, it is very gentle on the skin and cleans the hands well without drying them out. This is so important for us as my dad has psoriasis on the joints of his hands and I have it on my wrist.
The final product that I have been trying out from treaclemoon most recently is the My Coconut Island Body Scrub which smells heavenly. Whenever I use this, the fragrance immediately transports me back to the summer and the fabulous holidays that I enjoyed.
This is a gentle scrub which is perfect for those that like to exfoliate their body daily or every other day. It has quite a lot of little black beads inside it which are the exfoliating particles that help to slough away the dead skin cells from your body. I usually prefer a scrub that it a little more abrasive than this but if I use it on my body when it is damp but away from the running water, then I can work it up to be a little more harsh which has a more intense scrubbing effect. I love how smooth and soft my skin feels after using this scrub, especially as it also leaves a lingering light scent of coconut after use.

I really love treaclemoon as a whole because I think that they’re really affordable, do what they say they will and smell delicious while doing so. I like that they’re easy to find in store and the packaging is simple but so cute. I’ve been looking more into them as a brand and found out that they’ve not long announced a fabulous charity partnership with BulliesOut who are a charity that give help and support to individuals, schools, workplaces and communities to help young people to reach their full potential in a safe, positive and encouraging environment. I absolutely love brands that give back and support charities so treaclemoon definitely get a big thumbs up from me!
All of these products are vegetarian and vegan friendly; I love that treaclemoon’s ethos is ‘ please remember that true beauty begins from the heart’.
You can find treaclemoon products on the shelves at Tesco and Waitrose so they’re easy to pick up alongside your weekly shop! They’re also stocked worldwide so you may be able to find a stockist in your country as well.
