How does the armor of agathys 5e works?

The protective magic power surrounds you, condensing into a layer of phantom frost covering you and your equipment.

You gain 5 temporary hit points for the duration of the spell. If a creature hits you with a melee attack while you have these temporary hit points, the creature will take 5 freezing damage.

When casting this dnd 5e spell with a 2nd-level or higher spell slot, each time you use a spell slot higher than 1st ring, the temporary life and freezing damage are increased by 5 points.
