There is a new range at The Body Shop this summer which you may or may not have spotted over the last few weeks. The Virgin Mojito range has quite literally been splashed all over the blogging community recently and with good reason. If you are into super fresh and fruity scents which literally optimise summer then it is well worth checking this range out.
The limited edition Virgin Mojito range consists of blends of lime and freshly crushed mint, where upon use you are instantly transported to a beach with a cocktail or two in hand! Like most ranges from The Body Shop there is body butter, shower gel and body scrub which are all divine, and that is just the scent alone. Being quite a fan of The Body Shop I have tried more than my fair of body butters in the past, it goes without saying that the Virgin Mojito Body Butter* is already a firm favourite of mine; it is so incredibly refreshing.
If you are looking for a good old exfoliator for in the shower then I can’t say that I could recommend the Virgin Mojito* one too much. For me it is extremely light and doesn’t provide the texture that I would like for a body scrub, although having said that it is really gentle and provides light exfoliation so this may be a good one to use regularly or to have at hand if you have a bit of sunburn.
In recent months The Body Shop have launched the body sorbets in which the Virgin Mojito Body Sorbet* is probably my favourite product from this whole range. Having never tried one of these products before I was incredibly curious to see how they worked for me as I have always been a huge fan of the much thicker body butters. Upon using this I was pleasantly surprised at how light it was and how easily it absorbed into my skin. Using this has made a nice change to my body butters although I do think that for those who suffer with drier skin that this may not be enough in terms of keeping the skin hydrated; overall I think the body butters would be much better.
On a whole I have been really impressed with this range, it sure is perfect for the summer months, especially if you are jetting off somewhere sunny. Never fear though, for those of you who are not (me included) I hear we have somewhat of a heat wave coming this week so whip out your sun hat, sunglasses and the ever important SPF and enjoy.
