A Pina Colada Shower?!

If you follow me on Twitter (or just read my blog in general) then you will know that I love my cocktails and one of my particular favourites is a Pina Colada. For anyone that doesn’t know, a Pina Colada is made up from pineapple juice, coconut cream and rum (all the best cocktails contain rum!). Most are then garnished with a slice of fresh pineapple, utterly delicious! For me, the best Pina Coladas are creamy and smooth with just the right balance of coconut and pineapple.

This might sound a little crazy but please bear with me.  If you read my post on OGX Haircare then you will know that I have been really enjoying their coconut shampoo and conditioner.. And I have finally found the perfect shower gel that used alongside these, turns my morning showers into a tropical paradise!

The Original Source Pineapple & Coconut Oil Moisturising Shower Gel (Boots, 250ml, currently £1.35) is so nice! It smells strongly of pineapple (which I love) and contains natural oils which really helps my dry skin (although I always use a body butter or lotion afterwards). But the best part is it smells so damn good! However it smells even better when I use my OGX Coconut Shampoo & Conditioner. Both of those scents mixed together is heavenly! It reminds of a Pina Colada (minus the rum) and I’ve been using this combination a lot recently. Brightens even the dullest Monday mornings!

I’m a huge Original Source fan and although it doesn’t beat the Lime shower gel for me, the Pineapple & Coconut Oil is definitely worth giving a go! These shower gels are great value for money!

    This shower gel looks interesting! I've tried a few by Original Source and I'm never disappointed. I love their mint and tea tree one. They're also usually quite cheap and you can sometimes find them on offer. I love pineapple and coconut so I want to try this one 🙂

    For a second I really thought that you would wash your hair using a cocktail.
