I love cocktails and recently, they have cropped up in so many conversations I have had (if you have participated in any #ltbloggers chats you will understand). I love rum, mint and lime so naturally, mojitos take centre stage in any cocktail conversation I participate in. When I then discovered The Body Shop had released a Virgin Mojito range, my ears perked up and I couldn’t get to my nearest store quick enough.
You may think that sounds like an exaggeration but that would be underestimating how much I love mint and lime
. They are two of my favourite smells, tastes (yeah, I have been known to just peel and eat a lime!) and as soon as I find any body or skincare product that is mint or lime related, I make a purchase without hesitation. The end result is sometimes bad, and sometimes very, very good
I am pleased to say that purchasing items from The Body Shop Virgin Mojito range was one of the better decisions I have made during my minty lime quest!. I picked up the Shower Gel (250ml, £4.00), Body Butter (50ml, £5.00) and Body Sorbet (200ml, £8.00). They all smell identical and are utterly amazing! I find myself just picking them up to sniff them! The combination of lime and mint is so fresh, so thirst quenching and oh so zesty! I honestly have nothing bad to say about this scent at all – I’m in love.
I keep a range of shower gels at hand in my shower because I like to jump from one to the next depending on my mood – those days are long gone now! I reach for this every single time I step into the shower and it just reminds me of being on a white sandy beach, mojito in hand
. I own a lot of The Body Shop body butters and they never disappoint me (they keep my skin so soft and smooth) but now the Virgin Mojito is definitely my favourite! Like the other body butters, this sinks effortlessly into my skin
and yeah, this is by far the best body butter I have ever had the pleasure of smelling!
You may have recently seen my post on A Summer Essential from The Body Shop
and I honestly cannot recommend the Body Sorbets highly enough.. Yeah, they might not be ‘travel friendly’ (Get that sorted Body Shop – I would buy Mini Body Sorbets!) but I honestly don’t care as my skin literally drinks this stuff up! And yep, the mango is gorgeous but Virgin Mojito is my new favourite – I’m going to be smelling of this all summer long. For me, this is my summer scent
and perfect for those long, warm days that are (hopefully!) just around the corner.
If you love lime and mint as much I do then you need to pop into a Body Shop and have a look… I’m pretty sure this range if limited edition and that makes me sad, so I will seriously need to stock up!
