The Body Shop Virgin Mojito Range

Wednesday, May 27, 2015
If you've been following my blog for a while, you will know that The Body Shop is one of my favourite brands and this upcoming collection is no exception! I was very kindly sent a few products from The Body Shop Virgin Mojito range which will be online and in stores on the 2nd June. 

The product I was most excited to try was *The Body Shop Virgin Mojito Body Butter (£6.50, 200ml) which is made with lime and mint extracts from the Caribbean. It is design for normal skin and claims to provide fresh hydration for 24 hours. I have been a massive fan of The Body Shop body butters for years so I had high hopes. The scent is just gorgeous; it smells so sweet, citrusy and summery as well as slightly creamy, in my opinion. Despite being so thick and nourishing the body butter is very smooth and quite light feeling on the skin for a body butter. It provides a good amount of hydration without being heavy or greasy, unless you use too much. Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5. 

Next up is *The Body Shop Virgin Mojito Body Scrub (£15, 250ml) which has the same lovely summery scent as the body butter but in the tub it is much stronger and more citrusy; it reminds me of the Solero Shots from the 90's, does anyone else remember them? The scrub has a thick jelly consistency so it doesn't just fall down the drain which is fantastic. It is a gentle scrub so it would be pretty good if you have sensitive skin however I would prefer it to be more exfoliating. Overall rating: ★★★★☆, 4/5.

Lastly, *The Body Shop Virgin Mojito Body Splash (£16, 300ml) which is a new product for The Body Shop as far as I know. It is a body fragrance that according to the directions, you pat onto the skin after showering to extend the feeling of freshness all day which are bold claims! It is a little awkward to use a body fragrance that doesn't have a spray and the initial scent is similar to hand sanitiser but it very quickly changes to the refreshing lime and mint mojito scent that I love but to me it isn't like you've just spilt a virgin mojito cocktail all over you - unless you use a tonne of it! The longevity isn't amazing when used on its own with approximately two hours before it becomes pretty much undetectable. Although when layered with the scrub and body butter the longevity is better. Overall rating: ★★★★☆, 4/5.

Overall, I think this range is such a refreshing change for The Body Shop; my favourite products have to be the body butter and scrub. The range that I have tried that is closest to this is the passion fruit range as they are both very fruity, citrusy and summery. I would definitely recommend these products as a lovely bodycare range for the summer although I don't think the scent will be for everyone. 

Will you be trying any of these products? What are your favourite products from The Body Shop?

  15. I am loving this range since i received it a few weeks ago, not that the weather is warmer, it's the perfect refreshing body range. I agree with you on the Body Splash though, it should have a spray of some sort. Oh and my favourite way of using the scrub since it's quite gentle is on dry skin before I turn on the shower :D x

  17. Im so excited for this collection! Ive been so intrigued to find out what the Body Splash actually is, the body butter and scrub isn't something I'd usually go for, but I like the thought of layering it all! Cant wait to smell like a mojito!
