Have you seen the new limited edition from The Body Shop called Virgin Mojito? It came out this summer and I have a few products to show you. Keep on reading to find out about this wonderful new scent…!
These products really do smell like a virgin mojito, with a wonderful mix of mint and lime. At times the mint seems to come out more, and other times it’s the lime, but overall both scents are pretty even and I just want a drink in my hands! 🙂
All of these products are green in colour.
Let’s take a closer look at them in the order they would most likely be used…
The Body Shop Virgin Mojito Body Scrub
My first thought when I opened this scrub was that it has the same look as the scrub from the Green Tea collection – and I was right! I tried them both together in the shower and they have the same feel to them: they have a soft jello texture and their scrubby bits are soft, but you still feel them. It also does not leave an oily residue on your skin (which I prefer over the ones that do). So if you’ve tried the scrub from the Green Tea collection, this one feels exactly the same (but the colour and scent are different).
The Body Shop Virgin Mojito Shower Gel
I really like the shower gels from The Body Shop because they leave my skin feeling soft, and this one fits right in with the rest of them. It lathers well too and leaves a subtle mojito scent on your skin.
The Body Shop Virgin Mojito Body Butter
Ahh the body butters, aren’t they just amazing? This one is for normal skin, so a lighter version for the summertime. It’s still a body butter though so it is heavier than a body lotion. But it hydrates super well and leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth.
The Body Shop Virgin Mojito Body Sorbet
If you haven’t tried a body sorbet from The Body Shop you’re missing out. The texture is quite unique, it’s kind of like a silicon gel – if that makes any sense. It absorbs well though and leaves my skin feeling soft. It’s definitely lighter than the body butter so if you’re looking for a lighter moisturiser for the summer, this is definitely it.
The Body Shop Virgin Mojito Body Splash
This product reminds me of my father’s aftershave products because of the spout – I’m not sure that’s the right word I’m looking for, but you know what I mean. 🙂 You’re meant to splash it all over your body after your shower to extend the feeling of freshness all day. I prefer to splash it in my hands and pat it all over – I find it less messy that way.
These products definitely smell delicious! I’ve tried a few combinations to see what products would make the scent last longer or shorter, depending on what you prefer.
To make the scent last longer, definitely go with the body butter – you will have the freshness on your skin for hours. I found the scent that lingered was more lime than mint though, but I smelled freshly clean all day.
If you love scented products in the shower, but prefer to leave the scent in the shower (maybe because you wear perfume), then moisturize with the body sorbet. I found that with the shower gel and body sorbet the scent did not last at all, so if I want to wear perfume I don’t have to worry that it will clash with my body produts.
I didn’t find that the body splash made the scent last that much longer when used with the body sorbet, but it will give you little bursts of freshness if you use it thoughout the day.
Overall this is another great release from The Body Shop. But it is a limited edition though so grab it soon if you want some Virgin Mojito in your life!
Have you smelled this collection?
