The refreshing and energising taste of a zesty sugary mojito is one of my favourite things; when made correctly, the iconic cocktail is definitely the embodiment of summer. Freshly cut lime, crushed mint leaves, ice-cold soda water and a sprinkling of sugar may sound like the perfect beachside beverage, but how about a including it in a rich body butter or uplifting scrub? Not a brand to stick to what you’d expect, The Body Shop have once again pushed the boundaries by creating a line-up of Virgin Mojito body products to help you soak up summer in a whole new way. Including an innovative body splash, body butter, scrub, shower gel and body sorbet, there’s a heap of different formulas so you can integrate this incredibly unique fragrance into your routine in whichever way you choose.
Although many ‘mojito inspired’ fragrances are overtly sweet and somewhat artificial, this is the closest thing you’ll get without crushing the mint leaves yourself. Incredibly refreshing, zingy and uplifting, I could spend all day breathing in the fantastic summer scent. Layering the fragrance is super easy too, thanks to the availability of the scrub and shower gel, which can be enhanced with a splash of ‘body splash’ (a concept used a lot in South America to freshen and fragrance skin post-shower and throughout the day,) and a lathering of body sorbet or butter. The scent doesn’t last all day, just provides a temporary boost, but it’s a great way to start your morning or freshen up after a dip in the pool. The Body Shop keep knocking it out of the park with their limited edition collections and this may be their best yet; fruity, juicy, fresh and just a sprinkling of sweetness is my idea of heaven in a little green pot.
