The Body Shop Virgin Mojito collection review - the perfect summer bath and body scent


I'm not all that adventurous with my blog photography usually - I'm just not very artsy, although I wish I was - but products from a Mojito scented bath and body range, well it would have been rude not to rustle up a cocktail as a prop, right?  Purely for aesthetic purposes, of course...  The Body Shop Virgin Mojito collection smells exactly like a Mojito, which one of my favourite cocktails.  It's a spot-on, super zesty and fresh combo of mint and lime which isn't at all sickly or sweet, and it's perfectly timed for summer too.


The brilliantly refreshing and zingy virgin mojito shower gel is £4 for 250ml - I hope it'll be available in a bigger size too, because it's such a great scent for waking you up in your morning shower.  The virgin mojito body butter is £13 for the large 200ml tub, and I'm already obsessively applying this just because I love the scent.  As usual with The Body Shop body butters, it's intensely moisturising, but also lightweight and easily absorbed.  I'm usually a bit lazy when it comes to body moisturisers, so the yummy fragrance is a great incentive for me to get slathering!  

Also in the range is a body scrub, body splash,  and body sorbet.  I love the Mojito scent so much that I'd really like to wear it as more of an actual fragrance, so I'm certainly going to pick up the body splash.  I think it's like a body spray, but without the actual spray, so you literally do 'splash' it onto your body!  I'm also pleased to see the body sorbet moisturiser in this scent - it's one of my favourite Body Shop products and such a cooling, light moisturiser for summer, so I'll also be getting one of those next time I'm doing a little haul.  

The Body Shop Virgin Mojito collection is available now in store and at thebodyshop.co.uk

  1. Mojito is one of my favorite cocktails as well, and I really love the smell of a fresh glass of Mojito - but not so sure I would like my skin to smell like one! hehe :) I bet it smells amazingly fresh and cool though, I would definitely check it out next time I´m in a Body Shop store :) xx

    1. I don't think I used the right lighting for these actually, and was annoyed with myself, so thank you for saying that! Defo remember the white musk from my teens! x
