Although I am SUPER happy the Virgin Mojito is back as I am a huge sucker for citrus-y smells, especially lime, I am a little disappointed that there isn’t a new cocktail concoction to obsess over this year. There are SO many different cocktails they could have brought to life brilliantly…
Despite the price, I have barely any criticisms about this range. It seems to be ever so slightly stronger scented on the lime side this time round which I personally think is a good thing, it’s perfect for early mornings and summer days when you need waking up and refreshing with something fruity and zesty. The sorbet would be great for people who like to keep their skin hydrated but aren’t keen on the clogged feel the body butters can sometimes give or I’d say to go for the body butter if your skin is more on the dry side and you want a longer lasting scent!
The scrub is also lovely for people with skin more on the sensitive side as it’s very soft and the consistency is gel-like, could even possibly be used everyday. And last but not least, the shower gel is soap-free so won’t dry your skin out, the scent is incredible and the most strong out of all the products and you can pop it in when you’re running a bath to get a foamy, fresh-smelling lather.
I only have the one Pinita Colada product as I wasn’t the biggest fan of the range last year but for anyone that likes more creamy smells or coconut and pineapple, THIS would be the range for you. I bought the scrub as it’s a bit more effective than the Mojito one but I’d still say it was only light to medium for exfoliation. (If you’re looking for something more rough I’d recommend the Mediterranean Sea Salt Scrub from the Spa of the World range!).
The exfoliant particles are shredded pieces of coconut aswell which I thought was a lovely touch alongside the Caribbean extracts. It leaves a very nice, smooth feel of the skin after use and a light scent on the skin too. I tried the shower gel last year, and it is a beautifully creamy and milky one so I’d also recommend trying that if you’re into quite rich products.
