So I know it's no longer summer, and The Body Shop Piñita Colada Range came out months ago, but I thought I'd review it anyway.
Piña Colada is one of my favourite cocktails - so you can imagine my delight when I heard that The Body Shop was going to release a Piñita Colada range. The combination of pineapple and coconut is simply irresistible, and I'm always impressed with The Body Shop's products, so I knew this range was going to be good.
The collection includes a shower gel, body sorbet, body scrub, and body butter, which cost between £5 and £15 each. While some bath and shower products cost as little as £1, I'd have to say that this collection is very reasonably priced. When I visited The Body Shop, I managed to purchase two bottles of the Piñita Colada Shower Gel for just under £5 - even better!
I love the packaging of the shower gel. It comes in a 250ml bottle which is really pretty and summery, as well as colourful. The shower gel itself smells fruity and refreshing, and I definitely get hints of pineapple and coconut. As it is a gel, this product does have a fairly thick consistency, and it is a bit difficult to squeeze it out of the bottle. However, this is a good thing, since it means that I won't use it up so quickly! The shower gel is also hydrating and soothing - perfect for after swimming in the sea!
According to The Body Shop's American website, the Piñita Colada range will enable you to "transport yourself to the tropics" - there is no denying that the shower gel achieves this. I immediately feel like I'm in Spain whenever I use it.
If you love pineapple and coconut, and are missing the sun, I'd recommend you pop to your local branch of The Body Shop and stock up on the Piñita Colada range. As it is limited edition, this range won't be available much longer - you don't want to miss out!
