Today I’m reviewing the all new Virgin Mojito range from The Body Shop! With lime and mint extracts from the Caribbean, this is definitely the most refreshing range from The Body Shop till date! I’m reviewing the Body Scrub, Body Butter and Body Splash from this range.
The Body Shop Virgin Mojito Body Scrub (Rs 1295)
As far as texture and packaging goes, this is very similar to the Fuji Green Tea scrub. It has a gel base with 2 kinds of granules which offer gentle scrubbing action to the skin. The scrub feels quite mild and is suitable for daily use. My skin feels clean, smooth and soft after use and it doesn’t leave any residue or film behind. The scent of this range is a potent combination of lime and mint – the flavors of a mojito and it is super refreshing. The scent is very clean and suitable for men and women in my opinion. It just reminds me of fresh lemons and mint and smells exactly how you’d think it would!
The Body Shop Virgin Mojito Body Butter (Rs 1095)
The body butter has the same refreshing lime and mint scent as the scrub and doesn’t feel as heavy as some of the other body butter variants from The Body Shop. Since this was meant to be a summer launch, the formula is not super rich and doesn’t feel greasy on the skin. I’d still recommend it to be people with slightly dry skin or during winter time because it can feel a little rich on a hot day if you don’t have slightly dry skin. As far as hydration properties go, it moisturizes the skin really well and lives up the stellar reputation of The Body Shop body butters. When I use this, the lime and mint scent lingers on my skin for a couple of hours.
The Body Shop Virgin Mojito Body Splash (Rs 1395)
The body splash comes in a round plastic bottle and is meant to be used all over the body post shower. Its not as potent as a perfume so you can use it quite generally over the body. When you layer this over the body butter, the fresh lime/mint scent stays on the skin for about 3-4 hours. Without the body butter, this fades off rather quickly on me and I get 1.5 hours at best. I like the concept of the body splash and the scent feels very fresh but I wish the staying power was better!
The Body Shop Virgin Mojito range brings together the classic combination of lime and mint in a variety of body products. From the fresh lime colors and packaging to the light textures and punchy scent, everything about this range spells fresh and clean. For those who don’t particularly like dense florals and sweet fruity scents, this is the perfect flavor to try. I just wish this had come out a couple of months earlier so that we could have enjoyed the mojito flavor in the sultry summers!
The Body Shop Virgin Mojito range is now available across stores in India.
