...and getting caught in the rain. I bet you have that song stuck in your head now! I love the song, I love Piña Colada cocktails, and I love The Body Shop's new Piñita Colada range. I was wondering why they chose to call it "Piñita Colada" and not "Piña Colada", but after some googling I found out that a Piñita Colada is the non-alcholic version of a Piña Colada, which makes sense, since there's no alcohol in bath products! The website says, "Brighten up your summer with The Body Shop Piñita Colada body care range. This irresistible summer scent evokes the aroma of freshly blended pineapple, coconut flakes, and refreshing coconut water." What more can one hope for?
The range consists of a shower gel (R99), body sorbet (R125), body butter (R170), and a body scrub. In stores, however, you'll only find the shower gel, body sorbet, and the body butter. I was looking forward to trying out the scrub but the lady told me that we won't be getting that as there was an issue with the formulation of the product. I'm not 100% sure how true this is, but I'll update when I find out more.
The shower gel is quite a thick gel-cream that smells like summer in a bottle. It's fresh and is the perfect mix between coconut and pineapple. It foams up nicely but doesn't leave your skin feeling dry and parched like some other shower gels do. The scent lingers on my skin but it's very light and non-offensive.
I severely dislike the texture of the body sorbets, but it seems that they've now reformulated it and I'm happy to report that it's much less grainy and more easily absorbed by the skin. I still like the body butters more, so I picked up a body butter along with my shower gel.
The body butter is rich and creamy but somehow feels different than the other Body Shop body butters. It feels to me like it's more creamy, yet lightweight enough to sink in quickly (no white residue that you have to keep rubbing in - my worst). My skin feels ever so slightly tacky after a minute or two, but that can be expected from any body butter. As it continues sinking into my skin I can feel my skin becoming soft and smooth without any tackiness. The smell is also simply divine and it lingers (more so than the shower gel), which I love.
This collection is available for a limited time only, so if you want to try it out you better hurry.
Have you tried this range yet? What did you think? Let me know in the comments section!
Until next time!
