It’s that time of year…I’m drying my laundry outside on the regular and I’ve had a barbecue and at least two frozen cocktails which means summer is well and truly on it’s way. Up until this point I thought there was no scent that encapsulated sunny days better than coconut (I have been known to slather on The Body Shop’s body butter in the warmer months like it’s going out of fashion) but surprisingly, something has eclipsed it. Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to introduce Piñita Colada.
If anyone was going to better my favourite summer scent, it would be The Body Shop themselves, and they’ve gone and done it alright, with this delicious new body care range. I’ve had a serious love of pineapple and coconut together for years (may have overdone it on the Malibu con piña’s on my Spanish exchange) and this really does smell like the tropical cocktail dreams are made of. Do you have the Piña Colada song stuck in your head already? I bet you do. The whole Piñita Colada range contains soya bean oil which comes from community fair trade organisation Gebana in Brazil, rich in essential fatty acids and leaving you silky smooth.
If you fancy a bit of Piñita Colada in your life this summer you have a fair few products to choose from, with a body wash (£5) an exfoliating scrub with real shredded coconut (£15) their famous body butter (£6 and £14) and a body sorbet for those who like their moisturisers on the lighter side (£8) It’s the perfect range to take on a hot, sunny holiday with you, or if you’re staying at home this summer you can at least bring warmer shores to you and smell tropical in your local beer garden. It’s the little things!
Piñita Colada is available in Body Shop stores now, have you given it a whiff yet? I’m craving a cocktail already…
