Summer ready with The Body Shop’s Piñita Colada collection

The Body Shop Pinita Colada collection 2016

This summer, The Body Shop brings a taste of the Caribbean to us in their newly launched Special Edition Piñita Colada collection. With a mix of pineapple and coconut, this is definitely one of the most delicious scents from TBS I’ve come across! Comprising of a scented Body Sorbet, Shower Gel, Body Butter and Body Scrub, this range is so fruity and sweet that you can practically taste this mouthwatering tropical blend!

The Shower Gel ($12.90 SGD) is a delight to use in the shower. It smells fresh, juicy and sweet – a mouthwatering blend of pineapple and coconut. One whiff of it is enough to transport me to tropical paradise, if I closed my eyes I can picture myself sitting on the beach overlooking the gorgeous Caribbean sunset, drink on one hand, book in another. Being soap-free, this shower gel gentle enough that it will not leave your skin feeling tight or dry. The scent doesn’t linger long after you shower so I’d suggest pairing it with the Body Sorbet or the Body Butter.

Piñita Colada Body Sorbet

The Body Sorbet ($19.90 SGD) has a very lightweight fast-absorbing texture that I love. It absorbs almost instantly, and does not leave behind any sticky feeling. The only tiny problem I have with this would be that it might not be moisturizing enough for some people. It’s perfect for the summer but if you’re going to a cold climate, this is not going to work for you.

My favourite from the range would be the Body Scrub ($36.90 SGD) which contains real shredded coconut to gently exfoliate the skin. Since it’s summer, it’s time to take out your bikini and flaunt those legs. But first, exfoliate and get rid of the dead cells. This scrub leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth, plus it’s not too harsh on the skin! I think I’ve found my new favourite scrub!

There’s also the Body Butter ($30.90 SGD) for all your moisturizing needs. This rich cream is said to provide 24 hours intense hydration. While I didn’t have it on for 24 hours, I would say it was very hydrating when I use it throughout a normal 12 hour day. I like to put it on immediately after I shower. Moreover, when we exfoliate, it could potentially strip away the skin’s protective barrier of natural oils. Applying a moisturizer to your skin can help to replenish that natural barrier. 🙂

Final Thoughts

The Body Shop has nailed it with this range! Sweet-smelling Body Scrubs and Shower Gels for a pleasant shower experience and pair them with the Body Sorbet and Body Butter to make it an extravagant spa day in the comfort of your own home. Bring on the summer!
