Summertime Virgin Mojito

It finally feels like summertime, which can only mean one thing – mojitos!

DSC03877Mojitos are my go-to cocktail in the summer months, so I was thrilled when the lovely people at the Body Shop got in touch about their new Virgin Mojito range.

The lime and mint really come through, with a little hint of cucumber – although that isn’t listed – and it’s a really fresh, summery scent. I’ve always loved Body Shop body butters in particular, and the virgin mojito one is no different. It’s thick and creamy, but with a light scent, meaning it’s not overpowering.

      How can you not like mojitos!? They are my absolute fave. I really like the range because it’s not too overpowering – it’s great if you aren’t a fan of the cocktail like yourself! 🙂 I agree, they have some classic products – they are a bit of a staple in my house! x

  • I don’t like Mojitos and I like some booze in my cocktails haha but my favourite is sex on the beach
