Just like the refreshing mojito cocktail, the new The Body Shop Limited Edition Virgin Mojito Bath and Body collection will keep your skin cool and refreshed. We’re not sure why it’s a virgin mojito since you can’t really drink it anyway…

Created to smell like the real deal, enjoy this zingy “body cocktail” with a cooling texture. The refreshing scent of crisp, fresh mint is blended with a twist of freshly squeezed lime to invigorate the senses.

The collection comes with a body sorbet, body scrub, body butter, shower gel and body splash. Available at The Body Shop stores and price starts at RM35.

A rose by any other name …

If you’re not too keen on the smell of mojito, then check out this new rosey scent from L’Occitane, the Roses et Reines Jardin Secret EDP.

This green, delicate fragrance opens with the citrusy freshness of bergamot and blackcurrant leaves. The essence of rose and magnolia makes the heart of the fragrance, complemented with notes of black tea and a cedar woody base.

It comes in a lovely box that includes a secret place for precious thoughts: Ronsard’s poem is etched onto the card and you can add a personalised message. Available at L’Occitane stores.
