Piñita Colada Special Edition from The Body Shop: How to trick the British Summer


The best way to remind yourself that it's Summer, even if it's raining in the middle of June, is to have a sniff at this new special edition from The Body Shop. It is called Piñita Colada, and believe me, it smells like summer! 

The best way to start my day is to have a shower using the body wash from the line. It leaves me smelling of holidays for 10 minutes!

 I've also been indulging on the body butter with the same smell after said shower. Love it. A perfect summery blend of coconut and pineapple extracts from the Caribbean that immediately take me to a holiday destination. As usual with The Body Shop's butters it is super moisturizing and the smell lasts for some hours. 



To keep with the "get me all the summer theme" I've also been trying out two products from their make up line. The first one is the Instaglow CC cream. I love a hydrated and glowy look for summer, although I am not able to achieve it using this product only. The coverage is close to none, and I use it more as a glowy hydrating cream that also has SPF 20, great for sunny days! I'm using it in conjunction with other foundations and I like the result.

Another product I've been testing lately is the Honey Bronze Drops of Sun. With a syrupy smell, this one is perfect to bronze a bit your complexion without the damage of the solar rays. I add 2 drops to my hydrating cream (the Instaglow CC cream in this case) and it works great. Its matte-shimmer free finish gives my skin the perfect sun-kissed feel I want for a holiday glow, so I am using it a lot.


And finally, a summer scent from Polynesia: Polynesian Island Tiaré. Orange; Tiaré, frangipani and ylang-ylang flowers; coconut; and vanilla compose this luscious island scent. I recommend you go have a sniff at your local store!
