The Body Shop Piñita Colada – Is it the perfect shower cocktail to brighten winter skin?

I love bath and body products, there’s nothing quite like a hot shower with a scented shower gel to transport you into a haze of solace and tranquility! So when I saw The Body Shop’s latest flavour ‘Piñita Colada’, I just had to try out the Shower Gel and Body Polish.

Description
The Body Shop describes the flavour as a ‘irresistible summer scent that evokes the aroma of freshly blended pineapple, coconut flakes and refreshing coconut water.’
The Shower gel is described as ‘The lightweight textures will quench your skin with moisture and leave you feeling refreshed no matter what the weather.’
The Body Polish is ‘Blended with real shredded coconut this exotic exfoliator with a deliciously tropical scent helps reveal smoother, summer-ready skin.’

After reading that, I was so enticed and curious? I had so many questions:
1) Is using it, going to transport me to the beach, where I can lay in the sun and sip cocktails?
2) How strong is the scent, am I going to smell like a cocktail all day long?
3) Is it the perfect shower cocktail to brighten my Winter skin?

My experience
The packaging is bright, colourful and cheery. I love it, it goes perfectly with the flavour ‘Piñita Colada’.
The Shower Gel is lightweight and lathers quickly, it actually creates quite a rich lather. The scent is absolutely intoxicating, as I turned on the shower and the steam began to rise, I was lost in a summer beach haze. It fills you with a sense of calm and relaxation. You can smell the pineapple and the fresh coconut. It’s smell so good, you almost want to drink it!
The Body Polish has a creamy texture with a thickish consistency. It doesn’t lather so you have to work it into your skin. The polish is actually quite smooth for an exfoliator.

My thoughts
So what are my thoughts on the The Body Shop Piñita Colada Shower Gel and Body Polish?
The Good
I love the smell, it’s just so wonderful and makes you feel so fresh and relaxed! I like the fact that although your bathroom smells fruity and yummy, your skin afterwards just has a slight scent. It’s light and quite mellow. The Shower Gel lathers easily and the lather is rich so you feel clean. The Body Polish can be easily worked in and isn’t too rough. It gives you a nice deep cleanse and it doesn’t have a drying affect on your skin.
The Bad
The Shower Gel left my skin feeling clean but that’s about it, it didn’t much else for my skin. The Body polish does give your skin a deep clean but I don’t think it’s a very good body exfoliator.
The Ugly
There’s no ugly, it’s not a bad product but nor is it a great product.

Q & A
1) Is using it, going to transport me to the beach, where I can lay in the sun and sip cocktails?
– Yes, most definitely! The scent is amazing and I was lost in a summer daze!

2) How strong is the scent, am I going to smell like a cocktail all day long?
– After my shower, there was a slight lingering scent. It didn’t hang in there air, it was subtle enough for me to know it’s there but not strong enough to overpower my perfume!

3) Is it the perfect shower cocktail to brighten my Winter skin?
– Well, Yes & No. Yes, the scent is fresh and bold and washes away my Winter Blue. But I’m afraid there was no difference in my skins appearance. It did brighten my day but not my skin
