Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush Tropical Coolers

These are worthy of a mention. Behold, Victoria's Secret New Beauty Rush line up entitled Tropical Coolers:

I'm not going to say these are amazing because they are sadly not. However, I was drawn in when I seen the display and scent selection. I found myself heading to the till to pay for three bottles while struggling to hold them all in my arms. I made it safely there and before I knew it I had shelled out $24 USD and tax.

I've tried Victoria's Beauty Rush Body Double Mist before but as I said I was tempted by these new scents. If you're unfamiliar with these they are simply a dual layer fragrance that mixes a fragranced water base with a fragranced oil base. This basically translates as you're getting a moisturizing scented body spray!

They work fabulous on wet skin and it's kinda the feeling of a dry oil spray that conditions, softens, and leaves behind a gorgeous scent.

Sadly, the thing that I dislike about these is the scent doesn't linger nearly as long as I'd like. When you spray on the first time you get a super healthy amount of fragrance that smells both fresh and fruity however the staying powder is zero and within an hour you'll need to retouch up sadly. This could be my body chemistry that sucks the scent right in but it does happen to my sister too so I'm not the only one experiencing the problem with these!

I'm quite upset at this because I do generally love the scents they put out and I've tried virtually all of 'em but they don't linger at all!

The three that sucked me in were from a new line entitled Tropical Coolers. It's three new scents that are called Lotta Colada, Punchy, and Mango Madness! All three are super duper sweet and fruity and true to the name.

Shown below after being shaken. Once shaken the oil and water base combine to create a beautifully, conditioning body spray!

For the price you can't really not avoid picking up one or two up to try out. They aren't nearly so nice to tote around in your bag for touch ups since they are so big.

They really smell sincerely if we can convince Victoria's Secret to make them a touch stronger we'd have a winner here!

Tried these?

Love 'em?

Not so much?

Tell the Muse!
