I can tell you that I’ve smelled some truly dreadful ‘Tahitian’ inspired beauty products and I’m happy to say this isn’t one of them. It’s ridiculously delicious! This one isn’t heavily laden with a body blow of vanilla (fine for ice-cream, not fine for beauty cream) but instead is vibrant with coconut, tiare and ylang-ylang and really does smell like the holiday of your dreams.
From the M&S Global Escape Tahiti range I have the Fragranced Body Mist which does give a little alcohol hit at first, but settles to quite a gentle fragrance in the end that doesn’t last all day. This is a good thing in my book in this instance because it just means you need to add more and then get the scent all over again. The Conditioning Salt Scrub does exactly as you’d expect but I felt a bit sad scrubbing away at my body in my bathroom when my nose is in Hawaii!
I think if you want a nice little hit of holiday, the M&S Global Escape Tahiti is very reasonable at £5 for the mist, £10 for the washbag (rather small) and £8.50 for the salt scrub. There is also a shower cream (£4.50), a diffuser (£12) and an oil (£9.50). In the heat of summer, you’ll be reaching for a floral garland and desperate for a lagoon swim.
The M&S Global Escape Tahiti range has a buy one, get one half price on it at the moment but not everything is online. You can find it HERE.
