With the launch of The Body Shop's Virgin Mojito collection, we can't help but notice how cocktails inspire fragrances, bodycare and even skincare

Cocktails are having a moment and no beauty category is exempt. Skin Inc's My Daily Dose is a customised serum that allows you to create a bespoke solution for your skin condition — based on ingredients from its supplement bar — and even pick the pretty, coloured bottle that it comes in.
