The beauty product of the year, coconut has pretty good street cred among devotees of the tropical, milky fruit. From nourishing cuticles to whitening teeth, if you’re unlikely to go down the natural route - here are the best coconut products you need to apply everywhere.
For your lips: Milk & Co Coconut Kiss
Kiss a coconut with Milk & Co. A local, family-run business, the Coconut Kiss lip balm combines beeswax, shea butter and loads of coconut goodness to create a hydrating lip moisturiser. Lanolin, cacao seed butter and papaya seed oils are some of the other vitamin-enriched inclusions in this humble kiss.
For your feet: Burt’s Bees Coconut Foot Crème
Take some time this week to give your feet some TLC. Combining coconut oil, lanolin, vegetable glycerine, rosemary and peppermint, this nutty foot crème by Burt's Bees will make you feel like you’re walking on coconuts. Very soft coconuts.
For your hands: Glasshouse Fragrances’ Montego Bay
An exotic, sweet coconut and lime hand crème, we’re obsessed with Glasshouse Fragrance’s Montego Bay. This fragrant hand crème nourishes with Argan Oil, Shea Butter, Macadamia Oil and is enriched with rose hip oil. Trust us, your workmates are going to be jealous.
For your hair: Coconut Revolution Coconut Hair Mask
Although you can technically use pure coconut oil as a conditioner, one sad TUL member recently discovered that it might not be the most practical method. Luckily, the Coconut Revolution team love the tropical tree fruit as much as you! The Coconut Hair Mask is a deep conditioning treatment for your hair. Just apply once a week for the silky, lush, sweet-smelling hair of your dreams.
