Coconuts for Coconut

coconut beauty products


Coconut is my current favourite scent of all time - I do think its a summer thing. It's uplifting and warming and takes me straight to the beach. Recently I noticed a lot of products containing coconut heads straight into my basked and into my beauty stash. 

The Body Shop Coconut Body Butter

My knees seem to be the bane of my existence right now. They are so dry and gross and no matter what I did to them nothing was helping. Rummaging my beauty stash I found The Body Shop Coconut Body Butter and it was love at first rub? That sounds really wrong but you know what I mean. Rich and melts into the skin with minimal effort leaving skin moisturised and smelling damn fine. Made from Fair Trade Virgin Coconut oil, it has a sweet tropical scent. It’s also one of The Body Shop’s best sellers!

Original Source Coconut Shower Gel

Cheap and cheerful Original Source shower gels have been a staple in my shower routine for years. Typically I buy a few different varieties whenever they go on sale for £1. The Original Source Coconut Shower Gel is delicious, doesnt smell fake and lathers really well. Refreshing and summery with that lovely holiday lingering scent.

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Perfume

You didn’t think I could talk about coconut scented products and not rave about my favourite perfume of all time? This is literally holiday in a bottle. So fresh and warming and so totally uplifting I cant recommend it enough. I always purchase a few of these as they are only ever on sale during the summer months and often sell out!

Models Own Scented Polish in Coconut Cream

Bit of an obscure pick but it is actually coconut scented! O often find scented nail polishes really sickly sweet and very fake smelling. However the latest addition to the Models Own Scented Polish range actually smells like coconut without being over bearing. It’s a tropical, summery scent which is very subtle but enough for you to know its there. The polish is a off cream colour with a slight grey edge - very on trend for the off white nail trend at the moment!

  1. Coconut scent is definitely the best! I would suggest you check out the Body Shop coconut hand sanitizer - smells divine and definitely smells better than any hand sanitizer ;)

  14. Life full with coconuts are the best! At my place, we're loving coconut shake and I'm a bit craze for it also. Anyway, love your post as always and you going to turn me into coconut-obsessed now. *laughs*

  15. Oh I love coconuts. Ideally in a bounty, but beauty products are a close second! The Estee Laude Bronze Goddess perfume sounds absolutely lovely - I will be sure to try this out.
