Weekend Reads | I Love Coconuts!
The good old coconut. Exotic, sweet smelling and miraculous and no matter where in the world you are, you can enjoy the wonderful benefits that coconuts bring. The beautiful people of the world including the gorgeous Miranda Kerr attribute their glowing, youthful looks on coconut oil, coconut milk and coconut water so I naturally gravitate towards all things coconut!
INIKA is a great brand that I recently discovered and it’s been love ever since. Their Liquid Mineral Foundation includes a tonne of oils but one of them is coconut oil which is known to be ultra hydrating on the skin.
Champney’s Citrus Blush Body Scrub is a beautifully scented scrub (reminds me of Indian chai tea!) with coconut fibres which smooth the skin.
All you need to make this scrub are three things: coconut milk, coconut oil and salt!
My bathroom cabinet is filled to the brim with products but one thing I’ve been using lately is the Dirty Works Coconut Caress Body Wash* which smells so good you just want to eat it!
This hands down is the best DIY hair mask I’ve made ever. My hair was still so soft many days after using it. It’s so simple to make too!
Karamel & Brown is a tanning brand with products specifically formulated for women of colour. Their Glow Mousse* not only leaves your skin with a beautiful, bronze glow but it has a coconut scent to it so instead of smelling like a pack of soggy biscuits, your skin’ll smell like coconut!
