Summer Coconut Mania! My Top Picks: Coconut Bath and Body Products


Nothing to disclose

Imagine you're somewhere in the tropics, sippin' some fresh coconut juice, baskin' in the sun, flippin' magazines. Ah the ultimate summer vacation!

Coconut = Summer. Is it just me? This recent obsession for all things coconut-ish is no longer a coincidence. Look, I smell coconut from head to toe!


Let's start from my hair...


I bought this Alba Botanica Hawaiian Shampoo and Conditioner combo at Target. If you're new to Alba Botanica line, it's noteworthy to mention that it's 100% vegetarian, cruelty-free and is devoid of artificial colors, parabens, pthalates and sodium lauryl sulfate. Here's a quick list of ingredients for your reference:

Did you see pineapple extract? Good! because the scent of this hair combo reminds me of pinacolada! It's so tropical-smelling I can't get enough of it. 

Okay, it's time to moisturize my body. 


I have reviewed this body butter from Victoria's Secret no too long ago. Sunkissed is one of the eight luminous body butters from the Pink line. It smells like coconut with a hint of vanilla. It's quite thick but not greasy.  

Of course, my lips need to be hydrated as well. 


This coconut roll-on lip balm from The Body Shop is a recent find. I think the rollerball adds a fancy feel to it. It has no cooling-effect but it definitely moisturizes my lips day and night.

So let's spritz some of that coconut scent baby! Lately, I have been wearing this body mist to work....


The past days had been very humid so I skip wearing perfume and opt for mist. This Coconut Body Mist is so light and refreshing, I can spritz a million times!

Some days I go for Bath and Body Works Aruba Coconut....


What about you? what's your favorite summer fragrance?

    1. I too live in the tropics and sometimes I forget about the beauty of living in an island. People around the world save up money to go to Hawaii so whenever I see them basking in the sun, flipping magazines and sipping pinacolada, I am reminded to be appreciative of my 'lil paradise :-)))
