THE beauty world has gone loco for coconuts. Check out this bunch of innovative buys....
1. Marc Jacobs Under(cover) Blurring Coconut Face Primer, £31, Harvey Nichols
Part of the Coconut Collection – inspired by Marc Jacobs' obsession with coconut water – this primer contains no less than five different forms of the fruit, which combine to moisturise and soften your skin, leaving it primed and ready for make-up.
2. Briogeo Be Gentle, Be Kind Banana + Coconut Nourishing Superfood Shampoo, £24, Cult Beauty
Rinsing your hair in coconut water every time you wash it would be a pretty pricey endeavour, but this smoothie-inspired shampoo is the next best thing, which sees coconut blended with banana to offer you a double dose of antioxidant rich fruity goodness, to gently cleanse hair and scalp.
3. Coco & Eve Sunny Honey Bali Bronzing Foam Medium, £29.90
Following the success of its hero hair masque, Coco & Eve has developed a tanning foam which not only delivers a bronzed glow (you can choose from three different shades) but also gets to work on cellulite and pigmentation.
4. Koconoi Coconut Cleansing Oil, £16, Skinspace
If you tend to have dry skin, you'll be amazed what a difference it makes when you swap from a foaming cleanser to a balm, like this lightweight formula, which contains coconut, roucou and moringa oils. Massage onto dry skin, add water to emulsify then rinse thoroughly.
5. Holy Lama Kewra Coconut Oil Soap, £4.50
Looking to avoid synthetic products in your beauty routine? This all-natural soap is hand made in Kerala, India, using cold pressed extra virgin coconut oil and it's just garnered another accolade, picking up silver in the Free From Skincare Awards. The soap was praised for its rich lather and for cleansing without drying the skin.
6. Herbal Essences Bio:renew Coconut Milk Hydrating Mask, £5.99, Boots
Part of a collaboration with Kew Gardens, this coconut milk mask comes with the Royal Botanic seal of approval and is made with 90 per cent natural ingredients. Use once a week to hydrate your hair and keep your colour looking vibrant.
