Yep, there is a hint of Summer in the UK so I have decided that it’s a tropical isle and have become obsessed with anything coconut scented. Nothing fancy, but over the past week or so I picked up a couple of coconut products and I’m loving using them. The products are:
My Coconut Island Bath/Shower Gel from Treaclemoon (from Tesco about £2/3 for 500ml)
I love this shower gel – a supermarket bargain – it lathers amazingly (especially when using a shower poof thingy. A tiny drop goes a long way with one of those things. It smells of summer holidays so really perks up my morning. Not drying either – so happy days.
I like the packaging of the Treaclemoon products – it’s cute and not cheap looking. So happy to have it on display in the shower.
Boots Ingredients Coconut and Almond Intensive Hair Mask (Boots about £2)
A cheap and cheerful product from Boots, this cost about £2 I think. It’s a nice conditioner, not at all the best I have tried out – but it smells lovely and leaves hair smooth and soft, but not weighed down. My only real complaint with this is that the smell doesn’t really linger on my hair – the main reason I use a nicely scented product is so my hair smells good (the Aussie 3 min miracle is fantastic for this) but this doesn’t last, although it is nice at the point of using it. It isn’t the most amazing conditioner I’ve tried, but for the £2 price tag it’s pretty decent.
I’m considering buying the spray leave-in conditioner from the same Boots range. Has anyone tried this? It’s another cheap one, but my hair could do with some extra moisture so think this could be good for summer and I hope the leave-in element might make the scent last?
So there we have my current obsession – coconut. What do you think of coconut beauty products? Are there any I’m missing out on and should try??

I bought both of these products myself.
