Hello everyone, I haven’t blogged for almost a week as I have been super busy with work but even though my blog is relatively new I was missing it! I’ve had this post in mind for a while so I’m happy that it’s finally up.
I am off to Mauritius and Dubai in six weeks time as my little sister is getting married! We will only be away for 10 days but want to make the most of a summer beauty regime whilst being away as Autumn is round the corner people!
As you can see from the pics (that flipping coconut was a nightmare to crack open) and title I have purchased everything for my holiday with a coconut scent. Yes I literally want to smell of raw coconut for 10 days solid, I find it is the most tropical, summer, fresh scent around and I am obsessed with it.
I have never tried any of these products, but when they arrived I was like a hound dog making sure they had that sweet exotic coconut scent I was looking for. They do 🙂
So for hair I got the OXG Nourishing + Coconut milk shampoo and conditioner, they were £6.99 each from Boots. They contain Coconut milk, Coconut Oil and whipped egg white proteins (yuk!) …which are supposed to help add strength, elasticity and hydration to the hair – which I will need being in the sun all day, the scent of the conditioner is stronger than the shampoo and I may comb this through my hair when wet to really work in, almost like a treatment. Actually can any of you recommend a coconut hair treatment or leave in conditioner?
For shower I got the Original Source Coconut and Shea butter which was £2.30 from Boots. According to the bottle it took 7,872 tropical hrs to make this shower gel, which initially made me feel a bit guilty for only paying £2.30, …surely that’s not hrs for producing one bottle!? Anyway I also love that this product is vegan it’s 100% natural fragrance, with natural moisturisers, it’s a recyclable bottle (word for saving the planet) and the best bit tested on humans, that’s right; leave the fur babies alone! 🙂 it smells lush btw.
My first thought for body butter and Scrub was the body shop, they do fab range of coconut products however I made a bit of a mistake with this order on line as I ordered the mini sizes, ugh! I should have realised this as I think I paid £3.50 for each one. It stresses me out that I can hardly make it into town, I literally live in a digital world. The coconut body butter looks really thick and creamy, not going to lie I have a feeling it’s gonna take a lot of work which I am not looking forward to in that heat. The coconut body scrub is to smooth and refine skin which is great for beach holidays, I’m hoping exfoliating my skin gives it a glow, it’s also made with cold-pressed virgin coconut oil from Samoa, Polynesia…oooooh fancy.
The final product I got again from boots is the Kind Natured moisturising Coconut oil lip balm, and that was £3.49. I must admit I didn’t think this one through and I’m having second thoughts about using this during the day on holiday, do I really want to be putting an oil based product with no SPF on my mouth when it’s a 1000 degrees outside? Nope. Think I may save this for the evenings. I really like the look of this brand and it is the first time I have seen it, they had some great products to choose from, Ill try this one first see how I like it, Its a 15mil squeezy tube and applicator looks like a lip gloss one. It is 97% natural and free from Sulphates, Parabens and Petrochemicals (I have no clue what that is, but it sounds scary)
I’m really looking forward to using all of these products, yes I have gone completely overboard with this scent, I’m hoping they live up to my expectations, I will be sure to let you know.
Whilst I’m on this post, I’m thinking of vlogging this trip in Mauritius and Dubai, what do you think? would you be interested in seeing the hotels, the wedding!, food, airports, comment below??
