I don't know about you, but when I get even a whiff of a coconut scent I instantly think of hot summer days and beach holidays, ahhhhh. Actually I'm sure we are all slightly nostalgic about the smell of synthetic coconuts due to being slathered in sun cream as children!
Below are four of my favourite body/hair products that all have amazing coconut scents that will transport you to the Caribbean in a single sniff!
Palmers Coconut Oil Body Lotion
Feel Unique £4.00 here | Boots or Superdrug in-store
Palmers are a brand that know how to do coconut scented products well and because of that I'm been using them on and off for over a decade now! Their most recent product I've been enjoying is this body lotion that's actually made with natural coconut oil and is such a natural smell of both fresh coconut and almond oil that's perfect to apply straight after a shower for amazing smelling skin. Aside for the incredible scent it's also deeply nourishing on everyday skin and I imagine slight sunburn in the summer months. This is a lotion I know I will be using all through summer and even taking on holiday with me in a travel bottle!
Bath & Body Works Copacabana Coconut Anti-Bac Hand Gel
eBay £2.45 here
For years now I've been collecting the Bath & Body Works Hand Gels (they go in all my handbags!) as they are strongly fragranced and have the widest range of scents. Copacabana Coconut smells exactly like a tropical coconut cocktails and is incredibly juicy smelling - I literally have to resist smelling my own hands! Handy for out and about (I use them mostly for removing makeup swatches from my hand), when travelling and whenever you want to inhale the amazing scent.
Happiness Is Coconut Lime Paradise Hydrating Body Mist
£3.35 - Select Tesco stores
I love coconut and I love lime so when I spotted this in Tesco it was in my basket in lightening speed. This was purchased at the end of summer so I didn't get to use it as much as I'd of liked so already I've been spritzing myself with it on sunny days as it's so zingy with the lime but rounded off and creamy with the coconut. This is such a unique scent and one I think people would notice, plus it's also got the added benefit of being a hydrating mist that you can spray directly on the skin and rub in after a bath or shower.
OGX Coconut Milk Shampoo
Feel Unique £6.99 here | Boots or Tesco in-store
Lastly I had to include this lovely OGX Coconut Milk shampoo that not only smells divine but has been helping with the elasticity of my hair. OGX shampoo's have been a favourite of mine for quite some time as a selection are SLS-free and affordable for the hefty 385ml bottle. The scent is more of a tropical coconut scent that has a Pina Colada vibe to it making it perfect for spring/summer showers and can be used with the Coconut Milk Conditioner to give that long lasting scent to the hair. A true summer product!
