Coconut obsession

I seem to have developed a little coconut obsession of late. I literally cannot get enough of the smell of the things. Every shower and moisturizing product has to be coconut scented right now. I can only think it must be because it reminds me of hot summer holidays, and is just such a gentle comforting scent to apply before bed. So I thought I'd share with you my current shower time favourites.

These little bargains have been the result of my coconut addiction. Although I did look for a slightly fancier coconut flavored shampoo (with no avail), I have been very pleasantly surprised by this range considering it's on the cheaper end of the market.
The Shampoo and conditioner were both £1.29 (I know, crazily cheap?!). They leave my hair squeaky clean and smelling divine, which I was super surprised about considering they are so cheap. I find whenever my hair is feeling a little dull, it's time to change the shampoo routine, and these have livened up my hair a treat.

The body butter was only £3.05, and I am especially in LOVE with it. It's not too thick like some body butters tend to be, it still has a lovely lightness to it and sinks into the skin really quickly.
This just goes to show me that I don't always have to spend tons to get nice quality products, there are a few hidden gems in the drugstores, it's just finding them!
I'll definitely be purchasing all of these again though.

Do you have any other coconut scented products or candles you would recommend to me right now?

Have you tried any of these products before? Do you ever get scent obsessions or is it just me being strange?!

  12. You would love the Coconut shampoo by Organix then!!! I love it for the summer. It makes me feel like I am at the beach!


  13. I've tried out the Boot's Coconut shower gel which I really loved and I also really like the coconut products by The Body Shop. I really love the Radox coconut smoothie - the little bits are really good for exfoliating haha.

    Would really recommend you checking out the Body Shop body mist in coconut, it would be great for layering over your shower & body products to make the coconut fragrance last a little longer :)
