Coconuts and Glitter | E & B Coconut Products
Coconut is an ingredient that’s literally taken the world by storm recently! Since introducing coconut products I’ve seen a massive improvement. Now I don’t just mean beauty wise, but also food wise.
As much as coconut oil isn’t the most pleasant smelling ingredient, or sometimes the nicest, it does have wonderful health benefits. Well, at least I’ve found that for me they do given everyone is different I can’t speak on general front.
The first beauty related coconut product I started using was coconut water on my hair, which is really dry and brittle. I also began using it on my daughters hair as well, and we both had impressive results! I noticed that our hair was shiner and less frizzy, not to mention it had the appearance of being thicker. By now I was very interested to start branching out into more coconut beauty products!
My wish came in the form of a small handmade skincare range called E & B Coconut Products from Queensland Australia. Let’s start with the name. It’s actually the first initial of both of the creators children, how adorable is that?! The entire range was actually born out of their mums desire to ease her children’s irritated skin. You know something is definitely going to pass the test for natural and ideal for sensitive skin, when it’s conception came from children with sensitive skin.
On that topic, for the record, the products are all completely natural and free from chemicals, additives and all that jazz. While also having the added benefit of being handmade, which I always love! Some of you will know by now that I love advertising and highlighting handmade Australian products. Okay, enough of my rambling…let’s talk about the products!
On a slight side note, you may notice that next to some of the products I’ve included a scent and/or colour. That’s because for some of the products allow you to select a scent or a colour! Which is such a cool feature, you guys know what I’m like for personalised products. On the website it lists what is in each of the scents, and for colours I believe the world is you oyster. If you can dream it, E & B Coconuts will try and achieve it within reason of course!
Clear Lip Balm
For starters, let’s just assume that every product here smells so good you’ll want to eat it. They’ve all got some coconut element to them, so that sort of speaks for itself. This is such a lovely lip balm and is the definition of a little goes a long way! You scoop a little bit and as soon as it touches your lips, it melts and becomes so spreadable. I’ve actually been using this non-stop since it arrived! The coconut in it makes it incredibly nourishing for my lips. l
Lipstick – Saturn
So, there is something really quirky about this lipstick range they have. Each one of them is named after a planet! No, I swear I’m not joking. How original and unique is it?! If my daughter was older and had a science or astrology teacher, I would seriously be getting them this set!
The shade I selected was Saturn, it was a shade that I thought I would get the most use out of. I love the fact that it’s natural and has the same texture as the gloss so it melts onto the skin. I started to pair it with a nude or natural pink lipliner as a base, to make it last longer. Doing this also elevated the colour and it’s depth, I found.
On another side note, no you’re not mistaken the pots are actually quite too big. A little bit too for my liken, which sounds weird! But I’m a fan of tubes or little pots, apart from this I love this!
Pure Coconut Cleansing Milk Powder: Face Mask with fragrance Clinque Terre
I’m not going to lie, I was a little bit apprehensive about trying this product. It quite literally smells like something I need to dig my spoon into. Not something that belongs on my face as a mask or to use as a cleanser. This is one of those times were I was really forced to eat my words.
It turns out that something can smell like amazing edible food can also be an incredible skincare product. As a mask, it leaves my skin feeling insanely clean, silky and nourished. When it comes to using it as a cleanser, I’m completely smitten! Okay, yes, it’s a little bit tricky at first as it’s a dry powder cleanser. But I tend to make it in a similar fashion to the mask, and mix it all up in a little bowl. I actually love using this as a cleanser! It’s the perfect first or second cleanse and leaves my skin feeling so soft and hydrated. Definitely got myself a new favourite cleanser!
Pure Coconut Moisturiser with fragrance Ravello
I love this! It smells amazing and it feels amazing. This is another product that embodies the whole “a little goes a long way.” It can be used both on the body and the face as a moisturiser. This actually feels incredibly luxurious on your skin and melts like butter. My skin feels so insanely hydrated and replenished straight away and nourished and fresh in the morning.
Something like this I love to use particularly on my dry skin areas, such as my knees, elbow and ankles. The coconut moisturiser provides some well needed hydration to my prune like areas of skin.
Shimmer Oil in Primrose Pink with fragrance Venice
You know when you find a product and you can already see a perfect use for it? That was how I felt when I first tried this oil. It smells amazing and looks absolutely memorising the way the colour shimmers. All I could see was how amazing my legs would look in summer with this beautiful shimmer oil on them. Yes, I know it sounds a little vein! But I justified it in thinking I would look like one of those models with the beautiful oiled up shimmery legs.
It leaves my skin feeling soft, silky and hydrated! On top of smelling amazing and shimmery. I’m imagining a need to hit some music festivals this summer using this amazing shimmer oil to get that coveted glow!
Organic Coconut Sugar Scrub
This has currently stolen the position of favourite scrub to date. Which is saying something for me! You guys all know how much I love my scrubs! Normally I use them a few times and switch them out, but not this one. This one has been sitting in my shower for around 3-4 weeks now.
It goes without saying that it smells so darn good! This is one I really struggle to not eat. Out of all the products, this is one that I was most looking forward too. Mainly because I used a sugar scrub a long time ago and absolutely loved it! It’s incredibly gentle on the skin and leaves my skin feeling so soft, smooth and literally glowing! Did I mention that it’s also got glitter in it? So my skin also sparkles. Need I say anymore?
So there we have it! What did you think? Any products catch your eye? Let me know in the comments below!
Until next time!
