Mmmmmmmm, if there is one thing that my dry, sensitive skin appreciates it’s a gentle scrub and a little bit of coconut oil; so you can imagine my delight when in July I discovered that Yes to would be adding “coconut” to their natural skin and haircare line. Of course, fast-forward 4 months later to the end of October and my fall-ready mind had it’s doubts.
I mean, let’s just take a moment to be honest with ourselves and admit that we don’t exactly identify coconut with the fall.
Now forget everything that you know about coconut, because this is not your mama’s tropical Hawaiian, summertime madness, artificial pineapple-ish scented body polish. In fact, this 98% natural scrub is made with practically the entire coconut (yes, shell included… talk about waste not, want not) and a sweet blend of almond oil that gives this hydrating body polish just the subtlest nutty scent.
But I have got to say that my favorite thing about this polish is simply it’s behavior; everyone wants hydrated skin but no one wants to feel greasy, so the fact that the coconut oil and sugar do not separate when left to their own devices makes for a pleasant and even application with each use.
I haven’t yet tried other products from the Yes to Coconut line, but I definitely have my peepers on the shampoo and conditioner (dry, brittle hair alert). What have you tried or would recommend?
