We all went cray-cray for coconuts a couple of years back, but in recent months they seem to have been banished to that ‘superfoods-done-to-death’ territory (also home to blueberries, acai and quinoa). Well coconuts might not be the media stars they once were (so fickle) but they never left our hearts, pantries or beauty cupboards, and we’re just as committed as ever to reaping the benefits of this beauty-boosting ingredient. So we’ve rounded up our pick of the newest and most-talked about beauty products to recently hit the shops – and they just so happen to contain our favorite fruit as a key ingredient. Coincidence? Definitely not.
This antioxidant-packed omega-rich face mask is 100% natural: we’d be licking it off our fingers if it didn’t do such amazing glow-inducing things to our skin.
