What is more appealing than the musky-sweet, rich, exotic smell of really high quality coconut products? Nothing, that’s what! Unfortunately, they’re not a dime a dozen-coconut is not the most common of scents used in lotions, hair products and such. Even when such products are found, it is often lower quality, or mixed with other tropical scents.
For anyone who is looking for very high quality, pure-scented coconut products, I have a couple suggestions. Below are my choices for two of the the very best. Both are easy to find, and quite affordable–and also have accompanying products that are very high quality as well.
Nourishing Coconut Milk Conditioner by Organix
Found in most major drugstores, about $6.00
I first tried this product when I was traveling. I forgot to bring conditioner, and I ran in a Walgreen’s, looking for a bottle of Pantene. The two-for-one promotion for Organix Coconut Milk shampoo and conditioner caught my eye, so I opened the lid to take a whiff to see if it was a quality scent, and I was floored! I completely forgot about the good old Pantene, and purchased the Organix products.
They are…wonderful. The coconut scent is one of the best ever. Natural, with a perfect balance of sweet and musk. The shampoo and conditioner are both excellent products, but if you only buy one, get the conditioner. Aside from the scent (which nicely lingers all day) the product is a superb drugstore class hair product, every bit as good as Pantene and Nexxus products, in my opinion.
I have also lately noticed there are “Try Me Free” rebate tags hanging on the bottles, so maybe you’ll get lucky. A note too-every one of the Organix products I’ve smelled have excellent scents: pomegranate, tea tree, vanilla silk, and several others. So, even if the coconut doesn’t float your tropical boat, one of them certainly will!
Skin Trip moisturizer by Mountain Ocean
Available in natural food stores, and sections in grocery stores, about $10
Perhaps like a lot of people, I have been using Skin Trip lotion for over 20 years. It’s a classic, tried and true natural body care product that is so good and reliable, there’s just no reason not to choose it as one of your body care staples. The quality is outstanding: non-greasy, light, unobtrusive, long-lasting, effective.
Of course, for coconut lovers, one of the best features is the scent. All of Mountain Ocean’s products are made with organic, ingredients, so you can bet the coconut smell is natural and pure. It’s just lovely. Also great are all the other products in their line, all with a coconut base: Lip balm, soap, shampoo and conditioners, and more.
The Mountain Ocean website has a handy store locator. Products are found in larger natural grocery stores and natural sections of mainstream groceries. Like I said before, Skin Trip is a staple, and has been around for decades, so chances are, it’s on the shelf of a store very near you!
