Loco for Coco
Although summer is now nearly officially over (I was actually at an ‘End of Summer’ party last night), I am still reminiscing. I have fallen head over heels for anything coco. Loco for coco. The smell is summer in a bottle. Nothing conjures up memories of a beach or balmy summer nights more than the smell of coconuts.
My coco-loco-routine is as follows (if, like me, you want to smell of coconuts head to toe):
1. I am washing my hair with Crème de Coco from Bumble and Bumble, which leaves a faint whiff of coconuts upon my tresses. The Murumuru butter, mallow and milk thistle gently cleanse for the softest baby-hair in result. 2. I slather on Jergens Naturals Cocoa Butter body moisturiser, which has a sweet scent of coconuts and almonds that is not sickly, but rather a long-lasting exotic scent.
3. Finally, I dab Body Shop’s Coconut Perfume Oil on my pulse points for good measure. In conclusion, I am dreaming of the Caribbean, even when I’m in a concrete jungle doing my weekly shopping.
