Native Unearthed Coconut & Vanilla Natural Deodorant Balm
This all-natural deodorant cream is nothing short of a great leap forward! Using high performance, all-natural ingredients, it forgoes chemical nasties in favour of plant-based ingredients like sweat-absorbing arrow root, antibacterial coconut oil, and soothing shea butter. It forms an invisible shield, that won’t irritate skin, to keep odour in check.

Merci Handy Love & Hand Cleansing Gel
Throughout the day our hardworking hands help us carry everything from our weekly food shop to our handbag and mobile but, unfortunately, it means that they’re the carriers of unwanted germs too! Wave goodbye to unwanted bacteria and stay healthy with these cute-and-colourful antibacterial gels from Merci Handy! Unlike other hand sanitisers, they’re enriched with emollient beads and vitamin E to hydrate and nourish your skin while fighting bacteria. Plus, their new Hello Sunshine scent smells just like summer in a bottle!

Cocofina Organic Coconut Oil
Cocofina’s founder was born in Kerala a.k.a the ‘land of coconut trees’. So, naturally, when it comes to finding the best quality coconut products you know you’re in safe hands with Cocofina! This blend of 100% organic coconut oil is cold pressed, virgin, unrefined, and sourced from a very special species of coconut. Plus, the oil is extracted from the flesh of the coconut for extra nutrients. It’s the ultimate in natural multi-purpose beauty as you can use it to remove make-up, cleanse skin, hydrate hair, moisturise, and more!

Benefit Galifornia
We’ve never been satisfied with basic blushes. Too often, they look amazing in the compact but leave behind flat streaks of colour. Not so with this pink powder. It’s blended with a gorgeous shimmering gold, inspired by the warm glow of California sunshine, to add the prettiest pop of colour to cheeks. Oh, and it smells of pink grapefruit and vanilla. (As if it could get any better?!)

Baïja Paris Crème Moana
It might be grey skies outside but, thanks to this tropical lotion, it’s summertime in your bathroom! Packed with coconut oil, shea butter, cupuaçu, and jojoba wax – this lotion is brimming with sunshine-ready ingredients to nourish dry skin. Oh, and the Tiarè flower adds a beautifully exotic fragrance that lingers long after you’ve massaged it in.

Scrub Love Coconut Mango Scrub
A good body scrub will leave skin feeling smooth, but dryness and irritation shouldn’t come with the package. This all-natural formula uses hydrating coconut oil and naturally exfoliating coconut shell to gently slough away dead skin cells. While mango butter deeply hydrates and moisturises any dry patches, long after you’ve stepped out of the shower. Bonus: it smells like a tropical paradise!
