Before I begin, I wanted to say that I hope everyone is safe and sound amid these horrible fires. The smoke is supposed to start clearing in our neck of the woods and I am more than ready for it. An at-home 4th grader, a busy toddler and 2 adults trying to work from home has shown us just how much we appreciate the freaking outdoors. Walking around the block, or through the nature park next to our house after a long day of chaos is such a welcome reprieve. Being totally sequestered inside is the pits, man.
Who feels me?
Luckily for me, the wonderful folks at CocoOil sent me their lineup of products to try out!
I mean, how aesthetically pleasing is this?
While I will be saving some of these products until next summer to take for a proper spin, I have been able to try out a couple items.
I tried this texturizing coconut and sea salt spray one morning after taking a shower and applying it while my hair was still damp. I used a t-shirt to scrunch it up (thanks TikTok!) and then threw it up in a headband. If you have never tried headband curls, check out this amazingly professional video I made on YouTube where I show you how!
I left the headband curls in for only about 45 minutes, just long enough to let my hair completely dry. Then I took out the headband and BAM.
Not bad for no heat! The CocoOil Ocean Spray totally gave this ‘do the extra umph it needed. It provided amazing, subtle texture and truly made it feel kissed with sea salt. My hair did not feel weighed down (which is the case with so many other sea salt sprays) and best of all, this stuff smells AMAZING. I mean, alllll the beachy vibes.
I am so happy I was able to try out this product because finding a good sea salt spray has been quite the challenge and this one is definitely going into the ol’ lineup! Especially with headband curls.
A couple of weeks ago, David got a little too much sun on his shoulders and back. I was sad for him, but very pumped to bust out this LIME coconut oil. This stuff also contains aloe vera and smells absolutely delicious. Coconut lime just happens to be one of my favorite scent combinations and this does not disappoint! David said his back immediately felt better, soothed and moisturized.
I also want to mention that CocoOil is a pretty stellar brand. Made in Australia, all the products are organic, fair-trade and cruelty-free. They also make a baby oil with lavender which I may have to order for Miss CJ.
All in all, I am totally impressed with CocoOil! Both of the products we have tried are stellar and smell amazing. I cannot wait to try out the SPF products next summer when we see the sun again – so stay tuned for my thoughts on that!
