Three words for ya: Coconut Fruit Floes.
I brought home a box this week from Trader Joe’s (four for $1.99) instead of my usual Mango Cream Bars, and holy wow, Egyptian mau! — they’re coco-nutty!
You know those coconut juice drinks that come in the tall cans? I like to get one whenever I go to my favorite Puerto Rican restaurant or go out to get Thai food. Well these are like those…except frozen, and more concentrated, and shaped like a Popsicle.
So tasty if you like coconut and fruity frozen desserts.
On these warm evenings at home, I’ve been opening the windows, cranking up the overhead fan, and posting up on the couch in front of the TV (last night it was Hollywood Exes) with a Coconut Fruit Floe.
Since I can’t go to the tropics right now, Trader Joe’s is bringing the tropics to me.
It’s been a nice, relaxing ritual this week, and I’m wondering if these frozen coconut concoctions have had anything to do with my affinity for Three Whishes Coconut Body Wash.
All signs point to yes.
It’s been warm here lately. Not terribly hot, but still hot enough that I’m covered in a sticky layer of sweat by the end of the day (the worst are the backs of my knees, yuck!). So right before bed, I’ve been jumping in the shower to quickly rinse off.
I almost always grab Gud from Burtâ€™s Bees Cherrynova in the mornings after workouts, but at night, Whish’s coconut shower gel ($18 for a 13-ounce bottle) has been my new pre-bedtime jam.
Ahhh… It’s like a coconut daiquiri and a shower under a waterfall, and I love the authentic scent, organic ingredients and moisturizing, cruelty-free formula.
In blending this beauty, Whish left out many drying ingredients like sulfates, as well as parabens, petrochemicals, TEA (triethanolamine) and DEA (diethanolamine), and added moisturizing marvels like organic shea and raspberry butters, and organic aloe, which is the second ingredient on the list.
And to make it even easier on sensitive skin, they added organic marigold and cucumber.
The light layer of moisture it leaves behind after rinsing keeps my skin feeling soft till morning, even if I skip my regular moisturizer altogether before bed.
Score one for coconut lovahs on Team Lazypants!
PRICE: $18 for a 13-ounce bottle

MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: A
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
It really did have good dialogue. I’m serious!
And it wasn’t just naked butts on the screen. There was a real story and character development. Yeah, and naked butts. There’s that, too.
I thought Channing Tatum did great. I’m surprised he never became a professional athlete in real life because he’s extremely athletic. Boy can dance! If I had to battle him on the dance floor, I’d stretch first, and maybe say a prayer, because he can werk!
The movie was a little more serious than I thought it would be, but I think that’s why it’s been appealing to a lot of people. Well…one of the reasons. That and the butts.
