Dry Skin Goes Coco-Nuts for Three Whishes Coconut Body Wash

Published in: Product Reviews, Skin Care

Trader Joes Coconut Fruit Floe

Three words for ya: Coconut Fruit Floes.


Coconut Water Fruit FloesI 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.

Three Whishes Coconut Body Wash

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 Burt’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
AVAILABILITY: Available now at Nordstrom stores and online at whishbody.com

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,



Magic MikeP.S. Okay, so Magic Mike — where do I begin? At one point in the movie, I leaned over to Marisol and whispered, “This movie has great dialogue,” and she started cracking up!

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.

    Ooh, I’ve recently discovered those coconut fruit floes, too. I’ve been rather coconut obsessed lately. I may have polished off an entire box of Trader Joe’s Toasted Coconut Thins all by myself in about two and a half days!

    Glad you enjoyed Magic Mike. I may have to go check that out — for the “dialogue”, of course!

    I want to go to trader joes now! 🙂

  4. there are COCONUT fruit floes?! Since when??? Gah must check them out! I, too, am obsessed with the mango ones (I went through a period where about half of my paychecks last summer went to Mango bars!!!). And this body wash sounds divine!

    Magic Mike doesn’t even come out here till mid-August, but I think I’ll be going with my bestie :p

  6. Wendy says:

    Coconut bar=yummy! I love coconut and ginger flavored ice-cream, in general :).

    Have heard a lot about Whishes, need to try their stuff some time! Hope your weekend is off to a good meowlicious start!

      Re: Magic Mike, i haven’t seen the movie, but based on the trailers, Channing Tatum does seem to have some amazing dancing chops! Good to know that the movie goes beyond just eye-candy ;).

      PS: I snagged two Cover Girl Natureluxe lip-balm sticks in Hibiscus and Cabernet, and I am quite liking ’em! Cabernet is a lovely natural wine red, but not too intense and Hibiscus is a cute fuchsia/purplish-pink leaning on plum, MLBB shade!

  10. Stef Smith says:

    I’m going to order some of this body wash, because coconut is my absolute favorite scent!

    I watched “Magic Mike” and was kind of disappointed. I loved the dancing scenes, loved them, but I thought the movie tried to be too serious. It’s like the director couldn’t just let it be a fluffy stripper movie, instead it had to have a plot. But I’m very happy that there is finally a movie for the ladies, some beefcake! I am sick and tired of seeing women being exploited, I quite enjoyed objectifying some men!

    Karen! I’ve been busy lately and not checking the blog daily like I usually do. I’ve only just now seen your post about your hard weekend. (I have a lot of catching up on posts to read!) I’m sorry but I’m glad you had a release and got stress (hopefully) out of your system. I’m glad you’re feeling better. I hope and pray you’ll continue to feel better and that you’ll find firmer ground under your feet, that your heart will expand for new opportunities, and that your life will take you in bigger, brighter, ever more wonderful directions. Have a wonderful week and never be afraid to cry. You’ll always have a virtual shoulder in us!

  12. Tiffany says:

  13. artemis says:

  14. Natasha says:
