I have been waiting to write this article for quite sometime now. The love I have for this product and how I feel after applying it, is unmeasurable. Before getting into details of the actual product, let me just say that I never went crazy with the "coconut everywhere" trend. A few years ago, I'd read about applying coconut almost everywhere on the body, eating it, drinking it; nonstop coconut frenzy. At the time, I didn't have a specific skin related need, therefore didn't jump on the bandwagon. One of my frequent trips to Sephora got me hooked on this lip product and I haven't looked back since. 

The Kopari beauty brand essentially has coconut as its main ingredient in every product. The focus of the brand is on skincare and has a range of products, from toners to body milk. Everything revolves around coconut. I'd like to assume this is the reason the prices are somewhat high, because it is a major trend the last couple of years. Simple coconut can be found at any health food store at an extremely low price and will probably do the same work. So what makes this brand different? The way it combines other ingredients, the convenient packaging and that it's certified as a "clean" brand. This means that Kopari Beauty is vegan, non-GMO, cruelty free and is formulated without silicone, gluten and synthetic fragrances. Granted, all brands should be equally clean but we act as if it's a luxury to have "clean" brands. 

Now that we've done a little background history on the brand, let's discuss this product in particular. Admittedly, I'd heard about the brand through the usual YouTube hype but hadn't paid attention much to the products. I saw plenty of influencers using the coconut melt and all the different ways it was beneficial to the skin. Stepping into the Sephora branch at the time, I made my way towards the skincare section. I looked at the Kopari products for a bit and decided on a limb to purchase this lip treatment. It's been pure love ever since.

Due to frequent traveling or excessive lipstick swatching, sometimes my lips will dry up and look a bit chapped. This is hands down, the only product that works fast enough to repair them. In no way am I saying that I see miracle results; with consistent use and avoidance of other drying products, I manage to save them and bring them back to normal. It is clear-colored, non-sticky and can be worn for hours. I love how lightweight it feels and it's comfortable to sleep in. Besides having one in my everyday purse, there is another one on my nightstand (feel free to judge) which I use after an exfoliation. By morning, my lips are thoroughly hydrated and feel great. If this brand has caught your attention, I'd start with trying out something simple, such as the lip treatment. If the entire notion of paying an excessive amount of money for coconut oil seems ridiculous, we can't blame you. I'm thinking of trying the coconut deodorant next, because I've decided to become a bit extra in 2018. Who's with me? 

Let us know in the comments below if you've tried any products from this brand or if you've found equally well performing products for a fraction of the price. Will the coconut trend every sail away? We'll have to wait and see. 


LOVE,
