1. RMS Raw Coconut Cream, $18
Calling all purists. If you want nothing but high-quality, raw coconut at your fingertips – quite literally – then this divine little jar from RMS is for you. It’s simply raw coconut oil that’s been naturally extracted from fresh coconuts. It’s versatile, too – use it for your cuticles, to tame flyaways, or as a mask for your hair. Check out 11 ways to use coconut oil here.
Dealing with dry summer skin? Buff it away with Herbivore’s heavenly scented body scrub. This simple exfoliator is made with sugar to gently nix away dead skin cells and rough spots, virgin coconut oil to intensely hydrate, and coconut milk to soothe and soften your skin.
Drybar just dropped a new Coconut Colada collection for summer, and it’s chock-full of that coco goodness. We’re particularly fond of the Hot Toddy Coconut Colada Heat Protecting Mist, a lightweight spray that helps shield your strands from damage caused by heat styling. It’s the same tried-and-true formula as the original; only it smells like vacay.
4. Kayali Utopia Vanilla Coco | 21, $100
Did someone say paradise? Kayali’s newest fragrance, and the third member of the Intense Collection, is a dreamy blend of pear, jasmine, coconut, sandalwood, and vanilla bourbon. True to Kayali, this EDP doesn’t follow any hard-and-fast rules. Instead, it marries four fragrance groups – citrus, florals, gourmand, and woody – into one bottle for a deeply satisfying olfactory experience. A utopia, if you will!

This one’s fresh off the beauty presses! Coco & Eve launched this shampoo and conditioning duo in mid-June – just in time to nourish hair that might be feeling parched and dull thanks to summer sunshine and chlorine. Scented like coconuts and fig, it boasts the brand’s proprietary ResistHyalTM Hyaluronic Acid technology to infuse major hydration into the hair cuticle.
We’re obsessed with the creamy texture of this coconut-infused highlighting balm from indie brand Inner Beauty. Not only does it glide on and blend out like a dream, but it also imparts the perfect glowy boost wherever it’s applied. Bonus: it’s ultra-hydrating, too, thanks to the inclusion of both coconut butter and coconut oil.
7. Heretic Dirty Coconut EDP, $65
Craving more of a sensual coconut scent versus an overtly sweet or beachy one? Heretic’s Dirty Coconut is the real deal. Made with 100% plant-based ingredients, it blends notes of sandalwood, vanilla, creamy coconut, and cedar for a seriously seductive scent experience. It’s more of a splurge, but we think it’s totally worth the spend.
This handy body wash-infused buffer will definitely take your shower up a notch or two. To use, you simply wet it under running water and then scrub your skin like you would with a sponge or washcloth. When you’re finished, just hang it to dry and then repeat the next time you shower. It’ll last for 14 washes, and we recommend using it when you want more of an exfoliating wash – about once every week or so. The coconut blossom scent is perfect for summer.
Speaking of smelling like you just got back from some glorious island… Lavanila’s The Healthy Fragrance in Vanilla Coconut is a straightforward EDP that smells like Tahitian flowers, rich Madagascar vanilla, and fresh coconuts. You can wear it as a stand-alone fragrance, or layer another on top for a beachy twist to your signature scent. It’s called “The Healthy Fragrance” because it’s formulated with a gentle sugar cane alcohol and pure essential oils.
