I don't know how it's happened since I'm hardly a huge coconut lover, but coconut has somehow entirely infiltrated my skincare routine. I now step out of my bathroom smelling like a tropical holiday (or Hawaiian Tropic - I haven't decided yet) and my skin is incredibly soft thanks to these three products.

My go-to in the shower is the Body Shop Coconut Body Scrub (£13). It's a whopping tub of creamy coconut and soybean, filled with tiny bits of coconut shell that gently buff your skin and leave it feeling soft and moisturised. As exfoliators go it's middle of the line, so not too harsh but still sloughs away at the skin. If I'm looking for some extra scrub then I like to use the Body Shop Skin Sponge (£5), which is actually made out of recycled plastic bottles and exfoliates like a dream. My only complaint about the body scrub is that those little bits of coconut shell are a nightmare to wash away and I end up standing in a puddle of black dots, although it's nothing that a careful rinse of the shower can't fix.

Once out of the shower I like to use plain organic coconut oil (£6) or Dr Organic Coconut Oil Body Soufflé (£9.49). There's no rhyme or reason to which I pick but I suppose it comes down to a matter of personal preference. It goes without saying but the coconut oil is, er, oily, while the body soufflé has a very rich, creamy, body butter texture. The soufflé absorbs into the skin fairly quickly but its thick texture means it's a little tricky to spread evenly. The coconut oil, on the other hand, takes longer to sink into the skin but definitely has a luxurious 'pamper me' feel to it and there's something incredibly satisfying about rubbing oil onto freshly shaven legs.. am I right?

What are your current shower favourites? Have you tried out any of these products?
