We all crave super soft baby skin, but unfortunately, we rarely achieve it. There are so many products on the market today, but it often feels like none are really working. To the beauty rescue comes monoi oil, a centuries-old product that has been used for generations in Polynesia.
Monoi oil is actually coconut oil, so highly refined that it easily acts as a replacement to the human body’s natural oils. The monoi oil on the market today is a fine blend of coconut oil and Tahitian Gardenia flowers (Tiare), which produces both an amazing scent and a product that will make your skin as smooth as the day you were born.
There are several varieties of monoi oil available on the market today: For $15, Bath & Body Works offers Tahiti, Sweetie, a delicious body lotion. $25 will buy you Sephora’s LAVANILA Vanilla Coconut Body Butter. And $36 will help you sooth your eyes and smooth away wrinkles with Zia Natural Skincare Ultimate Eye Cream.
After the first use, you’ll be an easy convert to the amazing moisturizing and smoothing properties of this age-old secret. And in addition to the benefits to your skin, monoi oil will leave the gentle scent of coconut on your skin, following you quietly through your day.
