Most Wanted: Elizabeth Grant Island Coconut 3-Piece Kit
For girls who love piña coladas... and have half a brain

When drinking endless piña coladas on a patio just doesn’t cut it, and you feel the urge to smell like your favourite coconutty beverage 24/7, I see two ways of going about it. One: drink more (to the point you’re sweating pure sweet rum and Baja Bob). Or two (and this is surely the route of choice for those who want to keep jobs, be somewhat product members of society, etc.): bathe, moisturize, and scrub until you uncover your inner island girl with Elizabeth Grant’s Coconut 3-Piece Kit.

The multi-pack contains an Island Coconut Body Lotion (240ml), an Island Coconut Body Scrub (300g), one Island Coconut Shower Gel (240ml), and a voucher for a free cheeseburger in paradise (no, not really). What I like best about these products is that they smell authentic, and not like a cheap syrupy hangover. You know what I mean.

It says a lot about the quality of beauty products today that I actually have to write this, but they really do make your skin look and feel great. For one thing, the lotion doesn’t leave behind any of what I like to call ‘moisturizer scum’–you know, that waxy layer of grime that leaves you feeling more Madame Tussauds than silky smooth.

The kit retails for $24.99 at ElizabetGrant.com, and if you really love what smelling like a piña colada does for you, the products are also available for individual sale in larger sizes.
