Frugal Friday: Cruelty-Free Coconut Body Care!

Press Sample

Since I won’t be going on a tropical vacation this summer, I’m going to replicate the experience (well, at least the scent) with the Live Clean
Coconut Milk Moisturizing Body Wash, Hair Mask and JĀSÖN Smoothing Coconut Hand and Body Lotion.
I love me some coconut (in any form) and these products smell like a tropical paradise. PLUS, Live Clean and JĀSÖN are both cruelty-free and free of harsh chemicals so you know you are getting the best care for your body – and everything is under $10.

I’ll start off in the shower with the Live Clean Hair Coconut Milk Mask $3.99 and Coconut Milk Moisturizing Body Wash $5.99.

The first thing I noticed is the eco-friendly reusable packaging which I truly appreciate. This hair mask is a one-minute treatment with five benefits – it hydrates, strengthens, nourishes, shines and smoothes hair, leaving it ready to take on the sticky summer humidity. The recommended use is once a week. It has that lovely coconut tropical scent I adore but it doesn’t linger so it interferes with your fragrance. It’s a little heavy for my fine hair but it does a great job at a ridiculously low price! Live Clean also has coconut milk shampoo and conditioner.

Mmmm, the Live Clean Coconut Milk Moisturizing Body Wash is a delight for the senses. The smell is a heavenly mix of coconut (not yucky synthetic) and tropical flowers. It reminds me of sipping Pina Coladas on a Hawaiian beach.

It creates lots of lush lather that gently cleanses while nourishing skin with coconut milk, apricot oil and vitamins B5 and E. The flip-top bottle is BIG at 17. oz. so you definitely get your moneys worth for just $5.99. There are five other scents: Bali, Vanilla, Fresh, Argan Oil and a new Multi-Purpose Oil Lotion. I will definitely be repurchasing!

Live Clean is true to its name made with biodegradable ingredients and recyclable packaging. Their products are free from harsh ingredients and dyes, parabens, petroleum, silicone, phosphate, phthalates, SLS, and DEA. Cruelty-free and certified organic. NO yucky stuff!

Out of the shower and on to the next step–body lotion. JĀSÖN Smoothing Coconut Hand and Body Lotion $ 9.99 has a nutrient-rich blend of Virgin Coconut Oil and Shea Butter that gives thirsty skin true, long-lasting hydration that smooths and softens.

Wow, the last few years my skin has dried up like the Sahara. I need serious body creams and lotions and if I don’t use them every night I’m right back to Drytown. JĀSÖN Smoothing Coconut Hand and Body Lotion touts itself for “extremely dry skin” and I’ll heartily agree. Though it’s not as thick as other creams I’ve tried, it certainly moisturizes as well AND without being greasy.

It’s nice and long lasting, if I put it on in the morning it lasts until nighttime. Since this is not a Live Clean product, the scent is different. This fragrance smells like a tropical sunscreen. It’s good that the scent dissipates quickly. I much prefer the Live Clean Coconut scent with its mixture of florals.

The JASÖN brand and Live Clean are owned by Hain Celestial, so this body lotion is also cruelty-free, Leaping Bunny Certified and made with certified organic ingredients. It has no yucky parabens, sulfates, petroleum, or phthalates. 

Moisturizing Coconut Body Products

All these products are sold on Amazon, Walmart, Whole Foods and tons of grocery stores and drugstores like Albertsons, Safeway, Fred Meyer and Rite-Aid plus more!

Bottom Line: Live Clean and JASÖN coconut body products are perfect moisturizing products that will make you feel like you’re on a tropical vacation for just pennies! Highly recommended!
