Acai bowls. They’re everywhere. You might not know how to pronounce the thing, but you’ve seen them photographed enough times, in lifestyle magazines and by countless it-girl instagrammers, to know they’ve replaced froyo as the new (albeit healthy) sweet obsession. If you are a self-confessed acai-crazed devourer, you’ll be thrilled to know that all the ingredients of your favourite fruit bowl can also be an integral part of your beauty regimen. Nope, we aren’t kidding!
St. Ives Oatmeal & Shea Butter Body Wash
An acai bowl would not be complete without the glorious clusters of granola. Use this St. Ives body wash, with the sweet smell of honey oatmeal, and the velvety touch of shea butter, to nourish and moisturise your skin.
L'occitane Almond Milk Concentrate
Loved amongst vegans and non-vegans alike, it’s no wonder almond milk has transcended its role as power food into a coveted beauty product ingredient. L’occitane’s almond milk concentrate is a body cream dream: its silky formula smoothes skin, leaving your body feeling prepped and primed for the day ahead.
Marc Jacobs Honey Eau de Parfum
This Marc Jacobs fragrance, in its quirky, pop art bottle, is a perfect scent for sweet-toothed folk. With notes of orange blossom, honeysuckle and vanilla, you’ll smell like the swirls of honey in the acai bowl you ate for breakfast.
Burt's Bees Beeswax & Banana Hand Crème
There is nothing that seems to compliment honey more than sliced bananas. Burt’s Bees have picked up on this dynamic combination, with their beeswax and banana hand cream—ultra rich in formula, this cream will soothe your hands of any dryness, whilst leaving them smelling of sweet, ripe bananas.
Unlike a lot of lipsticks/stains/glosses that are named after fruits whose colour it emulates, Stila’s pomegranate lip and cheek stain is different: it is actually infused with pomegranate extracts. This rich plum shade will give both your lips and cheeks a beautiful flush. Who knew the pomegranate seeds could be used to decorate your acai bowl, and dress your face?
Philosophy coconut frosting shampoo, shower gel bubble bath
As a garnish, coconut flakes are divine. And now, with Philosophy’s coconut frosting three-in-one shampoo, shower gel AND bubble bath, you can ensure you’ll be smelling head to toe of candied coconut. What’s not to love?
Kiehl’s Acai Damage-correcting Moisturiser
With the acai berry bursting in antioxidants, it’s of little surprise that the ingredient can be used in a beauty product. Kiehl’s organic acai moisturiser is light and remedial, and helps rejuvenate your complexion. Why limit yourself to eating acai berries when you can slap ‘em onto your face, as well?
