Why: The thought of running off to live on a tropical island is extremely appealing especially when Iâ€™m crammed between two oversized men with a clear aversion to deodorant and other social graces. At these times, I dream about shaking fresh coconuts from trees and living off the land. Then I get off the train, grab an iced mocha and begin planning my next Netflix theme party. Needless to say, my fantasies of early retirement and a computer-free existence dissipate as quickly as the subway stench.
I may not be able to subsist on piÃ±a coladas and live in a bikini, but I can bring a little bit of the islands to my big city life. My morning routine now includes the Ile de Tahiti Coconut Vanille Moana Body Wash and Inu Body Lotion, both made with Tamonoi, a blend of Tamanu Nut and Monoi de Tahiti. These exotic ingredients have been used by the women of Tahiti for centuries to soothe the skin and hydrate both skin and hair, and theyâ€™re doing wonders for my morning commute.
