We are living in an age where the earth, the atmosphere and everything in and around it matters, so we wanted to put together an anti-pollution based beauty feature, and then we decided to include some elements of organic beauty, and some natural beauty products too – because all these things matter.
TeamCoco are always striving to find the luxury in everything we do from travel and food, to sourcing the best beauty products in the world. Even a simple hand cream can have the most luxurious feel to the skin, a silky smooth makeup remover can wash the day away, and a night cream can be filled with luxe organic natural products. Sometimes, it’s the little things that count.
We have devised a beauty list of 6 products that fall into the anti-pollution, organic, and natural beauty portfolio that we are literally head over heels in love with, some are exuberant in price and richness, others are simple cost effective luxuries, and all offer beautiful results.
