Moi-meme Monthly - The Coconut Box - August 2021

Hello and welcome to another Moi-meme monthly box! If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time you’ll know that I’m a big fan of this subscription service and look forward to it every month. This month’s box is coconut themed, in honour of our much loved beach holidays – a distant memory of the past, but hopefully they’ll be back soon!


Here's what Moi-meme had to say about this months box:


The heatwave may have passed but this month’s ox will have you picturing yourself in the Caribbean in no time: the gentle crash of the waves, palm trees swaying above your head and a coconut shell filled with fruity rum punch in your hand. Our latest edition is a celebration of the coconut – a multipurpose mystery (is it a fruit? A nut? A seed!?) that brings something special to everything from sun cream to cooking oil to Bounty bars.”



As with my last post I’m trying something a little bit different and creating a little video to accompany my post. If you’d like to watch it just head over to my new YouTube channel and watch it here. So, without any more talking from me, let’s have a look at what I got in this month’s box!


Dock and Bay – Cracked Coconut Beach Towel

The first item I pulled from the depths of my box was this rather attractive beach towel. Dock and Bay have revolutionised holiday towel by using recycled plastic to create them. Not only is this a massive plus for the environment, but the design of the towel will dry you three times faster than the standard cotton towel – so it’s convenient to! Even better, the towel doesn’t get sand stuck to it so you don’t have to worry about brining half the beach home with you.


I do rather love the cracked coconut design on the towel itself, and it’ll be absolutely perfect for it we manage to go on our holiday to Mexico later this year. The neat and compact pouch will also come in handy and ensure it doesn’t take up too much space in my suitcase.


Dr. Botanicals – Cocoa & Coconut Superfood Reviving Hydrating Mask

Time outside with prolonged exposure to the sun can leave our skin feeling a little dryer than normal, so this mask was included in this month’s box to add some much needed hydration back into the skin. This mask is packed full of antioxidants and fatty acids to protect the skin, while also helping to smooth and hydrate it.


I was slightly hesitant to try this mask out, simply because coconut in skin care tends to not agree with my skin. Nine times out of ten it’ll clog my pores and give me a minor breakout. However, upon trying this mask for the stated 10 minutes and then following up with a cleaner, I can confirm that  my skin was fine. It felt soft, supple and moisturised without any pesky spots appearing as a result.


Joey Koala Toasted Coconut Gourmet Caramel Popcorn

Makers of gourmet, air-popped popcorn, Joey Koala have devised their own recipe to coat the corn with their own caramel. This toasted  coconut popcorn is on theme with the box, and combines the delicate flavour or coconut with the sweetness of caramel.


I always look forward to the sweet treat in my Moi-meme boxes, and this one did not let me down at all. Rather than eating it right away (which is my norm to be honest) I saved this one for a movie night with the Husband. As is usual for everything chosen by Moi-meme it was absolutely delicious, and rather moreish.



All in all I really liked this box, and it’s very handy to have another item ticked off the list of things I need for my holiday later in the year. So thank you Moi-meme for yet another fantastic box!
