My mother-in-law just brought me back a bottle of this really cool Hei Poa Aux Fleurs Tahitian Beauty Oil ($16) from her vacation in the Maldives. What's amazing about this product is that it really is all natural—something we rarely see in the States. Because of that, you have to keep it in the refrigerator after opening so it doesn't spoil.
The consistency of this oil is also unique. It changes properties in different temperatures meaning that when it's in the fridge it's a solid, and when it mixes with your body heat it becomes a liquid. It's an unbelievable body moisturizer and it also does wonders for restoring hydration to the ends of your hair.
The oil is made in Tahiti and the name, "Hei Poa," means red flowers - crown of the green valley. This is perfectly titled since the oil is made from Tahitian coconuts and at least ten fresh tiara flowers. One whiff of it and your mind can't help but to instantaneously wander to a perfect day at the beach.
To use, take a little scoop from the bottle and rub it all over your body. Keep in mind that just a little bit will go the distance to cover your whole body and once it liquefies it spreads quickly!
A whole bottle is going to last you for eons. You can equate it to that really large container of Vaseline that's been sitting in your parents medicine cabinet since childhood! I love this oil and I think you will too. I can't wait to hear your reviews!
