Good Enough To Eat

Bath smoothies? PB&J eye shadows? That’s right – food-inspired beauty is hot.

Scroll over these picks & see what their ingredients will do for you.


Girl’s Gotta Mango

Calling all tropical girls. Put a little vacay in your soap dish with this sweet-smelling bar that’s vegan, gluten free and all natural. Along with pure mango and papaya, it’s made with virgin coconut and jojoba oils. We love that it balances and conditions your skin as it cleans.


Your Kind of Jam

Everyone’s favorite childhood sammie inspired these smooth, rich shades that are infused with antioxidant-rich cocoa powder. The nine matte and shimmer shadows include Bananas (soft peachy gold with fine gold luster), Jelly (vibrant orchid) and Peanut Brittle (metallic burnt orange). How’s that for feasting your eyes?


Lil’ Cherry Bomb

You’ve heard of cherry lips. Well, here’s the real deal. Okay, we admit – this balm won’t actually tint your lips red (instead, it’s a clear and shiny – perfect for on-the-go hydration). Still, the fun, fruity-tooty packaging is undeniably trendsetting. This kind of cuteness doesn’t just grow on trees; it’s made in Seoul, Korea.


Well, Isn’t This Sweet

The phrase “sugar high” applies to this must-have. It’s a texturizing hair spray infused with sugar for volume and lift. Apply it on damp hair to create volume or use it on dry hair to build a grip-able texture that makes for easy styling.


Thank You Berry Much

A prime pick for anyone craving hydration. The creamy, all-over moisturizer is made with strawberry seed oil. That means omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids that help repair your skin’s moisture barrier. Bonus: It melts in like a dream.


It’s Always Pumpkin Season

You don’t have to wait ‘til fall for your pumpkin fix. Exfoliate with this mask’s key ingredient: pumpkin enzyme, which gently soaks up dead surface skin cells. The enzyme works in tandem with alpha hydroxy acid (to get rid of dullness) and aluminum oxide (to polish skin, similar to microdermabrasion).


Fresh on the Scene

No straw required. Our superfruit “smoothie” melts right into your skin and hair – it’s shower gel, shampoo and bubble bath in one. This triple threat contains an antioxidant complex of acai, goji berry and mangosteen. Perfect for when you need a douse of vitamins A & E.


Nuts About It

Virgin coconut oil and moringa seed oil put their powers together to hydrate your face and wash away makeup. Choose from two ways to use this cleanser: Either mix it with water for a creamy cleanse or slather it directly on your skin (no water) for a balm-like feel.


Listen to Your Nana

Keep this treat in your bag and your skin will never go hungry. Just pop the top and squeeze out a soft hand cream made with banana extract and milk protein. Not only does it moisturize but it gives a little shine.


Know Your Mango

Mangoes were first grown in India over 5,000 years ago and, today, a basket of mangoes is considered a gesture of friendship there. You’ll want to make nice with mangoes because they do great things for your diet and your skin. They help to regenerate skin cells, restore elasticity and keep it moisturized.


Wanna Go Bananas?

Fun fact: Bananas are one of the few foods to contain the six major food groups. Eat up – and nourish your skin, too. Its zinc, selenium and vitamin E may limit your risk for wrinkles. Also, you’d never expect: Banana peels are believed by many to heal mosquito bites (try massaging them on your skin for instant relief from itching).


Berry, Berry, Quite Contrary

Strawberries are sweet – and a bit quirky: They’re the only fruit to wear their seeds on the outside! (To get technical, they’re not truly a fruit because of this fact – they’re in a group of their own.) Embrace their individuality and beauty benefits. These pretty edibles are known to clear up acne and oiliness, whiten teeth and leave skin supply smooth.
