4 Ways We Are Cleaning Up Our Personal Care Routine



kopari-coconut-products-natural-health-toothpaste-bodycareGood morning!

We are back on the blog today with a topic that is very important to us: clean beauty and personal care! One of our 2019 goals is to clean up the beauty and personal care products we use on a daily basis. From toothpaste to cleansers, there’s a brand in particular that is making it easy to get safe products at affordable prices {and that still work}! This brand is KOPARI!

In case you are new to Kopari, this beauty brand is based in La Jolla, CA and creates products utilizing 100% pure, organic coconut oil sustainably sourced from small family farms in the Philippines. Their products are made with the purest intentions because they are “unnaturally obsessed with all things au naturel” as they like to put it. We are definitely all about that!!



As a little background, Lindsay and I both suffer from hypothyroidism. We haven’t yet done a full post on this yet so we will just touch on it quickly today. It creates dry skin, brittle hair and several other not so fun issues. So not only do we need extra hydration, but we also want to eliminate as many unsafe chemicals in our routines as possible. We don’t want our bodies to have to work on eliminating unnecessary toxins when we are already struggling to have enough energy as it is.

This is why we love Kopari! They work non stop to create products that are beneficial and have great results but without comprising ingredients. They believe everything you put onto your body matters – which we 100% support!

From skin to hair to personal care, Kopari makes clean coconut products for your every day needs.

Let’s get started on sharing 4 ways we have cleaned up our personal care routine!

STEP 1: Change Our Toothpaste

One of the newest products to debut at Kopari.com is their Coconut Toothpaste. It’s available in the original “minty coco” and “minty charcoal” options as well. We have tried both of them and they are great!! We’ve both been using fluoride-free toothpastes for quite some time but these new Kopari options are even better!

Kopari shared that their toothpaste works to naturally restore enamel, whiten teeth and freshen breath without any of the nasty chemicals. Both coconut toothpaste options are fluoride-free with a clean alternative that helps to strengthen and repair enamel on teeth.

The charcoal option is formulated with activated charcoal for extra whitening while working to capture toxins that cause staining and bad breath. We love that both toothpaste options are vegan, gluten-free, fluoride-free, sulfate-free, and have no artificial sweeteners!


Step 2 : Incorporate Oil Pullers Into Our Dental Routine

If you are new to oil pulling, this dental hygiene ritual is an age-old remedy rooted in Ayurvedic medicine that uses coconut oil to clean and detoxify teeth and gums. It has the added effect of whitening teeth naturally allowing your pearly whites to shine through. Kopari recommends that you swish oil in the mouth for 5-15 minutes every day to make your “whistle-whiter and breath-brighter”. Those results definitely sound enticing to us!!

Their 14 day trial pack {as shown above} includes 14 oil pulling pouches which reduces plaque and leaves teeth whiter, brighter and your mouth detoxified. It is available in Coco Mint and the Coco Collection which includes Coco Mint, Coco Colada and Coco Vanilla.

I started oil pulling a few years ago and noticed benefits after a week or two. I ended up stopping since of the mess and having to keep a huge tub of coconut oil on my counter. But thankfully Kopari’s new individualized serving packets makes that a breeze!! I don’t have to wait for the oil to liquify, go to the kitchen to get spoon or worry about keeping a large jar of oil in my bathroom.

Plus the Kopari flavors taste so much better than your typical coconut oil. We highly recommend trying out the 14 day trial pack!! Make sure to use code DOULBETAKE15 to get 15% off too.

Step 3: Change Our Deodorant

Now for another major area where we are cleaning up our ingredients: deodorant! For years we have used the standard Dove or Secret deodorants but was always hesitant knowing they are full of aluminum. Last year after hearing about all the rave reviews about Kopari deodorant we decided to finally switch to a safer option. Lindsay and I are so glad that we did!!!

Kopari’s famous aluminum-free deodorant glides on clear and isn’t sticky. It’s 100% plant based active works with your body’s natural functions to aid in odor reduction. Also, its unique blend of coconut water, coconut oil, and sage oil conditions and soothes even the most sensitive underarms.

You will be surprised how well it works!! It doesn’t have baking soda in it either, which is an ingredient that can be irritating to some people’s skin. Additionally, it is free of parabens, silicones and phtahalates!!! It also lasts a long time and is affordably priced as well. Make sure to use our special promo code DOUBLETAKE15 too to get 15% off your entire order too!

Step 4: Change Body Care To Coconut Cleansers & More


Coconut Shower Oil

Last but not least, Kopari’s shower oil is another winner in our book. Massage it onto wet skin for a thorough clean that is still very conditioning. You are left with a delicate coconut scent and perfectly hydrated skin. It’s a must for the cold winter months for sure! It’s also a great way to get our flaky legs in shape before getting a spray tan. 😉

Coconut Rose Toner 

This alcohol-free toner uses the natural astringent Witch Hazel to ward off blemishes and tighten pores. Refreshing rose and lavender extracts help fight off acne causing bacteria, reduce redness, and calm skin. It also works to restore skin’s natural pH balance. Lastly it revitalizes and restores the skin with this antioxidant-rich toner that helps to reduce the appearance of pores, even skin tone, and draw out impurities leaving skin hydrated and healthy. It smells so good too!

Coconut Face Cream

This rich cream is full of antioxidants and fatty acids that replenish nutrient levels, strengthen your skin’s protective barrier, and deeply hydrates which provides for a more youthful appearance. We are all about that!! It’s formulated with a smart emulsifier that allows the product to change consistencies depending on your specific skin needs, so it deeply hydrates dry spots but won’t clog pores in more oily ones, like your t-zone.

In case you need more reasons to try this face cream, it also locks in moisture, soothes inflammation, protects skin from environmental stressors, helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and promotes collagen production. This under $40 product pretty much does it all!

Coconut Cleansing Oil

Kopari’s antioxidant rich coconut oil based cleanser dissolves impurities, removes makeup and hydrates skin without stripping skin of its natural moisture. It is very gentle and is a soap-free cleanser that leaves skin feeling hydrated, balanced and fresh without any oily residue. Simply add water to a pump of this oil and the lightweight formula transforms into a milky emulsion. The pump style bottle is very convenient as well.

    I would not have know your guys suffer from hypothyroidism. Your hair always looks so shiny and bouncy. That said I’m totally curious about these Kopari products. I just started using a charcoal toothpaste and I’m not loving it. Will have to try this one. And bonus that their packaging is so pretty!
