- The Best of Fruity Beauty
19 Fruit-Based Beauty Products You Need to Try
Fruity beauty is taking over and we are here for it.
We have no shame in admitting that we’ve always been a little partial to a fruit-infused beauty product – those sour grape, watermelon and cherry-flavoured lip smackers were a total vibe back in the day. So, when we noticed many of our favourite beauty brands releasing fruit-based products, you can bet your bottom-dollar that we were first in line to try them out.
Now, fruit-based beauty has come a long way since the lip balm era. As well as looking, smelling and tasting good (although we advise you don’t actually eat them), modern-day formulas are packed with tonnes of antioxidants and beautifying benefits.
Keep scrolling to discover all of the fruit-based skincare, haircare, makeup and body products that you need to try.
A serious contender for your skin care routine, especially if you have dry, sensitive and flaky skin. The lightweight, milky face scrub is bursting with the same pineapple and papaya enzymes found in the original Yo Glow for a bright, clarified, radiant finish. The only difference is this limited-edition formula boasts a delicious scent of tropical fruits that'll transport you to a paradise island.
If there is one fruit-based beauty product to try, it’s this one. Since launching, The Watermelon Glow range by Glow Recipe has not only been a constant sell-out but it’s bagged multiple awards. Real watermelon extract is used to fight free radicals and supply antioxidant benefits, whilst hyaluronic acid injects hydration and radiance into skin.
Pineapple is renowned for its ability to brighten even the dullest of complexions, and this cleansing mask Is bursting with the stuff. Pineapple and papaya fruit are blended together to help exfoliate and resurface uneven skin tone. The result? A soft, smoother, more radiant complexion.
Buff your body to perfection with this scrub from Mario Badescu. Mixing raspberry with papaya extract, this formula erases dull, dry skin cells so that you can reveal a clean, clear and glowing complexion.
The pineapple and papaya duo make an appearance once more, this time featuring in ELEMIS's much-loved Enzyme Peel. This gentle face peel works overtime to remove dead skin cells and other debris that dull your complexion so that you can repair, smooth and brighten skin. The best part? It's not strictly limited to the face - you can use it on elbows, knees, heels and other rough areas for head-to-toe radiance.
We couldn’t not include a lip balm somewhere in this haul. Putting a grown-up spin on our much-loved lip smackers, Fenty Beauty present a lip balm that keeps your pout soft, all day long. The clear formula is enriched with mango butter and shea butter in order to effectively nourish and prep parched pouts. Oh, and it offers a lip-smackingly good peach-vanilla flavour!
Milk Makeup have practically packed your five a day into this serum stick. Powered by watermelon extract, the nourishing formula delivers an instant hit of hydration. Prickly pear also provides a moisture boost whilst garden cress lightens dark spots and discolouration.
Treat your bod to the benefits of a pomegranate body wash. Weleda mixes pomegranate, sandalwood and neroli to create a body wash that refreshes, invigorates and pampers skin. The sharp, fruity fragrance uplifts your mood, stimulates senses and leaves you ready to tackle the day.
Lumene combine exfoliating berry and fruit acids with hyaluronic acid, Nordic birch sap, vitamin C, pure arctic spring water and arctic cloudberry to create a lotion that leaves skin visibly clarified, refined and prepped for the next steps of your skincare routine. Getting your glow on has never been easier!
Wave bye-bye to harsh cleansers that strip your skin as Indeed Labs serve up a melting cleansing balm that effortlessly dissolves makeup, dirt and oils. Watermelon and help seed oil are fused with essential vitamins and antioxidants in order to deeply condition skin, leaving it clean and comfortable as well as bright and glowing.
Who said avocado was only good on toast? This fan-favourite from Kiehl’s is powered by avocado to create a nutrient-rich formula that hydrates and protects the delicate under-eye area.
PIXI supply a fruit-packed pick-me-up that tired skin will love. The boosting treatment toner mist combines an orange blossom base with skin-loving citrus fruit extracts for a revitalising spritz. Use it to awaken, strengthen, protect and tone skin before makeup, after makeup or throughout the day.
Yup, cucumber is botanically a fruit, which we love as that means we can introduce you to these bad boys. The Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Hydra Gel Eye Masks are all you need if you’ve had one too many late nights. Just give them 15 minutes to revive and revitalise a fatigued under-eye area.
Think of this fruit-inspired conditioner as an epic antioxidant smoothie for your hair. The superfruit complex blends the likes of raspberry, marula, coconut, guava and acai with biotin to strengthen, renew and improve overall hair health.
We just can’t get enough of the avocado (we’re millennials, it’s in our genes). But this night cream really is worth your attention. It utilises all of the nutrients and goodness found in avocados and injects them into skin so you can rock a flawless canvas, night and day.
Burt’s Bees are experts when it comes to natural ingredients, so it comes as no surprise that they know what fruits to use in skin care and when. These grapefruit-infused wipes give your skin a gentle cleanse without causing dryness or irritation.
