- The Best of Fruity Beauty
20 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 skin care, hair care, makeup and body products that you need to try.
