This Coconut Oil Body Product Also Perfects the Hair and Face

Pressing question: Would you rather have a ton of beauty products that each do one thing really well or one product that can be used for just about everything—hair, skin, body—but is only so-so?
Minimalists, rejoice—you may not need to choose.

Meet Aussie brand Frank Body. Its new Coconut Body Balm ($25) is pretty amazing in the multitasking department. As the name suggests, it’s kind of intended to be a body product (it’s really, really good on dry, winter skin on the legs and hands), but it does a bang-up job when you use it as a highlighter on your cheekbones or to tame flyaways and frizz.
The secret is the formula. It looks/feels like a less-greasy petroleum jelly; coconut oil, coffee seed oil and jojoba oil make it a lot easier for skin to absorb to glow-worthy perfection. That same trio also gives it a subtle coconut-meets-coffee fragrance—a sort of less-tropical, less-sweet version of your standard coconut concoction.
