Between Kylie Cosmetics and Kylie Skin, Kylie Jenner has the beauty industry in the palm of her well-manicured hand. The entrepreneur’s latest venture into skincare has been nothing short of epic, and to cap it off, a summer body collection has just dropped – complete with private jet and a tropical vacay to celebrate.
To add a little background, Jenner posted to Instagram a few days ago the impending release of Kylie Body, a product range designed for summer skin. It includes a coconut-scented granular body exfoliant, an SPF 30 sunscreen oil, and a coconut body lotion to round it out. The launch is slated for July 22, at the same time as a restock of her sell-out facial skincare.
True to form, Jenner is hosting the mother of all press trips to mark the occasion, complete with a Kylie Skin-branded private jet, branded tracksuits, and a (presumably) all expenses paid trip to Turks and Caicos with all of her best pals – daughter Stormi Webster included.
There’s Kylie Skin coconuts, silk robes, mini burgers and bikinis involved, all in various shades of pale pink (the brand’s signature colour). While it seems a little excessive, it’s no surprise coming from the world’s youngest self-made billionaire, given she threw an actual festival for her daughter’s first birthday, and is richer than facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. Girl sure knows how to host a party.
Considering the skin on Jenner’s body is the main marketing material, it makes perfect sense that one of her outfits on the trip was simply a swooping straw hat and a zingy lemon pedicure. Afterwards, Jenner added clothes, opting for baby blue Jacquemus – the perfect vacation designer if there ever was one.
Given that coconut is Jenner’s summer flavour du jour, we’ve rounded up a handful of our favourite fruity body picks. Winter or not, there’s never a bad time to smell like a tropical island. Plus, our ticket to paradise seemingly got lost in the mail, so consider these the next best thing.
Cushiony and soft, this occlusive balm contains oils to really nourish dry lips and prevent flaking. It also smells like a frothy, delicious Pina Colada.

For skin as buff as Jenner’s, a grainy scrub can help (below the neck, that is). It contains coconut oil and crushed coconut shells, so will leave skin feeling softer and more radiant. It’s a sweet coco-nutty scent, as opposed to fruity.
