Kopari Friends & Family Sale

Building a quality skin care routine takes time, patience, and, much to our dismay, a chunk of change. Whether you’re hunting down ingredients for skin longevity or seeking a solution for congested pores, finding clean, effective products on a budget can be a struggle. But thanks to Kopari’s Friends & Family sale, you have a chance to snag the brand’s entire lineup of skin, hair, and body products for 20% off.

Along with savings on Kopari’s best-selling coconut oil—which mindbodygreen previously named one of the best coconut oils for skin—the sitewide markdowns extend to the beauty brand’s most recent launch: the Sun Shield Soft Glow Daily Face SPF 30. Dropped just in time for summer, the face sunscreen packs vitamin E to protect from free radicals and incorporates pearlescent minerals for an added glow.  

Of course, there are so many other splurge-worthy items available for less right now, including aluminum-free deodorant, cleansing oil, toner, and eye balm. But there is a downside to so much selection; finding the best deals to shop for less can be an overwhelming process. Rather than sifting through product descriptions, check out our beauty team’s curated shopping list of the items that they’d actually buy from Kopari’s sale

The 6 best products in Kopari’s Friends & Family sale:

Rose Gold Sun Shield Body Glow SPF 45


  • Broad spectrum SPF with UVA & UVP rays
  • Contains moisturizing oils

How to use: Apply every 2 hours

Considerations: Fragrance-freeRecyclable

Size: 5-ounce

Deal: Save $8

“This SPF 45 makes my skin seriously glow. Not only does it include nourishing oils, like hibiscus and macadamia, to moisturize and smooth but it also adds sustainably sourced mica to brighten and even skin tone. Most sunscreens make me look quite chalky (a small price to pay for optimal sun protection, but still), but this is one that doubles as a luminizer. A summer must-have, IMO.” —Jamie Schneider, associate beauty editor 

Niacinamide & caffeine eye bright cream


  • Niacinamide & caffiene blend
  • Targets dark circles & puffiness

How to use: Apply a pea-sized amount after cleansing

Considerations: Fragrance-freeRecyclableDermatologist-tested

Size: 0.5-ounce

Deal: Save $7

“Some eye creams are formulated to brighten dark circles, others reduce puffiness. It’s not often you find one that does both, but this product fits the bill. Niacinamide works to ease those pesky purple-ish half moons under the eyes while caffeine depuffs. Altogether, it’s no surprise the formula has been clinically proven to ease both concerns after just one month of use.” — Hannah Frye, assistant beauty editor

To top it off, pantheonol and coconut milk support the skin barrier and sooth—what more could you ask for in a gentle scrub?” — Frye
