If you have perpetually dry skin or are just in need of some mega-hydrators to nourish flaky limbs and lackluster hair in winter, you might resort to an internet deep dive hunt for products that can help. But how to narrow down and pick a moisturizer that works without making you feel oily, is fairly cheap, and has shining customer reviews? Well, when that product also gets a stamp of approval from a celebrity, like a Kardashian, it can make the choice to "add to cart" a little simpler.

Case in point: Kourtney Kardashian's site Poosh shared a story called "How to Look Good Naked," which highlights products for smoother and more radiant-looking skin. The post may not be written by Kardashian specifically, however, it does call out her product recs, since "feeling prime sans clothes starts with healthy skin," according to the article.

The post is divided into four categories—six exfoliating scrubs, six body creams, six tools to increase hydration (i.e. drinking water), and six candles—and while many of the products are on the pricier side (like a $275 jar of La Mer The Body Creme), there was one affordable standout pick.

Enter: Kopari Organic Coconut Melt (Buy It, $28, amazon.com and sephora.com), a multitasking, 100 percent organic coconut oil that deeply hydrates skin and hair, leaving you with a gorgeous head-to-toe glow. Not only is it hypoallergenic—and safe for all skin types, including sensitive and eczema-prone—but it's also packed with fatty acids to lock in moisture and lauric acid to soothe skin and minimize redness and inflammation.

And Kardashian isn't the only A-lister who swears by Kopari's Coconut Melt. Celebrity hairstylist and founder of best-selling haircare line Ouai, Jen Atkins—whose hands are responsible for the tresses of Kendall Jenner, Hailey Bieber, and Bella Hadid—has also named the cream as one of her favorites. "I am obsessed with Kopari," says Atkins on an episode of Beauty Stash for Harper's Bazaar. "Coconut melt is so yummy if you haven't tried it. Love it."

What's more, even more celebrities have credited the coconut-infused brand Kopari as a must-have in their beauty arsenals. In a press release, Olivia Culpo revealed that she never travels without Kopari Coconut Lip Glossy (Buy It, $13, amazon.com), and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley uses Kopari Coconut Balm (Buy It, $30, amazon.com) to help remove stubborn makeup and waterproof mascara, according to her beauty website, Rose Inc.

If the celeb-loved Kopari Organic Coconut Melt feels a little steep at $28 in comparison to drugstore alternatives, keep in mind that it truly is a multitasking hero product. You can lather it on your entire body, and also apply it to scars, your baby bump, cracked cuticles, your under-eye area, as a deep conditioning hair mask, or as a makeup remover—the options are seriously endless. Plus, a little goes a long way, so the tub will really last you. (Related: Best Body Lotion for Your Skin)
