Malie carries a range of hair, body, and skincare products that draw on island inspiration. Whether the waves, flowers or something else captivates your imagination, this store will have the perfect aromatic self-care product.

The shampoos and conditioners at Malie come in two primary scents of Koke (green tea and avocado) and Mango Nectar. These are also available as beauty oils, but those also come in Coconut Vanilla, Plumeria, and Hibiscus scents.

The body care solutions at Malie come in a similar variety of aromas, with Koke, Plumeria, and Mango Nectar all prominent in various products. Hand soaps, body creams, body washes, beauty oils, body polishes, and cream soaps will have every pour perfectly exfoliated and hydrated.

Skincare items complement these other products with illuminating serums, firming creams, eye creams, clay masks, and moisturizers. When combined with the other topical treatments,  the right mixture of items can leave your skin fully refreshed.

These aren’t discount hair, body, or skincare products, and their prices aren’t the cheapest on the island. For a personal splurge or quality gift, though, the $30 to $50 products are worth getting. Samples can be tried in-store at Malie to make sure you like what you’re purchasing, and smaller bottles of some products are available at lower prices.

The island climate can be perfect for your hair, body, and skin while you’re on the islands. Bring home a few items from Malie, and you can have similar rejuvenation at home.

A few of our favorite products at Malie include:

Mango Nectar Shampoo & Conditioner
Give your hair a treat with the Mango Nectar Shampoo and Conditioner at Malie. You’ll love how the product leaves your hair feeling healthy and lush, and you’ll have a subtle scent of mango flowers all day long.

Plumeria Body Wash
Wash your body right with any of the high-quality body washes that feature organic aloe, awapuhi ginger and more vitamins than you can remember. The tropical floral scent of plumeria is especially popular, but you can match the Mango Nectar Shampoo or go with a classic coconut vanilla scent.

Coffee Fruit Mask
A face mask exclusively composed of Kona coffee fruit extract, this is how Hawaiians do facials. The coffee cherry is separated from the bean (pit) that it surrounds, and then its beneficial juice is extracted. The resulting extract has a higher concentration of antioxidants than almost any other fruit-derived product.

Island Ambiance Mist
One of Malie’s few deviations from body care, the Island Ambiance Mist is for spritzing linen rather than skin. Spray a little on your pillow at night to remind you of vacation, or save it for a subtle luxury when others come to visit. The mist is available in all of the scents that body washes come in.

Kokee Gift Set
Don’t know which product to get? The Kokee Gift Set includes a sampling of shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and body cream, all in the store’s well-loved tropical Kokee flower scent. It’s the perfect simpler for yourself or a great gift for someone who themselves can’t come for a vacation on the island.

Insider Tip:
Love a particular scent? Get an Eco-Refill of your favorite shampoo, conditioner, hand soap, or body cream. You’ll save on a per-ounce basis, and the gallon jugs meet the store’s minimum for free shipping. Have them ship it home ahead of you, so you won’t have to worry about adding weight to your luggage.
