I'm not one of these make-your-own-deodorant, kale-chips-all-day coconut oil fanatics. But I am pleasantly surprised by how coconut oil has worked for my face/skin since I started using it one month ago.I have sensitive, dry skin and suffer from frequent breakouts on my chin, starting in my early twenties (several years ago now, as I just turned 30). I eliminated any products with cetyl alcohol from my routine as I believe this ingredient can provoke acne for me. For the past two-ish years, my face washing routine was Cetaphil antibacterial cleansing bar, acnevir treatment, and eltaMD moisturizer. This routine worked pretty well for me, not eliminating my breakouts but at least lessening their severity and frequency.About two months ago, my breakouts began flaring up again with some regularity and I feared my skin had grown used to the acnevir and it was no longer as effective as it once had been. Exactly month ago, a friend suggested to me to "cleanse" with coconut oil as she had been experiencing very good results with it. I bought a jar at Trader Joe's for $6 and began that same night. Every night now, I rub about a 1/2 tablespoon amount all over my face in circles for about 10 seconds, including over my eyes, and then put a warm washcloth over my face for 30 seconds. Then I wipe the oil away gently, and repeat the process once more. (This particular method I found on a website called coconut oil and kettle bells.) I do not use or need a makeup remover first. I do not use any treatments, toners, cleansers or lotions before or after the coconut oil "cleansing." Coconut oil is the only thing I use on my face anymore (besides makeup). I do the coconut cleansing every night and in the morning I just rinse my face with water.At first, my skin was a little dry, but now it seems to have adjusted and I do not experience any tightness or flakiness. While my breakouts have not subsided completely, I find that they do occur less frequently and with far less severity. If I do get a blemish, it is gone in 1-2 days, 3 max. Whereas with my prior routine they could last up to and over a week. Blemishes I have experienced since I started using coconut oil have been small and dried out/healed very quickly. I was told you could put a little extra coconut oil on them overnight to help them heal faster after wiping the rest off of your face. While putting oil on a blemish seems counterintuitive, I think it actually does help.The coconut oil doesn't sting or irritate my eyes or skin and has a pleasant, subtle scent. It is strange to me to only use one product, let alone one from the pantry, on my face and have it be working out so well, but I'm happy that it has been, so far. I will continue to use coconut oil if the results continue as they have. Coconut oil washing has saved me money and helped my skin improve.Sorry for the super long review, but I wanted to provide as much info as I could for others who are curious/considering.One more thing: would not advise using coconut oil to clean your makeup brushes. I usually use whatever I'm using to clean my face on my brushes too. However, because coconut oil is usually a "solid" it is difficult to completely remove and wash off from brushes, and with the coconut oil still on them, they will not work nearly as well (kills fluffiness/buffing/softness).

Brilliant for basically EVERYTHING, as everyone testifies!I discovered it for my psoriasis - it works better and faster than anything the doc prescribed. If you suffer from eczema or psoriasis you should coconut oil.I'm about to try it as a deodorant - I'll report back.

This is THE BEST eye makeup remover EVER!!!!! You just take a tea spoon and warm it up slightly in between your fingers then straight on to eye area and gently massage round then take a damp cotton pad and hey presto gone!! quickly & easily no stinging natural product that moisturises as you cleanse what more could you want!! Not to mention the 1000 other benefits of using this incredible oil I would list them but I'm pretty sure everyone knows by now lol

I use it for everything. Moisturizer, hair mask, body lotion, etc etc. it smells great, is cheap and doesn't make me break out. Amazing! My skin is much healthier looking since I started using it as a facial moisturizer.

I could go on and on....I love this as a daily body moisturizer, and as an added bonus, it's made my fingernails stronger and they no longer peel! It's great as a makeup remover, including stubborn eye makeup and staining lipstick (which is about all I wear). I use it after I've been in the sun. I run a little through my hair before bed occasionally when I know I'm washing it the next morning and it makes my hair super soft and shiny. I cook with it (it's fantastic to make stovetop popcorn). I've used it to soothe my underarm area after shaving. Definitely worth the money to buy good quality oil. Highly recommend!

Ahhhh I don't have enough to say about coconut oil!! I could go on all day!But alas today I shall just mention using it as a hair mask, which is my favourite way to use it. This is literally the BEST. HAIRMASK. EVER!!!!! I don't say this lightly, I prefer this to the kinglsey elasticizer by a mile. Even if I leave this on for like 4 hours when I wash my hair its so soft and refreshed and just looks heavenly, I apply this to my scalp as well and I swear it speeds up hair growth AND prevents my scalp from being itchy and dry by locking in moisture.This is a MUST HAVE beauty item ladies, there are so many uses for it!!!

I like coconut oil because it is so versatile and you can use it for almost any problem. I use it to remove makeup, sometimes moisturize my face, mix with a powdered pigment to create cream makeup, apply to my cuticles, use as a body moisturizer, etc. I think the big thing to pay attention to here is where the coconuts come from. Many coconut oils, despite their claims, are heat processed. Extra virgin is insufficient; cold-pressed and organic would be the best indicators of quality. The price can range quite a bit depending on these qualifications, so know that you get what you pay for.

This is just great for hair, no matter what your hair type-obviously the usage should vary depending on the latter. It's been scientifically proven to penetrate hair and strengthening it from within, so it really should be a staple for anyone with damaged hair. Hair damage doesn't only come from chemical treatments like coloring or perming, but also from the everyday washing, combing, blowdrying and heat styling. If you wanted to avoid damaging your hair completely, you'd have to almost not wash and comb your hair, which in our society is a big no-no (and personally I find the oily-scalped frizzy-ends look a bit unappealing, not to mention the smell). Coconut oil works best as a leave-in treatment pre-shampooing or used like a hair serum after shampoo, but the problem is some other traditional hair conditioning products MIGHT interfere with its absorption so it's ideal to use it on freshly washed, non-conditioned hair. I personally use it more frequently as a leave-in after shampoo and conditioning but I can still see the benefits from using it often. I rarely use it after only using clarifying shampoo because my hair has been extremely damaged in the last few years and it would be a pain to dry my frizzy messy hair. It definitely helps repair my hair (ever so slightly since once damaged, a hair strand can never go back to its original state), especially if I use a lot and leave it in for 12h+.

I use this for EVERYTHING! It works great on taming my curly hair after washing and as a mask for before washing. I also use to remove eye make-up! It works with even stubborn mascaras, whilst keeping lashes nourished. Apparently works well for lash growth. I also use on my baby bump to keep stretch marks at bay and so far it has done a good job, 8 months in!

I use it on my face at night after i wash with black soap. It's amazing but one should use a TINY amount. I also used it 3-4 times to restore my poor, over-processed hair and it worked great. I also love cooking with it, especially fish ;)
