normally because of my oily skin I swear away all oils from my skin, but this is an awesome light oil that helps my complexion. I use it in the evening as a supplement to my Bare Escentuals moisturizer and I wake up with a glowing face. It has only been a week, but no breakouts so far. I also combine the organic Coconut oil with baking soda and use the paste as a cheap and effective facial scrub in conjunction with my clarisonic. I also use it as a hair conditioner and hair treatment on the cheap. who knew that this product could be as effective as a beauty product as it is a cooking product. This product is a definite clutter buster! Less priducts to clutter my closet with, LOL!
I love ev coconut oil!!! I use it to moisture my scalp my skin my face everything!!!! Its a great hot oil treatment for dry ends and a great moisturizer to apply after sitting in the sun it helps a tan last for days and makes skin so soft and smooth plus it smells awesome
Coconut oil is my HG skin moisturizer! After having very dry, scaly and flaky skin for years and going through so many different lotions that claim to heal and soothe, I picked up a jar in the cooking oil section of wal mart and tried my luck. I never looked back. It is quite greasy if you use too much, and my sheets suffered for it. My thing is to dig a small hunk out while its solid and let the heat of my hand melt, and then apply after my shower. Unlike lotions there's no tackiness or stickiness, and my skin stays soft even in winter. Its good for your hair and I even used it to take off my make up with no breakouts- ah-mazing! Best thing is, its scentless..hm, maybe a small hint of nuttiness but nothing overpowering, at all. Most of all, its pretty much shut down my flaky, dry skin; I couldn't be happier and more pleased with the stuff and at under $8 a jar, its a steal and will last you, since a little bit goes a long way.
I use this for a moisturizer for my body and it has helped so much with my extremely dry alligator skin :) I tried using it as a facial moisturizer but it dried out my face...sad! I also love using coconut oil as a carrier for essential oils :)
This stuff has saved my hair and skin. I use it as a night time moisturiser for my oily skin, which is also very sensitive. Your skin feels a little greasy straight after application but by morning I am not oily and my skin feels softer and glows like it never has. It's not too heavy, doesn't break me out, and is super cheap! Also use it as a hair mask, an keeps my super dry ends in check :)
Protip: use a cotton round to scoop out enough solid coconut oil to apply, then use the other side of the round to wipe off any excess. That way you don't introduce bacteria to the bottle! (I like to use the rounds that have an abrasive side and a soft side, and use the abrasive side for scooping.)
This is my go-to for moisturizing, everything from my hair to my feet, INCLUDING my eyes. It's also a great make-up remover. Be sure to buy organic because non-organic can have traces of solvents. I paid $8 for 500 grams, in glass, and in 3 months have used about a dollar's worth. Plus it's rich in vitamin E!
Coconut Oil and Avocado Oil are my HG beauty oils. I've tried others in the past but always, ALWAYS come back to these two. I don't even bother with trying other oils anymore. I always get the unrefined oil that turns solid in cooler temperatures and it makes both my skin and hair incredibly soft and supple and lightly fragrant without being greasy at all. I can't live without either during the winter months and it's cheap to boot. It's great for removing makeup and since I use it in a mixture of neem and avocado as a hot oil/pre poo treatment, I don't have dandruff anymore and my psoriasis has calmed down considerably. Go get some, you won't be disappointed.
Coconut oil saved my face! I have dry to combination skin and coconut oil has helped so much! I found that coconut oil has helped with acne surprisingly!?! since i've been using it (8 months) my usual monthly spots have greatly reduced I hardly get any spots now and it keeps my under eye area really hydrated!
I LOVE coconut oil for my face, hair and body!
My skin tone has improved as well possibly due to the fact that coconut oil keeps my face well hydrated. I wouldn't recommend it for people with oily skin or really bad acne, I don't use it on my forehead or nose area to avoid any extra oiliness but I LOVE it for the rest of my face I use it before moisturiser especially before I go to sleep.
I really think that coconut oil is fantastic for your hair but I had a huge problem with this on my skin and am trying to figure out why this happened. I put some of the coconut oil on my face and after a few minutes it started burning and I rinsed it off immediately. I didn't get it off fast enough apparently since my skin was left as one massive, red and itchy rash. I eat coconut all the time and drink coconut water daily so I know I'm not allergic to it. If anyone else has had a similar reaction let me know! I recommend using this in your hair but keep it far away from your skin- it took my face a month and a half to recover.
A friend from India introduced me to coconut oil for my long, thick, curly hair a few years ago. It was wonderful; I kept the bottle in my shower and poured some of the melted product in my palms and worked it into my hair before toweling off. I would end up with conditioned and luxurious ringlets. I have always been prone to breakouts, and only about a year ago realized that it was this product in my hair making contact with my face that was contributing to them. I ceased using this in my hair, and saw an almost immediate reduction in the number of blemishes I experienced. I have since used on and off, with the same results. Unfortunately, while this is gold for hair, you have to keep it clear away from your face if you don't want any unsightly side effects (for those who are blemish prone, anyway). If you don't have problem skin, try it. If you do, beware. If you want to try and juggle the two, just keep your hair away from your face. I have since replaced this with jojoba for my hair, as it does not cause breakouts for me and keeps curls and skin moisturized.
