This is my HG of body moisturizers. I've used this after I shower for years and it is just amazing-I almost never need to apply lotion or creams during the day. I have fairly dry skin with Keratosis pilaris, so it helps to make my skin softer in those areas. I use it year-round and I've never broken out. I did try to use it on my face but that did break me out, so I I use it only for body. It can seem a little greasy but a little goes a lot way because it will instantly melt on your skin and spreads easily. Also wait a few minutes, then pat yourself dry with a towel before putting on clothes. Coconut oil is also a natural sunscreen. :]

DO NOT USE THIS ON YOUR FACE IF YOU ARE ACNE-PRONE. Coconut oil is one of the most comedogenic natural oils out there, which means it will clog your pores. However, this stuff is great for hair as either a leave-in treatment of apply an hour or more before you shower, and it will prevent protein loss, hair drying from wash and enhance the effects of your conditioner. I've also used it as a moisturizer right after I get out of the shower and it works soooo well. It soaks in right away and completely eliminates my dry winter skin and takes away the itch I get from being really dry.

I like to use this on my hair as an overnight treatment, and sometimes to massage my scalp. I find it really helps if you have dry scalp or dry ends. The smell is delightful and it really works! You can use it on other parts of your body, like elbows/feet, but I would refrain from applying to your face. I will definitely repurchase, and want to incorporate this into some recipes also!

my skin: moderate to severe acne on my chin, clogged pores on my forehead. before i used this had a lot of little pimples and bump all over my chin. i also had a lot of inflamed acne (only on my chin) i had a lot of hope for this product and stuck with it for 3 weeks. all the little bumps and whiteheads i had on my chin came to the surface for the first 2 weeks, which i thought was going to happen. i was SO broken out!!!!!!! so i thought that after the 3 weeks this phase of breaking out would stop and my skin would start healing- it didn't i just kept breaking out all over my face, not just my chin. i didnt even feel like it moisturized my body or my lips very well : (

This was one of those things I'd thought I would try after my jojoba disappointment. I've been using extra virgin coconut oil for over a year now and am glad b/c the stuff works for me. I use it regulary about 3/4 of the year on my face (all seasons but summer). I put a little on at night, then use cetaphil cream over it. Strangely, if I use it alone, it is too drying for my face. In the summer I don't use it b/c it's too greasy. I don't know how it works, but I don't have the problems like I had with jojoba oil. It's cheap enough to try, but since people have report having breakouts be cautious if you notice bad changes. I use it in my shins - moisturizing and seems to help to decrease the ingrown hairs. Also use it occasionally for my hair. It makes it soft and shiny, just a bit messy while it's in. I haven't tried cooking with this.

AMAZING!!I use it for my body right after the shower, over stretch marks, in my hair as a mask, and in my morning smoothies! Soooooo many benefits to this!! You must get the pure, raw, unrefined kind like Nutiva. I buy the huge tub of this stuff. Expensive but so worth it, puts all your other beauty products to shame! My boyfriend loves it too. DO NOT use it on your face though!! Use jojoba oil instead. It's too thick and will cause the sebum to rise to the surface and then cause you to break out. My boyfriend and I both got a few pimples when we tried it on our faces. Amazing for everything else. Yes you can eat it, it helps you lose weight! Don't believe me? Do the reasearch yourself on Google. It's a saturated fat that's extremely good for you since it's plant based. Better than fish oil supplements or biotin! Makes your hair incredibly shiny and healthy(I have hair all the way down to my butt thanks to this stuff!!)

Yes, I would buy this again but I'm not sure I'll need to! I've had my jar for over a year and I've barely put a dent into it. Coconut oil is a fantastic multitasker. My favorite use for it is as a hand moisturizer. There are plenty of okay hand lotions out there that protect you from chapping but in my experience don't really moisturize. Coconut oil is perfect for my hands. I usually swipe them through the ends of my hair after rubbing it in (be careful! it's, you know, oil). You can cook with it as well. It gets a bit messy in the summertime since coconut oil melts at around 75 degrees, but pop it in the fridge and everything should be fine. I haven't tried it on my face because jojoba oil was such a disaster for me and I'm prone to milia, but for those with more tolerant skin I'm sure it would make a nice eye cream.

I love this, this made my skin feel sooooo soft after I used this, without my skin being oily the next day, my skin just felt...healthy :]I love this, and it cost me like $5 at whole foods. the only bad thing is that you have to warm it up before you use.EDIT: This broke me out so much, and it made my skin a little flaky after a while, sometimes I still use it for my cheeks though because it gives them a health glow which i do love.

okay, I've read books on coconut oil, and I've seen the reviews here. I have to say I have seen NONE of the benefits. I used it for a few months on my face - HORRIBLE breakouts. I could feel the zits popping out on my face. I had read in one of the books that it cleans out your pores - it sure didn't do that for me. At first it was okay, I had no more zits than from my previous moisturizer. But after a few months, wow. I didn't realize it was the coconut oil at first and thought it was peri-menopause. But finally I had SO many zits, and each one had a hard sort of PIECE in it that I actually had to pry out with a pin or it never went away. And PAINFUL- OMG. So I went online and read that in fact coconut oil is extremely clogging - it was in the most comedogenic category. I switched to a jojoba oil/aloe vera moisturizer (Desert Essence) and have not had one zit since. Not one. I'm totally annoyed that I suffered for months with zits that I thought were caused by peri-menopause but that were actually caused by top quality extra-virgin coconut oil. Never again. (P.S. I also never noticed any benefits from eating it either.) Two thumbs down on coconut oil. (I never found it particularly moisturizing, either.)
