I don't use coconut oil for anything other than cooking! I tried it on my hair...disastrous...on my skin even worse...but as a kitchen staple...I gave it 4 lippies!

This is a serious HG for me ! Let me get straight to the point, I literally use this head to toe. EVCO got rid of my acne and KP ! The KP it took about 2 weeks without a hitch and the acne took about a month. Now, I don't know if this has been mentioned before but my face purged for about 2 weeks ( cystic and all- BE PATIENT ) but now I am golden. For my face I wash with Aveeno Radiant foaming make up remover and a micro fiber cloth, then apply a small amount of EVCO over my entire face and neck while damp. This goes under make up or suncreen or both, I like PTR powder suncreen.For KP, I apply liberally immediately after my shower ( twice a day ) .Just for reference I have taken/used pretty much everything for acne and KP with the exception of accutane, so trust me when I say I am no stranger to prescriptions, peels or high end brands. As you know make up looks like shit if you don't have good skin- period ! This is also great for your hair, I brush it in and massage at night about once every two weeks.As far as brands ( $9 to $16 ) I"ve used Garden of life, Jarrow and Nutiva I think-as long as it's extra virgin, cold pressed and organic, you're good.S.

I find coconut oil (I use the NOW brand) to be an excellent moisturizer. I mainly use it in the shower, taking a small handful and applying it all over under running water. Keeps skin supersoft and unscented, which is what my perfume loving nature is always looking for. To remove makeup, I massage liberally onto dry face and closed eyes, then remove with a dry washcloth, following up by washing face with Dove soap. No problems with breakouts. Just a good all around all natural product with multiple uses. And cheap!

This product s amazing! it has so many uses! I use it as a facial moisturizer (about once a week, i have oily acne-prone skin and it doesn't break me out!) i sometimes use it as a body (hand, feet, legs ect.) moisturizer, granted, it takes a bit longer to sink in but the results are worth it! you can use it as a hair mask, makes your hair shiny and silky. You can use it as a cuticle moisturizer - worked wonders for me! This is a great buy, and even if you end up not liking it at all, just use it for cooking! Or you can pass it on for someone else to try. A while ago, i had a really nasty cold, and i kept blowing my nose and after about a week i had really dry flaky skin around my nose! After doing my regular skin care routine i patted on some coconut oil around their and by the next day, the flaky skin washed right off! This is such a great product to have at hand, even if it isnt an HG product.

I use this as a body mosituriser and as a nighttime hair mask.I warm it up in my hands and run it through the length of my hair (not the roots) and wash it off in the morning- it really tames frizz and makes hair soft and 'swishy'!As an all over body moisturiser (not on face- too greasy) it is great- really makes dry, dull skin glow!It is natural, organic and good for you in anyway you use it, so give it a go!

oh ladies... i'm so disappointed with this! after reading and re-reading review and doing way too many searches on the inet, i determined in my heart that i may finally have found a solution to my hormonal chin breakouts that i am way too old for (37)!! so i went out and paid 12 bucks for a jar of cold-pressed, organic virgin coconut oil. started using it after a couple of awful cystic breakouts. made things far worse. having tried various facial product, i knew that my skins reacts to anything new in a rejection manner and i'd have to live it out for a few weeks until things adjusted. well after 3 or so weeks i could no longer handle going out in public with 3 layers of foundation and feeling like a 13yr old again. so i came back and read the review again. by that time there was someone who posted that she made the mistake of buying virgin instead of extra virgin and that was a bad idea. so i figured that was my problem! went out next day and purchased the extra virgin variety. i would cleanse with my regular cleanser (oxy) and then gently rub a small pea-size amount of oil on my face as a moisturizer. the rest of my face loves it... ecxema gone around nostrils, wrinkles seriously diminishing around eyes. but... chin is going crazy! so i then read about the oil cleansing method and also read an article that said a huge percentage of acne breakouts are cause from "over-cleansing and harsh acne facial cleanser". so i figured that was the problem. stopped using the oxy and used the coconut oil as a cleanser (with the steamy washcloth method). i hoped that by wiping most of the oil off with the hot cloth, there would be less to clog my pores and things would go better. well it's been 2 1/2 weeks of that and i have the largest cysts under my skin now. they look like big lumps or growths on my chin/jaw. it's painful and embarrassing and i've given up on the coconut oil thing. what's really funny is that i don't have hugely oily skin or lots of acne... just hormonal breakouts on the chin area. i don't understand why so many people have great results with this natural product and my skin hates it! i really wanted to have clear, smooth skin!!so i'm now moving on to the neutrogena acne wash in hopes that i'll get my chin back to the occasional small pimple and blackheads that i once hated and now long for! likely it will dry the heck out of the rest of my face but i'd rather deal with scaley than massive pussy cysts.am going to try eating a tsp of the coconut oil/day (seeing as i already have it) and maybe that will keep my skin from drying too much.any advise regarding better usage of the coconut oil would be helpful! if you've experienced negative effects and then figured out how to make it work for you i'd love to hear your methods!!

I had been using extra virgin olive oil as a hair treatment, and I read that coconut oil also works really well, so I wanted to try it. I've used this ONCE and I'm so hooked! I just bought a huge jar from Whole Foods for about $6. After I spread it through my hair, I kept smelling my hands because I LOVE the scent. After a few minutes I sort of went nuts and just put it all over my skin lol. I have never smelled this good. Even if it didn't moisturize as well as it does, I would still use it just for the coconut smell. I don't think I'll wear any perfume anymore. :-)

Reading the reviews here, I felt compelled to write my own. I used to use EV coconut oil as a body moisturizer (read: DO NOT put it on your face, it is far too heavy and will clog your pores. You facial skin is much more sensitive than your body). It's "okay" as a body moisturizer, but it was heavy and I didn't use it for long for that reason. I felt the heaviness would break me out, since I have acne-prone skin. Raw shea butter is much better than this - it's my favourite moisturizer. But if you really want to use an oil, use jojoba or extra virgin oil oil. If you have dry hair, just mash up a ripe avocado and slather it all over your hair and leave in for 15 minutes.
