Review of Unlisted Brand Extra Virgin Coconut Oil by KittySkyfish
Extra virgin coconut oil is a great skin cleanser and makeup remover! I find this works better than rinsable oil-based cleansers like DHC or Shu Uemura for my dry, sensitive skin because this doesn't have surfectants that strip moisture away. Manufactured oil cleansers will break down makeup well, but the added surfectants can't tell the difference between your natural oils versus its own oils, so when it comes time to rinse everything goes down the drain; the bad and the good.
It works similar to cold cream cleansers in that the oil liquifies makeup and sunscreen, while requiring manual removal with a warm washcloth or cotton squares and rinsing. What's nice about coconut oil is that it's thinner in texture than cold cream, so if you wish to wash afterwards you'll find it easier to wash off. And no fragrance, mineral oil, or detergents to linger and irritate. I've been using this since spring and will continue to enjoy clean, soft skin by cleansing with coconut oil.
