I used this for makeup removal.

It's better than the grocery store coconut oil that I've used in the past in the sense that it's smoother and, as another review pointed out, may not seem to cling to the skin as much.

BUT I used up the WHOLE jar (just using it for makeup removal) in about a WEEK AND HALF. That is to say, it's a very small jar. I used the same amount I would have used had it been any other coconut oil.

Is it worth? Absolutely not.
Is it overpriced? Absolutely.
Do I prefer it to grocery store coconut oil? Yes for 2 reasons: 1) packaging is nicer - a superficial reason. And I prefer the texture to regular coconut oil.
Would I repurchase? I'm on the fence about this. I definitely would not repurchase this every week and a half as per the rate of my usage.

If you're expecting this to be some kind of magical skin-fixing coconut oil, it absolutely is NOT. No noticeable change in my skin.

I did try this as a body moisturizer and it soothed a wound I had better than regular moisturizer.

For the love of god, please do not waste your money on this.

Ingredients "100% pure, raw, organic coconut oil"

You can find the same product in tubs off of amazon for waaaaay cheaper. You are paying $25 for 2.5oz of COCONUT OIL. You can buy a litre of this off of amazon or an organic grocery store for like $30. Attaching pure or raw to an ingredients list does not make it better.

Sadly not a huge fan. Don't get me wrong, I like coconut oil and I love RMS Beauty. I tri bad this just to try it really, I had some extra money and thought "why not".
It really isn't any different than any other higher quality raw coconut oil you can purchase at the health food store- for a lot less money. I notice no difference in smell, consistency, quality, or performance versus say, Dr. Bronners coconut oil which I've used for some time. For the money, just not worth it.

I had been using this for like a week. This is the only rms product that I'm not really happy about. Paying $18 for a coconut oil, I expected this product would give me more than any coconut oils. However, it just does the exact same work as any organic coconut oil in the market ( not better ). And I hate the package! I think it's kind of stupid. It made me so hard to use it ( every time after I used it, just coconut oil all over the bottle and it's difficult to get rid of it). It was super annoying so I stop using it. I won't repurchase this

i'm of 2 minds about this product. on the one hand, i've loved it every time i used it at a store before purchasing my own jar. the consistency was good and it did a good job taking my eye makeup off. the problem is the jar i have at home. it just doesn't stay in the right form in NY in the summer. my apartment is moderately conditioned throughout the day, but it was a straight up oil when i kept the jar in my bathroom. i tried leaving it in the fridge and it became TOO solid and hard. i couldn't get any product with my pad and ended up having to let it "defrost"/soften for about an hour. now i leave it in my bedroom and it's in a gloopy half liquid, half solid state. i'm sure i've been forced to use way more product than necessary by dabbing my pad into the jar. so i guess in the end it still does work, but i don't recommend it during the summer months and can see that it would be impossible to travel with as well. i suppose it can be my eye makeup remover for the colder months.

I bought this after I didn't have much luck with raw virgin coconut oil. I realized it was a gamble, but based on the positive reviews, I decided to try it. Count me among the fans. It smells delicious (unlike the raw version that I had, which smelled terrible), and it is so versatile, especially in the cold winter months (today, it is 4 degrees in Maryland). I use it on my cheeks and neck for added moisture at night, on my earlobes, on my cuticles, on my feet, pretty much anywhere I need added moisture.

I am in two minds about this product. I have very sensitive skin and try to always go for more natural options in my skin care. Through trial and error I found out that natural doesn't always mean better for your skin. Although I'm pretty convinced from my reading and looking into these things that from the perspective of health whatever we put on our skin gets absorbed and some chemicals may cause serious issues, I'm still doubtful about the efficacy of natural skin care, especially plant oils. I have tried many plant oils such as jojoba, olive oil, grapeseed oil, pumpkin seed oil, camellia oil, castor oil, almond oil, rice bran oil, rosehip seed oil...You get the idea! Some worked to a degree, some caused dermatitis-like symptoms, some I was very allergic to. I have tried different brands of edible coconut oil on my skin before, like Viridian, Tiana, Biona, ktc and I have also tried a fractionated coconut oil. It's fair to say that I had inconsistent results. Coconut oil, whatever the brand, does not cause a severe reaction for me although if I massage my skin too hard with it, it may irritate a little. I find that in the long run it dries my skin a little. I got rms oil due to the good reviews on the net and some on MUA. Having used different brands of coconut oil, I think it is different than the health food grade coconut oil, however good quality they may be. Rms is almost deodorised, it has a slight smell besides the usual coconut smell. In terms of make up/sunscreen removal performance it is slightly better than other coconut oils and other products I have used although you have to use quite a bit of it to take off something like a zinc oxide-based sunscreen. I don't use foundation so I can not vouch for that but it is pretty good at removing my occasional heavy eye make up. It is better to follow the eye make up removal with pure rose water though as it may cause puffy eyes. The jar is leaky, the price is outrageous in my opinion and I don't think it would last as long as a cleansing balm. Travelling with it is very hard as it liquifies quickly. Having said all that I still may consider a repurchase as it performs well on some levels and usually doesn't irritate me. If you want to try it, I suggest you buy the smaller jar.

I like this for removing makeup and also for moisturizing the eye area. The formulation is very smooth, unlike some other brands you can find in the grocery store. The packaging is okay, but could be improved by making it glass and leak-proof. I will continue to repurchase.

This smells wonderful and feels very soothing on my skin. It also takes off makeup very well. It leaves my skin glowing beautifully but then so does oil cleansing with natural home stocked oils. However, I had the same problem as I do with natural oil cleansing - it gave me one of the worst break outs I've had recently. Would not advise using this without following up with a foaming cleanser. I now use this on my hair. I'm not thrilled with dipping my hands into the jar either and since I live in a hot country the jar was all oily on the outside when it arrived.

I much prefer DHC Cleansing oil which has the added advantage of turning white when you wet it which gives me a lot of satisfaction as I know if I have left out rinsing any spots. I can also use it without double cleansing. I also like the Josie Maran cleansing oil which also seems to work without double cleansing. In fact, my skin could use moisturising after using it.

This makes a great make up remover. I live in the tropics and when it arrived, of course the tub had melted into oil but I just dip my fingers in the oil, swipe over my face, give my face a good massage to melt off the makeup and then wipe over with a warm towel several times. My face is left feeling baby soft, so clean and smooth and clear, with even waterproof and eye makeup gone in one fell swoop.

If you fear that this method of cleansing will leave your face oily and grimy still, do like I do, and do a second cleanse with a light non-foaming face cleanser/face wash. I use the Alpha H balancing cleanser or Ren evercalm cleanser for this step and I love it how my face feels afterwards.

What I especially like about the coconut cream is the lovely coconutty smell that is all natural; no synethetics, chemicals or artificial fragrance here for sure. Also, you can apply it over your eyes to remove eye makeup and it doesn't sting one bit.

Certainly, if you compare the price of this to coconut oil from the supermarket, then you will find this expensive but really, ask yourself, do you want to put cooking oil on your precious visage? It may work for some people, but I think if you used cooking oil and used the RMS coconut cream, you will see a definite difference. This product is so much more refined, so gentle and you feel nothing but goodness when you use it. There's none of that heaviness or oiliness you get from supermarket coconut oil (I have tried both). For me, that it worth paying a higher price than what I would get at the supermart. Further, I don't think this is expensive at all if you compare the price to other makeup removers of roughly the same ilk, for example, Clinique's Take the Day Off cleansing balm, or for those in the UK/Europe, Emma Hardie's. I say the performance of this is equal, if not superior, to these others.

This will always be in my cleansing arsenal, in rotation with Emma Hardie.
