Coconut Oil For Beauty

For the past few years, I’ve seen celebrities and magazines boast about the benefits of coconut oil. Recently I caved in and decided to give Vita Coco’s one a try.

Great for beauty as well as cooking, this can be used on the face, body and hair to hydrate and moisturise. For only £5.99 for this large jar, it’s quite the bargain for a multi-use product.

Upon opening the coconut oil, I was firstly hit by it’s gorgeous scent. Whilst most face and body products are full of unnatural chemicals that don’t smell too pleasant, this product is organic and has a fresh coconut scent.

The second thing I noticed is how solid the oil appears in the jar. However, upon scooping out a small amount of product, it quickly turns into a liquid.

I’ve been using the coconut oil as a nightly moisturiser and it works really well for my combination skin. It’s not too greasy and I’ve suffered no break outs, if anything my skin has cleared up since I began using this!

As it’s an oil formula, it does take a bit more massaging into the skin than a regular moisturiser, which I guess should be expected.

My only complaint with the coconut oil is, I don’t feel this hydrates my dry patches quite as well as a regular night cream, but it has improved the appearance of my skin overall. My skin is clearer, glowing and feels more balanced.

I would definitely recommend giving coconut oil a try. For under £6 a jar it’s a great product for cooking and to add to your beauty collection.

  1. Great review! I’ve been loving coconut oil lately too. It’s really soothing but you’re right – it doesn’t really do much for really dry patches except cool them off. Have you tried rubbing a little into the ends of your hair and leaving it in until you shower the next morning? I’ve been loving it as a sort of mask for dry ends.

  2. Coconut oil is AMAZING, one of the best things for removing makeup as well. if you’re looking for the BEST hair oil, though, i would recommend jasmine oil – it’s £1 for a massive bottle in boots near the ethnic section but it will change your life. lovely blog btw x
