As far as the beauty world is concerned, coconut oil is not new. Many bloggers and random friends have been telling me about the ‘skills’ that coconut oil has. I finally caved and bout a 100ml bottle from Pick n Pay last week. I planned to use it in conjunction with castor and amla oil in my hair.
I used it on my face. I will never go back. I’ve tried Tissue oil, olive oil and Rosehip oil on my face before and there are huge differences between them and coconut oil.
1. Coconut oil is cheaper: At around R10 for 100ml it’s one of the cheapest oils available.
2. Coconut oil is readily available. I found coconut oil at my local Pick n pay AND Clicks.
3. You can use it on your face AND hair.
4. This is the kicker – It has barely any smell. Yes, no floral, no minty – nothing.
5. It sinks in to my face and once it’s in I can’t feel it.
How I Use it
After washing and drying my face I apply a liberal amount of coconut oil into my palm and massage it on my face in a circular motion.I then apply sunblock and bb cream.
I’ve been using coconut oil on my face for a week now and haven’t broken out, got any blackheads and have experienced no oilyness.
Repurchase? Oh yes!
