2015 has been coconut oils year, it's really having a moment. From beauty gurus to health nuts everybody seems to swear by coconut oil for its multitude of uses, of course I was intrigued and decided to give it a try. I got a big jar of Vita Coco coconut oil from Boots for £9.99 and started to try it out, the coconut oil is solid but soon melts into your hand and is easy to use. I was mostly intrigued by all the beauty claims I'd heard about coconut oil so I soon got to work testing it out.
I first used it to remove my makeup and was good, it melted away all my makeup even waterproof mascara without leaving my skin feeling oily, I also used the coconut oil as a body moisturiser and I was really surprised by how good my skin felt after using it. I used it all over my body and it sinks in fast leaving no oily residue or film and my skin still felt moisturised the next day, I've got sensitive skin and it didn't irritate my skin at all however I wouldn't use it on broken skin -the oil is also good for shaving instead of a shaving cream/gel. The coconut oil doesn't have a strong smell so is great for those who don't like heavily scented skincare. The coconut oil is also good as a lip balm and hair mask, it really does have a lot of uses and I think that it's great value for money as it lasts a long time, I can see why it gets all this hype!
