I've been hearing lately how amazing coconut oil is for skin and hair so I thought I'd see if all the hype was true. I went over to Wegman's on my lunch break today and picked up a jar of Virgin Coconut Oil (unrefined). I must have looked suspicious with my toothpaste, Baby lips lip gloss, and coconut oil because the cashier definitely asked me what I planned to do with the coconut oil! She seemed super intrigued that I was going to use it on my face and hair.
I haven't quite gotten to the hair part, but I did use it to wash my face last night and take off my eyeliner/mascara, and then again this morning. I was kind of shocked that it took my eye makeup off super easily and didn't burn my eyes or anything. Has the day finally come where I'm no longer a slave to Neutrogena makeup wipes?? Anyways, I ran warm water over the jar until the oil melted a bit (it's a solid lump before that) and slather it on my face. Then I went about brushing my teeth before washing it off with warm water. I have to say my face feels and smells amazing. Here's hoping it doesn't cause breakouts, but if it keeps me super moisturized in winter like it's supposed to then I'll definitely keep it up.
Do you use coconut oil? Does this make me a hippie? Stay tuned, hopefully it's the miracle product everyone says it is!
P.S.- Speaking of coconut, that coconut mocha donut shop K-cup in the background? SO GOOD!
