Skincare Secret: Coconut Oil

by - 15:12:00

Cleansing oils and hot cloth cleansers have been doing the rounds for quite some time now. I've dabbled in both with varying degrees of satisfaction but now I've found a product which removes my make-up like no other.

Lurking in the shelves of Holland and Barrett is their 100% Natural Raw Virgin Coconut Oil. The jar of coconutty, creamy goodness is now a holy grail for me. I've been trialling it for a good few months now (just to make sure there are no breakouts or other consequences) and I can't tell you how pleased I am with it. 

I take the tiniest amount of the product and warm it between my palms to create a more oil like consistency then massage it all over my face (you can do it on the eyes too but I prefer not to). For removing it you can either use a face wipe, tissue or my preferred method - cotton wool. The results - a make-up free, glowing face.

If you have particularly dry skin I know there are people who stop there as coconut oil is lauded as a great moisturiser, but I continue with my regular routine after otherwise my skin would be an oil slick for sure. 

I love this stuff and would love to know if any of you have tried coconut oil as a make-up remover... Let me know as I'm aware it does seem like quite an unusual item to most people (even my friends were a bit puzzled).
