Here at Birchbox HQ we’ve been longtime fans of the Vita Coco Coconut Water so when we heard the lovely peeps over there had launched a Coconut Oil we knew we’d love it! Formulated using coconuts from the same groves as their coconut water, it’s a multipurpose wonder with an array of a-mazing uses! Plus, it boasts a unique composition of fatty acids meaning it’s a good-for-you fat!
My main use for coconut oil is to take my makeup off - I heat it slightly with my hairdryer so it melts, put some on a cotton pad and wipe my makeup gently off until the pads are showing no more product. I then take the coconut oil off using a hot cloth. It has made a real difference to my sensitive, acne prone skin (hormonal acne) and smells lovely.
I also use it to oil pull, again melting it with my hairdryer and putting a table spoon full into my mouth in the morning first thing before breakfast and swishing it round my mouth for ten minutes. It is great for oral hygiene and has the added bonus of keeping your teeth clean and white.
I also use it to cook - it's great to fry things in and has a high smoking point! A spoonful a day is really good for your internal health and your skin and hair.
Here are some other uses in case you are interested -
Conditioning hair mask (use sparingly)
Scars and stretch marks
It's basically just a really good, naturally antibacterial moisturiser that you can also eat. Awesome.
I use this as a hair mask, to soak my feet, in cooking and adding to smoothies. Best product ever5
Could buy this in the shop for like £2.99 so a bit disappointed3
It's great to be reminded that sometimes the thing that's right in front of you is brilliant - this sample couldn't have been more perfect. I've been using this on my face, on my hands, after my bath - even on the ends of my hair when it feels dry. Lovely light fresh scent, not too oily or coconutty. I still love my Birchbox every month but this was a great stroke of everyday simplicity.5
Great as a deep conditioning hair mask,restores moisture.4
Really happy with this and would definitely buy it again, i really love the packaging. You can use it on your skin and hair so has different uses which is always great, It's so up to date with the trends as well, love it!5
Great product. I mostly use it as a moisturiser, although I have oily skin it actually helps to balance this out and not make it so oily which is a surprising benefit.4
I love this! I use it on dry hair and leave it on for 10 minutes before washing out.
I haven't managed to use this yet. Random product but good to try new things.2
I love using coconut oil. It really is a go-to for everything.. I used mine for sunburn a couple of weeks ago and it healed it with no peeling. I also use it for chapped lips, dry skin, hair mask.. everything!5
