Spectrum Organic Coconut Oil (Refined)
1. Pre Poo My Hair
Since I have frizzy hair that can become super dry, using coconut oil helps locks in moisture. See my pre poo process post HERE
2. Makeup Remover
Tired of buying makeup remover, or looking for a new makeup remover? You may find coconut oil is a good choice. Honestly this is the best makeup remover I've had so far. This coconut oil works even removes my most stubborn eye makeup and makeup in general.
3. Skin Moisturizer
Coconut oil works well with giving my skin the moisture it needs. When I apply this, it's usually after I've had my shower before bed. By morning my skin is so soft and smooth. (Don't worry your sheets won't be greasy from the coconut oil, just DON'T use a lot!)
4. Lip Moisturizer
This Winter had been so cold! Alongside keeping my skin moisturized, I also take of my lips against this cold drying weather. Lately I've been using a dab of coconut oil on my lips, and it keeps my lips feeling soft and hydrated. Remember just don't use a lot of coconut oil when applying!
5. Nail Treatment
I was surprised that placing coconut oil on my cuticles would strengthen and make my nails grow. I'm very pleased with the results!
A few things about Spectrum Organic Coconut Oil (Refined)
- I purchased this jar from Walmart I
think the cost was around $7.00 or
- Less is more. Seriously you don't have to use a lot of this coconut oil unless you want a greasy mess lol.
- If you store this coconut oil in a cold
environment, it will become hard or if it's stored in hot environment, the
coconut oil will turn to liquid. Usually my
coconut oil gets hard and will warm up
when I use it. You can get the
coconut oil back to either state: hard,
semi soft, or liquid. (See package for storing)
Hard Coconut Oil
Liquid Coconut Oil
- Fragrance free, just make sure you purchase the REFINED coconut oil
Even though I use coconut oil, I also use Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Great Value Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1. Hair Treatment
Olive oil is another ingredient I use in the pre
2. Nail Treatment
I soak my nails in a bowl of warm olive oil for 15 to 20 minutes as needed.
3. Makeup Remover
I've only used this twice to remove my eye makeup, but it works well.
4. Olive Oil Bath
I've done this once since I started using olive oil and I liked how soft my skin felt after my bath. I added 4 tablespoons to my bath water
5. Makeup Brush Cleaner
You can also use extra virgin olive oil, baby shampoo and/or dish detergent for washing your makeup brushes. I usually just use a dish detergent and baby shampoo mixture and rinse with water to keep my makeup brushes clean and soft. I hear that mixing extra virgin olive oil in the mixture will maintain softness. I haven't done this yet, but when I do, I'll let you all know my thoughts.
A few things about Great Value Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- I purchased this bottle at Walmart for a little over $3.00
- I keep this bottle in the pantry
- Just like coconut oil, a little extra virgin olive oil goes a long way.
Stay Beautiful! Do you use coconut oil and extra virgin olive oil in your beauty and skincare regimens?
