At a recent meeting, I was informed of the miracle that is Coconut Oil.
Using natural products is obviously a great choice, but it is the price that deters most people, including me.
I have been a huge fan of Cocoa Butter lotion by Queen Helene, and have been using it for the past few years.
About a month ago, I decided to try out Coconut Oil. After doing some research, I learned that it is best to go with a pure version, one that says Extra Virgin or Organic on the label.
I bought a jar at Giant Eagle for around $12, from a brand called Nature’s Way.
There a lot of different kinds, so I recommend looking for the key words: Pure, Organic, Extra Virgin, Unrefined.
I am very satisfied with the results so far. When you buy a jar, the product is a solid. You can still use it this way, but here is my method: place the jar into a sink filled with warm water for 5-10 minutes until it liquifies. The reasons I prefer the liquid form are that it is easier absorbed, and I can allow it to liquify while I shower. This way it is ready to use immediately when I am finished showering.
A lot of people have written in their reviews that it is a good hair treatment as well.
Here is a link for the brand I am currently using:
With the cold weather my skin has gotten drier, and the Simple Light Moisturizer with SPF is great for daytime, but I needed something to rejuvenate my face overnight.
Customers constantly ask for Cetaphil or CeraVe, because these brands are recommended by dermatologists.
I decided to try out Cetaphil. My skin is sensitive, so either of the brands would be ideal.
I’ve only been using it for two days and it’s amazing. The dry patches on my face disappear overnight. No harsh fragrance, very smooth application. I’ve even used some on my arms and feet!
I have sensitive skin, so finding the right product took a while. With acne flaring in high school and still popping up every so often, it’s been rough keeping everything in sync.
Simple Skin Care.
I’ve used their scrub, towelettes, and lotion.
The scrub is exfoliating yet gentle. I use it in the shower, and on days that I don’t wash my face I use one of their Oil-Balancing Towelettes, because my face can get oily. They have 4 different kinds of facial wipes that can be used for cleansing as well as make-up removal. I use the light moisturizer for a clean, soft finish. They do have a rich moisturizer, and one with SPF as well.
My brother used my facial cleanser in the shower and ended up buying his own. He doesn’t normally use anything, but he said that because of the simplicity and non-flowery scent he liked it.
Try one of their many products, I’m sure you’ll love it! Let me know what you think!
