Coconut Oil

IMG_3236
 My first encounter with coconut oil was introduced by my sister. I remember she would use this as a substitute for face/body moisturizer. I thought it was quite bizarre for her to use it on her body when the common use that I know of at the time was for food. In addition, the oily/greasy texture didn’t appeal to me as a beauty use. Only till I started seeing more and more people using this as a beauty product then I started researching more about the health benefits of this oil.

Stay Hearty.

  2. I’ve heard great things about coconut oil myself. I tried oil pulling at few times, but I’m still getting used to the texture :x

  3. Hi Laurina! I have also heard of coconut oil used for moisturizing purposes, but have you actually started using it yourself, or you are still feeling reluctant? I am now keen to try it myself and see if it is any good, at the moment I am using shea butter which I was told later that doesn’t hold any substantial benefits for the skin, I wonder if you have covered shea butter on your blog, if you have, can you drop me a link on my blog please, thank you sweetie for sharing great info, lots of love! <3
