I sometimes wonder what a cavewoman's skin complexion looked like under all that excess hair?!
Anyway, back to the blog...I have spoken to a lot of women recently about their skincare routine, specifically what they use to remove their make up. Up until about a year ago I only used make up wipes and now I steer clear!
Some girls have said to me they use:
Johnson's Baby oil?
Plain, perfume free soap?
Some have even said they just use warm water!
Well I have a new one for you all this evening. Actually, I fib. It's not new at all and i'm more than positive that plenty of women around the globe are doing the same thing.
Pure, unrefined coconut oil, which is like a hard wax until it warms.
I actually purchased this one from Ebay and I use it not just for removing my make up but for these reasons as well...
Dry patches - makes an awesome body butter alternative!
Hair Conditioner - mix a little with warm water and mask your hair in this for around 10 minutes before rinsing!
Scrub - Mix a little with sugar or sea salt depending on how course you want the scrub to be!
Cooking - it is superb when cooking chicken breasts, in curries or Thai food!
Smoothies - I made some absolutely gorgeous Pineapple and Banana smoothies the other weekend...add a dollop of this too for a PinaColada themed smoothie!
I cannot sell this stuff enough and I trade in make-up not Coconuts....
So before you think I have gone a little nuts, grab yourself a jar. It lasts ages, I think this one will keep me going for about 3 months!!
Try it out and let me know what you think,
Thank you for reading and have a beautiful evening <3
