I used to spend loads of pennies on beauty products, but over the years I've replaced them all with coconut oil.
Conventional beauty products contain loads of chemicals and some of them are harmful, and they're generally packaged in plastic which I try to avoid.
This huge jar of coconut oil cost £15 and has lasted me well over a year so far. If I used conventional beauty products I'd be spending over £50 (calculated using prices for basic vegan friendly products on Superdrug's website). Here's how I use it...
Under eye cream
Serum - if it's a really cold day, or my skin is a bit dry, I pop some coconut oil on my cheeks before I put my moisturiser on.
Day cream - if I'm not going out I'll use coconut oil as a face moisturiser, but if I'm going outside I use a cream with SPF instead.
Face exfoliator - make a really nice exfoliating and moisturising face mask by mixing coconut oil, oats and sugar - rub in into your face and leave it on for a few minutes before washing it off.
Body scrub - mix a little bit of coconut oil with granulated sugar for a nice gentle exfoliator.
Leave in conditioner - I melt a teeny bit in between my palms and then run it through wet or dry hair.
Frizz ease - I used to use sooo much Frizz Ease, coconut oil doesn't give quite the same effect but it does help keep frizzy hair at bay.
Hair protector for swimming
Is there anything else I can use coconut oil for?!?
