Coconut Oil As Moisturizer FYI

When using coconut oil as a moisturizer, look for one with all of these characteristics

I have been noticing that my faithful moisturizer has not been adding enough hydration to my skin.

Julia, from Agape Skin Care in Katy, TX  suggested that I try coconut oil.  When I told her I had tried it and didn't like it, she said I needed to look for Organic, Virgin, Cold Pressed and Unrefined Coconut Oil.

I doubted I would be able to find one without going to a specialty market, but I found this one on the shelf of my local grocery store.

It is SO much different than the other type of coconut oil I've tried.

Before I used it, I transferred a small amount of coconut oil out of this jar and into a travel container.

Coconut oil solidifies when cool, but will turn to oil with the touch of your fingers.

I normally do not like the feel of oil, but this one is feels great to me.

I have been applying it nightly for over a month now and I am really happy with the results.

(I still am using other moisturizers during the day - not sure why, but I am a creature of habit.)

Unfortunately, it does not seem to hydrate my hands or lips enough.

I did crave an Almond Joy the first few times I used it!

If you are a fan of DIY treatments or want to try something new, I encourage you to give Organic, Virgin, Cold Pressed and Unrefined Coconut Oil a try!

I'd love to hear about your coconut oil beauty tips!


  1. I love squishing about a teaspoon of organic coconut oil in my mouth every morning for 60 secs and spitting it out. It really cleanses and makes my gums and teeth happy!

    1. Thanks for the great tip! I might have to try it :)
