Vita Coco Coconut Oil Review
Hey Lovelies,
I hope you are all well and having a lovely weekend! I'm off work this weekend so I thought I'd use the opportunity to write up one or 2 blog posts for you. Today's post is going to be about the Vita Coco coconut oil which I recently picked up at my local Boots. I was recommended this product by a friend. I've been meaning to try out coconut oil as a beauty product for a while and I was quite excited to finally get my hands on this!
The Vita Coco Coconut oil is not only 100% raw but also organic. The texture of this product is quite hard, but once you rub it in between your hands it quickly turns into an oil. You can use it for cooking, as a shaving balm and even on your face as an oil or eye make up remover. I personally wouldn't use this product as a face oil or on my eyes as I am very happy with my current skincare routine and I'd be worried that it would be too heavy for my skin and cause breakouts. I also prefer using products that have been opthamologist tested around my eye area.
However I have been using the Vita Coco coconut oil as an overnight hair mask and I am loving the results! My hair has been relaxed and I have also had the ends of it bleached, so as you can imagine it is pretty dry. Once a week I scoop about half a tablespoon of this pressed coconut oil out of the jar, warm it up in my hands and smooth it over my hair. In the morning I wash and condition my hair as normal and I have definitely seen an improvement in the condition of my hair since using this product. My hair feels smoother and stronger and I am hoping that it will start growing longer as well! Initially I was a bit worried that using coconut oil on my hair would leave it feeling limp and greasy, but luckily that hasn't been the case at all!
I bought the Vita Coca coconut oil from Boots. 500ml of this product retail for £9.99 which is amazing value considering the multiple uses it has! I am pretty sure this huge jar will last me at least a year. I would definitely recommend picking up this bargain product, unless you don't like the smell of coconut in which case I would say definitely give it a miss haha!
Have you tried using coconut oil as a beauty product? What are your thoughts on it?
Let me know in the comments below and until next time,

  1. I haven't tried this one Nuala! I tried one really similar from Tesco, it left my hair feeling so soft and swishy. I'm like you though, was too scared to try it on my face! Xox
