Coconut oil and shea butter lotions would be my favorite body moisturizers. Coconut oil being my #1 though. But in order to really get all the benefits, you have to make sure you’re using a cold-processed coconut oil.
I have never heard of Skinny & Co. before and I am so glad they contacted me to try some of their products. This is a small family company, but what makes them set apart from many other coconut oil brands is the idea and the cause they support:
“Our coconuts are WILD HARVESTED from the jungles of Vietnam. The coconuts are hand-picked and transported directly to our plant; a controlled environment ensuring quality. Once cracked open, the coconut meat is put into the closed-loop, dehumidifying Nutralock System™. This extracts the moisture without heat, leaving all of the raw nutrients of the coconut intact.
Raw is better. The majority of coconut oils on the market claim to be “cold pressed,” but are actually heated prior to the pressing process.
This extracts more oil from each individual coconut, yet raises the temperature over 120˚ F and destroys nutritional value. We believe our Nutralock System™ is superior to any other pressing method. Each jar takes about three times longer than other processes and uses 12 coconuts. This is why you can see, smell and feel the difference between our oil and virtually any other oil on the market.
At Skinny Coconut Oil, we guarantee you 100% pure, wild-harvested, raw coconut oil. Try and jar and taste the difference!”
Right off the bat I’ll tell you that all the oils I have received I used them as body moisturizers. Can’t use any oils on my face, cause I break out. I gave this coconut oil a try but same thing happen unfortunately. And I am not into oil pulling thing, so I used it to moisturize my body too, that peppermint heaven smell was a bonus for me since I love it that much!
I tried to use the facial coconut oil to remove my makeup and it didn’t really work for me. It wouldn’t take my mascara off. Then again, none of the oils tried before did a better job, so I didn’t have much expectations, just thought to give it a shot.
I am not a big fan of sugar scrubs. I prefer coffee scrubs instead, I feel that they are more effective and you don’t use as much. But if you prefer sugar scrubs, you will like this one, it smells heavenly of vanilla :)
Skinny & Co. coconut oil applies so effortless and sinks into the skin quick leaving you with well nourished and moisturized skin.
I have noticed a drastic difference in a week or so, specifically on one area of my body: decolletage! The skin texture got so much smoother and supple. And I think it is all thanks to Skinny & Co. oils because that’s what I was applying on my body lately.
I would really encourage you to check out this company and try at least one of their products. Even if they are not that affordable, but the whole idea and story behind the brand is so so inspiring and beautiful. Besides doing what they do, they also build schools, teach english and fund year round farming in Vietnam. I want to be part of their #ChangingTheWorld movement too! So can you, if you decide to buy anything from them.
