Coconut BabyTuesday, August 9, 2016
I recently tried out Skinny & Co.'s 100% pure and raw cold-pressed coconut goodies! I must say, they make my skin feel silky smooth! So how exactly are they different from any store brand coconut beauty product? Skinny & Co. utilizes wild-harvested coconuts straight from the jungles of Vietnam. Other competitors may add preservatives and/or other ingredients to enhance their recipe however, Skinny promises the integrity of pure coconuts in every jar.
The products offered on Skinny's website are made in small quantities without any chemicals or preservatives. When I first received my package, I was a bit disheartened since most of my products were liquid... But it's been hot so it was only natural for the products to lose their solid form. I placed them into my fridge and they solidified within the hour! So what products did I try out?
BODY BUTTER: Whipped Coconut Oil - Once it's a solid, you can rub it on like solid lip balm. It instantly makes your body shimmer! I must warn you that it smells more minty than coconut but it does make your skin feel moisturized! In addition to using this as a lotion, Skinny's Body Butter can be used on brittle hair!
OIL PULLING: Open the jar and it'll instantly feel like you've eaten a York Peppermint Patty! Don't you just love those? This can be used as a mouthwash to can reduce the amount of stains and plaque that builds up over time. I will give you guys an update with my results in the future!
COCONUT OIL: this was the only one I actually thought smelled like fresh coconuts! This product can be digested but I used this as moisturizer! It's a tad bit hard to use in its liquid form... I found out when I brought this to the beach and attempted to apply it all over my legs. I found that the smell fades away quickly though.
FACIAL OIL: I decided to keep this as a liquid to make it easier to wash my face. It works miracles as a makeup remover but I do prefer using baby wash and a dab of Vaseline! This oil is good at the end of the day to wipe off any excess skin that might be clogging up your pores! I'll keep you guys updated with any noticeable differences to my complexion!
SUGAR SCRUB: Smells like COOKIES! I immediately fell in love with this Christmas in a glass bottle scent! I could gobble it all up in one sitting but I was able to refrain myself, whew. I am using this to exfoliate my face and body. Like all sugar scrubs, they're supposed to leave your skin glowing! My face felt very smooth after just one scrub - I will get back to you guys with my results! SIDE NOTE: I have very sensitive skin so I was pleased when I didn't experience any rashes or drying!
As you can see, I brought all of my Skinny products to the beach and only the Sugar Scrub was able to maintain it's crystal solid form. I slathered the body butter and coconut oil all over my legs and they stayed shiny up until I rolled in the sand. As for my outfit, I am wearing a reversible swimsuit from Atelier 2.2 Swimwear. Don't you just love the multiple string back?
