We Tried It: 8 Ways to Use Coconut Oil
Everyone's talking about it, but we wanted to know: Is coconut oil a multipurpose miracle or marketing hype?
"Does coconut oil work as a makeup remover? Technically yes, but I wouldn't recommend it. I applied a little to a cotton ball and swiped it across my eyes, and it did remove most (but not all) of my mascara and concealer. However, it also seeped into my eyes. When I was reading in bed later, I would occasionally blink and wind up with a film blurring my vision -- not ideal. If you're really in a pinch and coconut oil is all you have to wipe away your mascara, you could use it. I'd just be very careful not to get it in your eyes."
