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?
"I am the self-professed anti-shaving cream girl from the nasty beauty habits article. Regular shaving cream doesn't moisturize as much as I need it to, so I completely dropped it from my shaving routine. Of course, I was chosen to try coconut oil as a shaving cream. After showering, I rubbed each of my legs with a tablespoon of coconut oil. My legs instantly felt moisturized and I didn't even have to apply lotion after I shaved. I got an incredibly smooth and clean shave from using coconut oil, and even days later, my legs still look shiny and smooth. The coconut oil worked not only as a shaving cream (better, actually), but also as a deep moisturizer -- exactly what a shaving product should do. I will absolutely use coconut oil to shave with from now on."
