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?
"This definitely works as a lip balm, but it's a little too messy for my taste. I straight up scooped a bit of coconut oil on my finger and applied it to my lips, which probably wasn't the best idea, since it was super gooey and dripped all over my lips. After cleaning it up a bit and rubbing it in, the oil definitely nourished my lips and stayed on after sipping on my green tea frappe. It smells really nice and I would use it once in a while to nourish my lips at home, but while I'm out or on the go I'd stick to my regular lip balm because it's easier to carry around and apply."
