The beauty world has countless miracle oils. Moroccan argan oil had its moment of glory, and coconut oil quickly followed for its 15 minutes of fame -- but after a good long run, it's still all anyone can talk about. Everywhere you look, endless uses for coconut oil are being pinned and posted and Instagrammed. It removes makeup! You can shave with it! It'll whiten your teeth! Uses of coconut oil even came up when we interviewed both Giada De Laurentiis and Miranda Kerr, surrounded with the words "love" and "favorite."
Should everyone stockpile gallons of it? Well, before you invest in coconut oil stock, see how it fared in our rigorous road test. We dropped $20 for a big jar of Nutiva Coconut Oil (organic, extra virgin, and cold-pressed) and shared it around the office to see how many uses for coconut oil we could try -- and whether it lives up to its reputation as the reigning "it" oil for hair, skin, nails and teeth.
