Put the lime in the coconut

Morning all, today I will be scheduling a couple of other posts to go up as I will be gone for a while attending my graduation.

Firstly, I’m going to review Superdrug’s coconut oil, and the benefits of coconut oil more generally.


I have been using coconut oil for a few months now, using it in many different ways such as; cooking, on the face and body, on my hair, and as a shaving cream. I will advise that while you can wear your coconut oil mask to bed I would wash it off properly as prolonged contact with the skin can cause spots, at least with my skin type. I just love this oil because it leaves the skin and hair so gorgeously soft, and my favourite use is as a shaving cream. The oil helps the blade slide without catching the skin, you only need one application, even if you stand under the water and it’s particularly effective for sensitive skin.

Coconut oil is also great for your hair, it aids in the growth and quality of hair and reduces protein loss, leading to more attractive and healthy looking hair. In addition, applying the oil to the scalp can help to prevent dandruff and head lice. As well as hair benefits, coconut oil is fantastic for skin. It acts as a moisturiser, reduces the appearance of skin aging and may help with conditions such as eczema. As well as these benefits I know that coconut oil can also be used to soften cuticles and to remove make-up easily.

The 125ml pot is £2.29 from Superdrug, I would say this is fairly cheap as I know a couple of brands which are cheaper. However, I know many brands that are much more expensive.

Have a great day,
