I recently tried coconut oil (along with a bit of honey) as a moisturizer. I had just previously made a DIY face scrub that included coconut oil and I found it left a bit of the oil on my face after rinsing, so I left the oil on and sort of massaged it in. I found it absorbed super fast and actually left my combination skin feeling nicely moisturized, but not at all oily in most areas. My chin is kind of oily to start with, but it I massage it in a bit more it does absorb there as well. So I decided to try the coconut oil as a moisturizer in place of my store bought stuff as a test for the past week or so. So far I really like it! It goes nicely under my make-up when I wear it. Generally it is not shiny on its own, but if I do not have the half hour to let it soak in/absorb I can apply a bit of rice powder over it and it still looks super natural.
One thing I also really like is it feels light as long as I just apply a bit at a time and massage it in well. And it does not irritate my headaches. Often if I have a headache I have avoided putting anything on my face before because even the stuff that is normally okay would bug me, which means my face would end up all out of sync by the time my headaches were gone (I get migraines that last a couple to a few days), but with this I can use it and no irritation. This is also the time of the month when I usually have some minor to moderate break-outs, but this time I have only had a couple little bumps, not really pimples, just bumps, and then one very tiny pimple. Not sure if that is the coconut oil, but something changed.
Has anyone else ever tried coconut oil as a moisturizer for your face? Did you like it? Feel free to share your skin type and such as well as I think that would be a factor.
