Oil on my FACE & BODY? I thought incredulously a year ago and now, I wished I had slathered it on decades ago! But it is never too late to start. I've always had oily and sensitive skin and never managed to finish the skincare products I bought because they did not seem to work after 3-4 weeks and some of the rather expensive ones even brought on increased outbreaks for my skin. It was always frustrating and a challenge getting the right product for my skin type and I have literally given up all hope until... I decided to WHY NOT try organic coconut oil! Since the oil is traditionally handmade with the purest intention, I slathered on with no hesitation and have never looked back since! It has helped re-balance the facial oil production on my face over time, softened the skin on my body and I wake up now to glowing skin every day! Even my husband noticed the change after 3 months of using it! Currently, I use koqo's handmade coconut oil to clean off my makeup or sunblock daily. Once a week, I gently massage Koqo's oil (+ Lemongrass) to help tone and sterilize my pores for 30 seconds then put a warm facial towel over my face for another 30 seconds before I rinse it all off gently with a facial wash. Do not scrub! My face feels soft and supple and I use the extra sheer Eye oil to dab around my eye area, lips and neck areas to complete my routine. After my shower, I love to lather koqo's oil (+ Lavender) all over my body on clean slightly damp skin. The scent of infused lavender is calming and relaxing. Your skin will feel softer, smoother and more hydrated after 1-2 months of slathering. TIP: Important to massage the oils into your skin or scalp completely until no trace of oil or shine is on the surface to enjoy the benefits of the natural nutrients in our oils. Less is more, a little goes a long way...and our oils last longer than others! So why is koqo's coconut oil different and rare? It is 100% Handmade. No Machines are used. Koqo's coconut oil is extracted from fresh coconut milk via natural fermentation which produces the highest level of nutrients & anti-oxidants that is great for our skin! Produced in small batches, our coconut oil is always fresh! There are so many amazing benefits of this "Supernut", let's start with koqo! xoxo Adeline
