Okay so I did a little research and I'm concerned about the amount of people saying coconut oil broke them out and saying that it's quite heavy.

Since its coconut, I imagined it to be light and refreshing and unlikely to cause breakouts. I have no idea what to try anymore :/

Lewis maybe they were using refined coconut oil or something. If your is bad and you are desperate it cant hurt to try it. i took the chance and im so glad i did!!! ill get like one little pimple once a week not even now and my face was disgusting. it even lightened all my scars! pretty soon i wont have to wear makeup at the rate this stuff is working.



and also..i use the coconut to cleanse. thats literally all i use on my face now besides water..to cleanse and to moisturize. you might surprise yourself if it works for you.

I tried oils (coconut and olive) but it didn't work for me at all. I guess it would work better for someone who has dry skin as opposed to the already oily skin I have.

 

I found it was actually a herbal capsule that worked for me and got rid of my acne in under 3 weeks and I didn't have to do anything apart from eat these capsules every night.

 

But I agree, some of the treatments out there are just too risky with their side effects so i'd steer well away from them.

I use coconut oil (unrefined, cold pressed, organic) every night. :) It doesn't break me out. I did a spot test first though just to make sure! I guess it's a hit or miss with people like anything else.

 

It really keeps my skin soft, I love it! I'm not sure if it's keeping acne at bay but my skin definitely looks better than it used to. I'm still getting some hormonal acne. (Of course, my skin was at it's best while on Accutane, but I don't think I'm ready for a third course ;_; )

So having read this i am tempted to try coconut oil however I do have my reservations,

 

1) i tried emu oil before with all the ranting and raving about it like in this post lol, and whilst i thought it was working and the skin felt great, after long it broke me out, gave me deep under the skin spots, which left horrible marks for months that have only gone recently. 

 

so, I may try this, that one lewis linked from amazon looks good, have you tried it lewis? I realise this post is slightly old, so maybe more will have updates

 

what would you say about eating it, or taking coconut oil capsules (if they even exist?)
