I has started using it instead of shaving cream as I kept getting a shaving rash - I m loving it. The best thing about coconut oil is that's it's all natural - no chemicals or preservatives. I will always use coconut oil!

good but not great
I use it to remove make up and it works great. I do not recommend leaving this on your skin as It is a very heavy oil and will clog your pores without a doubt.It will make your skin break out but Hair is a different story. This is lovely as a hair mask. It is great for dry scalps.

worked for me (READ MY TLDR IF YOU SUFFER FROM CYSTIC ACNE)
TRY IT. I've had cystic acne on and off since 4th grade, I'm currently a senior in high school. I put on coconut oil before going to sleep and it has improved my skin more than retin a and benzaclin. My advice is to at least try it. Something else that worked for me (I just want to put it here because the only way I found out about it was specifically looking it up), if you also get a cyst every month or so like I do, try drinking less or no milk (if you drink it). I used to drink tons of milk until a couple of months ago when I simply stopped drinking it as much. Every once in awhile I would have a glass of milk and the next day I would end up with a huge cyst on my face. After awhile I started noticing a pattern and decided to stop drinking milk altogether- it just isn't worth it. What I found strange is that no doctor ever brought this up that drinking milk could be the cause of my problems. I would advise to stop drinking milk in combo with coconut oil, it certainly can't hurt and it could end up being VERY worth it. I just wish someone had told me sooner. ***TLDR; TRY COCONUT OIL, DRINKING WATER, AND DRINKING LESS MILK. IT CAN'T HURT!!***

I recommend (so far)
I started this by using it to remove my makeup, and I did see an immediate improvement, but now I wash my face with face wash and then apply it as a moisturizer at night. my face looks greasy but i don't mind because im not around anyone at night anyways. I started this about 3-4 weeks ago. I feel like it really is helping! Ive had moderate (and sometimes severe) acne on my forehead for the last 6 years and so far this is the best luck I have had! I defnitely say it is worth a shot. A little goes a long way! Good luck!

My particular brand of coconut oil has a line on it saying "Take one tablespoon per day or as instructed by your practitioner" which is how I discovered that I love eating coconut oil so much I have literally eaten it until I've been sick. I can't open the jar without eating it. This is bad because it is essentially a jar of fat. It's a pretty good moisturizer but too oily for my hair. Also it's delicious. Time will yet tell if it's any good (internally or not) for clearing/preventing acne

Might have cause a moderate bump or two, but won't stop using.
Until I found an alternative of course. But really, it is just.. wonderful. Made my skin soft and smooth, glowing and porcelain-like. Really, really huuuge improvement for my skin after using this and my friend even asked me if I had done a facial. Oil production is also decreased significantly, but not completely. It gives my skin a dewy complexion, which is a plus because I'm not a matte-look fan. I don't know why, but my under-eye wrinkles are less obvious. This might be a product of something else, IDK. Just telling you guys. And yeah.. Like other people said, coconut oil does break me out. It gave me one or two moderate bumps. You know, the kind of acne that isn't cystic but isn't mild either? Like a red spot? Yeah.. But that might be because I excitingly applies it 3 times a day and just wipe it off with a dry towel :P . So use sparingly guys.

Loosened up acne deep in the skin.
Cannot stop using daily or you will break out again.
Does not stop acne from springing up.
I started this regiment a full year ago with moderate acne. I had problems with my t-zone and had begun forming nodule pimples around my cheek area. Initially, the acne got horribly visible as all of the deep acne from years of dry skin started loosening up and surfacing. I had a pimple that I hadn't gotten all of when I was 13 resurface. After the initial "purging" I noticed an immediate change in my skin. My skin was no longer red and blotchy from picking or using salacylic acid treatments and acne was very minimal and they would surface and go away within a few days. Here we are a year later. I do see now that you MUST continue the treatment or your skin will go back to that previous state. In my opinion (not a doctor) I believe the coconut oil just moisturizes your face and thus loosens up the acne before it can get too bad. Is this an end to all of your worries about acne? No Is this a good way to prevent acne from accumulating? Yes.

Inexpensive, effective, natural
Before now I didn't have any issues with acne. I suffer from PCOS and was on birth control for many years which helped me have great skin. However, in the past year I've had to come off the pill and that's when my acne began. It got really really bad; both my cheeks and the skin around my mouth were covered with whiteheads, which would subside to dark red pimples. I tried a lot of things to get the acne and the scars under control, but nothing seemed to work. In my desperations though, I was buying very expensive products that were setting me back $60+ each. However, one day I was reading the ingredients and saw a lot of chemicals. I decided to look into essential oils. After doing some research, I decided to make my own facial cream. Because I wanted to use essential oils, I needed a carrier oil and chose coconut oil In the end, my facial cream turned out to be more of a facial serum, which was fine. I started using my serum and after two and a half weeks I can say that it's working. I no longer experience any major breakouts and the scars on my face are much less noticeable. I've gotten two zits since starting applying the serum to my face, both very small. I just wanted to share my experience because in doing my research I noticed a lot of ppl advising against using oils on the face. But in my experience, this serum has worked wonders. Granted, it was not just coconut oil, but I do attribute a lot of the benefits to the product. (This amt of serum is going to last me maybe two months, since I only apply a few drops to my face) 1.1 oz coconut oil, liquid or solid. 2 teaspoons jojoba oil 11 drops lavender essential oil 6-7 drops tea tree ess. oil 3 drops German chamomile ess oil 3 capsules of vit E 400 IU each. (With scissors cut tip of capsule and squeeze product out) I mixed the ingredients together and put the mixture in a dark glass container, keep it at room temperature and dip my finger in to g

-clears little bumps on your face
-lightens skin pigmentation
- you will break out at first, but its just your skin pushing the bacteria out so you wont break out again. so keep useing it!
ive had moderate acne for about a year now, i tired everything from neutragina to Skin ID and nothing worked.:( i was beginging to give up. THEN my mom was watching the today show and she learned about coconut oil. WELL! she went out and bought me some.(awesome mom) and told m,e to wash my face with this. i was sceptical about it at first, but i tried it anyway. in a week i instantly was seeing all my tiny flesh colored bumps start to become big and real zits. i was so mad! then i did some research and relized it was pushing the bacteria out of my face. and the zits didnt even stay for 3 days so it was ok:) but now they are gone and i have less bumps then i though. ive been useing it for a month now and i look more like a normal teenager.:) im begining to love my skin now:)
