Coconut & Olive Oil

More all natural goodness!  After I successfully made my own shampoo and conditioner, I wanted to try more DIY all-natural, eco friendly beauty products!
First up, coconut oil.  I've read all over the inter-webs about how great this stuff is, and I know it's quite tasty in the kitchen!  Anywho, one day when I ran out of body lotion I wandered into the kitchen and grabbed the coconut oil to try.  

It's kind of annoying since it's solid at room temperature, so I had to use a spoon to get it out and then I can't stand having any products on my hands, so it was a pain to clean it off.  But, my body felt nice and lovely!  I didn't love it enough to use it constantly, but it's still a great moisturizer.  It's also great as a hair mask!

As for olive oil, my friend Malena told me she's been using it with a cotton ball to take off her eye makeup.  Now, I'm really really bad about taking my makeup off before bed, especially my eye makeup, but one day when I was feeling extra over-acheiving, I decided to try it, and wow!

Literally, one quick swipe and most of my make up was gone!  I've been doing this for a couple nights now and I'm in love!  As a bonus, it leaves your eye area moisturized!
