Beauty Benefits from Coconut Oil-A Review

I am always looking for new natural beauty products to introduce into my routine. Over the past year I have heard many celebrities swear by Coconut Oil, whether it's eating it or using it as a body moisturizer the celebs love it.

8oz for $7.69

It's very important when trying anything new that you always try to get it in the purest form. You don't want it to be a lot of additives and then a little coconut oil because then you are not getting the full effect. This Coconut Oil is Organic, and Fair Trade which are 2 things that I always look for in my products.

These are just a few uses and facts about coconut oil.
1.It's a great hair mask if you have dry hair.
2.It can be used on the skin as a moisturizer on your face and body.
3.It has great immunity boosting benefits.
4.Health benefits for your pets!
5.You can feed it to your pets or use it on them if they are dry or suffering skin issues.

You may remember that Supermodel Miranda Kerry did an interview where she said she uses Coconut Oil everyday. Khloe Kardashian says she uses it as a hair masque once a month and puts her hair up in a towel with coconut oil. Supermodel Gisele Bundchen uses this as her body moisturize. If those 3 are not reason enough to give it a try then I don't know what else you need hehe.

How I use it:
I have used it to cook with, especially stir fry and my tofu dishes. My hubby adds it to our after workout smoothies. I also have been scooping some out into a little disposable container and using it on my hair and body. I only use it on my ends because my roots are already shiny enough. I also have been using it on my knees and elbows mostly. I love it, I do not have anything bad to say about it. I have been using the brand shown above and its amazing. My husband who I drag along with me into all my new must try items, loves it.

Kelapo is priced amazing well,I got their 8oz product and that is what I have been using and I am still using. They also offer different size containers so you don't have keep going back to get more :) I absolutely love coconut oil and I will be using it for a long time. It is like anything when consuming it use in moderation it is still an oil. So, although it's great for you be smart about it and don't deep fry foods everyday and expect it to be "good" for you. Use it in a healthier way a few times a week and as an alternative to vegetable oil or other cooking oils.

Go over to http://www.kelapo.com and buy their coconut oil, they even have it in vegetarian pill form if want to take it as a daily vitamin. Follow them on Twitter @Kelapo  for more information about using Coconut Oil!

Review

The claims I stated on this page were not made by Kelapo these are just benefits that I have read in magazines featuring the celebrities. 
As always check with your doctor before trying anything for health benefits.This is just my opinion and how I used the product.
