I have long been a fan of coconut oil both as a moisturizer and for shaving. I know it can be used for so many more things (we’ll go through some more later), but those are my preferences when reaching for coconut oil. I have always just used the good old standard coconut oil you can buy anywhere and thought nothing of it…to be fair it was the only game in town. After I discovered the wonders of coconut oil, an odd newcomer entered the block. A new brand that focused on the magic of coconut oil, but put it in beautiful packaging and, naturally, charged a good chunk more for the “same” stuff. I am of course referring to Kopari. They do have a wide array of products – all coconut oil based – but surely the Coconut Melt is no different than my old grocery store standby, right? The only ingredient is Organic Coconut Oil after all. Weeeell….
I know it’s a bit late…as well as another “Favorites” post…but it’s way past time for my Cruelty Free April Favorites!!! Yes, April. Yet again, I wrote this a while ago, but have just now gotten all the pieces together so that it can be posted. I’d be lying if I said April…and now May…wasn’t a crazy month, which is part of the reason I’ve been so absent lately. But fear not, I still have some favorites to throw atcha! 😄 We have a good mix of makeup, with a touch of skincare, body care and hair care. So, we’ve established what’s in store for my Cruelty Free April Favorites. Now let’s dive in!
