  • Lol thank you for giving it some recognition! I love coconut oil, I buy jar after jar of that stuff. I use it a lot for my hair, shaving, clearing up acne, cooking occasionally, and I'm just starting to use it to grow my eyelashes. Definitely won't go to waste!

    • I haven't used it for shaving yet... Does It get stuck in your razor? That's what I was worried about. I don't really use it for cooking either but my mother has!

    • I use it post-shave in the bikini area to help prevent bumps and itching.

    • Ohhhh, I should try that! Thanks :)
