My Review: Coconex Coconut Oil

My Review: Coconex Coconut Oil:

Hi Friends,

Hope everyone is doing great and enjoying the festive season!! :-)

Coconut Oil is something which is not new in my skincare and hair care regime.I have been using Coconut Oil for my hairs since many years now or I may say since my childhood. Also, during the winters when skin becomes too much dry, I have used Coconut oil.
Not only this, Coconut Oil has way too many uses apart from these basic uses. I have already done an article on this telling Great Uses of the Coconut Oil

Recently, I was introduced to a new brand of Coconut Oil called as Coconex. It is a Pure virgin Cold Pressed Oil, suitable for hairs and skin. I have used it many times now and here is everything about the product you guys need to know and how was my experience using it.

Coconex have their own website from where you can purchase and also the brand is quite present and active on the social media platforms. Here are the links, where you can check the brand.

About the Product:
  • It is a Pure Virgin Cold Pressed Coconut Oil
  • Ideal for Skin and Hair Use
  • Ingredients include Virgin Coconut Oil, Aloe Vera, Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E and Vitamin A
  • Coconut Oil helps to moisturize hairs as well as skin. Helps to improve the texture of the damaged hairs.
  • Aloe Vera is very beneficial specially for skin, as it helps to remove sun tan, heals Sun Burns and helps to remove stretch marks. Aloe Vera also reduces dandruff as it has anti bacterial properties in it.
  • Jojoba Oil works as an excellent Hair Conditioner. It also helps to reduce hair fall. Jojoba oil is also known to reduce acne and considered to be good for Oily skin. It is also beneficial in reducing the effects of sunburn.
  • Vitamin E works extremely well as a moisturizer and also helps to control premature aging and lighten the dark spots. Vitamin E work equally good for hairs as it will nourish the hairs and control split ends. Also, it will help to stimulates the hair growth. 
  • Vitamin A protects the skin from the UV rays. It also helps to reduce pimple, acne etc and hence helps to clear out and glow beautifully.
  • Comes in a light blue colored bottle.
  • Retails for INR 180 for 60ml of product
  • You can get this from their website Make sure to use special coupon code "SH20" to get 20% discount.
  • Light weight texture
  • Has a mild fruity fragrance
  • Works as a natural sunscreen
 Also, I would like to take a moment to explain what exactly " Pure Virgin Cold Pressed" Coconut Oil means: It means that the oil has been extracted by pressing the coconut milk out of the Coconut, at quite a low temperatures. This way it is ensured that all the Nutrients and the Antioxidants, Minerals remain intact. So, If an Oil is extracted through this method, it obviously makes it more effective and pure.

My Experience:

Firstly, the quality is really amazing. Cold pressed oils are always better than the normal refined oil. So, it is always great to get a product which have awesome ingredients and more importantly the method used to manufacture it ensures that the nutrients are intact and users can get maximum benefits from the same.

The texture is quite thin and get absorbed into the scalp or skin instantly. For my hairs I generally applied this oil overnight and washed it off next morning. I could definitely feel my hairs to be more shiny and manageable. They were bouncy and not at all sticky..

Currently I am not experiencing any hair fall problem, so could not comment how much will it work to control hair fall. Also, the fruity fragrance mixed with that coconut oil could be annoying to some people. I personally would have preferred it to smell like just authentic coconut oil and not a mix of strawberry\vanilla and coconut.

Shelf Life is 2 years, which I think is pretty decent.

But the quality this Brand is offering is really commendable. It is very safe to be used on skin. My friend is using this oil to treat her cracked heals and it is working pretty good. It do provide ample amount of moisturisation and keep the skin nourished.

I would suggest that if you are looking for a new Coconut Oil to try and specially when winters will be approaching soon, you should give it a try.It will work great as a body lotion too. It is of INR180. But I have a special coupon code of 20% off specially for my readers. Make sure you take full advantage of it . It is "SH20". Buy here

Dry Skin Care Tips....How To Take Care Of Your Dry Skin...

Hi Friends, My last post was regarding 'Oily Skin Care tips', so in continuation of that series today i have 'Dry Skin Care Tips'..
How to keep your skin hydrated and maintain in a proper way...

The main problem or the most important aspect of Dry Skin, is to keep it hydrated..
Now,one can get or have a dry skin texture by birth or due to number of factors..Lets see in bit of a more detail:
  •  First and foremost reason is By Birth. One can have dry skin by birth...So it is God gifted.
  • As you age,your skin tends to reduce its oil content in it and moves towards dry or combination side..So, Age is the another factor
  • Very low consumption of water and Liquids
  • Wrong Eating habits
  • Improper Lifestyle or too much of stress
  • Being too much in sun or in pollution
  • Skin reacts differently in different seasons, so in Winters your skin tends to get more dry..
  • If you are living in a very Cold Areas..Like Hill Station etc where most of the time it is kind of winters, then obviously your skin can be more towards dry or combination side.
 How To Take Care Of Your Skin, If It Is Dry:
  • The most important thing is to keep your skin hydrated..For this try to drink lots of water. Infact not only water for that matter, drink lots of Liquids..Be It a Fruit Juice or water or Lime Water etc. The main purpose is to keep your skin hydrated and moisturized.
  • Try to drink Coconut Water, if possible..Too good for Skin!
  • Always apply a good moisturizer.Now, for oily skin people it is always recommended to use light texture or gel based formulas...However, for you dry skin guys..try to pick more rich formulas...Only light and gel based formulas may not be sufficient to fulfill your skin moisture needs..Try to go for more thick and rich hydration...
  • Oils work great for dry skin..You can use Coconut Oil, Olive Oil or Baby oils...All work good for dry skin.Olive oil is quite rich in anti oxidants and works great to provide that right amount of moisture to skin or dry patches..
  • Facial oils are blessing...both for Oily skin or Dry skin...Just choose the right one..
  • Dry Skin often faces issues like flaky skin, dead accumulated cells thus making skin look dull and dry. Exfoliate. Guys, scrub or exfoliate your skin regularly...Once in a week...It really helps to clean all those dead cells and dry flaky skin..will help to get you a smooth skin...I have a full article on the benefits of Exfoliation..Check out that..
  •  Take a proper diet..Eat lots of Fruits and Veggies..
  • Always think, see and then select a skin care or a beauty product. Do not follow the trend blindly. Just check whether the ingredients or the texture is suitable for dry skin or if a beauty product is soap based, then definitely continuous use of that product will make your skin even more dry... Choose a product which is mild, not soap based..
  •  For Dry skin choose beauty or skin care products having oil or cream based rather than water or gel or soap based...So, that these products will help your skin to cope up its oil need.
  • If you have time or on weekends, try to make use of some of the natural products which are easily present in every household and works magically for dry skin like Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Honey, Aloe Vera Gel, Curd, Milk....Try to use them for your skin care....There are so many ways to use them...Check out my blog for your suitable DIY...

Patanjali Beauty Products Haul.....

Patanjali Beauty Products Haul.....

Hi Friends, As a herbal and organic skin care or hair care products, here is my separate Haul post consisting few of the Patanjali Beauty Products i recently purchased.
I would be sharing these Patanjali products with you guys with a brief description about all the product like price, pics or what does it claim etc. So, lets get started..

Things I bought:
  1. Patanjali Coconut Oil
  2. Patanjali Sheetal Oil
  3. Patanjali Almond Hair Oil
  4. Patanjali Lemon soap 
  5. Patanjali Rose Soap
  6. Patanjali Mogra Soap
About The Products:

1.Patanjali Coconut oil : My first purchase is this Coconut oil.I have been wanting this from really long time now. Have heard real good things about it. But sadly whenever i use to go to my nearest shop. it always use to be out of stock. So, now that i have finally got it, let me use it for about a month and then i will be doing a separate review about it. It says on the packaging that it is Edible, but i dont know actually people use it that way or not.I strictly got it as my beauty product. It retails for INR 65 for 200ml. Best thing about Patanjali products are that they are super affordable.

2. Patanjali Sheetal Oil: Second thing i got is this Sheetal oil, which is supposed to relax your mind and body. It helps in getting rid of headaches or even sleeplessness or body aches. Whenever after coming from work, i am very tired and exhausted, i like to massage this oil little bit in my hairs, its cooling sensation helps to give relief and reduces stress. It says it also helps in joint pain and hair fall and dandruff. I have used it for 2-3 times and i am loving it. It retails for INR 55 for 100ml of product.

3. Patanjali Almond Oil: Almond Oil is known to be very good for hair growth and conditioning. I thought to give it a try too. I have not used it yet. It retails for INR 50 for 100 ml of product.It says it will soften the hairs, condition them and prevents hair fall. 

Lastly i bought three soaps, and believe me guys all the soaps smell so good and organic. These does not smell like artificial strong fragrances. They smell really natural and mild. My personal favorite is rose one.My whole bathroom smells heavenly when i use it. Mogra and Lemon were also good. For the prices, i am sorry i threw the packaging. I think the rose and lemon ones were for somewhere around INR 50.

So, those were my recent Patanjali Purchases. Separate review on some of these products will be coming soon. 
Till then, Happy Reading! and do not forget to like and follow my blog.......

Great Uses of Coconut Oil:

Great Uses of Coconut Oil:

Hi Friends, today i would be sharing some of the amazing uses of coconut oil apart from using it as a hair oil. Some of benefits\uses of coconut oil are so great and it can also really help to save money on some of the costly high end beauty or skin care products. 
 Coconut oil has a anti bacterial property and anti fungal property which helps in deep conditioning of skin and hairs.
So, here we go:

  •  Most popular use of coconut oil is in hair oiling. Applying it 2 hours before taking bath on hairs and then washing it off  makes hairs so soft and shiny. Coconut oil can also be applied on hairs overnight,but oily skin people should avoid it since it makes face little oily which can lead to breakout(has happened with me). From ages coconut oil is considered as one of the best oil for hair growth and nourishment.
  • As a body moisturizer: In winters when our skin is so dry that sometime applying just a simple body lotion wont serve the purpose, you can opt for coconut oil. It can be used as skin moisturizer which helps to keep skin supple and soft more effectively. You can use it as it is or can be mixed with your favorite body lotion too.
  • Good for cuticles: Coconut oil has everything to take good care of nail cuticles. Applying coconut oil and massaging it properly on the cuticles will keep them soft.
  • Can be used as a Lip Scrub: Mixing coconut oil with sugar makes an excellent lip scrub.It really helps to exfoliate lips gently and removing the dead cells or skin, making them soft and supple.
  •  As a makeup remover: Why to spend money on all those expensive makeup removers when you have coconut oil in your kitchen. Yes, coconut oil removes all kind of makeup including those rigid water proof eyeliners and mascara. Take some oil on cotton pad, keep it on your eye for about 2-3 seconds so that it will break all the makeup and then wipe it off. Coconut oil will remove any kind of makeup like mascara, blush, foundation etc
  • As a shaving cream: If you are planning to shave your legs, try to put coconut oil on legs before it. Massage the oil on your legs and then shave off, it will leave your skin more smooth than a regular shaving.
  • Coconut oil is also know for delaying the process of wrinkles or having fine lines on skin. It can be used on stretch marks. So it do have a anti ageing property.
 So, those were some of the benefits of coconut oil, i am sure there might be many more.
Hope you guys like it. Do share your thoughts. Happy Reading!
