Organic Virgin Coconut Oil | Dr. Organic


I am a great lover of natural skincare, looking for pure and nourishing ingredients. And for the last two months, I've been testing the Dr. Organic Virgin Coconut Oil range. Available exclusively at Holland & Barret, this is a line your skin will thank you for. We've all seen the recent explosion of coconut oil based products. From milk and water to skincare and makeup, we have gone coo-coo for coconuts.  And for a good reason.

Known for its nourishing and hydrating properties, Virgin Coconut Oil awakens dry and tired skin leaving it looking radiant and healthy. After just a few weeks my skin has completely transformed, and I am super impressed.

The weather has turned and whilst I can wrap up in layers to keep myself warm, I always find that my skin takes a hit. My hairline became dry, my skin lacked that glow and my lips were borderline cracked. At the beginning that is. After a few days of using the Dr. Organic Virgin Coconut Oil skin care range, my skin was back and softer than ever.

I was lucky enough to try five very different products, but with ten in the range, you will be able to smother yourself in coconuts from head to toe. So without further ado, here is what I thought.

Dr. Organic Virgin Coconut Oil Day Cream* -  With a super lightweight consistency this packs a lot of punch. It's absorbed quickly leaving my skin plump and smooth. Packed with plant extracts and organic oils this is a wonder to use every morning.

Dr. Organic Virgin Coconut Oil Hydrating Radiance Elixir* -  Perfect to use as part of my evening routine, this elixir is super hydrating. I use one pump after cleansing and awake in the morning with bright, beautifully smooth skin.

Dr. Organic Virgin Coconut Oil Eye Perfect* - Light and silky, patted under the eyes in the morning this brightens and tightens my skin. The pointed applicator means it's especially easy to swipe on even in the early hours. And it sinks into the skin sitting beautifully under makeup.

Dr. Organic Virgin Coconut Oil Lip Balm* - First of all, best lip balm ever. Hands down. This melts onto the lips leaving a silky finish, I can top this up every hour or so for beautifully soft lips. And relax knowing that they're protected against UVA and UVB rays with SPF15.

Dr. Organic Virgin Coconut Oil Body Soufflé* - With a light fragrance this is perfect for daily use. I keep mine by the shower and make sure to treat myself every morning. Like the rest of the range, this is enriched with plant extracts and botanical ingredients designed to nourish your skin, leaving it soft and smooth.

Every product in this range is phenomenal, seriously. It's not often that I rebuy skincare products, I always like to try new things but I've made several trips to Holland and Barrett already. With multiple Lip Balms stashed away and a Body Souffle permanently in my bathroom, I know that I'm onto some winners.

The next time I pop in I'll be picking up a few more bits. The Hand & Nail Cream and the Moisture Melt Body Oil look fantastic. I can't wait!


What winter adjustments have you made to your skincare routine? Are you a fan of coconut?
