Product Review: Coconut Oil

20141217_212445

Here at R&R, we are always willing to test out new products to review for you and today I’m bringing you some beautifying and soothing items to try. If you like coconut you’re in for a special treat! The JĀSÖN® product line takes itself very seriously – they started their little company back in 1959 and have stuck to their roots using only wholesome ingredients such as apricot oil, wheat protein, Aloe Vera and Vitamin E, and even peppermint oil. Doesn’t that sound lovely?

So I wasn’t shocked when their Smoothing Coconut line smelled just like a freshly-cracked coconut straight off the beaches of a Caribbean island.

Smoothing Coconut Hand & Body Lotion // Smoothing Coconut Body Wash // Smoothing Coconut Oil

Their moisturizing body wash is luxuriously gentle using botanical cleansers with coconut oil and Shea butter so your skin soaks in the intense, skin-healthy nutrients and feels ultra soft. Their body lotion was creamy, but not too thick. I used it on my hands and feet and they felt nice and moisturized for hours afterwards. I think I’ll use this product a lot during these dry winter months!

I was most pleasantly surprised by the Smoothing Coconut Oil. At first glance, it looked like a body scrub. But after opening it, (and reading the label) I realized it’s pure solid Coconut Oil. I took a tiny scoop of the solid product and smoothed it over my elbows. It was amazing! My skin instantly soaked up the rich oil and felt incredibly soft. I also loved the suggested uses for the oil – some I never would have thought of. Use the oil for taming frizz and fly-aways; soak in your hair for 30 minutes and rinse with shampoo to help minimize hair breakage and split ends; use on chapped lips, nail cuticles, and any dry patches of skin to nourish.

The pure Coconut Oil is also a USDA Organic product – and you can tell they use unrefined, virgin Coconut Oil, rich in nourishing Vitamin E. You can find the whole JĀSÖN® product line here or in the organic aisle of your local grocery store.
