okay, so next up on my quest to rid my life of toxic beauty products: replacing my beloved v'tae vanilla lotion, which sadly contains parabens, with all natural coconut oil.
- smells yummy
- makes skin amazingly soft, especially over time
- works great as an overnight hair moisturizer
- super oily and stays that way (it is an oil, after all)
- sometimes the smell is too much
verdict: i love this product, but it's best used at night when it doesn't matter if you accidentally touch your face or hair with oily hands. it also seems to be the perfect solution for the over-drying shampoo issue from the last post. just run oiled fingers through hair, sleep, wash. it works like a dream. (so well in fact that over the weekend i purged my stash of toxic shampoos -- don't worry, i donated.)
of course i will need to find a new day-use product, but luckily kelly tirman is on the job. will keep you posted.
