I have been using coconut oil to shave my legs and pits for quite a while now… and I mentioned it to A, who initially poopooed the idea saying it would make her smell of coconut.
Coconut oil is FANTASTIC for shaving… it leaves you with an incredibly close shave, but no soreness, no dry skin. Your skin will be silky soft and moisturized.
But over the weekend, she ran out of shaving foam for her legs and decided to give it a go. And then said to me “You were right Mum, it is FAB!”. And I have to agree with her it is.
Since then, not only is she using it as a shaving medium, she uses it as a moisturizer, C has started using it to shave her legs and pits and also as a conditioner on her hair (C has a grade 2 buzz cut).
And A has shared the tip with all her friends who have also started to use it as a shaving medium…
And they have all decided that smelling of coconut isn’t so bad after all.
And a quick edit – if you find the oil is gunking up your razor, there is an easy fix for that – let it sit for an hour or two in some rubbing alcohol and then swish in soapy water.
