I’ll start this by saying I sort of went through a coconut craze. I admit it. Total addict. Could just not get enough of anything with coconut in it. My post gym smoothie? Coconut milk and pineapple with a shot of protein powder. Basically a piña colada protein shake, but I digress… Coconut oil has a ton of health benefits, so I was trying to incorporate as much into my everyday life.
In my search for coconut products, I came across the Skin Trip Moisturizer from Mountain Ocean. It’s a light moisturizer, a bit runny, but it has a smooth feel and is extremely fast absorbing. My first impression was that I was going to need a ton of the stuff, but in reality you don’t need that much. I love that it’s just smear it on and go — fast absorbtion means you don’t have to feel like a grease pit while your skin dries.
This is blended with coconut oil, aloe vera, and lanolin, which means you’re getting a whole ton of natural elements that are awesome for your skin. Coconut oil is an excellent moisturizer, aloe is great for soothing, and lanolin is considered an emollient, perfect for soothing and softening the skin.
Priced at $10 on Amazon, it’s also a great value.
