Hey loves! I hope you’re having a wonderful week.
Over the years, I couldn’t be more thankful for good hair days. But over the last couple weeks, I have been grateful for good skin days, and it is all thanks to this little bottle. Meet my skin saviour, Island Skin Line’s Coconut Oil Virgin Wildcrafted. But first, let’s backtrack a bit….
I’ve always had problematic skin. I’ve suffered from acne since I was in the fourth grade and it has always been a burden. I’ve tried all the over counter products you could think of. I even visited a dermatologist who prescribed Retin-A, and it was of no use. Currently, I don’t suffer from the pimples as frequently as I did as a teenager but I do suffer from minor breakouts especially in the summer and dark spots.
Summer has always been the worst time for my skin. The intense heat sends my skin into a frenzy, and it rebels. While I live in Jamaica, which is summer most of the days, when the summer season rolls around, it is incredibly hot.
As summer approaches, I was a bit apprehensive about finding a solution to combat the harsh weather. A couple of months ago, I had an allergic reaction to a particular body product and had to seek some alternative to alleviate my pain.
In my Google research, (Yes, I’m one of those persons who consult with google first before visiting a physician), coconut oil seemed to be the solution to my issue. I was quickly discouraged and thought my problems wouldn’t go away as a 10ml bottle of coconut oil in Jamaica costs around $2,000-2,500 JMD which is equivalent to $15-19 USD.
My significant other suggested that I still browse the nearby pharmacy to see what other products could be used. As fate would have it, I found Island Skin Line and the price wasn’t ridiculous and it’s Jamaican made which was a big plus as I enjoy supporting my fellow country men and women.
I paid roughly $10USD for a 120ml bottle and lasted me a month and a half. Over the course of 6 weeks, my symptoms not only cleared up but so did the annoying breakouts I had, due to lack of water and copious amounts of sugary drinks.
Overnight, my annoying pimples and rashes disappeared, and my skin had this strange glow about it. I was unsure whether or not this bottle had worked this well so last month, I decided to purchase my second bottle, and I must say that this thing works!!
The effects of summer have slowly crept in my skin has started to react, but it has been minimal as I have been using the coconut oil religiously.I use it under my makeup as a moisturizer, as a makeup remover, and as a night cream. My skin has never looked or felt better.
I plan to explore their skin line further to see what other benefits my skin could achieve. You can visit their website here.
Until next time nuff love!
