Shea Moisture 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Face Lotion ($14.99) is a new, lightweight coconut milk, shea butter, and coconut oil infused facial moisturizer to sooth and soften skin. I purchased this on a whim along with the new Shea Moisture 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Overnight Facial Oil at CVS recently.
I’m pretty happy with my Winter AM daily moisturizer of choice already which is Nip + Fab Soften Kale Fix Moisturizer. It’s lightweight, highly moisturizing, and wears well under makeup. But I’m always game on cheating on my favorite products when something new pops up.
Here’s my thoughts and review on Shea Moisture 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Face Lotion.
Shea Moisture 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Face Lotion is delightful but the packaging sucks. This comes in a 3 oz bottle with a pump but for some reason I have to shake the bottle each time to get the product to squirt out. I’m not sure if it is broke, a fluke, or if every bottle experiences this issue but it is driving me crazy and I thought it deserved mentioning.
Aside from the faulty packaging I actually loved this and can see myself easily using it daily. This one apparently contains a host of good hydrating ingredients like shea. It was created to not only hydrate skin but keep moisture locked in.
The formula reminds me of a thick, light whipped body cream. Don’t worry, it breaks down and becomes delightfully thinner during application and absorbs instantly into skin leaving it soft, smooth, and very nicely hydrated. It wears nicely under makeup and doesn’t leave behind a greasy residue nor does make me shiny. The hydration factor is just the right amount for my dry skin in the day without being too heavy. For sensitive users, it does have a light, fresh coconut-like scent which I found rather pleasantly.
If you live in New York you probably struggle with which skincare to use daily as the weather is quite unpredictable lately. One minute it feels like Spring is popping up and the next the temperature suddenly drops. This is always an issue when I’m rotating my warmer and colder skincare products. This is why I really like products like Shea Moisture 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Face Lotion. It’s lightweight enough to wear in the warmer weather without making me shiny, absorbs easily, yet still it provides plenty of moisture for my drier skin.
Shea Moisture 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Face Lotion is a fab little moisturizer that should be suitable for a host of different skin types. It’s lightweight, absorbs fast, wears well under makeup, and provides plenty of lovely moisture!
