SheaMoisture 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Overnight Facial Oil ($9.99) is a new facial oil that’s being added to the Shea Moisture Coconut Oil Collection. I honestly don’t need yet another facial moisture in my collection but this was on sale at CVS. You know those damn sales that tip us into the spending zone.
But like I said I already own quite a few facial oils that I love and use daily so, adding a new one didn’t quite seem like a good idea or at least not a good one until I finish up what I’m currently using like Herbivore Phoenix Cell Regenerating Facial Oil and Good Genes Luna Sleeping Night Oil. But considering the BOGO offer and the fact that I also purchased Sheamoisture’s new coconut face moisturizer it seemed like a good idea at the time.
Here are my review and thoughts.
SheaMoisture 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Overnight Facial Oil comes housed in a 1 oz glass dropper bottle and will set you back ten bucks at most drugstores. I actually five dollars for it at the time I purchased i because CVS was having a Buy 1, Get 1 50% Off sale.
I’ve only been using this a short time but can honestly say I really loved it. It’s a mix of several different oils one, Grape Seed Oil surprisingly be the dominate one in the mix of ingredients. The texture is light but the actually formula is considerably heavier than Argan Oils and other facial oils I’ve personally used in the past. I’d compare the heavy hydration factor to the recent Physicians Formula Organic Wear Bright Booster Oil Elixir. It’s quick enough to absorb and the formula feels light but once on skin it does leave behind a shiny dewiness which doesn’t make it a good pick for daily use in my opinion. I don’t really don’t mind the shininess as I’m going to bed anyway after application. It’s very, very hydrating. I hate to say it because I’ve spent quite a lot of money on a variety of facial oils but this is by far one of the most hydrating ones I own. It’s a rather sad fact to spend $80 plus dollars on formulas that aren’t as hydrating as a simple ten dollar one eh?
I apply as the last step in my skincare and leave it on overnight. In the morning, my face is visibly smoother, softer, and very, very, very well hydrated. It’s not a formula I’d recommend for those with oily skin as it might be too rich. But if you suffer from drier skin this will be a God sent.
SheaMoisture 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Overnight Facial Oil is launching now at drugstores and I imagine Ulta.com will get it shortly.
