Multipurpose Holy Grail
I knew this product would be good, but I am honestly blown away! I bought the rms coconut cream as a makeup remover since I feel guilty using so many wipes that just pile up in the trash. It is so easy to use and is almost relaxing. Just take a little bit and massage it onto your face to get all of that makeup off. Eye makeup was so easy to remove, especially since this product is nonirritating. I thought that I would still need to wash my face afterwards, but it left my face feeling so clean and hydrated (not the least bit stripped, which is great for me considering I have really dry skin). In fact, I didn't even need to use a moisturizer after! And it leaves a pleasant smell on your skin. I will definitely be repurchasing this, even though that will be a while off since you only have to use such a small amount! Love, love, love it. p.s. this actually works really well as a deodorant, too! ;)
This works great, I love the packaging and it smells really nice. It takes my makeup right off. However, it really is just virgin coconut oil. I read reviews saying you can't get this in store, but I've got a jar that's about 15 times bigger than the jar I bought here that's organic virgin coconut oil and it works exactly the same - plus I got it on sale for five dollars. So I'm not sure what is different about this product compared the organic stuff you can get at the store.
Amazing, Amazing, Amazing
I just got rms coconut cream a couple of weeks ago and so far it is my new go to wonder cream. I have blonde eyelashes so during the day I have to get that mascara deep down to the lash line or I tend to look pretty crazy. But at night, with super sensitive skin, getting it all off was a huge chore. Everything else I have tried has left my skin irritated, mascara residue in my lashline or both. Not to mention the "peek to see if your face is clean" cleanser in the eye. So I was all but resigned to ending the day with pink teary eyes and pink skin and my better half wondering why I was crying. But this coconut cream saved me!!! Just a tiny amount quickly gets even the in between eyelash mascara out, I can even peek to check. I don't even need to moisturize, since this doesn't leave my skin dry and irritated, just moisturized and refreshed. Just to show I stuck some liquid liner on my hand, let it dry for an hour and you can see how well it works with no irritation. And it smells like heaven, my only problem is everytime I use it I get cravings for coconut cake....
If you were already blown away by the magic of coconut...
There's more. One of the reasons I truly believe in rms is because I know every ingredient, particle or element is of the highest quality there is. Sure, I might opt for the generic brand's cooking oil but when it comes to my face - no way. Knowing what grade of ingredients shouldn't be such a mystery or chore so thank you, Rose Marie for saving me the time researching. The rms Raw Coconut Cream is just that - the highest grade of unrefined coconut oil there is. The top shelf stuff. I usually get into physical fights with most makeup removers - something you'd see out of a bad infomercial - tugging at my eyelashes too hard to get the day's mascara off, using cotton pad after cotton pad with a plethora of black stained cotton now skattered all around the bathroom floor...only to end up in a losing battle looking like Rocky Balboa with two swollen black eyes from 1) the products just not working and 2) harsh chemicals causing my sensitive eyes to swell. With rms' Raw Coconut Cream there is no battle - just soft supple skin that smells as heavenly as my skin looks (not to toot my own horn or anything). That's not to say that the generic stuff doesn't have a place - it just relocated to my kitchen pantry instead.
I only got the rms coconut cream in the mail today but I can already tell I'm going to love it! It smells nice and fresh, for one thing. It feels even better, and it will last a really long time because I'm only using it for my face and I just needed a tiny bit! I heard it's good for acne prone, oily skin, and so far it is -- I didn't change anything else in my beauty routine and my skin today is not nearly as oily as it usually is by this time, and it still feels clean and refreshed. I'll be using a little bit twice a day and I can't wait to see what else it does for my skin (maybe prevent new acne by keeping oil levels down and my skin cleaner, and maybe help fade hyper-pigmentation from old acne?)! And since the only ingredient is the organic coconut oil I can be sure that nothing bad is going on my skin with my moisturizer. That in itself might help with my acne since it isn't irritating for sensitive skin. I'm very happy already with this product and will most certainly purchase it again when I eventually run out!
I love this stuff!
I love coconut oil and this stuff is amazing. I use it primarily as a moisturizer (on my neck, arms, chest) and as deodorant after my nightly shower. I don't know if I would be confident enough to use it as a deodorant for the day, but when I wake up in the morning, I smell like paradise. It's really more on an oil than a cream, but it's an amazing product. It's pretty pricey since it is beauty grade, but I will likely buy it again.
This product works as a makeup remover and as a moisturizer. Normally after I wash my face, I have to use a makeup remover to get rid of whatever my face wash doesn't get, which would be my mascara still in my lash line. After I use the makeup remover, my face would feel so beat up, I don't want to add anything else to it. I love how my face feels after I use this. After the second night, I noticed that my face was a lot brighter and softer. A little goes a long way.
Wasn't too impressed
Was so excited to try this cream. Realized it's raw so it'd liquefy at room temperature- so the first time I opened it and it spilled all over the counter, I admitted it was my fault. Got a new one and put it in the fridge. Took it out before my shower but it was too solid to use. Realized I had to plan it beforehand and leave it out so I could use it after I shower - sorry, but that's too much work. Must admit, it was great once I used it (used it as a body moisturizer), and a little goes a long way. But still, the $18 jar lasted me less than 2 weeks. Sorry, but I've used products from the organic store that do the same thing for a fraction of the cost. Won't be purchasing again.
I was on the fence
It is raw organic coconut cream, which it is really an oil. It was liquefied when I revived it. So I stuck it in the fridge, since it is 80 degrees here in LA, CA. I took it out, and i had to scrape the product to get any, and then rub it on my face. I admit when I did use the product, it is lovely. It removes my makeup effortlessly. I do use a toner after, since I don't like the feeling of extra greasy skin. It smells nice. I used it around my nose when I had a cold and it was raw from blowing so much, works like a dream. It is pricey for what it is, considering I could purchase raw coconut oil from a healthfood store for less.
I've tried many coconut creams, oils and serums. This was actually given to me as a gift and quite honestly I was not that impressed. I wish I could give this a better review because when I received it I was so, so, so excited to use it. Unfortunately though, it didn't take my makeup off AT ALL. And since I have sensitive skin, I was hoping it wouldn't irritate me, but it did, mainly around my eye area though. If it works well for other people I'm happy to hear it, but for it wasn't that great and I wouldn't purchase it for myself.
