My old faithful VCO
I gotta admit that I haven't really looked into a lot of VCOs, but this is fairly easy to find (hello, SM), and I feel like it's priced fairly, though there are slightly cheaper ones on the market. I've been doing the whole Korean "double cleansing" thing but using this before my actual cleanser, and I've to say this has truly made an impact on my skincare routine. It's also great for taking off makeup, as long as you let it sit a bit before you wash your paint off, but I use it regardless if I have makeup or no. Everyone should try doing an oil cleanse first, and see if it gives you clearer, better skin. ;) Anyway, it smells okay enough (like coconut oil lol), but what I really appreciate about it is the squeeze spout. My experience with other VCOs is that the bottles have an open mouth, which is fine for cooking and other things, but for slathering on your face, The Tropical Shop got the bottle top right. It also works great for transferring it into other bottles for, say, a DIY hair conditioner spray. Maybe I'll check out what other brands can offer, but I'll think I'll be sticking to this.
