I recently changed my chemical-laden shaving cream to coconut oil and that has made a huge difference on my skin.

The skin on my neck is very sensitive and used to get flaming red after shaving. I thought that it was part and parcel of shaving and that there’s not much I could do about it. Since I started shaving with coconut oil my skin takes it much better. Sure it gets a bit red, but not nearly as much as when I used chemical-based shaving creams. So probably the chemicals had a lot to do with it.

And for some reason I’m going through an extended detox at the moment. Due to that I’ve gotten some nasty pimples on my neck. They’ve already settled down quite a bit, but are still there. I used to hate shaving because it turned those pimples really red and angry looking. Of course they settled down quickly but it was obvious shaving irritated them a lot. Even that has settled down after switching to coconut oil.

Coconut oil also makes the blades so much easier to clear. While using shaving cream the space between razor blades used to get full of cream and whatever was coming off my skin. I had to open the tap full before it flushed the blades clean. With coconut oil I just have to run a little water through the blades and they come clean nicely and easily.

The only downside is that it’s a bit messy. I have to wipe the oil into a towel to get it out of my hands. But I’m willing to wash my towels a bit more often to keep shaving with coconut oil.

    Buy an electric razor, they cause zero irritation, and get the job done nice and quick. The rumour about them not being a close shave is not true. My electric razor shaves just as close as my top-end gillette razor. I dont know why everyone doesnt use one.

    Hello Seppo! I couldn’t have said it better. Yes, coconut oil will make your shaving life a lot better, help control your acne problems and tons more.

    I for one is living proof of coconut oil’s amazing anti-acne properties. I used to have regular acne breakouts but ever since I used virgin coconut oil (VCO) on a consistent basis, I have long since said goodbye to acne problems and shaving has never been better.

    Take care.

    Cheers,

    I came upon this website in search of a natural shave cream other than the conditoner/olive oil mix i’ve been using for a few months. Is there any preparation involved with the coconut before each shave or can you use it unheated? thanks.

    I just used it straight out of the bottle. It got little messy though and I found an alternative to coconut oil. I have some herbal based shower gel and one I tried shaving with that. Worked fantastically and it doesn’t make any mess. It’s just some herbal stuff I got here in Thailand, probably anything you find in your supermarkets would work also.
