Gift Guide: Raw Gaia Review & Giveaway 12/27 WORLDWIDE

I never get tired of saying that I love skin care products, especially if they are natural. Even better if they are 100% organic. Until now, I never thought skin care could be “living”. Raw Gaia has been using raw organic ingredients in their skin care line since 2006.

Review

You probably already read that I am obsessed with everything coconut. Thus for my review, I chose the Organic Cold-Pressed Coconut Butter (it’s body butter & hair conditioner). The product comes in a glass jar and as you probably know – glass is the best container for everything (I also always reuse them afterwards). When I opened it, I was surprised to find that the coconut butter was solidified and it also smelled like actual coconut, not the famous tanning lotion scent. It reminded me of the real organic coconut oil I’ve used for cooking. Since trying the real coconut oil as hair conditioner didn’t go too well for me (it left my hair super greasy), I was kind of skeptical towards this product at first.
Putting everything aside, I tested it out as hair conditioner. I found that it wasn’t nearly as greasy as real coconut oil. After I dried my hair, while it was still somewhat greasy – it was manageable (I did shampoo-conditioner-shampoo). I was surprised to find that my hair turned out with a healthy shine and more importantly almost no frizz! That is awesome for me as I’ve tried so many commercial “frizz-free” products and none of them ever worked!
I also tried the Coconut Butter as a body moisturizer. Because it’s an oil base, it’s super easy to spread on the skin and you don’t need to use much. I love cream bases too, but you end up using a great amount it, because it doesn’t spread as easily. My skin felt absolutely amazing and all day smelled like actual coconut. 
I was skeptical at first, but I ended up loving absolutely everything about this product. The main tip when using coconut butter is – use a tiny amount for a hair conditioner and don’t overdo on the body as well.
