Useful tips: 

-Got it in your hair? Add more! Coconut oil works wonders for your dry ends.

-Save some of this for early mornings. Apply only under eyes for 2-3 minutes and wipe off with a tissue to keep puffiness at bay

-Use a damp warm washcloth to wipe off the scrub for results that last all day!
