Fractionated Coconut Carrier Oil & Massage Oil

4 stars
I tried Fractionated Coconut Carrier Oil from goPure as an all over body moisturizer. I did like the fact that the bottle offers a generously sized amount (16 oz). It is completely clear, colorless and did not leave any greasy film on my fingers and absorbed into my skin immediately. I found the consistency to be wonderfully silky and light.

I am one of "those people" with odor sensitivity issues. I can't tolerate people sitting nearby if they are wearing most perfumes and I can't stand using anything scented unless it's really fruity like coconuts or strawberries, etc. That's why I thought if this oil DID have a scent it would still work for me.

Indeed, there is absolutely NO odor to this oil when in the bottle or while applying. "Perfect" I thought!

But the next day where I had applied it my skin had a very strong musty scent that was bothersome enough that I can't use the oil. Maybe my skin chemistry just reacted negatively to it.

Perhaps if I mixed it with an essential oil the smell issue would no longer occur, and I might give that a try. Or maybe I will try mixing a little of it with my shampoo - as I have dry curly hair and often need to apply oil to it after washing. It's just using it straight on my skin that I could not tolerate.

I was given a bottle in exchange for my unbiased and honest review. I appreciated the prompt shipping.
