Pure coconut oil. I use it as facial moisturiser and body moisturiser. Its pretty much cleared up my kerastosis pilaris. I also put a big blob in the kids bath for their skin.
It is also really good for cooking.

Doublewear foundation. Im so happy ive actually found a foundation that actually looks and feels natural and lasts.
