Have read that it both is and isn't a pore clogger when used on teh face / for oil cleansing confused

Anyone know for sure?

I use it on hair pre swims but tbh don't find it that great on skin, but then I love buying moisturisers gringrin

I have oily/combo skin and use coconut oil on my face, it does not clog my pores.

It actually cleared them out, when I first started using it, blackheads would just come right out when I wiped it off my face.

I personally can't use it on my skin as it causes me to break out horribly. I've tried persevering to see it it got better over time but it didn't improve and took me about s month to get my skin back to normal.

Hate the stuff. Made my face feel like sandpaper and clogged my pores.

I hate it too. It does clog my pores, and my house must be freezing along with my hands as I can never get the stuff to melt.

I break out when I use it on my face. It is fine on my body.

Excellent link, thanks Squoosh!

I've been using sf oil but thought coconut might be better - I do like it for hair and body. Think I'll just stick with the sunflower for cleansing then smile
