Review: COCO2U Nature’s Mineral Skincare Starter Kit
Posted On September 20, 2017
I’m sure that you must have heard of virgin coconut oil (VCO) which is known to have health benefits but the last thing that comes to mind is to massage the grease all over the face. According to some articles which I read, coconut oil has natural antibacterial properties that acts as excellent moisturizer that can penetrates the skin better than any other oils.
Coconut oil has antimicrobial and skin-soothing properties that will leave the skin looking hydrated, not greasy. In fact, virgin coconut oil can speed up wound healing and increase the hydration as well as reduce water loss in dry skin. Coconut oil easily seeps into the pores which makes the skin deeply moisturized. Coconut oil can also acts as a great gentle cleanser through softening the keratin caps and makes exfoliation much easier.
What They Say
Virgin Coconut Oil is an effective component for skin care treatment. With its rich antioxidants that pass through into concealed cells of the skin. The oil helps prevent the formation of totally free radicals molecules that rob electrons from cells in the body. Free radicals damage these cells and connective tissues, vital to keeping the skin flexible and versatile.
Virgin Coconut Oil helps strengthen these cells and connective tissues, helping prevent sagging skin and wrinkling. It softens and hydrates the skin, eliminating filth from the outer layer of the skin making it shiny and smooth.
COCO2U is formulated with Organic Virgin Coconut Oil and Natural Botanical Active Ingredients that delivers wholesome and effective results.
Step 1 – Hydrating Cleanser 30ml
This hydrating Cleanser is designed and formulated with organic virgin coconut oil, aloe vera and AquaCacteen to soothe and hydrates the skin, while providing cleansing. It is excellent for all skin types and its even gentle enough to remove makeup. AquaCacteen is an ultra-refined elixir from an organic cactus (Opuntia ficus-indica) which soothes and hydrates both women’s and men’s skin.
Directions: Wet hands and face, pump onto hands and massage onto damp skin in circular motions and rinse off with warm water. I use this every morning and night.
Step 2 – Pore Refining Tonique 30ml
This pore refining tonique is designed and formulated with Organic Virgin Coconut Oil and Natural Mushroom Extract to help visibly reducing the pore size and also improving its texture and tone. I personally did see some visible changes to my pores during the first week from using this series.
Directions: After cleansing, put a generous amount of Pore Refining Tonique on a cotton pad and gently glide it over the face. I use this twice a day, both morning and night.
Step 3 – Luminous Serum 30ml
An intensive treatment that organically replenishes and rehydrates the skin for instance radiance and softness. This light, fast absorbing, hydrating Luminious serum instantly penetrates and infuses the skin with organic virgin coconut oil, niacinamide, vitamin C, and tropical oils to bio-actively re-energise and rejuvenate the skin, leaving it with a smoother, natural radiance and glow.
Directions: Apply to face and neck after cleansing and toning. I used this twice a day and is currently one of my favourite serum in my daily skin care regimen as upon application, it inspires a very natural glow while rejuvenates my tired, stressed skin.
Step 4 – BioActive Day Moisturizer 10ml
Loaded with Organic Virgin Coconut Oil and natural botanical active ingredients such as Olive Leaf Extract, Grapeseed Extract, and Vitamin E, this moisturiser aggressively increases skin firmness and makes skin more youthful and glowing. Best part is, this moisturiser comes with SPF20 as well.

Step 4 – BioActive Night Moisturiser 10ml

What I Say
I received a box of COCO2U Skincare which features organic virgin coconut oil as the key ingredient. This product also includes natural ingredients that provide rich nourishment to the skin such as aloe vera, aquacacteen, mushroom extract, cucumber extract, virgin coconut oil, yam bean extract, argan oil, and grape seed extract. One thing that I love is that these products is certified organic natural, and its safety is guaranteed through no animal testing, no artificial preservatives used, no SLS, no Parabens, and No Petroleum Derived Chemicals in their products.
This cleanser is quite creamy yet it cleansed thoroughly without stripping off natural oils from the skin just like normal cleanser would do. It leaves my skin clean, and not too dry. I just love how it treats my skin. I just love it.
Pore Refining Tonique
The Pore Refining Tonique has a quite unique texture. It’s water-based but I notice that it contains virgin coconut oil because I can really smell the coconut oil scent. It’s refreshing and great to the skin. I usually spray it on the cotton bud before applying it onto my skin.
I actually like the serum because it contains virgin coconut oil. It has thick consistency with coconut oil scent. It does not leave my skin with greasy residue. I have never encountered with breakout while using this serum. No irritations or redness appeared while using this serum.
BioActive Day Moisturizer & BioActive Night Moisturiser
Both Day and Night moisturizers are great to the skin. They make my skin hydrated on my dry skin area, but it is quite oily on my T-zone. They have creamy textures which get absorbed into the skin in no time. I just love how these moisturizers make my skin glowing. The result is noticeable as early as 7 days. In fact, my dark spots have gradually diminished.
I actually love how it comes in a very convenient package which is really travel-friendly. In fact, it is also great for those who would love to try the product first without burning a hole in the pocket. The main ingredient, virgin coconut oil, aims to help preventing sagging skin and wrinkles.
I must say every single product in this package really give me the result that they claimed to be. However, I cannot comment about the wrinkles and fine lines because I haven’t noticed any improvements on it especially on my eyes area. Maybe constant application for longer period may produce the result that I’m looking for. Nevertheless, I can really feel the softness, suppleness, and hydration from using this product after a month. I actually love these products as they do not make my skin dry, greasy, or even breakouts. I just feel my skin squeaky clean and refreshed.
My Final Verdict
I actually love this basic skincare set because it is travel-friendly, and really makes my skin refreshed, hydrated, and less oily. This set can last up to 4 weeks. The price is quite affordable but can be quite expensive for some people. I would recommend this for those who has dry, combination, or sensitive skin.
