Reason for buying:
I decided to buy this product because I wanted to experience some of its widely reported health benefits:

Ingredients:
100% Raw Virgin Organic Coconut Oil
Free from Cholesterol, Gluten, Preservatives, Additives and GM products

Nutritional value (per 100g):
Energy = 3696KJ/899Kcal
Protein = 0g
Carbohydrates = 0g
Fat = 100g
(Of which are Saturated Fat = 93.9g)
Fibre = 0g
Cholesterol = 0g
Sodium = 0g

Note: Coconut oil is different to all other types of saturated fat because it contains a large % of Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) which get metabolised differently by the body. They go directly from the intestinal tract to the liver where they are burned off as fuel and RAISE METABOLISM.

Taste / What to eat it with?:
The product tasted delicious, nutty, coconut-y and refreshing. I eat 2 tablespoons a day with oats, soup, yogurt, smoothies, protein shakes, coffee, tea, toast, biscuits, muffins, homemade cakes and salads. I found that the product significantly improves their taste. My Chicken salad usually tastes very bland but when I added hot coconut oil to it. It make a considerable difference. I also enjoyed eating it on its own. When cooking, it has a smoke point of 177 Deg C / 350 oF.

Results:
After taking the product for 30 days (both internally and Externally), without changing anything else in my life (Diet, Exercise & Supplements), the changes that I experienced were tremendous. My body fat had been reduced, my skin (face) quality had improved, my energy levels were elevated, my hair looked much better (softer, shinier and smoother) and my sleep quality had improved. The product had worked extremely well indeed.

Skin (Face): (Every other day)
I added 5g (Tea Spoon) to the palm of my hand and let it sit there for a few minutes to melt. (Its very hard in the pot). I smeared it all over my face into a thin layer and left it on for 45 mins before washing it off with warm water.

Hair: (Every other day)
I added 10g (Tea Spoon) to the palm of my hand and let it sit there for a few minute to melt. I smoothed it into my hair, paying close attention to the ends. I left it on for 30 mins, rinsed my hair with warm water and shampoo-ed it twice. I combed my hair, dried it very gently with a towel. 30-45 mins latter my hair was soft, shiny and smooth. I then brushed it.

Storage:
Coconut oil is very stable with a long shelf life (approx 2 years). It can be stored in either a cupboard or a fridge. It is liquid at anything over 24.4 Deg C / 76 Deg F and solid at anything under 24.4 Deg C / 76 Deg F.

Negatives:
The only 2 negatives that I could identify with this product was the price and hardness, however this is quite common with all other high quality Raw Organic Virgin Coconut products.

Should you be buying it?:
If you want to experience the health benefits of coconut oil then I would recommend buying it. Taking it for 30 days both internally and externally would be ample time to asses if it's making any noticeable difference.

Value:
This product has a price tag that would make you put it back on the shelf quicker than you picked it up. However when you consider the hundreds of different reported health benefits that the product offers (internally & externally), it does not sound as expensive.

What else could you buy for your money?:
Lucy Bee's nearest rival is "Biona Organic Raw Virgin Coconut Oil". I found that the taste and health benefits were identical. The only difference between the 2 is the price. The prices of both products fluctuate on Amazon therefore I usually buy whichever one is the cheapest at the time.

Verdict: Extremely Effective Both Internally and Externally - Highly Recommended.

I use this on/in everything from cooking the best sweet potato wedges to adding a little tasty goodness to my morning coffee! I recommend this for anyone looking for a healthy alternative to oil - Plus it does so much more!

I have suffered 19 years with psoriasis with an unsightly, itchy ever expanding patch on my leg. Having totally given up on GP treatments I purchased this item back in May 2014 and started applying it twice a day. I am remarkably pleased to say that after about 4-5 months my psoriasis patch on my leg had completely cleared. I continued applying for a couple of weeks after it had cleared then stopped treatment to see if it would return. Happily I can say nearly a year later my leg is still clear. Astounding result. I can only say this worked for me, I cannot say it will work for other sufferers but if you do suffer and have resigned yourself, like I did, to the believe that there is no cure, give it a try, so glad I did. I have even attached photos to support my review. I have no ties with the product, this is not a promotional advert, just a genuine customer with a good review to share. Ps, not only does it taste good on the food it's also a fantastic after sun moisturiser.

I have never used coconut oil before so didn't really know what brand to buy. I chose Lucy Bee due to the great value.

When it arrived it was completely liquefied, I panicked. I then found out this has quite a low melting point which meant due to the warm weather this had melted. It quickly re-hardened though and was as good as new.

I first tried this as a replacement for oil when making pancakes. The slight coconut flavour was a welcomed accompaniment to the banana and Nutella pancakes I made. Delicious.

I am currently looking for more recipes to incorporate this in! A little goes a long way too so I think this will last a long time. This is so versatile and I've even used it on my hair and on my skin and noticed a difference.

This is, without a doubt, the most delicious coconut oil I have ever tasted (and I've tasted quite a few). I am absolutely hooked. As a butter and oil replacement it is perfect... works brilliantly in all recipes.

This product is pretty amazing. Great quality and at a reasonable price. I use this for a wide range of frying and cooking generally and it's the best product I have used so far.
