Hey Happy Friday!
Face issues: I say its the coconut oil - does the same thing to me. I used to wash my face at night and then put coconut oil on my face and in my hair - I started breaking out just like you've described. Also on my neck and upper back where my hair would lay. I don't know whats in it that my skin doesn't like, it was obviously not happy. For YEARS I have washed my face, morning and evening, with a baby wipe. Takes of all the make up and daily grime, and exfoliates at the same time. I also use Oil of Olay (the original) and my face is never dry. I buy the huge box of wipes at Cosco and they will last about 2 years (hubby uses them too - hey big boys need clean tooshes too!) I RARELY get a breakout.
The furlough thing sucks - but big high fives for putting that money aside to fill in the gap! Nice going!
I never did start the vitex. I read a bunch of stuff that was all conflicting information about how it is for post-menopausal women. So, I decided to pass. Libido is still not there.
